I Surrender!

Yeah, so… I’m really into surrendering. I’ll just walk into a room, put up my hands and turn myself in. I’ve been doing it since I was young, and theย people who live with me have no idea why I do this.


I just think of it as an investment in my future survival. We all know that something really major is about to go down, and when it does, it’ll be just me, myself and I against the foreignersย or space aliens or interdimensional space lords or whatever…


Long story short, I’ll be outnumbered, and surrender will be my best option. So I’m always working on my technique: hands in the air, wide eyes showing fear, letting whatever it is know that I’m cool and if they take me on the mothership I’ll just sit in the back and not bother anybody.


Give it up for John B., who found this on Imgur.

    I would have to tickle the fuzzy belly.

    And since he surrendered, there would be nothing he could do about it.

      Allein, I think she would promptly use those pointy bits very effectively…. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ok. I saw Surrender Kitty elsewhere but didn’t understand the signal. Thank you Mike for clearing that up. Phew!

    In my opinion kitty is showing off her lovely markings. How else would we see under the cat.

    Hilarious. So funny her very own human’s can’t figure it out.

    And. That is one of the best GIFS around. Needs space alien music. And caption: I KNEW IT!

    Are we sure she’s not a meer’cat’ in disguise?

  5. Saffron August 9, 2016 / 12:35 pm

    Looks more like she is going “OBEY ME HUMAN!!!” ๐Ÿ˜€

      Love it! I too have to start watching Blue Man Group! I saw them live in Vegas, what fun!

      • allein ๐Ÿพ August 9, 2016 / 2:49 pm

        I saw them years ago and they were good, but it was around 4 in the afternoon in an outdoor venue. There was a roof but it was otherwise open on all sides except for behind the stage, so you didn’t get the full effect of all the colored lights and stuff.

        Also saw Moby and David Bowie that day (it was part of Moby’s Area 2 tour).

          Love the Vegas show = A LOTTA of TP .. (TISSUE PAPER – Not that other stuff)

    This is such a wonderful post for today. Surrender Dorothy!

  8. Mikeyfur August 9, 2016 / 1:54 pm

    One of the best posts EVER! I’m so in love with this kitty.

    • dubravkamcvmd August 9, 2016 / 2:54 pm

      Me too! Beautiful, and hilarious! If kitteh was mine, I’d be the one surrendering.

    Kneel before Zod!!!

      For Power!

    Kitty is not surrendering, she is waiting for her deodorant roll-on to dry.

    • Clairdelune August 10, 2016 / 11:50 am

      Gigi, you beat me to it! I was going to suggest the same thing. Great minds and all that… ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. murkle46 August 9, 2016 / 5:54 pm

    Their nickname for her is “GoatCat” because of her markings!

    • murkle46 August 10, 2016 / 12:45 am

      Another site says “GoalKitty” because she looks like a soccer goalie blocking a ball.
      Either is good.

  12. 6rabbits August 9, 2016 / 6:53 pm

    Perhaps she thinks she’s Godzilla? She’s saying “Pick me up”? What a goofy cat!๐Ÿ˜€ The (supposed) younger version of her is one of my favorite kitty pics ever!๐Ÿฑ

    I just went to the Imgur page and one of the comments was

    “Send a DNA sample to the people at ancestry.com maybe your cat is French.”

    This is apparently what we’re supposed to do if we encounter a black bear here in the North Woods: wave our hands slowly in the air and introduce ourselves to the bear in a low, soothing voice to let the bear know we’re human and not prey. Kitty is just showing us how it’s done. Very timely post, NTMTOM!

    Somebody say Hallelujah!!

    • Smartypants August 10, 2016 / 8:48 am

      That’s it – she’s Hello Kitty’s cousin, Amen Kitty!

    Hey, beware, she might be waving at something UP THERE only she can see… my cat does a lot of staring at a blank wall or swiveling her head following SOMETHING I cannot see… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
