The week in cute: Eight things that made us say Aww

Watch the video of this kitten and feel everything:

On Sunday, we met Holly, a dog who in life comforted cancer patients and in illness offered them hope. (More feelings.)

Busch Gardens reminded us that the craziness of Gasparilla isn't just for people (or for dogs), writing, "A few of the park's cheetahs celebrated the first ever 'Catsparilla,' complete with a pirate ship. Made of a plastic tub, cardboard boxes, a bamboo mast, hay and other enrichment items, the Catsparilla pirate ship included spices to entice the cheetahs to 'board the ship' and even papier mache animals for the cheetahs to pounce on."

Sometimes birds freak us out, but these guys were pretty cute, right?

On Thursday, we had a little thowback cute. Retro win!

And we previewed our future favorite Super Bowl commercial.

Finally, we watched as a baby polar bear took her first steps. Join us to watch again, won't you?

Ahhh, feeling better now.

I watched ‘The Room’ for the first time with Tommy Wiseau there. Here’s how it went

YBOR CITY — It’s 1 a.m. and I’m hunched over a pile of plastic spoons, studying a list of phrases I’m supposed to shout aloud (Liar! Unfocus! HI, DENNY!) when a man with stringy ink-black hair sweeps to the stage."Oh, hi, Tommy!" a guy in back shouts...
