Some Days, You Just Need A Box Of Kittens

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing seems to go right, you're feeling down, and even a whole fistful of Hershey's chocolate kisses isn't doing the trick in making things better?

Well, you know what you need? A box of kittens. Just click on the video below and see what happens when people open up a box of kittens. It's pure magic. I bet even the anti-cat people out there will crack a smile. {If clicking on the video doesn't work, try this link instead.}




I know some people who are having a tough time of it right now. I thought about sending them their very own box of kittens to cheer them up, but I think the folks at the Post Office might frown on that. Party poopers.

Maybe I should show them this video about an older cat educating a new kitten about life. I bet they'd see the light and start some sort of an express kitten-shipping service. Which would be good, because when you're down in the dumps, the faster you get some kittens to cuddle, the better. {If clicking on the video doesn't work, try this link instead.}





How do you cheer folks up who are having a tough time of it? Ever tried to send a box of kittens in the mail?

Thanks for stopping by our blog - we love it when people come visit! We're also on Facebook - pop by and say hi!

  1. The reactions were funny! I wouldn't want to keep them, but a box of kittens is better than a box of chocolates.

    1. Ooh...controversial statement. Are kittens better than chocolate or vice versa? :-)

  2. Cute! But I politely disagree with Alex- chocolate always wins!

    1. And Lucy chimes in on the controversy. :-)

      Personally, I think I would go with the kittens.

  3. Kittens are the best cure for whatever ails. I would love a box of kittens. Sometimes the right kind of music can help you out of a funk, or just a good belly-laugh.

    Thank-you for your support yesterday during the IWSG Twitter Pitch event!

    1. I've only recently joined Twitter and never seen a pitch party, so I found it very interesting to tune in during the day and see how it all worked. Your book sounds very interesting. I hope you got a nibble.

  4. How wonderful. If this doesn't cheer one up nothing will. I linked this post to Feline Friday.

    Have a purrfect day. ♥

  5. Oh! I would've squealed. A good friend of mine and I have always said that if someone walked up to us with a baby and someone else came up with a basket of kittens, we'd both go for the kittens in a heartbeat.

    1. I would have squealed too. Kittens have a distinct advantage over babies in that they're already litter box trained. With babies you have that whole diaper thing going on :-)

  6. Alas, our family can't have kittens due to my husband's allergy. But it's cute to watch them on screen!

    1. Virtual kittens are a very good option for your hubby :-)

  7. A box of kittens is exactly what I need to cure my case of the blahs! Just watching the videos put a smile on my face, but alas, I don't think our two resident cats would welcome any other kitties into the household. We tried incorporating a stray into the mix a couple years ago, and it was NOT a pleasant experience...

    Have a super weekend!

    1. Wow! Thanks for the awesome review! I kinds feel like you DID send me a box of kittens. :)

    2. The review was very well deserved. Hot Flashes & Cold Lemonade is such a delightful book. I really, really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to others. I tweeted about it on Twitter and Michelle Wallace commented about how much she LOVED it too. You've got fans everywhere :-)

    3. Thanks so much for the tweet. :) You're right; I've picked up some wonderful supporters all over the world, and what they lack in number, they make up for in enthusiasm.

  8. While i can’t recommend kittens in the mail, i do tell people to go visit the cat shelter and volunteer to pet and socialize the cats there, it’s a sure tonic for the blues and helps the cats as well. Happy Friday!

    1. That is very good advice - go volunteer at the cat shelter. Pet the kitties. It will do you a world of good and do them good as well.

  9. Oh, they're so cute! A box of kittens would make my day :) I love those Dear Kitten videos, too, so fun to watch.

    1. Once I discovered the first Dear Kitten video, I watched them all. They are so hysterical. Good fun.

    1. Oh my gosh, you need a kitten! You must be missing your cats so much :-(

    1. They are all super adorable. I'd be hard pressed to pick just one of them. I'd have to take them all.

  12. I would love a kitten but my son is allergic and the other son has 2 retired greyhounds. Not a good combination. But chocolate works for me if I need cheering up.

    1. That's a shame he's allergic :-( But I'm glad you have chocolate as a back-up.

    1. They are almost enough to make you completely forget about chocolate :-)

  14. So cute! The comment about the post office made me smile simply because my brother ordered bees years back and those came per post...in a wire cage...with the bees climbing all over the inside and out. I had SO much respect for that delivery man. Kittens would be much better.

    1. Wow, seriously someone actually delivered bees like that? I've got huge respect for that guy.

  15. I have a feeling you'll love this. Gotta applaud the Japanese for the most bizarre (but cutest) gameshows of all time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAgjB-kqqTc

    1. PS...My friend Barb can be cheered with photos of cute baby animals most of the time, but often, I just offer people love, support, and a shoulder to cry on. You can't always cheer people up, as lovely as that would be.

      I know when I'm really upset, I appreciate sympathy, especially over the friends who think they should start cracking jokes. Talking things through always makes me feel better.

    2. I LOVE that video - so freaking adorable! I want a cat in a bowl :-)

      Talking through things is usually the best thing, but it works even better if you have a cat on your lap :-)
