Cat Safety Propaganda

I originally wanted to write a short comic to tide you guys over until I finished the really long comic I'm working on (hopefully I'll post it on Monday), but then I got totally carried away and ended up making an overly dramatic animated film about a childhood experience with my mom's friend's cat.

"Do not pet when pointy" would also suffice, not only for cats, but cactus, sharks and velociraptors.

I've got the awareness ribbon for this -- it's bright red and shredded.

Haha, hopefully you'll post it by then and it'll hold me over till Tuesday. I'm getting three fillings Monday :/

I can totally see an awesome T-shirt design there. Just a little claw-mark shaped blood spot on the shoulder and then the phrase below in large letters:

CATS: THEY HAVE SHARP PARTS.

Freaking brilliant post! I am so freaking glad that I found your blog, you're amazing!

What is incredibly hilarious is the fact that my best friend's demonic cat is grey with the same size eyes as this one. I think I've experienced this before.

Maxine Dangerous said...

That came close to knocking your 'Clean ALL the things?" post out of the #1 slot of my favorite entries. :D

Hitesh said...

Ouch...any left over scars...

Nikki said...

I have never, ever experienced something like that but I am crying from laughing.

Piper said...

That was so funny that I believe that I may have just...yes. I did. I just urinated on my person. Unfortunate. But worth it.

Colleen said...

Oh my God that was hilarious! My stomach hurts from laughing so much! LOL!!!!

perivates said...

My cats have made attempts on my life. Only one of them was particularly evil, though, and her murder attempt involved leaping into the bathtub to slice my thigh open. THAT'S HOW MUCH SHE HATED ME - WOULD DEAL WITH WATER.

you absolutely make my day. No matter how down or sick or facing TAXES FOR MY MOTHER I HAVEN'T DONE IN A YEAR...

you always, always make me laugh. Thank you.

Rachel said...

Thank you for the laughs - not only the drawing but the tie in to the 'Come Here Kitty' Music. I need to take over Hollywood and get you a movie studio so you can go have fun :)

Or start a 'Allie needs a Wacom and iPad' campaign too :)

When I was little my step-brother would pull our cat Kiko around by its tail all the time and the poor thing never hurt him or any of us kids. He did however take it out on my step dad later.

But growing up with pet crazy parents, I've had my fair share of ouchies.

-Erica- said...

I grew up with cats. They really are quite dangerous. They should definitely come with warning labels.

Kate said...

If you listen closely, it's almost like the music is saying "Come here kitty" ahahaah

Lisa said...

Ali, without you the world would be like 10x less interesting and awesome. It's too bad the cat could not see this, but at least it's foolishness contributed towards today's awesomeness.

Lisa said...

*Allie, not Ali. Sorry, I hate it when people mess up any part of my name. You'd think I'd learn to pay more attention.

Melanie Adams said...

yayyyy I'm so glad you posted again :) I've been following you for 3 months now and I have to say, nothing had made me laugh uncontrollably as much as your posts have. Thank you for sharing your talents. PS as a little kid I was the same with all cats everywhere.

Although this is not the first time you've heard this, I want you to know that I find your blog so amusing and funny. This latest post about your childhood experience with a cat is no less hilarious and true to life. Thank you for sharing.

I have had the exact same experience with my Grandma's cat. Loved the music!

Zoe said...

you should definitely make more animated shorts..not the "shorts" as in clothes, though that would be fascinating, as in the films..

.......cats are my constant enemy, yet I never seem to learn from past experiences and still try to make an imaginary friendship with them..............

:)

dogimo said...

I lived with a cat like that for years and could never quite figure out the folly of my ways until I saw this cat safety message. Sometimes you just have to hear it from an authority figure!

Say...something in me wants that "THE" "END." at the end to come as three beats:

"THE"
and then
"END"
and then
"."

The period coming separate, and last.

That's not by any means a criticism of the decision made, though! Effective as is.

That was hilarious.

Alex Wilson said...

This reminds me of a similar experience I had with a neighbor hood cat. I went to pet this big white cat that hangs around my front lawn. Well, It came up to me all "pet me-y" and I petted it. Then, without warning, i was savaged by satan's cat. It clawed its way up my back and I grabbed it off and swung hard with it. I didn't see the lightpole next to me and, consequentally, broke the light right off. Evil cat was stunned, and I remained triumphant over the animal kingdom.

Amanda said...

oh my goodness that is great. I didn't care how many times cats scratched or bit me, It was like god commanded me to pet them. Sometimes the same vicious one over and over.

