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.

Amazing.

Matt Blank said...

Pretty sure this was my childhood and the reason therapists can afford to drive BMWs to therapist conventions.

khorre said...

My love for you grows and grows.

gasiu said...

You're absolutely amazing.

Lauren said...

Ah-maze-ing. Thank you for making my evening perfect.

Alli said...

Oh my God, this post is awesome. It's message is true: cats can hurt! This video will help raise awareness.

Fwippy said...

Oh my gosh, this is the most fantastic thing! I love how you don't even need dialog for it, it is just so clear what is happening from the facial expressions!

bryan said...

This hits a little TOO close to home.

slightlysatan said...

My cat approves of this message.

Jessics said...

Just woke up. Can't stop laughing. BEST AFTERNOON EVER.

JRose said...

Brilliant. I had many similar episodes growing up consisting of trying to love my cat far past her tolerance for me.

Lizzy said...

I love you.

And I totally stalked your Youtube. The rock video made me think about the time in 6th grade a "friend" threw a rock at me and it hit me in the left eye, then the next year when we had vision tests, I failed for the first time and had to go to the eye doctor and they told me I had astigmatism in my left eye.

I should go to bed.

pure quality

Alicia said...

That was obviously not a child proof cat. We had a cat when I was a kid and it let us drag it around by its tail and tie it to trees for interrogation and all sorts of fun things.

Sarah said...

When my parents wanted us to leave a cat be, they just told us it was sleeeeping. We believed them.

LS said...

I'm happy so many terrible things happened to you. They make good stories.

ShaylaaYo. said...

I feel a little bad for laughing at your childhood trauma, but if it's any consolation, I had a similar experience with a dog once. lol.

Sherilin Riley said...

dude, that was freakin awesome! i have 2 gray cats who will also wound small children when necessary.
and btw, my 8 yr old wants to be you when she grows up. she writes her own blog & always wishes she could be as funny & famous as you.

Fred Miller said...

That new movie Werewolf totally ripped you off, Dude.

Micha said...

Yeah...I thought it was a good idea to pick up my cat when he was hissing at a puppy. I only wanted to throw him inside and got four slashes on my arm instead. I love your blog, it makes my day (and classes) less boring.

Ian said...

OMG, seeing your drawings in motion was hilarious. Also, please post more! I remember when you posted like 3 times a week. I don't even care if they have pictures or not just write something crazy and it will make me smile. :)

Haha, not even sharp paws.
Sharp PARTS!!

Tallulah said...

Oh my god, the cat attached to your face is exactly what happened with one of our cats when I was growing up. Except you should replace where I said "your face" with "my face."
I've just had flashbacks.

Meg said...

The background music totally sounds like "COME HERE KITTY, KITTY COME, COME HERE KITTY, KITTY COME... *more ominous sounds*"

Brie said...

Yay! A new post!

O_O

And so awesome...Alliemation! Yay!

Need a shirt that says "Cats have sharp parts". Please. Thank you.

Anonymous said...

The last time I held a cat, it pooped on me. I'm not sure which scenario is worse. At least when it's blood on you, you know it's yours. Then again, you FREAKING know it's your blood. Which totally sucks. Solution: Pick a guinea pig. (Preferably a hypothetical one, a.k.a. a person. Since every cat I know would attack a real guinea pig on sight. So that would be entirely unproductive) Get said guinea pig to go pick up cat. If all is well, ask for cat. If all is not well, laugh and point.

The Ranters Box said...

That was awesome! Now can you make a video of the gianormous red dog that chased (the then 4 year old) me home and proceeded to try and gobble me up through the storm door and front door that I had protectively tried to lodge myself between? I'm fairly certain I pissed my pants out of sheer and utter terror so feel free to add that bit as well. - The Empress

Brie said...

Haha...love it, because it is sadly so true.

One moment, they cuddle with you, rubbing you with their furry little chin, the next, they claw on to you for dear life as they *think* they're going to fall from your lap, then to repay you for propping them back where they belonged, they attack your finger...

mlheran said...

1000% WIN!!

OMG, you totally made my crappy day/week all better with this! So much love! And band-aids.

jennifer in sf said...

Oh yeah. They have LOTS of SHARP PARTS.

ellen said...

thank you for letting me know that i am not alone in the world. nothing but love for you right now. nothing but wary skepticism about cats ever since that day when i was 7...

