Rule of Cuteness #13: “Juicy” eyes and noses

…are instantly cute. I submit to you; “Chicken” the Pomeranian. A delightful little fellow, who travels by purse, and delights everyone he meets with his 5 pounds of energetic fluff. He’s the perfect example of a wet nose and eyes. You can almost hear him as he’s whisked away—”Listen, I’ve had it with the close-ups—this show is over!”Chicken_1[Click the image to see the glisten!]Chicken2Thank you, Mary and Daveeda!

Everybody needs a mushroom…

…especially if they also double as fridge magnets.MushroomsThese little ‘shrooms will get you high on cuteness without all the unpleasant chemical aftereffects.Mad props to alert reader Raeanne Pollard, who found these treasures at Fuzzy Town.

Rule of Cuteness #12: Floppy Limbs are Cute

If there’s one thing I know, it’s everybody loves a friendly, floppy, fuzzy limb. We just want to reach out and grab it for some reason. Why do we do that? It may relate to Rule of Cuteness #2; look helpless. Does a floppy limb look ‘helpless’ and need ‘support’? Who knows.DuoLike, check out this floppage from Laura Richmond’s family hamster and “Porkchop’s” lil’ tail from Jen Mulson:

The Ultimate in Chirpy Birdyness

Eastern_phoebe…and now that the high-pitched squeals of cuteness worship have died down, you may be interested to know that the official name for this species is Eastern Phoebe (Sayornis Phoebe). We at Cute Overload pride ourselves on highly educational and informative content. Discovery Channel has nothing on us.This magnificent picture is only a small part of Professor Bill Eddleman’s wildlife photography portfolio.
