Baby Kitten Drinks Milk and Mews

Thanks to this cute kitten video, your Saturday just got a whole lot sweeter! This tiny little baby is just barely able to stand on his own, but he's loving his little dish of milk.

He also has a lot to say about how delicious it is. Just mew mew mew and more mew. Such a precious little thing!

(P.S. The video says the cute kitten is drinking goat's milk, which is much lower in lactose that cow's milk, and easy and OK on cats' stomachs. Also, his mommy is right next to the table, so he's safe and not scared. They are very good with their kitties. Enjoy!)

Heidi the Cross-Eyed Opossum

There are two types of people in this world: Those who think opossums are cute and those that think they're icky and mean.

Well, Heidi the cross-eyed opossum is so darn cute that I'm pretty sure she'll spur a whole bunch of converts from Team Icky to Team Cute! That's her Facebook profile picture over there on the right. (You should already know which team I'm on.)

She is a new part of the family at the Leipzig Zoo in Germany and doctors say Heidi's eyes are probably crossed because of genetics (her sister, Naira, is a little squinty, too!), but her vision impairment shouldn't bother her much. Opossums are nocturnal, so they "see" with their other senses!

Cats Don't Care About Clementines

These three kitties couldn't possibly care less about these clementines. Which makes sense, really. I mean, they're cats.

Maybe if someone was stacking tunas in front of their faces we'd have a little more excited reaction...

Your Cat Wants You to Read This.

Good, you're here. That means you listen to your cat. Your cat wanted you to read this because they want to be a star in a national TV commercial. (And Cute is telling you how!)

We got wind that Fresh Step Cat Litter is doing a cute cat video contest, and the winning cats are going to be in commercials! You remember Maru's Fresh Step commercial? That could be YOUR KITTY on there next! (Ahem, if your cat does win, don't forget the little people and Cuteheads that knew you before he was famous... Just sayin'.)

All you have to do to enter your cat in the TV commercial contest is take a cute cat video and upload it to the Fresh Step YouTube page. Here are their tiny rules:

-Video size must be under 2GB
-Keep the focus on cats, not humans
-Try to keep it under 2 minutes
-We like cats being cats, not staged
-Try to shoot in good light
-Avoid package labels
-Please no music due to licensing rules
-Title your video and write a small description

That's it! Oh, and be sure to tell Cute if you send a video in so we can watch it and spread the word and cheer your kitty on! I'm going to enter one of Pimp and Moo, of course... ;)

Good luck to all the cute kitties out there! I just know one of you out there in Cuteheadland will be a winner!

Here's a totally-unrelated inspiration:

Check out all the entries so far (there are some cute ones!) here: http://www.youtube.com/freshstep.

Outta the Way!

I'm not saying you HAVE to move out of the way, but if you don't, you might get run over by this silly stampede...

You've been warned.

Also, I dare you not to giggle.

Two Cats Tuesday: Do Cats Get Split Ends?

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today we have a question for you. I know the answer, but I just found out a couple days ago: Do cats get split ends?

Up until this week, I'd have said no. But Moo, in his usual goofball fashion, has proven me wrong. That boy just doesn't do anything the normal way, I tell you!

I have no idea what it is, but lately his eyelash whiskers have been an absolute mess. A mess! Just look.

What? Just because half of my eyelash whiskers are completely broken off and the other half are dangling all over and split... That doesn't mean I'm messy!

Seriously, though. Look at that top one on the left there. It's totally split! They've been breaking off a lot in the past couple days and I can't figure out why.

He does love to headbutt me. When I pick him up, the first thing he does is dive head-first into my neck or cheek and just jam his forehead there repeatedly. Maybe that's it? But that's nothing new...

Or maybe he and Pimp have been playing a little too rough lately? Who knows? But what I do know is that Moo used to have the most luxurious lashes, and now look at him!

I'll show you seriously... Seriously CUTE!

Yes, we'll give him that one. I posted that picture on Cute's Facebook page about a week ago and it was just too cute to not share here, too. I think it's one of my favorite pictures of Moo!

Speaking of cute, look at my nose! Have you ever seen a cuter thing?

Hope you all have a great day! It's 1-11-11, so that must mean it's going to be an extra cute day!

Kitten Loves to Play Fetch

If you ask me, I think this kitten fetches better than any dog I've ever seen! Which is cute, yes, but the cutest part? Listen to how happy he is while he does it!

He meows for the ball the be thrown, mews all the way to go get and and then purrreows when he brings it back. The fetching is cute, but the noises might be even cuter.

BONUS CUTE: Did you see the little kitten fetches big towel?

Grooving Disco Owl

William Henry the barn owl gets funky and grooves to the music in his little barn owl bed!

I love how his little head moves... It's like he's saying, "Oh no you didn't just say I can't dance. I'll show you how owls roll!"
