“In celebration of ‘Tocktober here are Quadruple Elk ‘Tocks taken in Prince Albert National Park. The picture was taken on a very snowy day in February, a sad reminder of the snow we will certainly get in Canada very shortly.” -Erika B.
Robin C., Ph.D. at Marshall University in Huntington, WV sent us this email:
“Not sure this is something you do, but I thought I’d try. Meet Sir Pounce; he showed up on my friend’s deck near Cabell-Huntington Hospital 4 months ago….and hasn’t left. He has a collar and is litter trained and he’s very clean, but he’s not chipped and we can’t find his owner.”
“He’s very sweet and gets along with dogs. Neither of us can take him in and we’ve just about exhausted our resources for trying to find him a good home. He wants to come inside so badly, and we want him to have a wonderful indoor home, especially before it gets cold here in WV. There is only one non-kill shelter in our area and they’re not accepting cats, so we don’t know what to do!”
“If you could possibly post his pictures and info we’d be so grateful! I’m also willing to drive him a fair distance for a good home. Thank you for all you do. Your site is exactly what the Internets should be used for!” [If U are interested in adopting or know where Sir Pounce belongs, drop us a note and we’ll forward it to Robin. Thanks. -Ed.]
His name…..is ACER.
He’s three…..and he sleeps in a small stable. Of course he does.
You may pick yourself up off the floor whenever it’s convenient.
Now is this little dude a Scruffmuffin, or what? Let’s hear what Kate G. has to say.
“I foster for our local SPCA, and here is one of my current fosters. He is about 3 weeks old and I named him Fenrir Grayback*, because he looks like a little werewolf…only more adorable. When he is of age in approximately 2 months, he’ll be at the York County SPCA in Pennsylvania. An approved application is needed for adoption. Adoption donation is $130 which includes all his current shots, plus he will be neutered and chipped.”
“Thank you for a happy website I can go to when I need to be picked up.”
[*Note- it's a Harry Potter thing. -Ed.]
Cuteporter Yorekani tells us, “Oleg did it again. The levels of cute are heavily exceeding the critical mass in this video! Caution is advised when attempting to watch.”
Just Day #2 of ‘Tocktober. It’s also the month for Halloween- and over in The Big J, they’re hard at work crankin’ out the Halloween QTE. (Documented in 2013 here.) Take a look at these ice cream treats from Baskin Robbins. (If you want to go hard-core with the original Japanese, go for it.)
Update! GAAAAAAAAAAA they’re already rolling out CHRISTMAS!
RocketNews 24 says they’re on sale through the 31st. Krispy Kreme/Japan is also offering some Halloween-themed donuts, but we didn’t see any QTE in their offerings. Boo to THEM.
Hopefully, Mister Donut will still come through like they did last year:
Nice Ear Flop there too, pal! “Our rescue baby Roger just celebrated his first birthday and wanted to share this photo taken by his daddy, Robert M. Thank you!” -Jennie H.
It’s 11:59pm PT, and we’re wrapping up ‘Tocktober 1st’s 24 Hours Of ‘Tocks! Many thanks to everyone who sent some ‘Tocks in! There’s still 30 days left in the month of ‘Tocktober, so feel free to send ‘em our way- we personally peruse ALL ‘Tocks. Like Chloe Bear here, from Nikki & Steve!
Cute Overload’s 24 Hours Of ‘Tocks was powered by several helpings of Dannon® Light & Fit® Caramel Macchiato Greek Nonfat Yogurt, and a jug or two of Trop 50 OJ. And maybe a few Pumpkin Spice Halloween Oreos. (Although it seems Target WILL NOT HAVE their exclusive Candy Corn ones this year?! Wrote ‘em, 0 response. #Bummedout.)
Now back to our regular programming!
