How do you say 'Cats 'n' Racks' in Hebrew?

You know what? It's time for some Cats and Racks, People, Israeli style. I think this guy wins smallest cat in rack award.

mariser--Trust me, stuffing the kitteh in the mouth is not a great idea (see last few comments on The Very Definition of Flop post).

Is this really the smallest? Not this guy? http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/2005/12/nice_rack.html

very observant ShelleyT.,

the one you posted is indeed the teenie-tiny-petitiest-champion-of-world
early in the comments his foster mom says that the picture was taken the day after the kitteh's birth!

and yes, actually stuffing a kitteh in da mouf is not a *great* idea. I di'dn't say I was going to do it...just that I want to. ;)

thanks for the concern all the same.

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 12:39 PM

Oh, there are so many ways I could go wrong with this one. Let's just say that's a cute picture and one very lucky kitten and leave it at that.

Since the last cats in racks I have gotten over my cat-in-rack envy, even though my cats are still far to large for my rack.

My cats are also incredibly pointy, and I have decided that attempting to set them up in said rack would probably result in bleeding to death.

Now, on the picture, that little marmalade kitten has the CUTEST ears! They're all curled forward and I bet they're the softest thing in the woooooooorld!

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 02:05 PM

TJ - I'll admit it: I laughed. I already know I'm going to whatever version of hell my life leads me to anyway ;-)

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 02:08 PM

Hrmph. If I stuffed a kitten in my rack, they'd have to send a search-party to find the poor thing after the pic was taken. I'd RATHER have a small rack, thankyouverymuchly. At least I could pad it up with a Wonder-Bra. As it is, I have to settle for the Wonder-If-It-Will-Handle-The-Weight-Bra!

The kitty is a cutie, BTW!

Awwwwwwwwwwwww.....cutest kitten in rack!

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 02:55 PM

Awwwwwww, that is an anerable kit! Nuthin' wrong with that! :)

And the teeny tiny baby that Shelley T. linked.....double awwwwwwwwww!!! I loves dem!

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 04:10 PM

What an adorable tiny kitten! I wanna feel tiny kitten tootsies in my boobage! I am jealous!

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 05:25 PM

On the LiveJournal feed, someone found this in her photobucket acct:

totally mouth stuffage :D Though it looks as though the kitten was doing the stuffing :)

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 05:51 PM

I think it's

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 06:09 PM

"cats 'n racks" in hebrew is "hatooleem v' shadayeem"

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 06:23 PM

I actually like this kitty 'n' rack picture the best!

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 06:39 PM

D2D- Re: "Wonder-If" Bra...

ROTFLMAO! I'm with you, sister. I wouldn't do that to a poor helpless cat, meself. :-D

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 06:52 PM

I'm not sure how to say it in Hebrew but it translates from gibberish into English as "the joke/category was cheesy to begin with *yaaawn*".

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 06:53 PM


That seems to be one content and comfy marmalade kitteh!


 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 07:04 PM

Lol, Cisne, that's a great pic!
Cats are happy anywhere it is warm.

My big ol' guy, Eli, is out hunting all summer. The second it drops below 60 degrees, he is in lolling on top of anything warm. People, dogs, car engines, a heating pad that has been turned off for hours.

I was curled up reading a book and PLOP, a huge ol' cat lands on top of my book, under my chin. No accounting for personal space with cats.

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 07:05 PM

The world is a cat's personal space. It's your problem if you're in it. :)

And the problem with Wonder Bras is that they make some of us look like optimistic 11-year-olds...

