People, We Need A Rule!

FLOOF59And we want you to write it! Here’s the scoop. This post is from earlier today, and in it, Marianne H. mentions “There are some Rules in there..Toe Beans, Toe Floof, Paws Up, Side Eyes.. And General Major Fluffiness.”

The problem? There IS no Rule for Toe Floof! (Or Ear Floof, Whisker Floor, all the Floofs. I mean, I looked! Twice!)

So we want YOU to Write The Rule! It has to be short and to the point and in the general Rule format. It’s gonna be #59, and will have YOUR name on it, too. So get to work! We’ll unveil the New (Your Name Here) Rule at 1pm PT today, and you’ll get your own personalized Rule Certificate, just like the one at left!

From Stockholm With Loff

This is JumJum, the Birma Ragdoll! Marianne H. sent these photos in, and she’s going to tell us all about ’em.

“I just have to share with you the Overload in Cuteness that is JumJum the Birma-Ragdoll. I have the immense perk of getting to cat-sit while his mom and little moms are away. His little moms are called Stella and Sofia (5 and 3) and they’re in Greece now with big mom Josefine helping with the refugee crisis there. Jummy misses them all.”

“JumJum likes licking your eyelid in the morning, doing mad dashes through the apartment, mewing, throwing his toys really high and napping.”

“He lives in Stockholm, Sweden and supports the football (soccer) team AIK.”

“I attach a few pics from our fun together, and I would argue there are some Rules in there..Toe Beans, Toe Floof, Paws Up, Side Eyes.. And General Major Fluffiness! AND watching of Tip and the Dreamworks kittens on the iPad! So you are the supreme judges of course….but isn’t he just Cute Overload?”







The Return Of Blinky McBlinkersons

Remember Blinky McBlinkersons from the summer of 2013? We just saw this video today and decided to relate it to an older one dug deep thru the C.O. archives and came across a home movie from Blinky’s childhood. We think that’s him on the right. Look at ’em gettin’ their splash on and stuff!

On the Road Again

“Oh, yah, retirement’s been good to Larry’n me so far, no complaints. We just got back from visiting my sister in Arizona — oh, it’s so hot down there, don’cha know, don’t know how they stand it. Anyways, we’re gunna swing east before we head home, ’cause Larry wants to visit the World’s Largest Hydrant out’n Oklahoma.”

#Tocktober: A Bit Blurry, But Worth It

image1“Hi C.O.! Ever since my mom visited the National Zoo last week and fell in love with the pandas, we have been checking in on Mei and Bei Bei throughout the day and sending each other the best screen grabs we find. I just opened the cam a few minutes ago and almost immediately the camera zoomed on this amazing set of fuzzy little BEI BEI ‘TOCKS. Clearly the camera operator knows what month it is.” -Megan, Brooklyn, NY.

We’ve got Supreme Goldie Action on the kitchen floor here, with RULE #47 strictly enforced: Splayed haunch action is cute.
