OMG! If any kitty needed a diet coke...

...although you might want to make that "caffeine free"

So cute!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:23 AM

Cats are bat$#!t crazy, AND impossibly flexible. Photo proof.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:27 AM

Too funny.
But watch out, kitty is set to attack anything that gets too close.
(They'll never see him coming from inside the coke carton.)
BTW - Gabe, I think you need the next bigger size of box.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:29 AM

Wow! I almost didn't catch that cat's face it blends into the silver on the box. That's one big cat to be sticking into a soda box, and making it look like it'll burst.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:33 AM

Stump tail!!!! I love stumpy cats.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:36 AM

MANX CAT! yay! and she totally has that "What?" look on her face.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:38 AM

Okay, now I'm picturing what it would look like if Gabe totally conquered the box--tiny little head with big green eyes, the long silver box, and the stumpy tail hanging out the back...I think he could do it. He looks determined.

Ok... who's going to clean the coffee off my keyboard? I should know better than to drink while checking in to CO.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:41 AM

The New Diet Coke. Now in Kitty flavour!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:43 AM


Cocakitty Cola, it's the real thing!!!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:44 AM

He looks a bit like "OK, now how do I get _out_?"

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:46 AM

This just happened to my cat last week. NIKE got her head stuck in a Pepsi pack and didn't know what the heck happened to her!! I had to LOL when I saw this! You guys always make my day!!

Ha ha! He's got that "just got goosed" look!
I like his stubby tail, too.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:48 AM

REDONK!! Half a kitty, half a tail, halfta pee now...:-p

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:49 AM

"Cats inside stuff" could be its own cat-egory.

I have a pic of my fluffy gray kitteh in an empty Busch beer box, head sticking out the handle, her wittle paws holding closed the large hole she made to get into it, eyes pleading me to pick up the box and carry her around in it. So I did.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:52 AM

Ah... the quintessential 'what the hell are you doing here' look. This look appears quite often in my own household, and is inevitably followed by a swift retreat and assumption of tremendous casualness and/or coolness. It's obvious to anyone that *I'm* the goofy one for laughing until I make vague snorking sounds...

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:53 AM

How he managed to fit his chub-chub self in that lil box is what I want to know.

My cat actually has a thing for plastic bags. Loves to sit and chew holes in them.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:55 AM

See, now, when I look at this, I read the cat's expression as: "You keep lookin' at me, an' I'm agonna keeel you. You already seen what I done to yer little frend, Mr. Diet Coke."

That's when I creep away from the box very slowly.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 08:57 AM

It's almost as if there are two cats there... one rather large one (the back end) and one little one (the front end)!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 09:01 AM

Laura, it's the latest model of Compact-a-cat.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 09:06 AM

Oh sweet mother of absinthe, I needed this laugh! Man, what a frazzled 24 hours...most of it spent cleaning up after my hooligan, Elric; who likely decided to eat a bug that--to put it REALLY gently--didn't agree with him. If I never see diarrhea again, it would still be too soon.

Thank goodness the vet says he's just fine... The worst problem we had was that the dumb galoot is scared of his own farts, so he kept trying to hold everything in.

Anyhoo, the above picture is a valuable lesson in trying to stuff a ten-pound cat into a five pound...er, soda box? Erm, yeah.

Must. fit. self. in. box... what's the sound for a kitty squishing itself into a box that's three sizes too small? It's sort of a ehn-oof-urgh-(rip)-squodge-oof-aahh! But that's too long to write more than once...

useta hada kitteh
 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 09:12 AM

I want to know where his left front paw is. We can see the right paw but surely there is not enough room in that box for the other paw.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 09:13 AM

You know, the manual that came with my new kitten (and I'd just like to point out that I did NOT get a complimentary manual with my boy) says kitties don't have collarbones, so they can fit into anything their head will go through.

However, Gabe's girth and said new kitten's "I like canned food, oh yes I do" belly both seem to be obstructive forces to rival collarbones.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 09:15 AM

SEE! See, I *told* you cats are honour-bound to fit into any cardboard boxes in their immediate vicinity, no matter how small!

This simply verifies the First and Second Laws of Cat Physics.

Also, LOL!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 09:23 AM

Also, check out the compression on the front half of that cat. More verification of the Laws...

HA! My Elvis kitty is long past his "I want to jump into boxes/suitcases/gym bags so you can't see me" prime. I'll have to get my "I'm hidink" fix here. Thanks!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 09:28 AM

LMAO that is freaking hilarious, and the caption TOTALLY got me, I didn't see the ~FACE!~ until I read it!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 09:38 AM

Why the eff do I have to keep typing in a code before my post goes through all of a sudden? Barooooo?

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 09:39 AM


 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 09:40 AM

Cardboard-nated Cat. (that kitty face-ette is complete surreal: I thought it was part of the artwork on the box. I don't bother asking myself questions like "Why would there be a cat's face on a 12-pack of Diet Coke?")


 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 09:45 AM

I can just picture this cat having to scoot along the floor, trying to shove himself in. The box scooting, the cat shoving...good stuff.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 09:54 AM

OMG, 2Dragons, afraid of his own farts!!! i almost spewed diet pepsi all over my own keyboard.. the people at work are wondering why i'm snorting out of the blue... i went way past giggle, past laugh, past huff, and well into snort with that one....

what a smooshible smoochalbe, snorglathon possibility if he gets stuck in teh box!!

~snort~ (oo)

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 10:00 AM

D2D--that is high-sterical, OMG! And you used the word "galoot"--ahhh, fond memories of my Cajun dad calling me a "skinny galoot" when I was kid!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 10:04 AM

The kitty does look like a magician's trick gone badly awry.

Luckily, I think we're looking down on the side of the box, which is about half the height of the other edge.

(That still doesn't explain, however, the excessive separation between the cat's head and its body... Yikes!)

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 10:08 AM

Once again, is something wrong with my cats that they don't try to stuff themselves into too-small spaces? Only the big comfy boxes for them. And my girl doesn't like tuna.

D2D--I'm scared to ask if it's the feeling, the sound, or the smell that he's scared of, but curiosity evidently has killed many cats so it may as well get me, too. And thanks for making me snort out a laugh that, because of the headphones, I didn't realize was so loud until my coworker appeared around the corner of my cubicle to ask if I was choking.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 10:15 AM

Where's teh kitteh's tail???

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 10:16 AM

Auntiemame, that there's one o' them fancy-pants fridge packs, so it's square.
And it is amazing how much floof can be squished into it!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 10:21 AM

Kitteh: "...Does this box make my butt look big?"

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 10:44 AM

"Don't just stand there laughing at me! Put down the #@!!$%! camera and get et me outta this g-d thing!!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 10:46 AM

I think kitteh is just laying on her tail. You can see gray floof at the white belly line.

This one looks just like my Trixie. And she has a big floofy tail.

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 10:46 AM

This should go to SOMC! :)

LOL Wolf!!!!!!!!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:06 AM

Let's get small!

 |  Sep 28, 2006 at 11:07 AM

I love how she's got her little paw poked out of the hole as if to say "Hello...Goodbye"
