Royal Tipton Raises the Cute Bar

This happens every now and again.

We think we've seen the cutest thing ever, then the cute bar gets raised by an adorable IBKC kitten doing something horribly, horribly adorable.

Yesterday, Royal raised the bar.

  4. It's adorbs enough, but his brother yesterday raised the Cute Bar even more, in my opinion! Now we need the two of them together for Cute Overload.

  12. I can't wait to see these floof balls learn to groom from the Bean! Now that will raise the cute bar even more!

  13. That is pretty gosh darn cute. My 7 year old Newton does it all the time to me...then he starts to twist himself inside out...it's his way of talking cuz he rarely meows.

  14. :O

    Royal! Don't you know that's the Human Slayer pose?!

    Something tells me a certain little kitten is getting over his shyness...

  15. Welcome to the Power of The Maine Coon Belly. Resistance is futile. Trust me, as he grows that belly floof will cause you to snorgle it every stinking time. I am on year 8 of this Kitten trap and loving every minute!

  17. Too bad the comments don't have formatting, because :D needs to be much much bigger.

    No, there is nothing cuter than an upside-down kitten with little paws outstretched.

  20. I'm so in love with these boys because they look just like my girl when she was a baby, and I regret that I took so few pictures of her. I am sorry I keep talking about my kitty! but seriously, she could be their lost sister. And yes, Royal is cuter than a whole jar full of buttons. He is the floofiest floof who ever floofed.

    1. Awww, you may talk about your kitty, she is of course precious! It would be a tiny bit sad to come here if we didn't then have our own kitties to think of and hug and fuss over.

  21. I'm more impressed with his revealing his belly to you. That shows real confidence!

    Good job, Laurie!!

  22. This may displace my current winner of "Darin's favorite pictures", http://www.theittybittykittycommittee.com/2009/06/it-truly-is-miracle-i-get-anything-done.html
    It's a strong contest. Royal's guileless look versus teeny tiny. I will have to ponder this weekend to determine the winner. Or they'll both win!

  23. Royal is all like: "Lady, I'm giving you my best cute poses here! Why do you keep pointing that black device at me instead of rubbing my belleh?" ;)

  24. The Maine Coon-ey feets are killing me!! I wonder if these boys will be talkers, like my M.C., Bella? She has something to say about EVERYTHING!

  25. No I have never seen anything like this - I think your camera has some kind of cute filter on it. I'm mean - c'mon....are these kittens specifically engineered to be ridiculously kitten cute? It's killing me. Thanks for being a good work break as always.
