The March of the Alpacas

Aren't alpacas the silliest looking animals? It's almost like they're wearing little pantaloons...

And they're even better in bunches! Watch out for this approaching alpaca gang -- looks like they mean business!

P.S. Can you believe this is the first time alpacas are on the Cute? Me either! I have to really do better here... Hehe.

Baby Bulldog Stumblin' and Bumblin'

If this baby bulldog video doesn't make you awww, then you should probably get your awwwer checked right away.

A chunky little bulldog girl is trying to get her legs to do what they're supposed to do... but walking can be a bit of a challenge when your legs are all wiggly and jiggly and full of squishy bulldog rolls.

I can't decide what I like most: her grunting (doesn't she sound like she's purring?), her little leg kicking or that ridiculously cute little stub of a tail. Enjoy! I did... twice.

Thanks to Cute's friend, Vanessa, for sharing this one!

Maru's Fresh Step Commercial!

Rumor had it that there was a Fresh Step commercial with Maru the box cat in it, but I had yet to see it... until now! I finally found it online, and am sharing it with you all in case you haven't seen it yet either.

Maru's Fresh Step commercial has a couple videos of Maru and his boxes and some other cute cat video viral favorites. How did a cat company not think of using videos like this before!? And Maru in a Fresh Step commercial about litter boxes (it's a box, right?)... purrfect!

Update 5/5/11: It looks like they had Maru's commercial video removed from YouTube. Bummer! Not to worry, though, here's the video where the clip in the commercial was taken from -- watch Maru and his big box action here!

(I'm going to leave the commercial video embedded below in case it starts working again...)

Maru the Box Cat's Smallest Challenge Yet

Maru the box cat is at it again, and this time he is working on squeezing his plump self into the teeniest, tiniest, crampiest little box yet.

This cat's a pro, though. If any cat can scrunch himself (and actually look comfortable) in a box this small, Maru can! I especially like right around 1:40 in when you see the butt view... so much, um, cat butt to cram its way in. Hehe.

Want more Maru? Get more Maru!

Dancing Otters!

I had no idea otters were so squeaky. Or so bouncy. Or so cute, really... Until I saw this dancing otters video.

This silly herd of otters at the Chester Zoo is so excited about something (I wish I knew what it was!) that they can't help but do the jumping otter dance! And, don't you think they sound like a wacky basket full of unstoppable squeaky toys?

Bonus Cute! If you haven't seen the otters holding hands video... Watch it! Super cute.

Two Cats Tuesday: Playing Footsie!

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today Pimp and Moo are playing footsie... Prepare to meet da feet!

They're not actually playing footsie with each other, but today we're all about their footsies -- which is just as cute, right?

Last night I was lying on the couch with my foot kind of just hanging over the edge. Moo (who has to be as close as possible and always touching me or on me) decided to camp out on the coffee table and still maintain contact... with my big toe.

Moo playing footsie with me!

Pimp has a favorite position to relax in... and the footsie is a very important part of it. He absolutely loves the outstretched paw. Nine out of 10 times, he's got his paw way out.

Outstretched footsie. Like so.

Then, later, as if Moo knew I was on a footsie roll, he decided to sit all politely and cutely and cross his little paws!

Have you ever seen a sweeter kitty? (Don't let his sweet face fool you!)

Hope everyone has a great day! Oh, and in case you're counting down like I am... 18 days until Moo's birthday! (He's a Halloween kitty!)

Kitten Massage Therapy

After a nice, relaxing weekend, what could be better than starting off the week with a little kitten massage? Oreo loves to give is sister, Clea, the ultimate kitten massage! (Read after the video for an update a year later!)

Well now, a year later, these two are all grown up... and still at it! (See the whole updated story at Catsparella.)

The first video up there was actually taken by their foster mommy before they had a forever home. Now they're all happy and loved, and still loving each other. Plus, it looks like Oreo's picked up a new kitten massage technique... Love it!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Cute Kitten Eating a Cucumber

Futte the kitten puts a serious effort into devouring this cucumber. He's a fierce, determined cucumber eater who is very protective of his veggie feast.

Spoiler Alert!
I think you'll probably get the drift of the cuteness by about 30 seconds in, so just in case you don't make it all the way through all 6 minutes, here's how it ends: With an adorable extreme close-up (after he eats up every last morsel of that cucumber, of course)!

P.S. Happy 10/10/10, everyone!
