The Great Escape Starring Pumpkin and Squash

Pumpkin and Squash are two mischievous little kittens on a mission to escape the baby gate!

The daredevil duo first tries to team up against the gate and swing on it to bring it down, and when that doesn't work, they go for the climbing method. Pumpkin is clearly a natural, but Squash isn't so sure.

And then I think he has second thoughts once he makes it over. Silly rascals!

BONUS CUTE: More kittens versus a baby gate!

P.S. Happy early New Year to all of you! Let's make 2013 the cutest year yet!

Thanks to Cute's fabulous friend, Marcos, for sharing Pumpkin and Squash's great escape video with us!

Baby Turtles Gang Up on Cat

Three baby box turtles line up and march bravely at a cat. They're so tiny, but they know there's power in numbers (and they have shells!).

So they march on... and guess who gives in and gets up?

Henri the Cat Had a Miserable Holiday (Surprise, Surprise)

Henri the existential cat lives such a hard life. He is surrounded by other cats (who are all idiots, according to him) and people who just don't appreciate his importance or greatness... or whatever it is he feels unappreciated about.

All everyone does is interrupt his quiet, privileged life. And the holidays were apparently even worse. Poor Henri...

Kitten Drags Her Toy Into Her Secret Hiding Place

Tifa has a teddy bear that is just as big as she is, and she has to keep it hidden away and safe from everyone else!

It's very urgent, so she must work quickly. You'll see. Once she secures the teddy, she's off in a flash and she and her teddy are in their hiding space in a matter of seconds!

BONUS CUTE: Here's a kitten cuddling a teddy bear.

Sweet Old Dog and Little Boy are Best Friends

Watson and his best friend are taking a stroll down a dirt path, when they come across a puddle. A puddle! This must be further inspected.

So the boy gently puts Watson's leash down and Watson stands by like a good doggie as the boy takes a closer look and a second splash through. And a third. And a fourth. And possibly a couple more, until he's satisfied.

And then they carry on about their walk.

NOTE FROM CUTE: Two more kitties are getting out of animal control today thanks to Cutehead Jenny S. and her rescue, Orphan Animal Rescue and Sanctuary in Wisconsin! Cody and Bingley just finished getting neutered and vetted and will go hang out with a foster mom until we figure out their transport (with the other gray kittens I told you about the other day!).

That's six kittens saved in the past week. Wheeee!

Cody is SAFE! (And he needs a ride to Wisconsin.)
Bingley is SAFE, too! (You all know how much I love black kitties!)

Meet Cosgrove, a Kitten Born Without Eyes

Cosgrove is an adorable little kitten who plays and eats and jumps and loves just like any other baby... Except that he was born without any eyes.

Animals are amazing, and they don't let these little things bother them. Cosgrove is just cute as any kitten can be! (Your heart will melt when you see him strut with his head all up around at about 1:30 in the video.)

This pretty boy was dumped as a stray at a shelter, and they pitched in to get him the surgery he needed to close up his eyes so he stays healthy. Now he's on the mend, and no doubt off to a wonderful and fabulous life!

P.S. Cosgrove reminds me a lot of Oskar the blind kitten. What do you all think?

P.P.S. Speaking of cats who need homes, senior sisters Sera and Chloe still need a home! They can go separate if that works out better. They lived together before being surrendered at the shelter by me, but are not cuddle buddies. Please visit the post I wrote about them and spread the word!

To enter to win, simply fill out this form below. I need your address so we can ship it to you if you win, but I promise that's all it's for. We just need to know quickly and figured it would be easier to collect that with entries than asking for them later during all the holiday hustle-and-bustle.

There are 20 of these we will give away. All entries must be received by Wednesday, December 26. Winners will be chosen on Thursday, December 27 and notified by email.

Good luck, Cuteheads!

Brave Tiny Kitten vs Big Cat

If you ask me, this kitten isn't really "brave"... He just has no manners!

He is not sure if what to make of his big brother, and his big brother is extra not sure what to make of this little cow-spotted furball that keep trying to approach him.

A lot of nerve that tiny thing has!

P.S. We're going to have a great giveaway tomorrow that I think a lot of you will like! So be sure to come by. It's only for one day!

P.P.S. Guess what I did yesterday? I busted four kittens out of animal control! One is going to Cutehead Roberta S. in Georgia and the others are going to a rescue in Wisconsin... with a few others kittens also! We'll be working on transport soon... So keep an eye out!

