…..ain’t NOBODY happy. (Garfi, from Ufunk.net.)
You might have seen this last week- it was all over social media. A die-hard Kansas City Royals fan named Katie Castan just laid it on the line:
The Royals did win their playoff series- they play for the AL pennant starting tomorrow night- and the “He” in the sign paid up. (How could he not?) C.O. contacted Katie, who said “We were planning to visit KC Pet Project this past weekend, but on Thursday, a family of wonderful pet owners, who wish to remain anonymous, contacted us. They had been searching for a new home for their Corgi for a few months without success. Since a Corgi is my dream dog, we went to meet her and I fell in love. We both agreed and adopted Lucy “Rally” Castan, a 4 year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi.”

From Barb (sans Paul, ‘cuz he’s fishing) -struggling to be Cute. Cred to Saffron for noticing the then-unintentional but totally on-point Star Trek reference.
We have established that when Animuhls give us the ol’ Side-Eye…it’s Cute. Question: what if their eyes are ON the side? So theoretically…they’re in Cute Compliance 100% of the time. Yes? No? Comments encouraged!
“C.O. is my perennial pick-me-up. I wanted to share pictures of our Teddy Bear Guinea Pig named Pooky (after Garfield’s teddy bear.) She also only eats grass as a treat. No carrots, no lettuce, no parsley. Sincerely and hopeful, Briana and Karen.”
One catch, though- it’s Down Undah. (“We are nestled in 5 acres of gardens in a quiet forest valley 6 kms outside Atherton, Queensland- an hour’s drive inland from Cairns.”) Got that? So save those frequent flier miles!
There’s a place there called the Tolga Bat Hospital.
The story at Lost At E Minor says you can sign up at the TBH to be a volunteer!
Quoting the story, volunteers do tasks like “preparing food and milk, taking care of bat orphans, cleaning the cages, helping to search for or release bats in rain forests, keeping weeds away, and even assisting on research projects.”
Wow, what can you say about this photo but “Um, how CLOSE were you to get this shot?” Sarah B. sent this in and sez, “Hello, I just returned from Rwanda where I hiked to find Gorillas. Here’s a Silverback from behind! I was very close. That photo was taken with my iPhone, so not much of a zoom. A small gorilla was running & bumped into my husband!”
[*Note: Cuteporter Jen wrote us today and told us, “Did you know today is Octopus Awareness Day? Sorry, I don’t have any Cute Octopus pics to share, but I’m sure you can use one from your archives. Or that famous video of the coconut-carrying octopus! [We did. -Ed.] I love your site. It’s the only thing that keeps me sane sometimes.” Happy to oblige with this Encore Presentaysh written by Prongs, from December 15th, 2009. -Ed.]
Well, here’s something you don’t see everyday. Our friends over at National Geographic report that octopuses have been discovered tip-toeing with coconut-shell halves suctioned to their undersides, then reassembling the halves and disappearing inside for protection.
Pretty amazing stuff.

Thanks, Marilyn T.

No doubt you;ve heard that candy bar commercial- now see Snicker’s Quality Tox up close & personal. “This is our Manx named Nakita, Niki, or “Snickers.” She has a little pompom for a tail. Her fur is as soft as a bunny and her tail confirms it. Notice the feet fur too. She can really slide into a room.” -Melodee I.
