20 Adorable Kitty Photos

Yesterday, I wrote about the Kitty Convict Project that is attempting to bring more lost cats home. More than 95% of lost cats never return home to their owners.

Today I wanted to post something a little more light hearted before I head off to work. And what could be more light hearted than a collection of cute kitties?

Caught in the Act

This cute kitten got caught on film licking its adorable little paw. The pink tongue turned out vivid and soft, but the eyes are what make this so classic cute.

Christmas Spirit

Isn’t this always how it goes. No less than an hour after you have your Christmas tree up and your adorable little friend has taken up position, nesting in the secret heart of your festive joy!

Hi, How Are You Doing?

One thing we love about our little furry friends is there fun and often silly personalities. This little kitty is at home playing on your sofa.

Designated Driver

I don’t know about you but I think that it is safe to say we need to pick another designated drive. This adorable little kitten fits perfectly into a wine glass.

Nap Time

Sometimes I think that I would enjoy being a cat, doing what I want, sleeping all day, and of course those intense snuggles that they seem to get when they want them.

Fur Ball

Cleanliness is also an important part of a cat’s life. This little kitten is perfecting its skill early on, and I have to admit that it is priceless.

Not all cats are as concerned with cleanliness, this cute kitten got a face full of milk. It looks like somebody needs to perfect their drinking skills.

Kitty Burrito

This cute kitten makes an absolutely adorable burrito. I get the feeling it isn’t quite sure if we can see it or not. In any event it thinks it is being rather sneaky hiding in the blanket!

Crash Time

This cute kitten is giving us all a lesson in what it means to be a cute kitten.

Sad Times

We hope that this kitten really doesn’t look as sad as it appears. If it did it would also make you want to cry. Cheer up, you are in good hands!

Nursing the Sick

There is a sweet story that goes with this photo. The black cat you see in the photo comforts and nurses the other animals that come into the vet. This gallery is definitely one to check out.

Mom-ma Duck

This cat has adopted a set of ducks. Another beautiful story, and a really nice gallery.

Deck the Halls

What did we say before. Here is another great shot of a cat climbing through the bows of holly. Though I am not sure if the tree can withstand a kitty of this magnitude.

The Kitty Convict Project

There are 7 million pets reported lost here in the US. And that is each and every year! Out of those pets 26% of the lost dogs are returned home. However, for cats that figure is less than 5%, that is a low, staggering number. Only 4 out of a hundred kitties are able to return home to their families. But there is a project that intends to change that. I have uploaded an info graphic for you to get a better idea of what the Kitty Convict Project is all about.

The Kitty Convict Project Info Graphic Kitty Convicts

If you’re like me though, and do much of your web browsing on your iPhone you might not be able to read everything, for that reason I have created a condensed transcript of the fine points.

The Kitty Convict Project is from the creators of Exploding Kittens. Don’t let the name fool you, they have a lot of love for those lovable little fur balls.

Why Are More Lost Dogs Found Than Cats?

For those of you asking why more cats stay missing, here are a couple of answers for you to think about:

  1. Dogs wear more ID collars than cats
  2. Cats have a natural tendency to hide
  3. People don’t immediately assume a cat is lost when they see it walking around the neighborhood

How can we raise the number of lost cats that get found?

Ways to Improve These Figures

The Kitty Convict Project has an interesting idea that is both easy to implement. It is more of a standard than a solution. Which if implemented over a longer period of time could in fact bring the number of escaped cats back into custody. And as you might have guessed the idea comes from escaped convicts.

  • Dress your cat in orange: a collar, scarf or other orange article of clothing. Just make sure that it is orange. The initiative attempts to set a standard for indoor cats that have gotten outside. The orange color is the symbol.
  • Make sure your indoor cats has an ID tag. This is probably more important than the bright orange marker right now. Since most people don’t realize the importance of the color yet the ID is a way for them to help your cat find its home.

So remember if you see a cat running wild with an orange collar it has broken out and it is your duty to bring it home.

If you are a cat owner put an end to cat nudity, give your kitty an orange collar and an ID, because cats are part ninja and they will disappear when you least expect it.

For anyone who is reading this please, if you love cats, like cats or find them mildly cute spread the word about the Kitty Convict Project.
