The 50 Cutest Things That Ever Happened

Since the concept of “Cute” was first dreamed up some time around the invention of cats in 30 B.C., a great many cute things have happened. But these were the very cutest of all.

1. The day this orphaned kitten pushed his stepbrother around in a tiny, kitten-sized shopping cart

And the world came, shudderingly, to a halt.

17. That time when all the cats decided to imitate all the babies and totally nailed it.

18. The photobooth proposal that totally worked.

“These are the pictures from when we got engaged. I have no idea in frames one and two and am really confused in frame three (lets never make that face again!) and really surprised in frame four.”

19. And the somber Victorian photoshoot that didn’t.

21. The serious cat who got photobombed by his idiot friend.

22. Let’s not forget Pickles the Etsy-modeling pug.

ID: 440523

23. Or the pug who pushed her toy baby pugs around in a stroller. With a parasol.

ID: 440475

And then settled down to watch a piece about herself on the local news. It goes without saying that this was a great day for big pugs, little pugs, strollers, and parasols alike. Possibly one of the greatest.

24. Or (for God’s sake) the seeing-eye pug who helps her blind pug friend get around.

The blind pug, Elly, is on the right. Her sighted pug friend Franky is always at her side to make sure she doesn’t get lost.

25. And also while we are on the “seeing-eye” topic, let’s talk just real quicklike about this seeing-eye cat who see-eyes for a labrador out of the great and glorious goodness of her heart.

26. Then there was the time we all learned what happens when you burn someone’s feelings.

The story behind this note is that the long-suffering father who received it had postponed a beach trip with his 8-year-old daughter until he could finish watching the football game.

27. And the time a possum broke into a bakery and ate so many danishes that he couldn’t leave.

28. And this bunny bathtime.

29. There was a partially paralyzed kanagaroo who became a therapy animal for an Oklahoma woman suffering from depression.

After a stroke, and a debilitating depression, and an attempted suicide, Christie Carr found new meaning volunteering at a wildlife refuge, where she met Irwin, a five-month-old kangaroo who had partially paralyzed himself after hopping into a fence.

The town of Broken Arrow unanimously voted to create an exemption to their exotic animals ordinance so that the inseparable Carr and Irwin could continue their lives together.

45. The flower girl who had a lousy day at the Royal Wedding.

ID: 441723

46. The cat who got older but didn’t grow up.

ID: 440731

47. The dog who got older but who - what I am trying to say is that the important point of this story is that HE IS BEST FRIENDS WITH A CHEETAH.

Sorry, parallel structure fail.

ID: 441397

48. The cat who always waits for her dog best friend to pick her up for their daily stroll.
