When I first saw this video, I thought it had been edited as a loop, but now I’m pretty sure it’s a single cut. It’s clearly the Ultimate Kitten Squee, and thanks to the many readers who sent a link.
Video notes: Kittens born April 10, 2014—GC Triskel Naomi Sun X GC Celtic Cats Helios of Triskel.
I guess it means they’re pedigreed, though I don’t know what breed. But who cares? They’re SEVEN KITTENS!

AWW… They look like a litter of Maine Coon kittens, but I could be wrong. Breeders want consistent results so… it’s basically working according to plan! They’re like little clones, and probably disturbingly inbred.
Nevertheless, the nomenclature sounds very New Age. Caveat emptor.
Sad. But probably true.
If they’re identical septuplets (I don’t know if that’s likely), they are to all intents and purposes clones.
I was beginning to think they were going to do a stadium paw wave, for the World Cup of course. 🙂
Maine Coon. “Triskel Maine Coon is a family catterie located in Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac (Basses-Laurentides) province of Quebec in Canada.”
The one on the far left got so excited he basically tackled his litter mate.
What beautiful ears!
I love the tufts in the ends!
FTL synchronization. These felids violate fundamental physics.
No, we’re seeing kitten in the crystalline state responding to a varying electromagnetic field. Correlated kinematics are to be expected.
I’d really like to see kitten in a superfluid state. Individual kitties are fermions, of course, but bosonic pairs can probably form in a large enough assemblage.
Chan thought he had a handle on massive macroscopic entanglement too:
but retracted. Coherence in macroscopic objects is the chief interest of this (once philosopher turned theorist) fellow:
Search online for anything Leggett has written and it will provide you with insight into what it is like when you spend the majority of your life thinking about quantum mechanics.
It may appear so but, actually, they have been reduced to a Bose-Einstein Condensate.
Likewise, these kitties have somehow managed to beat the standard quantum limit.
Feeeelids, nothing more than feeeeelids… whoah whoah woah down in my hearrrrt. Something, something, something else, feeeelids. [Sorry Morris.]
Should the caption be something along the lines of “We really do haz free will”
So lovely! A very nice kitteh orchestra!
I’d love to get an ethologist’s take on this. Anybody know how to ping Richard?
And — KITTENS!
Ontogeny of predatory behaviour! They almost can’t help themselves. Particularly like the raised paws ready to bat at the toy flying by.
Of course they can help themselves! Seven kittens exercising their free will, coincidently in unison.
Free will as a job lot?
Sque … wait. You can’t herd cats.
They must be the fabled pedigree of CopyCats!
+1 Nice one.
The Rockettes have nothing on these guys!
The poster of the vid also attached this, rather naive, statement: This video is protected from re-use.
Someone in the comments points out: “If you think stamping it with MINE on the internet works…. well you clearly are new here”, and another one: “Yeah, even IF the poster makes any money of this vid, it won’t be that much. There are millions of funny, cute clips on the internet. Which, of course, the overwhelming majority are of cats.”
Then comes the threadwinning reply: “But if the cats lawyer up, things could get costly.”
Years ago a cot of mine had a litter of five kittens..When they were about this age they were all on a couch and I rolled a marble along the floor. They all watched it together. I thought I was watching the crowd at Ascot in My Fair Lady..
If haven’t seen the video already you might be interested in it.
Cat & dolphin friends
This is one of my favorites… My 3 year old used to laugh for hours over these dancing kitties.
