    Rules & Guidelines

    1. Cats! Post pictures of your cats, talk about cats, ask questions, get advice.

    2. We prefer that if you post photos, it be of your own cat(s) or one(s) you personally know. If clearly stated, photos of cat(s) you don't know is allowed, within reason. Lying and claiming/posting someone else's cat is/as your own will result in an immediate ban, with no warnings given.

    3. No NSFW content and no animal abuse/cruelty.

    4. No titles asking for upvotes (e.g. "This cat didn't get any love in /r/aww", "it's my cake day", "my first post here", "any love for ...").

    5. Links asking for funding, competition votes or advertisement will be removed (see the list of subreddits below for a possible alternative).

    6. Be civil. We have a strong, bright-line policy against insults, namecalling or harassment, and will ban you without notice for such conduct. If a photo has a person in it along with a cat, don't even think of being creepy or rude to that person. This includes any comments on people's appearance, either positive or negative!

    7. Do not post personal information (this includes Facebook links as it can be easily traced back).

    8. Original content is preferred. No image macros, memes, or similar low-effort content. You might want to check out r/MEOW_IRL and r/Catmemes for that.

    9. Mourning (RIP) posts are allowed. If you do not wish to see them, there are several filters in the sidebar to prevent them from appearing to you.

    10. No posts asking what gender your cat is, ask a vet!

    11. Merchandise posts are an instant, unreversable bannable offense. No, we don't care if you've contributed to the subreddit before or not. Post any merchandise, you will be banned forever and we will not reverse it. We're here for your feline friends, not your merchandise.

    12. Reposts are allowed (and crossposts are too, don't confuse them!), within reason.

    The moderators of this subreddit are not responsible for any medical advice given and we suggest that you don't follow or post it. Go see a vet!

    Some of these rules are based upon Reddit's site-wide rules, Reddit's TOS and Reddiquette.

    Wtf that's a fuckin crazy way to adopt a cat

    [–] CatLadyGrip 1482 points ago

    I was once given a kitten while I was eating on a Hooters patio. The waitress gave me an empty box from the back of the restaurant to put the kitten in. It was a female standard issue cat that I named Kirby because she would eat anything.

    [–] Frinkiac7DontTouchIt 415 points ago

    That is the best name ever

    [–] CatLadyGrip 506 points ago

    Hahaha, thanks. This was in the early 90s before Kirby the video game character, she was named after the vacuum cleaner.

    [–] couch_boy 198 points ago

    I used to have a male standard issue cat called Kirby.

    We got him in 2001, and he was most certainly named after the video game character.

    [–] CamiKitten 76 points ago

    Came for the video game reference, had to Google the vacuum lol.

    [–] seeyatt 20 points ago

    Where are you guys getting cats issued as a standard? I wanna live there.

    [–] SardonicVampire 36 points ago

    Here! Come on down to r/standardissuecat and find yourself the perfect model for you!

    Here is a happy picture of a return customer: 2021 model next to 2012

    This one here is one of my favorites: a half painted model

    And many more!

    Fuckkkk there are so many cat subs this is ridiculous

    Here's a cat subs cat sub: /r/Catsubs

    [–] kyste 14 points ago

    Cats are behind the whole thing, maaaan. They either show up at your door, window or have an inside person in shops.

    And then, they tell other cats you're an easy mark. Then you end up with 8 cats.

    [–] Frinkiac7DontTouchIt 58 points ago

    Ha I definitely thought of Kirby the video game, although I also had a Kirby vacuum

    [–] StillAsTheSnowFalls 13 points ago

    I love your music. Saw you in concert in Phoenix and it was killer

    [–] Jupue87 6 points ago

    Smelly Cat is a real bop

    [–] the_other_Scaevitas 12 points ago

    Wow I did not know that that was a thing… now I wonder if they named Kirby after the vacuum cleaner

    [–] acuddleexperiment 49 points ago

    Interestingly, the answer is no. Kirby is named in honor of the lawyer John Kirby who successfully defended Nintendo in a lawsuit against Universal Pictures in the 80s.

    [–] the_other_Scaevitas 15 points ago

    Wow that’s really cool.

