Please stand by

People, we apologize for the delay in getting you your cute fix over the last 36 hours. [Tapping arm repeatedly] We had some hamsters clog the design template and chew through various HTML tags, resulting in white-as-snow blank screens. Of death!

And we’re baaaaaaaaaack.

  5. BStrange says:

  25. gooeyctr says:

  26. Rachael says:

    Stormy Dragon #18 FTW!!!!

    Welcome back, CO. You were missed. I mean, you were really missed. Really, really, really missed. Well, you get the picture. 😀

  27. Love you and you do for us!!!

  28. Miss Tara says:

    Since CO is my homepage, I was *really* worried. First that there was something wrong with my browser — or The Interwebs — and even FIRSTER, that I would have to live in a world without CO!
    What a relief!
    Bad hamsters! BAD! No treats!

  29. bookmonstercats says:

    Phew! I wasn’t sure if my browser was getting too old to load Teh Qte, or I was.

  30. Matahari says:

    So happy your back! Huwweh! At least something works on this computer.

  31. Lerrinus says:

    Whew! Glad you’re back, really needed a cute fix – pups really did it for me! 🙂
    *hugs to da Cute Crew*

  32. flutterbye says:

    I just now, much to my relief, checked if CO was back online. YAAAAYYYY!! Happily barfing rainbows and squirting brightly colored tears of joy!

  33. Queen of Dork says:

    *hands flutterbye a bucket and some tissues*

  34. flutterbye says:

    *Takes bucket and tissues* will hug Q of D when I quit barfing and squirting these amazingly happy colors.

    How ‘orrid to think CO might have left us like that, but when they stopped taking comments on a couple of the previous posts, I got askeered!

  35. Queen of Dork says:

    flutterbye: I totally understand. I just projectile vomited multi-colored glitter confetti. *picks confetti from between teeth.*

  36. Glad CO is back. But gosh…will I ever be able to look at a panda again and not wonder if it is a chow?

  37. BStrange says:

    Yep! If it’s eating bamboo, it’s a panda!


    Then again, I’ve had some dogs who chomped anything anyone/-thing around them was eating, just in case it actually was yummy.

    So maybe not. 😮

  38. Been sitting in a corner, rocking and humming,and sucking my thumb. I defaulted to four years old when I thought you were gone forever!

    Welcome back. Naughty hamsters, don’t do that again!

  39. marthava says:

    Well, how often did this happen when Theo was around… Just sayin’…

  40. Thank gooseness! I was worried and beginning to get cute-withdrawal shakes…

  41. Po…… there your are!!

  42. DillPig says:

    I was (really, unpleasantly) sick and didn’t visit for a few days, so mercifully didn’t realize you were off the interwebs, thus saving me from a deep depression and Qte withdrawal.

    Panda bottom: Squee!

  43. Neopatra says:

    ‘TOCKnical difficulties!

  44. That is so cute. Is he stuck there, swining back and forth?
