  4. This kitteh looks like a “Baby Winkie” fo sho!!! Purrrfect name!

  5. Haa haa the other eleven arent so behaved. =D

  6. I can’t figure out exactly what I’m seeing on the hind end….is part of the kitteh’s wee butt the same color/texture as the cat tree, or am I just seeing it wrong??

  7. Oh the floof, teh eyes, teh hidden nose, teh widdle pink leep. I is ded……sigh.

  8. I concur that teh floof and teh slightly sad and gorgeous orange/amber eyes are quite deadly!

  9. So fluffayy!!

  10. She’s coming up through a hole in a cat tree. You can see the lower levels behind her.

  11. Winkie!!! Winkieeeeee! What a great name. And a great pwesent.

  12. Toe fluff, love toe fluff….

  13. Baby Winkie looks like a puppet from “Labyrinth!”

  14. OMG i want heeem soooooo baaaaadd! Would love to see a pic once he gets older, i’m a sucker for black/white cats and that oreo muzzlepowsche color scheme is tooo moiche!

  15. the fluff looks was spun from a cotton kitty machine.

  16. oh great – heart melted – head exploded – what a wonderful way to start the day – thanks!!!!!!! =) i want Winkieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

  17. Congratulations on the tie-in deal with the new Muppets movie!

  18. I’d call him Winkie Wonka, cause he looks chocolaty to me.
    Yummmmmy kitty!


  20. Love tiny kitty ❤

  21. I think you’re seeing the inside of the “box” part of the cat tree. Winkie* is sitting inside a carpeted box.

    *short for Vinkus?

  22. AH, I think you’re right! Now I see it. Thanks! 🙂

  23. So what’s the cocktail of the day here in the mod lounge?

  24. Mary (the first) says:

    I did the same thing, couldn’t figure out what I was looking at, at first.

  25. I first thought the description read “a prosh *of* kit-tayns”, and thought “wow, is prosh the collective noun for kittens?”

    It totally should be. A prosh of kittens.

  26. Yes, it should be.

  27. Alice Shortcake says:

    It took me several seconds to realise that Winkie had a white chin, not a head the same shape as Stewie Griffin’s.

  28. What’s the old life from Abfab?

    It’s not just for life, it’s for Christmas!

  29. The weather is just right for Hot Buttered Rum and Irish Coffee, but if you’re located in one of the more temperate zones (and wish to become a little intemperate), the Q-Tini is always a good choice.

  30. LOL THe roundness of it makes it like a cute christmas ornament you can hang on the tree.

  31. I’d like to see how long the tree stays up after you hang this ornament on it.

  32. R u sure this pic is NOT upside down?

  33. I like it! I like it!

  34. He looks so sad!!!

  35. Jeff Bourque says:

    Looks more like a Gremlin before being watered to me.

  36. Oh deary…I desperately need to know what kind of kitty Winkie is!!! PLEASE!!!

  37. Persian

  38. Melissa (IamAuntyEm) says:

    looks like a black n white pokemon ball

  39. I’m amazed you guys saw anything past those eyes!

  40. I nearly busted my fingers trying to grab Baby Winkie through my computer monitor, Tamara 😀 I so want to snorgle that sweet little kitty 😀

  41. SlaveToCat says:

    Random thought: If you thump him on the head does his eyes jiggle back and forth like muppet’s do.

  42. fiiiiiiiiiiiiive marrrrrmieeee (tailio) riiiinnnnngs!

    (yeah i know i’m jumping the song here, but this line doesn’t fit the meter anyway and i needed to post it somewhere to get it out of my head. which makes me wonder why c.o. never posts pictures of earworms…)

  43. He’s a bicolor Persian.

  44. Why is the twelfth day of Cutemas defined to be December 25, which is the first day of Christmas??

    scratchin’ my egg-noggin

  45. i love egg nog!

  46. The faces oon theses animals are so inocent

  47. Whoa Nelly!!! The little wizard of fluffy cuteness became the Grand Master Wizard of all he surveys. Still looks fluffilicious–but is he cuddle-ishis?