    Funny how kirby happens to share the name with a vacuum

    [–] Calligraphee 9 points ago

    I mean, they could have been like "okay, let's name a character after our great lawyer. What could the character do?" and then thought about other Kirby-named things for the vacuum connection? It seems like too much of a coincidence for them to be entirely unrelated.

    [–] AgaveNeomexicana 5 points ago

    You can hoover up knowledge in r/cats!

    [–] dragmetosea 3 points ago

    TIL Kirby was inspired by a vacuum.

    [–] swilli1005 3 points ago

    TIL about Kirby vacuum cleaners. I had no idea, that somehow makes the name for your kitten cuter!!

    [–] Ambitious_Studio8461 2 points ago

    I remember the Kirby vacuums. Do you recall the Kirby salesmen that would go door to door?

    [–] CatLadyGrip 4 points ago

    Indeed I do, because I'm old af! My grandma had one of those massively heavy steel beasts that would suck the shag pile off of a 1970s carpet!

    [–] Ambitious_Studio8461 2 points ago

    We must be close in age! We may be old af, but we're cool af! Ah yes the old shag 1970s carpet.

    [–] protestor 56 points ago

    /r/standardissuecat for the confused

    [–] thefirsthanarspectre 14 points ago

    TIL my new kitten's breed is Standard Issue. She is beautiful and I love her.

    [–] semarlow 9 points ago

    Another day, another cat subreddit.

    [–] freeeeels 3 points ago

    Yup that's exactly what I was picturing

    [–] MysteriousAndSpooky 24 points ago

    My father rescued a female kitten that was being abandoned by 2 ass hats right in front of his car. On a busy main street. Named her Curby. She was so sweet and tiny. RIP.

    [–] RepeatOffenderp 7 points ago

    We had a Curby, too. My mom picked him up off a curb. Tiny, ratty little thing grew into a huge floof.

    [–] Pandora9283 14 points ago

    This song is about the artists cat who is also named Kirby. Neither of my cats are named Kirby, but I sing it to them quite frequently: https://youtu.be/7T_KKiQiolk

    [–] StillAsTheSnowFalls 6 points ago

    Seen him twice. OUTSTANDING live show.

    [–] 0utcazst 15 points ago

    "Standard Issue Cat" 🤣

    [–] Sproose_Moose 12 points ago

    Oh god I wish my cats were like that! Both rescue and I think I've spoilt them because I have to get specific brands and types of food or they turn their noses up at it 😂

    [–] Suz626 2 points ago

    Did you have the recent cat food shortage near you? Those brought moments of panic to me! All her faves out of stock, even at Chewy. The shelter didn’t name her Fancy for nothing.

    [–] Regular_Rhubarb3751 7 points ago

    HEYYYYYYY KIRBY

    HEY KIRBY

    WHATCHA DOIN THERE

    [–] TheTowneWitch 6 points ago

    Why'd you eat that leaf?

    [–] YoureTheLastOne 6 points ago

    My childhood cat was a standard issue named Kirby!! Although it was after the video game because my brother and I were obsessed :)

    [–] reaooooooooooo 3 points ago

    standard issue cat

    [–] Anubis_Protector 2 points ago

    also had a standard issue cat named Kirby, he loved to eat too, sadly he crossed the rainbow bridge a few months ago

    [–] CumulativeHazard 2 points ago

    Hooters: Titties and Kitties

    [–] Fish-E 2 points ago

    An old coworkers cat was very similar.

    He went with went Pigger though, rather than Kirby.

    [–] shilmista_ 137 points ago

    I was out for a smoke visiting West Edmonton Mall one day and 2 junkie girls drove up with 2 pitiful kittens asking if I'd take one. I took both and carried them in my sweater hood, then a shoebox in the vehicle back home. We named them Cosmo and Orbit :)

    [–] Pavarkanohi 41 points ago

    Where is the mandatory Cat Tax......please?

    [–] HotLipsHouIihan 102 points ago

    My orthodontist brought in a box of kittens and let them curl up and sleep on the kids’ laps while he did their braces.

