Various and sundry items

Submitter Erin P. says: "This is my cat Aeon. He is groceries.* I know it looks staged, but he totally crammed himself in there."

Oh, we know a thing or two about cats cramming into places. Stheriouswee.

Aeon

* He is? OOOOOOOOO-Kaaaaaaay....

Aww. I had a cat who would do that, too!

He's saying: "All your groceries are belong to us. Now WHERE'S THE GODDAMN BACON?!"

Such a pretty boy...

All your groceries, groceries, groceries, all your groceries are belong to us! Take off every goldfish for great justice!(Thanks Cerise, I could've gone the rest of the day without getting that thing stuck in my head for the umpteenthousandth time!)

Looking at the items in those grocery bags is making me hungry.

And where can I find a grocery store that sells cats? This must be the same one that had these other wee grocery kittens.

Smart cat. Figured he'd go right to the source. He's hit the cat jackpot: plastic bags AND groceries.

Aeon, how long will you wait?

Totally believable. My cat loves plastic bags (or any type really) so much so that he will attempt to fit all of his 11 pound fluffiness into even the teensiest bags. Nothing funnier than a cat who thinks he's invisible just because he's got his head shoved in a bag.

Oh that is SO the picture at my house too!
But just picture *nine* cats underfoot and chewing on the plastic bags!

I'm buying anything that comes with a free cat.

Ha, and he honed right in on the fish. Smart kitty!

It doesn't seem staged to me. There's apparently a bit of a gap there and the result is a cat-sized pseudo-box.

I like the expression on his face - "Do you mind? I'm busy here!", and the little patch on his chin.

Tiberia

One of my boys is a confirmed plastic bag licker. LOOOOOOOORVES them. I cut the handles so he can't get stuck in one, and let him get on with his bag high.

Recycle your carrier bags and get a free cat for the week - sounds like a good offer to me!

Somebody set up us Aeon. You are on the way to DiGiorno. What you say? You have no chance to serve pies make your time.

I bet it's not the groceries themselves that sucked Aeon in. Every cat I've known has been really weird with plastic bags (ESPECIALLY Lorna the foster momcat).

Theo
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 09:55 AM

Seriously, Lemura? SERIOUSLY??

[Sorry, too much Grey's Anatomy lately. Seriously.]

Theo

I love the phrase "He is groceries."

srah
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 09:58 AM

Seriously. My cat has weird hobbies.

lemura
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 09:58 AM

lemura - at least your cat HAS hobbies. Lord knows I beg and plead with my kitties to find something constructive to do. But do they listen? Oh no! They sit around all day, getting high on 'nip, sleeping on and off. What's a mother to do?

rpennefe
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 10:01 AM

Hobbies? My cats need jobs. Especially the tabby, to use up some of her boundless energy.

Laurie C
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 10:10 AM

Gad-
I thought all cats hated plastic bags.
My cats just HATE them.
i can drive them out of the kitchen by crumpling a bag.
(Even if I've just fed them.)
I can't ever unpack groceries with the kitties around.
Hmmm, are my cats weird, or are yours???

lauowolf
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 10:10 AM

Er, aren't all cats weird?

In their own special ways, I mean?

rpennefe
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 10:19 AM

Lauo -- Spot & Bounce flee from the sound of crumpling plastic bags too. But that doesn't mean they won't try to eat them, sometimes. And Lorna actually tried to lick & chew the bags I was using to clean out the damn litterbox. Had to resort to nose-bops.

Theo
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 10:20 AM

NoseBops!!:o You assaulted a single mom with dependents? Shame on you, Teh-O... :p

This cat looks so much like my Riley, who loves to get into plastic bags, and always always ALWAYS manages to get a handle stuck around his 11 lb girth. And I'm also an Erin P. Just not the Erin P. who sent this in. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeird.

Erin
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 10:25 AM

Princess Hank licks and chews plastic bags quite intently. there must be *some* nutrient there she is not getting in her regular diet. Steven E. sticks his head in any plastic bag to check for gooshy food (gooshy food = any food), even the empty ones. but of course, Steven E. is a "Kitteh Of Very Little Brain". or Sense.

I want all of those groceries... they all look good... oh, and cute cat too... :P

That little gray spot under his chin makes him look like he's singing: "la la la, sarah lee for you, goldfish for meeee!"

goldfish: check
pizza: check
garlic bread: check
cat food: check
ziplock bags: check
cat: che...what the?

OK, this is cute.

could be myth, but my pets vet told my hubby & I that the plastic bags contain animal by-product in them and they can smell it. He said that is why my cat likes to lick the CD & DVD cases.

But I could be the only one who has a fear of allowing my boys to play with plastic bags, I just remember my hubby & I trying to get our 153lb, Great Dane to stand still and unclench his tail as we pulled out the unprocessed plastic bag, that he ate from his bum!

OHHHHH, the nightmares!

Aeon is so beautiful

solveig
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 10:55 AM

Diem, that was an image I did NOT need.... ew...

I have a kitty who also loves to lick plastic anything.... AND I have a 20 pound cat who also thinks she can hide herself in any bag simply by covering her head.... Meanwhile, I have a Kitty who's not quite all there mentally and if she sees a bag moving, she looks at like an alien...it's quite funny really...

My best friend's cat Cloud is also a baglicker. (Good lord, doesn't that read like the absolute worst non-four-letter-word insult in the dictionary?) She used to meatloaf on top of any plastic bag in the house and then serenely lick the bits nearest her front paws. Unfortunately, the *sound* was enough to make me want to commit myself.

saska

And he's conveinently parked near the goldfish! cute!

My cats have always clustered around the newly-bought groceries; my Dad even has a name for it—he says they're the *Bag Inspectors*.

("Just doin' my job, ma'am, gotta make sure these bags check out.")

I remember bringing home groceries one day when I lived in my sweet little house up in Allston. I'd been out all day and by that time really had to pee, but I was careful to put the chicken and meats away before leaving the groceries unattended for a moment. When I came out, Sir Isaac Mewton was joyously ripping open a bag of mini-marshmallows!

He still goes crazy over them and I can't for the life of me figure out why.

Thalia
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 12:11 PM

My cat Frankie (RIP) had the grocery fetish. Everytime I came home with the plastic bags, he would slither in and amongst them.

JC
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 12:23 PM

Sir Isaac Mewton!!! Genius!

I swear, you CO folks have theeeee most inspired kitty names ever. If I ever get a cat, I'm really gonna have to pull my socks up if I hope to come up with a name half as brilliant!

AuntieMame
 |  Sep 15, 2006 at 12:24 PM

Personally, I have my cats double bagged to carry home from the store!!
