Can You Count the Kittens?

Are there four, five, or six of these hyper kittens? You’ll have to wait till they all conk out. Their mother is auditioning for a role as a symbol of stoicism.

Counting kittens is hard. You can practice by counting the guppies in the aquarium at the pet store. Take care not to burn out your brain.

A Tail of Two Kitties

Sorry about the headline, but I simply couldn’t bear to let it go to waste. Maybe one of you can use it as the title of a story.

I now feel like a bad guy because I didn’t give my kittens balls of yarn. Patty likes to knit, so we usually have yarn; it just never occurred to me to share it with cats. Ours had to settle for pipe cleaners, cardboard boxes, and jingly balls. Oh, well…

Little Cat, Big Lizard

This is a remarkably patient and tolerant lizard: he must have a good home. The kitten has no idea how close he is to being bitten. There’s just a tiny bit of lizard body language to suggest he wouldn’t mind if the cat went somewhere else. But these two are going to be good friends before long. Trust me, I’ve seen it done.

I don’t think the colossal green lizard we see at the end of the video is real.

Fierce Kitten vs. Movie Star Look-Alike Mouse

I hasten to add that no toy mice were injured in the making of this video.

But I’m not going to tell you which particular movie star the toy mouse looks like. No–I’m interested in which one you think it looks like. It’s a kind of poll. Results will be published tomorrow.

Hyper Kittens

When we first brought Buster and Missy home, it didn’t take me long to say “Are you sure there’s only two of them?” Like the kittens in this video, they were all over the place.

There is a hotly contested theory that cats, and especially kittens, have the ability to be in more than one place at a time. And most of those are places where they’re not supposed to be.

Sweetness Break: A Pile of Kittens

(It’s a good thing I’m a swordsman, or I’d never get away with being so sappy. But gee–piles of kittens! What could be sweeter than that?)

If this doesn’t cause chains of little hearts to stream out from your head, I don’t know what will. Has God heaped blessings on our plates, or what?

Kittens & Curtains

That guinea pig video was a bit short, so here are some kittens to go with it.

Of all the cats we’ve had, only Buster had a yen to climb curtains. That became more problematic as he grew bigger and bigger. My iguana gave up curtains after he grew too big to climb without ripping them. No such consideration ever crossed Buster’s mind–he was a very happy-go-lucky cat.

Kittens vs. The Sandman

All right, enough nooze–time for something soothing.

Why do these little characters try so hard to stay awake? Well, didn’t you do that when you were little? And haven’t you ever fallen asleep while sitting up?

You are getting sleepy, sleepy, very sleepy… (zzzzzzzzz)

Ferocious Kittens Commandeer Bathtub

See that? Now you can’t take a bath! These wild, untamed, ravaging kittens have even torn up toilet paper! Just imagine what they’d do to a hapless human being. No wonder the ancient Phrygians made it against the law to take baths with kittens.

Kittens & Puppies: The Saga Continues!

Okay, there is no Icelandic saga dealing with kittens and puppies. But if there were, it’d look exactly like this video. Trust me, I’m an expert.

Fascinating False Fact: Genghis Khan was once chased up a tree by a kitten.
