www.breadedcats.com is one of the strangest sites I've seen in some time. I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged into their bread, or why.

I know this is as Metafilter hot topic, but it seems obvious to me that these people have declawed their cats.

Or drugged them.

Or my beloved cats have a much. much, much lower tolerance for nonsense.

This struck me as something that was lame before it was a thing, and has since become super-lame. But maybe I just hate this look-at-my-quirky-twee-photooooes sort of thing. And also food-wasting.

Do these people never sleep? Because my cats would kill me in mine, were I to attempt to bread them.

Another reason dogs are better than cats. Dogs are way too smart hungry to be breaded.

We breaded Fiona T. Cattington (link goes to F'book profile: she will accept friend requests from literally anyone, so knock yourself out if you want to be Facebook friends with a cranky, runty gray tabby). And I can assure you she has not been declawed, nor was she drugged, nor was she particularly happy about it. But making fun of the cat is one of our primary means of amusement around the slkinsey household.

You are completely ignoring the cat humiliation part of this, which can absolve pretty much any sin.

I, too, wonder how people actually managed this. My cats would likely not tolerate such insolence.

When I read the URL, I immediately thought of 'breaded' as in chicken fingers. Yes, I'm a sick fuck.

cat humiliation

Honestly, our big, black tomcat loves both accessories and attention. He'd be all about this. When we put his ridiculous, ruffly-red-velvet jingle-bell collar on at Christmastime, he struts around like he's cock of the walk. He knows how great he looks.

I don't know that it's really possible to predict what a cat will and won't abide by. I've never tried putting bread on one but my parents' cat really likes it when you slap her on top of the head. Not hard or anything, just little firm slaps in rapid succession. She loves that shit. Leans into it and everything. It's entirely possible that having bread put on them just sort of presses some rarely-found cat button and they're completely okay with it. Cats are weird.

Wait, the people don't eat these sandwiches? I don't have a cat so wasn't sure how this worked. Explains the lack of condiments though, I guess.

Well at least I know I'm not the only one who's had cats that are way into carbs. I have one cat who can spot what bread or bagels look like and will decimate and starch left lying around. Said cat also loves lentils. Who knew?

As Dark Messiah alluded, Cobert said last week on his show that all of his Super PAC funds -- over $1,000,000 -- were going to breadedcats. Given that this site looks to be only a couple of days old, I think odinsdream has got it.

Is this really a breaded cat? With a bone around its neck in addition to the bread around its head? It looks like dog owners also don't want to be left out of the fun. (If 'fun' is the right word for all this.)

We never buy it... haven't eaten white bread except in a hamburger or hotdog bun for years. Screw the health reasons... white bread is just kind of gross. There' so much delicious flavour hiding in that loaf of rye.. or whole wheat... mmm...


Also, I may have to try this on members of my cat herd. I predict one or two successes followed by the loss of a lot of blood as I move down the line.

When was the Colbert thing? Because a friend of mine and I suspected that this was something Gawker invented.

We tried this with a paper bag. Yorvit was unamused and Roswell was all "Are you fucking kidding me?"

I don't think bread would bring any more success.

Tacky bread, my MIL called it. It is gross, with three exceptions:

grilled cheese sandwiches
post-Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches
homegrown tomato sandwiches

I like how there's almost an universally shared look of "HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME?! I HATE YOU!" on all the cats.

It seems to run the gambit of people who cut out places in the bread, or at least poked holes in it, to faciliate a cat's head and those who simply rammed the cat's face into the bread until it emerged on the other side of the slice.

Gawker made this up, with the obvious intention of simply creating a stupid internet meme. They first posted about it one day, and then declared it "over" that night.

That said, Metafilter's very own meme of "is one of the strangest sites I've seen in some time" is about as tiring as a Reddit image macro and can we please declare that one over too?

Check again. Several of those cats look just like dogs.

headnsouth: I respectfully disagree. Light Rye bread is superior for all of these stated applications, however I am told that it is not available in all places. and by that I mean this, not this.

Would it be evil to take this one notch higher and roll my cat in egg before covering her with the breadcrumbs?


Icky white bread-- ...three exceptions:

grilled cheese sandwiches
