Is it hot in here, or is it just Theodore aka “Teddy”, Oliver who is not a stuffed toy, and Boston Baked Burrito? Thanks to sender-inners Jennifer and Liana R., Rochelle S. & “J.”, and Clare T.! Remember peeps, if it’s too cold out for you then it’s probably too cold out for your pets.

 

Who is Being Amused Here Really?

At first, you think I am amusing to you.

As if I were mere entertainment!

8392407355_3ac1f47d0c_b
But also you are amusing to me.

Whether you laugh with me or at me, I still made you laugh.

This amuses me as much as a very amusing thing.

Kelly G. writes, “This is my adorable Sharpei, Roscoe, sleeping with my cat, Little Brittle (formerly known as Itty Bitty). This is proof that cats and dogs can live together in harmony. By the way, I rescued Brittle after my brother found her meowing outside of his bedroom window last winter. She was abandoned by her mother and had to be bottle fed until she was big enough to eat on her own. Now she’s part of my furry family and BFF’s with the best dog friend a cat could ask for.”

Claudia writes: I’m a big fan of your site for a long, long time, and I finally decided to try to achieve fame for my baby big boy Garfield. We got him 5 months ago. We had just lost our 13 year old beautiful girl cat Nikita to cancer, and less than a week later someone abandoned a litter of 3 baby marmies close to where I lived. We were able to adopt one and help find a home for the other 2. He was so malnourished that even though he was about 2 months old he weighted just 400 grams and could fit in the palm of my hand. He was a little ball of fur and fleas, and had a cold and an ear infection. Attached pictures with a new hair style (I couldn’t resist the bad boy look it gave him.)

Here’s a video of the little one shortly after his first bath, when we finally got him rid of all the fleas:

That was the first time he slept without the damn fleas disturbing him, and only then did we realize how much energy he had. Even today he seems to always run everywhere, jump, play, he’s really adorable and a very handsome boy.

Red Shopping Bag

Red shopping bag, I fill you up

Let’s have a party, let’s have a party.

Red shopping bag, you’re more than just plastic,

You’re more than amazing, you’re more than fantastic.

8392371523_22848cb55c_b
And believe me that I’m not the least bit sarcastic

When I look at you and say:

“Red shopping bag, you’re not just a bag, no no!

You’re my, you’re my friend!

Thank you for being my friend.”

♪ ♫ Original Red Solo Cup ♪ ♫! Leah H. says, “We were so delighted when CO featured Scrappy back in June! Scrappy is still a little mischief maker. She likes to wrestle and play, and she still has the crazy eyebrows! Scrappy’s owners have responded very well to their cat training. They are now wrapped completely around her little paw. One of Scrappy’s favourite games is to hide and wait for unsuspecting feet to pounce on. Her owners tried putting a bell on her so it would be easier to find her when she hides (especially when she’s outside) but Scrappy wasn’t very pleased with that. It really interfered with her bird hunting. Photos by Lorraine H.

Makin’ Bis-kits

To make bis-kits with lots of fluffy layers,

You want the dough to be very soft.

Gently knead your bis-kit dough into a ball.

This can get messy when the bis-kit dough sticks to your hands,

But that’s half the fun!
