D'awwwwwww.

What the hell was that whirring sound? I felt like I was back in grade school watching a filmstrrip.

I've got to admit, 2017 made me think this was a sand in the vagina joke.

Must. Has. Sand. Kitten. D'awwwwww.

And the great thing is, if you have one as a pet, and it gets frightened, it'll be back soon in greater numbers.

They have a very strange biology.

I don't care what PETA thinks we should call them, they're still Shai-Hulud to me and they'll kill you.

Saying an animal is adorable is the same as 'would not eat unless really hungry'.

The problem with cute kittens is that they grow up into ugly smelly murderous cats.

How long before jaded rich Gulf Arab young men start buying them for hundreds of thousands of dollars and then riding their cars in sand dunes with the cats on the dashboard?

And they are always jumpin' around all nimbly-bimbly from tree to tree in a single file to hide their numbers.

Afraid of getting killed by a big cat? Just toss a box in front of them, and their harmless.

I've seen exactly one kitten that was less than cute. So odd looking she made the front desk staff at the Vet take pause.
She's grown into the smartest feline we've ever cared for. Dilute tortie.

Interesting read, subby - good on the find and tracking collar, science people.

Are they sure they're not a species of domestic cat that got lost in the wild?  They look like house cats.

I don't know how, but he takes 40 naps a day, each in a different spot.  And he loves shoes.  I mean, LOVES shoes.

Looks like the link got the hug of death. Here's the video on YouTube:

Meanwhile, the researchers put up a statement.

About our sand kittens video

Count on humans to politicize footage of wild sandcat kittens.

I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating, and it gets everywhere. Not like sand kittens. Sand kittens are soft and smooth.

Probably attracted to any odor in there, because it smells like his human. My sister's cat would do the same thing to her boyfriend's smelly work shirts.

I mean, other humans politicized the video, not the scientists.

We have in no way envisaged that our video and work would to be used for political purposes. We are an international team of scientists specialised in wild cats and we are trying to lift the unknown lives of the beautiful and rarely seen sand cats (Felis margarita) out of the shadows. We will not take any position on the human geopolitical perspectives and hope that our work will help the species, whose natural range goes beyond civilisations, religions and frontiers, from the Sahara to South West Asia,

Now that's true love. One of my kittens pees on my wife sometimes, and that's how we know the kid loves my wife the best.
 
2017-10-05 09:54:10 AM  
Oh they're cute and everything, but it's 2017, can we not genetically engineer kittens to have green fur with yellow stripes?  I want my BattleKitten!

and the kitten in the picture looks like it got caught right in the middle of burying a body or 30.
