Little Casanova Kitty Pops The Question

Hello ladies. I am called Poco, aka Chicken Nugget. I am here to make your hearts burst with deep longing and emotion. I am looking for a wife who will love me all my days.

You see, I have been left behind by my mama – she did the best she could, but she could not stay. I have been found and nursed to health by a flock of the ladies. However, there is always room for more.

I am here, in my forever home surrounded by affection and attention from Samantha, Chelsea W. and her mom and grandma. Why don’t you stop by sometime and maybe you will say yes?

  2. skippymom says:

    um, yes

  3. omg… so tiny!

  4. Si ! Si ! Si !

  5. Martha in Washington says:

    A thousand times, yes!

  6. AWW 😀 That is so nice of you all, Samantha, Chelsea W. and her mom and grandma, to give little Poco a loving forever home 😀 If I knew where you live, I would help out with the feeding, the cuddling, the gently wiping with a damp cloth followed by the drying with a soft towel to keep Poco clean, and anything else sweet little Poco needs 😀

  7. “Chicken Nugget?” I want to dip him in barbecue sauce and pop him into my mouf.

  8. skippymom says:

    I think the moderation machine is trying to remind me that I am already married to Skippy.

  9. Rachael says:

    I’ll just pop that little nugget in my mouf and be gone before anybody’s wise to me.

  10. I don’t think bigamy laws apply to kittens. Or to chicken nuggets. :mrgreen:

  11. skippymom says:

    Oh, so I CAN marry him?

  12. Well, in that case, I can say Yes! too. What’s one more?

  13. dgerish says:

    I used to say that too (“what’s one more?”). Now I have 7 felines. It’s the gateway saying to crazy cat ladydom.

  14. Theresa says:

    It’s the Crazy Cat Lady version of “Hey Guys, Watch This!”

  15. Poco, I think you are so so young to be married…but that could get you a show on TLC. Well played, sir.

  16. Is there really anyone alive who could say no to that little face?! I sure can’t…

    Thank you to the ladies for looking after little Poco!

  17. fleurdamour says:

    That is one Kitten McNugget all right.

    The Ap-purr-entice (You’re Furred!)

    Or, The Itty Bitty Kity Commit-ee

  19. Well you seen to be in good hands Pocco so I’ll not worry about you. On the other hand I’ve been visited now for a week by a handsome black cat that come to my back porch and ask very politely for food. He/she eats the food and then goes away, it’s too friendly to be a wild cat so it’s probably a pet that has been abandoned (grrrr) but I already have 4 cats and the city bylaw says I can have only 3, and would my cats accept him or her. I’m very torn about what to do.

  20. addacat says:

    Agh, tiny nommable kittens with tiny claws, all it needs is a barely audible mew and I would give one final squee and die.

  21. skippymom says:

    I wonder what this button does?

  22. Too good for a golf clap. I’m giving a loud clap and cheer!

  23. skippymom says:

    Gigi, I am also feeding a stray black cat who has been coming every day since this past winter. He shows up on our deck and waits for me to bring his meal. He is very nice and friendly and I can tell he really wants to come inside and live with us, but I also have four already. He used to have some nasty-looking coat/skin issues but is looking much better lately. (But I still only pet him with the back of my hand and wash right away when I come in.) Do you have a name for your visitor? I call mine Blackie because I am so creative and imaginative.

  24. Gigi – is it possible he/she might have strayed away from home (and also might have been an indoor kitty who got out somehow)? Even if he/she doesn’t have a collar he/she might have lost their collar somewhere and/or be microchipped. Maybe you could take her/him to the vet and see?

    If not, do you have a friend/family member who would like a beautiful black cat?

    All These Slashes Are Awkward 😉

  25. I meant to add take him/her to the vet and see if she/he has been microchipped and so belongs to someone who might be missing their kitteh. I think some vets have the equipment to check for microchips.

  26. Desdemona says:

    We had a cat when I was a child, who we thought was well and truly “ours” — but then, so did the folks down the block. He did not look straggly, in fact was beginning to look quite chubby, by the time we figured out he was living a dual life. He answered to the name we gave him, (“Snowball,” I think — hey it was the unimaginative 50’s), and also to the name they gave him. Sometimes he would disappear for days and we later learned those were periods when they kept him inside. So, don’t jump to the conclusion that your visitor is necessarily an abandoned cat. He may just be an entrepeneur.

  27. Yes! Yes! Yes!!! But you will have to trim those toenails before the wedding.

  28. skippymom says:

    My cats all came to me. Skippy moved in with me because he liked me better than the neighbors who had him first, and Eddy and Chloe were definitely homeless.
    Francesco, now…in retrospect I think I may have kidnapped and kept somebody’s outdoor cat. I’m not proud of that, but when I took him in he was out on his own in all weather with no ID, and he came in my house and stayed willingly. And he is super-happy with me and gets the best of care and love.

  29. Orcgirl says:

    He needs lots and lots of face kisseseseses!!

  30. For now I just call my visitor “T’it min noir” (pomounced Tee me-in noir) it means little black cat in the local French dialect, not a big leap of imaginatiion either 😆

  31. He is way to thin to be en entrepreneur.

  32. warrior rabbit says:

    Yes! Si! Ja! Da! Yessijada!