These babies are SAFE!

Ginger Cat Pushes His Human Baby Brother's Swing

Tiger is a good boy. He knows that a big brother's job is very important.

He has to look after his new little brother and make sure he's safe -- and push his swing when he needs to be rocked to sleep. What a wonderfully sweet kitty!

Confessions of Tard the Grumpy Cat

Tardar Sauce, or as most of you know this famous kitty, Grumpy Cat, has a few confessions to make.

Namely about being scared of heights, a love of tuna, looking out windows, and the fact that she is not really grumpy... That's just how her face is shaped.

STORYBOARD: Tard the Grumpy Cat from Tumblr on Vimeo.

Cat Attacks Christmas Tree Again and Again

When you think about it, it's not really this cat's fault. That shiny, hanging, tempting ornament was just dangling there, begging to be batted.

And then when the darn thing wouldn't go down, repeat (and repeat and repeat!) attempts were needed. The ornament was just asking for it.

NOTE FROM CUTE: Today is the last day to donate to Santa Paws Drive!

And, in case you missed it on our Facebook yesterday, Science Diet donated $2,000! Wow! Huge, tremendous, words-are-not-enough thank you to them for doing this! It will make a big difference in our drive and for our shelters!

And we have big news coming today, too. Stay tuned!

Silly Boston Terrier Back-Flips Into His Food Bowl

I have been so happy about food before that I've jumped up and down, but I can't recall ever levitating and flipping right over into my plate like this cute little Boston!

His little legs get so happy and straight and he just dives in head first... and ends up practically doing a handstand in his bowl!

BONUS CUTE: Here is a Boston Terrier laying in a pile of treats.


Tomorrow is the LAST DAY TO DONATE 

Raffle tickets can still be purchased (for $1,775 of awesome, amazing products) and cash donations can still be made! Every penny goes to our shelters. Let's make this holiday the happiest one ever for all the deserving doggies and kitties there! Please donate if you can!

Two Cats Tuesday: Pimp Has a Drinking Problem and Moo Helps Me Clean

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Pimp and Moo are just going about their regular business today, and they wanted to share it with you.

First, let's discuss Pimp's drinking problem. He truly has one. You see, he does not drink out of bowls like regular cats. He drinks out of the bathroom sink... and my water glass.

Who wants to cheers?
He's so proper, isn't he? Unlike his brother, Moo, who does not know how to act. I was cleaning (for hours!) this past weekend, and Moo wanted to help.

We all know how "helpful" cats are.

I am happily holding down this garbage bag for mom!
Then after he was done helping me get all the stuff I was donating and throwing out separated, he proceeded to sit in this box -- so I couldn't throw it away.

I am also making sure she can't actually throw away some garbage.
And one more funny thing I wanted to share today! Look at how awesome this is that I got in the mail from Purina Cat Chow... it's a bag of Cat Chow with me and Pimp's picture on it!

They had asked me for high-res photo a while back, but I totally forgot and didn't know what it was for until this arrived. Fun, huh?

Pimp and I on a Cat Chow bag!
Funny story about this, too. (Purina, if you're reading, you're going to laugh too!)

So, a big box arrives at my house and I have no idea what it is. It has "Fragile" written on it, so I'm careful. It is all kinds of taped up with super-heavy-duty tape that doesn't want to cut or rip, so I work at even just opening the box for at least three minutes.

Once I get in the box, I see that it is full of packing peanuts. Pimp is pleased. He likes to bat them around. I try to figure out how to get them out of there to see what is underneath without making a huge mess.

Once I manage that, I notice that there is a ton of bubble wrap around whatever is in there. (Bubble wrap! Fun!) Yeah, no. This thing has bubble wrap wrapped around bubble wrap with huge clear packing tape securing each layer. I spend no less than 10 minutes trying to unwrap and cut the bubble wrap.

THEN I get in there and I see that it's a Cat Chow bag. There is a nice card on top of it from Cat Chow saying how nice it was to meet me earlier this year when I went up to visit and all. Very sweet!

To be honest, I don't even notice the bag. I am just slightly annoyed that I have to open it to see whatever is inside (at this point, I'm thinking they cleverly wrapped some kind of gift in a Cat Chow bag, because it's heavy, but clearly not with cat food).

