Caturday Acrobatics: Upside-Down Mousie Mania!

Anyone who follows the Cute knows there are a few things I think are extra super cute: extreme close-ups, upside-down kitties and Maru. If a video fits any of those three categories... automatic Cute post!

So you'll see why I was immediately smitten with Samson the Bengal cat. He has quite a way of playing with his mousie...

Operation Save the Baby Raccoon!

This is one of the best good deeds I've seen in a long time -- and it was caught on film! The fabulous folks at Big Cat Rescue in Tampa spotted a baby raccoon up in a tree above one of the snow leopard areas.

I'd send out the rescue team just for that, but to make it even worse for the little guy, his head was stuck in a plastic peanut butter jar. Poor baby!

Operation Baby Raccoon Rescue is officially under way...

P.S. You can follow Big Cat Rescue on Twitter -- @BigCatRescue. They have the best videos of some of the most amazing animals. Enjoy!

The Cutest Soggy Kitten You Ever Did See

When you're a floofy kitty, baths happen. There's no way to avoid them, so the easiest way to get it over with is just to give in, stay still and cooperate...

And this, my friends, is the look of defeat. (Fiiiine, take the video, too, while you're at it. Why not.)

Baby Lion's Fierce Roar...

Fierce? Maybe I should go look up the definition of fierce again in the dictionary...

Just like everyone else in this world, a baby lion has to learn to crawl before he can walk. Or, in this 3-month-old lion's case, he needs to learn to mew before he can roar. RAWWWWRRRR, little buddy! :)

And then, one day when he gets big and strong, he'll sound like this:

Now that's fierce!

Pimp update: He's definitely feeling a little better, but under the bed is home base right now. I want him to feel better so he'll come out and hang like he normally does!

He is not a good boy about taking his medicine, but so far I've managed to be able to get more of it in the cat than on the carpet or myself, so that's good. ;) And I think his tongue isn't hurting him as much because he is eating -- not a ton, but enough. Good boy, Pimp.

Two Cats Tuesday: We're Friends with OPRAH!

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today we have some excitement and some news.

Excitement first:
Oprah is our new best friend! We received a package from The Oprah Store -- they sent Pimp and Moo each a fabulous polo with a fancy "O" embroidered on the collar. We're pretty sure Oprah packed the package herself. (We can think that, right?)

OMC! Look! Oprah sent us a package!

We didn't even know The Oprah Store had pet stuff (but I guess that makes sense since she loves animals)! That's a travel bowl in there with the two shirts.

Moo, being the diva that he is, wanted to model one of their new polos for you, of course. He loves to wear clothes for some reason. He wore his for over two hours and didn't even care! Pimp was excused from this fashion show -- you'll read why in the News at the end.

Green is Moo's color. He loves to wear bright colors that contrast his cow spots!

Check out that fancy O on his collar... and how Moo shows it off! He knows it's good.

You can also flip your Oprah polo's collar up, like all the cool cats do. Moo is a cool cat.

It is very important to play with toys that match your outfit, like any cat with good fashion sense. We're sure Daisy matches her toys to her clothes.

There's more cute pet stuff at http://oprahstore.oprah.com and the nice people over there were kind enough to give us a coupon code that gives Cute readers FREE SHIPPING with no minimum purchase! Just use the code CutieFur365 when you check out.

Now, on to the news:
Pimp has been a little under the weather the past few days. I've been keeping an eye on him and he hasn't been eating as much or going to the potty as much as normal, so last night I took him to the vet. (Or, to be more clear, I was so worried that I sped the whole way there -- he's my baby!)

Shhh... Pimp has to rest up and feel better soon!

Turns out he has two ulcers on his tongue, probably from a mild upper respiratory infection and a little bladder infection, too. Poor baby! His tongue has been hurting him. :( I feel so bad.

A couple shots and bag of medicine to take home later, and I think he's feeling a little better already. He devoured a can of food when we got home, which was AWESOME. Yay, Pimp!

He just needs to rest up and take his medicine like a good boy, and he'll be all better soon. He had me scared for a minute there... it's never good when one of your babies is sick!

UPDATE: Pimp is all better! This is an old post.

Sleepy, Stretchy, Nose-Spotty Kitteh

When I first started watching this video, I didn't even notice the small kitty because he's so camouflaged with his mommy! But then when the little guy started stretching... there he was!

I guess those cute nose smudges run in the family!
