Somethin's amiss

This kitteh has some Runaway Bride eye action going on, and a brilliant display of stubtetude (see tail). The biggest question is, WHERE IS HER FOURTH PAW!? (I swears I didn't Photoshop it out)


Elizabeth C., WHERE IS IT?

I thinks she's a sweetie-naturaltripod-tux! Awwwww! Sweetie-kins don't have all her paws, but she sure has all her cute!

useta hada kitteh

Aaaaaaaaawww! Is is a tripod kitten? I don't see the 4th leg either.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:23 AM

I dunno.
But she's got me dazzled with her footwork with the other three.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:23 AM

I would lurv to rub my face on his/her belly, even though i might get kicked by the back pawsies! :D

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:23 AM

Cm'here, you. Gimme a huggeh!


And I spy the fourth paw!!!

(It's neatly folded on the milk-belleh!)

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:24 AM

that's her 4th paw stretched out. the 3rd is underneath, unseeable.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:25 AM

I think the leg you're seeing in the rear end is the right leg, and the left leg is UNDER the baby kidden. If you look closely at the toes on that hind leg, you can kind of tell that the toe on the top is a pinky toe.

awww!! I wanna bite its tummy :[

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:26 AM

I think Subhangi is right. The other leg is folded on her belleh and you just can't see it because it's the same color as her belleh fur.

Anyway, who needs legs if you're going to spend your whole life getting belleh snorgles.

Line starts behind me.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:31 AM

aw, jazz paws! too cute! very huffable!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:32 AM

Does this remind anyone else of the Kitty-Cat dance?

This pic needs flash animantion and a catchy jingle!

What a cute little sweetie!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:35 AM

Oh my heavens! I just 'sploded.

I can just imagine the photographer has a feathery toy attached to the camera and that little kitteh is "ehn"ing to reach it.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:37 AM

I agree with the tilted-rump theory. The last leg is hidden under the kitteh rump.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:38 AM

OMG that's too cute! :)

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:40 AM

Nope, gotta go with snow-white paw curled against snow-white belly. Follow the black part of the back right leg, and you'll see the outline of the bottom edge of the left leg. There's also a very slight shadow across the belly that delineates the shape of the leg.

Plus: squee.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:48 AM

I'm against tilted kittehs. I don't come on CO to look at baby aminals that are all twisty. It's disturbing and I'm not having it. Cease and desist or I'll leave forever.

I mean it!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:49 AM

Oops ... I think Ariel and Kelly O are right. The toes of the back paw DO look suspiciously right.

Oh - and FIRST!!! Meep!

Bring on the puddins!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:50 AM

Aww her leg is underneath her!!! SOOO SWEET

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:51 AM

I think the back paw is her right foot and the left one is tucked under her.

What a cutie!!!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:51 AM

I love the black spot on her muzzlepuff. Kind of reminds me of the mole on Marilyn Monroe's face.

I want to squeeeeeeze those feet!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:56 AM

She's workin' some Gimme That Toy paws in the front; never mind what's going on in the back!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:58 AM

I agree with the white paw across her belly, you can kind of see toesies in the black portion of her other leg.


Pink noses go BEEP when pressed gently!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:59 AM

My first thought was that the sticking out paw is the left paw with right one on top of belleh.. blending in. Close inspection now swings me to the other side of the fence.. left paw is stuck underneath and paw showing is right paw. Evidence: pinky toe, and the angle of tail stub also suggests the nether regions are twisted around in some weird way that only a cat could do.

Regardless, she's adorable. I hope to have a tux kitteh someday.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 10:59 AM

You don't need all your limbs to be a badass lethal NINJA KITTY!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:01 AM

I think it's the twisty-foldy kitty because that limb on the belleh, looks alot like a knee to me.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:04 AM

Paw pads! Paw pads! Jellybean toesies in two, count 'em people *two*, flavors! Nawm nawm nawm . . . .

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:05 AM


I remember when mine were that tiny... *le sigh*

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:07 AM

Three limbs, four, twisted - none of it matters, because she's ready to eff your shite up.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:12 AM

This is so cruel! I demand a second picture showing the kitten with all 4 legs!!

rofl.. *ducks from empty pudding cups*

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:16 AM


DAvid!!! Yer in for a spankin', young man.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:18 AM

We have a 4th paw people... I repeat we have a fourth paw.

So, I decided to pull the pic into Photoshop at work and zoom in to test the "belly blending" theory and there is definitely a back paw carefully concealed in the belleh floof.

