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

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

  5. :lol: 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.

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

  7. Look carefully at “shiny eyes,” and I think it’ll come to you. :)

  8. 8O

  9. 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…

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

  11. What did you say?

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

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

  14. Enjoy some grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup!

  15. 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.

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

  17. What kind of mascara does Miss Schnozz use?

  18. 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.

  19. You must be near me (DC suburbs?)… dreary is right :-)

  20. No, I’m in Massachusetts.

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

  22. mmmmm…grilled cheese and soup??
    Can I haf some? I’ll share it with the lion :)

  23. Fird Birfle says:

    “Cuke” “Umbers” = :)

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

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

  26. Pretty? You ain’t lion.

  27. cellarmouse says:

    belly, belly, belly…

  28. My thoughts exactly.

  29. My thought almost exactly– in my head it was “tummy tummy tummy tummy” :)

  30. I was thinking of gently snorgling that belly :D

  31. Scroll down and make a bid, Teresa.

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

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

  34. Such pretty eyes! We love him!

    Bella and DiDi

  35. Stinkin’ cute!

  36. 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…..

  37. 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.

  38. The better to cuddle you my dear. :D

  39. Here’s something you won’t see little cats do, though: :D

  40. Fird Birfle says:

    “WHOOOOO”s gotcher tail??????” :)

  41. Who’s gotcher HEAD? FIVE TIGERS. 8O

  42. 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.

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

  44. mitzithecat says:

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

  45. Or suppressing a lion-cub giggle.

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

  47. Lion belleh: Zerberts at your own risk.

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

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

  50. $126!

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

    that being said…

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

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

  54. 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!

    $129! ;)

  55. $135 :D

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

  56. Gorgeous eyelashes. I’m jealous…

  57. 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.

  58. Excellent ‘hance, Crazy Pants.

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

  59. The h*ll?

  60. Excellent ‘hance, Crazy Pants.

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

  61. 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

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

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

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

  66. Fleurdamour says:

    Looks like he took this one lion down.

  67. First, tell me where mama is

  68. Fleurdamour says:

    Sneaking up behind the photographer.

  69. *snerk*

  70. Fird Birfle says:
  71. Shouldn’t that be, “fwiend?”

  72. 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. :)

  73. smallthunder says:

    Who care’s about soft?

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

    Not to mention (she mentions) — those ears!

  74. $136.50

  75. Looks like he’s sucking his thumb!

  76. Hey, friends, tomorrow is my birthday. A cupcake for anybody who can guess what age I’ll be.

  77. Same than last year +1 ?

  78. You will be 29, skippymom :D

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

  80. bob drummond says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SKIPPYMOM !! Uh.. 39 maybe ?

  81. Fird Birfle says:

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

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