Rule Of Cuteness #97

This is a rare Rule. It’s so rare, I didn’t know that it existed. And it was created precisely a year ago. Who knew? Well, I did. But I forgot. So here it is, Rule of Cuteness #97.

HEAD TO BODY RATIO: If your head is exponentially larger than the rest of your entire body, that’s cute.

Taken at Saving Grace Rescue. From The Furrtographer, who adds “That’s Murcy. She was born with twisted hind legs that just stick out behind her and kind of lay there. It doesn’t bother her at all and she was adopted recently from Saving Grace.”

[To be fair, C.O. Facebook commenter Bruno G. spotted this Rule. Bruno BTW, il y a une lacune dans les règles parce que je ne sais pas pourquoi. -Ed.]



  1. wee noisies, ftw.

    and hardwood floors for kittayns with built-in skids, ftw, too

    Um, Brinke? Why does this have a “puppeh” tag? Shouldn’t it be a “kittens” tag?

    (And obligatory “Awwwwwwwwwwww, the poor baby!” squee….)

  3. Aawwwwwwww! What an adorable little kitty!

  4. Ummmmm


    TWO: cute fuzzie-wuzzie

    and/ but Three: ….I’m pretty sure that the Hed/Body Rule wuz there longer than 1 yr ago … I’ll look to see if there is evidence that I’m Wrong….. Wouldn’t be the First Time for dat!!

    , BTW

  5. hmmmmm…. well I tried!!

    It appears that the CuteOverload
    R’s o C have been revamped or re presented differently than they used to be/ look.

    Perhaps the one-year is when the Rules were re structured??

    ah well on to Other Cute Things

    So happy to hear this little cutie got adopted! She looks so much like my bff’s late kitty who had some serious mobility issues too (cerebellar hypoplacia- not sure if I spelled that right). Yay for hoomins who love special needs pets! 🙂

  7. Rachael says:

    There is no Rule of Cuteness that adequately expresses just how adorable this little guy is. I’m so happy he found hoomins who love him for the amazing critter that he is. 🙂

    Also, Fird Birfle is back!!!!! You’ve been missed, sweetie. *hugs*

  8. AWWWWWWWWWW! just to cute.

  9. Emmberrann says:

    Hey, Ms. Birfle. Nice ta see y’all.
    Kitteh is cute as all get out. He jes’ wants ta play play play. Other kitteh is like “you catch it, you faster than me anyways.”

  10. a puppeh tag? [mumbles, shakes head, goes into kitchen for another Dannon Light & Fit yogurt.]

  11. Clairdelune says:

    That face is just too cute!! I am so happy to hear that there are hoomins willing to love a kitteh with special needs. And this sweet kitteh clearly does not think she’s handicapped in any way.

  12. AWW 😀 I am so glad to hear that dear sweet little Murcy has found her loving forever home 😀
