This just proves that engineers have waaay more time on their hands than, say, a liberal arts major. :)

I instantly sent that to my engineer friend. Definitely one of the funniest things I've seen in a while!

Awww that was soo cute! "Cat motivational problems" lol. You could power a city off how many times my kitty and I shock each other in a year. <3

XD I first saw this on Fark and I was wondering when it was going to show up here.

*Has tried the kitty yodeling with her roommate's cat* X3;

Love! Must show this to nerdy BF who doesn't really like cats.

these guys are priceless. LOVE the cat yodelling, and the self-deprecating humour. Also Paul has a bit of a George Clooney thing going on, which can only help.

i'm an engineer and i couldn't stop loling.

the mating practices of engineers are definitely accurate.

was very fun to watch :)

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:21 AM

Well, OK. They do it in a very engineer-y kind of way. But it is very sweet and cute! And shows the kitteh love! I approve. No eye rolling here.

Watch his latest video to where he talks about him receiving several marriage proposals from numerous cat ladies

Am I the only one who noticed that Oscar was PITCH PERFECT during the cat yodeling part?

Wrench
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:42 AM

Oh. My. God. I married an engineer. This is accurate to the point of being frightening.

My favorite part? The peanut butter and jelly sandwich with...*gasp*...DIFFERENT kinds of jelly!

That, and "post-modern cardboard deconstruction."

bev
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:44 AM

I too married an engineer and have cats, this is pretty darn accurate - and I loved every minute of it! I will now annoy all of my friends by sending it to them.

And, I so have to try cat yodeling.

stubbedoo
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:52 AM

Oh please, make it stop! My sides are splitting.

As a professional engineer myself with a life-long "cat problem," this was the funniest thing I've ever seen. I can't begin to say how much of this is spot-on. The cat yodeling is priceless, I didn't know the practice even had a name. I just thought it was huggy-kitty time that usually ended with an annoyed kitty that gives me a 10 minute cat-scan from under potted plant.

Cats are excellent companions for engineers due to the high amusement to annoyance factor.

Ray
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:54 AM

Fabulous. Why isn't my cat an artist too? Although he is good at lounging, gotta give him that.

Mandy
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:56 AM

Those guys are sorta sexy. Oh yeah, and the cats are coot too.

Kim
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:56 AM

Ok, this was a little weird but also very cute. I also loved the cat yodeling.

I really needed a visit to CO today and this video was perfect. I attempted to rescue a kitten I found in the middle of the road on my way to work this morning, but unfortunately it died just as I got it to the Vet Hospital. I was so upset and a visit to Co was just what I needed. Thank GOD for animal lovers.

Noelle
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:57 AM

Whoops, should have been a capital CO at the end there. Sorry! Hard to type through tears.

Noelle
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:58 AM

I used to date an engineer... this is so right on! Cats are the engineers of the animal world!
OK, and "low energy cardboard performance art", made my day!

Marriage proposals? I'm surprised he's not getting ovaries in the mail.

OMG! Kitteh Yodeling is the BEST! I LOL'd like I never LOL'd before.

Chance

My favorite part was when the tuna was being dished out, and a marmalade paw reached for it accompanied by a rather pitiful meow.

That was great.

Areinaka
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:03 AM

LOL! Loved it!

zoid
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:09 AM

I am an engineer and I found that video hilarious. I do, however, think that those two engineers must be unemployed.....they have far too much time on their hands

Katydid
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:11 AM

I live with an engineer and his 2 cats - this was spot on! Very funny.

BustaMove
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:13 AM

hahahahahahahha this is one of the funniest things i've ever seen

That TOTALLY made my morning!

Off the link goes to my engineer brother in law who loves cats...

Kate
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:16 AM

Im so bummed, once again youtube killed it for me right when he served the tuna.....
Ill try again tomorrow.

To the woman with the emergency kitten, I know honey, bless you for trying.

Catsquatch
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:20 AM

AAAAAA!!! I haven't laughed so hard in quite a while. I can understand engineers doing exactly this. The kittehs were so patient, and the engineers so clinical... loved it!

whiskers
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:20 AM

OMG. I died laughing.

gillian
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:21 AM

OMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!1! I don't doubt that these guys got more ladies after posting this video. That may have even been their goal. Purrfecshun, gentlemen, absolute purrfecshun.

Love it! Paul is cute! The cats are adorable!

I love the part about "games like, I'm not paying any attention to you". When you're an engineer your job is to make things do what you want them to do. Paradoxically many engineers I know (because they are introverts?) likes cats because they can't be made to do that.

David
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:28 AM

this is a great video. So amusing. CAT YODELLING! Its great... squeeeeeeek

Nome of your videos are ever available. It's annoying and makes the website look tacky and amateur. How can you remedy this problem?

[Sorry, Chloe, but this isn't true. You need to have the Adobe Flash plugin installed in your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) to watch any YouTube video, and also whatever internet connection you have has to allow Flash video. Some folks' internet at work, for instance, have firewalls that block videos. Finally, if you've got any anti-scripting plugins installed, like NoScript for Firefox, you'll have to set it to "allow" YouTube.com. Link to free Flash install is below... - Ed.]

I loved all of it, but I especially liked the little touches, like the pantry that had nothing but dry cat food and tuna (for the cats) and multiple jars of peanut butter and jelly (for the engineers).

These guys are definitely engineers AND single. Did you notice their "early garage sale" furniture?

Paula
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:40 AM

i will totally marry this engineer AND his cats. then we can be the crazy cat couple.

and i am still in tears from laughing at the yodeling and the performance art. i think i might have s stroke. priceless!

Ashagato, the guys like this "in real life" are in the Engineering Department of your local university. They can also be found in small rooms in factories, on half-built bridges, and quite often in management positions in major business. The "engineeriness" of the latter is somewhat questionable, though.
True engineers are always distinguished by their lack of good fashion sense, their tendency to carry calculators roughly the size of a breadbox, and their complete inability to effectively relate to strangers of the opposite sex.
