I am STILL laughing.
I love you Eustace.

 |  Oct 28, 2006 at 09:31 PM

Amazing how even his head got, er, less thin. I'd love to give this juicy boy a squeeze. Bet he's a handful, in more ways than one.

 |  Oct 28, 2006 at 09:38 PM

Overflowing lappity-cat goodness!

Oh, and visit the cafe, won't you?


And it's NOT where 'everyone knows your name'. Please accept me into your lives. My neighborhood is empty.

 |  Oct 28, 2006 at 10:05 PM

OOH I lurve fat kittehs! I just want to bury my face in their tummy fatness! //Side note// I remember when I could fit into smaller things... like my PANTS... thats what two kids'll do to you!//

Cats expand to fill the sink available. With a little paw overlappage allowed.

 |  Oct 28, 2006 at 10:08 PM

OMGOSH Zap you know those sponges that expand in water??? You sooo just reminded me of that!

 |  Oct 28, 2006 at 10:17 PM

"See?? I told you I still fit!!"

I have a 18-pound Maine Coon kitty who does the same thing... I love how kitties have no sense of their own size!

 |  Oct 28, 2006 at 10:19 PM


I love the difference in expression; the kitten's all 'Can I sit here?' *bambi eyes* and the grown cat is all 'Yeah, I'm in the sink. So?'

 |  Oct 28, 2006 at 10:36 PM

*Head-boink* to Eustace; .

you were gorgeous THEN and still are, NOW ...

there's so much more of you to love ...



 |  Oct 28, 2006 at 10:37 PM

Eustace ... Thanks for giving me reason to smile today when I needed it most ...

Aubrey, your Vox is so cooool! If I were a Voxian, I would put my name forth as a friend-and-neighbor, but, alas, I am not a Voxian, for behold, I am a kitteh of very little knowledge of things that would be worthy of Voxification, and so I remain un-voxified. But I would befriend you on Vox if I could.

Meanwhile, this cat with the sinking sensation is also exceptionally cool. Not to mention cute. Not to mention, "My, how he's grown!" It's a perfect illustration of the words my aunt said to me when I was enthusiastically describing a new place I was moving into, and how much space there would be. She wisely said, "things expand to fill the space available". Apparently, cats, also, expand to fill the space available.

Aubrey - if you can cope with the excitement...I'm Your Neighbour Now...bwa ha haah aha ha ah ah ah ah ah..!

sigh... what is WRONG with my cats that they don't sit in the sink?? :p It makes me very sad. Even though they typically exhibit many of the other Rules of Cuteness.

(not that sinks are a rule... but maybe they should be!)

 |  Oct 28, 2006 at 11:23 PM

Same kitteh, different eyes?

 |  Oct 28, 2006 at 11:43 PM

Cathy gets kudos for making that enamel SHINE like new in the years between photos.

... her bathroom looks almost identical to mine, save for the clean sink...

 |  Oct 28, 2006 at 11:46 PM

LOL!!! What a fine name for a kitty - "Eustace."

And Aubrey - welcome to Vox! YAY!

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 12:13 AM

This darn sink keeps shrinking!!!

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 12:16 AM

That's a marmie and cream kitteh, right? Looks like someout turned off the tabbie.

Well, TJ - it looks like I chose the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

Useta - please. When you think you have nothing to say is just when you'll find it easiest to express yourself. Get thee to a Vox-ery.

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 12:27 AM

I'm curious as to the length of time between the pics. My little kittie is already growing SO fast!

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 01:51 AM

ohhhh how i love a little ginger kitteh.. and same ginger kitteh 20 lbs later. So cute! what's even neter is my bathroom is that same seafoam green tile.. not as cool of a sink though.. and no ginger kitteh occupants! how sad!

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 02:16 AM

marmalade kitty in the sink! i too, wonder where my skinny kittens went too... they are all big adults now! and eustace! what a mouthful of a name! no worse than my mayflower...

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 03:56 AM

Both cat and sink have become slightly cleaner over time...

Handsome puss, though.

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 04:06 AM

LOL - Heather S. mentioned those spongy things you put in water. I've just finished chronicling one of these on my blog http://iceneasy.blogspot.com.

