Newborn Quokka ACTION

Many thanks to UK Cuteporter Hannah B., still awake at midnight local time, for spotting this Knucklehead-Beyond-Belief Bebeh Quokka on ZooBorns. “I don’t know if you have seen this yet (we hadn’t) but it’s too Cute! Love your site, makes every day happy.”

So this little maniac is “Meeuk Mia” or just “Mia.”

6a010535647bf3970b01b7c7168724970b-800wi
Keeper Bec Russell-Cook of the Taronga Zoo (Down Undah) has been hauling Mia around in a pouch, and waking up very early for the first of five daily feedings.

Meet The Dibblers

Before I saw this on ZooBorns, I thought that perhaps “Quokka” was the funniest animal name. But that was before..

The Dibbler.

Or, in the case of this first photo, a Stack O’ Dibblers. ZB says The Dibbler is “an endangered carnivorous marsupial.”

6a010535647bf3970b01bb07c5c4da970d-800wi
The Perth Zoo bred some Dibblers and then “released them to a fenced area at Whiteman Park, giving them a chance to establish in the absence of foxes and cats, which have likely contributed to their decline in the wild.”

Thank you to all our Peeps who sent photos in during the year. (Have a photo you’d like to send in? Here’s all you need to do. One week from today- our Top Ten Cutest Videos.)

This Is My “No, I DIDN’T Like That” Look, OK?

We think we’re doing them a favor by giving them a bath, with all sorts of warm soapy water, baby talk, (Now who’s the snookums wookums? YOU are), gently toweling them off, and such.

This is a crucial error on our part. The eventual payback is looming, and either we’re gonna get it, or the curtains will.

[Yes, this has the “Impending Doom” tag. -Ed.]

Happiness IS A Warm Puppeh

Is THIS one of THE PROSHEST faces EVER? Yes. Yes, it is.

Spotted this little maniac on Arbroath. Their headline is “Groucho Barx.” I really wanted to swipe use their headline- sometimes you just can’t improve on that kinda greatness.

Rats! It’s A Teddy Bear Thing

Several years ago, two women decided to start taking photos of Little Ratsos holding Teddy Bears. As Bored Panda notes, they went viral again a few days ago.

OK, Time To Break The Interwebs

THIS JUST IN from Dual Cuteporters Tracey M. and Erin D. This female pup (#681) was found September 30th, on Coastways Beach in Northern California between the San Mateo and Santa Cruz county line. WARNING: This is SO Cute- you should be sitting down. If you fall over from The Cute and smack yer head- not our fault. OK- proceed.

UPDATED! Welcome To The Taronga Zoo, Mate!

DSCN0376“We were fortunate enough to take a behind-the-scenes tour at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia. The Cuteness of the Australian native fauna is off the charts. This Quokka jumped right in front of my husband’s camera!” -Michele G.

UPDATE!

“The ones that were awake just hopped around and seemed to be begging the keeper for carrots (the curious little guy had to hop around a few Echidna to make sure he stayed close to people.) I would have scooped him up and Snorgled him if our guide hadn’t been watching us like a hawk. He told us that he could stop our private tour if we touched a Koala, so I wasn’t going to step too far out of line, even with massive temptation. It took self-control of epic proportions.”

Voila! More Quokka!

DSCN0370

And Now…A C.O. First!!

Wanna know what this raging little maniac is? My first thought was “Quokka.” Nope. When I right clicked on the image, it said:

Pademelon.

Hey, Wikipedia! Help us out!

Pademelons are small marsupials of the genus Thylogale. They are usually found in forests. Pademelons are one of the smallest of the macropods. The name is a corruption of “Badimaliyan,” from the “Dharuk Aboriginal language” of Port Jackson (Sydney region.) Pademelons, Wallabies, and Kangaroos are very alike in body structure, and the names just refer to the three different size groups.

And THAT, my friends, clears THAT up.

Baby pademelon
Arbroath.

The Best Of C.O.

Cute Overload likes to feature Cute in all shapes, sizes (Look! A kitten!) and types. But as you know, we have our favorites. When you see ‘em….ya Squee ‘em. Without further delay, we present The Best Of C.O. They’re not in alphabetical order- they’re listed as we think of ‘em. Are we (probably) missing someone? Let us know!

Maru
Maru: The Circle. His Royal Girthness. The Alpha and Omega of Internet Cats. Mugumogu’s Meal Ticket. He’s The Man, and he knows it. This article says Maru’s videos have been viewed over 200 million times. A lot of clicks, friends. He’s been saddled with a new sidekick, Hana. Maru, we all have our crosses to bear. His whole round video history is right here. One day, we hope to show you Maru in his house with some actual dirt on the floor- but don’t wait up for that.

Fearless Leader Jay Vitazko
He passed away August of 2013, but Jay lives on in the hearts of all his friends, and on the pages of C.O.

Simon’s Cat
Simon Tofield is a very talented and cat-tormented British artist, and several years ago decided to document his wretched life cat-dominated existence with the Simon’s Cat series.

Teddy Bear
Teddy will gladly obliterate anything you put in front of him, and isn’t shy about sharing his opinion, either. He likes to hang out at Zooniversity, a wildlife education company and exotic animal rescue in Dallas. All Tedster videos live here.

Chris P. Bacon
Chris P. Bacon is a prosh lil’ porker with a lotta heart and the fastest set of wheels in town. Here are all of CPB’s YouTube clips. Partner in Crime of Lentil Bean. (See below.)

Lentil Bean
The Bean gets into the Hall for the sheer WOW Factor of this first photo alone. But then this Fall 2013 photo sesh with Chris P. Bacon sends ‘em BOTH into the stratosphere. That’s GOLD, Jerry. GOLD! Known associate of Chris P. Bacon. (Above.)

Milo

A mighty little white puffball who didn’t forget to bake us a cake! Thank-you, Milo!

Maymo & Penny
The virtual definition of the word “Goofball.” Maymo and new pal Penny haven’t met a living room they wouldn’t like to trash. Gleefully. Check out a video or two at Maymo’s YouTube library.

Magilla Glub Glub & Lady Bubbles
The Kuddlin’ Kigali Kitteh AKA Magilla Glub Glub came blasting into the C.O. Collective Consciousness in the fall of 2012 and is now joined by a companion, Lady Bubbles (R.) It is my dream to someday fly to Kigali, Rwanda and snorgle these two until I pass out. And then stuff them in my Nike bag and make like a banshee for the airport and my return flight.
