Exhibit A, People!
piles of kudos to Sarah Serata 😉
Mmm, delicious recliner… This Frodo-Footed hamster, (obviously his BHF is “Baruchito”) alertly submitted by Heng Joo Seng. Heng Joo, you outdid yourself.
This rule could also be called the Japanese rule of cuteness. Japanese characters are always accompanied by a little friend that helps them along, provides humor on demand, etc. AKA the Paris Hilton rule.
Props to The Australian Embassy!
This image covers many cuteness factors; multiple animals, looking helpless (it would be fun to turn the water on) and mimicking humans. Humans love it! I mean, half of America’s Funniest Home videos is based on animals mimicking humans (the only two things better is suddenly scared people falling down or a surprise hit to the groin).

Unless of course it’s an iguana. The best example of this being the rock solid, high-cuteness factor of the Japanese calendars “The Dog” or “The Cat.”
The color coordination is irresistible, and the low-down camera angle just accentuates the fact they are not much larger than the blades of grass they sit on. *But* I give them an 8.5—no paws are up, and there is the BEF on the bunny (Beady eye factor)
Oh, AND putting your paws up. Why don’t you just shoot us?
Thank you, Victoria S.

they are also abiding by rule #5, which is that cuteness in numbers can jack up your rating significantly.
