» It's CATURDAY!!! from CatHouse Chat
My cats never do this. Never! Nuh-uh. OK, so I lie... Well, where do you think I got it? Cute Overload, of course! [Read More]

» Feed Me from GetSheila
I found this onCuteOverload today. Clearly someone has a spy camera in my bedroom. (Video embedded below.) I especially like the "reach out and touch you" part. Other cats do that? I thought mine were just weird. [Read More]

Isn't that how everyone wakes up in the morning?

This is so my life... but with two kitties... less one bat. But they do the whole jumping thing and then feign innocence after I'm awake.

:D

This totally just happened to me, which is why I'm up so early on a Caturday...Good thing we don't have a bat :)

I laughed so long and so hard my cats all dropped their baseball bats!

thank you thank you!!!1!

I was draggin', but this has totally got me revved up to get going this morning.

No better way to start the day than with a great huge laugh. It's better than coffee!

It's too early in the morning to be screaming with laughter. :D

Ha! The international language of cat.

I couldn't stop laughing! Too funny and all too true.

After about a year of viewing Overload....this one has finally got me to comment....

That was too funny! Luv it! (gasping for breath)

All along I was thinking, "Not my cats. They're always asleep when I wake up." And then the cat hit him with the baseball bat, and then rushed to pretend to be asleep.

Now I need to go scour my place for baseball bats, just because I'm not sure any more.

Verrrr cute.

Doggehs do it too... much feigned innocence after sad pseudo-quiet whimpering and dancing on bed.
Cat-dogs want to play on Caturday too!

hehe. that pretty much just happened to me. only my little bundle of naughty likes to lick my eyelid too.

 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 07:36 AM

Yes, there's definitely this! And then last night one of the dogs feel off the very high bed and when she hit the floor the rest of the bed seemed to explode with the other dog and the two cats flying in all directions. That'll wake you up too. I'm tired. This is funny!

This is the best thing ever, like EVER!

POIFECT.

Claudia
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 07:49 AM

Oh yes, but my cat's voice is much more demanding than that. And he starts out yelling out in the hallway

This is the video I wanted to post on my blog but Vox doesn't allow &^%$#! WMV movies. I didn't know it was on YouTube, though...

My husband says, substitute "biting my hand till it bleeds" for the baseball bat & that's totally him!

 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 07:56 AM

My cat does that to my dad every morning, expect the baseball bat part! My whole family was howling at this one...

Elizabeth
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 07:57 AM

This isn't a cartoon, it's a freakin' DOCUMENTARY.

Theresa
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 08:07 AM

Hilarous! The details--esp. when every time the guy moves, the cat starts enthusiastically purring and knitting--"He's getting up now! I won! Oh. Not." On to next trick.

Ha! Happy Caturday to you, too, Meg. This makes me miss having cats. Stupid landlords! >:(

My childhood cat Ziggy used to knock over my dad's water glass and splash it in his face to get him up. That was pretty creative.

so thats why my dog has a bat...I always wondered..

Michele
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 08:12 AM

Miss Huggums gentley (with claws lightly extended) taps my nose. (and she thinks I sleep too late during the week as well)

Greatest. Cartoon. Ever. I think my dad just made the neighbours do a double take he was laughing so hard. So perfect suited to our cat! Bravo!

Also, a perfect mixture of cute and funny.

I haven't commented in a while because I usually view CO at work. Con you believe the miserable so and so blocked it. The noiv.

Anyway.... Bwahahahhaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

This video makes me giggle, although I have not yet been hit in the head by Yitzy...yet. In our house, it's the whining and clicking of the doggie toenails that wakes us up.

 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 08:17 AM

xD xD omgosh that's exactly what my cat does!

louisa
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 08:19 AM

hahaha, cats are assholes.

Jen
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 08:21 AM

Yes, yes, some unexplained bruises are beginning to make sense now. Made my Caturday morning!

Dharlan

ROTFLMAO. Funniest cartoon ev-AR.

leyla
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 08:22 AM

When Mistletoe really wants me up, she'll knock my glasses off the night stand. After blindly hunting for them and making sure they aren't broken, I'm awake enough to turn on the bath tap for her so she can start her day.
I wish cats had a snooze alarm, I don't need to get up at 630 on weekends.

Good stuff! So true.

Michelle
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 08:32 AM

it's so like our lives!

SO. TRUE. Thankfully, Shadow hasn't learned how to work a bat yet (and hopefully won't ever because of her lack of opposable thumbs :P), but she certainly tries everything else.

Serena
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 08:43 AM

LOL! It's been yeeeeaaaarrrssss since I had a kitty to wake me up, but I'm pretty certain this is what it looked like.

A thinker
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 08:51 AM

Great cartoon, but unfortunately its me who wakes the cats. Oh why oh why can't I sleep in.I guess it's part of getting old.Oh bleen it.

Hon Glad
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 09:03 AM

That... is awesome. And hilarious. And probably true. :)

Cara

I love the little scratching post at the foot of the bed and cat toys all over the floor. Nice touch.

Margaret
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 09:24 AM

HAHA! This is so my cat ALL NIGHT LONG. We've taken to locking her out of the bedroom at night, but now she just scratches and bangs on the door instead. And then of course when we open the door, she's nowhere to be found.

Also, LOL @ the dead mice on the ground...how weird.

Kristi
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 09:26 AM

Hold on I think my comment is open to misinterpretation. I just wake my cats up, not hit em with abaseball bat. Jings!

Hon Glad
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 09:36 AM

I LURV eet!


Kristi, I think those are play mice.

The paw on the face was what slew me. My Danny starts in on the "back and forth, purrpurrpurr, slurpy drooly sound in ear" first, than the paws on face, than "lick lick nibble nibble", get tossed to end of bed, repeat. My husband's Sabbath contents himself with a series of eerie grunts in the hallway, terminating in a heartrending "yoOOWWRRRRR". Mornings are so relaxing around here.

 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 09:56 AM

substitute "whack with baseball bat" with "climb onto the tall dresser next to the bed and fling self off to land on sleeping human stomach and/or neck" and you've got my morning right there.

carriegood
 |  Oct 20, 2007 at 09:56 AM

This is what my cat does too, but instead of the bat she just jumps on my bladder. Works every time.
