Calendar contributor Christine L. writes: “The Calendar arrived today! The stuffed hog is a memorial hog in honor of Barnaby (the Hedgehog whose photo is featured in the February Mini Calendar insert.) It was made by HogToppers. The belly is made from fabric from Barnaby’s favorite snuggle sack. The vial contains a few of his quills. The actual hog in the photos is Eliot, named after T.S. Eliot. Eliot knows he has a lot to live up to and hopes he can make it in the Cute Overload calendar one day.”
You know the feeling, especially back in the day when your family moved- and you had to go to a new school and make new friends. You just wanted to fit in with the guys, right?
Have you ever seen a kitteh that loved to chow down on Bananas? No? Well- you have now. Meet Mao. And hide your Chiquitas.
Until today, the only Mochi I had ever come across were those fantastic little Desserts of Joy you get at Trader Joe’s. Then I opened up the ol’ Cute Overload Email Box, and I saw THESE. “I would love to share with you, Mochi, a miniature cream long haired Dachshund Puppy,” says Lauren.
“These are some of my favorite photos of Mochi. More photos of Mochi can also be found on his Instagram!”
“He’s definitely an Overload of Cute: stubby lil legs (check,) floppy big ears (check,) fluffy fur (check,) and sad puppy dog eyes (check!)

‘Nuff said. From Lisa D., who says “At the kitten nursery where I volunteer (the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA in Burlingame, CA) when a kitten comes in without littermate we give them a stuffed friend to snuggle up with. This little girl became instant best friends with her new bunny friend. I think she’s dreaming of the two of them going on an adventure. An adventure involving (oddly enough) tuna and carrots. Green fields and comfy chairs. Sunshine and sunbeams. And, of course, best friends.”
That’s the assertion of reader Christine D., who says “Check out this one! The eyelashes!” Oh, and this: “Your site is my stress-relieving life saver!” Thank you, Christine! So, let’s consider this question- Are Spiders Cute? (Peacock Spiders ARE in our Hall of Fame, y’know.)
Time to go polling!
Despite what your local TV station weather person might say- your forecast for today is LOTS OF SUN!
“I’d love to share with you pictures of my Rescue Corgi Sun who was the happiest dog EVER on a hike this week.” -Lottie P.
Most cats sleep around 16 hours a day. Kittens and older cats sleep even longer than that. So naturally, these kittehs have cooked up this video on how to spend your time more wisely, while you’re at the office.
WHEW! Still a couple hours of Toesday left on the the East Coast. Say, check out these terrific images c/o Samantha N. “Guinness in all his glor-toe-liousness! Is that a word? Does it matter? Photo by Cat Mom, Samantha.”
