I suggest smokin' some Humboldt Gold County before watching this

Serious. Toke on up. It's the only way to deal.

Tracie P., I don't even know what she ended up making in the end. I just liked watching the paws, Man.

So, uh, what's a chou chou?

That was awesome. I am adopting a cat this weekend! I hope it knows how to sew...well, knowing how to clean and do dishes while I am away at work would be a better skill. Kitty should earn her keep! Kitty litter don't grow on trees!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:16 AM

looks to be a scrunchie.
chou chou isn't that cabbage in french.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:16 AM

WHO DOES THIS!?! Who? *dies* lol

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:20 AM

Wow, that cat has a better sewing machine than I do. Mine can only go over pins veeeeery slowly.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:22 AM

Ummmm.... zuh?

I'm lucky if my cat can roll over when one side of his ass gets numb from lying on it for four hours straight...

How do you pin without opposable thumbs?
That's talent, that is.

What does this cat charge for curtains? I need some new ones.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:25 AM

Whoooo that cat has mad skills! The music reminds me of this, without the "tangy" backup dancers.


 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:25 AM

Either those are some gigantic paw paws or really tiny iron.

One Hundred Splendid Luck Chou Chou is the pleasure of this comment maker. ^_^

I can't believe I just watched that for seven minutes.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:34 AM

LOL @ the singing "Meow Meow Meow Meow!" at the start!!!

The way kitteh fluffs the scrunchies for display ... KEELingk me!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:35 AM

I LOVE those paws. For sure, the big kitty is making Scrunchies. I'm thinking "chou chou" is Japanese. I mean, who else could invent those FABULOUS PAWS!? Wouldn't they be great to wear with an evening dress instead of long white gloves? Or, maybe that's just me...

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:37 AM

I am going to have that beat in my head all day... I love it... weird and all.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:39 AM

1. I actually watched that whole thing?
2. Where are the nuffers when you need them ("the kitty could have gotten hurt").
3. Aren't those things 99 cents at the dollar store?
4. Where do you get the kitty paws?
5. ... uh oh ....

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:39 AM

I'm speechless.

Now where did I leave that Humboldt Gold? I hope it's not too late...

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:52 AM

@MEGarde, here ya go: Omigod the kitty could have sewn it's paws together or scalded itself on the iron or stuck a pin in it's eye and it's probably working in a illegal kitty sweatshop omigod omigod omigod!!! ;)

Seriously though, this is so bizarre it's AWESOME. Love how the kitty "paws" push the finished products proudly out for us to see, then preens and floofs the ruffles. REDONK.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:53 AM

All of the above comments and, where do I get a kitty-sized iron? Japan, I bet.

OK, the arms/paws are just above the creepy line. Giving the impression that a cat is making whatevertheheckitis(and I sew and craft) is waaaayyyyy beyond creepy.

That's seven minutes I'll never get back. I watched it soundless because my son is studying nearby. I just figured the sound would be creepy too. I am, apparently, correct. On to the tteeennyy ttiinnyy deeerette again!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:55 AM

This kindof turned me on a little.

pass that kitteh!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:05 PM

Martha Stewart eat your heart out! Not only does CO have the cute, we have the crafty cute!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:07 PM

Bizzar but fun. Wish my cats could do something constructive... LOL.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:10 PM

3. Aren't those things 99 cents at the dollar store?

Yes, and it's the hard labor of sweatshop kitties like this one that ensures that American girls can continue to dress their hair like it's still the 90s, all for under a buck per scrunchie.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:11 PM

I could have used this gifted kitteh in junior high school Home Ec. I started out with meager sewing skills, attempting to sew a brown skirt, and ended the term with a brown pillowcase. I think the teacher passed me out of pity!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:12 PM

Oh, silly! You can't smoke Humboldt Gold, it's a beer!

That was surreal and awesome!

[It's beer?? For real? I thought it was a type of penguin... - Ed.]

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:12 PM

(the original) Mel:

very bizarre & creepy!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:14 PM

That's a dangerous suggestion there, Miss Meg- some reader going to get a little wacky, come to CO, and wake up with two questions:

"Why does my stomach hurt? And where are my stuffed animals?"

I hope you have Catastrophic Hilarity insurance!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:16 PM

ok. chou chou when googled means baby doll or doll, so i dont get it.
the thing they made looks like a hair doo-dad, so is chou chou refering to the extremely talented finger pupp, er... i mean, cat paws or what? that's what i'm thinkin, and anyway what a dumb cat, any good seamstress knows you dont sew with pins! what an amateur.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:18 PM

Humboldt Gold is beer? That's a relief! I thought for a minute there was a suggestion we should all commit a crime. That doesn't seem in keeping with the qte. As for the sewing kitteh, now I know what I should have taught my kitteh to do as a career instead of just loaf around. She could be working 9-5 in a sweatshop right this very minute! Dang!

Mary (the first)
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:23 PM

Yeah, seven minutes of my life I won't get back. But what a talented kitty! My cats can barely manage to destroy things, much less create...

I agree that a chou chou must be some kind of scrunchie...but at 64" of fabric, it may be a neck ruffle...I was waiting for the end to see if the kitty modeled her handi (pawdi-?) work.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:30 PM

I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I think I could putz along to that "music" all day long.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:32 PM

I wanted to hear more meows in the music! Meow meow meow uh ba chich uh ba chich meow meow meow meow meow...........

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:33 PM

Ok, I'm thinking that a "Chou Chou" is what the wacky Asians call a tutu -- for CATS!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:35 PM

OH! I get it, hair scrunchies. Check.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:35 PM

Crap, I need another name other than Humboldt Gold then!

I couldn't stop watching. I wanted to, but couldn't. When I finally saw what was being made, I said out loud "you've GOT to be kidding me...she made a scrunchie??!"

The comment above saying "who does this?" made me laugh out loud because I couldn't have put it better.

I think its cruel to make a cat do that sort of work, its like child labour

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:45 PM


Double-yoo. Tee. Eff.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:45 PM

@Sonja -- that's so bizarre that it just may be true!!

I agree that the "paws" were creepy, especially in the ironing scenes where the legs looked 2 feet long without any sort of bone joint. I kept waiting for the claws to come out and slice the "chou chou" to ribbons, WITHOUT scissors!!

When you have a sewing kitteh, who needs scissors???

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:54 PM

Well, seven minutes in cat years, y'know, is only, ehm, oh, ...I need a catculator!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 12:58 PM

But the way the paws floofed each one as they showed it was funny.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 01:00 PM

Meg: how about Madagascar Mellow?

Michelle S
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 01:00 PM

WOW.. what a creepy video.

Even more creepy?? You can buy cat paws and tails (fake of course) here:


 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 01:01 PM

zomg, this is AMAZING. i felt like i was being hypnotized. best video i've seen in a looooonnnng time.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 01:02 PM

Panama Red?

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 01:04 PM

'Humboldt County'
'maui wowie'
'thai stick'
'peruvian flak'...oops no, not that one.
