Peeps. Today is the last day Pedigree dog food is matching all donations to the American Humane Society. Here's how:
Go to:

Pedigree will MATCH all donations made on-line at the above websites.

The AHA is a non-profit animal and child welfare organization founded in 1877. Go to the website and learn more.

That is just mooalicious.
AWWWWWWW that is true love.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 06:25 AM

I like how the sheep audience in the background is so attentive!

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 06:28 AM

Soo... this is a textbook example of interspecies snorgling! Why not put it in the new category?

paint tastes great
 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 06:31 AM

Isn't this a great candidate for the new Interspecies Snorgling category?

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 06:32 AM

those cows are not licking that kitten. though the nuzzles are cute, cow tongues are very large and rough and would be visible in the footage and probably pushing the kittie around.

I guess what we're realizing is that now and then even kittehs feel insecure from all the pain, feel so ashamed....

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 06:37 AM

Dudes, yo. It's the same like four seconds looped over and over again. Cow's nudging, not licking. Once. I demand higher standards for the QTE!

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 06:37 AM

Seriously, Willa. Just because they put in fades and add a Christina Aguilera song doesn't make this worth watching the full 45 seconds.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 06:42 AM

Cow breath sauna.

Schnooof, moo, shnuf, moooooo.

**kitteh wiggles tail**

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 06:43 AM

shoulda used a song by Cat Power; 'specially since she said "Cat Power" in the credits...
though really, I can't recall any of her songs that were specifically "snorgly"...

and yes, the sheep audience made the cuteness factor even higher (that is my non-professional opinion of course)

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 06:43 AM

so weird it's wonderful!

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 06:48 AM

Yes, I think a true cow-lick would have lifted kitty off her feets with magic tongue-velcro action, then dropped her into the manger...oh the humanity! oh the felinity! oh the spit-matted fur!

I am very confused by the background song in this video. Are the cows saying something that is bringing the kitteh down, causing her to be insecure and ashamed while having all the cow lovin'? Mean, cruel, outrageously nasty moo's? By the looks of this interspecies snorglin', I'd think the cows would be saying happy and lovin' moos, and kitteh would be responding with happy and lovin' mews. OK. Now I'm REALLY confused. Clarification, somebody???

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 06:58 AM

Definitely snorgling, not licking and yes, it's the same four seconds over and over, but it is the same ANERABLE fours seconds so it is worth it! Sure would like to know what happened next though!

More interspecies snorgling! Loved it!

A lot of cow/cat snorgles but not one cow lick.
That wee kitty would have been soaking wet and been pushed off his perch with just one cow lick.
I say the cows are using the kitty to warm their noses.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 07:06 AM

brandy - or is the kitty using the cow bref to warm her wee self?

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 07:14 AM

The kitty just washed her paws and is using the cow bref to dry them.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 07:17 AM

Golly. [rubbing eyes]
Alright, I see two curious cows, one friendly kitten, but not a lot of leeeecks. Believe me, cow tongue is unmistakeable.
Definitely counts as "Interspecies Snorgling", though.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 07:18 AM

Cow tongues are huge. That cat would have been like knocked out if the cows had been licking it. I did just notice, however, that apparently a cow stole into my bedroom and licked the back of my hair last night...I can't imagine how it got in.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 07:19 AM

Sometimes I think it's because they don't understand the lyrics, but in this case the person who made the video is American and seems to know English...perhaps the kitteh has self-esteem issues? ;-þ

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 07:19 AM

the cows are snorgling the kitty!

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 07:24 AM


In response to pyrit's threadjack above, I want to suggest that - if you're interested in donating to the American Humane Association - you also check out their rating on Charity Navigator.


It's just a thought.

//end threadjack//

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 07:27 AM

Two things:
1.) Cats are attention whores. The cat is thinking, "Yup, you're big enough to eat me and you smell like poo, but if you wanna snorgle me, go ahead."
2.) Cows are too sweet to eat. I once saw two calves tormenting a red-tailed hawk on a fence post in a similar way. The calves were sniff-sniffing the hawk, who flew up in annoyance. As soon as he landed again, the calves came back to sniff him.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 07:30 AM

I think there is some mutual nuzzling AKA of course SNORGLING going on (not licking) but either way, it's - to state the obvious - SO CUTE. Who says cows are just insensitive louts? Not I. NOT I.
p.s. i could do without the music. i had to jump to turn down the speakers!

