  1. Not sure if anyone mentioned this or not…..but the video is “private”.

  2. He is too cute! Cuteness squared even. He needs a kitty night mask. hahaha

  3. 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.

  4. Whew, I sure am glad this wasn’t set to private. That would be a horrible tease! Thank you, Jenny!

  5. Weirdly enough…this is how I sleep. Which is why I think Hunter S. Tomcat and I would be great friends.


    The most wunnerful thing about kittens, is kittens are wunnerful things.

  7. You’re a brave soul. If I tried that with my evil kitty, I would come back with a stump for a hand.

  8. Unemployment has given me an unfortunate case of insomnia, so I’ll have whatever he had, times two. 😀

  9. He’s actually multi-tasking. Doing yoga and sleeping takes a lot of concentration.

  10. I wants him! I wants to put him in my pockets and feed him cheeses and take him out to make me smile. 😀

  11. 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”.

  12. (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!

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. But Mooooooooommmmmmmmm! Just 5 more minutes! I was having that dream about the catnip.

  17. I loves Hunter! I miss having a kitten 🙁 Thanks for sharing Hunter’s adventures!

  18. I’ve actually slept that soundly, I was drunker than shit….does that count?

  19. 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!

  20. I am so in love with your cat I can hardly stand it. Makes me want an orange kitty of my own SO bad.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. The very talented Hunter S. Tomcat seems to be adept at doing yoga in his sleep. This would be a modified headstand (Salamba Sirsasana).

  25. How do you not just pick him up and go, “smoooooooochsmoochsmoochsmooch”. That’s what I’d hafta do.

  26. 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!

  27. 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.

  28. 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….

  29. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a cat in the depths of an ether binge.

  30. How did you get so lucky to get a friendly kitty with so much personality? Mine are 7 now and still anti-social.

  31. 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”.

  32. Hi Jenny,
    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.

  33. 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.

  34. OMG he’s so adorable ! Way better than anything”stuffed” or taxidermied!!! (sp?, word even?!?!?) ;0)))

  35. Looks just like me at 4AM this morning being woken by my own ‘Victor’.

    Hunter S Thomcat – I feel your pain ….

  36. Cats are ALWAYS comfortable. It’s, like, a paw of physics or something. I meant to type “law”, but the typo seemed fitting 🙂

  37. 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…

  38. yes, I “like” dogs, but I am sooooo a cat person. this vid is a WIN for everyone

  39. I have a survival instinct that has me hitting the ceiling at the slightest touch. I can’t even imagine being that relaxed! =S

  40. 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!

  41. 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.

  42. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. 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”.

  44. 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!!!!!

  45. Lots of babies sleep like that, with their butts in the air. LOL

  46. 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.

  47. Holy crap that is ridiculously cute!! Makes me want to leave work right now and pet my two kitties.

  48. 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!
