Help My Cat Be in a Blank While Blanking a Blank
November 18, 2006 12:20 AM   Subscribe

I have a cat, a camera, and decent photoshop skills. Help me come up with clever things to do that fit into the meme about the cats doing things that is all over the internet.

I recently moved into an apartment that contains a cat. I also recently came across the phenomenon of ceiling cat, who is apparently watching me masturbate. What are the best suggestions of the most outlandish, absurd, sublime, subtle, or transcendenta67l scenes I can pose with the cat to be turned into the meme about the cat being somewhere and doing something.

I'm down to make props, costumes, and I have a standard apartment with all the stuff an apartment is likely to contain. Is there a ceiling cat-like scene that you were hoping existed? Because I will make it happen.

P.S. All suggestions must be kitty safe.

If I've thought of it, I've done it already myself!

Response by poster: Yeah. I imagine the people with the best answers will be lacking in access to said cat, camera, and photoshopping skills.

I hope I do get some good suggestions, because my kitty so does want to become a star...

i am in ur metafilterz answering ur question (again):

make an orange helmet!

take high-speed photos of it shaking its head! (or other high-speed antics.)

Putting cats in anything = instant hilarity. Put it in a pot to cook; put it in a box, give it to someone as a surprise gift; give it a TSA badge and put it in your luggage; put it in a giant pill bottle (good for what ails ya).

Mainly, be ready with your camera at all times. Cats do ridiculous stuff without any human intervention.

Then, post photos!

Cats have three exploitable tendencies that you can use for photographs: 1) The tendency to attack, claw, and pounce. 2) The way they will lay there for a while as you place items on them ( 3) Their marvelously readable facial expressions of contentment, rage, curiosity.

Also consider the fact that that they show a lot of fierce looking teeth when they yawn.

Best answer: Please, please resist this urge.

The internet is saturated with cat photos. Do something more interesting with your camera and leave the cat alone.

If you snap a picture of it lounging in a sink, there's a place to put it.

Choose a popular Sci-Fi show/movie and do a cat photographic rendition of it.

Or has this been done yet?

Best answer: I vote for "oh god please just DON'T do this."

This sounds a lot like "I have this vial full of anthrax that I just found and I'm looking for fun suggestions on cool things to do with it."

Stop hurting the world.

Response by poster: I'm persuaded. I'll figure out something else to do.
