More cuteness than the human mind can handle?


I can just hear everyone saying, "Sure, you CLAIM that cats will rule the world... but how can you be SURE?"


This.


Prepare yourself, take some deep breaths, and... click

Oh, I agree. But there aren't that many pics I've ever seen that have the power of reducing the viewer to incoherency like that one.

(example)

ITTY BITTY KITTY HEADS... EENTSY TEENSTY TAILS... INFINITESIMAL EARS... I CAN'T EVEN...TOO MUCH CONCENTRATED CUTENESS... SYSTEMS OVERLOAD. (incoherent squeaking)

And then, when you least expect it, they move in. Hand over the catnip, and nobody gets hurt.

No fucking joke! I can't believe how many years I suffered from Cute Cat Picture Deprivation (CCPD) and didn't even know it. Now when I feel the symptoms coming on, I can get relief immediately.

And its FASCINATING to me that it is cats - not dogs. There are cute puppy pictures out there, but they are the red headed step child of the internet when compared to kittens.

I was kind of thinking that too, about the deficiency of dog photos... but I have got to admit, puppies just do not do it for me in the way that kittens do.

Cute Overload has a lot of puppies-- a few too many, I sometimes think-- but it's a great place to find more unusual cute animals. The top 2 posts are otters right now.


And I want to know more about the Institute for Advanced Ice Cream Studies.

I wonder if those cougar cubs are still at the Portland zoo... I really should go there at some point.

Anyway, there was a Cutest Kitty Moment Ever (tm) a little while ago when Amethyst fell asleep on the keyboard. No photos were taken, unfortunately. BUT... just to convey the mood, here's a piece my grandma used to play...

Kitten on the Keys.

Who has lots of time to sit at home sobbing into their ice cream bucket and uploading pictures of their house bound cat? Cat owners.

Who doesn't have time to upload pics of their dog because they're out playing team frisbee with all their other dog owner friends while also toning their six pack abs? Dog owners.

So... how exactly does this explain all of the dog owners who DON'T have six pack abs? And who walk around with their shirts off-- OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PUT THAT BACK ON.

Here's the secret...

SPOILER:


Cat owners (aka "co-conspirators") AND our cats are devising a secret plan to take over the world. Masons, the Illuminati, and Jack Chick are all involved. Dogs will be used to deliver ice cream when it's all over.

There was one set of cat pix I've never forgotten, but I've never been able to find it again, so you'll all just have to picture this:

Lots of kittens in eentsy teentsy cat-size four-poster beds.

A dual video of a mama dog teaching her pup and a mama cat teaching her kitten how to go down the stairs. They have different methods.

Gee, thanks. Now I'll waste the rest of my evening watching all the other "True Facts..." videos, because they are so frikkin hilarious. Not all about critters, though; did you watch the one about Morgan Freeman?

Oh, great. I went Googling for that and came across this.

And this.

And this.

Not to mention this.

Anyway, I've never been able to find that original pic again, and I've looked. Maybe I should start a new topic in General Questions just for that purpose.

It was... very odd.

So there's this cute-photo setup that I've been trying to capture for a couple of days now, and I THINK I'll have it tomorrow. A kitten takes over the keyboard. I'll have photo captions and everything.
