I Haz Hoomin To Hug

[Is easy to hug the hoomin. If you just sit on floor and go ‘Meow?’ Hoomin will pick you up, make all sorts of gooey sounds like ‘Who’s the widdle wuv-wuv, WHO is.’ Then just hop up and clamp on. If hoomin hasn’t fed you in several hours, this move can also be used to strangle. Or so I haz been told.]

  1. It’s true love ❤

  2. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  3. Sweet marmalade has Daddy wrapped around his little paw.

  4. My supercute boy Loki does the same, but he drools a lot.

  5. My heart either melted or grew two sizes bigger. Hard to tell. The sweetness of this is definitely an overload. And I’ll bet Bada Rock doesn’t mind having a wet shoulder at all. Sigh.

  6. That’s a cuddle bug!!! Love this!

  7. Marmies are the best ❤

  8. I miss having a snugglie kitty. Now I get about 35 seconds of cuddle before they want down.

  9. Such a happy marmie! Soaking up the body heat and the love, while reliving the happiest moments of his life (nursing). I haven’t said it in a while, so here goes: Every home should have an orange cat.

  10. Victoria, Mom to 2 Rats (and Two Orange Kittehs) says:

    @Juno – Totally agree. That’s why my home has two of them. ❤

  11. I wonder if he has rubbed a little catnip on his neck? 🙂

  12. As I clicked play on the video, The Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows” came on the radio. Purrrfection.

  13. My friend’s sister had a cat like this years ago. His name was “Baby” and he loved being held like that. He would purr and drool, and every once in a while would draw back, look you in the face, then proceed to put his head on your other shoulder.

  14. Sweet video, and definite Man of CO here!

    We lost our marmie Henry in April, and I still miss him a lot…

  15. @Berg Sorry for your loss. Let the good memories live in your heart.

    I want to show this video to every cat hater that says cats aren’t affectionate.

  16. Some day, could we have 24 Hours of the Men of Cute Overload? This guy definitely qualifies.

  17. I second (and third, and etc.) everyone’s comments about the joy of marmies. Our marmie Punkin (a.k.a. J. Punkington Studebaker, El Punkerino, and of course, at Halloween, Punkinstein) is an absolute Velcro kitty and loves any and all attention he can get.

  18. Phred's Mom says:

    Bunny, you have one heckuva sterling
    idea there. I for one shall commence
    clamoring for 24 hours of Men of CO.
    What say there, Brinke? It’s a winner

  19. I’m jealous. I’ve never had a cat hug me like that. This is one very loved kitteh and one very loved hoomin. ❤

  20. Gigi_the cat lady says:

    Yes 24 hours of Men of CO. is a wonderful idea!!

  21. That’s what I call a CUDDLE!!!
    I SO love Marmies – they are the best! 🙂

  22. Mingles' Mommy says:

    What a sweetheart. One of my cats loves to be held like a baby on my shoulder periodically, but nothing like that!

  23. I love this so much! Even cats know about the axis of snorgling.

  24. @Berg, Sorry for your loss, its hard letting go.

    That purr though, icing on the cake.

  25. My cat was that snuggly only was when she was a scared tiny baby (rescue) – by the time she was a couple of months old, she was all “wait until I feel like it”. Six years later, she requires petting on her personal schedule, will grant me15 minutes or so and then I must remove my hands or else. I’m going to look for a marmie! 🙂

  26. I’ve got a very fluffy marmie (and big) that is a cuddle baby too. The best.

  27. Come on, Brinke … how can you resist a Man of CO Calendar now?!

  28. Berg, so sorry for your loss. I lost my boy cat early last spring too, and I’m sad when I think of him (he was a mush, too!) Checking cute overload reminds me of the good times we had; hope we both get to see our babies again someday in heaven!