//threadjack addendum//


speaking of Pedigree. i think perhaps pedigree has made the saddest commercial in the history of television.


i watched that and thought, "why don't they just come over to my house and punch me in the face?"

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 07:48 AM

I want some cow snorgling!

I'm vegetarian, by the way. As I read about and see videos of the behaviors of animals, it's hard to want to eat one.

Please pass the tofu.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 07:56 AM

Regarding the thread hijack about the American Humane Association - thanks for the charity-rating link! Very helpful. I know they got a low rating - BUT their "efficiency" rating was pretty good; it was their "organizational capacity" that got bad marks. Just saying.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:03 AM

Entre le boeuf et l'âne gris.... dors,dors,petit kitty:)

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:07 AM

Aw, geez, nadia.

*thunk*-me hitting the floor after getting 'punched'. I totally agree with you. Made me cry. (I cry a lot, apparently). :}

Kitty is sweet, and happy and snorgl-y.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:07 AM

Cows snorgling a delicious little kitteh. And yes, there is no licking going on, or kitteh would have been out of the picture.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:08 AM

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:09 AM

Aw, kitty is such a sweet little fluffball!

Gah...that commercial reminds me of that 'How Could You?' piece by Jim Willis...at least I think that's his name. Makes me cry everytime.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:25 AM

Re: song choice, perhaps kitteh has a critical, overbearing mother, even a disapproving bunneh for a mom. Or maybe the other kittehs made fun of her at school. Either way, sweet (and tewtally-agreed un-eatable) cowses are helping to lift her spirits. "We think you're beautiful, kitteh!" So do I.

I am so not watching that Pedigree commerical. Having cried at many a petfood ad in the past, I can only assume this is much worse. Nah gah doot (in Dana Carvey doing Bush, Sr. voice).

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:27 AM

I like the herd of goats in the back watching the happs.

Were the credits necessary?

Have you ere stuck your hand in a calves mouth and let him/her suck on your hand? The sweetest thing ever!

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:38 AM

Um, b'scuse me. I may be a day late on this one, but I see no lickin'. Snorgling yes, snurfling yes, licking no. Still cute tho.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:45 AM

Did I need a song to tell me the kitty was beautiful? No. Cows are beautiful too -- so -- huh. Still a nice little piece though.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:47 AM

Pheas- definitely don't go here then: http://muttscomics.com/animals/shelter.asp

I never meant to impose on CO like this but I have to respond to rpennefe.

THANK YOU rpennefe. If not for you I never would have picked up the phone and called Michael Blinds, Vice President of Development (fancy word in non-profit world for fundraising) at the American Humane Society. I work for a non-profit and am able to have an informed conversation with philanthropy staff.

It was a wonderful conversation. NO NEED TO WORRY. The AHA is a very good organization.

Michael has written to Charity Navigator. He says it is fairly new. Charity Navigator's formula for rating non-profits does not work for all. For example, after Katrina, the AHA was flooded with donations. Last year, not so much. AHA has to work around huge income fluctuations. Go to older watchdog websites, like Better Business Bureau or www.independentcharities.org
and check AHA's rating with there.

Michael told me the Pedigree fundraiser has reached the $1M mark! Zikes!

I told Michael all about teh CO! I lost count how many times he said, "Thank You".

(Bows. Walks off stage singing:) "I don't wanna take advice from *fools, I just figure everything is cool, until I hear it from you, hear it from you."

*'fools' meaning 'just anyone'.


 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:49 AM

Nutty song choice is right. It's like...huh? lol

M. V.
 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:56 AM

looks like a double Kitteh huff to me, (snort) She's some powerful kitteh!

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:56 AM

Am I missing something? Meg mentions background songs (plural) as do the credits. But all I see is the same clip looped over and over and over (with no actual licking by the cows!) with the Christina Aguileira song playing in the background. Is there something wrong with the video?

Sarah Adams
 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 08:58 AM

Sarah A -- nope, that's the video all right.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 09:00 AM

By the way, I just cleaned up a few more duplicate comments... just one click on the "Post" button is all it takes, Peeps...

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 09:03 AM

those were snorgles, were they not? very sweet.

 |  Feb 13, 2007 at 09:03 AM

awww... I luf inter- species snorgling!
One of my kittehs will sometimes leeck one of my guinea piggehs.
But alas, no pics. Can't do the one-handed photo-taking whilst holding a squirmy piggeh in my lap...
