You will smell this flower NOW

As my sister would say: "You liiiiiiiiiike it!!!" [followed by forcing flower up nose].


I love how the kitten is all "WTF? OK, already!"

What a sweetheart! Could that kitten look any softer!!!!!

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:17 AM

hehe. kitty doesn't look too sure about that. But she sure is a pretty one!

A thinker
 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:19 AM

I looooooove dilute calicos and dilute torties!! So soft looking!

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:20 AM

ohhhhhh cuteness!

(hibiscus don't smell all that good though, LOL)

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:23 AM

Good think it's a hibiscus and not a Venus flytrap...

What a gorgeous little kitteh! His head is smaller than the flower. :)

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:29 AM

Poor baby... that flower is bigger than its head.... You know its thinking "go ahead pink monkey... I'll just take a dump on the plant later and then YOU can sniff it". hehehe

The kitten looks like he's saying: "But.. I can't eat this? Why did you bring me to this thing?"

Kitten looks like he's thinking "woahhhhhhhhhhh........duuuuuuuuuuuuude"

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:42 AM

I've never seen such a cute kitty, nor such a glorious flower. Orchid you not.

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:43 AM

I recognize that look -- it's the "oh no, water!" look...with some kitties it doesn't take much to alarm. :)

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:46 AM

Seriously though, that is kinda a scary flower! Like something in the jungle that would eat you!

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:46 AM

paws paws paws paws paws!!

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:50 AM

Pretty kitty!

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:50 AM

Excuse me, but cats do not pollenate flowers.
Bees pollenate flowers.
I am a cat, not a bee.
So - uh - can I go now?

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:51 AM

Looks like kitty was being staged for a posed portrait...and this is probably the closest they got to getting her royal proshness next to the pitty fowwer and keeping hers there. Don't know any kitties who are hip to the whole "stay" command. Or any command, for that matter(excepts the ones they gives).

And, uh, oh...the WHISKERS, Peoples, please.

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:51 AM


 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 10:53 AM

Look at the flower, kitty! Loooook at ieeet! The kitten looks rather disturbed to me. Like, um, no!

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 11:01 AM

Awwwww! Sooooo pretty! I love dilute calicos. They are the most gorgeous kitties anywhere. I should know, I have one!

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 11:04 AM

Nah... I think they were taking a picture of the pretty flower, then thought "Hmm, how can we make this shot even prettier?... Aaah, kitteh!" [sticks kitteh in there]

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 11:08 AM

This is very similar to the pose my mother liked to institute which was "look at the flower as if you were smelling it."

I think the purpose is compare the loveliness of the flower with that of the portrait subject?

ANYWAYS, cute and terrified.

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 11:08 AM

"You're kidding me, right? No way this flower is prettier than me! I mean, you can see that, right? F'shizzle..."

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 11:11 AM

i like how the kitty is being held oh-so gently ^__^ Lookit the paw!

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 11:29 AM

Can a Brit say "f'shizzle"? ;-)

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 11:39 AM

"Now, Mr. Biscus: have you seen this kitten before? Is this the animal who has been digging up your roots? Stalking your stalk? Are you willing to say anything at this point? No?"

(the ADA, disgustedly: "Cut him loose!"

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 11:42 AM

This anerable cat looks a loot like my cat, Ballou. In fact I've never seen another gray and orange patchwork kitty - so we're very honored to be in the same category as this fuzzster.

How do I tell if Ballou is a dilute calico or a dilute tortie (Apparently I de-lurked just to show my ignorance...)

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 11:49 AM

"You expect me to clump?"

"No, Mister Whiskers, I expect you to sniff!"

Somewhere in the background, a small dog with a tophat is grinning and watching.

The Guy Over There
 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:12 PM

Honestly to me it doesn't look like the kitten is terrified, but rather looking at something else just slightly past the flower.

Birdfeeder perhaps?

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:12 PM

Arbed - we can if it's a direct quotation - in this case, it's the cat saying it, so that makes it ok.

Tony James
 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:13 PM

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...
or in this case raindrops on hibiscus and whiskers on totally p.o.-ed kittens!

ahhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that kitty is so PRETTY, it must be a girl!

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:33 PM

Yay to The Guy Over There! This kitteh is obviously Licenced to Kill with the Cute.

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:39 PM

Kitty - Okay...so i've taken a picture with every dang flower in this garden! Can I go now PWEASE?!?!?

Too cute!

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:40 PM

Awwww...that poor kitten looks so totally unsure why it's being shoved towards a large and wet-looking pink thing!

It does have the cutest li'l paws, though :D

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:40 PM

@AuntLisa: If there's any white, it's a calico. If there's no white, it's a torti.

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:42 PM

"Wait!!! You didn't just call that thing Audrey II, did you?"

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:46 PM

Or, as someone at the shelter I volunteer at writes, "torbie."

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:46 PM

Jaeby, since she's a calico, she would be a girl. AuntLisa, I think calicos are distinguished by their patchiness and the presence of orange and white in the mix of the patchiness. A classic tortie doesn't have any white or orange, if I remember right.

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:52 PM

If I grew a flower that beautiful, I'd try to shove a kitty into it, too!

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:52 PM

what a perfect kitten!

fawn lust
 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 12:54 PM

It could be a boy, but very unlikely. Calico or torti coloring on a male is a genetic aberration. The boys rarely survive birth and if they do, they're sterile.

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 01:03 PM

"Can a Brit say "f'shizzle"?" .... ummm not really... its kind of like asking a native Texan to say "might I have a spot of tea" which in southern speak is actually said ... "givme sumthat tea" ... just doesn't translate so well... but its cute.... *g*

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 01:06 PM

Givme sumthat there spotted tea!

That's as close as I could get. (from a native Texan)

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 01:13 PM

"F'shizzle, my good man - 'tis certainly a fly-looking slimmy that you are walking-out with. Verily, I remark that she is burdened with luggage in her posterior. Might I enquire as to whether she is part of your stable? Myself I was obliged to castigate my own partner a short while ago for ascending into my shizznit. Really, I am telling the truth, my melatonin-enhanced male sibling."
We can get away with it, but we try not to do it in company for fear that someone might break a piece of peaked headgear in our gluteus maximi.

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 01:17 PM

TJ, you are crazy wicked funny. I just cracked up as "ascending into my shizznit".

Laurie C
 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 01:20 PM

That's cute, until they start chewing on them, then its the spray bottle for kitteh!

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 01:23 PM

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 01:32 PM

"see this? DON'T eat it!"

 |  Jun 16, 2006 at 02:14 PM

"...break a piece of peaked headgear in our gluteus maximi."

If the cute don't getcha, the well read homies will.

TJ, you slay me.