So I start trying to open the bag, but it is practically super-glued shut. No cat food bag has ever been this hard to open! I contemplate just ripping it or taking scissors to it, but finally get it open (it's now been, I kid you not, 15 minutes).

And what is inside? More packing peanuts... and a piece of wood.

A piece of wood?! I have a sense of humor, but I was a little annoyed. All of this for a silly joke? Argh!

So I call my friend Tamar from I Have Cat and ask her if Cat Chow sent her something. (At this point I'm thinking they forgot to enclose whatever they meant to in the bag.) She says yes. I asked what they sent her...

And she says a Cat Chow bag with her picture. So I look at my bag, finally, and notice.

And felt completely silly and ridiculous.

Thank you, Cat Chow! This was honestly very sweet, and super cute. :)

Most Amazing Cat Agility Ever!

Cashmere and Puffy are some of the most talented (and in shape!) cats I've ever seen. These two fabulous felines do all kinds of crazy cat agility stunts!

They jump over super-tall walls and over poles that keep getting higher and higher. They run through tunnels and hop, hop, hop over stuff as fast as I've ever seen a kitty move -- and all without knocking anything over!

I'm just amazed by cat agility. I get excited when one of my cats simply comes when I call them or gets off the table if I say so... Heh.

NOTE FROM CUTE: Thursday is the absolute last day to donate to Santa Paws Drive! We are not taking any more toy or treats donations, but you can still donate cash or purchase raffle tickets for some amazing items! We've done so great so far, let's finish off strong and send these shelters as fabulous of a holiday as possible!

Penguin Slips on the Ice (and Makes the Cutest Sound!)

Apparently, ice can be a little bit slippery... even for penguins!

A group of penguins is just waddling along crossing then ice when whoops! A penguin slips on the ice and makes an adorable plop sound -- and his buddies make an even cuter sound asking him if he's OK!

(Or maybe they're telling him to get up keep it moving!)

The Sloths are Coming!

The sloths are coming! The sloths are coming!

Eventually anyway. They like to take their time, you know.

Aren't sloths one of the cutest animals ever on earth? I especially like the guy headed to Reception (he'll get there one day!) and the one in the birthday hat (1:09 if you watch nothing else!).

NOTE FROM CUTE: Today is the last day to donate toys and treats to my Santa Paws Drive! Cash donations and raffle ticket sales will stay open until December 20, but if you want to send shelter animals some presents, today is the day to head over to and do it!

Thank you so much for all your support, Cuteheads. This is going to be a great year for shelter kitties and doggies!

Ferret Steals Toilet Paper

Cats might make a mess by unraveling the toilet paper roll, but at least there's still some there when you need to use it.

Ferrets apparently don't mess around when they terrorize the TP... They just steal the whole roll -- and even hide it in a cabinet so you'll never find it!

NOTE FROM CUTE: Just two more days left to donate toys and treats to Santa Paws Drive!

Also, be sure to check out the Santa Paws Drive raffle. All tickets are only $1 and all proceeds go directly to the shelters! Some of the fab prizes: a huge PetFusion Scratcher Lounge, a ModernCat Cat Trapeze, a year or Feline or Canine Greenies, a whole year of Sweet Pickles Designs cat collars (one for every month!), a year "Soap of the Month" subscription for luxurious goat's milk soap from Happy Goats Soap, a BISSELL Turbo Sweeper pack, a custom pet portrait by artist BZTAT (I have one of Pimp and Moo!) and way more!

Two Cats Tuesday: Pimp and Moo's Winter Coats!

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! It's December, so Pimp and Moo are feeling especially festive (not that we're not always festive, of course!). So they decided to get all fancified in their new winter coats!

I have to admit that I'm a huge sucker for the dollar section at Target, so when I saw these... there was no question in the world that the boys needed them.

Psst... You all have to see what she put us in this time.
Surprisingly, I think they really liked these coats because they were both so cooperative! And by cooperative I mean that they just stayed wherever I positioned them and posed nicely for their mommy for a couple minutes.

We look like we're going skiing or something in these Santa-looking coats!
I swear I love Pimp and Moo more every single day. They are so good! And so cute, of course. But their faces when we play dress up...

Moo: Oh hai! Is this pose good? Pimp: Just freakin' pose already so we can get it over with, Moo.
Do you not melt when you see Moo's face?!

