Quite A Handful

Australia MAY just take The Big J’s place in our Global Cute Hierarchy. (And there wasn’t even such a thing. Until now.) When you realize The Big A has QuokkasWombats…AND Koalas; well…whadya think? The Big J…or The Big A? (Although we’ll knock some points off The Big A for those horrendous big ol’ honkin’ spiders.)

Quokka Qousins?

“With all the Quokka Love on this site lately, I thought I would submit a competitor for smiling rodent-like creature: the Tree Hyrax! They’re not actually rodents, and are somehow related to manatees and elephants,” says Megan C. of Seattle.

[Pause to work that one out.]

“Photos taken by me in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. I regret not attempting a Selfie with a Hyrax, but they were not as camera-friendly as those Quokkas seem to be.”

They’re B-a-a-a-a-ck

Unfortunately, Meg has not (yet) approved my airfare to Australia to meet the Quokkas for some Selfies. While I cross my fingers and pack, please amuse yourself with this Follow-Up Quokka Qollection from My Modern Met.

The Air Fare Is How Much???

MEMO TO: Meg.

RE: Australian trip to take some Quokka Selfies!!!
________________________________________________________________________________________

Things I need for the trip. 1) Apple iPhone 6. 2) Two round trip plane tickets SFO to Perth Airport. I know it’s steep– just write it off, mwah mwah mwah. 3.) Gonna travel light, will pick up a few clothing items when we land at Perth. Will take a MacBook Pro in order to post (Oops, will need one of those, too. Can I just pick both up at Cupertino?) We’ll take the ferry to Rottnest– that’s where a lotta Quokkas are. Should be total amazeballs. LMK. Thx, B.

shutterstock_80614225It’s already time for the OFFICIAL Cute Overload Top Ten Cutest Photos of 2014. As in year’s past, we stuffed all of the year’s data into a vintage Apple II computer, and these are the results! Yeah, there’s more than ten photos here- some posts had multiple images, dig? Thank you to all our Peeps who sent photos in during the year. (Have a photo you’d like to send in? Here’s all you need to do. One week from today- our Top Ten Cutest Videos.)

This Is My “No, I DIDN’T Like That” Look, OK?

We think we’re doing them a favor by giving them a bath, with all sorts of warm soapy water, baby talk, (Now who’s the snookums wookums? YOU are), gently toweling them off, and such.

This is a crucial error on our part. The eventual payback is looming, and either we’re gonna get it, or the curtains will.

[Yes, this has the “Impending Doom” tag. -Ed.]

Happiness IS A Warm Puppeh

Is THIS one of THE PROSHEST faces EVER? Yes. Yes, it is.

Spotted this little maniac on Arbroath. Their headline is “Groucho Barx.” I really wanted to swipe use their headline- sometimes you just can’t improve on that kinda greatness.

Rats! It’s A Teddy Bear Thing

Several years ago, two women decided to start taking photos of Little Ratsos holding Teddy Bears. As Bored Panda notes, they went viral again a few days ago.

OK, Time To Break The Interwebs

THIS JUST IN from Dual Cuteporters Tracey M. and Erin D. This female pup (#681) was found September 30th, on Coastways Beach in Northern California between the San Mateo and Santa Cruz county line. WARNING: This is SO Cute- you should be sitting down. If you fall over from The Cute and smack yer head- not our fault. OK- proceed.

C.O. Hall Of Fame

[Updated 8/25/15:] Cute Overload likes to feature Cute in all shapes, sizes (Look! A kitten!) and types. But as you know, we have our favorites. When you see ’em….ya Squee ’em. Without further delay, we present The C.O. Hall Of Fame. They’re not in any special order- they’re listed as we think of ’em.

We missing any? Let us know!

Patrick The Wombat

Patrick just celebrated his 30th birthday and is showing no signs of slowing down! Welcome to the C.O. Hall of Fame, Patrick!

