Just Another Manú Monday

Actually- this is the first Manú Monday. But anything to work that Bangles lyric in, right? Anyway, Manú the Kitteh has an easy way to fall asleep. No Kitteh-sized Excedrin PM™ for him, no! He just asks his hoomin to give him a few keeses on the wips, and it’s lights out by :25. BOOM! Game Ovah!

Rats, It’s Monday: Interview With The Rat

cuteoberload2oscarwinHopefully you got a chance to see our YAY It’s Friday Feature with Martin “Marty” Mouse, who is now our Official Favorite Ratso Ever. Over the weekend, we interviewed Marty to find out how he got to be the life of the party.

Marty, thanks for taking time to chat. We know with all your social media accounts, you’re a busy fella. Anyway- you just took the Yogie Bucket Challenge. How’d that go?

I’d often dreamed of it waining yogies, and den one day it did! I scooped up all I could and took dem to my hidey hole.

Ah, I see. OK, moving on- U were rescued from a pet store. What was that like?
I was living at the PetSmart® #1314, and dey were weally nice to me and took good care ob me, but I was dere a long time and I got bored. All my brothers and sisters got adopted. When my mom came by, I saw her and said “Hey! You, take me home!” So she did, and my life is awesome. I hab my berry own office building dat goes wiff me from da office where me and mom work all day, then to the bedroom at night for sleeping. I do internashunal bizness, I have a band called Marty & the Corms, I hab an adbice column called “Deer Marty” and I love snuggles wiff my mom and dad.

And now it’s Life In The Fast Lane- Facebook, Twitter, Cute Overload. We saw a rumor on Twitter that you met Beyoncé. True?
Um, no. I did win an Oscar® last year and met lots of famouse peoples, but Beyoncé was not dere.

Any final words for your C.O. fans?
Important bizness adbice….it’s berry important to remember to balance your diribitibs and your interest ratios wiffout forgetting to dibest your forfeitures wiff taxashuns. Split your stocks and inbest your monies wiff smarts. P.S. I don’t like Mondays.

[*Note: If you are considering getting a rat, please know that rats are very social animals and only do well in pairs or groups. It is a rare case for a rat to prefer to be a lone rat, like Marty and his hoomins are with him ALL day. So if you are considering a rat adoption, please consider getting two or more and double your fun! We want all rats to be happy and healthy!” -Marty’s Hoomin.

Now That Will Be QUITE Enuff, Ro-Ro

Ducks & Hippos, O My!

photo 4You know this fellow’s work, though you might not know his name.

He’s Florentijn Hofman, and he’s the fellow responsible for the Big Rubber Duck that just sailed into LA recently. (In fact, On The Scene Cuteporter Jennifer C. just sent us these first two shots. “Here are photos of the giant rubber duck (also conveniently displaying Rule #7.) Many readers may not realize it’s actually a parent! For reference, Baby Duck is about 10′ tall. Keep up the spec-quack-ular work!”

Now, Mr. Hofman has another Cute Animuhl Project called HippopoThames! Check it out:

He built it in an area in London known as the Royal Docks, and then floated it down the Thames to an area called Nine Elms on the South Bank.

It’s part of a month-long event called “Totally Thames.”

Bunday Afternoon: A Bun In The Sun

unnamed“This is our daughter’s bun, Lance. He jumped on top of his portable carrier, which was on the floor, then from there, jumped up onto this bar stool. However, he didn’t think about how he was going to get down. My silly, special Gran-Bunneh.” -K & J Klemm.

[Verrrrrry close to Rule #40 here! -Ed.]
