Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh… that’s better…



  1. samrock says:

    Awwee now why did that bring a tear to my eye… Sweet dreams little one.. Sweet dreams … Mama’s here..

  2. Jay in Oregon says:

    Well, you might as well shut the site down and go home.

    I don’t know how much more cute you can pack into one video.

    (I wanted to post something more intelligible than “OMGKITTENGETSAHUGSQUEEE” *headkasplode*)

  3. skippymom says:

    This is exactly how Chloe and I look most mornings. Well, not exactly, as I am not as that momcat, but that is about how we snuggle.

  4. skippymom says:

    Um, was supposed to say something like “I am not as pretty as that momcat”….

  5. I was wondering when you were going to post this 🙂 My head most definitely exploded when I saw this. This is quite possibly the cutest thing I’ve seen since surprise kitty. The open mouth, the wee little kitten belleh, the dream twitching, the mommy hug….squeeeeee

  6. cutest. video. ever.

  7. kibblenibble says:

    Eet is almost too moishe…*sigh*

    One special moment I enjoy is the teeny kitten “smacking its leeps” in sleepy contentment after mommy pulls her/him close.

  8. A Mother’s love is precious.

    Purrfection! 🙂

  9. I saw this on ICHCB this morning, and I thought then, as I think now, that this is HONKIN’ adorable.

    Or as Theresa would say, STINKIN’ cute! 😉

  10. This should go in a special cat-egory called “If Cute Could Kill” or “Extreme Cute” that should come with a health warning.

  11. hooooow did the camera person NOT squeal and explode into a million pieces

  12. “(I wanted to post something more intelligible than OMGKITTENGETSAHUGSQUEEE” *headkasplode*)”

    But that´s exactly the reaction I had too when I first saw this on Facebook this afternoon….

  13. susanna says:

    how many rules of cuteness are exhibited here!?
    – look helpless
    – paws up
    – a thing and a smaller version of a thing

    not to mention the axis of snorgling on display…

  14. Yes, definitely the cutest thing since surprise kitty. Now I don´t know which is cuter…. I think we have two equal winners here!

  15. marishka says:

    I just can’t decide what’s the cutest on this: the tiny honk-shus, the twitchin’ paws, the mommy hug. Whoever filmed and posted this wins the internets.

  16. Oh and also not to forget the firefighter gives kitten oxygen! I think those 3 are now my all time/life favourites… 🙂

  17. Someone posted it on boingboing today with a caveat that the extreme cuteness might cause “diabeetus”.

  18. omgsofreakincute…*ded*

    this actually made me all teary. and i had to go hug my son.

  19. Elena1030 says:

    I am totes impressed with Momcat’s ability to stretch-swat, pull kitten in close, and snorgle so gracefully — one smooth movement! And the kittaynpawflutters make me all glittery inside. 😀

  20. skippymom says:

    Is this kitten an only child?

  21. omg… so cute

    Slumps into pile of goo at desk.

  22. victoreia says:

    😆 😆

  23. victoreia says:

    Okay, how am I supposed to work after watching that?

  24. victoreia says:

    …..and I think the new Extreme-Cuteness tag should say “diabeetus”!

  25. SlaveToCat says:

    Squeeellll…turns to jello juice.

    Hopefully mom loosens up the hug and lets little kitteehh breath.

  26. I’ve been a loyal follower for a long time, and this might be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen (besides my cat’s post a few years ago).

  27. I think this came just a h-a-i-r from breaking the internet…

    [Squee! Squeeeeeee!]

  28. I’m speechless….. honestly speechless…. i’m dead. Too cute!!!!! AAAHHHH

  29. caitlin says:

    Oh my gosh. I love the goofy, silly, punny things y’all post, but it’s refreshing to see such pure, unadulterated sweetness!

  30. The internet is now over. Go home folks, nothing left to see here.

  31. thank you CO. I needed that after the day I had at work today. Now I can start my weekend off right.

  32. I bet you are to Chloe.

  33. I can’t believe how human-looking that hug was!


  34. kittens not kids says:

    this is the way to World Peace: just sit all potential combatants down, and play this on a huge screen. on a loop. perhaps intercut with Surprise Kitty. Then return to this. Perhaps accompany with soft lullaby music (instrumental only).
    Potential Combatants will become too squeeeeemush to continue fighting. Hugs all around; everyone goes home and snorgles kittens or puppies and they all live happily ever after.

  35. Whenever you say the term ‘diabeetus’ your best Wilford Brimley voice.

  36. Whenever you say the term ‘diabeetus’ you should use your best Wilford Brimley voice.

  37. How is CO ever going to top this?
    Too too freaking cute !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. Jimbeaux says:

    On a day in which I could really use a hug myself, this helped.
    I have to ask, though… Chased by penguins? What’s wrong with that? I’d let the pengies catch me!

  39. I was wondering the same thing. I think the only option is to go home now, since I am but a pile of mush after watching that. What a gorgeous mom and a totally delicious kitten!

  40. Mom's Favorite says:

    I felt the same way. We have achieved Maximum Cuteness, people. It’s over. Our study of Cuteology is complete, and everyone graduates with honors.

