Year In Cute 2009: Owche

When our ani-pal friends get an owie, Cuteologists respond with an outpouring of concern, which sometimes takes the form of uncontrollable giggling.  Below, a sampling of Cute or Sad? moments for 2009 (click pictures to see original posts).

Make Mine a Double

One of the most popular new drinks that the beautiful people enjoyed over the holidays is called the “Scotch Surprise.” It’s very simple, really — see recipe below:

2 jiggers Smirnoff vodka
Dash of Macallan Scotch whisky
Shake well and strain into glass
Garnish with herbs
Enjoy while kitteh pounces on you from top of cupboard.

Will you be my designated driver, Heather H.?

Thank You For Flying Air Lamb

We’ll be sproinging at an altitude of approximately three feet. Please fasten your seatbelts, and note that the captain has turned on the “no bleating” sign.

And if you look over to your right, you may be able to see a C.O.X.C.U…

Buh-bye now, Melissa W.

Year in Cute 2009: Isn’t It Romantic?

We continue our look back at 2009 fondly—make that fondlingly—with a salute to snorgling:  Interspecies, intraspecies and intra-whatever. (Click pictures to view original posts. Parental guidance suggested.)

C.O. CyberCelebrityWatch!

And from the “Where Are They Now” file:  Internet trendsetter Happycat has revealed that he is hooked on grass.  The cheeseburger-craving feline, credited with touching off the LOLcat craze, made the revelation on a recent episode of “Oprah.”

LOL @ yr cat Purry, Shellie A.

Year in Cute 2009: Why Are You Looking at Me Like That?

In 2009, our animal friends didn’t just disapprove — they sneered, snarled, grimaced, glowered, harrumphed and hachhkkthhed.  Behold, a sampling of this year’s charm school dropouts. (Click picture to view original post.)

Has anyone seen my tiger, Hobbes?

THIS JUST IN: Snowboarding Dogs! – UPDATE

[Updated] A cute moment in this year’s Tournament of Roses Parade is a float featuring snowboarding bulldogs.  In this rehearsal video, the pups get some practice:

Update; here’s what the float looked like at the Tournament of Roses Parade, this just in from Priscilla W:

Check out the lil’ haus that brings the pups back up the hill:

Party Animal

Oh man, I really tore it up at the office party this year.  I told my best jokes, and I danced with all the ladies from Accounts Payable (ooooohh yeeeeeaaaah…).

I might have had just a teeny bit too much to drink, though…

Awww, he looks like a little angel when he’s passed out, Alison D.

THIS JUST IN: Knewly Knobbular Knees

Baby New Year showed up a little early at the Niabi Zoo in Illinois, in the form of this wobbly new giraffe born December 27.  The boy, about six feet, 150 pounds, was born a few days earlier than expected, but the little feller is doing just fine, and will greet the public when the zoo reopens next May.  Until then, he’ll bond with Mom, and do lots of fun giraffe-type activities, such as running around, flicking his tail, eating hay, nibbling leaves on trees (well, the shorter trees, anyway), or maybe take up a nice hobby, like stamp collecting, which can be a rewarding way to pass the time during the long winter months, because you also learn the history behind each stamp.  I recall I had a full set of 60′s-era state flag stamps as a boy; sadly, they were lost in a family move, but anyway…
