Who’s a Pretty Kitty?

You are! Yes. You. Are!

Let’s have a closer, right-side-up look at those eyelashes!

Courtney S. traveled to Africa to find her new friend. Next time, Courtney, take us!



  1. MINE!

    And I will luff heem and cuddle heem and call heem George!

  2. Of course I’ll be your friend! In fact I’ll be your BFF! Don’t tust those others here they’ll tell you they are your friend but it’s not true. (shitny eyes)
    I’m your only real friend (grabs litlle lion and runs)

  3. Belly snorgle!

    And I am jealous of those eyelashes! I’ll bet he/she doesn’t have to pay $15 for a teeny tube of “cruelty=free” mascara…

  4. dang it! I think i found another word or Mod Lounge entrance.

  5. Pretty? You ain’t lion.

  6. cellarmouse says:

    belly, belly, belly…

  7. Such pretty eyes! We love him!

    Bella and DiDi

  8. Stinkin’ cute!

  9. You know what they say, “Every Kitteh a Lion!” and in this case is true!

    BTW, don’t ask me who “they” are. They are very secretive and if I told you they would…..


  10. My thoughts exactly.

  11. Simply gorgeous! (gentle -beeeeep- on the nose)

  12. What did you say?

  13. If he told you you would never read about it. . . .

  14. mitzithecat says:

    gotta scratch that tummy! and love the paw across the mouth! maybe he’s sucking his thumb?

  15. Enjoy some grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup!

  16. Thanks for the CO-XeyeCU
    ‘plink plink’ went the strings of my heart.

  17. ooh yum! one of my favorites – especially on a cold snowy day here!

    I said something about the kind of mascara I buy, since this little cutie obviously does not need mascara.

  18. Lion belleh: Zerberts at your own risk.

  19. The mod lounge, that’s what I get for trying to be snicky.

  20. It’s a dreary, drizzly day where I am, and that would be the perfect lunch. I may need to mention unpickled pickles.
    Then again, I guess I can make do with the homemade chicken soup and half an onion bagel I brought, unless somebody wants to trade.

  21. I would pay a hundred dollars for a chance to snorgle that belly.

  22. Gorgeous eyelashes. I’m jealous…

  23. If we’re auctioning it off, I’ll bid $125!

  24. $126!

  25. I was thinking of gently snorgling that belly 😀

  26. one of my life’s dreams (not exaggerating) is to give a lion a bellyrub…

    that being said…

  27. maybe she’s born wit it?
    ’cause she don’t need Maybelline!

  28. mmmmm…grilled cheese and soup??
    Can I haf some? I’ll share it with the lion 🙂

  29. Scroll down and make a bid, Teresa.

  30. What’s the exchange rate for U.S./Canadian dollars?

  31. What kind of mascara does Miss Schnozz use?

  32. Isn’t this virtually identical to the CO calendar page labelled “Lion bellehs need rubs too?” Oh well, it’s definitely the cutest lion since Christian was a cub.

  33. But tracylee, [say in sing-songy voice] it’s a kitteh cat, and I thought you weren’t a cat person…

  34. You must be near me (DC suburbs?)… dreary is right 🙂

  35. No, I’m in Massachusetts.

  36. YEAH, tracylee! Step out of the line, please.

  37. Excellent ‘hance, Crazy Pants.

    Would not have caught those lashes myself. *plink-plink* Gorge!

  38. Excellent ‘hance, Crazy Pants.

    Would not have caught those lashes myself. *plink-plink* Gorgeous face!

  39. Andi from NC says:

    in your eyes
    the light the heat
    in your eyes
    I am complete
    in your eyes
    I see the doorway to a thousand churches
    in your eyes
    the resolution of all the fruitless searches

  40. The h*ll?

  41. I can’t wait to see what you said, since I have no idea what “snicky” means…

  42. Top of the chain predator! Don’t hurt his felines.

  43. 😆 That’s the problem with speacking what we call Franglais (half French and half English often in the same phrase) I should of written sneaky but the sound (ea) is (i) in French.

  44. I see your belly snorgle and raise you a zerbert.

  45. Fleurdamour says:

    Looks like he took this one lion down.

  46. A friend of mine who lives in the San Diego area went to the SD Zoo recently, and posted a fairly close-up picture of a lion. What squee’d me about the picture was that big cats apparently do foldy paws just like little cats; Mr. McLionersons was just sitting there with a chill expression on his face, front paws folded.

  47. Ooh! One of my favorite songs since time long gone. I ♥ Peter Gabriel.

  48. Look carefully at “shiny eyes,” and I think it’ll come to you. 🙂

  49. I wonder if they serve the infamous Cuke Umbers in the Mod Lounge.

  50. Or suppressing a lion-cub giggle.

  51. argh! y’all are incorrigible!

    If you recall, on the last lion cub post, I said I adore Big Cats, just am not a house-cat person, generally speaking… I was even looking for suggestions if there were any Large Breed Housecats.

    a well-intentioned and very much tongue-in-cheek ‘harrumph’ in your general direction!


  52. I like “snicky”. Could be a another level of sneaky such as ” She’s not just sneaky, she’s snicky. ; )

  53. That’s pretty much the story up and down Amtrak land today.

  54. The better to cuddle you my dear. 😀

  55. Here’s something you won’t see little cats do, though: 😀

  56. First, tell me where mama is

  57. $135 😀

    (tracylee, you’re still a cat person. Size matters not.)

  58. Fleurdamour says:

    Sneaking up behind the photographer.

  59. *snerk*

  60. Shouldn’t that be, “fwiend?”

  61. Having had the wonderful and slightly bizarre experience of having a lion cub and two tiger cubs visit my back yard (on leashes!) I can tell you that they aren’t nearly as soft as they look. Also, lion cubs are noisy. 🙂

  62. I know!! They are all the same. a kitteh is a kitteh is a kitteh I love seeing the big ones doing stuff my 10 pounder does.

  63. $136.50

  64. smallthunder says:

    Who care’s about soft?

    Look at those eyes! those lashes! that belly! the paw!

    Not to mention (she mentions) — those ears!

  65. 😯

  66. Wait! We can’t have Peter Gabriel! It’s not a monkey!

  67. Fird Birfle says:

    “Cuke” “Umbers” = 🙂

  68. Fird Birfle says:

    “WHOOOOO”s gotcher tail??????” 🙂

  69. Fird Birfle says:


  70. My thought almost exactly– in my head it was “tummy tummy tummy tummy” 🙂

  71. Who’s gotcher HEAD? FIVE TIGERS. 😯

  72. Looks like he’s sucking his thumb!

  73. Fird Birfle says:
  74. Hey, friends, tomorrow is my birthday. A cupcake for anybody who can guess what age I’ll be.

  75. Same than last year +1 ?

  76. bob drummond says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SKIPPYMOM !! Uh.. 39 maybe ?

  77. You will be 29, skippymom 😀

  78. I think Canadian dollars are about the same as U.S. dollars right now, skippymom 🙂 Although that can change from day to day 🙂

  79. I’m guessing “crewel” and variations thereof.

  80. Fird Birfle says:

    My vote/ guess, is that Sk’mom will be EIGHTEEN!!!!

  81. It’s not the age, it’s the attitude!

  82. Why is she asking if we will be her (his?) friend? Shouldn’t we be begging her to let us be her friends?