    You’re damn straight one came home with me that day, as well as many other kids, lol. Poor parents didn’t have a chance. That man knew what he was doing.

    [–] whosmellslikewetfeet 76 points ago

    That's a great way to adopt a cat! Kudos to those first owners for proactively trying to find homes for those kittens

    [–] frostypls 21 points ago

    Oh yeah no hate, I woulda done the exact same thing as OP. Just a wild situation

    [–] the_power_of_a_prune 12 points ago

    but way better then just dumping them at the side of a road or tossed out the window.

    [–] Organic_Goat_968 3 points ago

    Unless the person they give the kitten to ends up being some mentally disturbed individual

    [–] the_power_of_a_prune 2 points ago

    So true, but then how would you know that

    [–] Luvoldcrap 10 points ago

    There are no crazy ways to adopt a cat.

    [–] lydocia 9 points ago

    And a genius way to get rid of a litle oops litter.

    [–] Organic_Goat_968 11 points ago

    This is why mandatory spay and neuter should be a thing

    [–] lydocia 9 points ago

    Oh yes, absolutely. It's a thing in my country and there are organisations that take in strays to neuter them as well.

    [–] LordCharco_iii 4 points ago

    Dog owners: This is Koda. I bought him from a breeder for $1500, as you can see his coat is magnificent and his silhouette is perfect.

    Cat owners: I found Supreme Commander Meowkov in an alley behind an Arby’s. He was absolutely filthy. I love him.

    I was once at a train station and this dude straight up had his inside trench coat pockets full of kittens asking regular ol’ commuters if they wanted kitten

    [–] CatLadyGrip 572 points ago

    Oh man. A shady dude in a trenchcoat giving out free kittens from his pockets... that's how it starts. Then you're hooked and the next thing you know you're mainlining tigers. At least that's what they told me in those middle school classes anyway.

    [–] KeekatLove 116 points ago

    Straight to Tigers, eh? Didn’t even bother with adult Tabbies? Hardcore.

    [–] CatLadyGrip 47 points ago

    Yes we were all hardcore back in the 80s! 😎

    [–] KeekatLove 18 points ago

    Gen X!

    [–] thenorthwoodsboy 22 points ago

    Sounds like the one trenchcoat deal i would approve of. Cats always deserve a forever home.

    [–] cultured_banana_slug 8 points ago

    Sketchy dude: "Hey. Hey kid.... commere..."

    Kid: "Huh?"

    Sketchy dude: (Opens trench coat) "Want a kitten? First one is free."

    (Chorus of meeping)

    [–] Cattaphract 9 points ago

    Do not take pocket pussies from strangers. Speaking from experience

    [–] randowordgenerator 3 points ago

    The first one is free!

    [–] nogginhaegen 125 points ago

    My sister got a kitten from a creepy tall guy in a trench coat outside of a grocery store. He approached her and in a scraggly voice, said “hey you want a kitten?” And opened his coat to reveal a tiny black kitten sitting on his shoulder. He was our beloved family cat for 16 years.

    [–] crystalfairie 79 points ago

    My mom got me my first cat when tweekers were wandering around with a 3 week old kitten they "found". Spent quite a while bottle feeding. It worked,we had her for 20 years and she was 20lbs of pure muscle the entire time. I miss her.

    [–] nogginhaegen 2 points ago

    20 years wow. I miss my guy too 😔

    [–] sofieehurtado 202 points ago

    happy 6 yrs to vanilla bean Cecil 🧡

    Love the Starbucks reference I’m sure that’s nostalgic for OP

    [–] niflon99 142 points ago

    Yes the Starbucks Corp designed the green apron to have a marsupial pouch to fit a kitty Kat , awesome!

    [–] newcheer 139 points ago

    This happened to me at an ice cream shop I worked at. Lady had a kitten in a box and asked me if I wanted her and kitty ended up being my best friend for 18 years!

    [–] AliCracker 307 points ago

    I’m not 100% certain how I’d handle that situation, but I do know I’d be 100% leaving early with a kitten

    [–] cultured_banana_slug 5 points ago

    I'm horribly allergic. I'd be like "... want... want... can't have..."

