Um, thanks for sending this in

Very funny, People.

Sending in a pic with NO PETS in it WHATSOEVER.

Is this your idea of some silly, cow-printed joke?  Well har-dee-har, People. Har.


Ellagirl, I hope you're proud of yourself.

First, a reminder: not this Sunday, but next Sunday: The Conservative Cat has taken down his carnival submittal form, but Blog Carnival still has theirs, and that is my strong preference for entries. The forms makes things much easier on carnival hosts... [Read More]

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 10:38 AM

I think I see a wee pink udder toward the bottom of the pic.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 10:38 AM

there really should be a adaptive pet camouflage CAT-egory...

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into Dad's den...

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 10:43 AM

Where's Waldo? I can't find him...

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 10:44 AM

I don't see no cat.

Anyways, you guys should put up the video of Island In The Sun by Weezer. That video is just too cute.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 10:45 AM

OMG!!! What beautiful eyes! And looky at the yummy pink toesies, just begging for kissies.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 10:51 AM

They left the eyes in that skinned cow.

Looks like the cow was eating pink jellybeans when they got her, too.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 10:54 AM

OMG that rug has EYES!
I love that it is precious. Im goint to try and make it my background image, but it maybe too small

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 10:59 AM

You think you're clever, don't you? You think you can hide, but you CAN'T! *tickles kitty's invisible back toesies*

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 10:59 AM

I bet that's not even a *real* cow.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:02 AM

"You think you can "hide", Silvormoon? Verrrry funny!

It's the second installment in the camo-cat series, first of which was:

Maybe it's a faux pas, T.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:05 AM

This also reminds me of a recurring nightmare I had as a child, which at the risk of embarrassment I now share:

My black-and-white cat would be in the midst of a crowd of thousands and thousands of black-and-white cats. I had to identify her accurately, or I would lose her forever.

This was a recurring dream. The strange thing is I was talking to my sister about it recently and she used to have the same dream.

A thinker
 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:06 AM

Wow. It's a strange enough dream.....but for your sister to share it. What's up with that I wonder? Were you both afraid your cat was completely ordinary?

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:12 AM

It's the Gateway cat!!

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:12 AM

That is so cute/cool and amazing! My gosh the cat, I mean.. lack of cat.. blends in so perfectly! Like when she blinked I bet she was completely invisi-bull!
[heh, cow.. bull.. get it?]
Seriously, I love this picture!

A thinker... that IS odd, that your sister used to have the same dream..! Wow.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:14 AM

*saving link under "Gateway Cat"* :)

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:16 AM

whoo, that NON-cat certainly looks mighty innocent!

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:19 AM

Man oh man, do I luuurrrve me some tuxedo kitties!

I haven't read other comments but I'm sure others will say invisible pet web site or CO category is in high order, peeps! I agree!!

"Here I hide, upon this... um..."

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:22 AM

camouflage ftw!! :D

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:27 AM

Thinker - maybe you and sis read DWJ's The Lives of Christopher Chant as kids. Where the only way to save Tacroy is to pick his soul from hundreds of identical souls...

That or Jones borrowed it from some more common tale.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:38 AM

Now, I know those of you who are photoshop savy won't disappoint me. I need to have a diagram, or two, drawn illustrating just where the hind feet are...or is this a two-legged cat?

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:42 AM

Awesome cat ninja hiding technique! ;-)

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:43 AM

That cat looks terrified.
"If I don't breathe... they won't see me..."

hehehe, such cuteness

I love when kitties do this. 30 years ago, I had a lovely solid black cat named "Nichivo" (Russian for "nothing", because Nichivo looked like a cat-shaped hole in the fabric of the Universe.)

I lived at the time in a group living sitch (OK, it was a *hippie commune*! Are you satisfied? ;->), and several of the people were allergic to cats, so Nichivo, the most accomplished lounger-on-soft-things in the world, was technically not allowed in the house at all.

One roomie had a set of black plush low chairs that sat in the living room and conservatory. Nichivo was adept at opening any unlatched door.

So ... you'd be unable to find him, *anywhere*, but then, if you were, say, sitting on the couch and reading, you might look up to notice that one of the black plush chairs had sprouted little ear-triangles from time to time. He'd lie absolutely still and absolutely flat for hours, and often was not discovered until someone sat on him.

Yes, there were many other chairs, many of them equally soft. But he knew to sit only on the ones that looked just like him.

"Nichivo looked like a cat-shaped hole in the fabric of the Universe."

That is an *awesome* description. Very Schrödinger.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:46 AM

Look...it's ca-MOO-flage!

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:47 AM

Such a cool story, CatFreak!

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:49 AM

Oh,here is a diagram?

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:50 AM

*Animal Planet voice* The urban cat has developed highly specialized survival mechanisms. Here, we see a felis domesticus in full camoflage as it lies in wait for bare feet to attack.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:51 AM

Gee, that rug looks just like my cat's belly.. (it really does, too!)

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 11:52 AM

she has what I call Lemon Lifesaver eyes! Tewtally round...and yellow!

Jelly toes all pink for nibblin.."

Whoa, my first thought was, "What's Mewton been doing when I'm not around?" since this picture looks almost exactly like him. But then the muzzlepuff coloring is not quite the same. Still, weird.

Thinker--I had a dream like that just the other night. Sir Isaac Mewton had run off and I had to find him. I kept finding other black and white tuxedo cats who were close but not quite. (I kept looking under their chins to see if it was him--he has a white mark there, shaped just like a hoodsie-cup wooden "spoon" thingy.) It was rather distressing, and I was afraid I'd never find him. :( I wonder what it all means?

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 12:05 PM

caMOOflage... GOOD ONE!! :D

I liked the "hole in the universe" story. My son just acquired an almost totally black kitty.. she has just a couple white hairs.. kinda "down there", lol.. he named her BOO.. since its almost Halloween and she's a black cat :) He was going name her Halloween but decided that was too long ;)

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 12:07 PM

Oh how cute, Jenne! My son's roommate got a solid black kitten last week! My son named him Bones.

 |  Oct 12, 2006 at 12:08 PM

...because Nichivo looked like a cat-shaped hole in the fabric of the Universe.

To me, all black cats look like that. No insult, just perception that the space where they are is occupied only by a void in the vague shape of a cat.
Especially when they're all smooth and well-groomed and not left to get fat/go to seed. They're so *elegant*.

"you might look up to notice that one of the black plush chairs had sprouted little ear-triangles from time to time"

Oh, and bwah! Just the phrase "sprouted little ear triangles" is osaehfposae...too cute! *plodes*

And by the way, this pic is hiLARious! I, too vote for the "cat-mou-flage" cat-egory here on CO!
