We Greet Thee, O Mothership

O travelers of the cosmos, we peacefully await the moment of your return to this dimension. We, your humble servants, now don our quadra-galactic cranial transducers so that we may guide you from the realm of the Infinite. Though we are mere meat beings, we earnestly entreat you to carry us to your — dang, my transducer fell off. But I’m still in contact with the mothership, that’s interesting…

I think they’ve had one too many trips on the mothership, Andrew Y.

    Every time I see this group of Japanese cats, they have new headgear on & one inevitably falls off;
    they always look just as considerably spaced out as the last time I saw them……
    and they look as though they achieved Nirvana quite a while ago: Rlly Happy Cats!!!

    I think for the very first time since you started your own site, I actually figured out what the video was going to be before I scrolled down! Although I never cease to be amazed at how totally chill these cats are, and how when the hat falls off none of them even bother to open their eyes, they’re so used to this madness. I really, really wish I knew how he pulled this off. But I know, it’s one of the mysteries of the universe….

    I wonder if Shiro & friends ever get “the crazies”.
    It’s hard to imagine them movie faster than a glacier.

    This is Ground Control to Major Tomcat.
    Can you hear me, Major Tomcat?
    Can you hear me, Major Tomcat?
    Can you hear me, Major Tomcat?
    Can you hear?
    And I’m floating around my tin can wearing
    My ridalickus hat
    Far above the Moon
    Planet Earth is blue
    Ah never mind…. Zzzzzzz zzzz

    I need to use the phrase “meat beings” at least once a day now. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

    Watching this video is very relaxing. I love Shiro and his chill friends.

      “Meat beings” vs “vegan beans” the age old argument.

      • Saffron February 26, 2016 / 11:53 am

        Yes, but since Gamera is filled with turtle meat, then he at least would be a meat being. πŸ˜€

          It tastes like chicken.

          You’d be surprised how many times that is the right answer.

    You know you’re relaxed when the clouds move faster than you do!

    • Faye February 26, 2016 / 2:05 pm

      I started to watch the clouds too. Moonfaced cats, blue sky, fluffy clouds. All good.

    As a note.If you havent seen Shiro in a cat scrap,he is a bit chubby but he can move like greased lightning if need be.

        Proof they live in an alternate universe where time flows more slowly than our universe.

        Thanks for posting that.

        It seems the link is made for an app and wouldn’t show the video for me so I changed the URL a little:

      There is a video that isnt one of the posed ones,where shiro and the others are hanging out in hallway being normal cats,and shiro ends up ripping into one of the other kitties who looked at him crossways.Tried to find it but there are a lot of videos of these kitties.I was looking for “shiro awake”,and ran across it if anyone is feeling more ambitious.Shiro has a bit of bastard in him.

      • beemoused February 26, 2016 / 12:55 pm

        Don’t most cats, at some point or another? Believe me, I love them, but you have to admit, if they manage to execute on their plan for total world domination, we and the dogs are in serious trouble!

    According to one of the YT comments, those are not noodle cups, but containers for a “Japanese snack called jyagalico which is a crunchy potato fries that tastes like cheese or curry.” – sounds like my kind of snack. Bonus if it comes with Shiro.

    @NTMTOM: no #shiro tag yet?

    • Not That Mike The Other Mike February 27, 2016 / 1:50 pm

      Just created a Shiro tag; thanks for the suggestion. This is the first Shiro video here, but I’m sure we’ll have others.
