The tuxedo kitten is officially Baby Godzilla.
Not only is she the world’s tiniest threat of attacking and destroying… Baby Godzilla DOES NOT SLEEP.
I lack the words to convey to you the ENERGY that Baby Godzilla brings to her attacking and destroying… she moves 78.2% faster than other kittens.
I TRIED to video her so that you could SEE THE ZOOM.
But literally, I CANNOT FOLLOW HER WITH THE CAMERA.
All it shows is a blur, a streak, and then nothing.
BABY GODZILLA WILL NOT BE SEEN ON FILM.
I just googled “Godzilla” to see what I could learn about my baby monster, and to see if I should be concerned about radioactive exposure… I’m fine with tiny fiends, but carcinogens really frighten me!
And Google suggested this search:
Is Godzilla based on a true story?
Before now, my assumption would have been: anyone who has that question is an idiot.
But now I know better.
I learned, and am compelled to tell you –incase you are ever in some kind of trivia war involving Japanese cult films– did you know that Godzilla has adopted children?
Please share any prize money you win from knowing this informtaion.
Thanks for all the game recommendations!! (if you are a game person, recommendations are in the comments of this post!)
I chose a few— including Telestrations, which was (by my tally, conducted in five seconds of the first 10 comments) the most-recommended.
What I’m reading: American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers, by Nancy Jo Sales
I’m only about a quarter into this book, but I like it… I wasn’t sure if it was going to be actual research and insight; or just someone banging the panic gong.
To be clear, I totally GET the panic gong… I am thankful ALL OF THE TIME that I did not have social media when I was a teen. I cannot imagine what that does to your brain.
Just thinking about all the opportunities to make an ass of myself, fills me with terror!
The part I’m at right now– she is writing about how the adoption of internet into American (and everyone’s) lives is inextricably linked to pornography… and how that, combined with the culture of silicon valley’s boy’s club; means that the technology we use/the structure of social media is all built on the original concept of “hot or not.”
Basically the kind of stuff that sets my hair on fire with rage; and makes me wonder, WHY ARE WE STILL PARTICIPATING IN THIS NONSENSE.
But also– HOW do you communicate to a CHILD, that the thing they look at all day, every day, is NOT REAL LIFE?
SWIPE BELOW TO SEE KITTEN VIDEO!
Anyway. This post is over now because HOLIDAY!!
My brother Chris is home, Matty comes in a few days… and I am going to pack up the hooligans and go to my parents… and also give Paul his gift of 24 hours of peace and quiet until he has to come and join the madness.
This is going to be the BEST HOLIDAY EVER… all along we have been doing Christmas wrong!
CHRISTMAS IS BETTER WITH KITTENS
We had a trial run, the day Chris got in– I took the kittens WITHOUT asking permission… They were on their best behavior! Everyone loved them!
Probably because it took them a full afternoon to discover the Christmas tree.
AND THEN HOLY MOLY.
I was like— okay! Time to go! Say goodbye! Don’t wear out your welcome YET! You can destroy the tree in three days! #sorrymom
Also— as you may (or may not) have noticed, I did no holiday posts this year… life has been extra crazy in the last two months; and I feel like December just flew by!! Also, FYI: kittens eat your interest in doing other things.
Drag out boxes of decorations.
Make a mess.
Walk away from the mess.
Leave the mess until guests.
Regret making a mess in the first place.
Wait until greenery is as dry as humanly possible until taking it down so that it explodes everywhere.
Get the boxes back out.
Leave them in the middle of the foyer for three weeks.
I chose kittens… so if you want to see what Christmas usually looks like at my house, here is my holiday house tour.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HANUKKAH, MERRY SOLSTICE,
HAPPY NEW YEAR, MERRY BOXING DAY, HAPPY KWANZAA
WHATEVER HOLIDAYS YOU CELEBRATE,
I HOPE YOU GET TO SPEND THEM WITH THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE.

Just love the photos of your adorable kittens, especially Baby Godzilla! I’m assuming you have a good camera that you use? Your pictures are so sharp. Merry Christmas!

JAZZ HANDS is my new favorite signoff.

Crud, I was going to say that!! Also, stealing it.
December 22, 2017 @ 11:29 am
Victoria, I am NOT a cat person ( very allergic and I love dogs) but these pictures are so so adorable! I have a feeling that baby Godzilla is going to be adopted BY YOU!! 😉

Loving Godzilla kitten, better you than me though. We, actually my sister had one we called ” Beckah bad cat”, but then she was a calico who are weird and wild anyway! I now have a calico, and boy is she fresh. Happy Holidays to you and all. Enjoy the kittens…

Jazz Hands… OMG.. love it… and love your kitten posts. The fact you have time to look up statistics, “she moves 78.2% faster than other kittens.” and still get those great shots…amazing. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

This post made me happy. That is all.