    Will the last person to leave the internet please shut off the lights.

  41. bookmonstercats says:



  42. sunnylessmum says:

    I second that motion!!

  43. Well, when the penguins are three times your size, it’s a leetle scary.

  44. I thought the same thing. I love the sweet lip-smackin’ action. So content.

  45. Soooo snugggly. Love this.

  46. That is one lucky lil baby.

  47. A. Non! says:

    The hug . . . it has slain me.

  48. shadowsong says:

    it’s the floppiness of the paws during the twitching that really gets me. that makes me laugh the same way pollen up my nose makes me sneeze – i just can’t help it.

  49. First time I watched this video it made me burst in to tears from the pure sweetness of it.

  50. sara-bell says:

    Love eet! But Kitty-Mom ‘broke’ the kitten – you can see it start in on an “Awwww Moooom!!” wiggle right as the clip ends.

  51. Fird Birfle says:

    AND “snorgling axis” (and/ or “belleh”)

    AND [not actualleh “tinee” but] Tabbee….. (Where’s TUM?)….and also, while I think it might not be among the Offish Rules of Cuteness, there are a significant quantity of orunj-cat-o-philes here @ CO, so that would be an additional contendere…..

  52. I third that motion !!!

  53. Fird Birfle says:

    oops susanna DID already mention axis/ snorgling but
    I was so Jazzed I di-unt slow down long enough to “check myself” sowwy …:(

  54. Fird Birfle says:

    @ victoreia: at least Mike was merciful enough to post this on a FRIDAY …
    Just imagine the shrapnel & debris all over the innernets, had this been posted at 9:30 on a Monday morning????

  55. Fird Birfle says:

    *Wipes up kittyadventures, ever so gentleh, onto a lace hanky.*

    *Carefully dons Library Lady Cat’s-Eye Rhinestoned Spectacles*
    *Begins researching reconbinant DNA, reincarnation and other topics by which to revive kittyadventures, in some form or another….*

  56. REEKING. 😀

  57. Don’t get me wrong; this is THE cutest video evar…

    … but am I the only one that gets annoyed when people don’t know how to use the focus button on their cameras? Or resort to using their phones to take pictures or movies? (Any cheap digital camera will take better pictures/videos than a phone can!)…
    … sorry to disturb the happy cuteness vibe….

  58. marishka says:

    This video has had about a million views on YouTube in the last four hours. I think I might be responsible for about 150,000 of those…

  59. Ali-baba says:

    I fourth it to infinity times elebenty! 😉

  60. IT is just that they are too close to the kitty… most cameras want you to be about 5 feet away or more. Which is pretty close but sometimes you just want to be closer.

  61. THE Diabeetus.

  62. They just showed this on NBC Nightly News, so I had to log on to be sure CO had the whole thing! My two marmies often wrap a paw over each other when they sleep side-by-side and now I shall have to get a camera and watch them and wait. Because clearly there’s nothing else to see on the internet–as someone above said, it’s DONE! Mission: Accomplished!

  63. OMG! Cuttest thing I’ve ever seen!

  64. Great Aunt Kitty says:

    Oh little marmie kitten wrapped in a mommy’s love….

  65. wuyizidi says:

    And all without having to open her eyes it seems (her head was out of frame for 3 seconds so can’t be sure).

  66. wuyizidi says:

    For some of us this is what we need to watch in order to continue working.

  67. I… I can’t even look at it. It’s too much cuteness.

    *plays video again*

  68. Noelegy says:

  69. this should go under the heading of Happy Mothers Day!!!

  70. What I want to know is how on earth the person filming was able to suppress the “aaaawwww” that escapes the lips of all who watch this video.

  71. I said the same thing!!! Well, okay, what I *actually* said when I posted it on FB was:

    “Squee–squeeee…wait, what’s Mama doing…—-? *gasp* SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! I think I woke my neighbours. Cutest. Thing. EVER. Right up there with Surprised Kitty!”

    The hubby is not as amused as I am. *sigh* They just don’t get it.

  72. Fird Birfle says:

    *Applies Hello Kitty Defibr….[spelled it wrong last time & am not presently patient enough to look up the correct sp!!]

    *Tucks bookmonstercats, into next available bed in the QteEmergency Ward*

  73. Fird Birfle says:


    Once this story gets to about the 1:00 mark, it suddenly becomes something that should be filed in a WTF file folder [ a GOOD WTF follder]????

  74. hrhqueencat says:

    MOLOLOL !!! good for you, Marishka 🙂

  75. Calamity Jane says:

    I hit replay about 30 times, then I’ve been trying to re-create with my marmie Nemo. He won’t lie on his back or flap his paws, but he loves the hug.

    This is honestly about the cutest video ever.

  76. There’s that saying that the best camera is the one you have on you. Sometimes when the cute happens, you have to capture it ASAP, rather than hunt down a regular camera.*

    * Assuming you even own one.

  77. So nauseatingly cute that I just wanna hurl.

    Of course the hurl would be rainbows, but still.

  78. JenDeyan says:

    Well, I hope you’re happy now! I will have absolutely no brain-power for the rest of the weekend. There should be laws against this level of cute!!!

