aww! It's so funny to hear the Japanese people in the background going "Kawaii, kawaii!" ...cute surpasses all language barriers.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:13 AM

lol, I love the Japanese "cat voice." It makes this movie even cuter!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:15 AM

Ka-wai, peeps. I can tell that this is going to be my lousy-day-pick-me-up for about the next year.
I mean, wobbly legs, and triangle tail, and unspeakable baby paw-licking and snuggling.
And Mom, she's all, "I told you stay in the basket." (Push on head.)

I heart this video! I love that shot of the momma way up on the top of the cabinet catching some rest, but, still at a good vantage point to watch her babies. Too precious....

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:25 AM

Oh....was that the dad up on the cabinet?....even better!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:26 AM

I need to scrunch myself small enough to fit in that basket with the shorthairs!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:31 AM

OMG Soooo cute. I could just watch the cuteness over and over. Dang!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:31 AM

OMG!!! That is THE cutest video ever!! *snif* Brings happy tears to my eyes.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:33 AM

Holy freakin' krap! Cranial splodation as result of teh KYOOT!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:46 AM

would it be inappropriate to say that I tewtally covet the nice chest of drawers that tiny KaptainKitteh(tm) is attempting to climb?

Caza Neko - Mother Cat

Onee-chan - Brother/Sister

Kawaii - CUUUUUTE!!!

Awesome ... even though I couldn't understand much that was being said :)

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:49 AM

Greets to teh Peeps!

Good to know that the voiceovers in Japanese childrens' programming are just as annoying as they are here. Still super-cute!

I must say that as cute as this video is, I was kinda hoping we'd continue Steve Irwin Tribute week with Aussie animals. I enjoyed yesterday. Not that I want to dwell on his death or anything, just the animals from down unda! :):):)

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:51 AM

ladadeeda, can't watch videos at work...extreme sadness...

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:54 AM


!yay! for you! are you learning Japanese? thanks for the vocabulary fix.

Caza Neko

I learned something today...

face it peeps, we all better get cracking on the Japanese if we want to remain Cuteologists(tm). we can't hack it just repeating KAWAII!

Hi Teho! Looks like we have to suffer together...

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:55 AM

um...that's NOT children's programming. that's on prime-time TV over here. in japan, you only need to know 2 words to understand most TV shows: KAWAII! (cute) and OISHII! (delicious). but that video is definitely the former.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:55 AM


don't worry, it'll wait for you at home. something else to look forward to.

sending good vibes for your day to pass quickly...

aren't their different colored collars just so adorable?!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:03 AM

I can hear the kittehs as they nurse, they say OISHII!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:21 AM

/dot sez: aren't their different colored collars just so adorable?!/

heh! I had to do that one summer. I had six black foster kittens and I honestly could not tell one from the other when they were all running around like little hooligans. So I got different colored collars for each of them - pale pink and hot pink for the two sisters, and red, yellow and green for the other three sibs. What a summer that was...

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:26 AM

I soooo wish I understood what they were saying! I sit there watching it making up my own dialogue...and I'm not as amused as I thought I'd be.

I love the wobbly, my-legs-are-asleep walk.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:37 AM

EEE!!! The cuteness is unbearable!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:40 AM

Pink collared kitten: Yay! I escaped the basket!
Wait... how do these paws work again?

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:45 AM


I watch anime in Japanese with subtitles, so I've picked up a few words ... I am going to be taking Japanese this fall, though, so I'll hopefully know more! :)

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:46 AM

omigod--the cuteness!!!Cutest of the cute? When "Pinkie's" little stubby tail wags and her whole butt and legs go over with it!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:53 AM

aaaaiiiiii! even without sound, these are the cutest little kitten-cats EVAR!!!! such beautifly markings ... i love the pudgy bellies and the stiff legged "ok, we can do this!" walk.
*^_^* too kawaii!

will def. be watching this over, and over and over and over ....and over!

ooh, i love watchful snoozy dad too.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:55 AM

OMG, her tummy is so big she can't stand up! And teeny paws - SO prosh :):) I just love Daddy Shorthair asleep above the fray and Mama Shorthair like "honey? honey?! a little help down here??" Sigh...that made my day!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:59 AM

Jen, it's spelled "kaa-san" not "caza". It's short for Okaa (mother) and then "-san" as a title of respect.

Basically what happens is that Tou-san Neko (Papa cat) goes off somewhere, and Kaa-san Neko follows him. The little kitten shouts "Mama, wait for me! I want to go too!" and totters off after her. He can't find her and wonders what she's doing, so he runs back to his sister and complains. Then mama cat comes back and makes everything all better.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:59 AM

I love the squeals of "Kawaii! Kawaii!"

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:22 AM

Gleee! I love how daddy's hiding on top of the cabinet to catch some Z's.... And, of course, the little ambling wobbler is agonizingly adorable.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:31 AM

SilverMoon, thank you for that synopsis! Now I can go watch it again and think about the story.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:33 AM

Tanks, Mariser. Now, we just need some new non-video posts to make it through the day... ;)

A thinker
 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:48 AM

Silvermoon! Thank-you! I love it even more than I already did! They are too cute and wobbly, with the thumb-sucking look and the stickie-uppy fuzz!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:54 AM

Silver Tabbies!! Silver Tabbies!!! Yum yum yum!!!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:56 AM

woke up in a bad mood, now i'm all fuzzy inside!! Love how daddy stays "above it all"

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:57 AM


your wishes, answered. hit 'Refresh'

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:57 AM

neko neko, kawaii desu ne!

also Jen, onee-chan (or nee-chan for short), is for sister, and onii-chan (or nii-chan) is for brother.

at least, i'm pretty sure.


 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 09:19 AM

The Japanese are and will always be the kings of cute.

I bow to you, masters. To you and the baby talk voice-over.


 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 09:26 AM

Mein eyes have asploded all over my desk in an ooey gooey mess. How am I supposed to aim der puddinkwerferschnorglekanonen now???

/good thing I can touch-type though, huh? huh?

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 09:41 AM


Kaye is right - the Japanese "cat voice" totally ups the cuteness, if such a thing was possible!



 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 09:49 AM

That was definitely the best kitten video so far this year. I want kittens!! Drat that cat ratio!
btw Theo, check out stuffonmycat.com once you dig your way out ... it's marmalay-dee-hoo over there!
