Just.. Awwww.

Although that cat looks a mite uncomfortable being monkeyhandled in the last pic.

But still... Awwwww

There's something sublime about the post titles:

- Tiger and piglets
- Kitten and a puppy
- Kitten and a hedgehog
- Guinea pig and a dog
- Ducks and a kitten
- Dog and a horse

I think i'm going to use one of those instead of a string of curse-words.

*steps on Lego blocks in bare feet*
"Dog and a horse!!!"

Because the picture of the tiger and the piglets made me curious, a few more pics and some backstory here.

That's not a mouse. That's a rat. Very cute regardless.

I should get some pics of my rats with my SO's cats, but the cats are terrified of the rats. The rats are pretty non-plussed about the cats, though.

The monkey & cat ventriloquist act looks like a winner.

Thank you, srboisvert.

I wonder if the tiger appreciates the fact that the piglets are wearing the skins of it's dead relatives?

Why do I find this so oddly excellent?

Is it the sparseness? The almost haiku like presentation? Is it the monkey yoking up the cat? Why are animals so funny?

I love it? Yes!

Awww indeed. : )

My dog cuddles up with his toys like the cat and toy chick pic.

And the dog and horse pic reminds me of when I went to visit my grandparents shortly after I got Barney. There's a stable in their neighborhood, and I was walking Barney near there. I got to talking to a guy who was there while Barney was doing his thing, and it turned out that his granddaughter had a horse in that stable who was also named Barney. Of course I had to take Barney the dog to meet Barney the horse! I held my dog up and the two sniffed each other. It was very cute. : )

I have a sense that, for a lot of these, the next picture in the series involves evisceration.

With a fast enough shutter speed, anything can look like friendship.

Thanks. I really needed that today.

Ohhhhhhh! The monkey! The monkey holds the kitty! Now I dead from cute!

Er, in other words- thank you so much for sharing; awesome link!

These are cute. Especially the monkeys.

Note to loquacious: a few years ago, someone corrected my use of nonplussed, and I've been grateful ever since, so I thought I'd do the same for you, and get to sound like a smarty-pants in the baragain. Though it seems as if it should mean "blase and unruffled," it actually means "confused and at a loss for words."

That's what I hate about rats -- throw a curve ball at them, and they clam up. Come on, rats -- spit it out.

The "poorly" hedgehog and the squirrel is divine, as is the cat holding a stuffed animal. And the tiger's expression as it sleeps is wonderful; looks like any domestic cat, really.

Although I have to agree that some of these probably weren't all that happy in the next frame. The dog and horse one in particular - I think the dog started yapping and running away about 1 second later.

heh... breakfast in bed! :)

"Breakfast In Bed" would seem to imply that the dog is about to wolf down that cute white cat that he's embracing so tenderly.

dear livii,

My mother owns a miniature dachshund. This miniscule animal likes to go bark at the horse that lives in the field next door. Or, she did. One day the horse, across the field, looked up and came at the poor doggie at a gallop. The dog, terrified, remained where she was. The horse slowed as it approached until it came to a full stop just in front of the still petrified dog. Then the horse nudged the miniature dachshund quite gently with its nose. The dog pissed everywhere and yelped its way under the deck.

There's a Polar Bear Fanclub!

This just goes to show that an animal predator's natural instincts to consume easily reachable prey are wholly suspended by the presence of a camera.

shortly after i forwarded this to a few people, i think the site was overloaded. I pdf'd though, it ya want it Al.

Overloaded now. However, the first working link on google search for letsbefriends is worth looking at.

the first working link on google search

Oh, googly... that's your solution to everything.

Here's a bunch more. And one more. (I've linked to these on my weblog previously.)

I hate to admit it, soyjoy, but you may be right.

It sure is strange
how it took falling in love with you,
getting married so we
could get divorced for me
to miss our friendship.
Could we be friends again?


It's all yours man.

I'm sorry. I just continued googly's derail. As you were.

But blogspot is blogger is google. Those sites can be overloaded? Oops.

Google saves Google's Blogger ass. In Firefox, you can right click on the missing images and see them.
