It's so sad when kittehs can't afford more than one basket

Abject poverty, People.

Kittehs SHARING a basket.

Pathetic—they're busting at the seams, and there isn't a SINGLE thing we can do about it. [sigh]

Poor things, they don't know any better...

No—just—don't look—it will only make you depressed


[shaking head] I know—I know. Tough times, we're living in. Tough. Times.


Eleanor R., we wish you the best in providing for your kittehs—I'm sure everything will work out OK.

What a fuzzy basket of goodness!

OMG! It's my orange kitty's long lost twin!

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:09 PM

Hee hee hee! Smushed cuddly kitties are teh best evar! 'Specially when they give you the ol' one-eye-open look.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:09 PM

Aww, so cuddly! Think they can fit me in there....?

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:17 PM

I love the big ol' orange paw plopped on a little gray head.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:17 PM

Looks like a perfect fit to me! ;) Warm, comfy, cozy.

heh heh. my kitties love to do this too, I bought two beds that fit one kitteh each, and they love to squish together into one.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:20 PM

SO sweet! I NEVER get tired of kitty cuddling, as you can see on my blog. And baskets are like boxes for kittehs. They'll squeeze themselves into any size, the smaller the better! hee!

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:21 PM

I don't think there can be any doubt as to where this particular handbasket is going.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:24 PM

Oh my goodness. It's Garfield and Nermal! Also, it's totally adorable.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:24 PM

omg, that is *freakin* adorable!
Biiiig orange kitteh and teeny gray kitteh!
I have two that will curl up in a cat bed together, but they are both black, so they completely blend together, and all you can see is four ears sticking out...

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:25 PM

OMG -- it's a snorgle-fest waiting to happen. I bet they smell like warm, clean kitty fur.

you know...
it's going to be even funnier when the teeny gray kitteh grows up and they still want to fit in there...

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:27 PM

And for the cost of a cup of coffee, you can help these poor basketless cats.

Just a few pennies a day, you can sponsor a basket for a kitteh in your area.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:31 PM

Should someone send an extra bukkit?

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:31 PM

But at least the orange Mama (?) is well fed, even if they have to squeeze into one basket!
Obviously, they look miserable, HAHA

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:34 PM

I hope all this cuddling in one basket won't stunt little grey kitteh's growth.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:36 PM

Well, at least it is a NICE basket. :::wink::: Looks like a Longeberger.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:41 PM

I'm not sure if referring to the enormous tiger as "kitteh" is exactly appropriate ...

A-tisket, a-tasket, two kittehs in a basket.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:50 PM

Garfield and Nermal, anyone?

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:55 PM

You cute overload commenters are soooooo funny.
I'm sure if we all chipped in we could buy them a bigger basket but I doubt they would use it. They like Snorgling.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 12:56 PM

It can't be Garfield and Nermal -- orange kitteh is too happy!

(BTW, what do I hafta do to my browser to see the new background? Although I don't mind still having flying hammies.)

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:00 PM

I want to gnaw on the kittehs.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:00 PM

Hey! who turned on the lights. We were busy taking a nap here. Hummph! Just ignore them little kitty and lets go back to Slezzzzzzz.
Okay big guy! snuggle snuggle ZZZZZZZ

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:01 PM

It is Garfield and Nermal, only after a good catnip roll.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:02 PM

Annie, It does look that way. They were purrfectly happy until someone nosy turned on the lights. Looks like the work of a sneaky mouse.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:04 PM

luvinmalssomuch, ny thoughts exactly.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:08 PM

Times can't be too tough if they're sleeping in a Longaberger basket! Those things aren't cheap!

Probably why they have to share one between the two.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:08 PM

Looks like a mama and bebeh to me. Maybe she hasn't lost her "pregnancy weight" quite yet. I would love to bury my face into their tummies.
I used to have two (grown) kittehs.. my coworker gave me one cat bed she couldn't use.. and thereby we commenced what I called "cat bed wars" at my house. Both claimed the bed and neither would willingly yield. So of course many times they'd both be in there. It was hilarious.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:08 PM

They don't get called Ginger Toms fer nothin ye know.... well at least that's what a vet told me when I took a stray that adopted me... looks jest like the big lad there too...
Comfy, cosy kitties....

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:16 PM

With your donation of just one cupcake a day we can afford to give each kitteh a more spacious basket. Won't you help?

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:18 PM

That is an ENORMOUS ORANGE kitty! I wanna hug him! And hug him! And squeeeeeeeze him! :)

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:18 PM

yep, I'm thinkin it's a big orange boy too...
my dominant orange & white tiger boy used to *love* the baby kittehs when I fostered...

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:20 PM

Teh huge basket of orange floofy goodness is de-loosh-ous!!

Mmm...snorgle tasty orange kitteh bell-eh.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:21 PM

(Hazel) We've got a ginger miss at our house so it could be a mamma, they're rare but are out there. Summer is our 2nd & she's a cuddler like this one seems to be. These pics r bright and beautiful. Love the contrast of the orange & silver/grey. Very vibrant. WOW!

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:22 PM

They are truly snorglelicious. And I agree, when gray kitteh grows up, they'll still squish themselves together in there.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:22 PM

Oh that's Garfield and Nermal all right...after Garfield raided Jon's picnic basket...the only thing missing is Odie and Pooky!

cats prefer to smoosh together they hate having to much room to move . the smaller the box, basket, whatever the more kittehs you will find.
But really they look so upset about being smooshed together........

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:33 PM

Yup, that would be the face of poverty in America, peoples--only in America are "poor" people (and poor kittehs) chubby! (Well, not really, our shameless export of chips, Coke, and candy are quickly displacing nutritious foods for poor folks all over the world--so they can look like us! and like our pets!)

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 01:34 PM

Perhaps they are looking for an "Extreme Basket Makeover"! Somebody call Ty Pennington and his crew! Actually, they look pretty comfy to me..I wish I was that comfy right now!

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 02:10 PM

Merri -- actually, skip Ty. Just get the crew. (Kitties have no love for megaphones.)

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 02:12 PM

Don't look, it will only make me depressed?

NAH! As soon as I saw the first two photos, I went "AWWWWW", then when I saw the "depressed" comment I thought "Nope, depressed is the LAST thing these photos would make me -- they're ADORABLE!" (And yes, I know the "depressed" comment was meant in jest, lol).

Then when I scrolled down and saw the third photo, I literally snorted, from the cute. Now my throat is a bit scratchy, but it is soooooo worth it! :-) Very sweet kittehs!

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 02:29 PM

I don't think it's possible for a kitty to be too squished?

This is kitty bliss. Two best colours of kitty EVER, in one basket for your snorgling pleasure. Too bad it's only virtual.

A thinker
 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 02:31 PM

Eeep! They look like my two kittehs! (as in one is orange and HUGE and one is grey and small)


 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 02:31 PM

At least they're snuggling in style - looks like a Longaberger basket...

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 02:35 PM

What's depressing is how fat that orange cat is. Stop overfeeding it!!!

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 02:35 PM

Oh shush now. That is NOT a fat cat.

 |  Apr 30, 2007 at 02:54 PM

eesa big soft Marmie, everting be awwwwrite now.
