“Help. Me.”


  1. Sheri says:

    Awww, poor kitty.

  2. kacey says:

    poor Buttercup. She’s having a rough year ! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Mary says:

    Poor Buttercup. Help her.

  4. mary beth says:

    It took me a few seconds to figure out what was going on here. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Michelle says:

    OMG! And I thought I was the only one with insane animals and children. Help the poor kitty Suzanne. LOL

    I have a new stealth kitty in my house who is currently terrorizing my dogs. She’s 9 weeks old and I swear my poor dogs have gone into hiding. They are so afraid of stealth kitty!

  6. Estella Kissell says:

    My cats disappear when ANYONE comes to our house—they’ve learned their lesson.:!:

  7. Toni Anderson says:

    That’s one big cat:cool:

  8. Mary Stella says:

    See, I figure the cat’s looking at you and saying, “You have two seconds to get this kid to let me go, or I’m shredding her like Ollie North’s secret documents.”


  9. Melissa says:

    :thumbsdown: You can break a cat’s arms holding it that way!!

  10. Jill says:

    Oh, no. Poor kitty!!

  11. Suzanne says:

    He’s okay! I saved him! :mrgreen:

  12. Robyn says:

    ‘Look how big I am’ says the kitty. Or is it ‘in 3 I’m going to be doing a somersault
    and you won’t see me for the rest of the day’; 1, 2,…

  13. Caro says:


    I now have to go clean my screen because I was drinking some water when I saw that picture.

  14. Joely says:

    You might have saved him, but who named the poor guy “Buttercup” anyway??? :wigglebrow:

  15. Nicole says:


    Yeah..he looks a little tough to be a “Buttercup”.

  16. Kelly says:

    I think Suzanne named the cat Buttercup. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. Melissa Marsh says:

    What a cute kitty! Like the name Buttercup, too.

  18. Suzanne says:

    He’s one of the Powerpuff Girls–Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. (What? You all don’t watch this fabulous cartoon? YOU DON’T HAVE THE BOARD GAME??) We have a female dog named Blossom, and we had a female cat at the time named Bubbles. Unfortunately, Buttercup is a boy–but, you know, that didn’t stop us from filling out our Powerpuff Girl roster. We needed a Buttercup. He got stuck with it.

    I think it’s why he’s perpetually cranky. Being a big male cat named after a Powerpuff Girl will do that to a guy. :wall:

  19. Emma S says:

    Does she dress him up in doll clothes and make him ride around in a baby stroller, too?

    What? Of course I never didi that. :rolleyes:

  20. Danica says:

    That cat is going for sainthood isn’t he?

  21. MartyK says:

    Hey–that cat’s got a little girl coming out of it! ๐Ÿ˜†

  22. Juanita Stender says:

    Poor cat. Times like these are why I had to choose between cats or kids? The cats won. Just kidding!:rotfl:

  23. Anna Lucia says:

    For a moment I though he was hung up on a coat hook…. :rotfl:

  24. Crystal* says:

    What? You couldn’t name him Professor? Or Mojo Jojo? *snickering*
    Buttercup it is.

    I don’t think kids ever get over the fact that all the animals are simply alive toys. My kids are using our latest arrival, Toby-the eight week old wonder, as a slingshot. The oldest wraps a hair wrap around him and then watches as he freaks out trying to get it off. Cheap entertainment, yes. :yes:
    But at least she’s not bothering me.

  25. Mechele Armstrong says:

    LOL the poor kitty. Glad you saved him. Great picture. And yeah a big boy kitty with a powderpuff girl name, might be a little bit cranky.

  26. Cheyenne McCray says:

    ::snort:: Too cute. My 9 year old has been doing that with our new puppy. Argh.

  27. Maureen says:

    Your picture brings back memories of our daughter and our cat together.

  28. Tori says:

    :rotfl: Poor Buttercup!

  29. Lis says:

    Poor Buttercup!
    Looks like he’s being robbed lol

  30. Jordan says:

    I think that statement probably applies to ALL pets. :rotfl:

  31. Gina says:

    I tend to keep children away from my cats. not having any living here makes it easier. when I got my first cat, and he was a kitten, I had an instance where I walked in and saw a little boy holding my cat up by the end of his leash. My cat was looking at me like “HELP … AIR!” After that experience, I tend to keep all kids away.

  32. Lindsay says:

    Love the white boots on his feet. And please tell B. he’s a good hero to indulge your daughter and be such a good sport!

  33. ruby55 says:

    Poor “puddy”!:sad:

  34. Marcy says:

    “She thinks pigs can fly? Well, wait until she gets a load of me when I go airborn off this kid’s head!”

    *meowwwwwww* ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  35. Saundra M says:

    Marcy..didn’t you read yesterdays blog? Pigs CAN fly!! LOL…
    poor Buttercup! :no:

  36. TeresaH says:

    But he’s having so much fun….:rotfl:

  37. Marcy says:

    Yes, I read it. LOL This was Buttercup’s response. :thumbsup:
