Complete and total DESPARAY-SHONS

I hope you're sitting down.

Because what you're about to see is staggering. And sad.

It's about a Kitteh—a desparate kitteh—who needs boxhab, so, so badly. [Shaking head] I hope you can stand to watch.

It's so sad when you see that box addiction right in front of you.

(I lol'd. Loud.)

Oh golly, that was just awesome.

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 06:11 AM

Ha! My big creamsicle cat Spencer does the same thing!

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 06:21 AM

Love the splayed-out feet sticking out of the back!

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 06:31 AM

Splayed 'tocks at the end FTW!

I dunno Meg, I think this Puddy Tat is still in the earliest stages - why he's still ENJOYING his box habit!
I do predict you will be right down the road, and this delicious looking kitteh WILL need boxhab later in his life.

Peeps! Check out the linked below sliding box-cat video!!!
very very funny

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 06:53 AM

Wow. I did NOT see that coming.

And, yes, it's the splayed back paws that make this.

Do you think he'd be interested in tryin gout for our luge team?

Nice Newtonian physics demonstration for the high school lab. It involves force, momentum, cat goofiness. . .

First the wiggle-wiggle as he gets ready to attack , then he looks like he is slideing home from third. HEEEESSSS SAFE

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 07:17 AM

Let's sum up.

Butt wiggles in preparation.





Bravo box diver kitty. Bravo.

Slide, Kitteh, Slide!!

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 07:23 AM

Love the tocks shot at the end!!!!

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 07:29 AM

I'm thinking I want to try this myself. We haven't had a good snowstorm in years so this might work for me. I'll need to work on my butt wiggle.

Hee hee! I have to agree with Michele, that was the best part. Neither one of my cats is box happy, though one will work for hours tearing them apart one little piece at a time. All I hear is *rip, ptooey, rip, ptooey*

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 07:55 AM

Only thing cuter than kittens is a cat with marshmallow chubbiness.

All these years I've been fishing for kitties, I've never caught even one. Now I know why. I was using the wrong lure! (goes off to tie a box fly)

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 07:57 AM

ROFL.... I can't stop laughing at the slide w/ the splayed feet at the end! Too hilarious

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 08:00 AM

@I wuvs puttens: ROFL!!! "Rip, Ptooey!"

Think we have a new sport on our hands: Box Diving!

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 08:41 AM





 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 08:44 AM

i wanna have a go too!! it looks tewtelly fun!

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 08:47 AM

This had me laughing out loud for almost a full minute.

Butt wiggle and splayed kitteh feet. My Sunday is complete.

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 08:58 AM

OH, sway sway, sway charge!

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 09:05 AM

Pok! Ssssslide
XD I laughed hard.

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 09:48 AM

thanks, yitzymom! the other boxcat one's hilarious, too! cats are so funny...

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 09:51 AM

I nearly just spat my soda out laughing at those little legs sticking out of the box.

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 09:51 AM

*snort* that toadilly made my sunday!!!!

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 10:04 AM

i love the splayed feet at the end. lol

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 10:19 AM

I'm afraid this is a much graver issue than you might think. This cat is obviously already suffering from a severe box addiction, as can be seen in this slightly longer vid:


Sad, sad indeed.

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 10:29 AM

Is that a British Shorthair??

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 10:31 AM

I love "le butt wiggle." My kitties do this before they pounce into their hiding tunnels. :)

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 10:37 AM

8.5 for degree of difficulty. 9 for artistry. 10 for execution and splayage.

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 10:37 AM

Okay, everyone HAS to watch the link mie posted 4 comments up. It has more camera angles and even more splayage.

As for the boxhab treatment -- how many times do I have to tell you behaviorist, SYSTEMATIC DESENSITIZATION DOES NOT WORK FOR ADDIC-SHUNS! Get this cat to a 12-step-splay group, Stat!

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 10:47 AM

at my house we call the tocks at the end pancake butt. :-)

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 11:02 AM

I loled! His little fat feet are too cute when he slides into that box.

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 11:29 AM

I'm with berthaservant -- you HAVE to watch the longer clip -- the last shot is just great...

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 11:44 AM

LOLLLLLLLkkkkkhhhhhhhh ::sputter sputter::

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 11:59 AM

The longer clip is genius! That cat clearly has a chronic box habit

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 12:00 PM

Dive dive dive!!!

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 12:09 PM

One of the cutest things ever on CO!

That simply has to be Japan. Something about the shape of the cat and those pristine, glass-like wood floors.

Michelle S
 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 12:25 PM

The longer clip is excellent. Poor kitty. I hope its owners can get it down to one dive a day soon.

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 12:27 PM

*rofl* really funny.

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 12:29 PM

Also, that cat is like the Japanese Winston apparently. Its owner has a zillion videos of it on Youtube.

This sink video is cute :D


 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 12:31 PM


This may just be the most important video ever produced.

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 12:34 PM

Everyone, watch the clip mie posted! More camera angles, longer vid, more tocks...and the gentle sway of the tail as kitty contemplates box-nirvana. perfect.

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 12:36 PM

I have been watching the other vids on this kitty, and I must say, he's adorable and also LARGE.

(the original) Mel
 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 01:25 PM

I *WILL* have my box!!!!!

 |  Sep 28, 2008 at 01:35 PM

No, no, kitteh! No, kitteh! Don't do eet! Noooo!
