Marmalade And Tabby Sammy

Yummy! Please pass the catsup.

These kittens are most nomible, Emily Grace B.!



  1. Yum! Fuzzy!!! I will take the whole shebang. MINE!

  2. As for the sandwichness of the trio, all I can hear in my head is my three year old asking “I get samanich?”

  3. Theo’s gonna love this . . .

  4. wuyizidi says:

    All three of them managed to make contact on the axis-of-snorggling. Well done.

  6. Fird Birfle says:

    “Waiter, there’s cat hair in my sandwich….”

  7. Fird Birfle says:

    PS: YAY “Sleppy” Tag !!!

  8. Shelley says:

    oh-oh, ouch… that one guy is exactly what my big boy looked like as a kitayne — 22 years ago. He was a big tabby with golden areas around his face and legs. I am having such a tear-fest today because I had to put him down yesterday.

    There must be some kind of C.O. remedy around to help with this sort of ordeal. Maybe a little tin titled “Help, I’m without my closest, most unconditional companion” and has like jelly beans or Pop Rocks inside?

  9. Fird Birfle says:

    Massive hugz to Shelley !!!

    *iz sad*

  10. victoreia says:

    *stifled giggles*

  11. Lillith says:

    I’m sorry for your loss. Several of us have been through this in the last few months and I sympathize. Ben and Jerry’s has some great new flavors out, the nougat crunch is my personal fave. *HUGS*

  12. Crazy Pants says:

    Oh Shelley! Can you feel me hugging you? I would totally give you a tin with Pop Rocks. Thinking of you!

  13. Shelley, I’m so sorry. Kitayne sounds like a real beauty and a total sweetie.

  15. Oceanview says:

    Even worse “Waiter, there’s a cat in my sandwich!” and to paraphrase a somewhat raunchier limerick, the response is:

    Said the waiter “Don’t shout,
    or wave it about
    or the others will want one too”.

  16. Robin Kiesel says:

    Dear Shelley, what a sad,sad time, I am so sorry for your tremendous loss.

  17. Hang in there Shelley, the pain goes away eventually but the memories and the love stay forever.

  18. Ali-Baba says:

    Shelley you are in my thoughts…it’s never easy to say goodbye to our fur kids. I hope in the days to come you can take comfort in the many wonderful memories you made with him. I know that has helped me since I lost my 17 yr old boy last year.

  19. I so want to nibble on that catwich!

  20. Shelley says:

    Thanks all… yah, he was a big sweetheart. He was part Maine Coon, and really lived up to the Gentle Giant rep.

  21. Yum!!
    Kitteh sammich! Yaay!

  22. emmberrann says:

    That was my thought, too. Hey, Teho, commingetit! Marmie/Tabby Sammich ready for nomming!

  23. emmberrann says:

    Oh, Shelley, sending you much sympathy— And while it seems there’s a big hole in the space where your fuzzybuddy used to be, the only thing I can seem to come up with is that you live with it. With time, the pain is less, but it never goes away completely, The only balm is the knowledge that your loving care gave him many long years with you, and you have so many happy memories to sustain you…. and just maybe, you can hear him, gently chirruping just out of sight, like my much-beloved Mr. Picky does for me…..

  24. dubyah1 says:

    There’s an ‘up the down staircase’ Escher-esque kittinfinity about ’em.

  25. Theresa says:


    Really, do I have to do everything around here? 😛

  26. lds7yrs says:

    Shelley, you’ve come to the right place. The general populace doesn’t get it, but here at CO, everyone understands how it hurts to lose a furbaby. The blorpulent hamster a few posts back reminded me of our family’s first hammie, who used to search for us if she got out of her cage. The memory was sweet now, but still with a hint of sting…she was so cute, and I could use one of her soft furry cuddles today, too. Hugs to you, and gentle, healing thoughts.

  27. lds7yrs says:

    Theresa… we depend on you. Really! You know we couldn’t do it without you!

  28. Theresa says:


    LOOK at what is living just a few blacks away from me. BOOM! BAM! Seriously, I could just walk out the door, a few blocks and be right in front of: THEES!

  29. Awwww, squaterweasels are good to go.
    You get a pass for the cute.

  30. Theresa says:

    Shelley, we’ve all been there. We know– you’re never ready. Soothing purrs from my Dante.

  31. 4leafclover says:

    “I get samanich?”–That is too adorable, Rosemary!

  32. All I can think is that the Marmalade should be in the middle .. cause this just looks like its going to be pretty messy eatings 🙂

  33. Rachael says:

    Shelley, you are definitely in the right place to express your sorrow and receive warm hugs and understanding in return. I know the pain is intense and it seems like it will always be so… but the pain will subside and leave you with lovely memories of a cherished furry friend. I also believe in the Rainbow Bridge and that always comforts me. *hugs*

  34. NorbertsMom says:

    Hang in there – We have all felt your pain. Here have some chocolate covered strawberries 🙂

  35. I think there’s 4 kittens! So nobody will miss one if I take the one in the back, right? 🙂

  36. Jackie Rose says:

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Marco the Magnificat and I are sending hugs, warm thoughts, and a little prayer your way.

  37. Jackie Rose says:

    Has anyone noticed there’s a fourth little kitty in that pile. Two marmies and two tabbies. (Either that, or the poor little tabby is going to grow up with a butt as big as mine!)

  38. Birdcage says:

    I have to admit – I thought it was ONE kitteh sleeping on two fluffy orange slippers.

  39. Saffron says:

    Many many many many hugs to Shelley. It is always a difficult thing to do. 😦 There is something so special about tabbehs and I rejoice that you and your tabbeh had such wonderful years together.

    Am sending you prayers and some Pop Rocks.

  40. Saffron says:

    Oh for corn’s sake, I have 3 tabbehs already and now I need to go get more!

  41. Shelley says:

    You guys are awesome… Day 2 is going much better, thanks to you all.

  42. murkle46 says:

    They’re like little furry Lincoln Logs!

  43. I know. He makes my teeth hurt sometimes, he’s so cute. I don’t want to encourage mis-pronunciation of words, but there are a couple that I LOVE. Samanich is one (or, as my sister pointed out, he might just be asking for a Salmon-wich…which like tuna salad, but gross).

  44. womblegirl says:

    I’m actually kinda glad I don’t live near these beauties, cos I’d never get any work done…

  45. 😥 AWW 😥 I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of your dear, sweet kitty, Kitayne (lovely name), Shelley 😥 I found out last month that my sister had to put down one of their white cats named Snowball due to cancer 😥 Snowball was only 7 years old 😥 I remember him and his brother, Snowman, and his sister, Snowflake, climbing up my legs for attention when they were little kittens 😥

  46. There are two sweet little marmies and two sweet little tabbies in that pile, Jackie Rose 😀 All four look like they need to be cuddled 😀
