Applications to ship-in-bottle concept?

You thought Bonsai Kitty was a hoax. (SLYT; cute)

Youtube has a bunch of videos of cats getting in bottles (YT search) and other glass containers (video link), but this is the best.

Now all they need is a lid for that bottle. (Kidding.)

Further proof that cats are actually a liquid at room temperature, not a solid.

I guess that's one way to keep the dog from eating the cat's food.

I totally have to do this, to keep Nigel (the obese cat) from eating Bart (the skinny cat)'s high fat, high protein food.

I am reminded of our Big Fat Main Coon, Cat. Who, in addition to being awesome and following me and my brother to school, was about 80% fuff. When we gave her a flea bath, she shrunk down to large rat. It wasn't fun for anyone involved. But this? this video? It is. Go squeezy kitty!

Oh YAY teh cute. Man, that rascal is flexible. I'm crazy about the zippy little 50's/60's soundtrack. Anybody know who sung that?

I'll see your cute kitten and raise you a Cat vs Printer.

PS the cat in the tiny goldfish bowl of your last link was incredible. What a surprise!

Cat attacking printer sounds like artillery fire! Yikes!

Where does a cat go when it loses its tail?

The retail store.

Love the music. Who was it, what's it called, etc?

I like it too; it fits well. The comments contain no hints (although many commenters ask about it). I've dispatched a message to the YouTube poster and will relay any response.

Is it so wrong for me to dream of having delicious kitty milk on my breakfast cereal some day?

CUUUUUUTE!

And Cat vs. Printer slays me every time, partly because that calico looks not unlike my own fat animal. (Bonus picture of snuggly kitty in dryer.)

aww grapefruitemoon, the "fluff cycle". Sweet Tubsleydale, she's so pretty! And not so tubsly. Just pleasantly plump. Interesting genetics of calico cats.

(Followup: the poster of the YT video doesn't know what the music is; she didn't create the video and apparently doesn't know who did; etc.)

That cat in a goldfish bowl is just about the only interweb thing that ever literally made me LOL. And here is a dancing bird.

You realize of course, that this thread proves that cats are merely furry octopi.

awwww, I totally love that Snowball dancing vid. Must have watched that crazy bird do his thing a gazillion times. It's so fun when his caretaker claps in the end and Snowball pops his crest, takes a bow, really agreeing with what a gas dancing is. That vid made science history in studying the appreciation of rhythm in animals.

grobstein, had fun looking up fxs just now. Found an artillery fire for you and some cool glass breaking. Something like that must have been used in the cat vs printer vid.

The Whelk, thanks for the education about production music.

moonmilk, I'll see your dancing cockatoo and raise you a mini horse on the loose (this is a bluff, I know it's not remotely as good as Snowball, no way no how, but it's still cute amokness).

PS, I think we should have a Cephalopod Appreciation and Amazement Society. Those critters are *mind blowing*. I just can't eat calamari anymore after being on the blue. I see those chewy circles and know I'm eating a marine genius, a creature that if it were human would have been an Einstein. Can't do it.

nicky: Ha, Wensleydale IS a tubby. Those pictures aren't terribly recent. She's a Big Beautiful Kitty, I promise you.

I would totally join. I even have a tshirt.

(I actually have a whole octopus collection. They really are amazing creatures.)

Upper East Side Kitty pays $2800 a month for that bottle, plus utilities.

I'm with you nickyskye. I haven't eaten calamari in years and always make a point of talking about the intelligence of cephalopods while dining (I think most of my acquaintance are really sick of it by now).

grapefruitmoon, aww, adorable cephalopod and teddy wonderfulness.

nikitabot, thanks for the validation. My heart lurches now when I see cephalopods in fishing nets or on the menu. Awesome posts and comments on the blue did that to me.
