“May 1943. ‘Woman and her dog in the Harlem section.’ Medium format negative by Gordon Parks for the Office of War Information.” –Shorpy McShorpersons.
Bunneh Otter stopped by the fabulous Monterey Bay Aquarium a few days early. No PEEPS, Jelly Beans, or Cadbury Eggs, mind you- but these little maniacs don’t seem to mind at all. (Got a live cam at the bottom, too.)
Wuz just wondering when we’d see another edition of Simon’s Cat, and here we are!
NEW! Our workout video will MELT those pounds away. Up/down, Up/down, Up/down, Up/down!
Before you know it, you’re back down to a size…er, whatever size you were before you started working out. Call NOW, and if you’re one of the next 100 callers, we’ll toss some Jane Fonda Leg Warmers, and a copy of the 2011 Cute Overload Calendar. Perfect for keeping track of all the things you missed, er, four years ago.
[*Note: I know they won’t want a four year old calendar, but they’ve been in the C.O. basement for years now, and we gotta move ’em out. -Ed.]
Any day is a great day to feature photos from Cat House On The Kings, but especially on Thursday for ResQte Of The Week (#2.) These photos are from Jessica L., who adds, “Cuteness Overload Alert! Kitten season is in full swing at CHOTK, and I wanted to share just a couple of the Cutie Pies that will be available for adoption soon. If people would like to donate to their care they can head here.”
I’m not kidding. The email says he wrote it with help. Here’s what we got.
“Hello Cute Overload!
My name is Westley. I was named after the hero in the Princess Bride. I am a young explorer living in the Pacific Northwest. I’m still discovering all the world has to offer me. I LOVE squeaky toys, chewing on sticks, and meeting new friends- both furry and human kind. I finally conquered my biggest fear: climbing down stairs. Yahoo! Now I can focus on the fun things with my human! You can visit my Instagram page. Take care!! (Excuse any typos in the message, my human had to write for me.)
Sent from my iPhone
WESTLEY has an iPhone. I don’t have an iPhone. Grumble grumble.
From the Land Of Japan comes these Instagramsters from Jordan W. “Please enjoy Fumu, the Shihtzu/Maltese mix, being a weirdo and abiding by several Rules in one video- Rules 99, 98, and 43. Lots more photos of the little gremlin here. I just got him at the end of March from Animal Rescue Kansai, a really great animal rescue nonprofit based in Osaka with a branch in Tokyo. I love his little frowny face, his snaggletooth, and the tongue that doesn’t always quite fit in his mouth.”
Click and save! It’ll make you Hoppy!

This one’s an Encore and totally worth another look- c/o Edward and Rachel N. “This was shared with us on Facebook and I had to share with you guys,” they wrote. [*Note- FB video continues to be wonky for us, so we grabbed a version on YouTube. Enjoy. -Ed.]
