Cute boys with things

Do you like cute animals and boys? Here you go, then. Cute boys with cats; Cute boys with dogs. I do enjoy the odd wander through this kind of single-serving Tumblr site. Other good ones include Fck Yeah Chubby Girls (maybe not always SFW) and Fck Yeah Butch Lesbians.
Thanks to DNA Dude for the tip.

I love me a good fashion blog and I’m pretty stoked I just found this one: Fit for a Femme is a great blog documenting the fashion choices of a very attractive couple from San Francisco. Actually, I’m having a bit of a hard time deciding which one of them I’d rather dress like.