NOTE FROM CUTE: There are only 3 days left to donate toys and treats to my Santa Paws Drive! We're going to order everything that's been donated super soon so that we can get the presents off to the shelter doggies and kitties in time for Christmas!

Right now, the cats are way ahead of the dogs with toys (there are more cats than dogs in the shelters, so that's not a bad thing). If you have been waiting, now would be a great time to donate! Even one dollar helps. It all adds up!

The Nutcracker, as Performed by a Cat

This may be quite possibly the most ungraceful version of The Nutcracker ever.

That said, Kodi the cat sure puts a lot of energy and effort into his performance... even if it is a little spastic and jumpy! Bravo, Kodi! Bravo!

P.S. Only 4 more days to donate toys and treats to Santa Paws Drive! We have 750 kitties and 450 doggies waiting for Santa to come -- let's make sure they all get a present!

Running on the Treadmill with a Cat!

When it comes to exercising, it is very helpful to have a buddy. This way you can motivate each other and push each other when you're slacking.

I love running, so this video made me smile. What if your cat was your exercise buddy? Wouldn't that just be the perfect match? And wouldn't you kind of want to exercise more?

This kitty's name is Lyusya, and she is so into her running on the treadmill that she doesn't even want to stop when her mom is done!

And her special grumpy cat face has sparked a whole meme with people putting the funniest captions on her picture! They are so silly.

How to Catch a Cat for Christmas

Sometimes it can take some patience to catch a kitty. You "fish" for them with one of those feather on a string wand toys, and wait. Sometimes you might feel a bite, but usually that's just the line getting snagged on a nail.

But patience often pays off! Just keep at it and eventually, you might catch yourself a Christmas kitty!

P.S. This is our Twitter friend, @AmazingKimicat, in this video! Isn't she adorable?

P.P.S. I visited Moe on Tuesday and he is so adorable! He is flying to his forever home in Michigan this weekend and I just couldn't let him go without a snuggle. he has the loudest, strongest purr. There is some serious horsepower in that kitty!

Here are just a couple pictures... There will be more I'm sure when he gets to his forever home!

Moe is a love!

Vinyl Cat Scratches and Remixes on the Turntable!

Better than any big-name DJ out there, this fuzzball kitten takes his paw to his favorite Bob Marley vinyl record to mix things up a little bit.

Thing is, as he's scratching, it's him that ends up getting all mixed up. Just when we think he has it mastered, round and round he goes...

Big thanks to Cutehead Sonya S. for sharing this cute Vinyl Cat video with us!

NOTE FROM CUTE: Senior sisters Sera and Chloe who were dumped at animal control are still looking for a forever home. Please take a moment to read their story and share it. Thank you!

Cute Crusade: Senior Sera and Her Sister Chloe Need Our Help!

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today we have something very important to do. We're on a mission to get two sweet sisters the best holiday present ever -- a real forever home!

Sera and Chloe are two sweet girls who were dumped at Pompano Animal Control, the kill shelter near me. They were part of 20 cats that someone surrendered (20!), and are the lucky ones who are still there looking for a home. (We're not talking about what happened to the others.)

This is the picture I first saw of Sera. What is it about it?
When I first saw Sera's picture, she really touched me for some reason. I share cats all the time, and hope for the best, but this one... I honestly thought that one more cat wouldn't be that bad and really, really thought about running down there to bust her out of that cage.

But then I thought for another minute, and knew that wasn't right (I'm already over my cat limit), so I shared her on Facebook. A fabulous friend of Cute immediately had the same reaction I did. What is it about this sweet 12-year-old cat's face that tugs at heartstrings so much?

She went a step farther than me, and decided she would adopt her. She truly didn't need another cat, but that face...

Chloe's nose looks like a little heart, doesn't it?
We were excited for a couple hours, until we learned Sera wasn't alone. Her sister, Chloe, was also sadly sitting at the shelter, and we couldn't just leave her there to meet what would certainly be her fate. But our friend couldn't take two.

What to do? Cuteheads, I'm telling you I really thought hard about this one. I have never done this before, but I just couldn't pull Sera out of that place and leave her sister there. Surely there is someone out there who can adopt them both! And if we didn't at least try... I know I'd really regret it. And I know if anyone can make this miracle happen, it's us!

