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.

I love foldy kitten paws! Gorgeous kitty. Nice lighting.

I love it when it's not just a beautiful animal, but also stunning photography.

 |  May 05, 2006 at 01:47 PM

That is such a sweet kitty cat!! :)

 |  May 05, 2006 at 01:48 PM

AWWWW, this is JUST what I needed to see on a Friday! My favourite colour, green, styled by an absolutely beautiful kitty-cat, in a photo which is the epitome of peace. All is well.

p.s. I need this kitty. Now.

Yes! Curl up your paw!! It's about time this got added to the Rules of Cuteness list. My big handsome black lab curls up his paws when he stretches and it is very cute. As is this beautiful little kitten I want to take home with me.

bubahs found a beam!!!

Talk about well posed... this look like a cover shot for some high end magazine.... instead of Vouge maybe Purr magizine... *g*

 |  May 05, 2006 at 02:00 PM

Wow! What a gorgeous kitty!

That looks an awful lot like another sunbeam photo here on CO. I wonder if it's the same photog?

 |  May 05, 2006 at 02:06 PM

ahhhh... such beauty!

 |  May 05, 2006 at 02:10 PM

look at the stripey tail! i loves the stripes tails.

 |  May 05, 2006 at 02:20 PM

Too much kitty goodness.

The feline-noir lighting is brilliant. Does kitty travel with her own photographer, as Marlene Dietrich did?

Winner of America's Next Top Kitty lands the cover of Vogue Feline, May Issue.

Looking healthier, calmer and happier - so insiders say - than she has for months, supermodel Cat Moss poses for fans and photographers...

 |  May 05, 2006 at 02:35 PM

Ooooh, head tilt!
What a little beauty!

 |  May 05, 2006 at 02:42 PM

I thought cat people bought carpet the color of their cat's *food*, not eyes!

 |  May 05, 2006 at 02:51 PM

WHY don't you have any BABY SLOTHS??? Check this out for maximum cuteness:

 |  May 05, 2006 at 02:54 PM

oh, sorry, i just looked in unusual animals! anyway ...sloths are still darn cute.

 |  May 05, 2006 at 02:55 PM

She looks like she is waiting for her lost love to show up...looking so forlorn, and waiting, ever so patiently, with her paw over her heart...."sigh".

AWWWW!!!! I wanna snorgle her!

 |  May 05, 2006 at 03:28 PM

Look at her little paw stretched out with her tiny, dainty little fingernails. I can almost see her kneading the carpet and purring!

 |  May 05, 2006 at 03:44 PM

"Look at me. I am purrrrfect!"

 |  May 05, 2006 at 03:44 PM

My goodness. She looks like she's about to burst into song!

 |  May 05, 2006 at 03:47 PM

So precious!

 |  May 05, 2006 at 03:53 PM

"I'd rather... just...

Stop that, stop that! You're not going to do a song while I'm here."

The photographer had a eye for the artistic. To those who don't know what I mean the cat is stll very cute.-Wdds Walker

Hey, I just discovered you guys this week (followed link from youknitwhat.blogspot.com), then, lo and behold, my Entertainment Weekly comes in the mail and cuteoverload.com is on their 'Must List' this week! Which means two things:

1)I'm two steps ahead of Entertainment Weekly and

2)Well...you're in Entertainment Weekly! How cool is that?

bees on pie
 |  May 05, 2006 at 06:55 PM

First of all, Entertainment Weekly is the ONLY thing I have time to read, second of all, getting on the Must List is just this side of getting Slash-dotted—CHEERS all around!

 |  May 05, 2006 at 07:02 PM

This is a kitters most fine, tho the color is way better as cat eyes than as carpeting... lived with a bunch of that stuff for years, ecghh.

But what I want to know is, if the submitter is "Jiminy S." then what's the "S" for? Squicket?

 |  May 05, 2006 at 07:30 PM

Entertainment Weekly: that's 1,830,000 readers, kids - I work in PR, and getting mentioned in the 'Must List' is positively Grail-Like. Congratulations!

 |  May 05, 2006 at 07:52 PM

so charming...her left aft paw is kneading...i just recently found out that most cats are left pawed. interesting software wiring--explains some things about them... wonder if that had anything to do with cats being regarded as evil (what idiots thought THAT up?) in history.

 |  May 06, 2006 at 02:56 AM

Just a little ray of sunshine....

I have a mostly white cat (Maria) with a stripy tail and patches on her head. I've always wanted to know what she looked like as a kitten--and now I know! All this kitty is missing is Maria's crossed eyes.

 |  May 06, 2006 at 04:41 AM

Oh em gee. That kitten looks like ours who died last year, but with a shorter tail and not-blue eyes. Very adorable.

 |  May 06, 2006 at 05:11 AM

What a sweet kitteh! She clutches the sunbeam to her soft li'l chest, not to let it go.

"Jiminy Squicket"

Theo, very good! Chirps to you!

 |  May 06, 2006 at 07:10 AM

cutest picture EVER!

 |  May 06, 2006 at 10:22 AM

deirdre, no i read something that says "you are born left handed [in this case pawed] and you become right handed after commiting your first sin" so most cats being left pawed doesn't mean they're evil
O,M,G, i just did a long boring note! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!

 |  May 06, 2006 at 02:27 PM

does anybodyhere have a white cat? did you know that if it has blue eyes,its deaf? and if it has one blue eye which ever side its on is the side its deaf on

Wonder What The Daydreming Is About.....I'm Surrounded By Tiny Little Mice.....There's No Where For Them To Go.....Ahhhhh I'll Let Them Live Another Day And Just Eat My Fancy Feast

 |  May 06, 2006 at 02:53 PM

Aw, what a cute kitty! I love the head tilt and the stripy tail!

 |  May 07, 2006 at 02:18 PM

What a perfect photo! This looks like it could be a greeting card!

 |  May 08, 2006 at 05:20 PM

Our kitten looks just like her! Which breed is she? She's so beautiful!

 |  May 21, 2006 at 02:06 PM
