Whatstacked: Scratching board
In what may well be the first documented case of cat-self-stackery, Maddie has stacked herself with her scratching board. Owner Louise says that she does this a lot. This sort of self-stackery is most likely Maddie’s dreams of becoming a catstackathelete manifesting themselves. She knows she loves to stack but does not know that stacking can become a pasttime, a passion, a career, a profession. With time, Maddie will no doubt branch out into the world of catstacking and find her own specialty. Thanks Maddie and Louise!
Whatstacked: Six cups
Bumbles is anything but as she gracefully balances a set of six colorful cups on her back. Bumbles, writes owner Laura, is the “sister of Roxy who was stacked with pens and Avatar a couple of years ago.” It appears that ace catstackery runs in this feline family. Laura also notes that Bumbles “feels the vast array of colours shows off her beautiful, multi-tonal, silver grey fur.” To this, we agree. Thanks Laura and Bumbles and keep the catstacking pictures coming. Is December official catstacking month? It would appear so!
Whatstacked: 15 cups
After a brief lull in worldwide catstacking, this challenging championship sport appears poised to make a comeback! We have for your consideration a skillful and artistic stack from cat Calvin. Owner Rowan writes that Calvin has the temperament of a true catstackathelete: “Calvin is one of the most placid cats ever – I think he is part beanbag. He was completely unbothered by me stacking a pyramid of 15 plastic cups on him.” Great job Calvin and Rowan and thanks for keeping the dream alive!
Whatstacked: Remotes, pen, wrapper, nail clippers
This is Max’s first stack and as you can see, he has stacked with the patience and skill of a seasoned pro, batting nary a whisker. He is like a heated cat-shaped holder of all things you might need for an evening watching television, so his stack is also very useful. Thank you, Max and Laura and keep those stacks coming people (and cats)!
Whatstacked: nails polish
With the majesty of a mighty mountain, Aiden has stacked a rainbow of nail polishes, which is no easy feat: those things are heavy! But as you can see, he bears the load easy and with much skill. Owner Grace writes: “Aiden doesn’t enjoy getting his nails trimmed but he doesn’t mind the addition of a little color. He enthusiastically directed the stacking by slightly opening his eyes when he approved of a polish placement.” It’s tough being a catstackathelete! Thanks Grace and Aiden!
Whatstacked: Flip flops
Cat Jack took a break from all his strenuous summer activities to create a stack out of three pairs of flip flops. Hard work requiring a great amount of skill to be sure, but it’s hard to tell from looking at Jack’s face. Is that look “peeved at ease of stack” or “peeved due to strain of difficult stack”? No doubt it is the former. Thanks Jack and Kait!
Whatstacked: Movie vouchers
In a stack marked with tension and ferocity, Lapushka has skillfully balanced what appears to be three movie vouchers on her back. Can you FEEL the tension of this stack, the raw concentration? We sure can! Owner Jenn says that Lapushka’s next daring feat will involve a deck of playing cards. We can’t wait! Thanks Lapushka and Jenn!
Like a circus strongman, Tails has seemingly done the impossible in this photo by owner Micaela. He stacks a towering pile o’pillows with nary a twitch of his whiskers. Impossible? you ask. For Tails, such feats are catsplay. Micaela notes, “My cat is always hogging the pillows, so I decided he should have ALL of them.” Excellent work, Tails and Micaela on a tall, difficult stack!
This morning we an unusual stack from cat Mocha! I think owner Marilyn’s explanation sums up this effort rather nicely: “Here is my 17 year old cat Mocha, stacked with underwear while I was folding laundry (yes, they’re clean). She is sitting up, a position rarely seen when being stacked. You can see her housemate Tux (a former catstackathlete poster) sitting in the background, eyes gleaming at this amazing feat.” Maybe Tux is able to transmit some sort of stacking super ability with his eyeballs? Thanks all!
Catstackers: Vince and Jon
Whatstacked: bad words
Today’s NSFW catstack pays homage to a NSFW Reggie Watts’ song! It looks like a heavy load for cat Jeff, but as you can see he’s just hanging out as if all that profanity wasn’t actually on his head, but in fact added with a computer. Nice work Vince, Jon, and Jeff!