This is awesome. Exactly why I don't have a cat.

tinydancer124 said...

Hey, I had a similar experience with my grandparents' cat when I was 8!

Jessica said...

YES!!!! NEW POST!!!

Your video sums up what happened to me in 4th grade on school picture day.

You're amazing

themadengineer said...

Clearly someone needs to get you a TV show. I don't care what format. I'm watching it.

Arlene said...

Lol!!! Oh man reminds me of my Aunt's evil cat and my knee caps.. boy do I have scars.

Natalie said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA!

omg...this almost happened to me except instead of a cat it was a dog and instead of claws it was her teeth and instead of my head it was my lip. bad news.

We had just gotten a toy poodle puppy (dumbest dog ever btw) and my brother and sister and I would fight over who got to hold her. She got so agitated at one point that she yelped and snapped her teeth and my lip just happened to be in the way.

A bloody face, ruined shirt, and 7 stitches later I got grounded for the dog biting me....

Bonnie said...

This made me laugh my ass off. And I'm with Meg - I DEFINITELY heard "Come here kitty, kitty come" in that music. Ominous indeed.

Guau! Yes. I used to teach pet safety to little kids, and your kitty portrayed at least 4 out 5 "back the eff off" body language examples. Actually more like 6 out of 5.

You are an Internet Superstar.

I hate Google. I have been battling with Google Analytics. I want to nuke Google. I so hate them. And in 90 seconds you made my mad go away. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I wuv you Allie. Totally agree about cats. Nuke them.

Colin Bucko said...

FINALLY!! I thought it was hilarious! My cat will attack if you try and even pet her

Yira said...

You.. just described my entire childhood. No matter how many times kitties have shown me their sharp parts, I couldn't resist going to hug and pet them. Cat scratches were almost perpetual on me.

Allie said...

Love it!
From someone whose name is also Allie.

Lisa Harney said...

This reminds me of so many things that happened to other people.

And me. A few times. Here and there.

This video makes it official: you just won the internet.

Kylogram said...

Yeah, I pretty much had the exact same experience, except mine ended with my arm looking like it was made of blood.

Also, 2 weeks of needles to prevent Catscratch fever and rabies.

Aurelia Medusa said...

That's pretty much how I imagined catching November (emaciated kitten my friend found, and I'm now taking care of) would be. No, she was sweet and curious and awesome.

This is exactly what it looks like when my 4-year-old nephew tries to play with my extremely pissy spoiled cat.

I also heard "COME HERE KITTY, KITTY COME" but I'm assuming you did that on purpose.

Kelley said...

Ahhhhhhhhhahahasdksadsakdfjaskdhf;askld. That last part happened because I was laughing so hard I was snorting and then drooling and then biting my tongue, which messed up my delicate and sweet lady-like laugh. I like the video twist. Sho do. Also, this post reminded me about how my best friend got sent to the principal's office in 1st grade for drawing a big picture of a cat's arsehole. Not that you drew pictures of that fleshly sphincter 'neath the cat's tail...but I'm sure you have in other posts, you poor, demented creature...that I will be for Halloween.

GUY DRESSED AS A BEER CAN: HEY!! Who are you supposed to be? (I'll have blonde pigtails and will be wearing a pink dress, of
course)

ME: Allie Brosh!!!! You know! She writes Hyperbole & a Half!!!

(meanwhile I'll be mauling people with the bear claws I have hidden behind my back every time I reach for a refill or a handful of popcorn)

BEER CAN MAN: Uhhh...what does hyperbowlie mean? Can you dip chips in it?

Me as Allie: NO, you FREAK!! (That's when I will stop saying anymore words and will simply begin squirting everyone with the fake blood I brought with me)

I can't WAIT for Halloween!!!

Lucine said...

Reminds me of the time I was helping someone clean out a cat's ears b/c he had severe ear mites. The cat was not happy and proceeded to use my shoulder and back to escape D:

~Lissa said...

Wow. This is beyond amazing.

After years of begging my mom for a cat, when our neighbor's cat had a litter, she finally gave in. I went to pick one out and this exact situation happened.

Despite the blood, and the hole in my throat the kitten pierced, I still took it home. Hoping someday it'd love me. Haha.

Berenike said...

