Mission: Impossible

“Your mission, should you choose to accept it**, is to scale the pole and capture the bird feed. As always, should any member of your IM force be captured or killed, Cute Overload will disavow all knowledge of your actions. Of course, you can always just hop over to the birdbath. This YouTube video will self-destruct end in one minute, 21 seconds. Good luck Jim.”

“We got this video of a squirrel trying to get up a feeder we sprayed with silicone lubricant. He was leery at first but after two tries, he gave up,” says Toni W. of Colorado Springs, CO.

[**Note: When did they ever NOT accept it? Did Jim ever long for a cozy 9-5 gig, or just wanna yell, “Are you nuts? Not a chance. We’re outta here!” -Ed.]

[Listen, I’m trying to get to the lake to meet some friends. Think you could point me in that direction? I’ll just follow your truck, OK?]

Anyone Up For Some Mo Slow Mo?

Fine, fine. Last hour, a bunch o’ puppehs showered their hoomins with some slo-mo kisses. This hour, we head down (over to? around to? across to?) Edgar’s Mission for…SLO MO LAMBS. (Shakes head in disbelief.)

Pucker Up, Puppehs

What could be better than getting a big ol’ wet slobber kiss from your favorite puppeh? When they do it IN SLOW MOTION!

[*Note: Slammin’ soundtrack. Is that Michael Bublé? -Ed.]

Little Pudding UPDATE!

We’ve been telling you about Little Pudding, the wayward sea river otter who was rescued in Oregon, and ended up being nursed back to health at the Oregon Zoo. He decided to take the opportunity to check out the Cascade Stream & Pond Habitat, and clearly liked what he saw!
