The "Milkshake" song was 'xactly what I was thinking!

Oh, and this is the irresistible "smoosh your face into my belly" pose. Awwwwwww.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 09:25 AM

I love the toesies!


 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 09:25 AM

Now that Meg's established today's (or should that be "toe-day's") theme, I can't wait to see what she brings out next.

Holy twisted middle!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 09:32 AM

The toes remind me of those little decorative things (hats?) you put on turkey legs.

Too cute.

Oooh, a big cat stretch, with that adorable, soft little belleh -- just waiting for a rub or a snorgle! Hard to resist!
(must control self in office)

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 09:56 AM

Milkshake. What a sweet name for a white cat! (S?)he's adorable.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 09:56 AM

Milkshakes is also the name of Billy's cat on Billy & Mandy's Grim Adventures ;)

or, she is skilled at attracting handsome Tuxedo cats to the front lawn.


 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 10:11 AM

I used to have a cat when I was little who would do that with his toes and after watching him do it so much, I practiced and I could (and still can) do it too! :) Not as cute though. ;)

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 10:17 AM

Man, I wish I could stretch like that...

I named a cat chowder once. Hilarity ensued.

Sister: What's for dinner?
Other sister: Chowder!

Also, Milkshake is a somewhat twisted name to give a cat if you're a Louis XIV fan...

Stretched kittie toes like this always remind me of the Grinch holding Max the dog's leg as Max dangles from the end of the sled full of stolen toys.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 10:36 AM

Those splayed toes are perfect!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 10:45 AM

apparently I have been missing out. I have never heard of the Milkshake song.
I love the toes though - cat toes always melt me.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 10:58 AM

My brother and I always called 4-pronged pawsitude "crow's feet."

I bet that stretch felt good!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 11:08 AM


Milkshake's toes are SO like Max's!!! Nice call.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 11:11 AM

milkshake is *loverly*
... and that raspberry sherbet-colored chair is gorgeous too!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 11:14 AM

I don't know the milkshake song they are talkin about either- but I gots my own which goes down like this:
I'm goin to the country
I'm going to the fair
To see a senorita
With flowers in her hair

Shake it baby
Shake it
Shake it all you can
Shake it like a milkshake
and pour it inna pan

I taught this song to all the kiddos at the daycare.
Their parents LOVED it.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 11:14 AM

hehehe! Reminds me of my dog. When she stretches, she looks like she's saying her prayers. :) :)

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 11:21 AM

When my cat does this I say "ooooh big stretchers for the baby!!!!!!!!!!" She's like "yeah, whatever mom" with a look like the tuxedo cat named Friendly -lol!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 11:22 AM

We had a baby kitter named Milkshake at my shelter a coupla months ago. She was mostly white with some black, so it must've been an Oreo milkshake.

I love how kitty's front half seems to have no idea what the back half is doing.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 11:28 AM

annie poonany - those things are actually called "panties" for some reason. like it's some kind of turkey lingerie.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 11:43 AM

Le stretch!

My kitty's middle name is Milkshake. Annabelle Milkshake. To go along with the other cat we had at the time, Christine Velcro...

Not the same kitteh, but more odd-eye white toe action:

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 12:53 PM

DanS...I couldn't think of where I had seen those toes before and you're right, that's where I've seen dems before!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 01:16 PM

this milkshake looks to comfy toes and tocks stretched all over the place was she at "freindlyS" party last night lol this milkshake just made my day and no calories even better.

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 02:51 PM

Wanting to fit in with all the "trendy" cats in L.A., Milkshake has signed up for a kitty yoga class. Steeeeeerreeettttch!

(I don't know much about yoga. Is Milkshake's 'pose' similar to any yoga pose? Peoples?)

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 03:10 PM

That's one s-t-r-e-t-c-h-y cat! (And a lovely vanilla milkshake s/he is, too.) Now we need to find, or make, toe socks in kitty sizes!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 03:49 PM

When our cats stretch out their toes like that, we call it flower-toes because they look like flower petals...very silly but it makes us laugh

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 04:05 PM

Isn't it awesome how the dark background frames those splayed-out tootsies to perfection?

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 04:36 PM

We call it Chicken Feet chez nous.
As to yoga, musicchick2, it is kind of a revolved fish pose! No kidding! :-)
In fish, you press the crown of your head to the floor and arch the upper back away from the floor, stretching feet away .. so add a rotation ...? Maybe?

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 04:44 PM

Ooooh, spread out toeses!!!!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 06:05 PM

Becca and Cutebabyfix:

This song is quite blatantly NOT child-friendly... I don't think any Louis XIV songs are.

That is what we call in my house as BLOOMIN' TOES!!!

 |  Apr 03, 2007 at 10:16 PM

Hon. Glad. Ans. "EntreCAT" surely????

 |  Apr 04, 2007 at 05:48 AM

Yes, I thought ballerina toes too! And entrechat. Too bad the "chat" part means "change", instead of "cat". (French for cat is chat as you know).
