“Here’s our ResQte Kitteh Jasper, doing his best to make Snorgling seem like a good idea. But it’s a trap! Touch the belleh at your own risk!” Submitted/photo taken by Lise C., Risk Taker and Loyal Servant.
1. Pick kitteh up gently.
2. Swivel kitteh’s butt into your palms so he/she sits snuggly and safely.
3. Raise kitteh up to nose level.
4. Insert nose into nape of kitteh’s neck and begin the kitteh huffing/snorgling process.
5. Repeat as necessary.

We’ve all done it.
You see a cute puppeh or kitt-tayns or even an OMGPONIES!!!!1 and you must SNORGLE it, STAT!
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.”

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.
*Nerds the world over united to tell us that it’s spelled MacLeod. The more you know!
After some kisses, me and the Missus were ready for bed.

Still not big enough for mom.
I love a good sequel, Mindy P. We’ll be sure to check in at Save Elephant Foundation to keep up with Navann’s hijinks!
It’s a Gookie!
Katherine P. introduces us to “Gu (pronounced Goo) and Giblet. Gu has the squishy face, and Giblet is the little grey kitten.” Now if we could just get Gu to play the harp and honk a horn! Unfamiliar with Harpo Marx and the Gookie? go here.
Whoops! That’s not Jimmy Durante, that’s baby Colobus monkey, Kivuli. My bad.
Here she is hanging out with her mom,

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.”
