It’s only Rule #4, Baby—don’t fight it

Look Baby—there is nothing wrong with Rule #4—[cat squeezes pup tighter] It’s perfectly normal for two different species to cuddle. Have some more Courvoisier, Baby. Chill.


This freaky moment brot to you by Ike the Pup, Gizmo the cat, and Elisha…



  1. ::chi:: ^_^ that’s classic!

  2. I can totally hear Samuel L. Jackson saying that…

  3. You *know* that wah-wah’s going to have a few mouthfuls missing by morning.

  4. Pup: “Hmm, maybe if I look away and squeeze my eyes *re-e-a-a-lly* tight, she’ll go away.”

  5. oooh no …. a pussie holding tight to a weiner??? W00t!

  6. Awwww, more interspecies cuddling is called for!

    Everyone needs to just get along!

  7. Yeesh, Greenighs… OK yeah, that’s just about where my humor sophistication level is, right now… sadly, though, this is not a dachshund. More like chalupahund.

  8. Uh oh, that makes it a pussie holding tight to a taco.

  9. . . . I . . . I . . . Im not sure I want to say anything about this . . .

    Wuz GOING to say that the cat looks very protective of the poor little sleepy vulnerable not-a-dog.

  10. Apophis16 says:

    My poor affectionate kitty is only big enough to hug my dog’s head. ): not that he doesn’t try.

  11. AuntieMame says:

    Eww. For a minute I thought the kitty was wearing some weird rubber nose prosthetic. Then I realized it was just the pup’s ear.

    Maybe the poor pup is choking at the kitty is performing the abdominal thrust on him! Poor puppy…

  12. Kittie looks like he is about to do something…to the pup.

  13. Cat:Hey I don’t comment on the guys you bring in here. Mine is cuter than that Mike guy that was here last night.

    Owner:Why you little bi….

  14. So cuuute! Love is blind.

    BTW, if you want to see a little mini-deer that thinks it’s a dog, look at today. More cute!

  15. A little Barry White, anyone?

  16. manohman this picture has got its freak ON!

    and if *that thing* in front of Gizmo cat’s nose is the back of a chi’s ear, I don’t want to see one ever again .

  17. [after reading the comments]
    so, if the chi in this picture was dyed like:

    the picture would be
    “pussy holding a pink taco”


  18. Fish Eye no Miko says:

    Cat: “Do you mind? We’re trying to have some ‘alone time’ here…”
    Dog: (sleepily) “Did you say something, dear… ? ZZzzzzzzz…”

  19. LOL….. ummmm….yeah…..

  20. “Good evening and welcome to BLACKMAIL!

    And now: a collar, an ASPCA registration file, and a recently discovered
    photograph which could add up to reduction of petting priveledges, premature walkies retirement, and possible disowning proceedings for one guilty pair, last seen on CuteOverload. So that’s 3,000 pounds, of catnip and Alpo, please I. and G.,… thank you…
    to stop us from revealing:
    Your names,
    The name of the three other animals involved,
    The shelter to which they belonged,
    and The Petco where you bought the equipment!”

  21. lurkertype says:

    Excellent Python ref, Aubrey!

  22. The Ear™ is blocking our view, but I bet there’s a cat-tongue at work back there.

  23. Send to:
    Victoria Station
    Behind the Hot Water Pipes
    Third Washroom Along

    (did I get that right???)


  24. Wow, I hope my weekend is as exciting as this photo!

  25. THE DOGS EAR LOOKS LIKE THE CATS NOSE IN THAT PISTUR! lol *sry its the capital letters*

  26. Wow, I just realized what that cat looks like it is saying!!!

    Keep your hands in plain sight, back away, put down your weapon, or the wah-wah gets it!!!

  27. Death by Heimlich!!!

  28. Oh! Can you FEEL the love, brothers and sisters!!

    (More likely: That kitty’s going to pummel that pup with her ferocious kitty paws like he was a plush toy …)

  29. Don’t you love how cat’s can claim anything they want?

    “He’s MINE… back away from the pup.”

