A Celebration of Pink Thing

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012

Hello, fans.

This week is roughly around the time the tiny human Pink Thing came into our home for the first time. Loud, squalling and lap-hoggy, the small two-legger quickly became a staple element in the lives of me and Big D. Since her lump-like days, she has become a source of petting, food, and games and her lap is almost big enough to be acceptable. It’s also big fun to race into her room fifteen minutes before she has to get up for school and howl frantically. Not because anything frantic is going on, but because she tends to sleep through regular meows.

Good times.

Anyway, today we’re sharing a few shots of what used to be for your amusement…

Big D and Pink Thing

Big D and Pink Thing — apparently Big D used to come running whenever Pink Thing had colic. Suckah.

At first Big D was quite a bit larger than Pink Thing. And very curious. I eyeballed the squaller from the sidelines and kept my distance. Considering how often icky stuff came out of her mouth, honestly, I think that was the wisest choice.

Meankitty tamer. No cats or babies were harmed in the taking of this photo.

After Pink Thing mastered the use of her hands, it was still some time before she could share food or give GOOD pets. Not to mention open cans.


This is NOT a good pet. Well, the humans think Big D is a good pet, what with his endless patience and all.

Mom, the floor feels so soft!

This is also a “bad pet”. You’ll notice *I* do not appear in any of these photos. Unlike Big D, I have a brain and a highly developed sense of self-preservation.

Pink Thing, as stated, is a lot bigger than that now. Big D and I sit on HER instead of the above travesty of cat justice. To all you cats out there who have had to suffer the long wait for a pink thing to grow into a can-opening human, I salute you!

Scary Black and White Cats

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

My Typing Slave and I have been doing this thing at her blog lately where I take one of her lame human author friends’ books and fix it with proper obeisance to cats. I call it a cattification. Anyway, as we were working on an improved cover, we happened to notice some similarities in a few of the black and white cats in my Gallery. To wit:


Bundles is a meankitty


And Bogart, aka Bogie

Bogie is a meankitty

And Baggy

Baggy is a meankitty

And Skittles (NOT the same cat as Baggy)

Skittles is scary

And Sir Oliver

Sir Oliver is annoyed with you

And Flash

Flash is mad

And Hunter

Hunter is a meankitty

Don’t know what it is about those black and whine felines, but they are AWESOME, aren’t they? If you have a feline in a similar pose, or even a nice pose that happens right before the attack, you should probably submit it to the Gallery, you know.




Battle of the Boos

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

Greetings, Meankitty fans!

Meankitty scares you.

Having fun with the creepiest month so far? Today we’re going to do something a little different. As our site has been collecting stories and pictures of evil felines for 10-ish years now, we’ve had a few repeated names in our time. Today we’re going to post all the cats who are named Boo. IE, the Battle of the Boos. Then tomorrow we’ll post a poll in the sidebar as to which Boo you guys think is the scariest. In preparation for tomorrow’s post be sure to check back here and see all 5 Boos and also answer the poll currently in the sidebar, since, hey!, polls are fun.

If you have a cat named Boo who isn’t on the site but needs to be, this would be the day you’d want to send him or her in. Maybe your cat will win the title of Ultimate Boo.

May the best Boo win!

October is the Creepiest Month

Monday, October 11th, 2010

In honor of Halloween month, the rest of the cats posted in October are going to be Halloween themed. That doesn’t mean they’ll be wearing hockey masks, although possibly one or two will, but they’ll have spooky names or appearances or be posed with pumpkins or the like.

If you have a Halloweenish cat you think needs to appear in this calvalcade of creepiness, send us a submission!
