I am a lame person. Here's what I did tonight. I bought a ringtone for my phone that sounds like a kitten meowing. I played it many times because it confused my cats a whole bunch. Squeak is currently sitting next to me, meowing because she can't figure where the kitten is, even though I stopped playing the ringtone like 15 minutes ago.




Squeak is the little tabby, and Nikki is the big fluffy one. My dog Elroy (the big gray butt) is also confused by the noise, but much less bothered than the cats.

  1. You got me beat. I am watching a movie from the 80's that has a couch on it same as the one I have now. #needsnewfurnature
    I will take your cat-ringtone anyday. :)

  2. Ha! Kya was sitting in her bed when I played the video and she jumped up and ran to the computer and tried to find the kitten. Now she's running around the house barking her head off trying to find a cat. This is hilarious. I think I like meowing ringtones.

  3. Ha! My two pound pups just bolted awake from a sound sleep and went noses to floor in search of the kitties!

  5. I have a five week old kitten and my mum thought he was outside meowing! Just as confused as your cats...

  6. When I played the video, my cats both came over to investigate. My kitty Sansa was meowing as if to say, "Hey, where's the kitty?"

  7. My cat jumped up next to me and started nosing about my computer to see what was up. Now she won't leave the area!

  10. I once bought a ringtone of Peter Griffin laughing. When it went off in the middle of a silent store, I experienced no end of inward glee. PS Your cats are awesome!

  11. LOL. We had a doorbell at our old house, but not our new one, so our dogs got used to the idea that when they hear a doorbell noise, someone new is about to enter the room, even though we didn't have a doorbell anymore. So I used to crack up when a doorbell would ring on television while I was in the same room as the dogs and they'd charge towards the door. Sometimes I'd play the noise for them on youtube, too.

    They learned better after while, but it was pretty funny while it lasted.

  12. That sounds like a very entertaining evening. Plus, you probably got kitty kuddles without having to bribe them.

  14. I love this! Thanks for sharing and giving me a laugh on a miserably hot summer afternoon...

    I enjoy doing this with my three large dogs.. their butts put your grey guy's butt to shame, actually.. with a barking iphone app. They are FAR worse in terms of behavior when I do that than your furry friends are in this video.

    I sometimes like to imagine what it would be like to:

    1) Get a lot of people and pets together
    2) Lock the door and turn on a night vision camera
    3) Shut off the lights
    4) Set off a bunch of noise-making apps
    5) Unleash a bunch of laser pointers

    I think the only word for it would be PANDEMONIUM!

  15. Those poor, confused cats. I wish I still had a cat to do this sort of stuff to. Good times.

  16. OMG I was just passing through here and I played your video. My pomeranians went nuts. Then my husband came running out of the bathroom in a towel and started yelling at me for bringing a kitten in the house. ROFL.

  17. I love cats! Always have. My wife is severely allergic to them so I had to give away my last cat. I guess that means I love her more! I once had a trick trained cat that I trained myself. Nathaniel was great.
