#9 Cutest Photo of 2015: omg

img_0785

Are these two of THE most stunning kitteh pix you’ll EVAH come across, or what? “Hi, I thought I needed to send this to you because, well, you’re Cute Overload and this could possibly be the cutest kitten to ever grace the face of the earth,” writes Linda S. “It’s my foster baby, Addie, when she was 6 weeks old. She and her sister Scout went back to the shelter Friday. I’m really going to miss these two. I’ve had the joy of them since they were 4 weeks old.”

[*Note: We responded to Linda’s email asking for details- the location, etc. No word back yet. -Ed.]

UPDATE! “I foster for the Animal Humane Society in St. Paul, MN. Addie and her sister, Scout, were feral kittens and mom was hit by a car.😦 Luckily, they found the kittens and brought them to the AHS. They kept them for about a week and I’ve had them for 3-but I get them for 1 more week. Scout didn’t make the weight for surgery today so they had to come back home with me…darn. They should be available for adoption about Oct. 11th.”

#8 Cutest Photo of 2015: ResQte Of The Week III: Goats With Coats (And Some Cows)

THIS JUST IN from Meredith T. at Farm Sanctuary! “The temperature has been in the single digits and negative degrees at our New York sanctuary lately, and that means one thing: GOATS IN COATS! And all kinds of farm animals in all manner of winter-wear! It’s the Cutest Sight Ever and I thought Cute Overload readers might like to revel in the adorableness.”

Yes, they would.

#7 Cutest Photo of 2015: Arlo & Jasper

1-arlo-jasper2

“Here are Arlo and Jasper, 15 week old Burmese cross brothers from the UK,” write Stephen & Liz. “They love nothing more than playing and cuddling together but unfortunately😦 Jasper managed to fracture his leg two weeks ago. They are absolutely inseparable, so sweet natured and call to each other when Jasper is on bed rest. He’s on the road to recovery:) now after having surgery and can’t wait to play with his brother again!”

#6 Cutest Photo of 2015: Introducing…Rule Of Cuteness #60!

florence-wet
Gina S. says: “I have reviewed the ROCs and find there is nary a word about bath-time, excessive hygiene, nor even re: wet animals/general wetness, bath-induced or other. Therefore, in honor of my new grand-dog Florence, I would like to recommend the following:

“If bath-time reduces your total body matter by up to 50%, that’s cute.”

Consider it DONE! BEFORE, above. AFTER, below. “Photos of Florence by her new parents, my son and his GF. Florence is a rescue Llasa-Poo. She received a bath on Day One. Just because. Florence will undoubtedly get her social media sites in order soon — as soon as g-ma gets the dresses, sweateuws (sp? couldn’t find in Glossary*!) and Halloween costume(s) ready.”

#4 Cutest Photo of 2015: ResQte 3: We KNEW Clark Was Really Superman Super Kitteh!

unnamed2

“I volunteer with TAAG (Transylvania Animal Alliance Group) and we have a very special kitten in our care that we think people would love to see. This is Clark, and he was found paralyzed at 4 weeks old. He was taken in and has quickly become our little mascot because he has the most playful, fun personality and he never lets his limitations get him down. Clark is in a handmade mobility cart made for him by his foster mom and he zooms all over playing like any other kitten. Clark has gotten over one million views this week on Imgur and wants to keep his mission of showing the world that disabled pets are just as fun as every other going!” -Laura K.

[*Note: Here’s a link to Clarkster’s GoFundMe to help with his medical bills. -Ed.]

#2 Cutest Photo of 2015: A What? An….Ezo Momonga?

Well, of course it is. Classic Big J Action, naturally. The Bored Panda article says that these little crazies (sorta a Flying Sqwerl) can only be found on the island of Hokkaido. Which works for me.

#1 Cutest photo of 2015: Ladies & Gentlemen, We Present…Wally Von Jelly Beans

Wally’s her name (we checked into this)—The Qte is her game. KB sent these in and says, “This 2.5 week old cutie pie was rescued Saturday! (She’s now a happy bottle baby at a loving, local foster home.) Her mom is feral (wild) and gave birth to a litter of kittens in someone’s attic. In the process of moving them to a new location, this little girl was dropped by her mom down inside a kitchen wall where the mom couldn’t reach her. The retired homeowner tore a hole in his kitchen wall to rescue the kitten …but mom was long gone. So we stepped in to take over.” (This is not my photo or my text. The good folks at The Cat House on the Kings asked me to pass it on to you.”)

Tuesdays Were Made For Trudy

IMG_5362“This is Trudy, our 6 month old rescue guinea pig, all stretched out after a long day of Wheeking and Popcorning,” says Kim N. Zoom in on the little back footie. Is that a Rule of Cuteness? Maybe “#47: Splayed haunch action is cute.” Or #19: “Dainty paws are cute.” or (new?) #63 “Pancaking is cute.” She’s very glamorous. Thanks for considering making Trudy famous.”

High Five, Norbert!

THERE we go! Great JOB, Norbie! (Wait- that’s BUB’s line.) OK- WAY TO GO, Norbie!

Snug As A Bug In A Rug

Or maybe as “Snug As A Hammie In A TP Tube?”

Remember YOUR First Box?

It was sooooooo long ago, right? “If I fits I sits.” We’re privileged to be able to visit this kitteh’s very first Box Experience, in his/her long road to the inevitable box-hab treatment center.

But ya know—-boxes aren’t JUST for kittehs. Ask Porkchop.

I Just Do Not Believe This

Oliver Gets The Zoomies

Sometimes you’re just a wound-up ball of energy and you gotta release it somehow. ANYwhere. ANYway. ANYhow. THAT’s when you got a bad case o’ the Zoomies.

In Which Gizmo Gets The Boot

When it gets too crowded at home, sometimes you just need to go out find your own crash pad.