I am now officially, head-over-heels, gaga-in-love with Baby Godzilla Kitten!!!!! Who knew kittens were so much fun?! Right now I am the co-Pack Leader of two giant Rottweiler babies who enjoy choral singing, tennis ball chasing, and making delivery men pee themselves when they have the audacity to ring our doorbell. But someday… baby kittens! 🙂
Enjoy your furbabies and have a wonderful holiday with your family. I’ve been enjoying your book mentions, by the way. I read Evicted and I’m outraged. And I’m putting the American Girls book on my list, too. We should totally start a book club for crafty procrastinators who like Giant Fancy Things and social justice. There are more of us out there than you’d think!

I have had 2 tuxedo Baby Godzillas,the youngest is now 12 years old and still stalks and attacks our terrier. She also wall runs – gets a running start down our hallway, launches herself halfway up the wall, then catapults back to the floor, executing a perfect 180 in mid air and ends by doing a “furniture run” – a complete circuit of the living room without touching the floor. If it’s any consolation, most Godzilla traits slowly wore off about age 7 or so. Enjoy, love my Tuxies!

Happy holidays to my oddly wonderful (that’s a compliment) internet blogger friend!! Interiors and animals are my besties, too! Love your writing!!
December 22, 2017 @ 2:24 pm
WONDERFUL! Thank you SO much!!! And I loved your description of decorating mess. I’m with you on the kittens instead.
December 22, 2017 @ 2:59 pm
We adopted a fur baby a few months ago. She wandered up with a couple of siblings. They moved on to the neighbor and she chose to stay with us. Now she’s a spoiled rotten brat fully into the terrible 2 stage. I think she could give Godzilla a run for his money. She’s 6 months old and is still a handful. Bless you for fostering kittens.
I tried to post a picture but it didn’t work. Have Blessed Holiday Season!

After reading this, I asked Santa-husband to bring me a baby Zilla for Christmas.
He looked puzzled and explained he had already purchased my gift, it’s 3 days before Christmas, and what the heck is a Baby Zilla anyway?
I’m not going to tell him just to see what he comes up with…
December 22, 2017 @ 4:31 pm
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! Thank you for bringing a huge smile to my face and a laugh to my lips and some critical thinking to my brain with all your posts all year! xAllie http://www.theallthatglittersblog.com

Awwwww,this was wonderful and thanks a bunch for the redux of your past Christmas extravaganza. So creative and charming and it reminded me of the furniture you had….you really do sell all that you have and follow the latest GFT. Joy to you and yours and Joy to the World.
December 22, 2017 @ 5:07 pm
They are the most precious kitties! I love cats, had 5 at once and 2 dogs… Now I’m down to one..
When are you going to break down and keep these angels?!
As to your horror over that book, well, people can tell that you didn’t grow up on social media because not only do you have imagination, you have your OWN wonderful personality which was formed by your experiences, and likes and dislikes; not one that was just adopted from the current cultural social media..
Sorry to sound like an old lady ( I’m not) but man, it appears that a lot of young women are cookie-cutters of the culture they follow on the computer, and they don’t form their own.. Darn shame.. I agree with your final comment” Why are we still participating in this nonsense”… spot on..
You and your loved ones have an absolutely wonderful and Merry Christmas!!
December 30, 2017 @ 10:14 am
Because, if we didn’t participate, we wouldn’t be able to salivate over Victoria’s lasted GFT! 😂
December 30, 2017 @ 10:31 am
Latest… my phone prompter constantly puts words in my mouth! 😂
December 22, 2017 @ 7:05 pm
Love your little kitten scratched up hands. My legs look like a war zone that only you could understand. Sure hoping I get a zip up hoodie from Santa for my next litter! Have a wonderful Christmas with your family and the traveling kittens….
December 22, 2017 @ 7:28 pm
I have two new kittens, one all black and one tuxedo. The tuxedo is a CH girl, so she’ll always wobble, but she can find her food and water and litter box perfectly well, and follows her sister around — if it weren’t for the political hashtag, I’d probably name her “Me Too,” for her Me Too expression!
December 22, 2017 @ 8:05 pm
Kitty Kats are adorable, but alas, I am allergic. You are always so entertaining, and I enjoy your Kitty Kat posts because they don’t make me sneeze or itch. This Christmas seems so weird for everyone, probably not least of reasons because of what is going on in our government right now. At any rate, we are enjoying a very laid back non-traditional holiday, and and I hope you and your little tribe-let of kittie-kats have a loverly time. After all, that is the reason we do all this, right?
December 22, 2017 @ 10:14 pm
I completely understand that you can’t adopt all the kittens because then you wouldn’t be able to rescue more, BUT, I think Baby Godzilla needs a mother that completely loves all that energy😊. Then you could still foster other kittens but you would have a constant source of entertainment and unconditional ❤️
December 22, 2017 @ 10:19 pm
Thanks for the Zilla pics. I smiled and smiled
