Well done, VikkiRules! He's absolutely adorable! But man, was he mad in the first pic! :)

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 11:51 AM

Hope Chavo has a permanent home now! I think in the 1st pic he looks like he's trying to be tough.. "you just wait, I'll get ya for this!" and in the 2nd pic he says "I feel much better, now what's to eat?"

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 11:53 AM

What a sweetie puss! I hope you have the ability to keep him...I doubt he'll mind the indignity of a bath once he's settled in.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 11:55 AM

Chavo has no teeth!


 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 11:57 AM

Awwww! Cutest thing I've ever seen!!!

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 11:57 AM

I actually laughed out loud on this one!!!! TOO CUTE!!! He's all "ehn!"

Or maybe Jessica Alba?

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:13 PM

That's a tongue, y'know, Maymee.

This is awesome. I gave Artemis a bath shortly after she first arrived at the Catcave; she smelled like she'd been through a flea-dip carwash.

No cat likes the BATH part of the bath... but with lukewarm water, turned on really low from the handsprayer, and a good quantity of gentle shampoo, it wasn't too bad. No slashing or gurgling (or even backup personnel).

The warm fluffy towel-dry/massage stage, though, was purrrr city. And then the brushing? Ohhh man, that was the stuff, all right.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:32 PM

Poor baby, I'm sure he's happy now. Someone cared for him enough to bathe him.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:33 PM

oh that poor damp baby, I hope somebody snuggled him till he warmed up again.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 12:52 PM

Of course it's a tongue, silly Teho...that's whats making me giggle.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 01:02 PM

AWWW itty bitty kitteh tounge!!!

Heather S.
 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 01:05 PM

There, now, sweet kitty, doesn't that feel better? Being bathed may be horrid, but being *clean* is great!

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 01:07 PM

That may well be the cutest animal nose I've ever seen...it looks like somethig out of a cartoon!

Aww. My sister just took in a stray kitty. She's looking after it until it's not all skin-and-bones anymore, and then she'll pass it along to a good home. Would anyone in the Virginia area like a male brown tabby named Button? I understand he's already an excellent lapcat.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 02:06 PM

Teeny ears!

Lil' soaking wet white boots!

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 02:30 PM

Of course most cats hate baths, but if they've got stuff on their fur you don't want them licking off, it's just the thing to do. He's a lovely kitten.
The only cat I've ever seen GRATEFUL for being dunked in water was our old cat Robin, who one sunny summer day got up on the corrugated-iron roof of the house and then forgot how she got up there. We heard her mewing faintly and piteously and discovered her pancaked on the roof with heatstroke. My mother phoned the vet who said 'take her inside, dip her in a bucket of water, and if she doesn't perk up in a few minutes bring her in.' Robin went into the bucket with absolutely no resistance, soaked up the water like a SPONGE, and five minutes later was pretending like it didn't happen. Since she was okay, it was pretty amusing. We all teased her about forgetting how to climb down from the roof.

Must...hear...tiny meow...

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 03:36 PM

Little pink kitty toes!

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 03:47 PM

Poor little baby! He's so small and toofless and his eyes are still kind of blue. What a cutie.

p.s. Love the suspended water droplet in the first pic.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 04:06 PM

Liddle wet dangly feets look almost human.

My first litter of foster kittens were bottle babies (kept them all! Manny, Pedro & The Golden Egg) The Golden Egg was constantly peeing all over himself and would have to be washed, and then he would get a blow-dry as it was winter! He loved the warm air and looked like a little dandelion when he was done.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 04:16 PM

Theo - did you also use Dep Sport and teeth whitener on Artemis? I understand they are necessary items for cat baths.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 04:46 PM

hes lush and i wants him!!

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 04:47 PM

Aww, jeez, OceanicA! Why'd ya have to go there?


This guy is so cute. Poor little bebe. But a lucky little bebe too.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 04:50 PM

The second pic reminds me of those huge, red, wax lips I used to buy/wear/chew/spit out for Halloween when I was a kid. lol Wonder if they still make them. I loooved that flavor! They're prolly about the size of that little kitteh's whole head.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 04:54 PM

Jorden, lol @ The Golden Egg! Awesome name for a cat!

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 04:55 PM

P. Erasmus, thanks for the video link. VERY cute! I'm sure glad WE don't have to work that hard to get groceries for winter!

Baby kitty baffs...ah the memories!! 'Dey no likes dem at all, but they're so nice and floofy after. I always felt like they grudgingly forgive you. This guy is TEWTALLY anerable! Purrrrfect!

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 05:06 PM

Hey, it's the same Golden Egg that needed catnip rehab! (then again, how many cats would have that name?)

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 05:46 PM

OMG Thank you P. Erasmus! (or rather musicchick2 since your kudos made me go back and follow the threadjack)
First of all, I want to be a pika because I lof les fleurs.
First of everything...ATTENBOROUGH!!!!

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 05:52 PM

Ok. I just got permission from the dogs. Chavo may come and live with us. We're used to no teeth and hating baths here.

And cute paws.

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 09:18 PM

Whenever something this small, stray, wet and cute is named a hispanic name, it seems to multiply its cuteness by at least 12 times. Why is this?? Discuss amongst yourselves.

The Pika video is exceptionally sweet!! I actually saw one live once when my family was camping on Mt. Rainier. I had to ask a ranger what it was. The little kitty is adorable too. "Why are Hispanic names cuter?" Because they are so macho and most of the animals thusly named aren't?

So, they actually still have DEP? (michellebelle- been meaning to say>>teehee!)

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 10:50 PM

He looks like a gremlin! I thought you weren't supposed to get them wet . . .

 |  Sep 30, 2006 at 11:08 PM

Pika's are def very very cute. I love the noise they make. Unfortunately they need a cold climate so they probably don't make good pets. Unless you like airconditioning. :)

Great Rule #15! And that tongue! *squuueeeee*

 |  Oct 01, 2006 at 02:11 AM

More Attack of the Tuxkitties!

What a sweetie.

Update on my toothless tuxxy foundling, Xena: *SHE POOPED*! YAY!!! (It'd been 3 days, and I was starting to worry.) Moreover, now that The Area has settled down, post-poop, it looks like she *is* a female. That means the name "Ishmael", for a male foundling kitten with a loud voice, is up for grabs.

 |  Oct 01, 2006 at 02:47 AM

Is that a tongue in the second picture, or 'shopped in lips?

 |  Oct 01, 2006 at 03:41 AM

CatFreak, yay for the poopage! How old is she again?

Laurie C
 |  Oct 01, 2006 at 05:58 AM

CatFreak, that's wonderful. It's -sorry - the Way To Go!(I've been holding onto that phrase since you first posted the problem, afraid of a sad outcome.) This little picture, with the small tongue trying valiantly to dry what it can reach- the nose- is utterly precious.

 |  Oct 01, 2006 at 07:06 AM

CatFreak -- how about "Sandra," as in Bernhardt?
