Just Too Cute to be King

Zazu budgie is all, “I think it’s time that you and I arranged a heart-to-heart.”

Simba pup is all, “Kings don’t need advice from little hornbills for a start!”

“Everybody look left. Everybody look right. Everywhere you look Ant ‘s standing in the spotlight.”

  9. Beth covered in cat hair says:

    Marshwiggle…love your little picture! Are they yours?

  10. bob drummond says:

    Yeah man! That picture is the cat’s meow !

  11. skippymom says:

    That birdie looks like my Jim, who went to the bridge 25 years ago. Damn, he was a great bird.

  12. Budgies are stinkin’ cute.

  13. skippymom says:

    Jim was great. He used to say “Pining for the fjords”, “Hurry up please, it’s time” and “Take off, eh?”

  14. Fird Birfle says:

    you had a wonderful bird who SAID pinin’ for the FJORDS?????


    RIP, Jim!!!

  15. skippymom says:

    It’s true. And he said it in that indignant, incredulous John Cleese tone of voice: “PINING for the FJORDS?!”

  16. jlamusings says:

    That is the most awesome bird talkin’ ever!! RIP Jim!

    Reminds me that my vet has a parrot in the lobby that just imitates children crying for mommy (she used to be in a preschool). It’s kinda disturbing…. much prefer comedy greats!

  17. I knew a parrot that flawlessly mimicked the wife’s voice nagging the husband. :-D

  18. skippymom says:

    Oh man, I would laugh my a** off if I could hear the parrot imitating crying children. (As someone who works with small children every day, I have earned the right to say that.)

  19. Theresa says:

    Best parrot talk ever– the one of a friend’s sister, who used to yell at the dogs, “Wanna go out? Wanna go out?” :mrgreen:

  20. You had a bird named JIM (okay, brilliant right there) that said “Pinin’ for the Fjords”?? Well, I can’t have any more pets. That’s the pinnacle.

  21. this is too cute to be true :)

  22. Now what could be so interesting as to capture the attention of a pup AND a birdie??? Hummm?????

  23. Guinea Peeg Lover says:

    A food fight?

  24. TrixandSam says:

    The cat making off with their supper dishes?

  25. Squirrel!

  26. earlybird1 says:

    (singsong voice) Someone’s been nomming the wall of their boxxx-houuuuuse!

  27. Apparently Dogs and Birds need Box hab too!

  28. Budgie sez: “Dis MAH puppeh! Yew getcher ow-en!”

  29. Galway to Graceland…

  30. Hey, that last budgie posting we had, that little guy making sweet sweet lerve to the tennis ball– now that was a hornbill. :mrgreen:

  31. tracylee says:


  32. perfect coat of fur, looks freshly steam-cleaned

  33. Seriously. This dog cannot be real. Steam-cleaned, shiny eyed. Probably even smells good and doesn’t poo in your closet.

  34. Noelegy says:

    This dog should be advertising toilet tissue!

  35. In fact, I have a Maltese who is a skosh more ecru than white. Maybe I should have him steam cleaned. Hmmmm…

  36. I need to nom those giant puppeh paws, stat.

  37. best captions ever!

  38. Thank you for putting that ear-worm in my head for this entire day! Gaah!!!

  39. Noelegy says:

    Okay, I saw the “Lion King” reference and got it, but when it came to the “Everybody look left…” part, I was trying to parse it as an Adam Ant lyric because of the “Ant” reference.

    I went to an altogether too happy place for an instant. :D

  40. Just so so so so so so cuuuuuute!
