Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is April 30, which can only mean on thing: It's the Queen of Cute's birthday!

Yup, that's right. Today I'm one year older, but we're not counting anymore. The only thing that counts is that there will be CAKE... right?

Happy birthday to the best mom ever, Pimp says!

(I dressed him up like that one year for his birthday, and it's officially my favorite birthday picture ever. I use it for everything. One day, I'll sell it to Hallmark. Maybe.)

Hope everyone has a great day! I'll be lounging and relaxing with my friends and my kitties. :)

Everyone, Meet Ted! - Hairball Awareness Day

Who is Ted, you all are wondering? Well, Ted is Moo's new friend. I guess you could say he's maybe kind of his brother. Well, he is made out of Moo anyway...

You see, today is National Hairball Awareness Day (Don't worry, Ted is NOT a hairball!) and the Cute is celebrating!

First, we used our FURminator to collect some furs.

Can you tell who's furs these are? Kind of cow-spotted, even in the bag, huh?

Then, we put the furs to fun use and made a Hairball Creature! Lots of other blogs are doing this today, so we hope ours isn't too boring...

I asked Moo what he wanted, and he said TUNA, so we made a tuna.

We know tunas don't have fur, sillies, but that's what Moo wanted at the time. You try and argue with Moo... It doesn't work.

And tada! Heeeere's Ted!

Moo thought maybe he'd try and nom on a piece of Ted, but I told him that was silly and put Ted's fur back together.

Ted needed an eyeball, don't you think. Now he's perfect!

Pimp thinks we're silly, but me and Moo had fun with Ted!

Thanks to FURminator for having this fun idea to celebrate National Hairball Awareness Day and asking us to participate. There are lots more hairball creature pictures on PeoplePets.com, so go check them out, too!

Doggie Barks Quieter

Sure, some doggies bark on command... but do you know any doggies that can adjust the volume of their woofs on when they're told? This pup can!

You tell him to bark, and he does. You tell him to bark quieter, and he does. You tell him to just whisper his little woof in an "inside voice," and he does that, too!

BONUS CUTE: This doggie doesn't talk, but she's the BEST listener!

Cat vs. Balloon

Nashville the cat has a new bright yellow toy! It's a balloon, and it's so much fun! He can kick it and bite it and play with it... Until the inevitable happens.

Oopsies! What happened to his toy? All of the sudden it's not so round and fun anymore and he just can't figure out why.

He's not scared, just more kind of bummed. I sure hope his daddy gave him a new one right away! I would have, for sure.

BONUS CUTE: See Simon the dog unleash a fury on a pile of balloons!

Two Cats Tuesday: Prepare to Meet Da Feet!

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today it's Pimp's turn to have a post and he wanted to play footsie with you.

Um, I mean, he wanted to show you his feet!

These are my feet. They are huge, Mom says.

They are! Even when Pimp was a teeny, tiny kitten, his paws and his ears were extra HUGE! That's how we knew he was going to be a big boy. It took him a while, but he eventually grew into all of them.

You all don't think my feet are too big, do you? DO YOU?!

Hmph! Fine. Side with HER if you want.

Cat Loves Touching Stuff

Sometimes you just have to touch something to make sure it's real. Maybe that's what this kitty is up to? He has to give everything a few taps just to claim it as his?

Or maybe, he's a lot like me -- I kind of like to touch everything. When I'm shopping for clothes, the first thing I do is feel the fabric. When I shop for furniture, same thing; I have to touch everything.

Or maybe he just like to make a lot of noise? ;)

Cats Can't Figure Out the Treadmill

Snowball and Pepper are like two scientists trying to figure out this confounded treadmill. The thing makes no sense!

First, Pepper tries the "Thwap Test" on it. Then, Snowball tests the treadmill for "Paw Drag." It's all very exact and carefully tested, but I'm not sure if they ever got an answer.