It's a wonder I don't have rabies.

Andraea Lynne said...

You made an already-fun week about 100000x more awesome.

Momlarky said...

I absolutely loved this! Who hasn't been unfairly mauled while looking for some innocent kitty love? You're so relatable.

Victor said...

Michael D. Lockhart said...

The "Dogs Are Just Better" lobbyist group approves of this message and denies any involvement.

Awesome, Allie, just awesome. You made my Mom think I'm a little nuts...

scary girl said...

lost it when I saw the cat's TOUCH ME AND DIE pose at the end. Hooooly shit.

JESS said...

I have officially read your entire blog in about a week.
WHY AREN'T YOU FAMOUS YET, ALLIE? I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
I am now going to make a Twitter and a Blogspot and follow you and subscribe and BUY STUFF. Whatever I need to do to help aid this great cause.
Anyway dude-- you're fuckin' rad.
Lemme jes' get a Blogspot so I can comment properly on this wonderous literature.

Kat said...

OMG now I get your stuff in MOTION!?! SWEEEEET!! How can things possibly get better than that!?!

Allie G. said...

This perfectly sums up my boyfriend's many encounters with my cat (who by the way looks just like that, those same possessed eyes!) Just emailed him the link and hoping that he'll laugh hysterically and not harbor any hard feelings.

My stomach hurts from laughing so hard. That was AWESOME!

Bahahahaha! OMG so awesome *loves*

Indigo said...

Sometimes the most simple videos are the ones that make me choke on things. Your blog never fails to make me dissolve into weird, hysterical silent laughter... but I think some more videos would do the impossible, and increase the awesome factor. That's my sad attempt at thinly veiled begging, not criticism. Your blog is full of awesome no matter what.

What I wouldn't give for a little 100x100 icon of little you racing back and forth with bloody cat on your face. It's what blogging was made for.

And this is why I've never been that big a fan of cats.

I've never commented before, but wanted to add another to this endless page of love.

Seriously love your blog.

Cari said...

Hahaha! I'm twenty years old and still can't seem to grasp that last point-- you've got to watch those sharp parts!

On an unrelated note, you're doing AWESOME in the blog votes! Way to take over the internet! :D

BWAHAHAHAHAAHAAA

This is why I love cats. Cats are the best. ;-)

EXCELLENTO post.

Carissa said...

LOL. I love it, especially the killer music.

Your dramatic scene reminds me of when a squirrel bit my finger while I was feeding it peanut butter chocolate balls at the park when I was about four years old. It latched on and stayed even while I was flailing around. In retrospect, I probably should have gotten a rabies shot or something....

Heather said...

I hate THE SHIT out of cats! They are sneaky bastards with, as you so aptly put, sharp parts. You never know what they are thinking and even when they are "playing" with you, they are hurting you. I just don't have time for that. Like with a dog, you can throw shit and they will run after it and bring it back to you. That's awesome. But cats? Cats think its fun to crawl up your leg using their SHARP ASS claws. And if they are pissed off at you, you don't know it until you are BLEEDING. I'm sorry this turned out to be more of a rant than a comment, but I really hate THE SHIT out of cats.

Oh and good job on the video, I loved it. Except the part with the meanmonsterdemon cat.

Crookshanks said...

Cats are fucking dangerous. Everyone should know.

I recently went to this lady's house. Her orange cat came up to me and wanted to be petted. So I petted it. It was purring and everything. Then the little bastard BIT me on the finger. The self-satisfied look on its face was so maddening. Its owner was all like, "That's the way he is," like it was cute or something. Ummm . . why didn't you tell me that BEFORE I petted your demon cat?

I agree with Heather. I hate THE SHIT out of cats.

andrea said...

Thank you! That was fantastic! My stomach hurts from laughing. I have a very sweet cat - who HATES little kids. She is fine as long as the kid stays away.

My friend came to stay and brought her son. Both seemed to be completely oblivious to the whole cats have sharp parts thing. So, whenever the cat would come out - I would have to grab her son as he didn't seem to think that a cat ridged up in a corner, hissing and spitting and swatting was in any was anything short of an invitation for snuggles. (I've learned not to rescue kitty from these situations, in her terror she will get to the highest point. My head - and she'll claw her way up there. I've had my ear and cheek pierced that way....)

Next time they come I'm making my friend watch this so they understand what tormenting kitty can lead to....

Thank you for this important public service announcement!

