Posted on 01/19/2013 11:02:24 PM PST by Slings and Arrows
Doing the laundry is never the most fun task but having a little help does make the mundane a little easier to bear.
Like cleaning the bathroom and mowing the lawn, sorting out dirty washing can be a boring job for unwilling hands.
It doesnt seem to be a troublesome chore for this cute kitten however who appears more than willing to help out his owner.
Leaping up from inside the laundry basket, the acrobatic feline grabs whatever is thrown its way in this adorable clip.
Smelly socks, t-shirts or even grubby underpants dont appear to faze the moggy who takes it all in his stride.
The clip has racked up more than 30,000 hits on video-sharing website YouTube in just a matter of days and received thousands of likes.
Such an acrobatic beautiful kitty :-) wrote one impressed user.
The kitten is not the first feline internet star, last year a video of a cat sitting on a wall like a human became a hit online.

This is what happens when you cross a cat with a spring piston.
Helpful cat is helpful.
I wanted to get a kitten for my daughter on Christmas but my wife put the kibosh on it. Said wait till she is old enough.
err hrr? old enough for a kitten?
Seems it is against the law in Germany to declaw a cat.
I also took the time to learn the feline body language to judge when they wanted to be petted and when they wanted to be left alone. That is a big cause of scratching humans, especially with children. The cat has had enough and tries to give some hints as to that, but the kid won't stop. Or, the child pulls the cat's tail or pokes its eyes, etc. You can't let a child play unsupervised with a cat until you absolutely know that the child is responsible and not cruel. I would not recommend a small kitten for a child. A cat of at least a year who has been raised around kids is a safer bet.
I admit that I am a bit prejudiced toward Maine Coons, which are beautiful and known to be great with kids...LOL.
Thanks for your recommendation.
I watched Cesar Millan tonight. He says he understand nothing about cats ... because they do not have a “pack mentality”. They are driven by their individuality.
Very true! Every one of my cats has a distinct personality.
Thank you for overlooking my typos. It should have said:
He says he doesn’t understand anything about cats.
They don’t look very shamed, do they?
The other one prefers laying by the fireplace.
One of mine has learned how to open the medicine cabinet. Luckily, all he’s interested in are foam earplugs. (I don’t get it either.)
I often wondered why I got up so early, then I realized they demand to be fed at 5:00 AM. Right now they’re sleeping off breakfast.
Id never have my cat declawed even if I have been tempted many times.
When she was a small kitten shed ambush me and climb my leg like a tree leaving a blood trail. I broke her of it by snapping her ears. I tried to break her of clawing furniture, even using a squirt gun. She thought it was a game, dodging the water stream. When she claws me its when I sleep.
She just mean at times but shes so sweet when she wants to be.
This is part of the charm of cats. As they say, “Dogs have masters, cats have staff.” My 11 lb. Maine Coon is, at this moment, sitting on my keyboard tray. She is ticked off because for 15 seconds, I have been typing instead of petting her. She is making mild attempts to nip my knuckles into submission, but she knows that if she were to get more aggressive about demanding attention, she would be banished to the floor (oh the horror, to be 24 whole inches away from me!). I laugh at the remembrance of one early book written about the then-unknown Maine Coon. It stated that they are not lap cats. Ha! The two I’ve owned could have been named Velcro Cats. I am never out of their sight.
Is this your latest babycat? Adorable!
Cool kitteh loves to play! Too cute, and thanks for the ping.
She is about 7 now, still running things.
We found her in a ditch just before those pictures were taken
My cat went through a phase where he liked Q-Tips.
Kitteh’s got some serious vertical leap going...
Here’s a cute one I saw the other day:
YAY For kittehs.
I’m loving looking at the beautiful kitties that have found forever homes. It’s wonderful.
Re:Declawing- my first cat I ever shared my life with came from the shelter declawed. I really never thought about it , since her back two paws were left intact.
When she died I adopted my present cat who is not declawed. One day I went to my mother’s house for lunch and she was upset to see scratches on my hands from kitty. Mom suggested I get the cat declawed. My vet was very sweet about it, sat me down and for about 15 minutes explained the procedure in GRAPHIC detail and drawings, and after that there was no way I would let that fur ball get it. Or any fuzz balls I might have in the future.
They do have their quirks.
Life imitates art:
Glad you liked.
Awwwww... that is cute!
And of course I’m a little biased since one of my cats is a torbie.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said “Aw.” so far.
Aw, what a beauty. I had a cat that looked like her when i was growing up. She lived to be 17 years old and only two of those years we didn’t share a pillow, which were her last two years after I married and moved to an apartment that didn’t allow pets. She stayed with my Mom who pampered her.
I recently baby-sat for a friend's sweet little kitty, and the first night, she was standing on my chest, head-butting my chin at about 4:15am. My first thought was, "so this is why Pam said I should sleep with my door closed." So I got up to feed her, but her food bowl was still full. I walked back into the bedroom, and she was just sitting on my bed, meowing at me. Once I laid down, she got back on my chest, and just wanted to be petted for about 10 or 15 minutes. Nobody had informed me that 4:15am was "pet the kitty time." After 10 - 15 minutes, she just got up, settled herself between my legs, and went back to sleep.
Yes, she owned me...
She’s just a little 7 lb. scrap of fur and utter mischief (she’s on night maneuvers at this very moment, running some sort of ambush for the other cat, LOL), but I love every single fiber of her tiny self. She is the cutest, funniest, smartest little gal you could ever find, and imagine, she was just a feral kitten. Had someone not found her and her brothers, she would have died and ended up in a garbage can somewhere instead of filling my days with such joy. I’ve had several formerly feral kittens I raised up and they have been phenomenal pets.
Yea, my cat is sometimes jealous of my laptop. When she wants attention she purrs and walks back and forth between me and the keyboard. At least now she doesnt walk on the keys anymore.
