A Tail Of Two Friends

One’s big and has a long, floppy tail. The other is small and WANTS the long, floppy tail. That sums it up nicely.

(Mashable. Also note- not much sound in this one, no need for Speakers Up.)

Is It “Wye-Fye,” Or “Wiffy?”

IMG_3242You know, the magical techno thing that allows your laptop to go where you go, and still be connected to The InterTubes. Some say WYE-FYE, others say WIFFY or even WIFEY. Well, this Scottish Fold Kitteh is NAMED “Wifi,” and she doesn’t care HOW you say it. Just as long as you don’t forget to scritch her head.

ResQte Of The Week II: Cora

unnamedLook at that little Mini-Chubster down there! Good GRIEF! “This is my ResQte Teddy-Bear Hamster Cora, which I adopted last year from Wee Companions in San Diego. She only has three legs but gets around just fine. She’s been busy practicing her yoga lately. Namaste!” -Annie.

(PS Cora is sister to Cashew, who was also adopted from Wee Companions earlier last year.)

Hello, Hamish!

IMG_7992“This is Hamish, He’s a massive Cute Overload fan, as is Gemma his human. He is a much loved (but crazy) bearded collie. He’s looking depressed because he only lives to be a Cute Overload model one day, can you help??? Love your website so much!” -Johnny E.

[*Note- Yeah, we can help. -Ed.]


All Hail The Prince Of Puff!

“This is Sylvester, Prince of Puff,” explains Nikki B. At 2 lbs., he is barely bigger than his brush but he loves to be groomed and cuddled.”

“He leads his litter mates on their explorations of the kitten nursery and he is a great feline friend to the resident dog.”


ResQte Of The Week: Furrtographer Files, Vol. II

FUR_0736-XLLast week, we presented the first installment of “Furrtographer Faves” for ResQte Of The Week, ’cause, well, we liked the name- how the F and F go together. Today we present part II! (It’s “Files” now, though.)

First up, we have a Black Kitteh (above) named Ferdinand, and the Tortie below is named Stockton. Ferdy was born with eyelid agenesis. According to Saving Grace Rescue in San Francisco, his eyes are healing well after surgery. He is extra playful, has a big, loud purr and will be a large, robust hunk of a cat!

SGR says Stockton “is from a Stockton animal shelter and arrived here at 4 weeks of age with lumbar spine trauma. She’s adorable, playful and loving. The only extra care she needs is bladder expressions. She gets around and even climbs cat trees since her hind legs do move. It’s her lumbar spine muscles that are weak.” Both of ‘em are at SG, right now, as in today! If you know someone in the area who wants a ResQte Kitteh, forward them the link to this post!

People, meet Meet Millie (aka Stampy.)
