It was the word “Explosion” that pushed this one over the top, BTW. Congrats, Tina!

Waynesboro is our destination for this week’s Thursday edition of ResQte of the Week! “This is a video of a young Beaver nomming on a small branch,” says Mieke Z. “It was filmed by a great organization: the Wildlife Center of Virginia, where he – along with numerous other birds and beasts – is being rehabilitated. (Note: The center also offers classes for wildlife rehab-ber trainees!)”
[*Note: Speakers UP for the nomming. -Ed.]
“Hi Cuteoverload! This is a picture of Maxine’s cute bum. She lives at Heartland Farm Sanctuary in Madison, WI. Photo taken by Jennifer R. Maxine knows how to move it!” -Ann W.
Ah, it’s a fall tradition at C.O. Trying to discover what Mister Donut is offering up in The Big J. Seriously, I was asking Andrew (“oooo, I forgot to look in YouTube”) Y. about this like in August probably. Anyway. In poking around the InterTubes and through their Twitter and Facebook accounts, this is what I was able to come up with. Looks like they’re staying with the Hello Kitteh theme, which is fine with us.
And this last one- well, it’s 2 years old but has the total authentic Big J vibe to it. You’ll see what I mean.

And we want you to write it! Here’s the scoop. This post is from earlier today, and in it, Marianne H. mentions “There are some Rules in there..Toe Beans, Toe Floof, Paws Up, Side Eyes.. And General Major Fluffiness.”
The problem? There IS no Rule for Toe Floof! (Or Ear Floof, Whisker Floor, all the Floofs. I mean, I looked! Twice!)
So we want YOU to Write The Rule! It has to be short and to the point and in the general Rule format. It’s gonna be #59, and will have YOUR name on it, too. So get to work! We’ll unveil the New (Your Name Here) Rule at 1pm PT today, and you’ll get your own personalized Rule Certificate, just like the one at left!
This is JumJum, the Birma Ragdoll! Marianne H. sent these photos in, and she’s going to tell us all about ’em.
“I just have to share with you the Overload in Cuteness that is JumJum the Birma-Ragdoll. I have the immense perk of getting to cat-sit while his mom and little moms are away. His little moms are called Stella and Sofia (5 and 3) and they’re in Greece now with big mom Josefine helping with the refugee crisis there. Jummy misses them all.”
“JumJum likes licking your eyelid in the morning, doing mad dashes through the apartment, mewing, throwing his toys really high and napping.”
“He lives in Stockholm, Sweden and supports the football (soccer) team AIK.”
“I attach a few pics from our fun together, and I would argue there are some Rules in there..Toe Beans, Toe Floof, Paws Up, Side Eyes.. And General Major Fluffiness! AND watching of Tip and the Dreamworks kittens on the iPad! So you are the supreme judges of course….but isn’t he just Cute Overload?”
Remember Blinky McBlinkersons from the summer of 2013? We
just saw this video today and decided to relate it to an older one dug deep thru the C.O. archives and came across a home movie from Blinky’s childhood. We think that’s him on the right. Look at ’em gettin’ their splash on and stuff!
“Oh, yah, retirement’s been good to Larry’n me so far, no complaints. We just got back from visiting my sister in Arizona — oh, it’s so hot down there, don’cha know, don’t know how they stand it. Anyways, we’re gunna swing east before we head home, ’cause Larry wants to visit the World’s Largest Hydrant out’n Oklahoma.”
