Regularly there is stuff on the internet that makes my heart beat faster, or my knees go weak. But mostly it's making me smile.

Like this Out of Sight. Watch it and you'll go 'Oooooooow CUTE!' on me :)

Just give it a try!

That's really cute. The animation is gorgeous and I love the concept. :)

Well, these aren't cute, but they are special to me. They show my parents' boat when she was a lifeboat in the 1960s. :) I was very pleased to find them. (There are a couple of other videos posted by the same chap - entitled "Americans Discover St Davids" or something similar, which also feature my parents' boat. :))

That is a very nice animation and story.
I was interested to notice that the store sign is in English, whereas the credits are in Chinese(?). The animators assume all can read English(?).

Heliona, it must be a very special feeling to see your parents' boat like this. I would be really proud! Thanks for sharing this unique material.

I was surprised to see the Chinese or Japanese characters too Portia. Perhaps they wanted to make their animation as international as possible?

Happy to help you get a good start Rwhen :hug: My work day just ended.

I've already sent your adorable dog link around to some FB friends, drieske.

Did you catch the purring at the end? It took me a couple of times to catch it.

My own cat always purrs like he's hyperventilating, making lots of noise :lol:

Hmmmm.... my dog is part Jack Russell. If wonder if I could train her to do some of those things. It would save me a lot of time, especially if I could train her to pick up the living room while my older daughter was napping and at night after she's gone to bed. Of course finding the time to do the training would be interesting.... :P

And I love the secret kitten! :D Especially loved the way it was laying in the pile.

It really was a cute story. And those kittens are adorable! My dog had puppies many years ago, and they slept one on top of another like that (we took a lot of pictures of them sleeping :lol: )

Alas the weekend already is over. But guess what: a new one is beckoning at the end of the week! :D And one work day down.

Friday night was very relaxing Rwhen: a glass of wine, long talks, snuggling up on the couch. And the same happened yesterday evening *happy sigh*

Tarina, keep us informed on the progress your dog is making! I'll try it out on my cat ;)

Do you still have a picture of the pups Alassë? We'd love to see them :)

Here's more cuteness, now 'live' photo's of the animal companions I had this weekend:

kitties #1

kitties #2

kitties #3

kitties #4

They had to stop me from smuggling them out of the house... :love:

No, they're Gonadan and Mir's! They were so very funny, enthusiastic, clumsy, adorable, sweetness impersonated. My Bandit is a giant compared to them!

Have you found the pictures Alassë? I'd love to see them :D

In the meantime, have a look at this:

Crows vs Cat vs Cat Street Fight

A warning: it is cute and not cute at the same time. Those crows are really something else! :horse:

Oh my goodness. That poor white and tabby cat!

We had a similar, much less dramatic, situation outside our house about a week ago. A black and white cat was attempting to stalk a couple of crows that were pecking at something on the tarmac driveway. Needless to say, the cat didn't get remotely close! The crows would sidestep near to the cat, and then dance away. :D

Yes, the poor white & tabby was attacked from both sides! The crows must have been hexed to cooperate with the black witch cat :shock: Very cheeky and brave birds hehehe.

Alassë, you could send them to me so I can host them on my site and then paste them here in this thread. Is that an idea?

And the song IS catching =:)

Hi Rwhen, come here sweetie :hug:. The thing is, the cat could have simply gone somewhere else. Those cat fights look awful eh?

Hey little kitty :whistle:
