"Winston is annoying"

People, please check out the smooshed-face-ed-ness that is Winston the kitteh.

The original movie is posted on blog FourFour, where commenters said: "his Totoroness just kills me!" Another said: "His mouth opens up like a marionette!  Like someone's pulling a little Winny string!"

Says the videographer: "Winston mostly cries like this when he's hungry, i.e. ALWAYS. But you know what the best thing about this video is? When I was putting it together, Winston was attempting to sleep next to me on the couch, but he kept waking up, hearing his own crying and the pre-meal sounds present in the clips I was editing. Ha! Now he knows how annoying he is. I mean, I'm sure he forgot immediately, but the moment of justice was worth it." Yay Winst!

Karen B., EXCELLENT pointing-outing ;)

Meet Winston, purrhaps the most annoying cat on the planet?  According to his owner, his voice is raspy because he smokes so many Newports.  I first noticed this on Cute Overload and then Ant egged me on to post it so here it is. ... [Read More]

*kisses the smooshed nose*

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:41 AM

Annoying indeed. Yet, I still wanna glomp him. :P

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:41 AM

What kinda kitty is winston?

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:43 AM


 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:44 AM

It's a good thing Winston didn't marry my late-great Wilma who meowed ALL the time, hungry or not, and she had a much louder Siamese voice. It sounded as if she was saying, "no-ooow" over and over. She also ate socks and sweaters. Oddly enough, I miss the girl, who died at 17.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:45 AM

and i love Love LOVE the kitty sneezes.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:45 AM

My cat is far noisier. I can hear it in my semi sleep, 3 floors above where it is in the kitchen. Best alarm clock in the world

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:46 AM

ZOMG!!!!!! Karen B. is me!!! *tuna dance*

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:46 AM

Am I the only one grossed out by cats sitting/sneezing on countertops where food is prepared? ...

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:47 AM

geez. anti-cat people are annoying.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:48 AM

He looks like a short haired persian, so cute!

Favorite face - freeze at :23. Priceless. The one eye open, one eye squinted is amazing.

You're right, the one at 1:32 is so pitiful. The one at 1:24 is very desperate as well..one of my favorites is 1:20, when he seems to actually say something. It seems very Shakespearean.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:49 AM

not anti-cat at all, just glad I don't eat from that kitchen!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:50 AM

The best parts definitelly are the kitty sneezes and the 'tock snorf

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:52 AM

Oh mah gawds... :D!

Meow! Meow! Ow....?

"Winston, what's the matter? What's the problem?"

If Winston knew people-speak he would be saying:

"What is wrong wif me? What is wrong wif you? You no luff me anymore? I been hungry now for 2 minutes and 50 seconds. Is that luff to leave me so hungries? Is nuffing wrong wif me, is wrong wif you I tinks. Closing eyes now.."

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:54 AM

I have two cats. One of them has an adorable little meow, and I love to "talk" to her. She'll actually respond back when I meow at her.

The other cat does not have as cute a meow. Unfortunately, she has noticed that I love to "talk" to the other cat, so she meows at me. ALL THE TIME.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:54 AM

Skinny kitty Winston is justified. He wants more food!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:55 AM

Aww! He sounds like my little Burmese kitty!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:56 AM

O-Cat!!!!!! WooHoo!!!! Congrats! You're a published sender-inner!!!! And a what a submishe!!! Already a 'nuff!!!!!
*does a poorly executed rendition of the tuna dance* :)

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:57 AM

Oh, my gosh. That is the most annoying cat ever.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 10:58 AM

I believe Winston is an Exotic Shorthair. I have one, Teddy, and he sneezes ALL THE TIME!!! I think it's due to the smooshed up face....

please feed Winston, we must take up a collection for him. He's hungry!
hes also very cute and floofy. he's a good talker.and the fake-sneezing for more attention! hilarious.
me thinks Winston is smarter than owners give credit for.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:06 AM

I'm not being anti-cat...but I'm not a cat person. I see the cuteness in something like this but at the same time you just have to admit he has such a whiny, crappy look/sound going on. it's maybe borderline cute or sad. It's like when my boyfriend's cat comes into the bathroom and screams at me in the morning. It's cute and funny but on the other hand I'm like "WHAT? Bizzatch, leave me alone!!"

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:07 AM

This is so adorable! I couldn't figure out what was annoying though. My cat does this all the time, whether or not she's hungry. She's just a talker. She does get annoying though when her meows becoming increasingly insistent when I'm making something in the kitchen like coffee and I've shown her that it's nothing she wants anyway. She insists that I must be hiding some chicken up there behind the coffee maker. Then I walk over to her food bowl and say "Look Sunny, nice fresh yummy food!" And she just looks at me like "Whatevs mom." Cats are awesome.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:08 AM

It's Winston! He's so Top-Heavily Delicious!

