Caturday Morning: Maru Does Boxes HIS Way…

[…and I do ’em MY way. I KNOW they can’t see me, ‘neither.]

“This is my cat, Penny, not really getting how Hide and Seek works. Thanks so much! Love, love, love C.O.! Your devoted fan, Julie B.”

Happy Caturday Birthday, Bertster!

(OK, this is a few days late, but Happy Birthday to ya anyway, big guy!)

“Hi! Here’s a photo of my exotic shorthair, Bert, on his 7th birthday wearing a cupcake crown. He clearly loves it.” -Becky.

[He does? How can you tell? -Ed]

Hello, May I Come In Please?

There’s nothing quite like a polite mouse. When he wants in, Grisu doesn’t pound on the door or anything, no. He’s much more…refined.


Now THIS Is The Way To Cool Off!

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.

Lucy In The Sky…With Milk-Bones™?

“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.]

Let’s Visit A Rarely Used Rule: (#46)

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!”

Totally on the mark there, J.P. Let’s see some of your other photos too:




I’ll Have One Shiba Inu, Please.

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

I Think I Lost Her

There was this giant following me, so I climbed to the top of this tree to keep an eye on her, and now I don’t see her anymore! Well, that’s a relief.


Jen Knoedl wants to know: “Do I have something in my hair?”

Friday Haiku: Snail Tales

Meet at the tree stump
We’ll swap tales and tell lies
Til the evening comes

“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.]