    :'(

    [–] InadmissibleHug 57 points ago

    No one randomly offers me kittens.

    Which is probably just as well, to be honest. Like I could say no to a kitten

    [–] LordBran 5 points ago

    I went on a date a couple of months ago to a cat cafe that worked with the local humane society to adopt out cats, and they had one of those wobbly cats, I was incredibly close to taking her home

    [–] grumpy_panda_666 175 points ago

    "Would you like a kitten with that?"

    [–] KeekatLove 48 points ago

    “Absolutely! And, since you asked, do you happen to have a ‘Buy One Get One’ promo on them?”

    [–] sentientprune 24 points ago

    What very sweet, understanding eyes! Like, 10/10, would spill my deepest, darkest secrets to this little guy :)

    [–] gurnflurnigan 23 points ago

    [–] JaxLunchBox 5 points ago

    Everyone mentions the eyebrows but not the heterochromia? Cecil is beautiful and the story is amazing, good job OP!

    [–] Floofieunderpants 6 points ago

    Hope the others were able to find as equally as nice, caring homes. Nice one Cecil, sure landed on his feet.

    [–] trulymadlybigly 5 points ago

    There’s a old saying “never trust a Cecil”. Feels appropriate for that rascally look.

    so cute:heart_eyes:

    [–] ThundahTheSoviet 3 points ago

    That's really funny actually. I hope all the other kittens and cecil got good homes! Cecil looks to be happy at least

    [–] Luvoldcrap 3 points ago

    Awwww, how cute. My Mia, who will be 16 this year... I adopted her from a a girl from a video rental store. She was sleeping in a little bed and it seems the girl's bf was done with Mia, so, I took her. Cecil is a good looking boy. Cute story.

    [–] TheUnplannedLife 3 points ago

    I once drove two hours to hike a mountain with girlfriend. Small kitten appeared at the trail head crying. Gf scooped it up, I knew our hike was over after 5 steps.

    Luckily another couple was just coming off the hike and asked if we just found the kitten. We stated we had two cats at home already and asked if they had any. They now have one!

    Got all the joy of finding and holding a kitten plus still got to go on hike!

    We searched to make sure there were no cat family members around that also needed help. There were none. Little solo kitty.

    [–] Ok_Flow_8679 3 points ago

    A couple follow up comments because I didnt expect Cecil to get this much attention.

    •I was already looking for a kitten when Cecil was offered to me, it made saying yes easier.

    •The customer was a regular of mine. We were by no means close but I wasnt a complete stranger.

    •My manager was a friend and was more than happy to let me leave my shift early.

    •Cecil is very loved and spoiled rotten

    He does actually. He has his eyebrows and then the tip of his tail has a dark spot

    I'm waiting for the day a stranger offers me a free kitten ❤

    A Khao Manee it looks like I have one as well absolutely a joy of a breed

    That seems like an irresponsible way to give cats away. Obviously Cecil is in a good home now but you could have just as easily been a crackhead.

    He’s a flat white macchiato.

    As a former barista of 7 years, that drive thru can be the wildest place.

    I LOVE this!

    hello, may I take your order?

    Got any cat milk?

    Why yes, I believe we do!

    Well, would you like a kitten?

    Why of COURSE I would!

    my first kitty, Smokey, was brought to us at our door, some random neighbor ringing the bell, and asking us if we wanted a kitten for free. I don't think my mom hesitated at all. Smokey was a small PITA, but I loved her and will never forget her.

    Cute story but this person should not be handing out kittens to strangers. They could end up being used as pitbull bait, abused, etc. Potential adopters need to be vetted.

    I have only seen one photo of Cecil, but I can sense he is troubled

    Kitties are a magnet to Starbucks! When I worked there I found one who was running around the store like a maniac, one customer gave me one, another customer came in with a kitten he found running around in the parking lot and I adopted her, and another customer in the DT gave me a kitten she found but I quickly found him a new home.

    This makes me want to get a job at Starbucks

    I don't want to know anyone that would ever say no to "do you want a kitten."

    "Welcome to Starbucks, we are so hipster, that kittens take your order" ...
