Try NOT to exclaim "OMG" out loud. Serious Cynthia H.

Oh my gosh! Otters are the cutest animals ever!

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:33 AM

Of course they are holding hands so they won't drift away from each other while they are asleep. Who would want to wake up without an otter nearby?

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:34 AM

I tried and failed! OMG!!11!! OMGOMGOMG!!1 How can you not squee when the one reaches out for the other?!?


 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:35 AM

yesh, it's the otterhand re-grab that killth me

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:37 AM

Impossibly cute, thanks for sharing :)

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:37 AM

That is the most beautiful video I have ever seen. People who say animals don't have emotional connections are haters!

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:37 AM

Oh good lord, that is the cutest thing ever. EVER!!!! EVER, I say!

Cute enough to begin with, what with the hand-holding and the sleepy eyes and the bellies and all....but then after they drift apart, when they later drift back together and the one otter literally reeeeeaaaaches out his little hand for the other otter's hand, and grasps it -- WELL, that just slays me dead!

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:39 AM

I'm so glad I was alone in the office when I watched that...

Otter bellies rule!

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:42 AM

OMG, I don't think anything could top this for cuteness and sweetness. I'm welling up in my cubicle watching it!

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:42 AM

Otter & Otteretta floating in the pond. H-O-L-D-I-N-G hands. First come love then comes marriage. Then come babies floating in the pond too. (Sorry couldn't think of a rhyme.)

What I loved the best was when they were separated they just stayed relaxed and waited, confident that the current would bring them back together.

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:42 AM

I did it--I tried to hold it in, but it just slipped out: a great big AAWWWWWW!

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:43 AM

Sooo cute. Love how early on in the vid the dark headed otter looks up as if to wonder where the kids are and if they're alright, then sees they are and keeps relaxing. And the reach out for a paw gesture = world peace potential.

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:43 AM



 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:46 AM

OMG and then the snuggly adjustment of their clasp for reaffirmation! Hallmark will have to invent flat-screen video cards just for this one.

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:47 AM


I've emailed Peter at CuteOtters.com -- I think we just scooped him again. Hee hee.

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:47 AM

aww. dem otters are in lurves!

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:49 AM

Possibly the cutest thing EVER SEEN BY HUMAN EYES.

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:51 AM

That's it. I'm on overload. Shuttin' down, goin' home.

I believe that the heart does go ooooonnnnn


 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:52 AM

Awww! I wanna be an otter and hold hands with my otter boyfriend! [cube neighbors shaking heads at redonk noises I'm making]

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:54 AM

haha.. the video was cute.. but I think the women saying "AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW", "They're holding hands", "Isn't that sweet?", "Awwwwww!" was actually quite weird. haha.. i don't think i've heard that many women making all those noises at the same time lol

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:55 AM


 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:56 AM

I am literally weeping in my cube. God works through otters!

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:56 AM

OMG! My head just exploded form the adorableness of it all!!

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:58 AM

lli -- I can't decide if I want to slap you or hand you a Grammy.
SUBLIME (and just a wee bit evil).

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 11:59 AM

Did anyone else notice that when the otterz re-clasp hands, the dark headed one "appears" to kiss the hand of the light headed one? Did I imagine this?

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:06 PM

I love this!! It's one of the best rule #6's I've seen on here.

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:10 PM

zookeeper40, i totally saw the kiss too! SO sweet!

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:11 PM

Nice catch zookeeper40! You totally did not imagine that.

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:12 PM

I also think with their paws up and clasped together like that it almost looks like their about to break into a Greek dance or a Hora or something. :)

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:14 PM

AWWWWWWW!!!! Can't...form...coherent...sentence

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:16 PM

This is one of the cutest things I have ever seen EVER!!! I love otters...the hand-holding is the killer..plus their little tiny ears...I almost screamed at my desk!

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:17 PM

have you ever had that intense pain in your stomach from wanting to scream but couldn't cause you were at work?? yeah. thanks meg. :)

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:17 PM

I totally needed a dose of cute like that this afternoon. Hooray for cuteness! :)

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:17 PM

Hehe sorry to rock the boat but I reckon they are only doing that because they want to hold onto something.. lol they don't have the same feelings as humans!

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:18 PM

I can't hear you Kat...lalala(holds hands over ears)

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:20 PM

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:22 PM

Is this Meg spiking the cute at all those nuffers who were complaining about how onions and pinecone turkeys aren't cute?

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:24 PM

Hand-holding otters! What'll they think of next. My brain has been short circuited from the overload of cute. I wonder if I can go home sick if I show my boss this.

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:25 PM

I held out my hand but there was no otter to take it. Sadness.

 |  Mar 27, 2007 at 12:26 PM

This is TRUE love !!!
