Spring Forward, Fall Down

Just a reminder, U.S. cuteologists: Daylight Saving Time began today at 2 AM, so be sure to set your clocks ahead one hour (and shift your bed about six inches to the ri… oops, never mind).

Don’t be late, Neopatra!

Owl Rightie, Then

This video is so hootin’ cute it’ll spin your head around. Where do we sign up to give head scritchies to owlets? Is there, like, a waiting list or something?

And Don’t You Forget It

Orville Poindexter…


…Toilet Plunger Sitting Champion of 1963.


And he’s been there ever since. (gently picks off cobweb)


Sender-Inners Kate and Jeff have the interesting back story here: “So it’s 6 am Friday morning, and we’re sleeping off the Thanksgiving dinner, when we awake to the doggie door flapping and a squeak. This is our occasional wake-up call, unfortunately. Our foster kitty, Rook, is of that just-older-than-a-kitten age, and learning to hunt. She likes to bring in her prey so she can play with it in the comfort of home. We don’t appreciate her gifts, so we always chase them down ourselves, catch them, and release them back outside—they’re usually unharmed, besides being scared.

I get up to find the mouse, and fairly quickly realize that Rook had brought it into the bathroom. This is good. Less places to hide in there. I shoo Rook out of the bathroom and close the door, then go get a tupperware dish to catch it in. When I get back into the bathroom, I look in all the obvious hiding places, but don’t
immediately see it – until I look near the commode. There sits the mouse, not cowering behind the toilet, but up on top of the plunger handle.

I’m glad I got photographic evidence, otherwise I wouldn’t believe it.

Beer Me!

I love how otters have that built-in shelfie—perfect for Superbowl beverages.

No Exit Strategy Whatsoever

Remember this Boston Terrier troublemaker named Frito? Frito is the one seated, for the moment, at right, until he gets to CAT SNORFING

Well Frito is back! And now at the park. No cats were harmed making this video.

Nice camerawork, Ryan S.!

The Tiniest Porker

He’s smaller than a cat, he can’t climb stairs! He just wants to be loffed.

Some folks have yet to meet the most anerabuhl house pig in the world. For those folks, here you go:

Mischa M. reminded moi about this one and it’s an overdue Encore Presentayshe™.

Top Ten Cutest Videos of 2011

Instructions: 1. Press play; 2. Go “awww”; 3. Repeat.

#10: Sleepy Puppy Talking
Sure, a talking porcupine is exotic, but this cute little pup has a bigger vocabulary. As sender-inner Brinke G. recommended, turn up your speakers for this one.

#9: Not Such a Hot Idea
Tired of the outdoor heat, Gus attempts a spur-of-the-moment home remodeling project, but his attempt to install an indoor pool hits a small snag…
#8: Cookie the Tickled Penguin
A number of commenters said that Cookie may have been feeling more amorous than tickled, but his giggling at the end of this video is cute all the same.
#7: Who knew? Pudú!
In which we meet the adorable Pudú, the world’s smallest deer. And then we meet the world’s smallest Pudú. And then we stare at the screen, helplessly drooling.
#5: Kittens! In! Bowls!
Always the innovators in cuteness, our friends the Japanese scientifically settle the question: If you put a bunch of bowls on the ground, will kitties want to get in them?
#4: Caution: Advanced Cuteness Ahead
OK, people, now we move on to the hard stuff. Surely you remember Cricket, the adorable feline fuzzball? Well, look out, here it comes again!
#3: Knut: A Retrospective
In 2011, the world said goodbye to Knut, the polar bear who captured their hearts just four years before, and his caregiver, Thomas Dörflein. Cuteologists paid their respects in this thread.
#2: Sloth’s Inaction
Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! Can your heart stand the low-speed, pulse-not-pounding excitement of these cute sloths? Thrill as they share a string bean! Gasp as they tip over with a stuffed toy! We’ll sell you the whole seat, but you’ll only need the edge!
#1: Just your Run-of-the-mill-kitten-dolphin-snorgle…
What a letdown. Here we go to all the trouble of compiling a list of best videos, and the number one slot goes to the same ol’ “kitten plays with dolphin” vid. I hate to complain, but some subjects on the Internet just get done to death, y’know?
