I'd love to know the story behind that - how did Marmie and Beadie wind up in the window frame together in the first place?

And I do believe I've got the first post on this...

Too funny! Great captions!

You outdid yourself Meg!

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:02 PM

Thees ees hilarious. I long to know how a creamsicle kitty and a ratty ended up trapped in a window together. It's fascinating.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:03 PM

meg told the story herself. and i bet it's completely different from what truly happened that one fateful day...of a cat and a rat, living in harmony...inside a window.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:03 PM

Lovely cat and lovely rat. I always appreciate interspecies bonding.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:03 PM

argh! omg, this is too damned cute! D=

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:06 PM

Aw, Meg, C.S.I.T.W.S. and McBeadersons, I am speechless, for once. Windaful.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:07 PM

STRANGE very strange household

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:09 PM

Is that a rat or a degu?

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:14 PM

Awww.... How on Earth did they get stuck in the window? But... It's too danged ute! I want to cuddles them.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:15 PM

I wish my ginger puss was so obliging with little beadersons. he only brings home half a mouse each time. eeerh!

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:23 PM

I SO want to know where this came from and what's going on, really.

They're obviously pals but why are they stuck on the window? That last shot though kills me. The way the cat cuddles around the rat.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:34 PM

That is the sweetest of the sweet!

I had seen the pics, but to read the saga of what is REALLY being said between CSIWS and Mr. McBeadersons is quite a revelation!

Thanks, Meg!

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:44 PM

Wow. That doesn't even look to be a domestic rat, either.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:45 PM

hah! I wondered if I'd see this on here at some point... it's been emailed to me several times, already. The captions are definitely a nice addition :)

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:49 PM

This came to my email under the heading "For Sale, on USELESS cat".

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 02:59 PM

I know marmie cats are gregarious by nature, but this is just redonkables.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 03:06 PM

Hehehe! They look like the best of friends! I think there might be some interspecies snorgling going on too! ^-^

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 03:12 PM

I saw Happy Feet last night, and for fans of the Cute, not much beats the baby penguin scenes of the movie. That is all.
Also, the new Harry Potter movie trailer showed up just before. w00t!

As astoundingly perfect as these captions are, I keep thinking of a scene between Purr-tia and Rat-ssanio from the Fur-chant of Venice.

Picture #3: "If you prick us, do we not bleed?"

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 03:19 PM

awwww, no one sent this to me in email!!! soooo cute! i loves me some orange kitteh!

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 03:42 PM

That rat's acting more like a window shill.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 04:01 PM

I'm thinking that's a gerbil, actually, it doesn't look like a rat. It's still very very cute, though!

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 04:11 PM

I love it! And your captions with the photos made it all the better.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 04:25 PM

The final photo looks a little like "Let me sniff your butt."

Laurie C
 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 04:27 PM

i dont get it- this is scary
why are they trapped?

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 04:43 PM

Yeah. Why are they trapped? It bothers me. I can't accept the cute without an explanation on this one.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 05:04 PM

pam- the rodent is too big to be a gerbil. it's definitley a rat!
laurie c- i saw happy feet on friday. i loved the humans trying to dance with the penguins!
and those are some hilarious pics and captions! how did they get in the window?

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 05:07 PM

SalesRat of the year is lucky that's a marmie!

Sooooooooo cuuuuuuuuuuuuute.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 05:11 PM

Love the "Let me out of here" pic! That's how my cats act when one of my rats tries to be friends.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 05:23 PM

Awwwww!!! What a good night image!

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 06:13 PM

What's funny is no one seems to be worried there are just rodents wandering into this person's house...

At least it has a happy ending.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 06:22 PM

Where's the last photo? You know, where Cat finally eats Mr. McBeadersons in a fit of hunger, after remembering what his mother always used to tell him:

"Kitty, don't play with your food!"

i pity him, really.

cheers everyone!

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 06:42 PM

Don't leave us in suspense! How much is the box?!?!?

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 07:19 PM

Aha! It's a window that slides open horizontally (see picture 5).

My theory: Cat went between the windows when open in order to better stare at shoebox and convince owner to bring said box to the proper side of the window for his own enjoyment. Mr. McBeadersons was then seen joining him and the owner, who never was entirely won over by Beaderson's salespatter, decided to ensure that nature took its course by closing him behind Cat. His attempts, as we can see, were thwarted by cat-beadersons bipartisanship.

That said...I'm going to return to using my analytical thinking skills on my thesis paper. This is, unfortunately, my favorite distraction.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 07:27 PM

Don't worry, what's the worst that could happen? Maybe Mrs. McBeadersons comes along?

Mrs. McBeadersons: "Japers, Paddy! 'Tis yourself! And who is SHE?!"
Mr. McBeadersons: "Oy, Luv! Er, meet, er, Ginger, me latest, er, customer."
Mrs. McBeadersons: "Oim no eejit, Paddy!"
C.S.I.T.W.S.: "I hope this is tempered glass."
Mrs. McBeadersons: "It's curtains for you, Paddy!"

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 07:40 PM

what the curtains?

Funny, the first time I saw this photo series, I thought there was some kind of Vulcan-rat kung-fu neck squeeze thing going on.

Plus, when I look at this, it just makes me think of the completely random places I have to lock Flanny cat in to keep her from driving me totally bugshit sometimes.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 07:58 PM

Reading what I posted, I realized that most people will not be able to make sense of it, so let me 'splain. Flanny is a cry-puss. Sometimes to make her be quiet, I have to put her someplace completely bizarre for anywhere from 10-30 minutes. Then after she is removed, she will shut up for several hours. Like when she was smaller, I once put her in the kitchen junk drawer, and once in the glass front medicine cabinet. Now that she is full grown, I have put her in the shoe cupboard and a plastic sweater box and a file drawer and variety of other places. It's like quiet kitty time-out to soothe her nerves. Works like a charm. Of course, I've never put a rat in there with her.

 |  Nov 19, 2006 at 08:07 PM

Redz... I love the concept of a kitty time out (like Bucky Katt's closet time in Get Fuzzy). All 5 of my cats enjoy a little closet quiet time when things get too strange... and with 5 cats, 2 big dogs and 2 teenage boys it gets crazy often.