So begged and pleaded and we found a place that Sera and Chloe could stay safe for a little bit without even having a definite home to go to -- but it is only for two weeks. They can't stay there, and I refuse to let them go back to the shelter.

What these two gorgeous girls need is someone who can give them a real forever home, forever.

They've both seen the vet. Sera is about 12 years old (a sweet, sweet old lady who deserves to live her golden years in a warm home) and Chloe is about 8 year old (a gorgeous, regal Maine Coon is really is friendly, but is just scared and out of her element right now).

Can we do this? Can we find them a home? Can one of you maybe open your heart and your home to these to girls?
Sera soaking up some love and Chloe wishing she had a home.
I have no idea who in the world could surrender cats this age after having them so long, but it happened, and now we need to show Sera and Chloe that there are wonderful people out there who truly want the best for them.

Will you help? Please share this post far and wide. We don't have much time.

If anyone is interested in Sera and Chloe, please email me at dorian (at) yourdailycute (dot) com. We can transport anywhere in the U.S.! I know we Cuteheads can work out their ride, all we need is a home for them to go to.

Is it yours?

P.S. Pimp and Moo took the day off to let Sera and Chloe be Two Cats Tuesday today. They'll be back next week, but they thought this was really important to. :)

Tabby Kitten Takes Over Keyboard

You think you're going to get on the computer and type and actually do work? Not if this kitten has anything to do with it.

Little Kurumi immediately walks onto the keyboard and makes herself comfortable on top of her mom's hands whenever she uses the computer.

Does this happen to any of you? It kind of happens to me, but Moo is more of a paper-sitter.

Kitten Hates the Tissue in the Box

There is something in my box and I want it out of there now!

This angry kitten is not happy with the fact that there is tissue in the box she wants to sit in. Whatever was in the box is gone, and now that darn paper needs to get out of there, too.

Like, now. And she'll use force if she has to.

P.S. I'm running a half marathon this morning! The weather should be great and I'm super excited. I'll let you know how I do!

Cat Accidentally Wanders Through Univision Weather Report

Today's weather looks mostly cloudy with a chance of cat butt. Or perhaps it's partly purry!

There are several cats that make the Univision TV station parking lot their home, and sometimes they stroll into the newsroom like they own the place (of course they do!).

This time, this cat made his way into the weather report, and somehow the reporter managed to keep going without even cracking a smile. How come this cute stuff never happens when I watch the news?!

BONUS CUTE: Here's another cat wandering into a weather report! (This reporter does not even try to ignore the kitty. Cute!)

Thanks to Cutehead Heidi for sending this cute Univision weather cat video in!

Role Reversal: Our Turn to Wake the Cat Up!

Anyone with cats knows that when the cat wants to wake up, the whole house is awake. There is no sleeping through it if your kitty wants you to get up.

And now (finally!) someone had the chance to pull the same stunt on their cat.

Does this look familiar? Imagine the cat is a person and the person is the cat -- this is every morning in most of our houses. Now you know how it feels, kitty!

P.S. Thank you to everyone who stopped by the Santa Paws Drive Kickoff Pawty on Twitter last night. It was a huge success! We raised almost $400 and nearly 100 toys and treats for shelter animals!

Two Cats Tuesday: Moo Under the Christmas Tree (and #GivingTuesday!)

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today we have two exciting things.

First, we set up our Christmas tree last night and you-know-who couldn't wait to get under there. So far all the ornaments are intact, but we normally do a bet each year on when the first one will go down.

Anyone have any guesses?

Do I look like I'd knock ornaments off the tree?!
Today is also one of the best "shopping" days of the year. It's Giving Tuesday! Have you ever heard of it?

Apparently it's new this year, but I'm all for it (and Santa Paws Drive is an official partner!). It's the day when you're encouraged to give to charity and to others who are less fortunate, instead of normal shopping for ourselves for the holidays.

So today for Giving Tuesday, we decided to have our Kickoff Pawty for Santa Paws Drive on Twitter! We're going to be tweeting from 8-10 p.m. EST -- and we'll have lots of great prizes, tons of fun, bunches of good friends... and I'll be tweeting as Santa! (@SantaPawsDrive, that is!)

Please stop by if you can by searching hashtag #santapawsdrive during that time. The goal is to hang out with and meet new friends, spread the word about Santa Paws Drive and help boost donations so we can send shelter animals tons of holiday cheer!