Stephanie said...

Okay, I've had the same cat for ten years, and it still does that to me every time I try to pet her.

Shep said...

A doctor once commented on the 'hesitation marks' on my wrists. In reality they were kitty scars. He didn't believe me.

Epic animation.

That's exactly what happens every time I go to pick up a cat :/

Good Lord! O_O"

Did you get a scar from that experience???

I avoid cats for a different reason (allergies), but I'll keep your warning in mind for the next time I see one.

Elle said...

Brilliantly funny (and I love cats).

One of my cats regularly wakes me up in the morning by clawing my head, or whatever part of me appears to be sticking out from the duvet.

Alice said...

You didn't have the best childhood, did you?

Dan Pearce said...

Haha, friggin' hilarious. You can never go wrong with cat's being evil stuff.

I remember once I saw some cute little kittens cross a busy highway and run into a bush. I pulled over to save them and dragged one out by the neck skin.

As soon as I let it out of its paralyzing position, it went freakin' nuts on me and sliced me up to kingdom come.

I've hated kittens ever since.

Hey, wait... how long have you known my cat?? She didn't say you were acquaintances. Of course, try as I might, I can't get her to speak English, so she doesn't say much of anything. She screams a lot. My blood hurts.

HarryChristina said...

This is great, and reminds me of every encounter with a cat I've ever had. I think the only way you could have made the cat's facial expressions better would have been to superimpose a REAL cat's head making those faces over the cartoon body ... we all know cats do make that exact face for real.

I just started reading your blog lately (after a friend linked me to the post about the alot, prompting me to wonder why alots are not real, because I'd love one to be my best friend, whom I would name Stanley and ride to work) and the more I read, the more I become convinced we are the same person.

She Wears Pink said...

This exact same thing happened to me and my poor dog last year! My friends joked that it could only happen to me... thank you for making me feel more sane with every post.

ND said...

That made me laugh until I cried. MY cat was like that when I was a kid. My parents thought it was hilarious that this beast from hell would chase me through the house until she had me cornered on my bed. I'd be screaming at the top of my lungs for someone to come help me while the demon-spawn would stalk back and forth just waiting for an opportunity to dig her teeth and claws into my unsuspecting and savory legs. .... Yet now I'm all grown up and I actually own two cats. But they're not psychotic.

PS: My mother -- 20 years later -- still laughs when I bring up these traumatizing cat chasing stories.

Anonymous said...

that is exactly the phrase we keep telling our 3 year old, "the kitties are sharp, don't bother the kitties".

so far, it's worked out.

Anonymous said...

Also, cats are poisonous/venomous. That is, if you're on youtube. I once saw a person saying cat bites are so bad because they are venomous. They were totally serious, although what they were referring to was how unclean cats' mouths are.

So, between my friend Waffles and me, cats are venomous and if you get bitten, it will kill you.

Coyote said...

At least when cats bristle their fur, make the angry eyes, and make threatening noises, their owners never say "Oh, she just wants to play!"

When it says "Come here kitty" in text it sounds just like the lady sings just that. Is this a creepy coincidence? Are you secretly a soprano? I have a terrible feeling I will never find out.

Oh my...

I totally had this same exact incident when I was 5:
We had moved to the city from our 5 acre forested piece of land, and took my cat tiger with us. he hated it, and wouldn't come out from under the couch. me in my infinite wisdom as a 5 year old thought he just needed a hug to know everything was ok...
I have a scar on my nose from the experience, and my old neighbor took the cat for us. at least tiger has been happy stalking river rats til he died.

Edward said...

I was attacked by cats twice during my childhood. The first was my uncle's, and the second was a stray that I thought was lonely and tried to pet.

Thank you, Allie, for revealing the truth about these horrible, adorable creatures.

hickman22 said...

These summarizes about 95% of my interactions with cats as a child. Simply fantastic.

The Randomist said...

Has anyone ever had one of those "IT'S SO FLUFFY I'M GONNA DIIIIEEE!!!" moments that HASN'T ended in blood shed?

Helpful Hint #452: Cats do not appreciate being shielded from the unwelcomed advances of dogs or similarly sized demi-humans.

My cat loves me and yet, there hasn't been a day since I've owned him that hasn't contained the words "Ow! My flesh! My flesh!"

Courtney said...

You are my hero. I just recently discovered your blog (I can't remember how... I may have been drunk) and am totally internet stalking you and read all of your back entries and am madly in love with you... i mean very impressed by your mad skills.

