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.

Two Cute!

Two different, sweet, little kittens; two poses each.

It takes two to make a thing go right, so here you go!





Brooke B. named her grey kitty McCloud, "as in Duncan McCloud* of the Clan McCloud* of the Highlands of Scotland of the TV show Highlander fame", and Ashley H. named her ginger kitty Rocky - Ashley didn't say why she named him Rocky, but he is a knockout.

A Place to Weather Any Storm

When you're having a bad day and nobody understands or if the winds and rain just won't quit, get under the covers and snug up where it's warm and safe. It's even better when someone you love is under there with you.

Just remember, nobody likes a Dutch oven.

Sender inner Amy writes that this photo was "taken during Hurricane
 Sandy when there was no heat or electric. My little long coat chihuahua 
Lola and I stayed warm by hiding under the covers. Lola was very brave during the storm."

Let’s See What’s Happening in the Lunchroom
