It has it marked private! Let the rest of us SEEEEEEEEE……
Your internet stalkers
LOLS! No private! naughty naughty!
Stalky stalky stalk stalk.
It’s private? Fix iiit 🙁 I need my daily kitten-fix
A private video is the best way to ensure not being disturbed.
It’s private! 🙁
But..but…kitty snoozing!! *pouts*
It’s private 🙁 I neeeeeed my daily kitten-fix
It’s a trick, I tell ya! 😉
Aw da kitty can not be seen!
As Joan Rivers would say, “Can we talk?”
Apparently it is just a tease.
Not sure if anyone mentioned this or not…..but the video is “private”.
He is too cute! Cuteness squared even. He needs a kitty night mask. hahaha
I’m in love with Hunter S. Thomcat.
What a wonderfully weird little creature HST is!!
I am so envious of Hunter S. Thomcat. I’m waiting to have a baby and apparently sleep is not something I need. Also, he is way cuter than I am right now.
Yay! Fixed and I really wish I could sleep that soundly.
It’s playing now – Too funny!!
OMG…that was the cutest thing ever!
Whew, I sure am glad this wasn’t set to private. That would be a horrible tease! Thank you, Jenny!
I WANT SOME OF WHAT HE HAD.
Hunter S. Thomcat is way too cute.
Weirdly enough…this is how I sleep. Which is why I think Hunter S. Tomcat and I would be great friends.
Gosh, I wish!
He’s so flipping adorable. i want a snuggly kitten now!
D’AAAWWWWW IZ KYUTE.
The most wunnerful thing about kittens, is kittens are wunnerful things.
Ah, come on that’s so cute! He’s a little, tired baby 🙂
You’re a brave soul. If I tried that with my evil kitty, I would come back with a stump for a hand.
I want a new kitty, so adorable!
Unemployment has given me an unfortunate case of insomnia, so I’ll have whatever he had, times two. 😀
AAAAAHHHHHH, to be able to sleep with my butt in the air like that.
He’s actually multi-tasking. Doing yoga and sleeping takes a lot of concentration.
Simply adorable as always!
I wants him! I wants to put him in my pockets and feed him cheeses and take him out to make me smile. 😀
No yoga position is as relaxing as downward cat.
Becoming ‘one’ with the furniture…
Cats sleep in the strangest positions!
Life is awesome because ORANGE KITTENS.
Holy shit, that’s adorable
LOL! Too cute!
I LOVE THIS! My siamese kitten does a similar thing when he sleeps. He’s like the Egyptian Sphynx but with his forehead on the ground. His other favorite pose is on his back with his legs akimbo and his little kitty mouth hanging open. You can’t wake him. Tug his feet, tickle his belly – NOTHING. My kids call him the “kitten who sleeps like the dead”.
(It’s somehow appropriate that this space has turned into a cat blog.) Clearly, HST has been into your medicine cabinet – look at that hangover face!
Oh no, did he get into the ether again?
Just FYI, I do know how to speak correctly. 😀 But you can’t NOT speak kittenese when you see cuteness like this! <3 Also I think he's saying: MOOOOOOMMMMM!!! Leave me'lone! I'm trying to sleeps!
OMG. He is so cute! He looks just like our X-Ray Cat.
I mean… wouldn’t you sleep on your head like that if you’d gone on a catnip binge? This is Hunter S. Thomcat we’re talking about.
Ginger kitty is a hoot.
kittens are so adorable!
He is too cute for words, thank you for sharing! Our Stella often sleeps with her paws over her eyes, but not in that cute of a position. Hmmm. I see a future training session with her daddy-o, Sugar, coming up.
I love cats. This is why.
GOOD GOD I just keeled over from cute overdose. And I’m the one who doesn’t like cats. Fackin’ wizard, Jenny.
Why you gotta be botherin’ me when I’m sleepin’?
But Mooooooooommmmmmmmm! Just 5 more minutes! I was having that dream about the catnip.
Does he think he’s an ostrich?
I loves Hunter! I miss having a kitten 🙁 Thanks for sharing Hunter’s adventures!
Awww….I wish I could sleep on my head while standing up! Too cute!
Serious cuteness overload! How on earth can he do that?!?
He’s….I’m not sure there’s an accurate adjective. Oddly adorable?
Man, just think of the hangover that cat’s gonna have.
I’ve actually slept that soundly, I was drunker than shit….does that count?
What a sweet cat. (p.s. I love the upholstery!)
Question- How long will a reader sit and stare at a black screen waiting for a photo to load?
Answer- I’m not sure yet. I’m up to 15 minutes, but I’ll have to get back to you on the final minute count!
I am so in love with your cat I can hardly stand it. Makes me want an orange kitty of my own SO bad.
I love that way too much! Maybe HST will start a new sleeping trend 🙂
Since my Morgan is an incredibly prey driven dog and tried to eat the kitten I brought home last weekend (and have since returned to the rescue group), I will have to live vicariously through you and Hunter’s kitten cuteness.
And here I thought mine slept weird. He stretches out beside me on his back, curled up in my arm and sleeps. Then he stretches his back legs out like he’s a little kitteh stripper. It’s the cutest thing.
This is completely awesome!!!
That reminds me of how my girls used to sleep when they were babies- face down with their little bottoms sticking up in the air.
That is one strange cat.
The very talented Hunter S. Tomcat seems to be adept at doing yoga in his sleep. This would be a modified headstand (Salamba Sirsasana).
I think this is a case of sudden cat nap attack
That cat is too incredibly cute for words.
How do you not just pick him up and go, “smoooooooochsmoochsmoochsmooch”. That’s what I’d hafta do.
