It's Saturday.
I've mowed the back lawn.
That is all I am willing to accomplish today, claws or no claws.

i would ALWAYS work if that anerable kitten was my boss...just awwwwww

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:05 PM

Hey, i saw this on boingboing. A taiwanese kitten right?

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:05 PM

I *wish* this was my boss! <3

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:05 PM

But Boss, it's Saturday!

You want what? A saucer of cream on your desk, pronto?

Yessir, right away, sir!

*whispers* slavedriver...

Look at that pack paw stretched out waaaayy in the back. it's like this kitten goes on for miles!!!
I think I need to start a bring a kitten to work day tradition.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:08 PM

I would immediately and happily do whatever this boss asked of me.

And I would always scratch his sweet little chin when I was done.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:09 PM

um, yeah, about Sunday.... yeah...I'm gonna need you to come in...ok....yeah.

The only downside to having a kitten as a boss is that come performance review time, there's bound to be some hurt felines.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:12 PM

oh dear lord Dustbunny, you made me cough up my water...I should know better than to read this and drink at the same time.
I might even get a job if i could have this kitten as my boss.

I groaned out load, dustbunny. After I snorted with laughter, of course.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:23 PM

Toot Sweet!

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:26 PM

i think this is a message for me.


love this little one's ears...

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:29 PM

Looks like a "Stop constantly checking Cute Overload for new posts on worktime!" look.

I'm sorry to have a sad boxcar update. The next cat we were going to trap, Kitten R
passed away under the boxcars. I found him this morning and took him to the nearest vet so they could cremate him. He was at most, 6 months old.

Laurie C
 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:35 PM

AAAHHHHH, I want one!!!!! *too much cute in one place*

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:38 PM

P.S. That photo is not Kitten R dead, that was several months ago, taken when he was only slepping.

Laurie C
 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:42 PM

So sorry to hear that, LC.
Keep up the good work.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:44 PM

Thanks, Teho. It looks like we have a several-weeks' lull forced on us, though. Of all the regular cats at the site, the only ones not yet fixed are too young or too pregnant.

Laurie C
 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:46 PM

LauriC: I am so sorry about that poor little kitten - I went down to the boxcars to give them cat treats just last Saturday and he was right there snacking away. I shall go and snorggle my own cat extra as a tribute to that poor wee box car cat.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:50 PM

Ack! You called me out. It's a total slacking day.

One of the girls in my office had to bring her kitteh in one day, after it had been to the vet (she didn't have time to go home&back again).
I wish it had been as cute as this little guy!

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 01:02 PM

Hey, browngrl, we were wondering who had left the fishy-shaped treats.

Laurie C
 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 01:03 PM

So very sorry to hear about the kitteh, Lauri C. How sweet of you to care for him! He looked like a Turkish Van, my absolute favorite breed.
*heavy sigh*

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 01:06 PM

E. Collison, I agree - we need some bunnies. Not that the kitties aren't utterly snorgleable... but it's time for a fluffybunny or six.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 01:12 PM

Look! It's a scene from Clean Furry Clean Paws by David Meow-met!

Yes sir Mr. Kitten sir!

Skittles was the understudy for "The Bunny" in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. These days he can be found writing his memoirs and starring in Japanese commercials in his free time.

Aw, I was so psyched out for a moment, thinking that they answered my suggestion to post little Cici here... but someone else beat me to it...

Checkout the flicker group posted above though, lots of kitten contortions on that keyboard.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 02:00 PM

>>>shakes muddled head, confused by recent C-O (Comment Overload™)<<<

I mean, um, OMFG Cici is SO Qte! Her pwnees have a really good camera too or something, those pix are redonk.

and, I am like the cat who ate the canary with my smug satisfaction at seeing further confirmation that cats, as a species of intelligence and discernment, favor Macs. (I feel something coming on....cats on macs??)

Ruble definitely agrees:

finally, to make this my all time longest comment evar, this week I had to write a catchy slogan for geeks. Thanks to my immersion in cuteness, the word popped right up:

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 02:08 PM

oops, forgot to say Laurie C-
What a sad discovery to make...sending some warm, treacly pudding your way, boxcar heroine that you are.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 02:16 PM

Eep! I wouldn't want to argue with the boss! Look at the claws! Yes, sir. No, sir. Right away, sir. Ouch, sir.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 02:29 PM

First, hugs and puddin's for Laurie C. I am very sad about the beautiful kitten R.

I would never get any work done if this kitteh was my boss. Sure, I'd spend hours at the office, but I wouldn't work, I'd be snorgling him all "who's a cute widdle bosskitty then? yes, him is!"

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 02:35 PM

What have you done to this poor kitten's claws?

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 02:37 PM

Sorry, I screwed up my link way above. *This* is Kitten R slepping.

Laurie C
 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 02:38 PM

Well, boss, how can I get anything done with *someone* hogarthing the keyboard all the time.

(Laurie C, many, many hugs.)

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 02:54 PM

LaurieC, so sad to hear about little R... :-(
I'm glad you were able to send him off decently.

You've reached a turning point in this feral colony, having completed your mission to a lull. Bastet blesses you (if I have my Egyptian goddesses right)...

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 03:23 PM

oh that boss is cute, but that kitty combover of his is fooling no one!

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 03:39 PM

LaurieC, so sorry about the kitty. You did what you could. The quiet spell shows what great work you have been doing. Lots of custard with the puddings.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 03:55 PM

happy happy happy

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 04:10 PM

That cat is all, "Not today, Biznatch! No CO for you!"

He's fierce! I wouldn't defy that.

Denita: That was the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my life. I will be clogging up every forum I am on with the link. Thanks for sharing! If they could have done a marzipan Granny flying around, I just might have cried.

...either that, or Rincewind in a mad dash from some random peril...

I guess Death on Binky wouldn't have been very appropriate for a wedding. *grin*

Laurie C: My sincerest condolences on the loss of the kitty...I know that you did your best. *hug* Keep fighting the good fight, hon!

As for the keyboard Kommando, he looks like he's got a little kitty pompadour! *LMAO*


Denita TwoDragons
 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 04:26 PM

Laurie C, I'm so sorry about your little R. You are one of my CO inspiration peeps and one of the reasons I got the foster kits (also saved by some nice people at a bad place). Hugs to you, you did your best.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 04:36 PM

Laurie C: Despite the sad news about Kitten R, you and your boxcar pals are doing great work. Think of all the happy rescues!

D2D: Pratchett fan or no, that cake is utterly amazing (I just got "Good Omens" but haven't started it yet, never read any other Pratchett). That bride is just darned lucky to have such a mom!

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 04:43 PM

Snorglit, those bebe kits are super sweet! Can't wait to see more.

D2D, that is the coolest wedding cake EVAH.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 04:52 PM

Laurie C, very sorry to hear about Kitten R. Best of luck with the other foundlings.

So I've had a flu-cold thingy for the past day and a half. It's been so great to spend some time on CO in spite of the craziness of some earlier posts. At any rate, this pic just made my headache-sore-throat-and-stuffy-nose ridden day. Thanks CO.
