Playing Footsie with the Kitty

Happy New Year, Cuteheads! What do you say we start this year off right... with an adorable kitten! (Wait, don't we start every day like that? Hehe.)

We have a little bit of a kitty feet addiction around here, so we totally understand wanting to play footsie with a kitten -- especially if the kitten reacts as cutely as this!

Kevin Goes Crazy in the Snow!

Sure, there's been a ton of snow around in the past week, but there's no use in getting cranky and complaining about it, right? Instead, do what Kevin the Yorkie did...

He put on his little red sweater and had the best time going for a little romp in the park! He looks like a little bunny hopping around like that, doesn't he?

And he seems to have a little static snow cling on his furs... Fun!

BONUS CUTE: Pimp in his sweater!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, CUTEHEADS! Be safe, have fun and let's make 2011 even cuter!

The Top 10 Cutes of 2010!

Can you believe 2010 is almost over? We can't either! And we also can't think of a better way celebrate this great year than highlighting the Top 10 Cute posts of 2010!

There's been a whole lot of cuteness in the past year (363 of them so far, to be exact!), so I couldn't wait to find out which ones you all liked and shared the most. Some of the winners might surprise you -- Can you believe the surprised kitten didn't make the list?! -- but I love each one of them!

#10: Kitty Cats Playing Patty Cake
Well, this one's no shocker. What might be shocking is that it's not higher on the list! We'll chalk it up to it being a fairly new video, and a pretty recent post!

Unfortunately, the video owner disabled embedding since we put it up, but you can view it here. Good thing is, someone came up with a translated version...

#9: Best Adoption Video Ever! (Must Watch!)
The Nevada Humane Society made a video like the "Wedding Dance" video to celebrate the adoption of a very lucky doggie named Cooper -- and it was brilliant! Getting adopted is just as big a day as getting married. I still get teary-eyed watching this one!

#8: Two Cats Tuesday: The Sweetest Faces You Ever Did See
This was a very special edition of Two Cats Tuesday where we featured Lenox and Diamond - two special cats looking for a forever home. Lenox is blind and Diamond has one good eye, and is Lenox's seeing-eye cat. They are STILL looking for a home if anyone has room in their heart... Please, please spread the word. Read their whole story and info here.

Beautiful Lenox!

Dashing Diamond!

#7: The Most Beautiful Thing You'll Read Today
This is a beautiful poem I got about rescuing animals and why we do it. Anyone who's ever rescued an animal (or is an animal-lover, really) will be truly touched by it.

I am an Animal Rescuer.
I will never bring about world peace.
I'm not a brain surgeon and I'll never transplant an organ to save a life....
I don't have the ear of a powerful politician or world power.
I can't end world hunger.
I'm not a celebrity, and God knows I'm not glamorous!
I'm not looked up to by millions around the world. Very few people even recognize my name.
I'll never win the Nobel prize.
I'll never save the rain forest or end global warming.
There are a lot of things that I'll never do or become.
But today I placed a cat! Read the rest...

#6: Rally the Troops: Little Meow Needs a Home!
Speaking of rescuing animals... of course Little Meow made the Top 10 list! What a success story my sweet former-parking-lot-kitty is. You all know and love her, and now she has a happy loving home because of it!

Little Meow, from parking lot prowler to princess! Read the post that helped her get a home.

#5: YouTube Animals Sing "Deck the Halls"
This one sure made it to the top of the list quick, didn't it?! We just posted it a little over a week ago!

#4: Two Cats Tuesday: Pimp and Moo Want to Help!
You know Pimp and Moo had to show up on this list somewhere... and what better way than in this post where we we teamed up with Iams Home for the Holidays to help donate food to animals in shelters!

With your help, we raised 21,200 bowls of food! Yay!

#3: Kitten Hiding in a Pile of Kittens
The title alone is enough to make this Cute a huge success. I could watch this video over and over again...

