The C.O. Guide to Carnivorous Furniture

A cunning and patient hunter, the Kitty-Eating Loveseat (chompus felix) lures its prey into its upper cushions with promises of tuna and acting work.

“We have this super cute picture of our cat Gaston and we thought you might like it for your website :)” says Maxime M. from France.



  1. 😆 AWW 😆 Your dear sweet kitty, Gaston, looks like he just woke up from a nap between the sofa cushions, Maxime M. 😆

  2. Looks like a KISS kitty!

  3. Tony James says:

    Hey NOMTOM – I’m not normally one to argue, as you know, but Funk & Wagnall’s (Acme Edition) avers that Chompus Felix refers to a cat’s teeth. I believe that the term you’re looking for her is Sofus Ravenus, or possibly Felis Gastonus Digestus in this specific instance. We have a duty, you know.

  4. Raymond says:

    Wile E. Coyote Latin for the win!

  5. Janet in Cambridge says:

    I think that should be Felix chompus.

  6. Smartypants says:

    Gaston sez “secours!” (I’m trotting out my rusty high school French here…)

  7. Not bad but that should be: Au secours!

  8. Theresa says:


  9. That’s what I thought–it’d be Gene Simmons reincarnated, except he’s still alive.

  10. If I can’t haz the toona, can I at least haz a solo in Cats??

  11. Clairdelune says:

    HELP!! DO SOMETHING, HOOMIN!! NOW!!! What do you think I keep you around for!!!

  12. Hah!

  13. Because I am obsessed with the video of people yelling to cats yawning, I can’t see this picture without hearing someone going “bleaaaccgghhh!!” in my head. Which only makes it better!

  14. OMG I love this picture.

  15. Can I use this picture on my website? I will credit the owner if it is ok.

  16. Saffron says:

    You know you can buy the Sofus Ravenus from Acme….

  17. Smartypants says:

    Oh good, thank you! I think I actually picked up most of my French from reading “Tintin” & “Asterix” comics – very educational!
