Theirs is but to Make Us Le Sigh

Ours is not to wonder why.

Kelly G. writes, “This is my adorable Sharpei, Roscoe, sleeping with my cat, Little Brittle (formerly known as Itty Bitty). This is proof that cats and dogs can live together in harmony. By the way, I rescued Brittle after my brother found her meowing outside of his bedroom window last winter. She was abandoned by her mother and had to be bottle fed until she was big enough to eat on her own. Now she’s part of my furry family and BFF’s with the best dog friend a cat could ask for.”

Incoming! Duck!

Run for your lives! It’s an incoming duck! So you’d better duck! Because it’s incoming! And… it’s a duck. See, it’s kind of a joke, because I say “incoming duck” and then I say “incoming” and “duck” and… OK, I’ll be quiet now.

Claudia writes: I’m a big fan of your site for a long, long time, and I finally decided to try to achieve fame for my baby big boy Garfield. We got him 5 months ago. We had just lost our 13 year old beautiful girl cat Nikita to cancer, and less than a week later someone abandoned a litter of 3 baby marmies close to where I lived. We were able to adopt one and help find a home for the other 2. He was so malnourished that even though he was about 2 months old he weighted just 400 grams and could fit in the palm of my hand. He was a little ball of fur and fleas, and had a cold and an ear infection. Attached pictures with a new hair style (I couldn’t resist the bad boy look it gave him.)

Here’s a video of the little one shortly after his first bath, when we finally got him rid of all the fleas:


That was the first time he slept without the damn fleas disturbing him, and only then did we realize how much energy he had. Even today he seems to always run everywhere, jump, play, he’s really adorable and a very handsome boy.

NBC News.com says there’s a reason for that. (Thanks to Cuteporter Michele R. for the story tip.) In this article, they say “New research finds that seemingly strange aggressive responses to cuteness are actually the norm.” The story goes on to quote study researcher Rebecca Dyer, a graduate student in psychology at Yale. “We think it’s about high positive-affect, an approach orientation and almost a sense of lost control,” said Dyer. “You know, you can’t stand it, you can’t handle it, that kind of thing.”

Um, Duh.

♪ ♫ Original Red Solo Cup ♪ ♫! Leah H. says, “We were so delighted when CO featured Scrappy back in June! Scrappy is still a little mischief maker. She likes to wrestle and play, and she still has the crazy eyebrows! Scrappy’s owners have responded very well to their cat training. They are now wrapped completely around her little paw. One of Scrappy’s favourite games is to hide and wait for unsuspecting feet to pounce on. Her owners tried putting a bell on her so it would be easier to find her when she hides (especially when she’s outside) but Scrappy wasn’t very pleased with that. It really interfered with her bird hunting. Photos by Lorraine H.
