Rule of Cuteness #29 AND 30!

OK, People, this is UN-PEE-RESS-A-DENTED!

Not one but TWO rules of Cuteness at ONCE! [hyperventilating]

I might have to sit down.

RULE #29: If you flex your paws repeatedly in a kneading motion in the air for no reason, IT'S CUTE!

RULE #30: If your breath shows in the form of your stomach moving in a quick, fluttering fashion, IT'S SO CUTE!

This day will live in INFAMAY, Jen S.!

» Endplates Rock from The Days of Dark Soup
My parents always used to stack their plates with endplates on the top and bottom of the stack. That way the stack knew that it was indeed an official stack, and not just a random collection of plates that may or may not have been intentionally placed... [Read More]

I've long contended that baby Tigers are the epitome of cuteness. Not only are the adorable on their own, I think it's intensified by the fact they are going to grow up into killing machines.

I WANT EET! Dudes, check out the sleepy almost mauling of the Winnie teh Pooh! Well, the wiping of open mouth on said Winnie's armlet. And the squawking meow-roar! Gaaaaaa...

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:40 AM

That is one awww-dorable and ti-ti tiger.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:41 AM

Oh no! I just peed on myself! That was too, too cute. I swear the little guy was waving at me. Also, I love how he gets all yawny and snuggletastic next to his Winnie the Pooh bear.

For the love of jauntiness

I declare this cuuuute tiger cub as being "lumpy": the state of any animal that is in such a state of sleepy, that its body conforms to the shape of whatever is supporting it. I love lumpy lumps.

OMG the ear squish against the soft blankie at the end!!!

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:44 AM

And those blue eyes when they're little. Killer.

I thought I could handle it until I saw those widdle paws in the air.
But the snuggling with the stuffed Pooh just killed me.
My head asploded.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:44 AM

The most adorableish EVAH!! 'Specially the 'air muffins'. I wanna baby tiger keeettie. Well, until it gets to about 50 lbs.... then it might destroy the furniture...AND ME!

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:45 AM

Wow, that's one BIG orange tabby kitten.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:45 AM

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:48 AM

If that just isn't the cutest thing I've ever seen!

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:48 AM

I've watched this over and over...the CUTE and AWWWW factor are too overwhelming for ME! What a GREAT Thursday...thanks Meg!

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:52 AM

Maybe the sloooooow nod off into sleep (whether or not it's immediately followed by a sudden "Baroo?" awakening, followed by another sloooooooow nod) needs to be its own ROC.

Just a suggestion.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:52 AM

OMG! *watches 5 more times* That is soo cute! I wish I could pet the tiger. Would that make it a tigger *i am kidding*? Maybe not. But it still is cute.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:52 AM

I am a huge fan of the gravitational sleepyhead plop.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:54 AM

OMG! Tiger biscuits.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:56 AM


 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 11:56 AM

I love it when animals have their own stuffed animals. I'm on the lookout for some for my cats.

Ok...tigers are my all time FAV animal, and baby tigers are so adorably cute it actually causes me pain!

Did anyone see that documentary on the tiger cubs who were born in that Tiger Sanctuary in New Zealand? It was on a few years ago, the keepers would walk the cubs around the park and there was this one segment where the guy and his baby tiger went past the gift shop and the little darling got spooked by the stuffed toys, so his human took him inside.


 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:00 PM

OMG! Kitty waved at us! That's so damned cute I do believe I may have to blog this one myself (with the requisite link back to CO).

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:00 PM

So cute! I want to sqeeeeeeeeeeeze him!

musicchick2: do you know where mom's at?

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:02 PM

Meg, you will never have to worry about CO having too big of an audience.

Because you're KEEEELINGK us off with the postings!

The first person who figures out how to make a domestic kitty with perfect tiger colors will be rich beyond imagination.

(Mr. LT wishes to add an "awww" about this, plus a "Baroo?" about yesterday's scuba cat and shopping penguin.) (Not that he put it like that, of course)

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:02 PM

Sweet little wild baby...

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:04 PM

I think there should be a rule for resting your cute chin on objects to hold your head up.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:07 PM

LOOOVVVE it! Big cats are my fave....love 'em!

my favorite part is his little grunts in the very beginning, as if he is saying, "i do NOT approve. oh, nevermind. now i'm just tired."

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:12 PM

I think any baby animal trying not to fall asleep is automatically cute too. Remember sleepy puppy?


 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:22 PM

My cat was a little alarmed when he saw this. I don't think he's grasp the "thing don't come out of the computer" concept.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:25 PM

I have actually petted a baby tiger. They're not soft, more wiry. But WHO CARES? They're *cute*.

And I'm in agreement that you have a greater sense of the fleetingness of cute with a tiger.

da paws! da paws! and then the ker-plunking head. too tired from being so chucking cute.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:34 PM

I just love how he falls asleep mid head lollage.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:35 PM


Trying not giggle here at work... I got a submission!! :-)


And yes, baby kitties of all sizes are teh major cute.

my epitome of cutenesss is seeing an apex predator, be it a tiger, lion, bear, wolf... all infantile and baby-baby and unable to kill so much as a flea... THAT"S cuteness! the fact that this lil' cub will one day weigh around 600 pounds and eat 25 pounds of raw turkey a day seems sooo far off... so fer now, let's enjoy this little tiger's moment...

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:40 PM


That's unbearable. So unbearable, i had to watch three times.

If you go to Zoos.org, you can see that that baby is an endangered Sumatran tiger so is being "hand raising due to poor maternal care" ...bad mommy!

Although, i would say the mom wasn't doing her job too if it meant i got to hand raise a baby tiger!!!!!! (not really)( really)

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:40 PM

Tigger found his pooh.

COmpletely and totally overloaded. Big cat babes get me every time.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:46 PM

tiny tiger pup yawn! shut the eff up!

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:47 PM

to DunForGood--

it isnt the moms fault. they arent made to be in zoos, so they stress out and dont care for their babies. shes not bad, she just isnt made to be in a zoo.

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:51 PM

Okay, seriously, I had to check. How come "if you're sleepy, you're cute" isn't a rule??!! There have been numerous posts with itty bitty sleepies...What's a cutie got to do to get a new rule??

kma in ky
 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:54 PM

plus, there's the blinkily nodding off! this one wows the cute-o-meter, for sure!!

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 12:57 PM

Sweepy widde tigew!!!!!!!!

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 01:00 PM

I love their big noses. WOoeet!!

 |  Jan 18, 2007 at 01:02 PM

I read someplace that tigers don't justh ave stripey fur...their skin is stripey too! I wonder if that's true...

I've gotten the chance to touch baby tigers too, adn they are kind of wiry feeling, but that doesn't matter. They're so darn cute that I'd cuddle them even if they felt like sandpaper!
