    Surely we can't have a "cute animals" thread without pygmy jerboas:

    One for the cat lovers. The whole series of them are funny too.

    So it is with great glee, I share, via @saslockey on Twitter, Basset Hounds Running.

    None of those dogs appear to be wearing a Sherlock Holmes hat and smoking a pipe. I therefore do not believe that they're actually Basset Hounds.

    Friend of mine has a polydactyl cat.

    We’ve got a polydactyl maine coon. He’s a big cat: 7.5kg, very long legs, and his paws are twice the size of most cats' paws. When he doesn’t want to be picked up he anchors into the carpet and is very difficult to shift. Pics here.

    He's very handsome, what an awesome-looking cat!

  • Bart Janssen,

    Our cat Figaro used to love charging into brown paper shopping bags, if we left them on the floor. Unlike Maru he would then charge around at full speed, propelling himself with his back legs, until of course he found a wall. Oddly hitting a wall head first at full speed didn't seem to deter him from doing it again and again.

    Losers. Go ahead, cuddle your kittens. Over here, we're busy doing battle against one of the true enemies of Man.

    Errr, make that men.

    Ponies - they're pretty much horses right?
    In which case, here's an entire collection of videos with Horses in them!

  • sallyr,

    Sigh. Corgis need better pr; they suffer from association with their most famous owners. The corgi I had was a scholar and a gentleman, and like these fellows always cheerfully undeterred by poor odds.

    Dude, with this kind of thing

    These guys aren't cool, or probably even clever...

    you risk getting your heels nipped. By a smiling ninja corgi.

    Odin = new bar in feline awesomeness. How is he on the bags/boxes?

    I was cynical, I must admit. "Otters holding hands?" I thought. "Must be an anthropomorphic thing, like when dogs look like they're kissing each other, where actually they are establishing nonthreateningness". But no, they drift apart, they drift together, and then "she" (is it a she? I like to think so) clutches the other's hand. No anthropomorphism there. They're genuinely holding hands. Yes, I cried at that bit.

    This reminds me of some performance art I saw a few weeks ago. Outstanding.

  • webweaver,

    Following on from old-school YouTube cute videos, in addition to "otters holding hands" my all-time fave has to be "the sneezing baby panda" - tell me it doesn't make you laugh and I won't believe you...

    ...and put me down as another one who cried today when I re-watched the otters - the bit where they come back together again set me off too. And the baby corgi one made me cry as well for some reason.

    I've been resolutely not watching any news at all since last Friday - I can't handle it at the moment, it makes me too anxious - and I've been tip-toeing around Public Address for a week trying to only read posts that don't freak me out - so thank you Russell for a thread that I can be pretty sure will be safe for me to read. :)
