Kitteh in sunbeam
Bathed in warmth the entire day
Til the sun goes down
“This is my Kitty coming out of the dark side to enjoy some sun induced sleep. Kitty’s name is well…Kitty! You see, she was named by my roommate’s 3 year old and it was either that or Princess Fiona :).” -Izabela S.
Just a reminder, Thing One is male gray and Thing Two is the female calico. (As a bonus, the hovers are done in Google Translate style. IE, if Guremike had spoken these words as captions on the website, this would be how GT
mangles deciphers them.)
(*No Google Translates harmed in the creation of this post.)
I’ll be right back. Just gotta go dig up the neighbor’s flower garden. C’mon, you KNOW u love me.
This is Roxy, from Lisa L., who we greatly envy. She says “Worlds cutest dog” and I can’t see a reason to disagree.
“This is JUST too moische!” -Cuteporter Margaret R.
“And seriously, all cuteness aside, how cool is it that we are still discovering new species on such a crowded little planet? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Mother Nature is a badass.” -Cuteporter Nicole K.
Ever heard of an Olinguito? Neither has anyone else! NBC News Science says: “The Olinguito, described as a cross between a house cat and a teddy bear, is the first new carnivorous mammal identified in the Western Hemisphere in 35 years, and it’s considered one of the cutest scientific finds in recent memory.” More from the guys who discovered this little knucklehead right heah!

Not all of Sacramento’s Fat Cats are in the Capitol Building. Please say hi to Norm Lopez! Norm accidentally ended up at the Sacramento Front Street Shelter when a stranger mistook him for a pregnant cat in distress. A shelter employee recognized Norm and he was soon reunited with his owner. As a result, Norm now has instant Internet Cult Hero Status- he’ll be hosting a pub crawl August 31st to benefit the shelter!
CO caught up last night with Norm’s Official Hoomin, and we asked Tyler Lopez about his name. Why Norm? “Sounds like a big boy name- it just suited him!”

Japan is just piling on at this point.
We featured Tama several years back. Tama is “Super Station Master and Operating Officer at Kishi Station in Kinokawa, Wakayama Prefecture, Japan.” From FB.
To boldly nap where no cat has napped before!
“You don’t need to be a ‘Trekkie*’ to love this cat tree. If you use this I’m Gigi- keep the cute stuff coming! (The cat is not mine, his name is Saavik according to the web site. I was looking for a cat tree for my cats when I found this amazing one.)”
(*Everyone knows that’s a Romulan Bird Of Prey down below, duh.)
From Cuteporter Vanessa S: “A group of us were asked to take photos at the Durham Humane Society in Whitby, Ontario, Canada, to use at a fundraiser being held for the shelter in November of this year.” (Note: date TBD.)
“I took my Sony A57 camera & a handful of peacock feathers and ventured into the cat rooms.”
“The shelter uses a more open concept- a communal, living arrangement for the cats which includes a completely enclosed outside area off each of the rooms.”
“It really is a relaxed atmosphere for everyone.”
“They could really use some donations since they suffered a tragic fire a few years back.”