Hilarious! It's funny because it's TRUE!

nataliekillingsworth said...

I hate cats.

It doesn't help that I am allergic to them.

One time at a friend's house I got some cat germ in my eye and it swelled up and made me look like a diseased druggie rapist.

Cats should be banned. I mean seriously, who goes around saying, "oh wow I miss (insert owner or other significant person in your life's name here) so much. I think I'll piss on their bed and/or clothes. That will show them how much I truly adore them and they will never leave me again, EVARRRR!!!"

Answer: No one but those clawed fiends people WILLINGLY (why would anyone ever intentionally do that?!?!?) bring into their homes around themselves and innocent defenseless children. Cats are more of a danger to humankind than serial killers, shoelaces getting caught in escalators, and AIDS.

But that's just my opinion.

Chewyolive said...

OMG, I laughed until I cried. Your blog is the best therapy.

If I may ask, what is the song you used in this video?

LisaMJ said...

HYSTERICAL!!!!!!!!! I was howling with laughter. Love your site

Yuoaman said...

Cats have sharp parts? Holy shit I never knew that.

Laura said...

OH GOD THIS IS TOTALLY ME without the bleeding part though but seriously. if i go to someone's house and they have a cat my puils dialate and i turn into OMG COME HERE KITTEH I LOVE YOU and no-one sees me for an hour.

thepracticaldragon said...

YAAAY! I was just about to go to bed and was checking for the umpteenth time to see if you'd posted something new (because I am spoiled by your constant awesomeness) and you HAD!!! It was like you read my mind! Which is good, because otherwise I probably would've broken down and whined. And nobody wants to see that.

As someone else said, the music totally does sound like, "COME HERE KITTY, KITTY COME!!!" Which is hysterical.

Also, I think my brother wrote you a note on your fish post about how he laughed so hard he got a headache. But he says it was soooo worth it. And I'd like to thank you for making my brother (and me) laugh, because he has this annoying, oppressive job that pisses him off all the time and he needs stuff like this. If it weren't 1 am, I'd call him right now and tell him to watch this.

In short, you are awesome, and more people should be you.

This was just the best thing ever! Tears still coming from my eyes! CAN'T... STOP... LAUGHTER!!!

Sess said...

I've never been severely injured by a cat - although my cat did drag her claws through my shoulder the day before I was due to go sunbathing for a week - but I have a horrible reaction to flea bites. It's odd that you should make a dramatic video about a cat attack, because I was going to do one about a flea infestation.
Now I'm not sure whether to do it or not. On the one hand, now I know they can be done and can be awesome; on the other hand, mine won't be as awesome as yours.
Either way, I enjoyed it immensely! Hope to see moe videos from you!
On a side-note, was the music you used Immediate Music/Globus? It sounded a lot like them, but it was a track I'd never heard before.

Oh my god, I cannot believe I was stupid enough to eat while watching this. Your video made me shoot yogurt & grape nuts out of my nose.

I would so watch a TV show just of your drawings, animated just like that.

(And the cat looked like mine - you didn't happen to live in Australia at some point, did you??)

I'm so sad I didn't find your blog until recently.

THIS IS AMAZING.

Emily White said...

Brilliant!

kelli said...

PMSL! Your drawings are always the best! Looks like kitty was in for a bath lol...

You're awesome x

JRM said...

OMG! I simultaneously pulled a muscle and almost wet my pants. Of course, I'm almost 7 months pregnant with baby #3 so this happens a lot, but at least this time it was for a good reason.

I am showing this to my daughter who at 5 still hasn't completely figured out why the cats don't like her.

Emily said...

Haha excellent. This video has made my day.

Skelechicken said...

Cats are just psychotic in general. My cat was de-clawed (not by any choice of ours, we got him from a neighbor who was moving and couldn't take him with) so he had to improvise. His two methods of attack were beating you with his paws rapidly, or hooking a claw around your leg while you walked and pulling back in a clear effort to end our lives. I almost lost a tooth to that cat...

nerdia said...

*dies* That is exactly why I refuse to let small children, and some adults near my cat.

Omg, that is absolutely amazing.

If you could put the last drawing of the cat w/ "don't pet when angry" i would totally buy it.

I laughed so hard my tummy hurts. awesome!!!

Neil said...

