I'd never heard of that kind of cat. Really cute!

This is a bit of an advertisement so you can Unapprove or Disapprove if need be, but we are longtime zefans and cat fans too, so we wanted to share this:

I think I'm getting a cavity.

Most mutations and deformities are found *in nature*.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munchkin_(cat)

(From Ze: many breeds of dogs and cats came from a long and continual selection of certain traits, in this case the mutation was naturally occurring. i.e. there was no "wild pug"...)

My neighbors have a wild pug.

Posted by: Charlie at November 21, 2008 3:37 PM

i like the idea of a wild pug though.

excellent. "watch out for that pack of wild dogs jimmy."

"oh no. not the yippers."

"put yer ear plugs in place. they're comin' by barkin' and peein'."

"no! not the barking and peeing."

don't underestimate the pug, one saved the life or royalty by yipping at the assailant.

pugs gone wild. ah. the debate rages on...

i'll stop now. clearly i had too much to drink with dinner.

Official kitten of the Lollipop Guild!

At that first wide shot with it up against the wall, I thought I was gonna die from the cuteness.

Then at the end, when it crouched to pounce, I knew I was gonna die.

When it took off, I keeled over, right in my office chair.

Thanks, ze. At least I died happy.

Oh gawd, even if it unleashed a normal kitten's reign of terror, I would never be able to reprimand it.. D'awwwwwww

I think that kitten just gave me diabetes.

Posted by: Castillo at November 21, 2008 5:29 PM

That has to be the cutest freaking video I've ever since.

I think you may have found sweetness manifest.

Can't . . . look . . . away . . .

Posted by: Cerebelle at November 21, 2008 7:09 PM

that's adorable!!

Posted by: Rach at November 21, 2008 10:24 PM

It's like the dachshund of felines!

My foot needs amputation

Posted by: Jason Crovisier at November 22, 2008 2:55 PM

I wonder how the League of Awesomeness would feel about all this mushy cat talk?

(From Ze: Who the hell do you think sent me the link?)

Gotta love a head splodin cute mutant kitty.

It's in the Bible.

Posted by: boo at November 22, 2008 3:49 PM

OMG, a basset cat. Swearz to god, that kitty walks just like my old basset hound used to.

Posted by: steph at November 22, 2008 9:02 PM

This is an abomination, a blashpheme of nature. There is no such "Natural" breed of cat (dog ) or other domestic pet! This is the outcome of someone calling themselves a breeder when in fact they made a terrible mistake!!!!!!! Breeding is a science, it's not just allowing two creatures to have sex. People need to be responsible for their actions not applauded.
These are my feelings as a pet care professional I would not promote it or be part of it.

(From Ze: Nope - not a breeder. The first one was found under a trailer in Louisiana :: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munchkin_(cat)

Finally, a cat that *can't* jump up on the kitchen counters!

Posted by: Average Jane at November 23, 2008 8:28 AM

More like the wheelbarrow of felines! :) Seems like the back legs are normal and the front legs are teensy. In any case, that is some brain-melting cuteness right there!

Posted by: WriterLor at November 23, 2008 1:06 PM

I WANT TO HUG IT!!!

Posted by: Liz Tyler at November 23, 2008 2:59 PM

Ingrid,
Keep drinking with dinner. You're hysterical!

Posted by: Nicole at November 23, 2008 5:21 PM

My friend Jason has a "midget cat", as he calls it! It's two years old and the size of a coffee cup. Adorable. I was tempted to take it home with me, but it was just *slightly* too big for my pocket. :)

Posted by: Lesley at November 23, 2008 7:56 PM

That's the ugliest creature I've ever seen.

Posted by: Maine Coon Cat at November 23, 2008 8:46 PM

hey ze...seeing how its getting close to the beginning of 2009...what do you think about doing another show???? that would be absolutely fantastic....just a thought.

Posted by: Kate at November 24, 2008 1:59 PM

That was amazing, and got me thinking.

Petsmart should consider investing in a new brand of advertising..

I'd have a cat in like three weeks if i had to see this every time House's newest patient has a complication.

These are Scottish Folds.

Posted by: Robert at December 1, 2008 1:44 PM

the normal size kitten and the "munchkin" look too similar in color to not be from the same litter.

Posted by: fopah at December 2, 2008 12:43 AM

its like a cat chihuahua

Posted by: Adam Levy at December 3, 2008 3:29 AM

Nothing cuter than a mutant kitten playing with electrical wires.

Amazing they found a non *in nature* kitten with the same exact markings. Any takers on an over/under for when these cat's aren't considered "natural" any more?

I'll set the line at 1 year.

Wow. I sound like such a dick.
