And you thought I was ridiculous

I love it when someone writes and and out-ridiculouses me. This is such a time. Alert reader Carrie G. has just educated me on what she calls "sea urchin belly" a delightful form of fur overflow when her kitteh Scout sits like this:




LOL, girl! L to the O to the L.

Puppies Gone Wild

Did anyone make sure these McSquirmersons signed consent forms before filming?

Nice submishe, Anitachou!

The first ever bat on C.O.

We’re not against bats here at C.O. headquarters. Really. It’s just hard to find a prosh-enough bat to post. Well, those days are over thanks to alert reader Melissa S. Melissa spied this previously "overlooked source of BEF!" from a mile away. I like his little wing nubbins.


Bats off to you <groooooan> Melissa S. ;)

More examples of the Japanese kicking our asses in the cute department

Thanks to eagle-eyed reader (and former fabulous roommate Glenda D.B.) We have yet another example of Japanese-kick-ass-itude on C.O. This time, it’s flower pups. For crying out lou’.





Holy flowery muzzlepuffs, People!

Piglette lips

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never really had the opportunity to study a Guinea peeg’s lil’ face before. I mean, look at lil’ "Lippy" here. what a prosh little nose, and teeniest muzzlepuff evar. She’s like, 60 percent schnozzle.


Tiny, twitching thanks to Tanya H.

Beady, small ears paws-uptitude, but…

Perhaps a new rule of cuteness should be not showing your nads. When I think cute, I def don’t think ‘show your nads’ helps the situation. This is a case where paws are up, eyes are beady, and ears are small, but nads aren’t helpin’. Oh, yeah, that’s gotta be a tail.


Regahdless, Harry D., meer-ci!

Headaches? puffy eyes? Sick of those boring sleep masks?

It’s time to recycle yer old United Airlines napping mask, People. Check out "Warm Whiskers Eye Pillows". Warmed or chilled, these ani-pals will soothe you… (And entertain your friends to no end.)

You’ve GOT to be kidding me, sender-inner Clayton R. Do you have your PAWS ON THE PULSE* or what.The redonkulousness continues at Dream Essentials…



The best part is under the photo, it’s all: "May we suggest complimenting your purchase with a warm whiskers neck wrap?" UH, YES! YOU MAY!

*I did NOT just say that.

Tiny tiger tongued toes

As far as Cute overloading goes, I think having a baby tiger lick your toes might send you into a C.O. coma. Authorities should really look into it as a way to subdue perps.


Thanks to Taylor M. and his girlfriend Kaela who visited a Puerto Vallarta Tiger Reserve and remain in critical (but stable) overload condish.

Let’s give it up for “Cubby”

Besides ROOFEES, "Cubby" is my fave pup over at Dogster. As you may recall, "Cubby" is the spokespup for Rule #1. Let’s check out her Dogster page and see what she’s up to. More cuteness, I presume.


Muchas gras, John V.

Holy McSmokes, Thoma T. Thank you, and thanks for the patience. (Thoma sent this way back in December ’05. Yes, the mailbox is HUGE)
