A Short Course in Feline Texting

A couple of weeks ago, The Human and I ran across a little article on Cat Texting
Yours truly She forgot to take note of the source, but we've decided 
to share a few examples today anyway. 
Because we are the Human is so boring, we never do fun stuff like giveaways or contests.
Well, guess what, Kitties
We is finally having a tiny contest and you could win this felted spirally toy:

I love love love mine and I play with it all the time. It doesn't look so pretty anymore
 like this new one does. I will be sure to send you the New One, I promise. Really.

So what do you have to do to enter? Well, it's EASY!
Look the samples below and then leave your suggestion 
for a useful kitty texting acronym in the comments.
The winner will be the one the Human and I judge to be the best,
and no we probably can't explain what the criteria will be.
We'll just know the winner when we see it!

So here are the samples from the ones we saw:
BBAN - Be back after nap
CCLIH - Crazy cat lady is home
GYFIO - Get your furs in order

HAGN - Have a good nom
INAC - I need a catnap
HAW - Humans are weird

MFBIE - My food bowl is empty
HOC - High on catnip
T4N - Time for noms

WTH - What the hairball?

We'll send the prize anywhere, in or out of the U.S.!
Contest closes at 11:59 p.m. PST, Friday, February 1, 2013

  3. Oooh, we saw those on Julia William's site, whichever one that is. TW had screen grabbed them and just trashed it as unnecessary. I can't come up with anything clever now. Now about THoE or PTU or UTB or LMTO (laughing my tail off) or IWBYHO (I will bite your head off). I like Sparkles' entry.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Well, Admiral coined UTB so she and I will enter that XXOO

  5. Spitty...nothing's coming to us right now. The mom says her brain is mush after 9pm. So we'll think about it and come back. We want that spiral thingy. ;)

  6. Okay, this is great. We loves it and several of us want to enter:
    Mine is PUTW - pee up the wall, hehehe
    Stran: UTP - under the paw (meaning we have our humans well and truly at our command) - Äiti already uses this one.
    Pekka: BOD - Bottom of Disrespect

    Great idea for a competition and giveaway, King Spitty. Sometimes our humans can surprise us. In a good way.

  7. why Spitty, a contest with a prize..must mean your human has finished her grading exams or whatever?..hmmm...lemme think...I have already been using LMFBO laugh my furry butt off: before I saw the list of texts for cats, I was using my own version of that so I will enter that one:
    LMTO lauging my tail off
