Ducky Diving Contest

Swan dives were so last week... now we have duck dives!


See another cute ducky following his doggie friend...

Oh Rats... Rat Loves Cat!

We all learned from watching Tom and Jerry that cats generally want to tear meeces to pieces, right? Wrong...

Meet Peanut the rat and Ranj the cat -- best buds (well, it looks like the cat tolerates the rat anyway). Peanut gives kisses and hugs and lots of love... He's really the cutest thing!

After you see how this rat loves cats, here's a couple other cute, odd matchups: dog and the elephant (must watch!), real-life Bambi and Thumper and Sylvester and Tweety.

Feel the love...

*Thanks to both Lenisse and our Twitter bud BongoKitty for sharing this! (Follow us on Twitter, too!)

Best Cute Cat Compilation Video Ever

Seriously. And it's not easy to earn that award from me, as I consider myself quite the "what's cute" connoisseur.

This cute cat music video though is so perfectly set to Bjork's "It's Oh So Quiet" (make sure you have the sound up!). From sleepy kitty clips to dramatic cats and fraidy furballs, this has all the classics, plus some you've never seen before.

I love it! Enjoy...

Puppedential Debate: Which Dog Will Obama Choose?

In a segment he called "Road to the Doghouse," Jon Stewart reports on the Puppedential Debate CNN had. Anderson Cooper moderates fabulously, asking all the crucial questions (Who's a good doggie?).

It's ridiculous and awesome. Who knew CNN could be so silly? ...And Jon Stewart, of course, makes it even funnier.

*Thanks to Vanessa for passing the Obama Dog Puppedential Debate! So cute!

Mirror, Mirror Kitty

Why buy toys for your kitten when you can just plop him in front of a mirror with a pair of your shoes? Hours of entertainment!

He's got a friend in the mirror (who he's slightly scared of) and a place to hide in the shoes. What more could a kitty ask for?

Plus, it's always fun watching cats find themselves in mirrors...

Siren Dog - Sound the Alarm!

If you let Oscar the boxer hang his head out the window of you car and let him siren-ate (Is that a word? Sure.) like this, I'm pretty sure people would slow and move to the right to get out of your way.

If I'm late for work, I want him in my car. If I (ever) go into labor and have to rush to the hospital, I want him in my car. If I'm just really hungry and can't get to McDonald's fast enough, I want him in my car.

Plus, he makes the cutest faces doing it...

Sad News... the White House Cat Died

OK, so it's not technically a "cute" thing, but we did just want to pass along that the Bush's pet cat, India, died today.

India was 18 years old, and according to her bio, she loved to stay and inside and visit the White House Library. Her favorite book was If You Take a Mouse to the Movies by Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond.

R.I.P. cute kitty!

Kitty Cat Sneak Attack

It is very important to be quiet and act sneaky so the humans don't notice... First, a couple little test shots. Will it work? Yes, yes, I think it will.

Then, when no one's looking and the dog is least suspecting...

Best Friends: A Dog and an Elephant

When retired elephants end up in this sanctuary in Tennessee, they always end up picking out a special friend to hang out with. Most pick another elephant, but not Tarra... Tarra's best friend is Bella, a dog.

The two have stuck together for years now, the sanctuary founder says. They play together, eat together, drink together -- Bella the dog even lets Tarra pet her tummy... with her giant elephant foot!

Through good and tough times, these two stick by each other's side. You'll love the story!

*Thanks to Holly for passing on the cute story!

Catching up with Michael Vick's Dogs...

Sports Illustrated did a little catching up with some of Michael Vick's pitbulls -- and I'm so happy for them! The story was awful; the man is even more awful... but it looks like a happy ending for some of the poor doggies!

Check out Michael Vick's dogs slideshow here!

(That image over there is just one of cute pics from it on sportsillustrated.com!)
