  6. Hon Glad says:

    Marquis of Queensbury rules, put your dukes up.

  7. All we need are three disapproving bunnies as ringside judges.

    And this isn’t exactly “snorgling” (if memory serves, as it has been a while since I have snorgled).

    P.S. I’m thinking “cute” is a spambot. But a cute spambot.
    [Agreed… and by the time you read this, it’ll be “What spambot?” – Ed.]


  9. berthaservant, how’s life treating you? Your fan club here appreciates the comic input, especially in light of your grief.

    LOL as they say

  16. “We groovin’- They hatin'”

  17. Nope, not yet.

  18. Hit me with your best shot !
    from Pat Bentar(sorry if spelled wrong) but thats what I thought of When I first looked at it ?!!

  19. My first thought was “I coulda been a contender” but I don’t know which combatant it should be attributed to.


  20. ThreeCatNight says:

    Take that, you beast, and that, and that! That’ll teach you to make fun of my “Rocky” imitation!

  21. DKN — try and catch ’em fightin’ furry!

    Leah B. — not a problem, but it’s “Benetar”. Fire away!

    Peg o’T — thanks! Had to be done.

  22. In Awwwe says:

    ::Rocky theme song slowly building up to epically loud proportions::

  23. Everybody was cat-fu fighting!
    Those paws were fast as lightning!

  24. brinnann says:

    I’m hearing Rapper’s Delight playing in the background.

  25. GreedySkunk says:

    Sorry, Theo. It’s actually Benatar. No “Mary Had A Little Lamb” for me. When I was a wee child, I sang along to “Heartbreaker.”

    *From the girl who still owns (and plays) Pat Benatar albums.

    [D’OH! … – Ed.]

  26. meowandwoof says:

    PHEAS, funny funny funny and thanks for the earworm!

  27. Pounce kitty, pounce! 😛

  28. everybody was kungfu fightin!!……

  29. Kung Fu Pah That kitty is landing a Right hook of epic proportions. Check out the muscles on him.

  30. Kitteh to Doggeh: “Hey, was that floating like a poodlefly, or was that stinging like a beagle? …’Cause I’m confuuused!!!”

  31. Oh And I forgot to add THe puppy is all Saying I float like a butterfly and Sting like a bee.

  32. CoffeeCup says:

    Ka-pow! Ka-tow! Pew! Pew! Bam! Whap!

    You know they’re making those noises.

  33. Good Grief. A “Quiet Man” reference? Speaking of anti-PC rhetoric, that movie was pure cliches, down to the jolly, smiling IRA.

    Love that image though, that pup is loving this and that kitty! Ears forward, whiskers fully fluffed, he’s up for some fun.

  34. Go kitty! “You’re the best! Around! Nothing’s ever gonna bring you down!”

  35. I do resist sounding like a nuff. But my basic obsevashooon is that this kitty may have less of a chance against doggy jaw power than doggy against kitty power. And they obvy do not get along. Therefor it is not such a cute-brainpowered idea to let animals go at each other like this and maybe they should be kept apart and not photographed like it’s a spectator sport.
    That is just my “duh” on otherwise cuteness which I wouldn’t want to see covered in blood or anythin’ Yah 🙂

  36. You just got served!!

  37. Do not make me pop open this can of whoop-‘tocks!

  38. “POW! Right in the kisser!”

  39. My money is on the Sheltie!

  40. Thanks debg, I’m hanging in there trying to be as positive as possible and take care of my mom (who is very strong, but very, very hurt). Cute Overload has now become one of the most necessary and wonderful parts of my day, thanks to Meg and Teho and everyone here. Even the spambots and Asian brides (whom I haven’t seen in a while).

  41. Patricia says:

    Maybe they aren’t going to fight, maybe both of them are grovin’ to a good song. It looks like it could be dancing to me 🙂

  42. Everything is better with a “The Quiet Man” quote!! Kudos!!

  43. Looks like son’s sheltie Sweetpea and my
    (now in Heaven) kitty Angel. She could
    take it as well as hand it out!
    Prayers for you and your Mom, berthaservant.

  44. It must be said…notice that kitteh’s left paw has alternating white/black stinky toesies.

  45. Boofus McGoofus says:

    Where’s the Nuffery? I saw this posted and said “surely the nuffs will riot over this.” I came here expecting to see quotes of the “animal is clearly in distress,” “not cute,” “this is how they train dogs to fight,” “responsible owners would have forced their pets to wear headgear and gloves” type and instead I end up with a Carl Douglas earworm.

    You dissapoint me, CO-mmenters.

  46. Falcon punch?

  47. Sheltie vs. The Tuxedo! Get ringside seats!

    Electra, please. This is how animals play. Looks remarkably like fighting, but it’s just mock-combat. Aside from which, little Sheltie vs. big cat isn’t that much of a mismatch, and it’s probably in the cat’s favor. Save your protests for real animal cruelty.

  48. meowandwoof says:

    AMEN, HonorH

  49. Nokkit awt, kitteh champ!

  50. Excellent “Quiet Man” reference!!!

    “No pattyfingers, if you please! The proprieties, at all times.”

  51. P.S., “This is tonight’s undercard, the Junior Welterweight Championship! In this corner, AKC Champion, from the Motor City, ‘Sugar’ Ray Sheltie versus the 2008 Golden Gloves champ, from Brooklyn, Tom ‘Boom-Boom” Tuxie-cat!

  52. jennifer Fritz says:

    puppy versus cat.. got my dibs on cat..

  53. thezze am-me-merls are CLEARLY in distress!!!! how can you call dis cute!!!

    ITS ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!!!! i would like to vuleenteer to nurse the loser bak to health.

  54. I have a video version of this … my schnoodle getting schooled by a tabby cat!
    My friend turned it into a classic video. I’m a bit embarrassed for Minnie, and I think she still hasn’t gotten over it! 🙂

  55. SHO-RYU-KEN!!

  56. black kat says:

    get the doggie get the doggie !!

  57. Judo CHAWP


    Furst rool o Fite Club

  58. momof2kitties says:

    Rarely do I LOL at my puter screen, but this one got me.

    “Momma said knock you out” (white girl singing LL Cool J, very badly)

    That puppy’s gonna need a pa-sickie when this is all over with!

  59. I maded the ICHC LOLZ — forgot to attribute cuteoverload on the upload, but added comment bout that… hope is okay!

    Vote like a baby stoat?


  61. It looks like they are doing the robot dance.


  62. Kitteh (as it punches):- Pa-sikeh!

  63. I have had cats & dogs who swapped at each other like this, and it wasn’t because they didn’t get along! My guess is the sheltie pup was bothering the cat, and she was just saying, “Not now!!” Great shot – I mean the picture!

  64. I like Theo’s new name: Teho!

    […”new”? – Ed.]
