  3. Smart kittens knows that flat-tery will get you everywhere.

  4. Back feet toebeans and harness….MATCHINKS!

  5. Hmm, judging by the harness, is kitteh practicing her protest against the upcoming walk?


  6. So exhausted, even the tail is plankittening.

  7. LisaLassie says:

    But, but, when I looked, the kitten below was the exact same kitty as above. Now I am confuserated. I am couching my complaint as nicely as I can.

  8. Three step brefs & purrs

  19. Mary (the first) says:

    AND her little nosey!! omg!

  20. Mary (the first) says:

    ack.. it’s on the tip of my tongue.. “mackerel” or something..

  21. How do they not squeeze the stuffinks out of that sweet little thing?

  22. Hey! The original post has changed… we look silly. *pout*

  23. They do that just to mess with us. 😉

  24. It’s been a few years since high school biology, but is a picture of plankitten a photoplankitten?

  25. Not an expert here, but I think it’s called tabby when it’s swirly circles like that

  26. Don’t remember if this were ever posted on CO:

  27. So very very sweet. I always want to mess with sleeping baby animals because they conk out so deeply.

  28. Would a shopped picture of a plankitten be a fauxphotoplankitten?

  29. Apparently, big made-up werds stump teh Mod Machine…

  30. THIS is the kind of “occupy” protest I can get behind!

  31. His fur-patter is just like Maru’s.

  32. What is her NAME?! I need to know!!

  33. You’re both right: she’s a mackerel tabby. And a sliver one, at that. Sooooo beautiful…mezmerized by teh swirls…


  35. Cinnamon bun swirls.

  36. 🙂 Science Alert!

  37. Totally Tired out too!

  38. fleurdamour says:

    At least this kitten has skills…and a convenient handle.

  39. I loff how in the first photo, the angle makes it look as though her tail is up in the air!

  40. I love the little half-wink in the closeup!! She knows she’s being watched, but she’s not going to rouse herself to respond! Adorable!

  41. Isn’t that the truth? Anytime, anywhere! 🙂

  42. JLAmusings says:

    Actually swirls mean she’s as classic (bullseye/swirls) tabby instead of a mackerel tabby (stripey). I’ve only ever had one classic tabby- so pretty! Mine are usually mackerels.

  43. Seconded.

  44. *groan*

  45. *snerk* We used to have a big black cat named Alistaire. He came to live with us when I still lived with my parents, and my dad, who is a dog person, became completely smitten with Alistaire. He liked to say, because Al had a long tail, that he could put a dot of glue on Al’s head and stick his tail to his head and it would make a handle.

    My dad would never actually DO anything like that, but it amused him to no end to say it. 🙂

  46. omg that is so funny! thanks wuyizidi, Civil Disobedience Cat just made my day!

  47. AWW 😀 Sound asleep 😀 Julie R., what is the name of your sweet little kitty? 😀
