Backlit extravaganza

Um, this kitteh looks about five times more dramatic than she should—she's like backlit to all heck... Even her tail has tripled in size! It's almost like her lil' face is floatingks in sunshine.



Yubi S., I curl up next to you on the stairs.

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:11 PM

Such a great picture. You must be a photographer. What a great little model. Just squeezably delicious.

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:12 PM

What a great pic!!!!

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:13 PM

"...And so, the prophecy was fulfilled."

I'm afraid I did not take that photograph - I only WISH I had a kitten that fluffy. A friend of mine showed it to me on a forum.

Haha! This kitteh almost looks 'lectrocuted.

Ha! 'lectroCUTEd, that is.

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:16 PM

Ah yes, the famous "kitty has reached critical mass" picture. ;)

OMG! It just hit me. I was going to say this kitty looks like an angel. But anner said it first.

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:17 PM

I dub thee Knight Poofy McPoofersons. Verily thou art the Poofiest of all floofball in the land. So it is written, so it shall be done.

Now I must go sneeze.

I'm proshing on sunshine, whoa-ah-oh;
I'm purring on sunshine,
And don't I "ehn" good!

I wonder: is that kitteh quantum leaping?

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:19 PM

This kitteh should get it's own theme song!

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:20 PM

Er, Kat-rina and the (Light) Waves?

Mr. LT and I have just had a good laugh at this floooooooooofy darlingk.

I can hear a choir in the background -- celestial "aaaaaaaaa...hhnn!"

Cute Encounters of the Purred Kind!

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:25 PM

Ahhh!! What has happened to that poor kitteh's right back leg?! I don't see any sign of it!

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:27 PM

Can you say "static electricity?" I knew you could.
What a sweet mass of floofiness! Even those tiny tocks are lit up!

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:29 PM

"This photograph is intended to more accurately represent the size of kitteh minus floof."

A thinker
 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:29 PM

Wow, I thought the static in my house was bad...

Bee--BZZAAT! nose

I dub him Psychic Kitty ... qu'est-ce que c'est? Something about that lovely white aura. Or would that make him Transfigured Kitty?

By the bye, where is the kitty's fourth leg? I hope he's doing an arabesque and it's not one of those cute-or-sad deals.

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:32 PM

Neat. Kitty Moses descending from Mount Staircase.

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:35 PM

our kitty Bounderby had a blurry outline like that when he was small. natural light always makes for great photos. plus - FUZZY!

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:36 PM

Chubby ankle alert! Chubby ankle alert!

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:38 PM

I agree - that's not back-lighting - that is ELECTRIfied!!!
This, and the dog & kitty in bed are probably 2 of my top three fave's ever.

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:39 PM

Kitty fireworks! Kitty is a firecracker kitty, all lit up for an early version of Fourth Of July!

Mew-boom! Mew -boom! Boom-ow instead of meow?

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:43 PM

....then again, the hair-gel hammy's pretty awesome, too - this is a great *cute* day ....

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:45 PM

What, no "beam me up, scotty" jokes yet?

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:45 PM

Has no one seen the back leg chub all on fluffy that makes this pick 10Xs as cute. Oh and also mentioning his whiskers are longer than he is!

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:54 PM

His right leg is there, it's just behind the left and a little further back.

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:55 PM

Aaaaaaa! My eyes! Teh Celestial Qte!

*clears throat, hums, taps mic*

"Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of Teh Qte,
It is standing on the stairway overwhelming us with floof,
it is soft and very cuddly and quite snorglable to boot,
Teh Qte is marching on ..."

Sunshine Superkitteh

"Sunshine descended on my staircase today
She could have tripped easy a-but she could levitate...
She takes her time, I know it but you can't deny
The kitteh doth shine, I know it, she does it in style
'Cause I made my mind up: I'll bow to the feline

I know them by heart now
Any post on CO now, baby, all that I can find
This kitteh's just musclin' them right out of the scene
When I say that it's cool I think that you know what I mean
She stands on the stairs at sunrise; cute doesn't pretend.
CO's the place where, baby, the cute never ends
'Cause you've made your mind up: you'll bow to the feline

Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
The kit of Sun-Ra will slowly blow our little minds
'Cause we've made my minds up: we'll bow to the feline

This kit knows every
Magic trick in the book now, baby, all that I can find

Superman or Green Lantern ain't got a-nothin' on she
She descends like a miracle and dives for some more Fancy Feast, yeah!
When you decide to put her on her velvet throne
All from the Rainbow Bridge worships her as one of their own
'Cause we've made my minds up: we'll bow to the feline..."

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:56 PM

Holy crapulence! That pic is fantastic!

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:57 PM

oh! anyone else loving the little fat-stubby-kitteh wrinklies on the back legs? total meltitude!

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 12:59 PM

Lord have mercy, Aubrey. Wow!

*bows in awed silence, then curtseys while applauding, for good measure*

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 01:00 PM

A friend sent that image to me months ago with a typed caption, so I added some typesetting to it for him to hang up at work... I never knew the source :)

I *heart* Poofy McPooferson.

I *heart* Aubrey, too. Wow!

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 01:08 PM

*Applause, applause* to Aubrey!

You let the sun shine in, girl.

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 01:15 PM

"Little Miss Sunshine"

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 01:24 PM

Aubrey, words fail me.

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 01:36 PM

Oh dear God! I've just become aware of the chub! I don't think I've ever seen chub on a kitteh.

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 01:40 PM

Aura... Out.... Of... Control! Must... Floof...

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 01:45 PM

Tee hee...reminds me of a self-important scary woman I use to work with. She had the most unbelievably bouffant teased hairdo. I saw her once standing in front of a window and saw a perfect outline of her teeny tiny skull. After that image, I never was scared of her again...:)

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 01:48 PM

This is the best feline impression of a 1980's Linda Evans publicity photo that I have ever seen.

"I am the Great Floofy McFloofersons. I have traveled from the future to foretell the coming of a new era. The world shall be ruled by Teh Qte, and Rules of Cuteness shall become law. All will be powerless to resist. A new international language shall be born, derived from the Glossary of Cute, Interspecies Snorgling shall thrive, and those who abide by the Cuteness Trifecta will be rewarded."

Miki - LOL! It's true, nobody looks like this unless they've drunk plenty of Crystal Lite. Must be the Nutrasweet.

 |  Feb 22, 2007 at 01:54 PM
