Cid dreaming: "I will catch that mouse. I will catch that mouse. And I will snatch him by his tail."

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 09:06 AM

i love the way the light reflects on the furs! does this kitty have six toes? that would be cool.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 09:08 AM

Oh, you could just touch his wittle paw!

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 09:12 AM

Perspective Overload.
Good Morning Fabulous Kitteh!

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 09:13 AM

Cid is cute! I wuvs him. He makes me miss my kitties (however, they will be moving back in with me next week after I move to a pet friendly condo!).

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 09:14 AM

Extended sleeping cat paw.
He's just toooo chill to be bothered with it.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 09:38 AM

hee hee. you could call it "The Long Arm of the Paw."

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 09:49 AM

kitteh is definitely doing her best impression of the six fingered man!

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 09:58 AM

"Long Arm of the Paw"!! Very clever, A thinker!

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 10:03 AM

LOL A thinker!
My Miki gives me the long arm when she's laying on my chest- her paw goes along the side of my neck. Makes me feel special.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 10:12 AM

My cat just last night was laying next to me in bed, and she put her paw on my arm like "You know I love you, don't you?" and I was like "OH my GAWD...this is a moment we are sharing!!" You know, how you reach out to someone and put your hand on their arm or their hand, as if to reassure them? Exactly what my cat did. Extreme close up of paw reminds me of that! Paws on kittys are awesome!!!

Jan - that's the "You weren't thinking about moving this arm and disturbing me, were you?" move. It's the one that says "You think I'm reaching out to touch you. It's really just to reassure me that you're still here so that if I wake up then there's someone to feed me."

Tony James
 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 10:23 AM

Tony: Yeah, I guess you are right, I should have KNOWN there was an alterior motive...she's a CAT for goodness sakes! LOL

This is not a sleeping cat.
This is the new, energy efficient


in charging mode.
Eyes will open when charging is complete.

(By the way, look at the little ridge of fur on the forehead, caused by cleaning both ears.)
Someone needs to pat this cat, and smooth this down.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 10:44 AM

*Storm reaches out gently to smooth out the "ear cleaning" fluff on top of his head...then gently rubs her hand along the top of his paw and sneaks out of the room*

My black kitty "Beep" loves to grab your hand, pull it under her head, then lays down to sleep with her head resting on your hand...I'll have to see if I can get a pic of that...

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 10:56 AM

Jan and TJ, during the night my kitty would put her head on my shoulder, purr loudly and stretch her arm and paw across my chest... "You're mine, all mine." Of course I agreed.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 10:57 AM

Laouwolf - well spotted, but it's a sign that the kitty's a Klingon (or maybe a punk):)

Tony James
 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:01 AM

thanks meg. that's actually my boyfriend philogynist.blogspot.com's cat and best friend

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:05 AM

jaypo: I love being owned by my cat!

Jan Spencer
 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:10 AM

Its a zen kitty.... our little white baby actually does this stiing up completely... I swear you can almost hear them purring Ohmmmmm when they do this....

BTW... is this a polydactyl/Hemingway or am I counting the toes wrong?

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:13 AM

Donde esta Theo? Has he reached marmalade overload implosion? It's been a great week for cats here on C.O.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:16 AM

he has massive paws but only five buds no sixth and he was declawed but im guessing they left a lot of stub so it makes it seem like he has a hundred fingers

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:17 AM

That is a paw of fluff and a paw of death.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:20 AM

chacha: I was wondering the same thing. I think he still hasn't recovered from the sleeping Theo imposter.

i love the way the light reflects on the furs! does this kitty have six toes? that would be cool.

Posted by: amanda | Jun 02, 2006 at 09:08 AM

I had a kitty that had 6 toes and no tail...his hame was Nubby! I should have gotten a picture! *Curses self for just now thinking of that*

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:34 AM

I am so sick of cats....please put up more pictures of other creatures, for the love of Jebus

He's saying


 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:37 AM

Is that a *two*-extra-toes paw??

Mon Schmoop & I have returned from The Historic Anderson House with pictures and mementos, and most remarkably, without hangovers. Keeping the wine glasses full seems to be almost as important to them as their cats.

I'll write something up in the next few days. Right now I'm taking a break from mowing. Mr. Bounce has been helping, as usual, by patrolling the windows & rearranging all the curtains.

PS -- Durka Allah -- if you'd been paying attention, you'd have seen a monkey, a squirrel, a moth, a rabbit, a couple of dogs, and even a baby *elephant* besides the cats. For pete's sakes.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:46 AM

My kittehs do this when we are napping, and if I happen to move or release my "petting hand," they "gently" remind me that I am not permitted to stop with the ever-so-adorb longpaw reach. They don't even open their eyes! If I persist, they keep reaching until they get their way.

yay! teho report!

A thinker
 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:56 AM

I was going to say that Cid was probably dreaming about windmills; but I realized I was thinking of the wrong character.


It's been that kind of day.

But the name 'Mr. Bounce' does pick me right up.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:10 PM

I don't get it. What's with the closeup? It looks like a regular paw?

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:12 PM


 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:18 PM

Yes my Polly does her long arm of the paw (v.v. clevah a thinker) and one night as I was in bed she put her paw in my hand. It was so cute I wanted to melt.

Love the marmalade kitteh too!!

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:22 PM

Count dem toes, Roger. Don't forget the dewclaw around the corner. There's at least six, maybe seven.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:23 PM

i honestly think this pic is just a normal paw. And everyone is swooning. I swear, sometimes this place just makes me shake my head.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:25 PM

Yeah well... we all have our favorites.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:28 PM

roger, you should see some of us when we encounter a real live cat--you'd probably be shaking your head even more.

A thinker
 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:29 PM

Double paw, def. I had a 16-lb pitch black Earth Wizard named Bluto who had doubles front and back. He was a giant among cats.

welcome back, teho!!! We missed yr. wz ss. ;-)

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:41 PM

Or, say, a humane society full of cats & dogs & bunnies & (uhm...) rats... & one ferret. All friendly, all personable, all waiting for someone to adopt them.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:41 PM

*gazes at A Thinker in confusion*

Why would he shake his head? Just because we coo, talk in baby talk, carry them around like they WERE babies, feed them off our plate, cater to their every whim, snuggle with them, sleep with them and basically treat them as the Gods and Goddesses they are?!?! Why would anyone question that??


 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:42 PM
