      YES! And the little Frenchy tongue around 40. What a self-possessed little cat.

      YES! We can all get along.

    Love the doxie side-eye like, “da hell was that thing??”

    • Haha April 11, 2016 / 10:43 pm

      My favorite part! What personality!

      • 6rabbits April 12, 2016 / 10:33 pm

        Mine too! Perfect side-eye!

    Ok, that was interesting and pretty cool. Not many cats would be that (relatively) calm around so many dogs, I noticed when the dogs wanted to play, the cat played, otherwise it was just a brief meet-n-greet. I loved the poodle that was jumping around after meeting Boomer, “I got to meet a kitty, I got to meet a kitty, woo hoo!!!!!”

    Love the way the cat calmly walks up to the dogs, and so many of them back away! Was sort of expecting a Marc Anthony moment.

    Loved the side-eye on the dachshund at 1:03! “That’s not a dog, buddy…”

    Amazing – this cat is the boss of everything!

    Such a pretty kitty!

    I want the Boston (or is it a Frenchie? The black and white one in the still shot).

    • Gigi_the cat lady April 11, 2016 / 10:08 pm

      It’s very hard to say but from the nose and the legs I’d say Frenchie.

    In my years of serving cats, I’ve tried to leash-walk with most of them. My experience has been that they flatten out like a pancake on the ground without taking one single step. Maybe it’s because I mostly adopt seniors and they didn’t learn the leash at a young age, I ‘m not sure. Anyway, this certainly is a confident little kitteh.

      Ms, this is known as flatapussing in academic circles (ok, maybe just Tinykittens.com). Mine have done the same thing, sometimes with a side-flop.

      Hmmm, I never have been able to get instagram embeds to work properly. I copied the code, but why doesn’t it give the full picture instead of just that link?

      • Not That Mike The Other Mike April 11, 2016 / 10:00 pm

        I fixed it for you. When you press the “Copy Embed Code” button in Instagram, you should end up with a rather large block of code in your clipboard. Just paste it all, and your image should appear.

        • Claire April 11, 2016 / 11:17 pm

          Hmmm, I thought I had copied the whole link… Oh well. Thanks for fixing it for me! =D

      Loooove cat. Loooove her name!!

  11. Kar April 12, 2016 / 2:20 am

    Even for a cat, that is some major swagger/confidence.

  12. Jerzowa April 12, 2016 / 2:27 am

    Is Boomer the sibling of Didga the skateboarding cat? Because that would make this family the coolest family on planet Earth!

    What a delightful start to my morning! NTMTOM, I think you understated when you said “generally more tolerant than some people nowadays”. Given the level of vitriol and abuse I see people heaping on each other in news and comments, this just reaffirms my long-held opinion that animals are better people than far too many people these days–present company totally excepted, of course!!
