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!

Thanks to Tamar at I Have Cat for sending this adorable video over!

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.

P.S. We're still here! Thank goodness the world didn't end today, because we have TONS more Cute to share with everyone!

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!

Cat Chasing His Tail in a Bucket

You'd think that in such a small space like a bucket, a cat could finally catch his tail... but you'd be wrong.
