  1. You totally scooped me on this video. :)

    The kitty yodeling made me lose it. No wonder cats always hurk up hairballs in the most inconvenient places- it’s revenge.

  2. What a lovely way to start my Sunday! (Yes, at 11 a.m., shut up.) Anything involving kitty performance art, deadpan delivery by an engineer, and the Mozart Requiem Mass qualifies as weird enough to start the day out on the right note.

    When I met my fiancé, he had two cats (now we have four). I remember the first time he “played the kitty” for me. Cat yodeling is a time-honored musical sport.

    Also, we practice corporal cuddling with similar results. It’s best to trim claws, first.


  4. As a woman with three cats, I totally wish to marry this guy, or the other guy, or or whoever was most in charge of that terrific video.
