The only thing better than ONE kitteh, is….another kitteh. Remember: Rule Of Cuteness #07: A thing, accompanied by a smaller version of that thing, is always cute.
“Hi Cute Overload friends! I found this website that has pictures of mommy cats and their mini-me kittens! Just thought I’d share it with you :).” -Annamarie R.
[*Note: You will recall that yesterday we presented a candidate for inclusion in the Rules Of Cuteness. Per C.O. bylaws or…..something, we hereby post the following Semi-Legal Announcement. The Rules are now updated to reflect this. Thank-you. -Ed.]
[Update, 11:42am PT: make sure your voice is heard- every vote counts! Looks like we may have a new RULE. The voting is. not. even. close. -Ed.]
“My name is Matt S. You may remember me from my Caption Contest victory last Shark Week. But I digress: there is serious business at hand. It’s my opinion that a Universal Truth of Cuteness has been overlooked: Legs like little sticks are cute. See these two examples and try to disagree! There are currently 99 Rules of Cuteness, but a stick ain’t one. Let’s make it 100.”
What do you think? Should this be a new Rule? It wouldn’t be #100, due to the mysterious gap between Rules 50-95. (Something to do with…the Bermuda Triangle or Area 51.)
Take the Poll—this is YOUR call, People. We’ll discuss the results tomorrow.
“We had a birthday party over the weekend at Wildwood Farm Sanctuary for three calves rescued a year ago from the dairy/veal industry. I am sending a picture of another one of our cows who can’t stop partying. His name is Moose and wants more birthday party! I also sent a picture of our pygmy goat* Mary enjoying the sunshine we are having here in OR.” -Shelly C.
[*Note: Rule of Cuteness #45: Any animal with the word “Pygmy” in it is cute.” -Ed.]
[**Personal Note: Reading the new David Duchovny book “Holy Cow” now. Funny read. -B.]
The ears, the Side-Eye, just too much. S.T. is obviously not stuck in Boston, either. Pal, you just got yourself your own tag.
Yesterday afternoon, Poncho The Wah Wah showed off SEVEN big Rules. Miss Waffles shows off just two- but they’re biggies! Notice RULE NUMBER ONE: Putting up a paw is cute. Follow that right up with RULE NUMBER TWENTY-EIGHT: If your head looks down, but your eyes look up, it’s cute.
This Wah Wah has broken every known record for most number of Rules in one post. (Seven!!!)
“This is Poncho. He loves sleeping on his back in a sunbeam. He is a funny little puppy,” says Julie H. He’s also displaying the following Rules Of Cuteness– quite a rarity.
Rule Of Cuteness #01: Putting a paw up is cute.
Rule Of Cuteness #02: Looking helpless is cute.
Rule Of Cuteness #12: Fuzzy, floppy limbs are cute.
Rule Of Cuteness #19: Dainty paws are cute.
Rule Of Cuteness #22: Curled-up or tucked paw is cute.
Rule Of Cuteness #39: Nuzzable mini-chests are cute.
And of course–the big one:
Rule Of Cuteness #40: Sleeping in a sunbeam is cute.
Peggy turns the Big Two today, and to celebrate she’s givin’ us some MAJOR Princess Di Side-Eye! “She makes us laugh every day,” says Mary H. Can’t imagine why. :)
Ever see a photo on Cute Overload and go, “I don’t care where he/she is, I am getting in a car/on a plane to go see him/her NOW!” That’s what I just decided with Boomer. (Oh, and before I forget, nice Side-Eye up there, too.)
“I just wanted to submit Boomer, our Labradoodle Puppeh. He’s just over a year old right now.”
“We’ve been wanting to submit him ever since his brother-in-law (Nermal, the British short-hair) got featured on your website… twice!
“Hope he makes the cut!”