    Ok, adding to the random-black-cat-needing-a-home tales of above… My co-worker found a frightened cat in the desert near *nothing* on Mother’s Day weekend. She figured he was a dump, but has no idea how long he was there.

    He’s a tuxie, she fell in love, she took him home. She got him neutered last weekend. However, the roommate’s cat is freaking out and on a hunger strike, and the roommate is unwilling to let the cats just work it out. So the cute, ultra snuggly tuxedo kitty who my co-worker thought was six months old (small!) and is actually 2 1/2 according to the vet is now locked in one bedroom and cries constantly. Which also drives the extant cat more insane.

    The co-worker is now trying to rehome her rescue kitty. She tried the shelters, but they said no (full). If anyone in the SoCal area wants a cute kitty or knows someone who wants a very loving (the co-worker says he glues himself to her) tuxedo boy… there’s a post on Craigslist I can put here if there’s interest.


  33. Poco sweety, you had me at “Hello”. No, that’s not actually true. You had me at “Little”.

  34. I’ve done that before – kidnapped a neighbor’s cat or kitten. One time I knew it was kidnapping and kept her be/c she was a tiny kitten, filthy, and screaming-her-tiny-head-off-hungry, and they obviously were not taking care of her. Another time I did not know until it was too late and she had already been adopted out (it during my fostering years). Another time I ran a “Lost Cat ad” and the neighbors two doors down called me. And I could go on…

  35. Mary (the first) says:

    Dang, he had me at “Hello” too, but mie beat me to the punch. Anyway, I’m single and in need of a kitteh so yes, yes, a thousand times yes!! And if I lived anywhere near any of the lost black or tuxie kittehs mentioned above, they could come and live with me too.

  36. skippymom says:

    Where do you live, Mary? I’m seriously considering your invitation to move in and make breakfasts for you.

  37. Mary, go to your local shelter and adopt!

  38. Robin Kiesel says:

    I second that clap and add my voice to the cheer!

  39. Robin Kiesel says:

    I used to live in house surrounded by acres and acres of woods and people would dump their unwanted cats and they would end up at my door. Yes, there was always room for one more……

  40. victoreia says:

    *giggle* Didn’t know Skippy had the Mod Machine programmed, did ya?

  41. victoreia says:

    Itty! Bitty! Marmie! Tabby!


  42. fleurdamour says:

    I get a lot of golf claps on here for my punning tendencies, it’s nice to get a real one for a change!

    And CO, you missed a punning opportunity by not calling this guy ‘Catsanova.’

  43. fleurdamour says:


    OK, I’ll stop now.

  44. noellesbootcutkittenpants says:

    That’s not a Poco. That’s a Poquito. Un Poquito dulce y precioso.

    zees eez zzzso tragique my heart has burst into explosive leetle beets.

  47. Fird Birfle says:

    zees eez truuuuue.

  48. Fird Birfle says:

    Zippy: may I say, that I admire your signature??

  49. Fird Birfle says:

    @ skippymom:

    *Delighted snerk* esp. re. the last statement, in your item of 10:40 am.

  50. Crazy Pants says:

    Drats! You are totally right. Good thing you are here to pun it out to us!

  51. Fird Birfle says:

    Actually, I feel puzzled over the lil’ guy’s moniker.
    Didn’t I used to think, that the term en Espanol for “chikken” was “PoLLo”, rather than “PoCo” ??? Or am I wrong about what I thought I knew??

  52. Fird Birfle says:



  53. dubyah1 says:

    Hi, for those of us who don’t speak, er, this, doesn’t ‘forever home’ mean an owner? ‘Cuz the early cat-alogue seemed as if from an orphaned kitteh in a foster shelter seeking a permanent home like its luckier siblings.
    Signed, confuzzled

  54. My friend’s indoor/outdoor black kitty was the same way. Turned out he was being fed by every family on the block! We used to say he was community-spirited.

  55. Sweet, sweet dollop of marmalade.

  56. Entrepurrmewer

  57. Now you just know that this lil seducer is going to grow up to be 20 pounds of romping stomping badazz cat.

  58. warrior rabbit says:

    Mary, in rabbitdom we call it bundergrounding. We can arrange for a cat to come to you. Really. I mean, come on. Look at Hobie. He’s a lovebug.
    You want him. You do. You really, really do.

  59. victoreia says:


  60. victoreia says:

    I remember it the same way, Fird. Dialect variance, maybe? Or not actually Español?

  61. Crazy Pants says:

    They named him Poco because he’s small. Chicken Nugget was a close second for a name and I took some liberties cuz I thought it was cute!

  62. kodalai says:

    May I offer a suggestion: many pet stores offer “tranquilizer” air-spray things, like air fresheners, you plug them into a wall socket and they do their thing. That was a great help to our cats when a new roommate moved in and brought her kitties with them, which stressed the native cats out so much they began going bald. After the anti-anxiety thing had been in place for a few days they calmed down enormously and eventually worked out an amicable relationship.

  63. Fird Birfle says:

    “Cute is as Cute does !!!”

  64. KariAnn65 says:

    So, so precious. Oh that I could take Kitty!! My heart is right there! Best wishes as you find a home for this little one. I’m quite sure it will take no time at all!! Love, love, love her!!

  65. victoreia says:

    Ah so, kemo sabe!