Was this kitteh left in a glass of water for three days too? :-P

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 04:54 AM

Get her a pillow... she's trying to sleep.

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 05:34 AM

"Does this sink make me look fat?"

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 05:53 AM

If he's actually cleaning the sink his name could be "Eustace Clarence Scrubbie" but he doesn't look like he deserves it.

My cats use the sink for their personal drinking fountain:


A bowl of water changed twice daily not good enough, no. There will be an available drip or immediate protest.

this picture transformation reminds me very much of my kitteh kat pumpkin, who has definitely grown into his name.
no fitting in sinks for him anymore...

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 06:25 AM

Those little kitteh feets are pretty big, though. No surprise he grew into such a..um..hefty boy.

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 06:26 AM

Eustace is a cutie-pie, no matter what size he is!

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 06:47 AM

That is freaking adorable! I love the "then-and-now"! Maybe if the kitteh loses some weight there could be a "before-and-after" series!

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 06:52 AM

It's interesting how the space between the stripes expanded.

Jack Ruttan
 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 07:08 AM

Now I need to dig out the old pix of Bounce. And some sort of scanner.

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 07:32 AM

Can I just say Eustace is a fantastic name for a cat! I lurrrve cats in sinks.

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 07:56 AM

As for the different eyes, it's common for kitty eye colors to change as they grow from babies to youngsters. The all-grown-up Eustace has lovely copper eyes, sort of rare in most non-pedigreed kitties.

Peg of Tilling, love the Narnia reference!!

"...we're gonna need a bigger sink!"


Denita TwoDragons
 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 08:03 AM

No fair! That belongs on the cats in my sink blog! Stop stealing their shtick!


 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 08:09 AM

D2D, that should be said in a Helen Mirren voice -"We're going to need CONSIDR'BLY bigger sinks !" I'm still laughing. Awesome Eustace, solemn Eustace, Seri-Eustace - the possiblities are endless. Oh, Endless Eustace!

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 08:12 AM

Posting this - THIS - without a mention of, or link to, http://www.catsinsinks.com/


 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 08:20 AM

It appears that there's enough Eustace to spread across both the sites!

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 08:23 AM

A cat. Named Eustace. It sounds like the subject of a really bad children's book. :)

Cute cat though.

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 09:17 AM

CRAP!! Ya'll I'm trying to make a photoshop pic of "instant grow cats". I CAN NOT DO IT! I've got a pic of a cat and a pic of a clear pill capsule and I can not do it! Doggoneit!

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 09:20 AM

Looks like he grew into his paws :D


Clotypus Strikes Again!
 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 09:26 AM

The name Eustace is all I need to start me grinning over teh kit pics. Wonderbar!

And, Aubrey, I can't add you to my nayberhood...when I click on "edit" on your blog nuthin happens. *sob*!

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 09:53 AM

...that's my cat's name too. he also got fatter.

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 09:58 AM

It is mentioned S Spirit...Look at the left sidebar...And has been for as far back as I can remember...

I need to get my CD drawer unstuck so I can put in the disk for the camera software so I can download pics of the Peabrain boy after I've taken pics of when he gets in the sink to play. He keeps all his extra paws and tails in the sink so he never gets bored when the water isn't trickling.

Karen in Toronto
 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 10:31 AM

Thanks, Kim H.--I wish I remembered which book that was from.

Karen in Toronto, I'm picturing Peabrain with a full toybox of accessories: "These are my only-for-best paws, and this is my Christmas tail--you can tell it's for Christmas because it's green and strung with lights. I have tinsel whiskers to go with it."

Donna and ScorpioSpirit -- In this case, CuteOverload was lucky enough to receive these photo submissions, not CatsInSinks. There's no conflict, thankyouverymuch. Maybe quit trying to make something out of nothing.

 |  Oct 29, 2006 at 11:20 AM

Whooooooa. Was that said in a j/k manner, Donna? Hope so.

We don't want to be goin' where only catsinsinks.com is allowed to post pictures of cats in sinks. That is going to get WAY too compli-cat-ed.
