Rule of Cuteness #22: A Curled-up or tucked paw is cute

...and if your eyes match the carpet, BONUS!

Other bonus features: head tilt, teeny tail, and I can hear the purring if I get really close to the screen... ;) Thanks Jiminy S.

Rule of Cuteness #21: Eye Capsules

OK, People, give this a chance here. Eye "capsules", as seen on the baby Wombat on the bottom photo, are cute.

Sure, this wombat could rip your heart out with his nails faster than you could say 'shrimp on the—" but his eye capsules are still cute.

Rule of Cuteness #19: Dainty paws

First of all, this image comes from "HedgeHogCentral.com." It's the most brillo name ever. Home of the INTERNATIONAL HEDGEHOG ASSOCIATION, PEOPLE! Please look at this logo—it's a HedgeGlobe logo. Oop, I mean "IHA."

Next, let's all take a look at this month's winner of the "Hedgehog of the Month" contest; "Sable", also known as Miss March. Sable has the most prosh, teeny paws, and deserves a standing ovation. Absolutely anerable.

Especially her one limp paw. Too much. Thanks for sending in, E to the C!

Rule #18: Have a teeny tiny tail

Would you please just look at Master Fluff. Yes, the same Master Fluff of "Doc-tare Pepp-are Manshons" fame. She has the smallest cutest tail ever captured on film. And if you lean really close to the screen, you can snorgle her ears.

Remember the deal; "If you bring me dee treats, I come out of dee manshon." Wise, wise, words, Master Fluff.

Rule #17: Have tiny ears

We all know that cheek puff is anerable. Duh!

But we have yet to document ear size. Obvy, the following otter is modeling ideal cute ear size, which is pretty much equivalent to a non-existant ear. So basically, less ear is better. I'm just sayin'.

CHEEK PUFF ALERT!

Rule #16: Keep your eyes at the height of your nose *and* have a five-head, (large forehead) and make sure your body is as tall as your head.

Oh, and gingham.

Rule #16—Shoot. Nevermind.

For the longest time, I was planning to do Rule #16: Possums Can Never, Ever, EVER be Cute. I mean, it has ALWAYS been irrefutable—undeniable! Until now.

As my younger sister said as soon as she grew strong enough to beat _me_ up for a change: "Ah! so NOW the TABLES ARE TURNED!"

It's true. Possums can be cute, and here is the proof, thanks to one Meg C.:

And again in an artful pose, just waiting to be re-created in your Drawing 101 class:

Big props to serg at University of SouthAustralia who posted the original photos that Meg C. found. Schweet.

Rule of Cuteness #15: Disproportionate ratio between relative ear to head size

Let's just make this rule official and stop messing around. This guy is totally otterlicious—note teeny webbing in hands.

This is "Snowdrop" the otter, from the Dartmoor Wildlife Park in Devon, UK. He needs 120CCs of milk STAT!

Thanks for the tip, Lyssa B.!

// AMENDMENT! Due to the Great Jerboa Conflict of December '07, rule #15 has been amended to include OVERSIZED ears as well as small ears. This amendment shall be named The "Burton-Oakes Corollary." Thanks to Rule-Amendment Sender-Inner Kim B-O. //

Rule of Cuteness #14: If an everyday, small item makes you look small, it's cute

Would you just look at the size of that green Post-It® note next to this kittens' "litter box"? Now, look at the Post-Its® on your desk—now look at the kitten. Repeat!
