Crystal Clear Cute

In this charming animated short for Swarovski Crystal, a classy clique of crystalline cats shows off its multifaceted personalities. Despite the cute kittens, the delightful animation, and the jazzy musical score, we might almost have overlooked this gem, but for its distinguished taste in cat names…

A new crop of kittehs

They can barely eat!

They can barely see!

Their ears are on the sides of their heads!

It’s a new crop of kittehs, and they’re coming your way (in a meandering, meowing, ‘what’s to eat?’ sort of way)

Many thanks to my little cupake Dimitri, Kendra and Ethan for these fine shots.

I Shall Überleeck You

“Oh, yeah… a little more to the left… yesssssss, that’s the spot… now, do the ears… and the other one… ohhhh, that’s the ticket… now, nibble my neck while humming the National Anthem of Uruguay… the album version, not the single… ohhhh, you know what I need, baby…”

Was it good for you, Meghan H.?

GERONIMO!

Dear Diary:  The hardest part of life among humans is their habit of inventing new words.  Just when I learn to respond to “play” and “dinner,” they become “fetch” and “num-nums.”

Just this morning, in fact, as I awaited the customary call of “walkies,” I was briefly puzzled to hear them call it “skydiving” instead.  Ah well, a rose by any other name, right?  More later.

We would love to know what’s really happening in this pic, Nicole B.

Quick! Let’s scurry!
OK, first of all, this is one awesome photograph, Emily M. It’s really beautiful—kinda along the lines of Died and Gone to Heaven. Can’t you imagine that you’re in this field, and this teeeeny bunny comes up to you, and she’s all; “Come with me! I’ll show you the secret bunny burrow—we’ll be safe there! But we must hurry!”

ENCORE: So Cute, It’s Unreal

Way back in the Once Upon, before the world was in color, before time was what turned kittens into cats, it came to pass that our Fearless Leader dispatched this missive across the interwires by high-resolution telegraph, on August the 16th, in the year of two-thousand-and-eight

Puh-lease. Too, too moshe:

black and white?
miniscules and striped?
ear flappage and paw danglage?