Snorglers beware if the invisible paw of DOOM!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:18 AM

Clearly, she was lying on her side, when the photographer with the feathery toy moved it to our right and the oreo kitty here turned to follow it. Kitty-twister!

I ate it. I'm terribly sorry but this kitty was just too fragile for a full-body snorgle and it's leg came off in my mouth.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:21 AM

I think her back right paw might be braced under her front right paw. I think the whole black strip on the right between front paw and tail is the black fur of the back leg. My foster kitty gets into this position all the time.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:27 AM

Oh, dear! This looks like the little three-week-old fuzzer I just found ... only older and bigger.

Guys, I've had a rollercoaster week. We had to euthanize our adored Amber, my 17 1/2 year-old torbie with CRF, one week ago today ... almost to the minute. She had just become too weak to enjoy *any* of her life except the occasional chin-skritch, after fighting her disease so valiantly for 4 1/2 years. We made the decision to put her down while her mind and sweet personality were still intact, before the real pain started. She fell gently asleep on Mommy's lap, with Dad's hand on her head, listening to her favorite record, Hildegard von Bingen's "Canticles of Ecstasy." Just one soft little sigh, and she was gone.

So we've been in a daze. Just got Amber's ashes back Wednesday morning. They're waiting to go under some of Amber's favorite Hiding rosebushes.

So Wednesday night, I start hearing little kittens crying from my neighbor's backyard. I peep over the fence and see a feral Momcat, moving little kittens to a new spot, one by one. But then the crying kept up all night, and into the late morning, and I realized the Momcat had forgotten one, and it was becoming cold, hungry, and panicked. The crying became more and more frantic, and in the afternoon, I helped my neighbors dismantle their deck and remove the trapped kitten. (Yeah, I helped 'em put it back together!)

This teeny kittehlet is only two or three weeks old, female, and she looks like *this* little kitty! I'm bottle-feeding her, but can't seem to figure out how to get her to defecate. I've been rubbing "the area" with a wet washcloth, but ... no joy. Anyone here ever done this, who can give me some pointers?

Anyway ... I almost feel like Amber sent us this little fluffball. Hope she makes it. Pray for crap, everybody!

Sorry this is so damned long. Needed to vent about our weird cat sitch.

If the kitteh pwnee's floors are anything like my floors, that pwner kitteh actually has all-pink pawpads...

Yeah, I'm slovenly, but my family's coming next weekend for Thanksgiving and they'll have to be clean by then...

Good luck with your fluffball, CatFreak!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:31 AM

Ooooh, CatFreak, you are in for some sleepless nights. It's most important for the washcloth to be warm, and just slightly damp, and rub the belly, too, in a clockwise motion. ('Cause that's the way the poopy goes.) Good luck!!!!

Oh, and I'm apparently dyslexic. I still hold that the missing paw is simply camouflaged against the white belly, but I flip-flopped my lefties and righties.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:34 AM

Either the kitten is a tripod, or that is the right hind leg we can see. Either way, one of the hind legs is *not* visible. People who claim it is on the belly seem to forget the fact that cats have pads on the bottom of their feet. See those pink and brown pads on the front feet? They'd be there on a tucked-up hind foot as well. So yeah, it's not there. And a kitty heal is generally well delineated unless it is a persion floofyball cat, which this little fluffer is not.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:36 AM

AAAAAAAH! Back off, you big dumb space aliens!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:36 AM

Oh Nooooes! I can't comment on the seal post. Must...comment on...the seal post!

Catfreak - best of luck with your little kitty! My friend's got a little 3 week old orphan and it's tough. Vibes you way - hope all is well soon. :)

CatFreak, you're a hero, to your old cat and your new kitten. Taking a cat through CRF is not easy, and you did it for 4 and a half years. Condolences on your loss.
And all the best of luck with the wee one. She's inherited good people.

Don't want to be accused of thread jacking but I know cats love nip and nip is hard to get.
especailly the giant catnip, enough to keep the biggest cat happy

You see. You twist as far as you can. Then you reeeaaachh you paws out aaalllll the way. Extend your shredders ever so slightly and hold your breath so your eyes get real big and crazy like..... works like a charm EVERY time. GOODNESS ITS GOOD TO BE A KITTY!

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:45 AM

Perky. Did I mention Perky! Gotta look the part.

 |  Sep 29, 2006 at 11:47 AM

Best of kitty luck to you Catfreak. My heart goes out to you for little miss Amber.