Also. Cat's are evil geniuses. My cat hated everyone but me (and sometimes also me) and when you angered her, she would wait patiently near something you loved for you to enter the room... then she would pee on it. And stare you down.

Thanks for being awesome.

You should try to get the PSA people to air this. Maybe some other poor child will be spared the pain of cat scratches. I only have one finger that is scar-free. The rest were marred by the cats we had when I was small.

Can definitely relate to this. The time the cat bit my eyebrow because I was trying to snuggle her and didn't realize she'd been to the vet -- it probably looked exactly like the part of this vid where the cat is attached to your face. we had a grey cat also. Oh, and I didn't even have the excuse of being a kid when this happened to me! Anyway, thanks for the laugh.

Sunday night, I checked in with The Daily Wh.at, and saw a link to this here video. LAUGHED MY BUTT OFF, and immediately sent the video to two cat-owning friends. Whilst trying to figure out how to post the video to their facebook pages, I came to your blog and started to read...
I read the Bicycle story and laughed SO hard that I cried, scared my boyfriend, and ran down the hall to show our roommate your blog.
I read the "Why I'll Never Be An Adult" entry and was completely hooked.
Summary: since Sunday night, until today, Tuesday, around 5pm, I read every single one of your blog posts! Completely shirked all work responsibilities because I could not concentrate on anything else until I read all that there was to read.
So, um, thanks!

This totally happened to me when we picked out our cat at the humane society. I got a sweet scrape across my neck! Oddly, we saw through his intense use of sharp parts, brought him home, and now we are all quite happy (and he hasn't clawed us since!).

But it was still lovely. :-) My parents have 3 cats - one thinks he's a dog, one is your normal skittish kitty, and one is possessed by Satan on a regular basis. The second will do things like your video when she really really really doesn't want to be held (whatareyoudoingLEMMEGOLEMMEGOLEMMEGOIHAVECLAWSSUCKA!), and the demonic one when he feels like it (oh, you're petting me lovingly because I walked up next to you? HISSSSSSSSSSSSS). The one that thinks he's a dog will walk outside on a leash and runs to the door when people come. Go figure.

Oh my gosh.

I was laughing SO HARD AT THAT.

I've been reading your blog for the past 4 months but just got my own account so NOW I CAN FOLLOW STALK YOU :B

You need to keep in mind that when you write these really, really funny things, those of us with childbearing-induced bladder control issues have to be very careful about where and when we read your blog. Just sayin'...

Witless Exposition said...

So funny! I'm glad I'm not the only monster that ever cornered a poor cat. My mom actually took pictures of me carrying around my cat in a pillow case.

Now I'm wondering why she didn't make me put it down. :)

If this blog is any indication of what your life is like, it's a wonder you've managed to live as long as you have. It seems like everything that comes within a certain distance of you attempts to murder you.

Cats have it in for me... and so do cows... sneaky bastards.
My childhood creep cat was a fluffy orange petcryptkeeper named Gloria.
Evil. pure evil.
the end.
i heart this by the way... radness squared.

I'm a new follower thanks to a friend and I'm totally hooked! I won't say how much of your blog I've read in the past couple of days...because then I'd look creepy. And I'm totally not. I don't think?
Anyway, love your blog alot.
ha! Does everyone do that to you now?

Anonymous said...

I so... I just got distracted by the fact that you are "super creepy and totally capable of finding" ME!!! I'm scared... MOMMY!!! ='(

Anyway, this happened to me... Except it wasn't a cat. It was a hamster. And it wasn't a forehead. It was an index finger. And I didn't run around screaming. I hid my finger in my PJ's shirt.
Bottom line is never feed a part of a steak to a hmaster.

... I just noticed the scar a couple of months ago... :o

I was going to kill myself today. Then I read your post on bicycles, and watched the video of the cat. I feel less like killing myself now. I just wanted to say thanks.

Lola
P.S. I love your blog. I wish I knew you when I was in highschool. Something tells me that we would've had fun together. <3

Lara said...

I love this...alot. (heeheehee)

Jenny said...

This actually happened to my husband. The cat's name was Spike. You can still see the claw marks on his cheeks when he gets a reasonable tan.

najaraja said...

This just affirms my belief that cats are eeeeeviiiiil

UnstableByDesign said...

I've been keeping up with your blog for several months now. As you are well aware, it's fucking hilarious. I just wanted to say, I thought I was the only one who used the phrase 'sharp parts' in reference to cats. You're awesome Allie. :)

Andrea said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Fracking hilarity.

