Don't you *HATE* it when people pronounce 'mittens' 'MITT-TENS' or even worse 'buttons' as 'BUTT-TINS'. Everyone know's it's pronounced 'button' you moroon! Stop making an arse of yerself. Geeshe.

Letterboxed for your pleasure

Veronica H., and "Friendly" the kitteh can open his cat food his own self because HE HAS OPPOSABLE THUMBS OMGPONIES

don't even think of sitting in this seat.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 06:39 AM

Oh noes, we're doomed, a cat with opposable thumbs. The only thing worse would be a dolphin with hands.

good old whatshername

With those thumbs, he could be a handyman (handycat). I can picture him with a sawzall or power drill, fer sure.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 06:40 AM

kitties with thumbs? is that rare or just a common occurance that i've never noticed?

he looks rather disapproving.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 06:44 AM

Holy Cannoli, Batman! Them's some biiiiiigg thumbs!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 06:45 AM

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 06:47 AM

(my kitteh has thumbs too. they are better to ninjah you with)

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 06:49 AM

Awwwwwww, I miss my old mittened tuxy kitteh. His name was Geordi, and his toes were so great, he had extra. I would snorgle this kitteh's toes in his honor.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 06:58 AM

kitty thumbs!
if he finds out where the treats and the wet food is--we're doomed!

he sure does look comfy though

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:01 AM

That is one mean prize-fighter of a PUSS!!

Way to defend your territory, Tom in tux!!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:05 AM

Eee! I have a "thumb cat" too! My LucyFur is the cutest little polydactyl puss ever. :)

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:08 AM

Look at them mitts! Love that little half-sleepy smile.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:15 AM

and I hate it when people say "ki'ens"... like it's cute to leave out the T's... as if kittehs *need* to be any cuter!

but I *luf* polydactyl kittehs... more jellybean toes to snorgle!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:19 AM

Look a those beautiful thumbs!! He's so evolved...

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:25 AM

i want to kiss his little pink nose!!!!! tuxedo cats are so nice!

i want to kiss his little pink nose!!!!! tuxedo cats are so nice!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:25 AM

look at his little paw-hands! his little pands!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:25 AM

I've always said the only thing that has prevented cats from taking over the world is their lack of opposable thumbs.

Oh, that and the fact that they're distracted by feather toys, bugs, shiny things, and feet under the covers.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:29 AM

My daughter and I call tuxedo cats "kitty-cows" who say "moo-ow" :) It rhymes hehehe.

This chill cat looks like he's up for a serious game of thumb war!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:36 AM

I have a friend who is the biggest fan of this website. She says but-tons and mit-tens. I thinks it's adorable. She doesn't do it on purpose, It's a speech impediment, something about aspirated or un-aspirated T's.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:36 AM

the kitteh is giving a big thumbs down!!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:41 AM

I remember watching Forrest Gump when I was a little girl and thinking that it was so, so weird that Americans pronounce 'buttock' as 'BUTT-TOCK'. (Odd example, I know, but relevant!)

Thankfully now I'm older I know that not all Americans pronounce it like that, apart from odd ones who live in certain states. Am I right? ^_^

dont mess with this kitteh or he will cover your entire face with his gargantuan mitts

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:43 AM

how else are you supposed to pronounce 'mittens'?... am i missing something? or are you saying that they separate it into two words?

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:50 AM

OMG he's gorgeous. And those paws .... amazing. I WANT HIM!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 07:53 AM

You fools! Don't you know that opposable thumbs are the last step in cat's march to world domination?

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 08:00 AM

yeah i think they're saying its annoying to say mittens like "mit Tens". thats how i took it anyways.
up here we pronounce it like "mittins"

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 08:00 AM


Ok, where's Tweety Bird....

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 08:02 AM

This soft-fisti-kated katt is dressed to perform--on the thumb piano !

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 08:14 AM

Srah, kitties with thumbs (extra toes) are not terribly rare, but I have heard they are prevalent in New England, where we live. My kitteh has seven toes and his paws look like catcher's mitts!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 08:14 AM

Are pussycats evolving or something? I can't count the number of cat thumbs I've seen recently, on here and on SOMC.... What's going on? Next they'll be taking over the world!

Oooh goody! Sun spots and sleeping all day for all! Yey!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 08:16 AM

Luckily, Theresa, I will be there to save us from cat world domination, by going, "Looky, looky. It's a sproingy ponytail holder!" Disaster averted.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 08:20 AM

in Maine it's MITT-EHNS and BUTT-EHNS.

and this cat would be all "ay-yuh!"

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 08:23 AM

I'm filing this in the "cute but strangely disturbing" category. He looks like he's giving the "thumbs down" signal at a gladiator fight! What a shame Friendly and Caligula missed each other by two thousand years...

I'll back you up with a feather on a string.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 08:34 AM

Oh great googly moogly look at them there thumbs.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 08:38 AM

...and I'll bring the scrunched up ball of paper.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 08:55 AM

In some parts of the NorthEast, where we have something called a "glottal stop", we say "mih-ehns." Yeah, we're weird.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 08:57 AM

Happyfeet! I've got those hap-hap-happy feet!
Give them a low down beat
and they begin dancing!