#2: Black Cats Are the New Black
YES! I'm so happy this post made the list -- and so high up, too! I have such a sweet spot for black kitties and hope this post helped more people see how beautiful and special they are. (By the way, Knight, the gorgeous man-cat in this post, is still looking for a home!)

Am I your Knight in shining fur?

Black cats are all the rage, and if you don't have one, you better go out and grab one quick before they run out. Act fast! All the cool people have them... Man, I wish this were true. Black cats are beautiful, amazing, gorgeous creatures. Read the rest...

#1: Maru's Fresh Step Commercial
Surprise, surprise... Look who's the cutest Cute of 2010. None other than the king of YouTube, the baffoon of boxes, the crazy cat we've all come to love -- Maru! And in his TV debut no less!

You know what I love about this Top 10 list? Sure, there's lots of cuteness here... but look at all the AMAZING things we've been able to do through Your Daily Cute! We find cats homes, we feed shelter animals, we raise awareness about less-adoptable pets...

I have never been prouder of my little blog than I am now. I didn't fudge this list. These are truly the things that interested all of you most. You know what? WE are amazing. All of us.

We hope you enjoyed all these Cutes and we look forward to even more cuteness next year!

*The top 10 Cutes were decided by which posts got the most views during the year.

Cat Puts on Bunny Hat

I have seen cats in hats before, but cats who actually put the hat on themselves?! That's a whole other level of cute.

Cuteheads, we have reached that level with this cat putting on a bunny hat! Unbelievable? Maybe. But still, really really cute.

So what's the secret? Well, from reading the comments on the video, it seems like this was actually played in reverse. The cat started with the bunny hat on... and took it off. What a spoiler! I don't care, I still love the video and the idea to do it. Cute approved!

Thanks to Cute's friend Jennifer for sharing this on our Facebook page!

Two Cats Tuesday: Moo's Madness and Pimp's Mexican Buddy

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today we really don't have much to share, so we're just going to have a random day.

First, Moo is learning to read. He is a very smart kitty. Except that he thinks that you can read through os-moo-sis (by sitting on the book and it just going through your furs to your brain somehow).

I am going to read this book so Mom doesn't have to.

For our next random, Pimp wants you to meet one of his oldest and best buddies -- the Taco Bell dog. When he was just a little kitten, he stole it from one of my roommates (more than 10 years ago!) and was immediately one of his favorite toys. He would do the bunny kicks and it would say, "Your quiero Taco Bell" over and over and over and over and over again...

He is still one of my best friends and I like to snuggle with him. And, for the record, he still talks, but I don't kick him as much.

For our last random today, I want to show you how silly Moo is. A couple days ago, Daisy the Curly Cat blogged about how her brother Harley brings toys upstairs every night. Well, Moo does the same thing -- but he brings them to my pajama pants.

I'm not a slob, but I do tend to leave my lounge pants on the floor. (Like you never leave clothes on the floor!) Anyway, every single night, Moo brings my pajama pants a present or two, and when I wake up there is always a special gift waiting for me on them.

His favorite thing in the world to deliver is his stuffed alligator. His second favorite offering is any of his wand toys. A couple nights ago, he was a very busy kitty... and brought me all of this!

How lucky am I? Look at all these presents Moo brought me!

It's pretty cold out there everywhere in the U.S... We hope all our friends and their furry babies are staying warm! We're all cuddled up over here, for sure.

P.S. Are you our friend on Facebook, too? Come on by and "Like" the Cute! http://facebook.com/yourdailycute

Escalators Can Be Confusing!

In order to walk, you have to put one foot in front of the other, right? And you have to walk in order to get anywhere, right? Right...

So what about escalators? You're moving, so you still use your feet, right? Man, those can sure be confusing for a doggie!

BONUS CUTE: Speaking of feet...

Just a Little Sunday Snuggle

After all the festivities during the past couple days, it's probably a good idea to just take a little time to wind down and snuggle up for a nice, relaxing nap with someone you love... like these two love-bug kitties.

I'll think I'll be doing just that with Pimp and Moo add day today, actually. Any excuse to cuddle with my boys... I'll take it.
