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.”

    What’s awkward. Dead cats are good luck right? πŸ˜‰ This is possibly the most odd one I have seen yet. Seriously.

  2. AndrewT says:

    Does anyone else think she looks kinda like a cat? Maybe there’s a reincarnation thing going on here …

  3. Bilge says:

    He likes bones , she likes bones

  4. Reesie says:

    Help me here…….are those horns sprouting out of her head?

    Thanksgiving twist?

    Jan was grateful that Gomer’s moose skeleton didn’t fit in the car…..

  8. James says:

    Would ya look at the looks on their faces! We know whose idea this shot was! “Cant believe she talked me into this” on his face. And “oh the joy of winning” on hers!

  9. Patti says:

    They decided to get the skeletons OUT of the closet!

  10. Steve says:

    You should see what he did to Grandma.

  11. bulldog says:

    We’ll show the world that we got rid of that pesky hairball problem.

  12. powermuffin says:

    You know what’s really scary? Underneath all that fur and muscle, cats look like dinosaurs. I’ve got my own little Jurassic Park going on over here. Pray that none of the cats go all Velociraptor on me.

  13. Stephanie Lambert says:

    Hey, it’s Cat Stanley!!!

    The smith’s show off their first dinner together. Later doug remarked “I can’t believe i ate the whole thing.

  16. iLOLd says:

    I’m hearing Jackson Browne in my head:
    “And the mating cries of… Taxidermists in Love!!!”
    “Ooooh, Shalala!”

  17. Silk says:

    The cat WAS alive when they first posed for the photo. Just saying…

  18. Cheryl says:

    …And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon….

  19. maria says:

    people need not be so judgmental. junior was stillborn, everyone grieves differently.

  20. BJ says:

    I don’t think that’s a cat. Look at the back legs. Three joints?

  21. Lil says:

    This what happens to your cat when you “drop it off at a friendly farm.”

  22. melissy says:

    I’d better not let my husband see this. It’s his idea of the perfect cat. Then i’d end up with my own awkward family photo πŸ™‚

  23. Teresa says:

    I not only want to know the back story……I want to know where their life went from there.

  24. Uncuw Biww says:

    and the cat came back….NOT!

  25. Laura says:

    Her: “Look at our Mr. Tiddles! He was my first every kitty kitty yes he was! I just wuvs him sooo much!”

    Him: “For the love of god, help me…”

  26. April says:

    I’m sorry…why??!?! There should be a requirement that each picture NEEDS the backstory in order to be submitted!!

  27. TwistedSista says:

    Fluffy ain’t so fluffy no more!

  28. Gavin Veasey says:

    At least he took the rotting cat carcass off the bones.

  29. Aphrica says:

    the human race never ceases to … amaze and shock me.
    this is beyond weird.

  30. TampaBayLady says:

    “When you can’t afford an engagement ring, give her a cat skeleton ….”

  31. Noodella says:

    I really, really want to know the story behind this one.

  32. Anne says:

    Afraid of hurting her feelings, Josh ate every morsel of the first dinner that Courtney cooked for him.

  33. Cheryl says:

    It looks like she is extremely pleased *he* has to hold the dead cat. He looks pretty creeped out at the whole idea.

    But really, what says “Young couple in love” like a skeleton?

  34. Lisa says:

    Oh my. That’s just…oh my.

  35. Ryan says:

    Are those… wings??

  36. Sidekick says:


  37. Stephanie says:

    Kind of like show and tell class picture , huh? Creepy.

  38. @ mamacrab:

    Nothing is wrong with you. I didn’t even see the cat skeleton.

  39. HeatherW says:

    “…It mounts the skeleton on to a board and takes pictures with it. It does this whenever it’s asked….”

  40. DeannieDorko says:

    He said, “But Jenny, baby, I love you so much and it’s natural for a man and a woman to express their love for each other by taking it to the next level” and I was all like, “Henry, you know I am a dog person and hate that cat of yours. You’re not even getting to second base unless you do something about Mr. Mittens”.

  41. Patricia says:

    Funniest thing about this photo is that there’s a kitty litter ad on this page! Ha! BTW, is that really a cat? Structured to be on it’s elbows in a very unnatural position?

    • Jewels says:

      It’s a rabbit skeleton not a cat…look at the head it doesn’t have carniverous teeth like a cat and rabbits have legs like that for jumping.

  42. Mamacrab says:

    The skeleton looks like it is about to go down-hill skiiing!!

  43. Mamacrab says:

    what is wrong with me that the thing I find most disturbing about this picture is the fact that the cat is slanted and not held at a proper horizontal line?

  44. Uncuw Biww says:

    couldn’t they just get their pet freeze dried when it died?

  45. Teresa says:

    A family picture with a dead cat…….this is beyond awkward

  46. melis says:

    um the dude that put this model together clearly didnt put the shoulder blades in the right spot. ha

  47. Nathan says:

    For the couple that think a pet rock is too cold.

  48. VetTechCatherine says:

    The “things” that seem to be hanging out of the cat’s chest area are the cat’s shoulderblades…in cats the shoulderblades are only held in place by muscle and not by bone like in dogs and people. That is why they look like they are floating. I am a vet tech and when i was in school i had to dissect a cat…and i’m pretty sure this “skeleton” is a model and is not real…it looks too perfect. i would be curious to see if the people that sent in this pic will post the story behind it…i would guess that one or both of them are vet students or something…this is the kind of picture that i would take…i have a weird sense of humor too! haha

    • lilred says:

      Yeah there is no way it is real. You can’t get bones that white, unless you were to paint them (I worked with real skeletons in school too)….maybe they painted the bones of their dead cat AND they are vet students! It all makes sense now!

    • cheddah says:

      oh sure, it may not be real, but he did spend half his childhood putting it together.

      • Js says:

        HA! HA! HA! I will now thank my lucky stars that my husband only has a collection of aircraft models from HIS childhood. πŸ™‚

  49. CC says:

    There creepy and they’re kooky…… The Addams Fam-i-ly!!! snap-snap.
