It’s that time of year again when our minds turn to cute furry animals. Well, one cute furry animal anyway: the Easter Bunny. Understandably, he’s a bit too busy to pose for us right now, but fortunately we have a few other adorable critters lined up for you to enjoy. And, just to add that little extra dash of cuteness, they’re all in cups!
What better way to start than with this sweet little baby rabbit? Careful, though: as you can see it’s a little shy. It’s not easy going first, especially with all the attention bunnies get around this season…
Of course, there are times when one fluffy white rabbit in a cup just isn’t enough. That’s when you need two fluffy white rabbits in cups! Better be quick, though — looks like they’re ready to hop on out any second now. Maybe they have some chocolatey deliveries to make?
Cats are famously curious creatures, and this cutie is no exception. Something has taken its fancy up there… Could it be an Easter egg? If so, we suspect this little kitty would have more fun with the shiny wrapper than the chocolate!
We think this squirrel maybe got a little mixed up with its holidays. It’s probably just too busy with its nuts to give Easter much thought. Peanuts (which are actually pulses) are not really recommended food for squirrels, but just this once…
This clever hamster has made itself a comfy little hidey-hole in its cup. Perfect for enjoying a nice private snack! Before eating, however, it looks as if it’s decided to say grace. Well, it is Easter, after all.
You wouldn’t think a cup would be a particularly comfortable place for a snooze, but it seems being this adorable is pretty darn tiring! Better let this sleeping puppy lie, as its pose seems to suggest you can “talk to the paw, ’cause the face is sleeping.”
This kitty is pretty sure it’s too cool to be posing in this cheesy mug. The things a model has to do, eh? While we’re at it, though, why do humans find animals in cups so fascinating? One writer suggests it’s because it highlights their tiny size and vulnerability. Or maybe it’s just because they look so darn cute.
What’s that? No, there was no cream in this cup. It was empty when I got here. Honest! On my nose? Nope, nothing there. You must be seeing things.
This little bunny seems to be under the impression that if it keeps very still, we won’t see it. Could that be how its cousin the Easter Bunny does it? Perhaps we should tell this youngster that brown fur doesn’t quite work as camouflage in every situation…
Who says you have to be furry to be loveable? This tree frog might not be quite as snuggly as the other tiny cuties here, but those big eyes and little froggy fingers totally make up for it. Chocolate frogs are popular too, you know.
