Give It Up For…..Benson! (Updated: Basket Photo By Request!)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAStephanie M. tells us, “This is my little Sheltie pup named Benson. He likes to get into his basket of toys* (who needs to pull them out, when you can get in and chew them all at once?!,) snuggle and just be overall way too cute.” No argument there, Steffer. BTW- allll-most lookin’ at Rule #50 there, too.

Caturday Finnish Kitteh LUMP

unnamed“Hi there! I want to send you pictures of my three cats. The oldest cat is 7 years old Mrs. Lilli, the middle is 6 years old Mrs. Nasu, and the youngest is 5 years old Gray. They live in Kuopio, Finland. They are the most wonderful and funniest cats I know, and often I see here Cute Overload site very similar in appearance to cats. I hope you enjoy the pictures and the good end of the summer to you! Sincerely Elina H. :) The pictures have been taken by me.”

[Note- Are they sleeping in a sunbeam? 'Cuz we definitely have RULE #9 in play.]

Lucy Finds A Home (And A Leash)

There’s nothing better than reading about a Little Furhead that finds a home. Cuteporter Shawn B. says that’s exactly what happened with Lucy, her new kitteh! She says, “Exactly 2 weeks ago we adopted our girl Lucy from the East Bay SPCA (Oakland). She is equal parts snuggly and adventurous, and she loves to follow us everywhere we go.”

“When I told my friends that I was going to try a leash they thought I was crazy (I realize that cats and leashes don’t typically mix,) but it turns out that she loves getting some fresh air with us–and as you can see she’s a big fan of the view! Oh, and I’m throwing in a picture of her sleeping on my lap because c’mon, she’s too Cute!”

[Think we've got Rule #50 there, too. -Ed.]

One Post. FOUR Rules.

Ron and PuffTwo! Two! Two Ferrets In One!

“Dear all, please find attached a picture of my ferrets Ron and Puff (Ron on the bottom and Puff on the top.) They are sleeping (surprise surprise) in their favourite place, in their purple hammock! I do believe that they are covering the following Rules of Cuteness:

#20: Showing your paw pads is cute.
#46: A yin-yang position for two animals is cute.
#49: If you curl up into a circle when you sleep, that’s cute.
#99: Peeping tongues are cute.*

Kind Regards, Kelly, Ron and Puff, BIG fans from England.

[*Note: Don't see the peeping tongues, but we'll let it slide. -Ed.]

IMG_5167“I think this picture I took of my friend’s dog, Scout, is ALMOST worth a new Rule Of Cuteness.” Interesting- what would you propose, Cuteporter Rebecca S.?

Let’s Visit A Rarely Used Rule: (#46)

boxer puppiesThe Rules Of Cuteness exist for the sole purpose of trying to maintain some semblance of order in an otherwise Cute Chaos. It is with that in mind that we present these photos from J.P.S.

“My wife and I took some photos of our friends’ puppies and I think we hit on a few of the rules. Here’s the one for #46: ‘A yin-yang position for two animals is cute.’ My wife and I took ‘em, so they’re all ours (The pictures, not the puppies. Sadly, we’re allergic.) Thanks for all the smiles!”

Totally on the mark there, J.P. Let’s see some of your other photos too:

Thanx To Scooter, We Revisit Rule #96

IMG_1406Last week, we rolled out a new Rule, and it’s proven to be quite pup-ular. To refresh your memory: “If your (or someone else’s) ears or tail cover your face for the purposes of sleeping, that’s cute.”

Damn straight.

“This is my friend’s puppy, Scooter. I think if you were to look up Rule of Cuteness #96, you’d see this pic of Scooter beside it!! There must be another cute rule about “Vogue-ing” for the camera in this second pic.” [Sorry, no Madonna here. -Ed.] -Forever a fan of CO., Ellen F.”
