We both can't sleep here.

Look, you slept next to the pillow last time. I want to I WANT TO SLEEP THERE. FINE I'LL SLEEP LIKE THIS THEN.


Thanks, Caryn the Hellchick! (She actually took this photo over the back of the couch looking down on the cats, but it's funnier this way.)

>>> SLAP <<<

...and whoa, looks like an armadillo.

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 10:43 AM

Awww, so cute!

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 10:50 AM

I don't even understand your "first post" rule.... so I no follow!

The gray cat's hind legs look like rabbit hind legs.

So cute, but it makes me dizzy to look at them!

It's a furry kittie ball! No need for pillows on the couch, just use these two fuzzies.

The hind feet of the one on the right remind me of a...

Noice. Super cute.

Sweet Jane = first post rule is if you say "FIRST POST!!" it annoys everyone.

Am I right Theo? Am I right? Gold star for Aly?

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 12:00 PM

On Fark, if you write "first post!" the filter changes it to read "Boobies" and forwards the time-stamp by a day.

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 12:17 PM

we think that first post rule stuff is malarky.. this 'escape' site should welcome new viewers and not try to make anyone feel the unpleasant.. SO WE SAY ROLLY POLYS ON THE COUCH=CUTE, RUDE TO SWEET JANE=NOT CUTE..

Well, nautilus cats are always cute, says I!


 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 12:31 PM

Ehn...*me* goes here...ehn!

No, ME goes here...erm ehnehn!!

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 12:48 PM

Haha they're simultaneously snuggling closer and pushing against each other.

My brother used to say "they're loving their chothers" when he was a lil boy. GAH!! So much cuteness.

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 12:52 PM

Cutest part of the picture for me is the paw over the nose. Gotta love the paw over the nose.

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 12:56 PM

Oh man, I'm so glad Meg explained the physics of that photo. I was up WAAAY too late last night writing papers, and this blew my MIND.

And I'm sure Theo was giving only affectionate >>>slaps<<< :-P. Just welcoming sweet jane into the fold. Hee! I will personally never win the comments race. I'm waaay too slow, even when not sleep deprived.

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 01:15 PM

dizzykids, thankee! especially since, as of what? a day ago, people were still first post!!!ing (yeah! i said it!) slap-free....

ElfOWl, not so sure 'bout that--and law school + first exam in less than three days = obsessive checking of cuteoverload...that's the only way i got first!!! post!!! (yup there it is again)

sweet jane
 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 01:31 PM

Aly -- sure, if a gold star's what you want...
More to the point, it annoys *me*.

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 01:43 PM

...and Sweet Jane, since I like the Lou Reed/Cowboy Junkies reference, I'll cut you a little slack. Next time, though, please find a new way to be "clever." It's good mental exercise, anyhow.

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 01:46 PM

uhm, do I sense a little commentroversy here?

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 02:05 PM

Aw great! Another ying yang kittens look alike, now which one am I gonna choose as favorite?

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 02:35 PM

Well. First, I wasn't trying to be clever, or even "clever." I simply was rather excited that I was the first post. It doesn't take much, I know. Second, because this was--until today--one of the only sites I check on a regular basis, I wasn't hip enough to realize that the first post posts were so wicked and annoying. I thought it was all rather sweetly competitive, jostling to be the first to post about cuteness. Guess I need to stop exercising my mind for my finals long enough to clue into comment culture. Third, um, hi, it's your sense of humor calling--oops, connection refused. Fourth, what a bummer to totally love a site, attempt to atone for my foolish error in a lighthearted and joking manner, and then get insulted by the head Grumpypants.

I mean, it's not like I was talking about seal murder or anything. Sheesh.

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 03:24 PM

Can't we just make it officially official? A rule that nobody should complain about being first, I now resign from saying "first post".

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 03:33 PM

Hahaha re: "head Grumpypants". Even the lighthearted controversy over "first post" posts is all pastel colored and cotton-candy flavored. Did everyone bathe today? I think a ::groupsnorgle:: is in order!

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 04:00 PM

Michelle- Wow! Some ones happy!:)

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 04:13 PM

mobius kitties - heh

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 04:49 PM

Woods -- no, but they're *funny*. You can walk right up behind them as they're rooting around in the grass/dirt/whatever and they won't notice you. Then if you clap your hands, they jump a foot in the air [SPOING!] like their snout just hit an exposed wire, but then they land and keep right on rooting around like nothing happened. At least, that's been my experience with 'dillos in Georgia, many years ago. Makes for some fun photography.

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 06:04 PM

"mobius kitties" - that's AWESOME!!!! I'm so excited that there are other math geek/cute addicts out there!

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 06:06 PM

Last I'll say about this (under this post, anyway) -- everyone's got their pet peeves, y'know. I've got mine, you've got yours. The FP thing is relatively common peeve, though, as far as these things go.

And if something irritates me, I'm gonna grumble about it. It's only natural.

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 06:17 PM

Oh my! This is precious. Definately mobius kitties!

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 07:07 PM

Theo, thanks for that incredibly amusing mental image. Great way to finish the day.

A thinker
 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 07:11 PM

These cats remind me a bit of the Pushmipullyu in the Doctor Doolittle books.

BTW, Theo, I think you *are* being something of a Grumpypants.

E. Collison
 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 07:14 PM

i don't, theo. in fact, we have often thought about posting a gratuitous "awww!" when we've noticed that no one has commented yet. because it happens a *lot. the thing is, we never post comments. but we just might start now.

Hey looks like some of the positions my furry "kids" get into, strange, very strange.

 |  Apr 22, 2006 at 09:23 PM

I was going to ask if anyone else tilted their heads looking at this but after reading the comments I lost the "cute".

ummmm....Theooooo?....We all have pet peeves but we also have feelings. Just a little nudge, ok?

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 05:58 AM

Michelle----"Snorgle!" :o)

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 06:08 AM

When people grumble in here, it usually causes cuteoverload comment dramas, and those are about the stupidest things ever. Really, who cares? Ignore it if you don't like it.
(I realize this is possibly a little hypocritical and I apologize for possibly helping to fuel a new cuteoverload comment drama)

 |  Apr 23, 2006 at 07:22 AM

Goodness; gracious great balls of fur!( I know it's really hair)...poetic license...:)
