'the whole kitten kaboodle' for 'the whole kit and caboodle'

If I decided to take the phrase “the whole kit and caboodle” and deliberately put a feline spin on it, I would at least put “kitten caboodle” in quotes, or in some way express my tongue-in-cheek intentions. These left me wondering, but the spelling of caboodle with a ‘k’ seemed fairly common.

In summary, it is best to keep a cat confined from the beginning. It would be the most humane thing to do and also the safest for the animal. Remember that if you suddenly try to remove a cat’s freedom, after the feline has had free rein for any amount of time, it will not be an easy task. Again, this decision depends on the owner and their viewpoint but it is highly recommended that you consider keeping the whole kitten kaboodle under the confines of the safe haven in your home.

The series’ final episode was quite possibly the most bizarre thing ever crafted for television, and the longstanding pattern of resolving old plot threads by creating new ones left a whole kitten kaboodle of cliffhangers mewing in the laps of the show’s faithful followers, who saw the birth of what might have been the most startling plot development yet a scant few seconds before the end credits rolled for what was to be the final time.

‘Kitchen kaboodle’ is also very popular, although it looks mostly a deliberate usage.
