It seems like every week we have a new favorite Internet fad, but we prefer to think of ourselves more as "up to date on the latest trends" than "flaky." Whatever you want to call us, you have to call this week's obsession cuuuuute.
One of the hashtags recently highlighted by INK361 (a desktop web interface for Instagram) is #weeklyfluff, and, oh, was that ever a good call. What qualifies as #weeklyfluff, you ask? You name something cute and furry, and we say it's a perfect fit.
And we're not the only ones crushing on this stream of cuteness. A quick search of the hashtag reveals over 125,000 photos! Will you be adding any of your favorite puppy pics or feline photos to the stream? Let us know in the comments!
Easy there, little guy. Milk is for drinking, not for bathing!
What you see here, folks, is an epic battle that's sure to go down in history. Just remember, you saw it here first.
On the right, of course, we have the always adorable Tardar Sauce, better known as Grumpy Cat. She apparently flew first class to SXSW, according to Cele|bitchy, and has gained legions of new fans, including The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder, who posted his picture with Tard to Instagram with the caption, "Me and my new love..."
But let's be real. As lovey dovey as the two appear to be, you know they were both vying to be the cutest face in Austin. Which one would get your vote? We have to admit, it's a tough call to make!
We know this sounds weird, but you're going to have to trust us, because we think it has real potential. How can you go wrong with a genius combination of kittens, holiday candles and The Sound of Music?
Exactly. You can't. (Disclaimer: We haven't technically smelled this candle yet. Yet.)
The "Whiskers on Kittens" candle is part of Yankee Candle's My Favorite Things collection, inspired by the beloved Sound of Music tune. This fragrance puts a creative twist on its feline inspiration; the company describes it as "a sweet scent with a gentle nuzzle of sandalwood and vanilla musk." So maybe not exactly the smell of kittens, but still delightful sounding in its own way.
The two other candles in this year's My Favorite Things series are the spicy "Brown Paper Packages" and the wam and comforting "Schnitzel With Noodles." Which leaves us wondering: What exactly do those candles actually smell like?
"I just love when a random man tells me how pretty I'd look if I would just smile when I'm walking down the street, minding my own business," said no woman, ever. And, apparently, felines are in touch with their feminine side — or at least our newest favorite Tumblr, Cats Against Catcalling, sure makes it seem that way.
The Tumblr features fun snapshots of kitties (you know, just like 80 percent of sites on the Internet) captioned with catty (get it???) responses to catcalls like the one mentioned above. The best part? The pictures might be of cats, but we can totally picture some of our girlfriends saying the same things ... with pretty much the same looks on their faces. Snarkiness: The universal language.
We could literally spend all day on cat-bounce.com. The name of the site pretty much sums it up — you drag and drop kitties onto a virtual trampoline and they jump around your screen. It's ridiculously mesmerizing.
Press the "Make it rain!" button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Believe us, it will make your day.
We just love some interspecies cuddles! A puppy named Buttons and a kitten named Kitty have struck up a very special bond, according to today.com.
Kitty was rescued and brought to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Berkshire, England, where Buttons, a Jack Russell Terrier was born. Sadly, Buttons was the runt of the litter and rejected by her mother. Lucky for Buttons, Kitty was an eager playmate, and the two are so close that they think they are sisters!
Here at Crittr, we fancy ourselves professional curators of cute — especially when it comes to animal cams. Shiba Inu puppy cam? Been there. Service dog live cam? Done that. A whole gallery of the best animal cams on the entire Internet? You see where we're going with this.
