He’s Not Really Helping Either


Unless you count the cat hair on the dishes…. (Kitten, one half of the infamous Kitten and Little.)

    :sun: Oh My Kitten sure is growing!! :sun:
    My Wolfie cat likes to hang out in my lazy susan cabinet.He gets locked in there all the time. lol :sun:

  2. Darlene in North Georgia says:

    I don’t have a dishwasher, so I don’t have a kitten in it. Does a puppy on the laundry pile (the CLEAN pile) count?

  3. Susan D. says:

    He sure looks relaxed! I love orange cats.

  4. Berta says:

    The only kitchen “staff” I ever had was my black Lab, Oscar. He specialized in disposal and floor polishing. He died last year, almost 15 yrs. old. Still feels odd not to have him in the kitchen, especially on holidays. And now I have something called “scraps” to deal with! (RIP, old buddy.)

    • Deena says:

      I always thought I was the ‘staff’ and my old beagle-lab dog, Cricket, was the gentry. I’m sure I’ll be looking down for those eyes & wagging tail this Thanksgiving, too. However, I’m thankful for every 15 of the years she was with us. I might just put a plate on the floor in her honor…

  5. Hannah says:

    My cat Tater thinks he helps with the dishes too! ๐Ÿ˜€

    My cat Songa does the same thing. He comes running from wherever he’s at and jumps on the dishwasher door. I swear, he really is convinced he’s helping.I would love to post the picture on here, but I don’t know how. His other favorite place is the bread box.If I take bread out of it and don’t shut it up immediately, he jumps in it, licks himself thoroughly, and curls up for a catnap.

  7. Chic says:

    LOL this is so cute! We don’t have a cat in the house but I’ve caught my little female Shih Tzu Chelsea up on the dishwasher door licking the plates..the little sneak!! :happypuppy: :hungry2:

  8. mmn0725 says:

    Our puppy thinks she’s part of our staff. She believes her job is to lick the dirty dishes as they are loaded in the dishwasher.

  9. Linda in New Mexico says:

    My orange manx, Sunny Bunny Boo boo head, who look alot like Kitten only tailless, does the same thing. Loves the dryer too so we all are very careful not to leave that door open very long. We also find him in the refrigerator, closets, etc. Crazy cat, but that is redundant. ๐Ÿ™‚ Must me something about doors with him.

  10. Leah says:

    That’s a pretty cat! My cats are everywhere except the kitchen counters.Probably too much stuff there!

  11. Miss Becky says:

    oh, my little darlin’ is getting so big! My cat Daisey (an orange tabby also) is in love with Kitten. She has had many beaus before this but none as charming as Kitten. They would make beautiful babies together… :heart:

  12. Sharon Gosney says:

    My cats just dirty dishes….maybe they can take lessons from kitten.

  13. brenda harmon says:

    My friend has a cat and my 4 yr old is enamored with him. We may get him a kitten for Christmas. It would be nice to have a cat again. We have to be careful where we live there are a lot of coyotes. I would be heartbroken if a kitten/cat became someones lunch.

  14. wheezay says:

    So cute !! :snoopy:

  15. Claudia says:

    He’s looking quite comfortable!

  16. Patty says:

    Oh my gosh, Kitten has gotten so big! ๐Ÿ™‚ I wonder what it is about cats and dishwashers. I think my cats lay in wait for the moment I open mine.

  17. cake says:

    I just love unique names for pets! Down thru the years we have had; Jontue, China, Wilson, Crow, Victor, Moby, Kato & Banks. That was the cats. Dogs named, Driver, Champ, Kes, Chief & Doc. But my all time favorite from my grandmother, her Persian, Thomas Jefferson Hexagon Brown!

  18. Nancy in Iowa says:

    Kitten is just doing his job as the reining regal person in the kitchen! My cat, Emma, has to jump into any open cupboard, check out every open door, etc. And she has to open dresser drawers and help remove things.

  19. Mary Olson says:

    I hope this was before you washed the dishes. I have a problem with my dog licking the dishes as I load them.

  20. dancingfatcat says:

    Ok, I though my cats were the only ones to do this! And yes that does look like my cat Mookie, laying there ๐Ÿ™‚ Could be my kitchen!!

  21. debbie says:

    I do love an orange kitty. My Riley hops on the counter in front of the kitchen sink and asks for a drink from the faucet by giving me a kiss every morning. If he’s not there waiting for me when I come down for coffee, I worry and have to go hunt for him to be sure he’s okay. Husband banned this water ritual when I forgot that I had the plug in the sink and flooded the kitchen floor, but he doesn’t get up as early as Riley and I.

  22. Michele says:

    What a perfect bed. I used to have an orange can named Butterscotch. :hole:

  23. Runningtrails says:

    He sure has grown!
    I recently had my dog put down. He was 15. His name was Barnard Edward Gallant (B.E.G.) We called him Beggety and he was.

    I miss having a dog in the house too. He used to keep the floor spotless. I never had to worry about cleaning up spilled food or drinks. It feels kind of odd now, when I drop a little food on the floor and have to pick it up.

    I have found a dog that I want. A female half pyranees and half German shepherd. I would love that combination but she’s $300 and I just don’t have it right now. I’m thinking about contacting them and asking if they would consider trading her for a painting. I once got two shitzu puppies in exchange for two paintings from a breeder. They were adorable, but I sold them to a wonderful person. I worked full time and couldn’t take care of a puppy but I work at home now and want one. I will get a kitten with the puppy, too.

  24. Kathy says:

    Thank goodness I’m not the only one who has dishwasher loving cats…OK, mine have baskets at counter level to supervise my work. I guess they are in Management and I am Staff.

    I voted from work and from home today! Yay! Thanks for all of the Thanksgiving recipes and inspiration – I am going to make cinammon rolls and braided apple bread because the kids are begging for it!!!

  25. SuseM says:

    My pug, Izzy, is our pre-wash cycle for our dishwasher!!!! Thank goodness the dishwasher disinfects the dishes!!1 :yes:

  26. Amy says:

    Well, he is part of the ‘staff’ ya know. Besides, pet hair is a condiment.