If you do want to give for Giving Tuesday, I'd really appreciate if you gave a little to Santa Paws Drive. Our goal is $1,000 for each of our six shelters and enough toys to send each of the 750 cats and 450 dogs a gift. I know we can do it!

For more info and to donate, please visit Thank you all!

Maine Coon's Silly Drinking Dance

Sometimes you get so happy about something that you just have to do a little happy dance. I am pretty sure that's what this gorgeously fluffy Maine Coon is doing at her water bowl.

Yay fresh water! Cha cha cha.

NOTE FROM CUTE: Are you on Twitter? We're having a "pawty" for Santa Paws Drive from 8pm to 10pm EST Tuesday night using the hashtag #santapawsdrive. If you search for that, you'll see how much fun it will be!

We'll be having prizes and giveaways, and I'll be tweeting as @SantaPawsDrive. But most of all, we'll be getting together to get festive and spread the word and raise donations to help send shelter animals holiday presents. Please join in if you can!

RSVP and more info:

Can't make it, but just want to donate (yay!). Here's that link: Thank you!

Cat and Hedgehog Share a Bowl

There's no reason why everyone can't share, right? No matter if you're furry or spiky, sometimes it's fun to share a refreshing beverage with a buddy.

Like this hedgehog and cat sharing a bowl of milk!

P.S. I know cats aren't supposed to drink milk... but this is still a cute video. So let's just enjoy that part of it. :)

Moo Helps Decorate for Christmas - and Pumpkin Cheesecake!

Just a quick Cute today -- I'm totally worn out from Black Friday shopping!

I had bought a Christmas wreath and it was on the floor yesterday morning next to my desk. I was at the computer, doing who knows what on Facebook probably, when I looked down...

Moo-ey Christmas, everyone!
Seriously? Moo does the silliest things. I can always count on him to make me laugh. How in the world could that prickly wreath be a comfortable place to sit?

If it fits, I sits, Moo says!

And then I wanted to show you the pumpkin cheesecake I made for Thanksgiving. I promised to post a picture if it came out good... and it came out SO good! It was even layered.

Pumpkin Cheesecake, a la Cute!

It was soooooo good. So good!
Hope everyone is having a good long weekend. I've got lots of decorating to do still -- if Moo will ever get out of the wreath!

Cat Rides a Bike on His Daddy's Shoulders!

Bicycle courier Rudi Saldia started taking his cat, MJ, along with him on his rides when he was just a baby. MJ perched on his shoulders, and off they went all around the streets of Philadelphia.

The two have become quite a familiar site around the streets, and they've even made the local news! I know they'd make me smile if I passed them on the road!

P.S. I know it's Black Friday and everyone is shopping. If you can spare a few dollars, please consider donating some toys and treats to shelter animals through my! Every dollar helps. Thank you all!

Happy Thanksgiving, Cuteheads!

Happy Thanksgiving, Cuteheads!

This year, I am so grateful for so many things, but what I think I am most grateful for is for all of you, and all the amazing things we've been able to do when we work together.

I have honestly lost count of how many cats we've been able to rescue from kill shelters and find forever homes for -- and even get them there... thousands of miles away! None of it could happen without everyone here.

I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving, surrounded by all of the people and pets you love!

Also, for the record: Cheesecake is a mission to make. If you haven't tried it, I suggest you keep it that way. I tried last night and was up till almost 2:00 a.m. with the darn thing! I had no idea how long it took. If it comes out as pretty as I think it will (it's layered!), I'll post a picture on the Cute's Facebook page tomorrow when we cut it. All paws crossed!

Happy Thanksgiving, Cuteheads!

P.S. If you didn't see Pimp and Moo's turkey costumes on Tuesday, head on over and check them out!

High-Flying Cat Jumps Six Feet in the Air for Toys!

Nya the cat can jump up to reach her toys -- all the way on the ceiling!

Her mommy hung a mouse from a string higher and higher, and each time, Nya would jump up and grab it... all the way until the mouse was more than six feet up in the air!

Two Cats Tuesday: Pimp and Moo are Turkeys!

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! It's almost Thanksgiving, and the boys are so cute today that you'll just want to gobble them up! They are dressed as turkeys!

