LOVING the multiple kitty high fives... and the montage of kitty bonding at the end. The beginning song reminds me of some wacky cutscene from Scrubs.

I wonder if they remembered to add in the +2 attack bonus for higher ground? May have been negated by the penalties for partial cover... hmmm.

Looks like its a new cat tower. Cat towers are the best. I put mine next to the front door so that my cat can kiss me on the nose when I come in.

I wish I could get something like that for my two kitties...but they'd knock it over. We have one of the shorter, two hole ones. When Methos was a kitten he used to chase his tail in and out of the holes - be in the top and look through the bottom, see his tail and try to grab it, only to fall out of the hole onto his back. Lather, rinse, repeat. From time to time, when he was in the top hole, Poof would sit on top and bat at him - they'd play peekaboo. I know they'd love this, but the first time it wobbled Poof would never go near it again. And Methos? Well, he's 22# of pure muscle, so things wobble when he jumps off them. :)

Awesome! I love how the calico gnaws on the head of his foe/friend and then licks him later. Aww!

How SWEET a life do these kitties have?? I loved the soda box tower in the "opening credits". Awesome video.

At 2:44 I notice some armpit ticking...
DISQUALIFIED.

Louise

I like how one of the cats bites the tower in frustration midway through the battle and how the other cat lets his paws dangle mockingly when he is master of the tower. Ya gotta love them kitties.

Nice DND references:) Remember - Cats get >1 attack/round (claw, claw, bite, rend, rend)

This was terrific!
You know, you could easily attach one of these cat trees to a wall to make it more stable...

[SPOILER ALERT] I *knew* they were littermates and not just similar in appearance! So sweet in the end... further evidence of the power in shared meal.

hey guys. my 18 year old baby Chet died today, while i was cuddling him. he's been very sick for a while, so it wasn't a surprise. hug all your babies extra close!

Aw, sorry about Chet. That's so sad/

BTW - regarding the towers being tippy. I have a weight set I never use. I had a problem with the tower falling over and took weights that I never use and stacked them inside the bottom of the tower. I have 16 lbs of iron weights in there and it still will sway, but won't fall. Its the best use I've had for them.

This was the best! The grey with the white stripe on the nose! The tail fluffage! The dangling paws! These kittehs should have a webcam. No they shouldn't, I would watch it all day!

Also nice to see someone else's cat battles, without my having to referee them!

I love when Meg makes D&D references. :D Although it wouldn't be so cute if one of the housecats killed a level 1 peasant.

How can you tell the difference between when your cats are playing and fighting? I always think mine are fighting 'cuz they didn't get along at first. Now I'm not sure. Swatting is only accompanied by hissing 1/4 of the time.

The heroic music makes for the perfect "kitteh workout." You can just show this video to your cats to inspire them to greatness.

Sympathies to Chet's mamma. May your furry guardian angel bring you the comfort of good memories and loud purring.

(Great video too. Very Lord of the Rings.)

I loved it, too, but also wonder why tabby kitteh is pink around the collar area.

Best mouseover tip ever.

And Busta, don't forget Pounce: full attack on a charge.

"How can you tell the difference between when your cats are playing and fighting? I always think mine are fighting 'cuz they didn't get along at first. Now I'm not sure. Swatting is only accompanied by hissing 1/4 of the time."

I don't know really. I think you just have to use your own judgment. I've read that even hissing can be playful. These kitties, IMO, were not really trying to hurt each other. If they were, there'd be blood. I think it is pretty rare for domesticated cats to get into real fights with each other.

Haha I love the part at 2:57 where the white kitty is like "Yeah!!!! I did it!!!" lol cats are so smart :)

Chet's mamma...if only everyone could say they'd been loved like that...Hugs to you...

As for kittehs. What a life! Also love the montage at the end that shows these loving littermates together their whole lives. You could tell they never were really hurting each other.
Soooo sweet! Thanks for sharing.

Chet's momma, hugs to you. Chet was a lucky, lucky kitty to have you for a mom. My babies send you kisses.

Aww, chet's momma, my kitty and I are sorries. But such a lucky boy to have such a fine momma and to slip away to the Rainbow Bridge in her loving arms.
There'll be lots of The Kitties Who Came Before waiting to greet him.

As for the video, it's awesome!
