This image covers many cuteness factors; multiple animals, looking helpless (it would be fun to turn the water on) and mimicking humans. Humans love it! I mean, half of America’s Funniest Home videos is based on animals mimicking humans (the only two things better is suddenly scared people falling down or a surprise hit to the groin).

Unless of course it’s an iguana. The best example of this being the rock solid, high-cuteness factor of the Japanese calendars “The Dog” or “The Cat.”
Alert reader Cory Pinter and his girlfriend (who must be fabulous to have suggested sending this photo) sent this Hamster Haus photo. Obviously, this Hamster just woke up from a nap and is stretching, thinking about his morning cup of Joe and side carrot. Brilliant decorating job he’s done…

This is the sound of your brain melting—a fondue caused by a Sears Portrait Studio heathered grey background and the cutest flop-eared helpless kitten ever. Full use of the “Pathetic” camera angle for extra effect. Extra points for the glossy eyes. Look away!

Someone please tell me what GENIUS put *this* photo shoot together. Look at all the factors here: you’ve got FOUR helpless baby animals, many of whom will gladly kill each other once grown, a Hallmark-riffic background, a “conversation” of sorts, lead by a gerbil-like thing. What could he possibly be saying to the others? “I’m the cutest, but my beady eyes are a drawback in this contest?” Simply stunning! Major props.
