I don't think this is a calico. But still verrrrry cute!

One portion of that please!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 04:39 AM

Sweeeet! But that's a tabby cat, not a calico.

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 04:43 AM

Tabby, calico, who cares? It's the earsies, peeps, the ears!!

*resists urge to bury face in kitteh fur and inhale deeply*

It's my opinion this is probably a tabby. It's also my opinion that it certainly is cute!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 04:47 AM

Well, IMO, this is not a kitteh puddle but a beaded-up droplet of kitteh.

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 05:05 AM

I see three colors- that's a calico. A little calico pudding cup. Reminds me of the cartoon where the dog is hiding the kitteh by using him as a powder puff.

d00d, this one's practically an ANTIQUE in internet years...

the appropriate response to "phenom-meh-nah" is "Dee dee de-de-de" (in sing song voice of course).

I wonder if April Showers bring Calico puddles!!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 05:28 AM

In our house, it's "Do Dooo, da doo doo..." ;-) (We have dogs, so that might explain it it...hee!)

Oh, and very cute kitty!!!

I name him Charlie Chaplin with his big featherpants, splayed feets and wings that look like a baggy jacket .... I can imagine him waddling along and looking quizically at the world around him. I lub him.

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 05:43 AM

one of my personal favorites. I don't know about you guys, but I could totally go for a swim in that delightful kitteh puddle!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 06:04 AM

You can't fool me-- that's a Mini-Monorail Cat.

Monorail? Monorail!

According to Ben Stein, the mainstream scientific community believes that life began when lightning struck a kitteh puddle.

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 06:46 AM

I remember this from when I first started perusing CO. The blobulence is killer.

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:07 AM

Kitteh pudding ! *nom-nom*

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:14 AM

Adorable. But a tabby cat. Not a Calico. Calicoes have large blotches of pure colour. (I've had beautiful calico cats in my life since I was born. I suppose I'm a calico snob XD )

Though with it's amount of cuteness I say it it multiplied because it's a tabby and therefore not as stereotypically cute as other coloured cats. It makes up for it in those delightful ear-tuffs.

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:30 AM

If this is a kitteh puddle, then I don't mind singin' in the rain!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:51 AM

Kitteh loaf!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had one of these babies for sixtten years and the term that always got used was 'calico tabby' because she was both. Big white splotches and mottled brown/grey/black tabby. It sort of stops the argument from both sides.

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:04 AM

Actually maybe a tabby or maybe not it actually could be a (Torby?? I always get these confused.)
it is both a calico and tabby combined.

they look like a mix of an orange and brown tabby with splotches of each all over their body

Here is a picture of Magneato


And another one, Miss Huggums who is metsakins kitty.


But maybe some one with a more clear understanding of them could chime in.. I think once some one posted a link to a discription of the cat colors and all their presentations .

phenom-meh-non please (singular, not plural)

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:20 AM

writtenwyrdd JYNX!!! HEhehehe

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:21 AM

SMFR -- since this is basically a duplicate post, I'd say "phenomena" works.


 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 09:23 AM

It made me gasp with delight when I saw him/her!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 09:30 AM

'Tisn't a kitteh puddle: 'Tis a CATerpillar!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 09:48 AM

I think that might actually be a type of persian called "shaded golden". it's hard to tell though because its eyes are closed, and they have characteristic crazy huge green eyes. click on my link to see an example.

Could a calico and a tabby be a Cabby?? Heee!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 10:20 AM

OMG! Thx Kris for the muppet link! I have a compulsion to "doot dooo da-do-do" every time I hear the word phenomena just because of those fuzzy fellas!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 10:36 AM

This is one of my very favorite posts! Thank you soooooooooooo much!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 10:43 AM

Torbie. Great. Thanks Theo. My kitten, Cleo, is one of those. Samantha, a cat I had many years ago, was also one, with a lot of white.

The kitten in the picture is enough to make one melt.

It looks like you would need a spatula to pick this kitteh up. And a non-stick pan.

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 12:15 PM

Those sweet little closed eyes! Ahhhhhhh...

(Hahahaha @ tribble!)

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 12:30 PM

Oooh, It's the wooly kittapillar! I've seen this before, and makes me "awww" every time.

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 01:06 PM

I think you'll find it's a patched tabby or torbie and is very cute!!!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 03:34 PM

Just for the record (because I am a NERD):


The song was from a Swedish film, and first performed by the Muppets on the Ed Sullivan Show (and later on Sesame Street) before being revived for the first episode of the Muppet Show.

And it's not Animal who sings it (though the guy has wild hair that kind of looks like Animal's).

I wish I were this kitteh.

It's a tortotabipointico!!

And now, for you genetics nerds, the reason why those girlcats are so cool: http://www.messybeast.com/tricolours.htm

 |  Apr 19, 2008 at 06:50 AM

ooo, I see the Tarepanda line has been expanded! Tarekitteh, I like it!

 |  Apr 19, 2008 at 09:55 AM

I raised and showed Persians for 25 years. This is a brown patched tabby. The white muzzle shows it's a true tabby.

 |  Apr 19, 2008 at 10:12 AM

Oh kitteh! I would mop yew up ANYtime!
