More Rule #50 Emails Comin’ In!

Rule Of Cuteness #50 has proven to be Quite Pupular! First up, we’ve got Tink. “She is a magical mystery mix who is a master at Rule of Cuteness #50. Here she is as a 7 week old puppy, the day I brought her home. Her Extreme Cuteness must be shared with the world, agreed? I took these pictures.” -Kathy F.

“I have your site on my bookmark bar and I visit every morning as a part of my start of the day routine. Sometimes I even go back to check on new posts later in the day. [Yes! -Ed.] Anyway, here is Ms. Lulu, adopted from Craigslist. She is Queen of the House (no other subjects but me, though.) I took this pic of her executing Rule 50. It sure would be wonderful to see my girl posted on C.O.” -Judy W.

“This is my one-yr-old German Shepard Tázi (Anastacia,) and she loves to spend the Hungarian nights in one of the garden chairs when she thinks nobody can see her and reprimand her. I often find her in the mornings accomplishing the rule #50 (I hope it won’t be a problem not to meet the condition of performing it with the two front legs, but with only a front one and a back one) like on the attached photo.” -Bogi.

Re: Simultaneous Yawning

__________________________

On Wednesday, we theorized that perhaps simultaneous yawning was a rather Rare Cute Phenomenon, and a potential New Rule Candidate. Apparently this is not so. Please see email from Marita below for reference. C.O. regrets this error and apologizes for any inconvenience our post may have caused. -Us

“Simultaneous yawning: not as rare as you believe :)
For proof see attached picture. (Showing my cat Princess and her brother Moppi (he went over the Rainbow Bridge last year but will remain in my heart forever.) And Tommy who is resistant to contagious yawning.)” -Marita.

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!”

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.]
