Rule Of Cuteness #97

This is a rare Rule. It’s so rare, I didn’t know that it existed. And it was created precisely a year ago. Who knew? Well, I did. But I forgot. So here it is, Rule of Cuteness #97.

HEAD TO BODY RATIO: If your head is exponentially larger than the rest of your entire body, that’s cute.

Taken at Saving Grace Rescue. From The Furrtographer, who adds “That’s Murcy. She was born with twisted hind legs that just stick out behind her and kind of lay there. It doesn’t bother her at all and she was adopted recently from Saving Grace.”

[To be fair, C.O. Facebook commenter Bruno G. spotted this Rule. Bruno BTW, il y a une lacune dans les règles parce que je ne sais pas pourquoi. -Ed.]

Grumpy Side-Eye Action!

IMG_0178I do believe that Sunny is giving us just a LITTLE bit of attitude. Maybe it’s because there’s a toaster nearby.

Really.

“Hi Cute Overload team, this is my cockatiel Sunny, looking like a little weirdo while napping with her foot tucked in. She is terrified of toasters and loves lentils. A complex creature.
Even if you don’t post hope you enjoy the pics! Thanks for your fantastic website!” -Jill S.

[PS: We did, and we do! -Ed.]

SOMEONE Is Geeked To See Grandma Again

Zoey missed Grandma. Zoey goes to the moon when she sees Grandma.

[Careful with the speaker volume on this one. Z goes bananas. So to speak. -Ed.]


From Barb and Paul, who are patiently waiting for the Cute.

Turn Up Your Speaker Volume

Just do it. Right now. Turn ’em up. QUICKLY.

You’ll just have to trust us on this one.

Throwback Thursday

Disapproving Sproingers

AUGUST 26, 2011 by MEG

The Stylist is reporting there is Bunneh Jumping Contests going on over in Jean, Germany…


They report: “Originally a Scandinavian sport, each competing rabbit hops over a variety of miniature sized jumps, and each rabbit is scored based on how many jumps they clear.”

OOOOF:


Nothing in the rules says these buns can’t both jump AND disapprove of said jumping.

According to the story, the white bunny “Snoopy” was the clear winner, jumping around 60cm high. That’s twelve Cute Overload Calendars stacked on top of each other, People.


I also gotta give props to this disapproving bun who is all disapproving but ‘ehn!’ at the same time:


And then manages to clear THE WATER JUMP LULZ!

ResQte Of The Week III: Ooo Ooo Ooo, We Loff U

[The header will make sense once you read the comments from Judy D. below. -Ed.]

“This is Millie. She was abandoned in a casino parking lot in Laughlin, NV with her 4 siblings and her Mama. The babies were only two days old!! Some good people brought them over to Arizona to be rescued. My husband and I were able to adopt her. In fact, they were all adopted to forever homes, even Mama!!” :)

“She is 5 months old now, and about 4 1/2 lbs.”

“She got her name for “millimeter” because she’s so tiny…”

“…and “Milli Vanilli” because she’s like vanilla ice cream!”

ResQte Of The Week II: Eleven Little Ducks Went Swimming One Day

Oops! Looks like they swam the wrong way.

The kindness of strangers rescued the pack.

And all eleven ducks said, “Quack, quack, quack.”

“Eleven ducklings trapped in a storm drain are alive and well thanks to two alert Mount Vernon residents and a resourceful crew with the city’s fire department! “Thanks to their diligence and selflessness, an entire family of ducklings was saved from nearly certain peril,” said Jeff Brown with Skagit County Washington Search and Rescue.

Rest of the story over at KOMO News. Thank you to Susan H., who says, “Hi! Here’s a great story about 11 ducklings rescued by the Mt. Vernon (WA) fire department. More candidates for the Men of CO calendar, methinks!! P.S. I love that they blocked the entire lane for the rescue!”

The Return Of Kemosabe

This chirpy little whackadoodle will make your day. Meet Kemosabe, the Prehensile-Tailed Porcupine, or “Coendou.”

If you missed him last summer, here he is at Animal Wonders in Missoula, Montana, clutching/nomming his favored papaya with his keeper, Jessi Knudsen Castaneda. When he’s not stuffing his prodigious belleh, he “gives educational presentations about his unique species, wildlife, and conservation,” according to his YouTube video clip bio.