Lauren Mc said...

Please, please, please do more animations like this!!! That was absolutely epic :D

AMAZING!!!!!

Oh man that shit is funny.

Rebecca said...

I <3 your work.
Typically I tell people that I only watch horror films at the hour of noon on sunny days (with the blinds open wide and full sun striking the couch). For, when I do watch the films -- well, for an explanation, I shall now have to point people to this strip!

Thank you very much. I really enjoyed reading your post & your art.

Celfyndel said...

I lol'd. Hardcore style. That is all.

Christina -; said...

loved it! the music gives it the extra edge :)

Anonymous said...

Ha! So first the disclaimer about being able to find me cracks me up! Second, you SO need to send your videos to tosh.o for the viewer video of the week! It would make you alot more famous! (that alot was on purpose!) Ok I will stop excessively using the exclamation point and just tell you thanks for the posts. You are hilarious! I will donate as soon as my sad teachers salary improves!

JMH said...

As #375 can I say anything new? Of course I can. Brilliant video, etc, you are the future of art.

But cats have soft parts too. Big cats have big soft parts. I've scratched an ocelot behind the ears. I've stroked a tiger's belly. Of course I'm dead and writing this from beyond the grave.

Sara Mc said...

Must. Have. T-Shirt. That. Says. Cats: They have sharp parts! And the back should totally say The End! I think that would be great but, I did come up with the idea so not thinking it would be great would probably mean that I have some sort of personality disorder. Which I do not have...

After 20 years of being a cat owner, I can totally relate to your story! Except it involved me being a stupid ten year old, a tub of water and, until that moment, a docile cat. Yeah, I won't go into any details but, I wound up with 17 stitches and I had to lock the cat out of my room every night for a month out of fear for my life. Thank you for your story!

Clarica said...

OMG, I just laughed so hard I choked. On drool. Thank you.

NeilColin said...

That was at *least* a hyperbole and three quarters.

Mate that's hilarious. Annoying though, I was crying with laughter and my mascara's running. Keep up the good work.

much love

Jaleh D said...

Ahhahahahahahaha! *gasps for breath* sharp parts hehehe No, I wouldn't know any stories about kitty sharp parts *whistles innocently*

Jessica said...

RIGHTEOUS! This was like an exact replica of when my 3 year old niece met my kittens. Except kittens don't know how to use their sharp parts as well as adult cats, so Charlotte kind of won the first round. She came around the corner clutching the cat in a death grip and was like "him like me!"

Genevieve said...

are you totally rockin' Nightwish in this vid Allie? I had a similar experience with a "friend's" cat, but at least it was only my arm, and not my head...

Alison said...

A gray cat huh. I had a gray Tabby named Felix he died while I was in London this summer :(. But I have many scars as a reminder not to pet him too long. I miss him.

Emilie said...

=Brilliant=.

Cul-de-sac-ed said...

Jesus H. Christ! I thought you were afraid of horror movies. I'm gonna go watch Hostel to erase the memory of your cat movie.

Sam Bard said...

Literally almost died laughing!

smushybanana said...

Please, please make a "cats have sharp parts" Tshirt!!! I will buy it RIGHT NOW.

Samiyo said...

I'vr had the exact experience but with a rabbit...bloody animals!

kristi said...

Lolz! Poor cat!

The Storytelling Girl said...

I really wish I'd seen this before I did my animation project last year.

10/10

candace said...

You very nearly caused my demise by watching this.
Note to self: Do not enjoy a beverage while watching Allie's videos. Choking may occur upon laughing

Anonymous said...

Love it!!! My daughter and our kitten act this out daily... slightly less blood though.

Sarai said...

HAHAHAHA! :D

Olivia said...

That was freakin' hilarious. It's about time someone made an accurate description of a cat. LOL

Ryo said...

Awesome!

Yeah, the song does sound like "COME HERE KITTY!" I'll think of that from now on whenever I hear that kind of music.

Ryo said...

How'd the cat get its jaws around your entire head? Man, that's brutal, but I can't stop laughing!

Anonymous said...

This video made me laugh so hard I was crying! Hilariously fantastic. (From a cat-lover/owner!)

Cul-de-sac-ed said...

my 10 year old son would like me to pass along his request for more cat videos.

stefficus said...

as others have said:

i know you have a ton to do but if i can't get a t-shirt that says "cats: they have sharp parts" I WILL CRY. just lay down right here and CRY!
