Way to go, Grabbui P.! You did it!



Ruhmember so-called "Rule 16"? Well, it was INTENDED to be the rule that ‘Possums aren’t cute"?

Well, the first image below proved otherwise. Possums can actually be cute. Little did we know that image would be the inspiration for a hilarious lil’ wood carving by Todd Bouck, wood carver extraordinaire!



Jack’s on duty

Excerpted from Yahoo:

WEST MILFORD, N.J. – A black bear picked the wrong yard for a jaunt,running into a territorial tabby who ran the furry beast up atree—twice.

Jack, a 15-pound orange and white cat, keeps a close vigil on hisproperty, often chasing small animals, but his owners and neighbors sayhis latest escapade was surprising.

Jack1_2 "We used to joke, ‘Jack’s on duty,’ never knowing he’d go after a bear," owner Donna Dickey told The Star-Ledger of Newark for Friday’s editions.

Neighbor Suzanne Giovanetti first spotted Jack’s accomplishment after her husband saw a bear climb a tree on the edge of their northern New Jersey property on Sunday. Giovanetti thought Jack was simply looking up at the bear, but soon realized the much larger animal was afraid of the hissing cat.

After about 15 minutes, the bear descended and tried to run away, but Jack chased it up another tree
Dickey, who feared for her cat, then called Jack home and the bear scurried back to the woods. "He doesn’t want anybody in his yard," Dickey said.


I’ll say!

Thanks for sending in, Amy F.!

He’s all "I was wondering if you would like to join me in my quarters this night… for some toast."

Hang on tight, Bunny lovers

It has come to our* attention that several good peeps on from Flickr’s Bunny Lovers Unite pool have lost their buns over the weekend.

It’s always hard to lose a pet—especially a precious, soft, snorgly bun. Even when that bun shows her "miniature disapproval", she’s still a sweetheart.

Here’s to you and your wonderful pets, let’s hope they’re all snuggling in that great rabbit warren in the sky…


Tobias F., thanks for the bunneries.