My new motto:

"anything more than a mouthful is a waste anyhows"

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 07:40 PM

Got to agree with Auntie on the feline personal space thing :) - in the same way that nature abhors a vacuum, it goes against nature to have a space without a cat in it. In just the same way that all bags and boxes must contain a cat in the shortest possible time, all space must be occupied by a cat in order to maintain universal harmony.
The ancient Egyptians understood this concept very well. They knew that the soul of the pharoe would never progress to the afterlife unless there was a cat asleep on top of the sarcophagus. The Great Pyramid of Kheops actually has a cat-flap in the northen face.
Long before the Bald Pinks came, the cats were tasked with preserving balance in the universe, which was threatened by greeblingzz. Thus it is that in all times and in all places, all spaces must contain a cat, otherwise the world as we know it would cease to exist.
If the space you're in is at present catless, it is because it has either just been or is about to be occupied by a cat.
So next time the 23lb shedding walking trashcan that you call Big Herb nuzzles up under your chin, breathing his catfood-flavoured breath in your face and slobbering on your cashmere sweater, you should scratch him behind the ears and thank him for preserving the universe for us :)

ElfOwl: Yeah, they just don't seem to engineer those darn things very well, do they? I can't even get the kind with those plastic strap-adjuster-dealies anymore, for fear one will suffer a catastrophic structural failure, causing the strap to lash out violently in a public place, tearing through my shirt and raising a goose-egg on the back of some poor unsuspecting victim's head while I'm standing in line...

AuntieM: I'd rather look like an optimistic 11-year-old than a sagging 33-year-old, hon! ;-)

Tom: Feel free to peruse the myriad other categories if you don't like this one, then. It's called "free will", enjoy it.

Teej, you should write a book. Seriously--you have this uncanny knack for making people shoot drinks out of their nostrils. Please do the world a favor and only use these powers for good, OK? ;-)


Denita TwoDragons
 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 08:26 PM

Denita - ok, since you asked nicely, I'll make you a deal: I'll write a book so long as you post a pik on Teh Overload of Pepsi shooting out of your nose :)

Sung at every Cat Mitzvah:

"Hava Na-Kitteh"

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 08:44 PM

Those other two links above (hashi and Cisne) are precious as well. Same girl, same kitten, different adorability.

D2D, just TRY and ask for a Wonderbra sized in a D (or higher)-cup. TRY IT and the salesgirl will stare at you slack jawed and go into convulsions. If you are lucky she will then begin to berate you in public for not "being thankful for what nature gave you already" and she will prance about, lecturing the universe on how she herself was shorted in the "shelf" department and how she hates anyone who was gifted with "shelf" and she will draw a crowd of sniggering onlookers. Not that this ever happened to me... *cough*

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 08:56 PM

Ah, Sarcasta, the small-racked use underwire bras to make more of what they have; they don't understand that we larger-racked types NEED the architectural infrastructure of underwire. The collapse of a lesser undergarment could endanger the lives of all kittens within 50 feet.

On the subject of cats...(clears throat) another Boxcar Cat has been trapped! w00t!
(does successful cat-trapping dance)
Tonight, we got Momcat H, who was pregnant with her second litter of the summer. Here's the lovely lady, a few weeks ago:
She has a litter already at the boxcars who just started to eat solid food, hopefully now they'll be easier to catch and rescue without her around.

Trap-tastic, LC. Care to outline the steps to the cat-trapping dance? It should, in my weak-minded opinion, take the form of a type of COnga Line: http://www.streetswing.com/histmain/z3conga.htm

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 09:18 PM

I'm not much of a dancer, Aubrey, so it's usually a lot of jumping up and downing and w00t-ing. Done alone in the privacy of my apartment, away from outside eyes. However, you're right, in the company of Peeps, a conga line seems quite appropriate.

"downing" = "down"
Sheesh, it's late here.

Way to go, Lauri C! I just saw a note that our vets with the mobile unit spayed and neutered 100 animals this weekend, 52 of them ferals. Yay, for everyone out there helping with controlling the pet population.

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 09:41 PM

and he then continued to sprinkle her tits in the most pwecious shower this world has ever seen. God bless him.

 |  Sep 10, 2006 at 11:18 PM

Laurie C, I was just looking at all the photos of the Boxcar cats and kittens...your an absolute saint for what your doing for those poor lost kitties!!
