Still Life with Kitten

“Oh, Jenny – before you head back to Chicago, look in the laundry room. I picked something up for you at a rummage sale.”
“Ohmigod! What the hell is that?”
“Isn’t it awful?”
“It’s seriously the creepiest thing I’ve ever seen!”
“Do you want it?”
“Of course.”

Silly kitten. Where are you going?
IMG_3547 a
Hey! Get down off of there! I’m not kidding!

Okay, now what are you doing?

Come on. Take that banana off your head and let me take some normal pictures, will you?

Hey Kodo. Meet your new buddy.

Don’t worry, I wiped him off with antibacterial soap.

    Not quite as scary as Giant Rabbit Head, but still enough to haunt me for weeks to come…

  2. Fiorello LaGuardia Says:

    Do you have a name for it yet? It is absolutely the most beautiful cat I’ve ever seen.

  3. vahid Says:

    Urr, that is pretty disturbing. Kind of like what you’d think a cat from the Village of the Damned would look like. Still, for 50 cents…

  4. Average Jane Says:

    There must be a LOLcat series in there somewhere…

  5. mainja Says:

    i love you so much.

    dave2: just wait until i do the rabbit/kitten photo shoot. i’ll give you advance warning.
    fiorello: i’ve been calling him pickles. he seems to respond to it.
    average jane: im in ur bowl, stompin ur fruitz!
    mainja: hee hee. ::blush::

  7. teahouseblossom Says:

    Egads…for once, I’m totally speechless.

  8. serap Says:

    Kodo is a very brave kitty. What is the message you are trying to send out Jen? Cheap things are creepy?!

  9. Michelle Says:

    I’m guessing if you were to show a vid of the 1st meeting ‘twixt Rabbit and Cat where Rabbit stalks and eats Cat (which I’m sure will happen) w/the appro Jaws music Dave will probably up ‘n move to another country that doesn’t actually touch this one.

  10. jenny Says:

    thb: wow! i hope there’s no permanent damage!
    serap: no, the message i’m trying to send out is that a $0.50 gift can entertain me for hours…
    michelle: i think that would put dave into a vegetative state, where he just hugged his knees and rocked back and forth all day long.

  11. You can call me, 'Sir' Says:

    Between the rabbit head and the kitten, you are gradually turning into the Queen of SlightlyCreepyVille.

    You never disappoint.

  14. sizzle Says:

    those pictures are hilarious.

  15. churlita Says:

    That kitten thing is scarier than a clown.

  16. Roy Says:

    I wonder if there was an old, used ball pean hammer at that rummage sale.

  17. jenny Says:

    sir: oh, we haven’t even scratched the surface yet. :)
    rhonda: well, i think a few kitten/rabbit haters would disagree (ahem… dave), but you have my sincerest thanks!
    sizzle: thanks! i was trying so hard to get all three cats in one photo, but it wasn’t meant to be. yet…
    churlita: what if i wore the rabbit head, and a clown suit, and held the kitten? the internet would ‘splode!
    roy: if you are asking because a) you really need an old ball pean hammer, i’ll ask my mom to keep her eyes peeled. but if you’re implying that b) you would like to smash this kitten with said hammer, then you’re out of luck. it may look ceramic – but it’s made of rubber. WITH DOLLS EYES THAT BLINK!!! everyone should be grateful that i spared them the photos where the one eye is half closed and the other one wide open. ::shivers::

  18. Tracy Lynn Says:

    That thing is evil, and its head spins, and I am JEALOUS.

  19. Anonymous Says:

    Dear Jenny,
    Does its head really turn?

  20. Cheryl Says:

    I think Kodo and Podo’s new friend needs a name. I vote for Frodo, since he has a hobbit-y look about him.

  21. claire Says:

    Excellent! I love your picture books.
    It’s so weird cuz I feel like Pickles is smaller than he is. I guess that’s my brain’s way of blocking out the creepy factor.

  22. jenny Says:

    tracy lynn: hey! maybe i should name this cat Kaply? Pickles Kaply, the bitter hellcat!
    vivian: all the way around, just like the exorcist!
    cheryl: funny you mention it, because i was actually thinking that it’s about time kodo and podo get new names. i might have to post another opinion poll.
    claire: i just measured him, and he’s 9″ tall x 10″ long x 4″ wide. that’s 360 cubic inches of pure evil.

  23. dee-dee Says:

    so, when i cat sit for you next week do i have to watch pickles as well? can’t you take him on your business trip … what if it’s like Chucky and pickles gets all crazy on podo, kodo and me!!!

  24. Robin Says:


  25. Roy Says:

    One eye is not blinking. One eye is winking. Must destroy.

  26. diane Says:

    Can’t breathe. Laughing. Too hard. :)

  27. jenny Says:

    dee: don’t worry, i’ll make sure pickles is hiding somewhere when you stay over. somewhere you’ll NEVER EXPECT!
    robin: thanks! my other cats didn’t totally agree…
    roy: you are under its spell!
    diane: just slow down. calm, calm. deep breath aaaaand exhale.