    Gotta love the double paw action. Not a casual drape, but a clutch.

  30. That dog is so clearly, desperately thinking of England…..

  31. You know that cat is thinking, “I wonder what will happen if I chomped on her ear….”

  32. “You move the head; I’ll do the funny voices.”

  33. Fish Eye no Miko says:

    Mississippi said, “That dog is so clearly, desperately thinking of England…..”


  34. It is …..

    ……….. A HERRING!

  35. And see, to me it looks like the cat is thinking “a little hot sauce, and my dog ear lunch would be *perfect*!”

  36. JANE? Is that you? has the best pudu pix/blogging evah!

  37. If loving you is wroooong, I don’t wanna be right.

  38. New category:

    Cats and their pets!

  39. I guess I’m in the minority here, thinking that kittyboo is giving puppers a big hug & is about to shnorgle his ear?

  40. brownamazon says:

    Bow-chicka-bow-bow… the saddest thing is, they’re probably both neutered.

  41. Bonus points for the Ladies’ Man reference. Leon Phelps is proud of you, baby.

  42. Obviously, that cat is debauching that poor pup. I consider this to be pornography of the WORST KIND–inter-species snorgling–and I will promptly report you all to Jerry Falwell! Hmpf!

  43. Subhangi says:

    Now that’s what I call Fatal Attraction…

    [wonders how long it would be before it gets to ]

    Just *what* is it with daschunds and cats *always* getting it on?

  44. *cough cough* chihuahua *cough cough*

  45. ROFL, Subhangi….great link! I hadn’t seen that one before.

    Puppeh luuuuv!

  46. Beautiful orange kitty eyes. Kitty pwns puppy. Puppy is happy about it.

  47. “I guess I’m in the minority here, thinking that kittyboo is giving puppers a big hug & is about to shnorgle his ear?”

    I’m withya there, ceebs! Maybe with a little back paw action on the hindquarters…

  48. And I thought my himalayan kitteh and bernese mountain dog spooning together were hillarious. Dewd, this is so much better.

  49. Check out page 48 of the the September 06 UK edition of Marie Claire magazine. 🙂

    I’d send you them, but my scanner isn’t working. 😦

  50. By the way, this site is quite nice. And I apologise for my bad use of grammar (above).

    Goodbye 😀

  51. I swear that cat is trying to kill the dog…

  52. Don’t get me wrong…I’m all for interracial dating/marriage/whatever… but this just seems… well… wrong.

  53. Gizmo the cat is very nearly the spitting image of my Sheaffer. His pic is on my blog, if ya wanna check it out. Anyway, very cute pic!


  54. this looks like interspecies spooning!

  55. it looks like they r about to DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    u go dogg woot! woot!

  56. I can’t believe I’m the first one to make this reference — and after more than a day! Here goes…

    Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.

    Mayor: What do you mean, “biblical”?

    Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath-of-God type stuff.

    Venkman: Exactly.

    Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies. Rivers and seas boiling.

    Spengler: Forty years of darkness. Earthquakes, volcanoes…

    Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave.

    Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together – mass hysteria.

  57. LOL

    This isn’t actually relevant but honestly I don’t care:
    Mayor: Is this true?
    Venkman: Yes, it’s true. This man has no dick.

  58. lauowolf says:

    Just love it when a pet has a pet

  59. My cat cuddles my other cat just like this before he bites her! (All in play, of course.)

    If I were this dog, I’d watch out. There’s something in that cat’s eyes…. *chomp*!

  60. I think the dog is an Australian Working Kelpie. A herding dog. Im not sure though.

  61. That’s not hugging, that’s wrassling! It looks to me like that cat wants to “play rabbit” with that tiny little dog — which is to say, to grip it in her front paws and pummel it with her hind feet, much as she might a rabbit.

  62. What kind of dog is that?!

  63. is the cat really just hugging the dog or is the cat trying to choke the dog to death in it’s sleep?
    (the “psycho” theme playing in the background)

  64. this is so cute

  65. this is so cute
