  1. OMG! It does not get cuter than this!!

  2. Leilani says:

    Oh my word, how precious is that?!?!?

  3. oh, i love this! my husband sent the link to me a few weeks back.

  4. that is too adorable!

  5. Ah!!!
    So cute!!! So heart tearingly, stomach tweakingly, soul touchingly cute!!!
    The monkey pets the cat just as a human would do!
    *breaks down and sobbs*

  6. OWE. MYE. GAWD.

    I don’t know if there exists two better things in one picture. MONKEYS and KITTINS.

  7. inner_kitten says:

    Oh My God. So. Cute.
    Thanks for making my day.

  8. Not so cute, to me. Dirty kitty, dirrrrrrrty monkey.

  9. Jennykins says:

    OH. *dies* I would expect a monkey to annoy the bejeezus out of a kitty, but look at the petting! And the contented face. So darling.

  10. StormCat says:

    I think they’re anerable!!! They look so comfortable together…and it almost looks like the little Monkey is looking out for the little Kitty… It just shows that your Friends come from the most unsuspected directions…

  11. don_quixote12 says:

    absolutely beautiful. The gentle hands of that monkey show how much it cares for the kitten. and that kitten does look genuinely happy.
    Obviously an unposed (contrived by humans) photo and that makes it priceless.


  13. They’re poster animals for interspecies harmony! Now if only people could get along that well…

  14. Oh my gosh, that is the best thing ever. Totally heart-melting.

    I want to go and live there with them.

  15. BundleofLove says:

    Do you guys think Theo is going to post here today?

  16. the first and last pics are the best – but out of those two I don’t know which I like better. that’s SO cute. i love how they’re the same size, too. hee hee

    i can’t imagine that theo wouldn’t post. he’d probably post even if he were deathly ill and could hardly move. heh heh 🙂

  17. These thoughts just pop into my brain – the “too much free time” section of my cerebellum. Here goes….

    This picture makes me wonder.. does the monkey consider the kitten as HIS pet? Just speculating – does the monkey, being higher on the evolutionary scale, see the cat as something he would be superior to?

    I recall seeing pics of a gorilla or some other large ape that took a cat as his “pet”.

    Anyone, Bueller?

  18. BundleofLove says:

    I really hope that Theo posts here today … i look forward to reading his posts everyday! They really brighten up my whole day!! Who else agrees with me?!

  19. Oh fer pete squeaks…

  20. Ponygirl says:

    Best picture ever. Better than Kittens in Tea Cups. Better then stretchy snails. Better then Hammies with peas! Bestest picture ever!

  21. oh, that is the cutest thing i have seen all day… except for sunbeam kitty.

  22. Normally monkeys squik me out (one threw a mango pit at me while I was visiting a zoo in Manila…funny story) but this is kinda cute!

  23. BundleofLove says:

    Hi Theo! I am a huge fan of CO and i really like your posts! I think they are very original and funny! I just wanted to let you know that 🙂

    btw … the monkey is really creepy!

  24. Driver B says:

    The top and bottom pics are cute, but the middle one makes the monkey look kind of freaky.

  25. THANK YOU, Meg Frost, for making my whole entire week! These pictures are so cute my eyes are all squinty and my voice is super high-pitched right now. Monkeys throw my cutedar totally out of whack. Brilliant!!!!!!

  26. AuntieMame says:

    But the kitty’s eyes in the second photo are amazing!

    (And what is this? Suck up to Theo day? 😉

  27. I’m a monkey fan and a cat lover, so this was an absolutely yay post for me.

    TGIF, indeed. Yay. Kazzle rocks for recognising a genuinely sweet photo opportunity.

  28. RavishingRoberta says:

    O M G How Sweet Is That

  29. BundleofLove says:

    AuntieMame – you can’t knock a girl for tryin’ right 😉 Plus i’m not being a suck up .. i truely do like Theos’ posts … they make me smile 🙂 Thanks Theo!!

  30. I don’t even have the words……..I think you need to just shut CO down now Meg, there is no hope for finding anything cuter than this. You have reached your peak with this series!

  31. Imagine all the critters
    living life in peace…

  32. I want to fall in a big puddle of fluff right now…

  33. kaYOOOOT!

  34. MJ — I can see how you’d think that. Heck, *I* thought that, right about when this went up:

    …and then there was this:

    …and then, y’know, etc.

  35. WUh-UV!

  36. ahh good ol Malaysia… 🙂

  37. Theo, very true. This is a recurring thought. I guess it is an impulse thought. Like, “ohhhhhhhh nothing cuter!!” and then the next one comes along…

  38. BundleofLove says:

    Theo those are great pics! I loved those cute lil kittens! I squealed out loud and the whole office just gave me a strange look! This one reminds me of my bundle of love at home Kirby! He wakes me up with his warm squishy nose every morning … ahhhh what a wonderful way to start out the day!

  39. The Guy Over There says:

    I should put that next to something evolution-based. I don’t know why, but it would feel appropriate(ly cute).

