Up In The Sky! It’s A Bird..It’s A Plane..It’s..OMGPANDAS!!!!1!1!

GP logoThe Toronto Zoo is prepping for the arrival of two big ol’ ROLY POLYS, AKA five-year old giant pandas Er Shun and Da Mao. These two McBlorpsters are gonna fly the friendly skies on the FedEx Panda Express from Chengdu, China to a new home in the Great White North, arriving in late March/early April. They’ll stay in Toronto until 2018, when they’ll move to the Calgary Zoo. Have a safe trip, y’all!

Dateline: Kigali, Rwanda- Magilla Glub Glub, Vol. IV

The Kuddlin’ Kigali Kitteh AKA Magilla Glub Glub is back! Hoomin Nathan G. explains: “He’s older and bigger, but still cute enough to melt my wife’s heart every morning when she wakes up and he’s asleep on her feet. He likes to make a fort out of the couch cushions and play hide and seek. He also LOVES scratching at the banana leaves the couch is made out of, much to my wife’s chagrin.

PS – We got our CO calendar. Thanks! My wife loves the daily pictures and we give the old ones to a neighbor girl who is always thrilled. We recently got a cat carrier so we can fly with him, but I’m pretty sure my wife won’t let me ship him to you.” [WHAT?? A calendar for the kitteh. Fair deal, right? Outrageous. -B]

Equal Time For Sledding Possums

Why? Because Ratatouille the sledding possum also has a cute sweateuw and cute music and he is all, “Yo, Fabulous Pug Models, check me out. Whee. I’m gonna get your pom poms.” Also because, this vid is now a CO tradition:

You’ve Never Felt So Happy at Such Grand Disappointment

Buzzy sends in the best thing I’ve seen this year by Ze Frank displayed on Laughing Squid.

Another Way In Which Cats Rule

They are aloof; they are intelligent; in recent days we’ve learned how some of them are clearly superior.

Now we have incontrovertible evidence that they can do command based tricks.

Elizabeth O. sent this one in. “You featured this little guy a while back, so I started following him on FB. This is a recent video—the best part is around 1:50.”

[She’s right. What a little hoser, eh? -Ed]

Here’s the website of where Navster lives.

The Heroic Adventures of Baxter!

In last week’s episode, Baxter’s young ward Stuffy the Wonder Pup was kidnapped by shadowy operatives of the Little League of Evil. Racing to the rescue, Baxter arrives just as the fiends heave Stuffy over a cliff, due to a mishearing of the phrase “throw out the first pitch.” Will Baxter be in time to foil their underhanded plans?
