So You Think You Can Cat Dance!

Dear Diary,

I just love being in this amazing competition, even though I’m exhausted. Today Vegas rehearsal lasted one whole hour, but I’m just too excited to sleep!

With such long days of dancing, I feel like I am really growing as a dancer. I wish I could say the same for everybody else.

Already you can tell who is going to make it to the finals. The girl in white has no focus and cannot memorize choreography. The judges are really going to lay into her about that, especially guest judge Maru.

Well, diary, I should get to bed. Tomorrow they decide who the top twenty will be! I’ve got to look and dance my best so that I can move on and meet my hero, Cat Deeley!

I heard it through the grapevine that Funny Cats and Nice Fish can really stay on pointe!



  1. Oh my, that is flippin adorable! I will take the one with white, if the judges boot her!

  2. SQUEE!! Look at all those sweet stripey kitties!! I love that little Scottish fold! And the teeny white one is such a cute non-conformist. This is soooo adorable!

  3. I’d already seen this, but your story just made it ten times better. Thank you, thank you.
    “The girl in white can’t memorize choreography.” snicker

  4. Love this! The one in white is my hero! Be yourself! The little one on the right with the folded ears has a look on its face saying ‘No clue what this is all about, but I better blend in, blend in’!.. #copycat

  5. a pwah

  6. White kitties can’t dance.

    (Well, you knew somebody had to say it.)

  7. HAW!

  8. 😀 😀 😀

  9. I just tried waving a cat toy around at my kittehs to see if they would watch in unison and they were all ‘meh, we would prefer it if you would stick to your usual function which is to provide us with continuous noms’.

    Oh man, one of my geriatric cats (15 yrs and about 3 months) has fleas! And they are all indoor kittehs! He must be allergic because he got a bad case of dermatitis. After switching vets, I finally got someone who figured out what his skin problems were.

    …of course after the diagnosis I immediately got sympathy itching on my scalp. Oy

  10. You have my sympathy, Saffron. Happened to me a while ago – all indoor-only kittehs, must have brought the little b*stards in on my shoes…

  11. I sympathise, the poor baby at least the modern treatment for fleas are simple and a lot less stressful than in the old days of flea baths and powders.

  12. me wants the foldie-scottie one!

    actually, I was thinking the foldie-scottie one was the odd-extra talented one, the “cassie” of the chorus line 😉

  13. and remember having to flea-bomb the whole house?

  14. I can’t help but identify with “the girl in white.” She marches to the beat of her own drummer. 🙂

    When you can see the shadow of whatever Hoomin is whirling to make the kittens look, it’s like seeing the sound boom in the frame LOL.

  16. Poor white and tiger one just gives up mid-routine. And I just want to tell the scottish-fold one sitting mildly in the back — dance! You’re supposed to be dancing for your life!

  17. I kept waiting for the one on the far left to fall off the bed. Or the one in white to knock him/her off. So close to the edge!

  18. Nice one!

  19. I think I hurt myself laughing.

  20. The thing that kills me is the little faux collars they are all sporting… well all but our white non conformist. Snicker.

  21. BWA HA HA! I just watched this while listening to the Chippette’s version (A La Alvin and the Chipmunks #2 movie) of “Single Ladies” sooooooooooooooo funny and adorable!!

  22. I don’t know if it’s the same thing but I remember my mother had this electric burner thingy that you put poison pellets on and then you had to leave the house for hours and hours until it was safe to come back.

  23. I think my favorite part is right after the white kitty jumps off the stage, when the kitty in front almost jumps off, but the one next to it sticks out a paw as if to say, “Wait. That was not your cue.”

  24. Reblogged this on igatherum and commented:

  25. *shudders* Just when I’d managed to forget……

  26. AWW 😀 Who cares about the dancing, I just want to snorgle them all 😀

  27. And here I was empathizing with the white kitteh becos I also am not of the coordinated persuasion! 🙂

  28. I think that one is ADD.

    Oh come on, let me have some of those bellehs, there’s enough to go around!!! I get first dibs on the white one, then the biggest stripey one… mmmmmrrrfffmm

  31. Grand pas de chat 🙂

    Psst! Theresa! Natalia Makarova, on her own dance disasters 😀

  32. If they don’t make it in Vegas, they could consider becoming models – such good looks!

  33. This is one of the most fun things to do with a litter of kittens. It’s only slightly edged out by burying your face in a wriggling, sleppy mass of them.

  34. !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. The second one from the left might be a little slow…:)
