Lookit the big toes! I want to poke them.

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 11:52 AM


Look at the belly, just waiting to be snorgled!

Look at the crazy eyes, just promising to maul any hand that approacheth!

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 11:53 AM

I would SO forego brushing my toofs, if only this kitteh would let me snuffle her belly.

But alas and alack, I have no kittehs in my sink, and my darling husband is allergified to them.

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 12:21 PM

Awww, I just wanna play with the widdle paws... and snorgle the belly! He's all smooshed and fluffy... :)

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 12:21 PM

Hah! Ours won't even budge if we turn on the tap. We physically have to lift him out... and don't get me started on the wet pawprints all over the counter.

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 12:23 PM

I lurve the preciseness of the curled front paws - even the mitten markings are purrrfect.

Ah - kittehs...

I feel like the Bismark.

I've been sunk.

Good. God. A cat in a sink. I need to lie down.

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 12:25 PM


(Spot the Satisfactory does this EVERY night, sometimes for HOURS, while waiting for one of us to come in & turn on the lovely lovely tap-water drizzle.)

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 12:27 PM

that cat is FOLDED! look at the angle there!

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 12:28 PM

[hee hee] at the smushed head and ears.

Maybe I am evil, but it is hilarious to contemplate kitty's reaction should said faucet be turned on full-force to the belly.

MROWSH! (lightning-fast bolt of cat)

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 12:29 PM

Cute! (Of course, duh)
but my fave part?
Paws UP, Bitches!!!
Thanks for that, Meg.

A fine example of the 90/90/90 or "Three Nines" position, and the forst time we've seen it in competition at these games - as we can see, the spine is bent at 90 degrees vertically (allowing the cat to fit in the sink) and then twisted through 90 degrees enabling the back legs to lie flat but the upper body to face upwards. Worth an 9.0 from judges at any competition (which accounts for the name of the position), additional points are awarded for the Flat-Top Head and paws in "Paddles Up" position (anyone else remember this show with John Noakes?). The fact that the cat is lying the "wrong" way in the sink (based on the shape of the basin) means that this olympian can be assured of at least a bronze, depending on the performance of the much-feared team from Tibet, the Terrible Tibetan Twistie-Kitties as they have become known. Of course, we also have the East German team to come, the Schngorlgetvistybasinkittymannschaft, returning to international competition this year after their ban for using contortion-enhancing 'nip at Poughkeepsie games in '89.
Now back to John at the parallel bars.

Ready to grab yr. toothbrush right outcha hand!

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 12:54 PM

That looks REALLY uncomfortable! But I bet he's just loving it. Cuuuuuuute kitty!

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 12:55 PM

Awww... how cute. Reminds me of my kitty but I have a different problem. I have a ultra slow leak in the bath tub faucet. My cat will sit in the tub forever staring at the faucet waiting for a single drip of water to swat then lick off her paw.

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 01:02 PM

this picture makes me happysad. We adopted an oldmancat who, as it turned out, was very sick (bum heart, bum kidneys)...but we loved him and took care of him and he was a sweetheart.

He LOVED to curl up in the sink...my husband affectionately called him Herr Klag...get it?

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 01:03 PM

Fabulous, absolutely fabulous Tony James! I must say I have seen a lot of cats in sinks, but never with the "Flat-Top Head". I think this could be a 9.8.

misskitka - yep, got it. :o)

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 01:08 PM

Here come ol' flat top, he come... GROOOVIN' up slowly....

misskitka-- Herr Klag? LOL!

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 01:15 PM

Gah! It looks just like my two cats. Its soooo cute!!!
Yet my evil side would eventually try and open the faucet just to see what would happen... I am a bad, bad person.

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 01:22 PM

Theo - yes, like your Spot the Satisfactory, I have a couple that will sit and wait for the lovely lovely tap-water drizzle. And then when they've had enough, they will lay down and get their backsides soaked. Silly kitties!

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 01:28 PM

I just "housesat" for a cat who won't drink from her water dish unless it's in the bathtub under the faucet.

It's not a leaky faucet, so I'm not sure what that's all about...

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 01:33 PM

Oh man, I just opened CuteO and began laughing. Too funny!

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 01:34 PM

"I just "housesat" for a cat who won't drink from her water dish unless it's in the bathtub under the faucet.

Ha! And Herr Klag?! Double ha! Just too much.
My kitten doesn't curl up in the sink yet, but I imagine he will. He loves the bathtub and sink. However, if he's on the counter while I'm brushing my teeth, at the moment of spittage he recoils with a look of completely horrified disgust. I apologize for my grossness every time.

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 01:55 PM

The paws are like that for a reason: the kitteh is mimicking the faucet he sees floating above him by creating his own paw-set.

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 02:28 PM

I want to see an extreme close-up of the paws. Especially the back paws. They're particularly juicy.

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 02:42 PM

Lol, Aubrey!

And TJ....heeelarious! The Terrible Tibetan Twistie-kitties....that's just....scary!

I LOVE the markings on this kitty.

Skwerly, don't give up hope...they are engineering dander-free kittys as we speak!

Herr Klag had a wonderful home to finish out his life in...no need to be sad...except for missing him. *hugs*

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 02:43 PM

At least yours just sit and watch the faucet; my siamese sits and meows incessantly until I come and turn it on for her. I finally broke down and bought a kitty bubbler so they could all have fresh running water all the time. Sometimes it helps.

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 02:47 PM

cats are weird.

that's why I luvs 'em.

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 02:47 PM

"Sometimes it helps."

Lindr, that's kind of cute or sad in itself.

My Tumbleweed only wants to drink out of a glass filled with water placed in the sink. When I'm done brushing my teeth, I have to refill the glass and replace it. I'm so well trained that I find myself doing it in hotels on business trips, when there's no kitty around.

thanks Lauri...Herr Klag was a great cat...smart too...he learned how to turn on the clock radio to wake us up when he was hungry...we kept his food on our nightstand so we could just feed him on demand

I've been thinking a lot about Herr Klag (aka Tiger) lately...another oldie (but goodie) found us exactly one year ago (Labor Day 2005)...she (Poppet) is a love, and we nursed her from 3 lbs to 10 lbs (thyroid/intestinal probs)....but I worry that she won't be with us long...I have lost a few cats in the last 6 years or so...but I wouldn't trade my time with them for anything

Sorry to be a downer...

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 02:57 PM


Reading about someone's love for an animal is never a downer. Got any pictures of the kits?

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 03:22 PM


I do have some pics...unfortunately not of Herr Klag...need to delve into the newfangled ways to post...glad for Theo's advice to others and my husband's innate genius in this area

I am trying to get the *perfect* picture of Poppet...she has a certain Colbertian gravitas at times

 |  Aug 22, 2006 at 03:33 PM

I don't think my kitties do this (though I have been finding a lot of cat hair in the bathroom lately).

My previous cat used to play ball by himself in the middle of the night by taking toys into the tub, sitting over the drain, and hitting the toys so they would go up the tub's back wall and roll back to him. I eventually learned to sleep through it.
