“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.

The Adventures O’ Thing 1 And Thing 2 (Cont.)

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.)

This is Roxy, from Lisa L., who we greatly envy. She says “Worlds cutest dog” and I can’t see a reason to disagree.

Why is Sweetie Smiling?

As if being a ruthless super cute snooglypoof fluffcake wasn’t enough?

“My Sweetie has one of the sweetest smiles in the world. She had a spectacularly rough start in life, so the fact that she smiles at all is a wonder and a daily joy to me. Even doped up after massive surgery to both of her back legs, she still had a hint of a smile for us. She’s my best friend. I’m her favorite hoomin.” -Liz Lintel

Wizard of Oz, the Pixar Version?

This is what there would be if the munchkins and the flying monkeys got together.

Is There Something in Particular You Wish?

Lemme guess. I can see it in your eyes, right now you wish to feed a red-ruffed lemur slices of yuh-huuummy banana.

Wild Thing, U Make Our Hearts Sing

“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!

Sacramento’s Answer To Maru: NORM!

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!”

Is The 10:15 Running Late, Tama?

Japan is just piling on at this point.

“Please, please consider adding this to the Japan Cute Assault arsenal: Tama the cat saved the train line AND spawned a cat-themed train!” -Amy H.

We featured Tama several years back. Tama is “Super Station Master and Operating Officer at Kishi Station in Kinokawa, Wakayama Prefecture, Japan.” From FB.

Nuts, the plush Tama stuffies are out of stock. Maybe you’d like the book instead? (Of course there’s a book.)
