Cute Animal of the Day: Kittens and Drawers

The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee understands that cats enjoy semi-enclosed spaces to watch the world from.

As you can see, two cats fit comfortably in one drawer.

Have an open thread, or post your own cute animals for everyone.

Oh no! There was no cute animal of the day yesterday! Here, to make up for it, are a MULTITUDE of adorable otters, just for you!

Cute Animals: Animals that don’t rhyme with rat.

(by chris the cynic)

Ok, so I’ve been meaning to do one of these on wombats for a while but none of the free stock photos are wombats. Which is disappointing. Maybe something else that rhymes with rat, I thought. For example Meerkats. I know there are free stock photos of them, but before I looked I looked up “rat”. Here are some of the results I got:

Not a rat:

(It is a nutria.)

Not a rat:

(It is a water vole.)

(It is a chipmunk.)

Cute Animal Monday #1

(Posted by kisekileia.)

I have been remiss in writing cute animal posts lately. In my last cute animal post, on April 9, I promised weapons-grade cute in the next post. I am now delivering on this promise.

I have found the cutest puppy ever. Her name is Misa Minnie. You can find her on YouTube here and on Facebook here. I love not just Misa’s adorableness, but also the gentle, sweet way her trainer talks to her. Misa’s┬áextreme cuteness first became widely known when Cute Overload posted this video of her playing patty-cake:

And then she learned how to go shopping:

From Misa’s Facebook page, here’s how tiny she is compared to a person:

Here she is in a fancy dress. She wears lots of pink and usually has a cute little bow on her forehead.

And here she is today, with a camera:

Misa Minnie is training to be a therapy dog. I can easily see how her adorableness would make people feel better. ­čÖé

Cute Animal Tuesday #14

Since this is the first Cute Animal Tuesday I’ve done since Easter, here are some bunnies for Easter.

This lovely bunny comes from Jebarooney on Facebook.

Cute Overload describes this picture as a ‘Bunny Board Meeting‘. The bunnies do seem to be quite intently crowded around their pile of delicious grass.

Bunny Board Meeting from Cute Overload

People keep sending me this picture, which comes from r/funny on Reddit. I wonder why. Comments there say the picture was taken on Okunoshima, known as Bunny/Rabbit Island in Japan. Apparently in the late 1920s through World War II, chemical weapons development and testing took place on the island, with tests sometimes done on rabbits :(. Those rabbits were killed when the weapons factory was demolished. However, after World War II was over, the island was turned into a park, and rabbits were released on the island to live free in peace. The island is still a park, with a small museum about poison gas and lots of beautiful bunnies. (Source: Wikipedia.)

Crazy bunny lady

This video is from After The Rain Rabbitry. After The Rain Rabbitry’s videos have a consistent theme: Somebody tries to line up a litter of adorable baby bunnies in a nice orderly row, but then the bunnies squirm and wiggle and move all over the place, and the camera tries to keep up. The videos are all pretty similar, except that they have different cute little baby bunnies at different ages, but they’re also all very cute.

I have plans for next week’s cute animals already. They won’t be bunnies, but they will be VERY adorable. Seriously, there is weapons-grade cute coming.

So, pretty much everyone who posts stuff here, me included, has been swamped in the past week and a half, and we have all failed at routinely getting things up. There’s at least one post in the pipeline, but people have to get stuff together.

In the meantime, here are some cute animals. These came up when I discovered that the AND operator is important when doing searches for things like “fluffy AND adorable AND baby AND bunnies,” because otherwise there will be stray pictures of things that you do not want to see. Many, but not all, of these pictures are in fact fluffy adorable baby bunnies.

This picture is from Tumblr. I’m not sure of the original source. It’s cute though!Bunnies from tumblr

This sweet little bunny appears to have been originally posted by Fra-Emer on DeviantArt, and has been reposted by We Heart It.

I’m not sure exactly why these came up in a search for bunnies, but they’re adorable. They were posted by 2damnfunny.com.

And now for a heartwarming picture from A Cute A Day.

Cute Animal Tuesday #13: Mouse Deer

In response to last week’s request to see mouse deer, which are not really either mice or deer, here is one, from Zooborns:

And here are a mouse deer mother and baby, also from Zooborns. Zooborns has lots of interesting information about mouse deer under the “mouse deer” tag:

And here are three mouse deer from The Fabulous Web:

There is also a lovely painting of two mouse deer by Sasitha Weerasinghe here, on Fine Art America.

Hey, this isn’t a mouse deer. It’s a deer mouse! How did that get in here? It gets to stay because it is cute, and so are its babies. It comes from funkman.org.

And another cute little mouse deer from Simon and Finn.
