DOGS AND CATS LYING TOGETHER.

Cue apocalypse.

That ticking noise you might be able to hear is the awwwww-meter pegging.

definitely a sweet, sweet video.

but, with the world the way it is...??? it's surely not all the cuteness i need today.

i require at least 4 panda bears (preferably either sleepy or playful), 7 baby two-toed sloths, a whole mess o' french bulldogs and some baaaaaaaby miniature ponies kicking up their hind legs.

thanks in advance!

It's cute, but it doesn't meet my RDA for cute. Needs more Emmanuel Lewis.

The mom is just fattening them up so her puppies can eat 'em.

No, I'm sorry. It's not. My need for cuteness is insatiable, dammit.

Oh dear. Oh God. Methinks it time for the BBC to be taken outside and shot.

Cuteness: do you mean British people doing news reports or the small animals?
posted by norabarnacl3 at 12:31 PM on May 13, 2008


I enjoy the peeping noises the tiny, tiny kittens make.

I think it needs more Emmanuel Levinas or Wyndham Lewis.

I'll see your British Dog 'Fosters' Kittens and raise with American Dog 'Fosters' Kittens (and other cross species adoptions) [video | 2:41]

This was shown on the local news on Mopther's day, and the capper they showed was footage from here, about 1 minute in. Must see. Leopard changes her spots.

I wonder if those kittens are going to have trouble recognizing DOG = POTENTIAL PREDATOR later in life. I'm not so worried about the dogs thinking CAT = POTENTIAL PLAYMATE since that seems common enough already and normally has sublethal (yet highly entertaining) consequences.

I'm going to swing the other way and say, "too much cuteness." Now go back and start over, chop chop, no time for dillydallying, there's got to be something out there that fulfills my cuteness needs more precisely. (HINT: I like giant trilobites)

Cute, sure. But didja see the SIZE of the egg in the linked video?

Can you imagine how loud that would have been?

Giant isopod! Not a trilobite, but also not a fossil.

Sorry to point out that the leopard that 'fostered' the monkey wandered away after a while, leaving it to die if I recall the (very good) documentary correctly.

Also, am I gonna have to write 'fostered' with the little single quotes for the rest of my life? Why?

Cheshire cats are weird.
posted by Sys Rq at 1:06 PM on May 13, 2008


This is indeed adorable, but it's actually fairly common with domestic animals. The mothering instinct is extremely powerful and it happens quite a bit with really strange combinations.

It has also been observed in wild animals and brooms.

Meh, they're cute all right. Wish I was lying around mewling vs. working today.

Yeah, the infant baboon succumbs to the cold and the leopard goes off to devour its mother. It's actually pretty horrifying if you anthropomorphize it.

I've always been fond of crow and kitten.

Storytime: "When Harry Met Squeaky"

When I was a kid, we rescued a tiny abandoned kitten from our vet, who was going to have to put it to sleep otherwise. At the time, we had a dachsund mama whose last puppy had just been weaned. Great timing for FREE FOODS!

The kitten, Harry, nursed the wiener dog, Squeaky, to great success for a couple of months, and after it was too old, it occasionally grabbed hold just for the sake of nostalgia. They spent all night cuddled up forever.

more cuteness than you can poke a stick at!
posted by UbuRoivas at 2:54 PM on May 13, 2008


Ooh, that last one was really adorable Ubu. I really liked the fuzzy little butt. I wonder if I could train it to sit on my shoulder, nuzzle against my chin, and make little chittering noises like my bird does.

Because that would be so freaking cool.
posted by quin at 2:58 PM on May 13, 2008


and you could amuse your friends by training it to run up their trouser legs, in return for a reward - like a dead frog, or something.
posted by UbuRoivas at 3:06 PM on May 13, 2008


In regards to Sys Rq's link, although the bit with the hedgehogs is insanely cute, I also find it rather incredibly sad. Four little hedgehogs snuggling up against a silent, unmoving brush makes my heart hurt a little.

6/6:30, you're forgetting that this might be the best thing that's ever happened to a brush. As someone who is in fact, 1/4 hairbrush on my father's side, this is a great day for my people.

That would be Bitch Fosters Kittens. (See cow/bull thread above.)

Ambrosia Voyeur, that video is amazing! I can't wait for the Disney animated version. (I must say, however, that the leopard showed way more self control than I would have -- that monkey looked delicious!)

I'd squee over this video but I'm still trying to clean my keyboard after my head asploded when I read this story about the week-old behbeh giraffe at the Oakland Zoo which keeps tripping over his own legs because he's amazed by the pompom on the end of his tail.

BLAM. crap. it happened again.

I saw the video your great-grandmother posted in her photobucket (HOTTyoureyesonly.flv) showing your grandfather's conception, and I say "bravo!"

Golden Retrievers are lovely. I had one living with me for some years and she became wonderful friends with my kitten, Lizzie. Lizzie was the only one interested in Indiana (the dog)'s nipple but she'd be down there suckling and doing the ol' paw kneading thing for hours. Eventually, she had kittens of her own and one of my great regrets in this most regrettable life is that I never took a photo of Lizzie suckling on Indy whilst all her little kittens suckled on her. It was sooooo keeyoot.