This may be one of the most ridiculous costumes we've ever gotten, and we got it from Nip and Bones (where we also got their breakfast Halloween costumes this year!).

Gobble gobble!
Feast your eyes on the whole outfit.
Is that turkey on my head rolling his eyes?!
He better not be rolling his eyes.
Pimp just sits still when he wears his costumes. But Moo... he'll happily walk all over the house in whatever I put him in. He just doesn't care. He is so silly!

So I took a video to prove it. He's strutting his turkey stuff!

Scout is Hungry!

Scout is well-fed, just like any loved kitten. But just like any kitten, she swears she's starving... and wants food now.

Did you hear her?

Maru Has a Pacifier?

Maru is one special cat. Why is it that everything he does is so cute? Here he is with what looks like a pacifier, just contentedly lying around with it in his mouth.

And here's the funny part: He is talking more with that thing in his mouth than I have every heard him meow in any of his other Maru videos!

Kitty Cat Massage Therapy

When you lie on this ginger cat's couch, you're guaranteed the most relaxing back massage ever.

Besides his magnificent kneading skills, he also has the wonderful ability to remain calm and keep the cat massage gently going, no matter how much talking is going in the background.

Happy Caturday, everyone!

Peaceful (and Flexible!) Cat Meditation

I don't know about you all, but this has been one hectic, crazy week!

What I think we all really need is to lie on our backs, kick up our feet up and hug our legs to our chest like this kitty... and just meditate all the stress away.

On second thought, I'm pretty sure I'm not this flexible.

P.S. Have you donated to my Santa Paws Drive yet? Every dollar helps! Our six shelters have more than 750 cats and 450 dogs combined, and our goal is to send each and every single one of them at least one Christmas present!

Anything You Can Do, Cats Can Do Better!

Cats do way more than just eat and sleep... They also open doors and dry their faces off with towels and open food containers and check what's in the fridge and flush toilets -- and so much more!

Do your kitties do any of these smart things?

Most Persistent Box Cat Ever!

Here is the situation: There is a soda box with a hole in the side. There is a cat who is approximately 10 times (at least!) bigger than the hole.

But this cat really wants to get in that box... and is not going to give up until he succeeds!

P.S. We're off to a great start with Santa Paws Drive! We're three days in, and I'm so excited for the progress so far! If you haven't already, take a look at the six shelters we're collecting donations for -- one was hard-hit by Hurricane Sandy in New York, three others are no-kill, non-profits in the U.S., one is in Hungary and one is in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus!

Two Cats Tuesday: Pimp's Face, Moo's Mountain and a Little Meow Update!

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Well, I guess it's technically Three Cats Tuesday today, huh? So many kitties, so little Tuesdays!

First up, we have a most wonderful montage of pictures of Pimp's heart-shaped nose. If his little nose doesn't make you want to smooch his face, I think you need to get your face-smooching reflexes checked.

The line for smooches starts here.
Next up, it's Moo atop his mountain. What mountain, you ask? Well the mountain of comforter and clean sheets I made, foolishly thinking that piling it high would keep a kitty off of it.

No, sir. When I got home, he was perched up there and had made a cat-sized crater in that mountain of clean stuff.

Mount Moo.
And last, but certainly not least, long-time readers will remember Little Meow, my former parking lot kitty who found a most wonderful home with my friend, Giselle.

Little Meow had a rough start in her new home. She did not like Giselle's husband much (she has never really liked men!) and had a few potty issues. But after plenty of love and patience, she has become an absolute princess.

Giselle sent me this picture of Little Meow last week -- she not only likes her husband now, but she has become his lap kitty! These makes me happier than I have words for. I loved Little Meow like my very own out there in my office parking lot for years.

Little Meow the princess! (See her ear-tipped ear? She's a former feral!)
P.S. In case you missed it yesterday, Santa Paws Drive has officially started! It's a toy and treat drive I started four years ago to give shelter animals some holiday presents (our kitties and doggies at home get lots of gifts -- these animals deserve some, too!). Please check it out and spread the word, and donate if you can spare a few dollars. If not, simply share. Every little bit helps! Thank you!

Super Fast, Super Flat Cat

When running after his toys, this kitty uses a scamper and skedaddle technique -- get real flat and low and shuffle along the bed.

Don't blink or you might miss it!