Cats are the sh*t.
Your yoga cat is freaking adorable. What did you give him to sleep like that?
Was I the only one expecting him to whip around in a furious storm of teeth and claws and teach a lesson about why we do not disturb? …maybe I’ve just had meaner cats? He seems pretty chilled out!
my son does that… I call it downward facing baby
Awww!! So cute!
Our girl Joon was like that at the shelter. We thought we might like her, but she wouldn’t be budged from inside the kitty condo so we had to come back later that day. A few years later and interrupting naptime is still not met with good results.
I’m more into dogs, but you’re pretty sassy and cool, so I’ll let it slide. 😉
I think your kitten has a condition known as cerebellar hypoplasia. The cerebellum helps a body know which way is up and coordinate motion, hypoplasia means it didn’t develop normally and he can’t figure out which way is up. It usually happens when the queen is infected with the panleukopenia virus while pregnant.
Something interesting to know and share at cocktail parties….
There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a cat in the depths of an ether binge.
Kitten sleep is an awesome time to mess with them: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sarameg/2923524982/in/set-72157614818417812 He doesn’t sleep like that anymore, but sleeps in weirder positions, for sure…
How did you get so lucky to get a friendly kitty with so much personality? Mine are 7 now and still anti-social.
I just read the part again about the sex concussion.
You are my hero.
My cat used to do cute stuff like that… now she just sleeps a lot and looks at the kids like, “f&ck off kids, I’m napping”.
HST has obviously already found the liquor cabinet.
Kittens are their own kind of cute-crazy!
I love him. Love. Him.
Cutest sleepy guy.
He has a clear conscience.
Just finished Let’s Pretend This Never Happened which is how I found your blog. I LOVE it! Thank you so much for sharing all of your wonderful stories.
Just showed hubby and he said the closes thing I’m going to get to a new kitty is Labiaplasty
Holllleeeeee bendy comfy long legged cat who hides his eyeballs. Lurve.
Awesome. I love this! And Hunter.
Daawwwww. Kitten narcolepsy is always heartwarming.
He kind of looks like he fell asleep while practicing kitty-yoga.
I can just hear the rhythmic purring that accompanied. Jealous!
Does Victor know that you’re leaving 75% of the estate to the cats?
Oh my GOD that’s the cutest thing ever. So very sleepy.
The Mogwai, our fat cat, sleeps like she’s playing dead – on her back, all four paws sprawled out. My daughter, though, slept just like Hunter when she was a toddler.
There’s probably something not quite right about this family.
Bitch… I’m sleeping!
Looks like kitty yoga to me.
I SUPER-LIKE him.
Kitty appears to act like I do in the mornings. Sigh… Maybe Kitty and I should meet and exchange notes? 🙂
OMG he’s so adorable ! Way better than anything”stuffed” or taxidermied!!! (sp?, word even?!?!?) ;0)))
Looks just like me at 4AM this morning being woken by my own ‘Victor’.
Hunter S Thomcat – I feel your pain ….
Thanks for entertaining my dog. And getting dog snot on my laptop.
His meditative ability in the face of great external distraction is quite impressive.
Cats are ALWAYS comfortable. It’s, like, a paw of physics or something. I meant to type “law”, but the typo seemed fitting 🙂
Downward Dog Kitteh.
So I got one to add to the list of things you don’t talk about at dinner parties… How your hampsters teeth grew into it’s eyeballs… yeah, there’s no way outa that one…
yes, I “like” dogs, but I am sooooo a cat person. this vid is a WIN for everyone
I have a survival instinct that has me hitting the ceiling at the slightest touch. I can’t even imagine being that relaxed! =S
I had no idea he was into yoga! A TSH is a well rounded kitten! Can’t wait for his book.
Oh I want to be able to sleep that soundly!
So THAT’s a cat nap. I always wondered…
My husband and I travel a lot so we really don’t want the added responsibilities of pets so I am enjoying all your pictures of your cats. Enjoy them!
As my husband and I always say, “F%&*ing cats.” I wish I wasn’t allergic, because I want to watch kitty silliness all day in my house.
I’ve seen our cat Pukey do that. Clearly cats are mentally ill.
Well you’ve actually done it – I am getting kittens! I’m turning 30 soon & I have always wanted kittens & I realised they are my red dress. Except i won’t wear them. Except maybe on my shoulder. By the way, I think my husband wants a word with you about having the whole flat turned upside-down for “kitten proofing”.
I could eat him with a spork, he’s so danged cute. I wish there was some star trekkie thing that you could zap them with and keep them kittenish forever. I loves him!!!!!
He’s so cute. And also weird. But mostly cute.
Lots of babies sleep like that, with their butts in the air. LOL
maybe his front end is supertired, but his back end is ready to party.
He is so cute!
That’s cute but I’m allergic to cats. 🙁
This kitty is totally true to his name.
Judging by his lumpiness — as in the concept of being a lump — we suspect HST has been into the pharmaceuticals.
So just keep him away from machetes.
And watch your back.
Be aware: cuteness kills.
He’s a long-leggedy little cuss, isn’t he?!
AWWWW! So cute I’m in a sugar coma.
OMG Jenny! You could have a matching set!!

Ikea Cat is missing some screws….
Holy crap that is ridiculously cute!! Makes me want to leave work right now and pet my two kitties.
Awww Hunter is so adorable lol he’s committed to staying in that position. At least he has loads of personality that’s a plus!
I thought only bulldogs slept standing up!
We all feel that way sometimes, right?
That is adorable cute!! I love when he puts his paws back over his face!
