Hover kitteh

Not since HoverHam or Monorail Cat have we been sufficiently bowled over by a levitating ani-pal. Please check out the "inner workings of catness" on display here:

The superb flatness of it all!

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:12 PM

Somehow this kitty is reminding me of freshly laundered and folded towels.

They're always nice and soft and warm and smell nice.

*sniffs monitor*

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:19 PM

Cool fluffage!

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:19 PM

The inner workings of the cat loaf -- revealed!

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:21 PM

i just LOLed as I have never LOLed before. however, i'm slightly disappointed in myself for having lived in the same house with a cat and a glass table for two years and never having thought of this!

The Japanese title is read shitawa kounatte irundesu. It loosely means, underneath, it looks like this. Yeah, this is a very loose translation.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:27 PM

So THAT'S what it looks like under there!!

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:28 PM

Ths reminds me of one of those toilet paper cozies.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:33 PM


Get on it!

(The cat photography, not the coffee table)



 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:34 PM

Teh link did not work, picture unavailable there now.

Somehow, now that I see the smooshing goin' on underneath, it doesn't look so comfertabuls anymore.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:42 PM

I always wondered how they sat so neat. Worthy of an ikea design award (the cat, not the table)

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:42 PM

What a great picture!

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:47 PM

About the japanese text: what anonymous said. It just means "this is what it looks like underneath"-- it's just the title of that page. the actual title of the site is ねこ様, or, basically, mr. cat.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:48 PM

*giggle* @ smushed harbls! It/they almost looks like a face... like the cat sat on a rabbit.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 05:59 PM

I had a white cat for almost 18 years, and she was pretty ..er..fluffy; just about like this one.

She spent a great deal of time in the meatloaf position.

She looked comfortable, but now that I see where her feet had to go, it doesn't look all that comfortable.

It's cool to see where things fit, though.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 06:07 PM

did any drink coasters make it out alive? o_0

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 06:08 PM

That is the coolest thing I've seen in ages!!!

Like pjk said "the superb flatness"! :-D

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 06:12 PM

I wonder if the underside of the sphinx looks like this?

That's an impressive smile btw.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 06:17 PM

The cloud formations are so distinctive this time of year, don't you think?

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 06:29 PM

Kar, best comment evar! Can never look at Sphinx again without LOL. Thank you!

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 06:44 PM

The Japanese are experts at under-cat studies:


 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 06:55 PM

leah b.
 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 06:58 PM

That's kinda creepy in a fascinating kind of way. Reminds me of some weird medical stuff I saw once...

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 07:17 PM


Cats had us thinking that they retracted or absorbed the feets.

The truth (and the floof) is revealed.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 07:28 PM

"Folks, please return your tray tables to their upright position as we will be engaging the landing gear....." Hee Hee! Can't get the image out of my poor warped mind!!

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 07:59 PM

OMG punkpie i just saw the rabbit's face. thanks. thanks a lot.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 08:24 PM

omg.... That is catastic.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 08:27 PM

The, uhn, rabbit's face... that would be kittyunmentionables. Smooshed.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 08:30 PM

I was all excited to use my Japanese smarty-pants skills to tell you how to pronounce the linked text. And then I found out that *multiple* other Japanese-speaking smarty-pantses had beaten me to it. [pouts] You gotta get up early in the morning to show off around these parts!

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 08:30 PM


and whoever used catloaf up above, i thought i was the only one that referred to that position as "catloaf"

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 08:53 PM

Awwww! It's a white fuzzy kitty-loaf!

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 08:55 PM

My kids discovered the entertainment value of looking at the underside of the cat on the glass table. For some reason, though, this really peeves the cat, and she will reach under the table to smack at us.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 09:16 PM

It sure doesn't look comfy but they sit like that all the time so it must be something to do with kitty ergonomics that we cannot fathom. I keep laughing the more I look at it.

Bunny!!! (ick, I know.)

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 09:28 PM

I heart the "enrobed in fat" hind feet...

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 09:37 PM

it's kitty origami!

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 10:39 PM

and all this time i thought my cat was putting his paws in his pockets. wow.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 10:58 PM

OMG I lof eet. The curled pawsicles. (Regrets purge of glass table years ago.) So, those folks at "Mr. Cat" seem to have a category called, um, Cats In Crotches or something. I like racks better.

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 11:22 PM

I went to the Japanese website and they mentioned on their front page THEIR picture on cuteoverload! I thought it was cool! Too bad I do not recognize any words except for "cuteoverload.com"

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 11:29 PM

Whoa! I've never seen a kitty from that vantage! Amazingly flexible, hey? Not to mention cute! Guess there's something to be said for having glass shelves!

 |  Sep 09, 2007 at 11:32 PM

OMG!!! What an awesome photo! Cats are indeed the masters of Teh Smoosh.

 |  Sep 10, 2007 at 03:08 AM

I always wondered where their front paws went when they sat like that.

 |  Sep 10, 2007 at 04:02 AM

Of course you all realise that is a very old model, it's much more sophisticated these days. I use one to do my irony.

Around here, we refer to the advanced catloaf position as kitty-plegia--"look Maw, no paws"!

 |  Sep 10, 2007 at 05:01 AM

omg this pic makes me want to go out and get a kitty and a glass table just so i can marvel in this wonderment.

 |  Sep 10, 2007 at 05:22 AM

A snowy white meatloaf!
