(“Here’s my baby Leopard Tortoise named Nelson Dorothy “Chui” Mandela Markowitz Pomaranc. She was Googling some Tortoises after breakfast.” -Emily W.)


“♬ I’m A Pepper, You’re A Pepper ♫…”

Wouldn’t you like to be Peppers too, Maymo & Penny? (Here’s the theme song if you aren’t old enough to know it forgot it.)

“♬ If You’re Happy And You Know It ♫…”

Go ahead, you know the words little guy! Ready? Here we go….

Clean Water

Everybody needs clean water. (And a hoomin to help you take a bath in it always helps!)

ResQte Of The Week (Ferret Friday Edition)

SteveInGardenFrom Shelly L.: “I am a huge C.O. fan and visit multiple times a day to create an cloud of positivity that will hopefully buffer any negative radiant rays emanating from a certain kindness-challenged homo sapien I am forced to interact with during my daily occupational hours. Or, you could say that I work with a total butthead-happiness-sucker and you help a lot. Note-the rest of my coworkers are great!”

“Here are photos of my personal clouds of happiness and light! (Steve, shown in first photo above.) I think you may have a dearth of ferret photos because out of approximately 8,472 ferret photos I have taken, sixteen were not a blurry streak going by. This is probably why you seem to have more videos than pictures of ferrets, weasels, and other sleek and crazy pets. Every one of my pets is a ResQte!”


C.O. Cat Café World Tour: Hong Kong

This one is 100% Hellll-o, Kitteh. Because why not.

Now, it’s not a Café per sé, but the overwhelming Kitteh Vibe pushes this over the top. Like everything else over there.

The BuzzFeed article says Hello Kitty Chinese Cuisine opened just two months ago.

Flashback Friday: Make Dinner, Not War

[‘SCUSE me, sir- um, before you blast whoever you’re gonna blast- it’s 17:00- how about my chow?]

Outstanding photo of “Soldier and cat, 1940″ is from Reddit, and I wish I could claim the headline, but it was provided by Arne.

ResQte Of The Week 2: “Long Time Reader, First Time, Uh, Submissioner?”

IMG_0374From The C.O. Mailbag: “Dear Cute Overload, your site is a major reason why I now own two cats, so it only seems fair that I share photos of what you have wrought,” Earnest C. tells us.


“The little gray one is a two-year-old, adopted from the Oregon Humane Society. His name is Nex. The big guy is named Felix. He’s a seven-year-old Manx, rescued from a less than stable home. I was worried that two cats of different sizes and totally different age demographics wouldn’t get along, but as you can see from the photos, they’ve adopted one another as kitty bros.”

“Sure, having these two around has wrecked my blinds beyond all recognition, and I’m singlehandedly propping up the entire adhesive lint roller industry, but it’s not like I can ever be angry at them. They’re just too adorable, and even worse, they’re keenly aware of this fact.”

“Anyway, thanks convincing me to adopt. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve made in decades, both for the cats and for myself.”


ResQte Of The Week: Purritos To GO, Please

17670918156_837b475c06_bThe Best Friends Animal Society in Salt Lake City (also an L.A. location) has taken in 500+ kittens in the last two months, and they need homes!

“Sometimes you have to go Cute to raise awareness about an important issue. We’re thrilled the campaign is getting so much attention and hope that we’re inspiring people to take action,” said Eric Rayvid of BFAS in an email to Cute Overload.

“If you’re looking for a new pet, we urge you to adopt.”

“If you can’t take a new pet into your home, volunteer at your local humane society.”

“If you don’t have the time, donations are always needed to take care of homeless pets in your area.”
