The Cat’s Pajamas - Photos

“We just got married, and had no kids or pets yet… just this cat skeleton, “Bones”. We decided to take him with us to our first family portrait. He was later sold on ebay to a theater company who used him as a prop in a play.”

    It was their ivory wedding anniversary,& that was as close as he could get…..but, he DID remember.

  2. Herph says:

    Nice and bony.

  3. Professor Frink says:

    Courtney, give us some context please… also, tell the women up above who doubt the science geek ever attracts the nice woman a thing or two.

  4. PerkyTurkey says:

    What I find to be most disturbing about this picture is that the cat’s front legs are on BACKWARDS.

  5. lizzie says:

    And I ask “Why?”

  6. Jackie says:

    Maybe she helped him win the science fair.

  7. Denise says:

    This is just more proof for dog lovers that cat people are indeed insane.

  8. Don says:

    Another silly fight over the litter box. Things were said that just couldn’t be taken back. He was angry and before they knew it he had left in the car. Knowing how he was behind the wheel they immediatly called the police. But then came the 2am knock at the door. The worst was realized…Toonces had driven off his last cliff.

  9. Lisa says:

    Ok–I seriously hope the people who posted this write in with the story behind it. Maybe the guy won a science fair???

  10. Brian says:

    Cat all posed on that blue surfboard. And with no life jacket. Just wait. PETA is going to be climbing all over this one!

  11. Sarah says:

    To be fair, it’s hard as hell to articulate a skeleton, if this was perhaps a rare type of cat or something and these two are vet students or somesuch, it WOULD be something to smile about if they did it.

    • iLOLd says:

      And to be able to articulate the rare Elbow-crawling Tabby is even more so!

      And, has anyone said “photoshop” yet?

  12. Caroline says:

    Somebody is a science teacher! My older brother is like that. He always has a freezer full of dead insects and roadkill snakes and possums and such that he gets skeletons from to demonstrate to his class. I’d bet good money that this guy also takes care of orphan baby birds and raises honey bees. I don’t know how these guys find women to stand next to them and smile so big with a cat skeleton, but my brother found one, too.

  13. Nicki says:

    There is nothing inside the ribcage. What you are seeing are the cat’s shoulder blades (scapulae).

      Ha! (I was thinking vet student too. Maybe because one of my roommates was one and was the person in the study group that stored the embalmed cat they would use for labs. The cat was stored under our kitchen sink, wrapped in plastic and resting on a plywood plank. We called it “Formeldekitty”.)

  15. Charles says:

    Now Fluffy can be with us forever!

    I told you those Fancy Feast cans were too small.

    The vet told us Fluffy needed to go on a diet; I guess we got a bit carried away.

    We finally solved the shedding problem.

    It’s ok to let go, but for goodness sakes if you not put some clothes on the poor thing. She’s cold!

  18. sucktackular says:

    OH GOD my soul hurts

  19. Dogdancing says:

    Whew!!! glad to see it was subbed by Courtney, at least we know she isn’t mounted on the living room wall in his house of goulish trophys.

  20. Yolinda says:

    AAAAaaauuuggg!!!! O_o

    Aieee…. o_.

  21. LAWB says:

    Whoa – do adult women still put their hair in barrettes like that? I shudder to think of what happened to the cat…too many barrettes.

  22. jessica says:

    pretty sure the cat belonged to her. she is smiling like she won the arguement whether or not the cat would be photographed.

  23. Giovanni says:

    Why? Just… why?

  24. Michelle says:

    I sure hope the skeleton isn’t from a previous pet…..

    • iLOLd says:

      Nope, his previous fiancee’s pet.
      “I’m soooo sorry, but I left the window open and Mr. Fluffy-Wuffy…”

  25. beachcomber says:

    Dangit…Bootsey died RIGHT before they had their family portrait scheduled. Some pictures really do require a back-story. Wait…! What’s that hanging out of the ribcage…geez!

  28. durhay says:

    save the date!

  29. Just a little reminder of what happens to PEOPLE WHO LEAVE ME!

  30. Jan says:

    I am confused. :/

  31. carol says:

    That totally creeps me out. She’s so in love with her Mr. Munster Man though. CREEPY.

  32. DMF says:

    I hope they never have a baby – they couldn’t even remember to feed the cat.

  33. Samantha says:

    Wow……that’s disturbing……

  34. Jake says:

    Curators for the pet cemetery maybe?

  35. Leslie says:

    Seriously creepy.

  36. jabel says:


  37. Okay with this one… Seriously? That is just messed up! Is that real? I need a story.

  38. Gert says:

    Does that white bag inside the skeleton contain this cat’s ashes???

    • Sez Me says:

      I think it might be the cat’s shoulder blades. I could be wrong however they may be harder to recognize since they are so low.

  39. Maria says:

    Well. Now I’ve seen everything.

  40. Holly says:

    I am dying to know the story behind this!

  41. Wil says:

    The funny thing is they both look equally excited.

  42. Kristen says:

    I’m guessing based on the expressions on their faces, that the cat skeleton was entirely HER idea!

  43. Matthew says:

    There may be more than one way to skin a cat, but frankly, I see no other way to display it.

  44. DizzyEmili says:


  45. Paul Metzger says:

    Not TOO weird……

  46. Murray says:


  47. RHB says:

    I take it back — having googled images of “cat skeleton,” I now see that that is indeed what is seen here. Now the only thing more awkward than this pictures is the fact that I have to explain to my boss why I was googling “cat skeleton.”

  49. Pete says:

    well… this one got a really loud “WHAT?!” that made all my office mates turn.

    • CB says:

      No kidding, that was my initial reaction as well…..truly, I don’t know if I could think of any other word to say about this…..just “what..???”