  79. victoreia says:

    Very true, Fird!

  80. Blossom says:

    Just amazing! Thank you @Noelegy for posting that! Wow!

  81. Krista T says:

    I died… Now I am set for the long weekend!

  82. OMG you´re so right. After Surprise Kitty, Firefighter gives Oxygen to Kitten and now THIS…. this has got to be the ultimate, final level of cute ever….

  83. If it is, then it´s a lucky kitten cause it gets ALL of mummy´s hugs and doesn´t have to share them with anyone!

  84. I fifth it! 😉 This video could possibly bring about World Peace!

  85. Hehe, you´re as bad as me, but that´s cause I´m a photographer i.e. *perfectionist* and very picky. In this case though… I wasn´t. I was too overwhelmed by Qte.

  86. That was beautiful. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  87. I was at the pub last night and me and a couple of friends watched this video 3 times in a row on my mobile phone (squeeing and turning into puddles of goo – at least *I* was!), and I was told that people who were not normally into cute stuff like this had reposted it on Facebook – we´re talking real macho men who don´t normally like stuff like this. 😉

  88. I feel we have reached cute nirvana; cutevana if you will.
    I wonder how many million people including myself submitted this yesterday?

  89. . . . and a new pinnacle of cuteness is reached.

  90. How about when baby kissed mommy’s eye at .56?

  91. Kallisto says:

    Penguins chasing me?

  92. You’re so right! I was like “SQUEEEE!!” and “Awwwwwww!!!” and “did you see!?!? did you see?!!” and all he could say was, “*sigh*, yes, Rach, I saw.”

    Well 😛 to you too then! *pouts*

  93. How the videographer is so quiet is mind boggling. I doubt any one of us could have done that without sploding.

  94. This is quite possibly the cutest post ever. My husband even oohed and aahed!

  95. Showed this to my husband last night, and even he let out a loud Awwww (before he realized what he was doing and tried to play it off :P), and he does not aww at anything lol.

  96. A higher bar has been set for cats worldwide. They mutter and scowl to themselves, knowing they’ll never be able to top that cuteness.

  97. Snurfles says:

    OK, you just made me cry. That was beyond sweet!

  98. 6th! At last: the true way to peace- kittayn huggys!

  99. MOLOLOL? What?

  100. WARNING

    Do NOT view this video in a public location such as a coffee shop. Unless you don’t mind all conversation around you stopping, and everyone turning to look at you because of the ear-splitting squee that erupted out of your mouth.

    Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything… >.>

  101. chanpon says:

    Stop flailing, baby, and just go to sleep. Mom demands it…..zzzzz…..

  102. That is the most loving thing I have seen all week, I just loved the way the mother huged it’s baby it makes you want to go hug someone like pass the hug or something like that, I also think it shows the real love there is between mother cat and baby you can’t get any better showing of mother and kitten bond between the kitty family

  103. Noelegy says:

    I really want to name a cat “Noodle” someday. 🙂

  104. Noelegy says:

    I have the diabeetus and now I can feel my blood sugar shooting through the roof.


  105. Beg to differ. They most certainly did not show it. In fact, Brian Williams said, “We’re not going to show you this video of a cat hugging her kitten because we’re a serious newscast.” They also didn’t show the video of a cat interrupting its human as he practiced a speech, and they absolutely didn’t show a beagle catching a ball between its paws. Such a thing would be beneath their dignity, I’m sure.

  106. flutter-by says:

    So beautiful, it does reduce one to weeping rainbow tears and melting into a gooey blorp of contented, sweet glitter!

    Surely is teh pinnacle (as someone already mentioned) of cuteness!

  107. I´ve never left any comments here before, but I just have to say that hug was my biggest “awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww” moment of the year… 🙂

  108. My head basically exploded from CUTE OVERLOAD!!!

  109. LOL

  110. Good thing that little one is flexible :o)

    That was so adorable!

  111. Charlotte H says:

    I’m glad I sent this in. *swoon, <3*

  112. cubbybutt says:

    this vid is the secret to achieving world peace

  113. …something in my eye…snfl

  114. It’s up to almost 8 million views on YouTube – are we sure it isn’t from Japan?

  115. Aaaww. I want a hug from mommy cat too!

  116. AWW 😀 That has to be the SWEETEST video I have ever seen on CuteOverLoad 😀

  117. That is so mega cute, there’s nothing like a big cuddle from Mommy 🙂 Awwwww

  118. Jay in Oregon summed it all up at the start.
    Your work is done C.O.
    Perfection in a moment. No more. No less.

  119. Violeta says:


  120. At first I was all like, “D’aaawwwwww, sweet paw-dream-twitching.” And then Ma Kitty pulled that little orangie in for a hug and I squealed at a pitch dogs several states over could probably hear.

  121. Fenriss says:

    Really? My husband cried.

  122. Empressgoth says:

    Okay Stop it Stop it now! (Danger Zone) Cuteness OVERLOAD!

  123. 7th times googleplex!

  124. Kaptain Kitty says:

    They are just worried that if they showed it, there would be instant world peace from all the “awwwwwwww” s and *HUGS* and there would be nothing left to report
