Kittens are cute in and of themselves, but geeks like me go googly-eyes for cats who are fans of the saga. And by fans of the saga, I mean their owners tied them down and forced them to wear a Darth Vader costume. (If we don’t know the backstory and the painful claw scratches that preceded the adorable picture, we don’t care.)
These nine adorable Star Wars kittens should make your heart flutter and your geek senses tingle! My face swells up but that’s because I’m allergic to their dander.
1. Kitty Shoving His Face In The Deathstar
This is a kitten who outgrew his Death Star. Said kitten is trying to shove his body into said Death Star. In other news, I have a hamster that runs around in one of these and pees all over my laundry room floor. Tried getting one without holes, but that just presented more complex issues involving putting rodents in my shower.
2. Crazy Cat With A Dual-Bladed Lightsaber
I apologize for the small, low-res picture, but stop complaining. This guy had the nerve to take a picture of a cat that was about to guillotine him, so you can’t bother him about it. Mostly because he’s dead, since his cat cut him to bits, but also because he did his best in a moment of crisis. Just like I dove into the pool and saved that drowning child. Just kidding, just kidding, it took me too long to unzip my jacket so somebody else had to save it.
3. Darth Vader Plays With The Kittens
True statement: Darth Vader was a big cat fan. After that ordeal where he had most of his body mutilated by lava (WHY DIDN’T YOU KICK HIM IN FURTHER, OBI WAN?) Vader got pretty lonely. Since most humans rejected him as “evil” and didn’t care for the taste of his dark side cookies, he got a bunch of cats to keep him company. Notice the unneeded detail on the cat snuggling Vader’s feet. Why did they have to add that lone dot? It’s all I can see now.
4. Darth Vader Rides A Kitten
TIE fighters are great, but why not ride a kitten to work? In the words of The Oatmeal, “my [giant cat] takes dumps the size of your kids.” I hope I get featured on 1000 Ways To Die if I get slain by a small man on a large cat. That would make an awesome episode. I’m sure I can access my DVR from heaven.
The Fat The Cat
Is this cat alright? I bet the thing can’t even sit up. But if you have slave girls serving you all day, I guess there’s no need for standing. Also, I hope that most of you got the Star Wars reference in terms of the “and a cookie” portion. If not, I’m sure LetMeGoogleThatForYou could enlighten you.
6. Adorable Kitty With Yoda Ears
7. Cute Jedi Kittens Try To Cut Each Other To Bits
Ahahaha! That’s so cute! They’re battling! OH – OH – YOU CUT OFF CHRIS’ ARM! BAD! BAD KITTY! QUICK, PUT IT IN THE FREEZER SO WE CAN REATTACH IT LATER AFTER I FINISH UPLOADING THIS TO YOUTUBE.
Yes, this is a real video, and you can watch it below. (No, nobody loses an arm, except me when I try to cut tomatoes with a chainsaw.)
8. Kitten Wearing Towel Buns
That kitten has huge eyes. I… I think I can read its mind. It’s saying “when you take this towel off of my face, I am going to claw your face. And if I find myself on MemeStache? Peeing on the Blu-Ray player.”
I have to inform you, unlucky owner, if this cat searches hard enough – it’s going to pee on the Blu-Ray player. (Great meme though, really. Hope you made enough off of it to buy yourself some new hardware.)
9. Dry Me Off, You Will
This kitty doesn’t look happy to be wet, but we don’t care, because he looks like our favorite green friend. Not the green friend that I linked to, (the hulk), but the small wrinkly one that has broken English. (Yoda.) The doctor said I might have multiple personality disorder, but I think he’s wrong. (I’m not so sure.) I really like to eat cookies. (Only some of the time, though.)