That was wonderful! I love your blog!

steph gas said...

best. video. ever. that was hysterical and also true. if you value your blood and prefer your skin intact, never, never, never, EVER follow a cat to it's hiding space (ie, under the bed). it will come out all claws and try to kill you. no matter how loving and gentle and cuddly and purry it is the other 23 hours, 42 minutes of the day, it will try to kill you.

brava, allie.

and my most recent blog was also cat-related:

We need "Hyperbole and a Half: The Movie". I would see it opening night, and once a week after that. Daily when it goes to the cheap movies. Then I'd buy the special edition Director's Cut Box set from the Criterion Collection. And watch it NON-STOP.

Ginger Kid Studios said...

I love you Allie... This is a lifetime of cat experience condensed into a minute and 24 seconds of awesome.

Jay said...

Hey Allie,

This is funny, but I feel like the animation undermined some of the impact of your drawings because they were moving all over the place. I couldn't see them for long enough to fully revel in all the subtle humor. Does that make sense? The drawings are so rich, I need time to really look at them. That's right, I said your drawings have subtle humor. :)

Kirsti said...

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
I grew up with cats in my house and my sister was TOTALLY capable of whistling so loud and at a ear-bleeding pitch that she would cause our (now deceased) cat, Frisky, to come up to her in one swift movement and bite her.
So, cats are crazy. And so was my sister for provoking cats.

Ms Sunshine said...

Hi Allie, I just found your blog and I think I have fallen in love with you. Don't worry, I'm not gonna do anything dangerous (I'm tiny and live too far away to ever get near you) but I will stalk you on the internet from now on :)

seth said...

Allie, your blog reminds me of postsecret.com ... the part where you read some of the secrets, and you think "I'd love to know the story that goes with that secret", except you *do* give the story. So you're like the *best* part of postsecret.com

This blog is one of the best things about the internet. Just one complaint--this video is too short! Although a longer video might make me laugh so much I actually hurt myself, so maybe short is okay.

Audrey said...

This is hilarious. Totally reminds me of my cat.

Feelings for Breakfast said...

Oh, this is glorious. You've confirmed that most cat are, in fact, furry bags of razor blades just waiting to explode on an unsuspecting victim.

My cat is too dopey to realize his destructive potential. He just eats until the chewing and digesting becomes too taxing, then he sleeps.

It makes me a little bit uncomfortable/secretly giddy that so many of your childhood stories seem to be straight out of my life. I (or I should say my face) had a run-in with my brother's friend's cat the day before school pictures in 4th grade. Nothing like shredded skin to necessitate an early introduction to makeup.

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

I hate cats.

Sibyllene said...

Yes! I love these animals, but I also seem to be made of catnip. Every time someone says "oh, this cat never bites anyone," I seem to end up with cat fang piercings. Even my own cat liked to stalk me from around corners and try to latch onto my head. Sheesh.

Also, the music in this video was just wonderful.

Aslimmerkitten said...

This is what my cat was like when she aws stil alive. I have permanent scars from that small black ball of fluff and evil.

Once, she was facing off against the two alsations the people down the road let just roam around. They were probably going to kill her. I walked in there, despite being terrified of dogs, to pick her up and take her away from them. I saved my cat from a lethal mauling and as thaks I got a non-lethal mauling. With a deep scar on what is now my left breast. Ow.

My cat bit me for no reason one time, so I put her in time out in one of my dresser drawers. Except for then I forgot about her and went to school, and my mom heard her yowling like 2 hours later and rescued her from near-suffocation and then I got grounded.

Tracy said...

This pretty much sums up my childhood cat and I's relationship. Love it! I look forward to your posts.

That what my cat decided to do to my feet for the first 3 months of living here. She's turned her attentions to the curtains and managed to pull the curtain rod bracket out of the wall.

I LOVE your blog!!!!!!!!!!!!

RoxyOnYourRadio said...

Hokay, so, you should never meet my cat. She's beyond the need for Valium. Bald on one half of her body and has serious anger management issues. Had to have her declawed when the baby was born... Too scary. Chased an A/C repair man out my the bedroom window. BIG old redneck, too. Climbs legs, attacks with crazy kitty paws, etc... I think it's because she wasn't breastfed....

Anonymous said...

