OMG so beautiful!!!!!! My heart just stopped. I have a question I have had this site on my home page for sometime. I tried sending some pics to see if they would be accepted for the first time but when I had sent it it came back with a failure notice *sobs* I clicked the link to the left cuteoverload@gmail.com is this still a valid place to send these pictures?

There's a typo in the Tanja Askani link, a supernumerary "+" at the end.

 |  Aug 11, 2006 at 10:16 PM

That is incredible. So cute and amazing.

 |  Aug 11, 2006 at 10:26 PM

Holy... wow. Who knew? This is just mind-blowing (or maybe it's just late).

Far too cute for their own good.

Oh, I love Finchen (the deer) and her friend, whose name I THINK is Shirshasana. Have you seen Finchen with her other friend, the doggie?

 |  Aug 11, 2006 at 10:36 PM

...that is absolutely heartwarming. Thank you meg.

 |  Aug 11, 2006 at 10:36 PM

Oh my god. How cute is that? Two gentle animals sharing some gentle cuddling moments.

My overworked mother thanks you so very much.

 |  Aug 11, 2006 at 10:54 PM

That's a large bun-bun.

 |  Aug 11, 2006 at 10:55 PM

I agree that bun has been eating well!! I also love how they match.

 |  Aug 11, 2006 at 10:56 PM

Their furs and colors match! How sweet!:)

 |  Aug 11, 2006 at 11:05 PM

awww! what a cute and well-matched pair. the middle pic would make a great world peace poster.

or holiday card. ^_^

 |  Aug 11, 2006 at 11:17 PM

All I have to say is OH JEBUS! :| Does it get any better?

 |  Aug 11, 2006 at 11:46 PM

(. _ .)...

That's my facial expressions while looking at those.
Rabbits? Baby deer?! It's too much!

 |  Aug 11, 2006 at 11:56 PM

How amazing it is!
I wish they get along happy forever!

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 01:03 AM

I have never seen more heart~felt photos than I saw on this post. OMGoodness, how beautiful and inspiring to us humans ... LOVED every pixel of it!

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 01:47 AM

911 was an inside job. Research it for yourselves instead of asking the government 'why?' !!!

Seriously, people, play a more progressive part of tomorrow, Don't sit around and hope everything cool.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 02:36 AM

I'm SO glad these got posted!

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 03:22 AM

That bunny looks scared in the first pic, but so would i if a deer was sucking my ear.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 03:25 AM

Christina -- that's the right mailbox, all right. It gets full fairly regularly though. Keep trying until you don't get one of those "undeliverable" notes back.

"Me" -- Go post your theories on Michael Moore's blog. Not here, please.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 04:13 AM

The springtime pic is the sweetest thing ever!!!

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 04:15 AM

Ryan...love da faces! :)

My old cat, Mouse, was snorgled by a deer, too! Such a heartstopping moment. I was watching out the front window, and couldn't believe that the deer had really noticed Mouse and was walking sloooowly over. Mouse just kept seated in his "hamburger cat pose" and the deer snorgled the top of his head!

Very very cool. These pics bring warm cuddly fuzzies to my heart!

And, Me, we come here to get AWAY from people like you!!!

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 05:15 AM

heheheh. They look like an old couple who dresses to match each other!

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 05:29 AM

aaahh! "hamburger cat pose?" i squee with delight imagining the cuteness of THAT!

I found a bunch more amazing photos from this photographer here:

Wow! I was going to post my favorites, but there are just too many. As a French Bulldog owner, though, I have to admit a special fondness for this goofy looking example of the breed:

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 05:54 AM

They look like they're whispering secrets to each other. (But nice ones, not conspiracy theories. No, never that.)

Burgering is what we always called it when the cat is sitting with all four legs tucked tidily underneath.

There are a lot of calls of "burger cat" around here in the colder months of the year!

I lol'd at that French bulldog pic, Kary...that is a mouth with a bit of dog stuck on it!

And wow, so many other great shots! Pointer puppies...awwww :)

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 06:16 AM

Just as an FYI guys, Meg has always had a link to this gal's site at the right, under the "More! More! More!" link.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 06:21 AM

I am working on my husband to let us adopt a couple of more kittens....there are SO many who need us, and we are down to 4 cats, from 7.

He claims we "don't have room" but we just had one son get married and the other two kids are off to college....very weak argument on his part!

Chet's momma, you are a yoga girl? I lurv da yoga!

aaah, see, Arbed? I need to study CO more closely than I already do!

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 06:25 AM

OMG BAMBIIIIII!!! (Hey, I grew up watching this cartoon ... I'm allowed.)

Ryan - Cute faces!!! :)

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 06:43 AM

Oops! Thanks, arbed. I guess I need to take the CO remedial course with Lauri.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 06:47 AM

These are great Hallmart pictures. I would buy them.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 06:52 AM

Kliban (who drew all those cat and mousie cartoons) used the term "meatloaf" for the "burger cat" thing.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 06:55 AM

Good morning, all, and happy Saturday! (insert mental picture of Theo's Yay picture here)

We call it "loaf of bread cat". My 3 month old, 2 pound kitten stopped running around like a mad thing last night and became a tiny loaf of bread for a few minutes. So cute!

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 07:03 AM

It's awesome that there's animals that will snorgle other animals. Other people have noted this too, but I love how the fur colors match on these two!

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 07:03 AM

Thank you, Teho and Lauri and all, for keeping CO free of all but cuteness (and poetry!) and lurve.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 07:07 AM

On my gracious. Close the site right now because this can't be topped.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 07:10 AM

Warms my heart...

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 07:27 AM

that website. is completely amazing. it has a lot of photos of the deer and the rabbit. Theyre like Bambi and Thumber... BFF. That is one of my favorite websites.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 07:34 AM

Cat in "meatloaf" position = catloaf 'Nuff said.

Laurie C
 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 08:00 AM

That's so rule #4. Oh come on! You know it! I like the last one, where they've toootally just woken up from a mid-day snorglenap. So sweepies.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 08:15 AM

Does anyone else think this looks like one of the "Seasons" photograph series where each photos is a different season of the year? The top one is Summer, #2 is Winter, #3 is Autumn. All the photgrapher needs is to catch them snorgling in the flowers for her Spring photo.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 08:42 AM

I really think everything's gonna be okay. Just from looking at these pictures, I have a renewed sense of hope in the world.

No like really.

I do!

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 08:56 AM

I just cannot go on. I have seen the epitome of cuteness and may now very well be dead.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 08:59 AM

Thanks for throwing down the challenge. Once someones says this is as cute as cute is Meg digs into Her mailbox to pick something even better. Imagines CO office has secure cabinet contianing the dangerously cute images

We also call it "Loafing"!! You made me laugh out loud! I love the universal language of pets, don't you?

And these two are like Romeo and Juliet - they are from different worlds, just trying to love each other against all odds!

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 09:36 AM

I'm sorry, but in that first pic the deer is slowly eating the rabbit. Then they have an evil face-off. In the end, the rabbit eats the deer.

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 09:43 AM

that is the cutest thing i've EVER seen in my life :)

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 09:45 AM

Did I just die? So far too cute to be real. I want to be snorgled by a deer! ~~pouts~~

 |  Aug 12, 2006 at 09:47 AM

lemura, you're not too far off.

Actually these two have been close friends since birth almost, and the deer had to be euthanized, and so after it it laid down to die under the tree, and the bunny came and sat with the deer, his best buddy, in his dying moments.