  40. pat da kittee!
    eeee! eee!

  41. I hate to be a buzzkill, because these photos really are mind-numbingly cute, but I can’t get over the feeling that someone is about to eat someone. My bet’s on the monkey.

  42. That cat looks like she’s strutting its stuff in the second and third pics. Either that, or she was freaked out, I can’t tell…but it’s very cool. And the first pic is so cute…yay…

  43. This takes me back to the question of, “why can’t different species mate?” Well, whatever the reason, it is great birth control for the cat and the monkey!

  44. owen and mzee are proud of these guys…….

  45. RavishingRoberta says:

    That Middle One Looks Like He’s Defending His Monkey Friend…..:Hey; You Gotta Problem Wit This”

  47. Pat–
    Koko, the gorilla who communicates by sign langauge, has had a couple of cats. The first was a yellow guy (Lipstick, I think) who got hit by a car. Koko said he was sad. There are a lot of pictures of them cuddling.

  48. katie k. says:

    Yay! More monkeys pleeeaaassseeee!!!!

  49. I love these pictures! Its so cute to see animals become friends and play with each other..It like WAMRS my heart. Thanks for this! made my day 😀

  50. BFF!!

  51. Koko’s first kitten was “All-Ball.”

    I can see the kitten here has already had its tail broken, which just tugs at my heart. I can’t do anything about it, and yet I want them both to be safe and happy.

  52. It was the second kitten Koko got that was named “Lipstick.”

  53. laurow, Koko is a she. She cried when her trainer Francine Patterson told her that All Ball was killed. Check out “Koko’s Kitten” from your local children’s section of the library… heartmelting!

  54. moptopmouse says:

    dita and marilyn manson’s honeymoon fotos! Yer pal, moptopm..

  55. The Guy Over There says:

    I also swear, it looks like that monkey’s ready to go Kitty riding into the sunset.

  56. Best pals 4ever!

  57. The monkey is petting the kitty! *dies*

  58. aww this is so sweet 🙂

  59. moptopmouse says:

    umm uh, Dita is the one w/the green eyes..yerpal MTM


  61. This is just amazing…great shot. WE should all get along like these two, who have no idea what the differences are between them. Sometimes, ignorance is bliss.

  62. Hahahaha!…
    Meg, STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT!!!! I’m reporting you to the…(this might take a few days!)……! OMG…I’ve never seen such an odd pair and I’m surprised the kitty stayed there while the monkey petted it! I like the 1st pic best because the monkey seems to be just introducing himself….hahahaha! …and very gently I might add….just too cute :o)

  63. That is beautiful. I want to go hug something.

  64. Wonderful pictures. By the way it’s spelt ‘asterisk’. Asterix was the The Little Gaul That Could.

  65. thanks, lDgaf, for pointing that out. I wanted to but chickened out. Nit-picking, ya know. . .

  66. this is TOO cuteeeeeeee

  69. BenPanced says:

    That’s probably the safest cat in the park!

  71. Subhangi says:

    I used to love monkeys, but of late they have become a nuisance in India (man-made, of course.) But I love the monkitty combo!!! *squeeeeee*

  72. Kyaaaah! I love it when animals you do not normally see hanging out together start getting all chummy…Like this. *_*

  73. i luv monkeys!!

  74. Truly lovely photos. I would love to think that they will be friends all their lives.
    And, of course, that the monkey would teach the kitten to swing from trees by its tail.

  75. that monkey has a super long tail! how sweet where the monkey is petting the kitties precious head! ^_^! how sweet i hope they are bff

  76. violingirl says:

    Wow, it’s like a scene out of a Disney movie… two unlikely animals develop a rare and beautiful friendship…

  77. Carlisa says:

    Maybe I’m crazy, but I swear it seems that monkey is trying to be more than just friends! 1st it’s a polite introduction, 2nd is wine and dine (got caught over “petting”) and the 3rd he’s scoping out a place in the park to get “cozy” and away from the camera. I do NOT want to see their offspring! LOL

  78. deirdre says:

    koko’s first kitten was given to her after she repeatedly requested one. when given the kitten koko examined it carefully, including the mink buttons, and after watching him roar around playing, koko named him AllBall–i like to think she recognized him as male, and named him for his wild energy…

    she mourned him greatly, and was very careful of her next kitten.

  79. Quite possibly the cutest little buddies, ever! EVER!!

  80. geekbreath says:

    omg, so insanely cute I could barf… seriously!

  81. Christine says:

    SQUEE! So cute! I’ve been away all weekend, so I am now coming home to this deluge of cuteness! I <333 it.

  82. Kitty seem to be quite friendly to other pets!

  83. Wow.. monkeys are cool.. and Cats are way cool. I wish America had more monkeys besides the talking (humans) ones. They’re tooooooo loud.

  84. Thanks!!! I just got in a pushie shovie with a friend… and this totally helped me get over it!!!
    I don’t know if my friend will feel the same you know… but it’s so cuuuuuuuuteeeeeeeee