I love love LOVE the meow at 1:19.

It's funny how (to me at least) a cat's "voice" makes me draw conclusions about their temperament. My cat sounds angry and annoyed when he talks, therefore I assume is in a constant state of "surly mood"... But he's really quite happy & content...

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:10 AM

anon: rofl at the kitteh/kountertopz comment. It did remind me of a comment a friend of mine said once, though. She saw someone's cats get up on the counter and said "MY cats are not allowed on the countertops", and the immediate response from the cat owner was "...while you're around". Pretty much sums up cats for this dog person. ;D

P.S. Winston is so cute! OMG sum1 feed himz!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:10 AM

Well geez Liz, sometimes an animal wants some attention that's all.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:10 AM

Annoying Winston with himself is BRILLIANT!

I have seen this smoosh-face before, not just on CO. He's an internet-famous whiny cat. With that tone of voice, you expect him to be Siamese (which of course some of his ancestors were) but then you see his giant smoosh face, heh.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:11 AM

OOPS! Sorry Liz, that was meant for Claire

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:11 AM

Well like I said I'm more used to a wagging tail than a verbal whine. Don't worry, i'm not going around kicking mewing kitties....OR AM I??

Claire Z.
 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:15 AM

D'awww. How could anyone resist those sad little meows? My black cat knows how to change the pitch and length of his meows to exert maximum annoyance and get what he wants from less stoic people.

Re countertops: I tried from the time they were 8 weeks old to discourage my cats from jumping on the counters and gave up after a 1 1/2 years.

This stuff is funny (and possibly almost cute) to me in small doses. But stuff like this is why I don't have a cat of my own. I couldn't handle that all day. O_O Props to those who can, though.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:20 AM

Mwhahaha! I didn't know that other cats did that too! He totally sounds like my Baby Kitty whenever he wants in, or out, or milk, or to eat what you're eating, or to see what you're doing - in short, all the time! I love Winston's smooooooshyface!

Gabby Smith
 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:23 AM

cute things: SNEEZES!!! smooshy face all fuzzy at the very end when he closed his eyes.

funny things: winsty smelling the other kitty's 'tocks. when the camera angle shifted so winston was far away.

not-so-cute-thing: annoying crying

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:23 AM

ANNOYING??? wha? how? i luuuuuurv having a talkative kitty. our Petra has an impressively broad vocabulary, and we hang on every word!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:25 AM

"a-choo a-choo"..Oooh, bless you, Winston!

I totally love the "I am SO not talking to you anymore" ending....

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:28 AM

Exactly Anner, exactly. Well put.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:29 AM

he looks like he has downs syndrome.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:29 AM

My kittehs all talk to me and I talk back. Current cat actually YELLS and will do it whenever the whim overtakes her.. day time, meal time, middle of the night, she has something to say and she's gonna say it! LOUD! She doesn't cry for meals much but I've had cats who did and they sound just as pitiful as Winston. "I haven't been fed in .. weeks! yeah that's it, weeks! please feed me nowwww. Noooowwww. Nowwrwww??" etc.

Mary (the first)
 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:31 AM

Aaw! xD That isn't crying, that's SCREAMING! My kitty does that too, she's a real lady and knows what she wants.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:36 AM

I love this cat. HIs smooshed in face is so cute. I loved when he started to sneeze. Has a character all his own.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:38 AM

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww i LOVE Winston!!! He's just a little chatter box. He can come live with me :)

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:38 AM

Oh one more thing his nose looks like a fuzzy chocolate covered raisin that was glued on

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:39 AM

Winston is a cat with a ton of personality and quite the fanbase. Fourfour has a lot of Winston posts that I find hysterical. He's actually got a lot of hair and has to get washed regularly so there's wet Winston posts where he looks pretty angry like all wet cats do. They also shaved him this summer - not his head or tail though. That's why he looks so skinny.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:39 AM

I thought it was hilarious and very entertaining. I'm pretty sure Winston doesn't do it ALL the time...I mean I'm sure that at 4 am, he's snoozing away somewhere or prowling the perimeter, protecting his owners (read: pets) from mouse-terrorists.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:40 AM

Winston annoyed my dog...rofl

I was watching the clip as my doggie was sleeping beside me and he woke up and started doing the cocked head/ears thing (aka baroo) at my speakers!! Then he started barking at them... Oh if I only had my webcam on..

But seriously..I love talking cats my own cat only meows when he's angry so that's like once in a blue moon. I want more meow!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:40 AM

Well, Winston should me Willy, the morning meowing cat: http://brunmarde.com/weblog/media/willy-morning.mov

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 11:49 AM

My cat, Peppercorn, meows often and loudly when I'm reading, watching TV, on the computer, sleeping. All the time.

But here's the thing, I hear her meowing, but I've never SEEN her meowing. Weird.
