The Littlest Library Patron

Although it’s important for a modern hamster to be well-read, everyone has a favorite classic they return to time and again…


Mine’s The Old Ham and the Sea, by Ernest Hammingway.


We’d love to check this cutie out at our library, Meagan E.

The Rare Fairy Chihuahua

According to folklore we just made up, Fairy Chihuahuas like to sleep in gardens.


If you find one, make a wish! If you wish for a Chihuahua, your wish will be granted! (Otherwise, probably not.)

How to Evict a Lizard

Some homes have roaches, this one has lizards. Well, one lizard, anyway — and getting this nimble cutie back outdoors where it belonged required a filing box, a bathtub, a plastic container, and a little bit of luck.

That’s a Wrap, Sure

Wait… we’re all still here? N-nothing happened?


No earthquakes? No torrents of fire? No express elevator to Heaven?


B-but the guy on the radio said it was guaranteed! I was all prepared to go!


I feel like my whole world is ending because my whole world isn’t ending.


Sender-inner Peter notes that he thought he was staking out an owl’s nest, but this raccoon appeared instead. Perhaps the owl just (pause for effect) disappeared.

Why Did the Sloth Cross the Road?

♫ Because he believed he could flyyyyyy… ♫

You’ve probably seen the original already, but in case not, it’s here.

Sleepy Caturday

“I’m not really sleepy, it’s just that your butchering of Brahms’ Lullabye is sapping my will to live.”

Undercover Kitteh will be getting tuna every night this week.


Ever get that feeling you’re being watched, Karri T.?

Statuesque Beauty

Oh, my leetle rutabaga, why do you eeg-nore me? I loff you!


Just one kees, mah darl-leeng…


And if you think that was strange, the facts are stranger: This squirrel has become obsessed with this statue in a Russian suburb. Full story at the Daily Mail.

Dog Is My Co-pilot

It was 0700 hours when orders came down: After nightfall, we’d be bombing the enemy hydrants east of Wang Chung — over 60 miles into enemy territory.


I took one last look across the airfield. A lot of good men would be on this raid — men with wives, men with puppies. Some of them wouldn’t be coming back. It’s a fact every flyboy faces in Wawa Squadron. Death isn’t just your destiny, he’s your friend — the face in the mirror every morning, the hands tucking you in every night.


I could hear the great engines whining as they turned over. It was time to go. Doris stirred softly as I brushed her cheek. “Don’t wait up for me, honey,” I murmured.
