Fat Cat Day: Goodnight Streeeeeetch

More "Fat Cat Day" cuteness!

Butterscotch here has had a long day. Clearly. And now it's time to sit on his easy chair and relax, so find a good spot, get comfortable, relaxed and streeeetch...

Fat Cat Day: Fat Cat Exercises

More for "Fat Cat Day" on the Cute!

You have to at least give this big guy a little credit... at least he's trying to exercise. Granted, he won't give up his whole lying down thing, but at least he's got these little stretches going on...

Fat Cat Day: Fat Cat Climbing a Ladder

Today is "Fat Cat Day" on Your Daily Cute. Why, you ask? Why not!

The first fat cat of the day is an adventurous chunker -- he climbs ladders... but then what? What to do when you get to the top? Oh wait, wait, what's moving?!? Gotta get it!

Looks kinda dangerous to me (dangerously cute!). And don't forget to check back later for more cute, fat cats!

These Cats Have Rhythm!

These kitties are head-bobbing to the music, and they're so good at it and synchronized, it's like they have a choreographed little routine!

I love the head dip. You'll see...

Where Swine Flu Came From...

Awww... this makes swine flu look cute! Got this in an email this morning and had to share!

*Thanks to Al for passing on the piggy!

Everybody clear the dance floor -- it's potty time!

More sleepy dancing, please.

Thoughts on Cat Baths...

This was a really cute email I got the other day. Cat baths... we all know how those go!

Thoughts from The Cat:

But you said you loved me!

You will pay, as God is my witness, you will pay.

You call this water warm???

I don't think I like you anymore.

You Lied!!!

E.T. Phone home... quick!

No, I'm not your Good Little Kitty anymore.

Traction....I'm losing traction!

I want my Mommmmmmyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

No, no, no, no... NOOOO!!!

*Special thanks to Kathy for forwarding this email on!

I Think He's Got Something Up His Sleeve...'s a cat!

Reasons I love this video:

1. The extreme close-up (if you follow Cute, you know I'm a sucker for the extreme close-up!).

2. The creaking floorboards are pretty funny, because before you realize it's the floor, you just assume it's the noise the cat is making and he's squeeeeeeezing his way through the sleeve hole.

3. One of my favorite Twitter pals, @Monkey_Cat, recommended it. :) Enjoy!

Hamster Stuffing Animal Crackers in His Face

Spoiler Alert: He stuffs them ALL in his chubby little hamster cheeks. Nom, nom, nom...

How? I have no idea. It's a special talent hamsters have, I guess. But this little guy can seriously put away some animal crackers!

More cute hamsters, please.

Pimp & Moo Get Plague Ratsies!

Officially the best cat toy ever -- plague rats.

If you have cats and haven't heard of plague rats, I'm glad you're here. This is a "need to know" topic. Plague rats are handmade cat toys (made by a woman in the UK) that are loading with special cat-crazy filling, a mixture of catnip and Valerian root.

I just ordered my two cats, Pimp and Moo, a couple and here's how it went down:

Ooh! What is it, mom? Gimme gimme gimme!

Pimp likes to rub his ratsie. Moo is vicious bunny-kicker... fwap-fwap-fwap, rat.

Even the packaging and the plastic bag they came in are fun... (Moo's not in it, he's under it.)

Pimp and Moo, high on plague rats.

If you'd like to order some plague ratsies (highly recommend!) for you cats, you can get them at They're not recommended for young kittens, however, so let's make sure our cats are of legal age before buying them drugs... :)

If you've been lucky enough to get some plague rats, let us know how it went by leaving a comment!

"Stray Cat" -- Beautiful Poem!

What a beautiful poem to start the week...

by Francis Witham

Oh, what unhappy twist of fate
Has brought you homeless to my gate?
The gate where once another stood
To beg for shelter, warmth, and food
For from that day I ceased to be
The master of my destiny.

While he, with purr and velvet paw
Became within my house the law.
He scratched the furniture and shed
And claimed the middle of my bed.

He ruled in arrogance and pride
And broke my heart the day he died.
So if you really think, oh Cat,
I'd willingly relive all that
Because you come forlorn and thin
Well...don't just stand there...Come on in!

I found this poem on the National Cat Rescue site and instantly fell in love with it. I hope you enjoy it, too! Please pass it on to anyone else who has ever brought in a stray cat or adopted a rescue or shelter kitty.

The newest member of my family, Moo (that's him over there!), adopted me by setting up camp on my back porch for three weeks until I finally loved him so much that I had no choice to bring him in. And now I can't imagine life without him...

Cute Sleepy Bear Cub

Oh, how little! He must be such a young little cub because he's more of a baby than any other bear cub I've ever seen!

Why does he have to sleep on his baby bear nose like that? It's too cute.

It's Raining Cats!

Well, raining on cats maybe? Either way, how cute is this picture?!

Poor babies... but they are so smart to be sitting under the umbrella! And they're human was so nice to set them up with one!

I love it.
Got this image in an email, so I'm not exactly sure where it's from. If you know, let me know!

Cat at Work

This cat is furiously typing away -- I estimate at about 65 meows a minute.

She's probably emailing Your Daily Cute...