P.S. Today we are officially kicking off Santa Paws Drive! For those of you who may not know, this is an annual toy and treats drive that I started four years ago (like Toys for Tots, but for animals!). It is my absolute favorite thing to do each year!

We'll be announcing the shelters we chose and opening up for donations around noon today. Please like Santa Paws Drive on Facebook and follow @SantaPawsDrive on Twitter to keep up -- and of course I'll keep sharing here, too!

Neutered Cat Doesn't Recognize Himself in the Mirror

Getting neutered is a very important part of a boy cat's life. The thing is, things are a little different afterwards...

That and you have to wear a ridiculously unstylish cone on your head sometimes. Who in the world is that cat with no fashion sense anyway?

Lion Cubs Give Big Hugs!

After caring for this bunch of lion cubs, it was time for this zoo worker to say goodbye to them on his last day of work. So they all ran over and huddled around him and crawled all over his lap and licked his face and nuzzled his nose... and give him the most adorable baby lion hugs I've ever seen.

They seem just like big kittens when they're this small! Moo does almost every single one of these moves.

NOTE FROM CUTE: We're officially going to start taking donations for Santa Paws Drive on Monday. Just one more day of waiting! This is my most favorite time of the year!

Loyal Cat Salutes Owner on Command

What you are about to see is a incredibly rare case of a cat actually acknowledging that she does not rule the house. Not possibly, you say?

See what happens when this kitty's daddy says, "Salute the captain." What a cute thing for a cat to learn!

P.S. We started calling the shelters that we chose for this year's Santa Paws Drive yesterday! These are my favorite phone calls! It is so nice to give some good news and something for all the animals to look forward to!

As we talk to them, I'm posting "sneak peeks" on the Santa Paws Drive Facebook page, so everyone can kind of see what states and countries they are in. Follow along... it's fun!

And thanks to Cute's fab friend, Tamar of I Have Cat, for sharing this cute Cat Salutes Owner on Command video with us!

Sleepy Baby Alpaca Dozes Off

Monty the baby alpaca has had a heck of a day. I imagine he probably walked around some, ate some and sat some... and now he's just all tuckered out.

But it's too early, he must be thinking! Can't fall asleep... must... not... fall... zzzzz. (The music makes this so much fun!)

NOTE FROM CUTE: Yesterday, the other elves and I made a last-minute decision that we want this year's Santa Paws Drive to support a shelter affected by Hurricane Sandy. So even though nominations were officially closed Nov. 2, please share if you know a rescue or shelter that could use the help.

We know they could certainly use a little holiday cheer, and we hope we can put a smile on some furry (and human!) faces this holiday season when they need it most.

If you know of a shelter affected by Sandy, please leave a comment on this Facebook thread or here in these comments. I'll be watching both.

Thanks, everyone. I hope you'll help support us this year. We'll start taking donations on Monday!

Silly Cat Sticks His Tongue Out

Honestly, at what age does it become not appropriate to stick your tongue out at someone? I think this cat has the right idea!

I can't tell you how many times sticking my tongue out would have come in handy at work in meetings or in conversations with some people. Can we start doing this as adults again, please?

Show 'em how it's done, kitty!

P.S. Who else is happy the election is over and we don't have to watch those obnoxious political ads on TV anymore? Yay!

Two Cats Tuesday: I Wear a 34MOO

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! It's Election Day in the U.S., so what we need is a little shenanigans to lighten up the mood... and Moo is just the kitty for the job!

The boys sleep wherever they please, and their favorite spots rotate as they go through phases of what they like. This latest phase of Moo's is a little, um, risque.

See, he's found this spot in the closet where I keep my bras...

These cups are the perfect size for curling up in!
Apparently I wear a 34MOO. The silliest part is how serious and innocent he looks snuggled up in there. He has no idea that's an unmentionable!

Meanwhile on the couch (where kitties are supposed to sleep...
On a serious note, I hope everyone gets out and votes today. It's super important. Pimp and Moo don't get political, so we're not going to say much else... Just vote!

Maid Kitten Will Dust Your Floors

If you have wood or tile floors, you might want to enlist the help of a kitten like this to clean them.

He is completely enamored by the duster (even though it is more than double his size!) and drags it around all over the house. No doubt cleaning all along the way!

I wonder if he does windows as well...

BONUS CUTE: Another kitten dragging random stuff around the house!
