3. Hold firmly
4. Shove kitteh right up in your schnozzle.
5. Commence snorfing.

  1. *deep cleansing breath* AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!

  2. They start ’em so young these days. *sigh*

  4. That kitteh looks very pleased with the snorfing she is receiving!

  5. sunnylessmum says:

    Stands up in kittehuffers anon mtg, Hi, I’m sunnylessmum and I huff kittehs. Sits down.

  6. Literally one of my favorite pictures EVAR. Can’t decide whom I love more–the adorable little girl with the obvious love for four-legged creatures, or the beyond beautiful kitty with the presh, upward gaze. *swoon*

  7. The kitty is adorable and that child could have come out of a Raphael painting.
    Both of them together is almost more cuteness than I can stand!

  8. I see many years of snorfing fun in their futures.

  9. It works on bigger kittehs too… I do it to my 2 adult kittehs ALLLLL the time. And I’m a grownup. Kittehuffing just never gets old. It’s also very calming when I’ve had a stressful day.

  10. Hello sunnylessmum. Welcome to the meeting.

  11. skippymom says:

    Ha! The kitten could be thinking “I loff you so moische”. Or it could be thinking “Put me down or ye shall perish”. You can read this one either way.

  12. I was thinking:

    Learn to hold me correctly! I need something to rest my hind feet on to feel comfortable! When I was that age, my father was very picky about how I held our pets.

  13. I can just barely see leetle hovering wings on each of them. 😀

  14. This little girl should lead a class on kitten snorfing. Her technique is absolutely perfect (except for the lack of support of the hind end). And I concur that this is an all around adorable photo.

  15. True. But I’ve known cats who were strangely tolerant of what little kids would inflict on them, when that same cat would slice and dice an adult. 😛 My dad’s neighbor’s little daughter brought her big kitty over to show me. Kitty was a significant percentage of the little girl’s body weight, with bits of cat hanging out all over– he was just hanging there, purring.

  16. lisaLassie says:

    Gaaaaahhhhh! Thud.

  17. Yes, I was thinking that those are kitten-angel eyes, looking to Heaven: “Please convince her to put me down soon!” or alternatively “Hey, way up there! See how good I am?? I’m not fighting or scratching or wiggling or hissing…make sure to write it up in my book of good behavior!”

  18. How sweet is this photo?! You can tell they will be lifelong friends.

    Also, the lack of rear leg support is perfectly fine. When the vet scruffs a cat, there is no rear leg support. Why, you ask? When mama cat carries bebehs, how does she carry them? That’s right, with her sharp teeth clamped onto the scruff of her beloved child with back feet a-dangling. Baby does not screech in pain or terror but goes limp in mama’s mouth.

    The way she is holding her friend is not much different than tightly swaddling a human child. Folks might think it looks mean, but both techniques put the baby cat AND the baby human at ease.

    *Rainbows shoot across sky* The More You Know ;D

    I agree. The kitty might slightly win out in my book since it has such a sweet look on its face.

    What does a baggie of huffing kitty go for now a days?

  22. Good heavens. Chubby cheeks all around. Too Adorbs for words!

  23. sunnylessmum says:

    Thank you jujube 🙂 I have to pass on talking though, I’ve huffed a kitteh in the last twenty four hours. [wishes it were true!]

  24. Fird Birfle says:

    “slice and dice” = 🙂

  25. I love the new kitteh smell

  26. The Original Jane says:

    If someone could photoshop a different shirt and background you’re totally on point!

  27. The Original Jane says:

    Yup. There was a documentary on tiger cubs at a zoo that had to be hand raised and this is exactly how they dangled them over the tub to bathe them or the keepers would use this technique to calm them. They went from whining and crying to totally zoned out or even sleeping. It does something to them so that when mom moves them they don’t fight or make any noise and draw attention.

  28. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen this picture now but I absolutely adore it. It makes my heart smile in the best way! My 17 lbs maine coon cross lifts his head like that when I kiss it. 😀 I’m so lucky!

  29. That may explain why so many cats love being massaged behind the ears!

  30. I followed the steps above with a puppeh instead of kitten. Happy to say the results were phenomenal 😀

  31. noellesbootcutkittenpants says:

    This picture is full of happy.

  32. I can surely attest to that. We have an ancient cat who (in his younger, more frisky days) would simply NOT allow you to give him his Depo (Medrol, not Provera, lol) shot without wigging out (or apply Frontline, or put him in a crate to get his shots…)

    My son (around 4 or 5 at the time) would catch the cat, hold him firmly, but gently by the scruff, and tersely telling the cat what he knew to be true, “we’re not huttin’ you, now you be good so we can make you bettuh!”, while I gave him the shot. The cat would not move, or wince, or make an utterance. Now, if my hubby or I tried to make a move for him, he would turn into a whirling dervish of claws and teeth. We could have restrained him like we did for other people’s animals, but the simple act of allowing our kid to do it, was much less traumatic for everyone.

    Many animals are pretty keen on understanding that you don’t mess with your meal ticket’s offspring. I have never figured if it’s because “you might bite the hand that feeds you, but it’s probably best to not do so to their children, lest you might see what ‘angry’ REALLY is” or if they just have some sort of instinctual nature that says, “children of any animal is off limits”. In any case, I am always amazed at the kindness of animals.

    Incidentally, that kid is 20, and that cat is 18 and STILL goin’ strong, though significantly more mellow now.

    (in chorus sing-song voice) “Hi, sunnylessmum!”

  34. But did he also julienne?! Inquiring minds wanna know! 😉

  35. Cutest picture in all the realm (of the internet).

  36. Step 6: Sneeze for the next 20 minutes. But that’s just me.

  37. Yup. I love the eyes on the puddy tat.

  38. I’m pretty sure this picture could stop a war from starting. Let us give it a try.

  39. more than a dime, I bet…

  40. This little girl’s parents never imagined they would ever take a photo in which she was the SECOND cutest thing.

  41. I use the scruffing technique on my 3 cats when they are misbehaving badly(claws raking, teeth biting, beating up on each other or trying to scratch my mom.) I push them down (gently) to lie on the floor with my hand clamped at the scruff. Then I either hiss at them, or say in as low a tone as I can manage: (You. Stop. That. Right. Now!!) It’s very effective & takes only a few seconds. As soon as I release them, they get up and walk away a foot, then turn abound and come back to give me a head-butt. Then everything’s fine again.

  42. Yep 😀

  43. OH, I so want to huff on that sweet little kitty 😀

  44. And considering that she’s lethal level cuteness herself…

    No wonder we’re all ded.

  45. That little girl is even more prosh because she loves the kitty. Kitten loves it! Big time AWWW.

  46. cajuncocoa says:


  47. Breathe. It’s important to take lots of deep breaths and to keep your body in top form when attempting baby talk. Especially because if you keep it up, I’ll have to beat you senseless.

  48. Keep coming back! It works! (huffing kittens, that is) 🙂

  49. Megumi's Mom says:

    The introduction to a life long addiction to kitten huffing… and a life of love and cuteness… yay!

  50. Megumi's Mom says:

    9 yr old tuxie just hopped on my lap to get huffed, (and petted)
