Breaded Cats

The Breaded Cats (or Breading Cats, or Cat Breading) website has been making the rounds for some weeks now. Like a fine wine, or a cat, but not a loaf of bread, it seems to improve with age.

Cat Breading How To:

1) Take a piece of bread

2) Cut a hole approximately 1 inch larger than your cat's head. This trips some people up. Remember: the bread has to fit around not just the cat's head, but it's ears, too.

3) Gently place the bread around your cat's head.

Warning: NSFGF (Not safe for the gluten-free).

  1. I like a lot of cat memes, but this one just creeps me out. I can tell that the cats are objectively fine, but I always feel like I’m looking at a poor kitty trapped inside a wall. 

  2. this would only get better if you then dunked your cat+bread in some milk and eggs, and make toast au chat. or you could ditch the cat entirely and get a real pet.

  3. Honestly, this meme makes me uncomfortable on several levels.  First,  while I’m sure most cats view it only as a mild annoyance, really, why?? Second – and more important – IMHO this promotes the worst consumerist attitude towards food and wasting food. Coming from a background and childhood where it was strongly believed that one should respect food and never waste it, and in light of a smaller fraction of humanity in more developed countries wasting more than they can eat and a much bigger fraction of the world’s population not having enough….it is irresponsible, bad taste and silly (and not in a good way).

    1.  Isn’t just having cats an enormous “waste” of food resources?  like 100,000 times all the bread ever used to decorate their heads? or popcorn strung on our Christmas trees.

      And maybe most people use stale bread… and don’t ear croutons.

      1. Or they toast and eat the bread afterwards. .

        I suppose if we all started eating cats, they would go from wasting resources to becoming nutritional resources.

        Or.. If we improved the distribution of food worldwide, a little wasted bread would be of no issue. There is plenty of food in the world to feed everyone. The main issue is distribution of resources.

    2. I always think that too when I see food being wasted, even in movies.  When I was a kid, we were never hungry, but some of the people around us weren’t so lucky.  Plus I’d hear stories from the elderly about the hardships and lack of food during and following the wars, how sometimes kids would wander around and look for scraps.  It makes me nuts how much food is wasted in supermarkets and restaurants, and especially when people load up their plates and then eat half.  Knowing that, even today, so many people die from malnutrition and lack of clean drinking water, and then seeing others be picky and complaining while sipping on their plastic water bottles, makes me sad.  A few months ago I was in a check out line, and the guy in front of me (late 40’s) turned around and started bitching about poor customer service, because there were 2 people in front of him and only one cashier open and he had to wait.  He was expecting me to agree, but instead I told him that where I grew up, we had to use food stamps, because food was rationed based on the size of your family, and we had to wait in line ups, sometimes for hours at a time, only to find out that, for ex., they had run out of toilet paper, so you’d waste 2 or 3 hours waiting, and didn’t even get what you wanted; it wasn’t even the nice white kind of tp that most people know and take for granted.  In this store we were at, the shelves are stocked, you go in, get what you want, maybe wait 5 minutes, and then if you don’t like it, you can return it within 30 days plus they’re open 24 hours!!!  Bloody hell!  Needless to say, he turned back around and shut his trap, and for the short time I had to wait, I didn’t hear any more huffing.  I told my best friend the same thing last time we were in France waiting to check out in a supermarket, because she only shops at Whole Foods at home, where you never wait more than a couple of minutes.  I don’t get this mentality most people seem to have these days, that somehow the world revolves around them, and that they’re entitled to everything.  If only people stopped and thought about how lucky they are to have access to a world market, never mind the consequences of a lot of those items, such as plastic bottles.  If everyone smiled and appreciated more, imagine the possibilities.

      1. Thanks for your thoughts.  Next time I am on hold with Visa for half an hour because they have randomly disabled my credit card at a really inconvenient time, I will ponder the wonders of telephony and how lucky I am not to have scurvy, rather than curse the bastards who waste 400 hours of customer time every time they “downsize” a worker and give his salary to the CEO instead.

    3.  huh. You must think the Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese and Koreans are REALLY irresponsible then. They make paper out of rice and then draw on it…while there are people starving.

      You know what, the reason why Americans have so much dang bread is not because we have a lot of money, but because we have the right terrain and climate to grow fantastic amounts of wheat.