Well, I'm super creepy and i've been reading all about you. And all I can say is, besides being mildly OMFG SO FREAKING HILARIOUS, you're pretty cool.
I always stepped on my friend's pet's tails. They didn't appreciate it. Proof of their lack of appreciation: my scratched up legs.

oh dear, I watched this while my sweet (so far) grey little kitten snuggled the keyboard. She's going to get ideas.

dina said...

I'm giggling because I'm 100% sure that's how my childhood cat saw me when she was hiding under the bed. She hissed and growled at me like a little demon. FORTUNATELY (for my face!!) my parents had her declawed, or the same would have happened to me. Not saying I didn't deserve it....

Chas. Deremer said...

I had an experience like that, except I was an adult and the animal was my brother's-in-law pet prarie dog. It bit into my right hand and I couldn't shake it off. Still have a scar.

Danielle said...

The best thing about this video - besides its killer production and musical ensemble - is the bit where child allie is just running left to right of screen, with cat firmly lodged in brain. For about 30 seconds. Then a darker version of that happens. Hollywood script writing potential right there baby.

Also, cats aren't so bad. Can you blame them for totally not respecting peoples personal boundaries and not liking children? Why not make a community service announcement about the dangers of lizards? 1. They are like snakes, but with legs, which makes them so much worse.
2. 'Lizard' has the letter z in it, and Z in the shifty-est letter in the alphabet. Search in your heart. You know it to be true.

I needed that today, a classic! Maybe too many repeats of the running left to right, right to left with cat attached, or maybe you could have added a bit more blood on each repeat? :)

ps Alicia that wasn't a cat that was your little brother with a tail taped to him wasn't it, come on be honest...

Hannah said...

Cats are terrible. No one should have them, because this is what they do.

I can't even like people that are cat people. What don't they understand about cats being vicious bloodthirsty animals? I mean who would want to own a creature that responds to love and affection by using any of your accessible body parts as a scratching post?

In closing, cats are evil and should be given a taste of their own medicine. I propose that next time everyone sees a cat, poke it in the eye. Pull on its tail. Then, for the love of god (and your life), RUN.

It wouldn't let go of my butt...

Perfect, as usual. A friend of mine wrote "This is seriously the funniest thing I've seen in ages." I concur.

Tamara said...

Waffle said...

This is incredible.

Also, was I the only one that heard "COME HERE CAT" in the song when the "Come here kitty" part came on before I realized that that is near impossible and they are likely singing in another language?

I was?

Oh.

this. was. amazing.

but, that said, the things you write in combination with the drawings always seem to make your posts perfectly relatable. hopefully there will be more of both to come...?

I, too, have lived the Sharp Parts nightmare.

This is amazing, and should be shown to kids everywhere.

I had a slightly similar, yet not so hysterically created into an awesome video, experience...

I simply picked up my kitten Scarlet, who was Siamese this is important as to why she is the way she is. I was holding her like a baby, and she was purring quite loudly. Then her front paws shot up and grabbed my chin, digging her little needle claws deep into my jaw. She then hissed in my face, dragged her little body up, and bit my chin.

I laugh now, but at the time I felt very confused.

OMFG No pets scared kitty without chain mail.

B. Miller said...

In-frickin-credible... laughed so hard the cat came to see what was the matter with me. When I tried to show her the video, she wouldn't watch. Then I forced her head towards the laptop to MAKE her watch and she bit me. CATS HAVE SHARP PARTS!!

I love your blog, Allie. :D

Hilarious! Had a cat named Lucifer as a kid. He would climb under the covers to sleep then claw anything that moved during the night. I almost lost a toe when I was 7.

Sarah said...

This has totally happened to me.

Hyperbole goes multi-media.

I still have scars running down my face of a childhood cat incident that happened to me.

Your movie totally made me relive it.
So...thanks?

I went into a fit of giggling when the music changed... and then I thought of the time my ex's cat bitch-clawed me in the back when she was getting a bath.

We had a cat once. A nice normal wonderful cat who loved everyone in our family. Even my little sister. That is until we left the two of them alone in a room. For whatever reason Oliver, the cat, would attack the shit out of my sister's head and face whenever the cat got her alone. Amber would scream, the cat would scream, mom would come running. Oliver would then hop off my sister and look at my mom like nothing happened. I don't know why she was crazy.

This is the reason I have 6 dogs.

Mimi said...
