THIS Has GOT To Be A Rule!

IoLDabN(Let’s see..punches up the RULES page…hmmm, AHA! Number 50: If your paws fold over one another, that’s cute.

Preach it, brothers and sisters.

Caturday Morning RULE Alert!

(And let’s note that sideways heart on her back/side, too!)

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.”

Yo! Rocky! Rocko!

(Plus: Rule Of Cuteness #97: “If your head is exponentially larger than the rest of your entire body, that’s cute.”)

Rule Of Cuteness #96 (Continued)

As readers of These Pages know, we introduced a new Rule on Thursday. This prompted an email from Julia and John M. who write, “Our cat Marmalade loved to sleep upside down with his paws over his eyes. Sadly, he crossed the Rainbow Bridge in April. I know he would be thrilled to be on your site. Thanks for keeping The QTE™ coming and for bringing a smile to our faces every day.”

OK, THAT’S A New Rule (Updated!)

Earlier today, we mentioned that maybe there should be a new Rule: “If you cover up your eyes with your tail while you’re sleeping, that’s cute.”

Let’s expand that a bit. Hear Ye, Hear Ye. All Rise. This Rule is now ADOPTED as of this date, 07/24/14 at 12:29pm PT: Rule of Cuteness 96: “If your (or someone else’s) ears or tail cover your face for the purposes of sleeping, that’s cute.”

RULES 1

UPDATE! From Ginette C.: “This is my 6 year old little girl Mia relaxing on my bed, demonstrating new Rule #96.” (Now, strictly speaking- that’s a paw. But we can be flexible.)

Both shots c/o The Furrtographer, who told us both these critters are at SF ACC this very moment. (You might not be in SF, but you know someone who is- let ‘em know!)
