Kitten Videos As Therapy


photo from TinyKittens.com

This video is good for your health! Really!


Cynthia:  If you need a moment of Zen. Actually, if you need six minutes and 49 seconds of Zen, I recommend you watch this video.

You will instantly feel relaxed and peaceful. You will smile. It will enable you to go about the rest of your day without stress. Without rage. And without unhappiness.

Seriously. It’s better than yoga or a glass of wine.

Well, maybe not a glass of wine. But close.

Cynthia presses play. (click on the text at the bottom of the photo)

Cynthia:  Ahhhh…


Marcy wanders in and immediately becomes panicked.

Marcy:  Hey, Penelope! Cindy’s watching kitten videos!

penelope kitten:  oh no.

Marcy:  Do something, P! Kittens are evil. They’re manipulative. They steal your heart and soul. If we let her keep watching we’ll end up with more of you!

penelope kitten: no way.

Penelope Kitten hurls herself onto Cynthia’s head knocking her onto the floor. Penelope Kitten sits on Cynthia’s chest and licks her nose.

Cynthia:  Awww… you’re so sweet, PKitty!

Cynthia gives Penelope Kitten a face massage. Penelope Kitten purrs.

Marcy (sarcastically):  Great work, Penelope.

penelope kitten:  yeah yeah. sorry. feels good.

    Guh… that purring is heavenly. You are right.

    Upside down kittehs!!! With bellies!!!

    Marcy, you’d be so much happier if you’d just give in to the face massage… come on, you know you wanna…

    I recorded Dory purring before he passed. At the times I would normally snuggle with him, because I need a snuggle and he was so good at it, being just a gigantic ball of fur – seriously, more fur than even his oversized cat body should have had! – I listen, and it’s SOOO comforting.

    Spike and I sometimes listen together. I think it helps him, to hear his buddy.

    Or I’m screwing it up and confusing him and he hates me until it’s treat time.

      Oh that is so sweet! I never would have thought to record my cat’s purring before he passed away! I am sure Spike appreciates it too!

    All I can say is aaaaaaaahhhhh. That was one of the most boring videos ever yet I became mesmerized and couldn’t stop watching. It was hypnotic. Damn you kitties, always tugging at our heartstrings.

    • Reply TheLadyK July 2, 2015 at 8:34 pm

      HA! I love that you thought it was boring!
      ‘Cause, um, yeah, there are WAY more entertaining kitty videos out there… I kept saying to the woman, “put the kitties down and let them DO something!”

      And yet… and yet… did I stop watching? No. Did it totally chill me out, and “get” me with the purring and the bellies? Yep. Sure did.

      I probably wouldn’t have put them down, either…

    Marcy you and Penelope Kitten sure love to plot against one another when not joining up to do so against your Mom! Watching videos of kittens isn’t so bad for we humans, as you both once were baby kits who now are lovely ladycats that your Mom loves dearly. She may find kittens cute on the internet but she knows they grow up to be amazing cats just as she has now, neither of you could ever be replaced. It may seem like one sister gets more attention sometimes, yet if you pay attention you will find it is not more attention, but different types of attention given to each of you. I am the same way with Clove and her brother Kaspars- Kaspars feels Clove gets more, but she and I just bond in a different way than he and I do. Each fur baby is unique and special to we Moms, no one is better than the other– we equally adore what makes each of our babies pawesome.

      Ahhhh.. you said it much much better than I ever could! That is exactly how it is! Isn’t it funny and interesting how each cat has such a different and unique personality? And they all need different things from us!

      I still don’t trust those kittens. Sneaky little things. Can’t be too careful.

      yeah yeah. we worry.

    Those kittens are really cute and thank goodness they were rescued. There is only one kitten video that I watch from time to time. I won’t put the link because it has a lot of naughty words in it and dunno what your policy is on cussing…. but it makes me laugh every time. A guy just videoed his kitten running around doing regular kitten stuff, and made up a funny (again..DISCLAIMER! ) song with many naughty words. Just google I’m a stupid cat video. Marcy and Penelope, cover your ears!

      Hahahahahha… I just watched it! Too funny! Thank you for letting me know about that one! Hahahahahah

    I know that YouTube videos can be laughable and ridiculous and stupid, but sometimes we need a bit of that in our lives! When the news always seem to be bad news, silly videos are the perfect pick-me-up. It doesn’t surprise me that they’re actually good for our health. It just affirms my hopes! My new favorite video series is “Wine Down Wednesday” from Matt Bellassai of Buzzfeed. He reminds me of my best friend back home and shares our catty humor, so I love watching his weekly videos and then calling up my friend for more laughs.
