“Hey Honey, Did You Break The DVD Player?”

“Not me. I was trying to play something last night and it wouldn’t come out of the slot there, you know where you put the disc in. You got me. BTW, have you seen the cat lately?”

There are lots of things a puppeh needs to learn when he/she is growing up. Where the food dish is, how to tell the hoomins you need to go outside for some personal bizness, how to avoid the cat, that guy that sticks papers through the slot in the door every day…

…and then there’s the matter of the STAIRS.

‘Tocktober First Also Means Adopt A Shelter Dog Month!

Tomorrow is our annual Twenty-Four Hours Of ‘Tocks, our exhausting, over-done hilarious look at ‘Tocks from around the animuhl world. But we also wanted to mention that October First is also the start of Adopt A Shelter Dog Month. Get more deets here, and if you’re in the market for a puppeh, a shelter is a great place to start your search! (Also please notice Rule #58 in the above photo. That’s Derek, who was adopted from the Animal Protection Society of Durham, NC.)

*Note: Here’s where to find your local shelter!

I Haz Hoomin To Hug

[Is easy to hug the hoomin. If you just sit on floor and go ‘Meow?’ Hoomin will pick you up, make all sorts of gooey sounds like ‘Who’s the widdle wuv-wuv, WHO is.’ Then just hop up and clamp on. If hoomin hasn’t fed you in several hours, this move can also be used to strangle. Or so I haz been told.]

I Didn’t MEAN To Shred The Toilet Paper!!!

Will you forgive me, hoomin???

Otter #696: And That’s A Wrap!

Kudos to the guys at Monterey Bay Aquarium for their series on Otter #696, which we have been running since the start of Sea Otter Awareness week on the 20th. In our concluding chapter, Surrogate Mom Rosa shows #696 how to forage for food- it’s not like he can just swim on up to In and Out Burger!

(Also thanks to MBA’s Daphne K. for her timely emails.)

Press Nose, Get Present- Only In The Big J

dsc03564‘Member this video from the middle of the month?

So leave it to the masterminds over at The Big J to raise the stakes a bit higher. Or larger. The same transport company in the above video has decided to deposit a giant black cat inside Shinjuku Station this week. Quoting the ever-vigilant RocketNews24: “The big cat will be ‘awake’ and spitting out 72 different presents at Shinjuku Station’s Metro Promenade from 11:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m. every day until 4 October. After that, he goes on tour, stopping at ten locations around the country, like a giant, furry, four-legged, off-season Santa with presents for furballs.”

A Santa…with furballs. Let’s think on that one.
