Just Popping In For A Quick Visit, K?

This Wild Sea Otter decided to drop by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Great Tide Pool. The video says, “After a power nap and grooming session, he was back into the bay to dive and hunt for urchins and crabs.”

Sounds like the perfect day, wouldn’t you agree?

Kitteh Kondos

As they mentioned on Laughing Squid, this somehow reminds you of the opening sequence to The Brady Bunch. (Or maybe…Whac A Mole: Kitteh Edition?)

ResQte Of The Week: Koza From Poland

Koza“Meet Koza (Polish for ‘Goat‘), my parents’ two-year old kitty. She’s a rescue, found as a tiny feral kitten during a particularly severe winter. She had suffered serious frostbite to her tail (which had to be partially amputated), as well as part of her ear. Thankfully, she made a quick recovery and is now an adventurous kitty with quite a personality. She is the princess among all the household pets, including Pyza, Dzika, Rivka and Obama (cats) as well as Belfast, Toxy and Sonia (dogs). Koza would love to be featured on CO and has been practicing her Rule #40 skillz. She sends her regards from Warsaw, Poland!” -Zofia B.

“I tried to get Kokomo to play with his many other toys but he wasn’t interested. Here he is giving me some major Side-Eye and then being content once I brought out Babe (below.)” -Wendy W.



多摩に満足して16日 (Happy 16th To Tama)

Tama is the “Super Ultra Station Master and Operating Officer at Kishi Station in Kinokawa, Wakayama Prefecture, Japan.” Try and get all of THAT on a business card. (C.O. archival super coverage here and here.) Today is Tama’s Sweet 16th Birthday! (Video of the festivities c/o NHK NEWSweb.)


You can even buy Tama stuff (of course) here. I think. Chrome won’t translate this one. Nuts.

Here’s the current work schedule for Tama and intern Nitama.

So…We Got (Another) Email From Westley

Processed with VSCOcam with s2 preset‘Member Westley The Bernese Mountain Doggeh from earlier in the month? Well, he’s written us another email.

“I am now 4 months old and growing, and much more comfortable around new people. I’ve started puppy class and enjoy playing with fellow classmates. I’ve learned how to work the puppy eyes for treats.”
