Flashback Friday: Make Dinner, Not War

[‘SCUSE me, sir- um, before you blast whoever you’re gonna blast- it’s 17:00- how about my chow?]

ResQte Of The Week 2: “Long Time Reader, First Time, Uh, Submissioner?”

IMG_0374From The C.O. Mailbag: “Dear Cute Overload, your site is a major reason why I now own two cats, so it only seems fair that I share photos of what you have wrought,” Earnest C. tells us.


“The little gray one is a two-year-old, adopted from the Oregon Humane Society. His name is Nex. The big guy is named Felix. He’s a seven-year-old Manx, rescued from a less than stable home. I was worried that two cats of different sizes and totally different age demographics wouldn’t get along, but as you can see from the photos, they’ve adopted one another as kitty bros.”

“Sure, having these two around has wrecked my blinds beyond all recognition, and I’m singlehandedly propping up the entire adhesive lint roller industry, but it’s not like I can ever be angry at them. They’re just too adorable, and even worse, they’re keenly aware of this fact.”

“Anyway, thanks convincing me to adopt. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve made in decades, both for the cats and for myself.”


Fail: It’s What’s For Dinner

Apparently, what this new-fangled fancy-pants food dispenser really needs to dispense is some wisdom.

ResQte Of The Week: Purritos To GO, Please

17670918156_837b475c06_bThe Best Friends Animal Society in Salt Lake City (also an L.A. location) has taken in 500+ kittens in the last two months, and they need homes!

“Sometimes you have to go Cute to raise awareness about an important issue. We’re thrilled the campaign is getting so much attention and hope that we’re inspiring people to take action,” said Eric Rayvid of BFAS in an email to Cute Overload.

“If you’re looking for a new pet, we urge you to adopt.”

“If you can’t take a new pet into your home, volunteer at your local humane society.”

“If you don’t have the time, donations are always needed to take care of homeless pets in your area.”

It is, indeed. (Planning an In-And-Out trip right now.) This fact did not escape Pug Puppeh Mia. Go, Mia, go!!

The Fiend Beneath the Floor!

‘Twas later that evening that I heard the noises; a faint scratching, like of some small harmless insect seeking shelter, naught more. But then it grew, louder and more insistent, joined by a hideous rasp like nothing of this earth.


“Demon! Torment me no longer!” I cried, clutching the amulet that Professor Witherspoon had entrusted to me. But the scratching grew ever louder, and the rasping voice, at first formless and incoherent, began to coalesce into human speech: “Feeeeeeed meeeeeee…”