Norbert
I don’t think we need to go into too much detail as to why Norbert is our newest member of the C.O. Hall of Fame. Gadzooks–look at these videos/photos. This is more than the mind can comprehend. You know, like “How big is the galaxy.” Like that.

The Entire Country of Japan

tama

Yes, the entire country is in. Every. Single. Person. As of last check (2013,) that’s 127.34 million people. Japan occupies a unique spot within the C.O. Culture, since they consistently kick our ass top everyone else when it comes to unconventional Cute. Look no further than this tag: The Big J. Examples? Many, we have.

Puri-Ketsu. You’ll just have to click the link.

Mutant Parrot Bananas. We could not even begin to make this up.

Welcome to Disapproval Island, Mr. Bond.

Hello Kitty Halloween donuts. Awesome.

Furry Teddy Bear Bus.

Disney character USB Butts.. Really.

Hamzilla!

The C.O. Cat Café World Tour was created expressly for Japan. Other guys might sneak in, but J owns it.

Kittens, Doughnuts, and Pancakes.

Pokemon Cars.

Train Stations with Kitteh Station Masters. (RIP Tama, shown above.) 😦

Ninja Hamster Houses. Say that one out loud- sounds redonk.

A Travel Agency…Just For Stuffies.

Milo
Milo. What can you say about this little dude? We’ve covered him extensively on C.O. –one of the all-time greats.

Grumpy Cat
Without question the most popular Internet Cat on the…um, Internet. And we can bet Tardar Sauce (real name) doesn’t care one bit. (In truth, she is one of these teeniest, cuddliest, and softest cats you will ever meet. Just don’t let her know that. Got to meet and pet her at a private media thing at Macy’s S.F. last November- truly a rock star moment. Not kidding. Photos by The Furrtographer, who was there with me. -B.)

Maru
Maru: The Circle. His Royal Girthness. Mugumogu’s Meal Ticket. He’s The Man, and he knows it. This article says Maru’s videos have been viewed over 200 million times. A lot of clicks, friends. He’s been saddled with a new sidekick, Hana. Maru, we all have our crosses to bear. His whole round video history is right here.

Fearless Leader Jay Vitazko
He passed away August of 2013, but Jay lives on in the hearts of all his friends, and on the pages of C.O.

Simon’s Cat
Simon Tofield is a very talented and cat-tormented British artist, and several years ago decided to document his wretched life cat-dominated existence with the Simon’s Cat series.

Teddy Bear
Teddy will gladly obliterate anything you put in front of him, and isn’t shy about sharing his opinion, either. He likes to hang out at Zooniversity, a wildlife education company and exotic animal rescue in Dallas. All Tedster videos live here.

Chris P. Bacon
Chris P. Bacon is a prosh lil’ porker with a lotta heart and the fastest set of wheels in town. Here are all of CPB’s YouTube clips. Partner in Crime of Lentil Bean. (See below.)

Lentil Bean
The Bean gets into the Hall for the sheer WOW Factor of this first photo alone. But then this Fall 2013 photo sesh with Chris P. Bacon sends ’em BOTH into the stratosphere. That’s GOLD, Jerry. GOLD! Known associate of Chris P. Bacon. (Above.)

The virtual definition of the word “Goofball.” Maymo and new pal Penny haven’t met a living room they wouldn’t like to trash. Gleefully. Check out a video or two at Maymo’s YouTube library.

Peacock Spiders
Do whatever you feel.

Wombats!
They get in for the name alone. The big ol’ schnozzles are just a bonus. Plus they’re Australian. Yes, Patrick is in here, but as a solo artist. Sorta like the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame- the Beach Boys are in as a group, but Brian Wilson is also in as a solo artist. Like that.

“When Einstein applied his theory to gravitational fields, he derived the ‘curved space-time continuum’ which depicts the dimensions of space and time as a two-dimensional surface where massive objects create valleys and dips in the surface.” Mwah mwah mwah.
