Stewie vs. the Water Bowl

That water has a lot of nerve sitting there in that bowl like that! I mean, what cat wouldn't retaliate?

There it is, in the middle of the floor, just looking so, well, watery. Can you imagine?

It must be attacked! It must be shown who's the boss! And Stewie is just the cat to do just that.

Can't see the video? Watch it on YouTube here.

Cat and Dog in the Ultimate Snuggle

These two best buds couldn't possibly be any more comfortable together. I don't think I've ever seen a cat and a dog so perfectly cuddled!

And this wasn't a one-time event, either. Looking through their videos, these two have been loving each other just like this for years!

This is one snuggle session...

And this is a year later!

Baby Polar Bear is a Buckethead!

What do you get when you give a baby polar bear a regular blue bucket? A couple minutes of the cutest, most innocent, sweetest video you've ever seen!

It's a hat! It's a toy! It's a step stool! (It sure makes him topple over a lot, though, doesn't it?)

Augo the baby polar bear was born in November at the Aaborg Zoo in Denmark, which makes him about four months old.

BONUS CUTE: A set of cute baby polar bear pictures!

Thanks to Cute's Facebook friend, Lauren, for sharing this cute baby polar bear video!

Two Cats Tuesday: The Many Faces of Pimp

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today is a collage of cuteness!

Yesterday I was sitting in front of Pimp with the camera in his face (like I always do), and of course it resulted in a supermodel photo shoot. That cat just does not know how to take a bad photo! Even the "bad" ones are still cute or fun. It's incredible.

And, so... since I couldn't bring myself to just pick one or two to feature, I picked them all. I'm assuming there will be no complaints?

Cat and Dolphin Play Together

Fish are not always food for kitties -- fish are friends, too!

This sweet tabby cat loves playing with his dolphin buddies. He calls them over and pets them and even gives them kisses on the nose! Have you ever seen anything more precious?

Such a sweet way to start the week. I wish this video had more info, but there isn't any about where this is (Believe me, I looked!). If you know, please share!

If the video is not working, try to see it here or here.

UPDATE! The story of the cat and the dolphin has been found! The kitty's name is Arthur and he lived in Islamorada, Florida at a marine park. He loved the dolphins! The video was originally taken in 1998, but just posted this month. You can read the whole story here.

Thanks to Cute's Facebook friend, Laura, for sharing this adorable cat playing with dolphins video!

News from the Nest: Florence and her New Baby Birdie

For those of you just joining us, Florence is a mourning dove that has built her nest on my balcony. This is the latest update about her and her new baby birdie, Uno!

The past couple days have been pretty eventful, yesterday in particular.

You see, Florence and her husband, Herman, had two little eggs in their nest.

She's been sitting on there for a while now, and just a couple days ago I noticed that there was a baby birdie in there! The eggs had hatched!

What I did not know for sure, though, was whether there were indeed two babies. I had only seen one little fuzzy head that first day peeking over the nest, but they are so small when they're just born that it's hard to see in there.

Then, a couple days ago I was able to catch them at feeding time! Great! I could get a good look. Well, I did and unfortunately, it looked like one of the babies wasn't moving. These things happen in nature, I guess, but it was still sad.

I named the healthy baby Uno.

I was worried about the other one and was planning on trying to catch her away from the nest so I could remove the poor other birdie. I thought I'd do it yesterday, but instead, when I woke up in the morning and went out to say hi to her (like I always do!), this is what I saw.

Florence was on the towels under her nest!

Oh no, I thought. A baby fell out!

As it turns out, I think she probably did this on purpose to get away from the poor other one up there. And, honestly, I think she's a smart bird! Now she has a soft towel and we don't have to worry about anyone falling out of the nest... and I get a better view of what's going on because I can see her perfectly!

Baby Uno. He's just a little fuzzball right now. About 4 days old.

So now, the problem is that she set up camp right next to the sliding glass doors... where Pimp and Moo can stalk and terrorize her from three inches away. Sigh. So I had to think of a way to make her feel safe and block her from the boys' views.

What I decided to do was to tape up sheets of paper to make a little "wall" for her instead of glass. It was the best idea! Now Pimp and Moo won't scare her and Uno and she can feel a little safer.

And to make her stay with us here even more pleasant (she has the luxury suite, you know), I put out a little dish with bird food and another deeper one with some water -- in case she wants to wash up to look pretty for Herman or just cool off. Deluxe, right?

Flo, Herman and Uno's buffet.

These are some lucky birdies and I'm such a proud grandma. I hope Uno grows up big and strong, and I'll keep you all posted.

Flo and Uno, relaxing this afternoon.

P.S. I post pretty often about Florence and the birdie family on the Cute's Facebook, so follow over there if you want more updates more often. Happy Sunday!
