Soopa Koopa!

Super Kitteh Koopa seems a bit mesmerized by the Mad Men retro lamp, eh?

“Greetings from Qatar. This is Koopa, my very curious cat- we adopted him a month ago. This is the first time he met the light bulb and he stared at it for so long, I got to take a pretty decent picture. Love you guys!” -Olivia C.



  1. love the photo. it looks like a home decorating pic. like from Better Homes an Gardens,1960s. Would make a great print to hang on your wall.
    Koopa; hugs to you and your new family. Show off that new name charm, strut it proud, it states ” we are family” 🙂

  2. muito fofo, aqui eu estou precisando de um, para colocar ratos pra correr

  3. CoffeeCup says:

    Koopa is so cute! And “Koopa” sounds exactly like how Kripke on The Big Bang Theory pronounces “Cooper.”

  4. Don’t burn out your retinas there, Koopa.

  5. Ellen W. says:

    He is so pretty!

  6. Nice pic, with all the whiskers and the chubby paws!

  7. it’s a new thing in his environment

    and it looks eminently scratchable

    when his hoomins get home tomorrow, he’ll be there to greet them, tail twitching in purr-punctuated gratitude

    not so much for the lamp with the vertical and in-one-piece, perhaps…

  8. Athena's mom says:

    I’m betting that Koopa has an orange stripey fluffy taaaaail (sing song)!

  9. Theresa says:

    All my cats have been enthusiastic lamp- bathers. But Stinky used to stick his head right up into the lampshade, making a picture that was just classically “him.” 😀

  10. caulder says:

    Koopa is like “What in the world is that light doing there? Is that the sun you were talking about?”

  11. SlaveToCat says:

    Koopa thinks those circles would look better in the horizontal rather than the vertical position. And he is willing to help make the adjustments necessary to the lamp and the desk accessories.

  12. Blue Footed Booby says:

    Where is Koopa’s shell?

  13. Ha! You’re right! 😀 Luv eeet.

  14. That’s been optional since Super Mario World.

    He’s still a real troopa.

  15. Clairdelune says:

    Those peenk kitteh lips and sweet fuzzy chin are killers! *thud*

  17. Sharon Wilson says:

    He’s probably looking for the little dangly chain to swat.

  18. Maybe the light attracted a bug.

  19. twoshortpants says:

    I love it when cats stare so intently at inanimate objects. “What are you hiding?! Reveal your secrets, common household item!!”

  20. Saffron says:

    That is only for cats named Carol Ann. 🙂

    Hello to Olivia and Koopa in Qatar! *waves*
    Koopa is soo beautiful. One of my kittehs stares at lightbulbs too. Wonder why they do that?

  21. Merissa says:

    What a beautiful baby! He’s obviously well-loved and cared-for, too.

  22. Merissa says:

    P.S.: FLUFFY!

  23. violetgreen says:

    There’s a moth in there

  24. Probably and Koopa is about to smack it out of that lamp 😀

  25. AWW 😀 I hope you have many long and happy years with your dear sweet kitty, Koopa, Olivia C. 😀
