Check out this Prosh Family O’ Otters! They aren’t just beating the heat, they’re flat out destroying it! It’s a warm one at the Zoological and Botanical Garden in Ichikawa, Japan, don’cha know. Seen on Mail Online.
“This is Lucy, a 3 year old my boyfriend and I adopted two weeks ago from the D.C. area Partnership for Animal Welfare (PAW Rescue.) She came “pre-programmed” with the whole repertoire of Cute Rules and adheres *strictly* to C.O. Rules like “head down, eyes look up” religiously. She was nervous at first but quickly warmed up and is now up to all sorts of insanely cute antics.” -Caitlin R.
[Caitlin gave us the header, too. And Happy late Birthday. -Ed.]
The Rules Of Cuteness exist for the sole purpose of trying to maintain some semblance of order in an otherwise Cute Chaos. It is with that in mind that we present these photos from J.P.S.
“My wife and I took some photos of our friends’ puppies and I think we hit on a few of the rules. Here’s the one for #46: ‘A yin-yang position for two animals is cute.’ My wife and I took ‘em, so they’re all ours (The pictures, not the puppies. Sadly, we’re allergic.) Thanks for all the smiles!”

As spotted on Bored Panda: this small store in Tokyo has one of the friendliest (and furriest) clerks you’ll ever meet!

“Hi, Here is a picture of some snails socialising* on a tree stump this morning in my garden in Thornton Heath aka ‘poor man’s Croydon.’ You may have heard of it on Crimewatch. [Nope. -Ed.]
Many thanks, Andy A.” [*British spelling alert! -Ed.]
This little guy is primed for action. You wanna piece of him? Make yer play, pardner.

[So, let’s see, what to eat…what to eat. OK. I’ll have the Filet Mignon, medium-rare. Hmmm…what looks good, ah! Some home fries with that…a tossed salad with Ranch, ah…and a huge dish of vanilla ice cream I can smash my face down into! And don’t forget the sprinkles.]
“This is Fenway, my 2 year old Pomeranian-Bijon mix (Pomachon.) He may very well be a Muppet. He loves cheese, boys, running into things when he’s excited, and watching Nick Jr. His big Googly eyes are almost as big as his heart.” -Shira H.
“I’m so sick and tired of everyone calling me a dog. ‘Look at that Enid,’ they all say. ‘What a dog.’ So I’m getting my hair done, then a manicure, and then — look out, world, it’s a brand new me!”
