I'm not the kind of person who goes home to a house full of cats, decorated with funny cat posters from the 70's (Hang in there, kitty!), full of dusty cat knick-knacks and stuffed animals. Honestly. But I'm obsessed with, and I am not alone. Jason Schwartzman, of Rushmore fame, recently admitted the same to Nylon Magazine. Nah nah nah nah boo boo. But I often have to justify - to friends, to family, to colleagues, to myself - my love for this site. Yes, it is full of pictures of adorable animals in adorable situations. Yes, the site's owner, Meg, has delineated the Rules of Cuteness, which include showing off your paw pads and having a teeny tail. Yes, when a photo of an animal conquers multiple Rules of Cuteness, it has attained the Coveted Cuteness Trifecta. And, yes, there have been multiple recent postings of dogs in Halloween costumes. But the captions, people! Read the captions!
