Rule of Cuteness #8: You’re cute if your furniture doubles as a meal

Mmm, delicious recliner… This Frodo-Footed hamster, (obviously his BHF is “Baruchito”) alertly submitted by Heng Joo Seng. Heng Joo, you outdid yourself.

Rule of Cuteness #7: A thing, accompanied by a smaller version of that thing, is always cute

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.

Rule of Cuteness #6: Mimic Humans

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).

Rule of Cuteness #5: Fisheye lens + baby animal is always cute

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.”

Rule of Cuteness #4: more than one species of baby flopping around is cute

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)
