THIS JUST IN: Twin Horsies, Maybe

A horse owner in England got a two-for-one deal when her prize mare gave birth to a pair of fillies. Although the babies look alike, they might not be truly identical twins, says an expert. Nevertheless, the thirsty girls keep Mom twice as busy.

Double Take, Take Two

Longtime Cuteologists will remember Amelia Santiago, crafter of “doppelganger dog sculptures.” Now she’s doubling down with a new set of photos of her latest lifelike (re)creations. You can see even more here and check out her website.




Gonna Need that Ear Back, Thanks…

When a bear cub wandered into the yard of a Slovenian family, it made itself right at home — to the delight and/or chagrin of the family dog. Local authorities hope to be able to care for the cub soon.

Caution: Advanced Cuteness Ahead

Oh, you may think you can withstand lethal amounts of cuteness. You’ve endured lorises being tickled, otters holding hands, pandas somersaulting, and walked away with nothing but a facial tic and a two-point drop in IQ. But be warned — nothing you have seen can prepare you for… Cricket.

A Prayer Before the Hunt

Oh most merciful Supreme Kitty, I thank thee for the bounteous backyards thou has placed before mine eye. Bless I, your humble servant, as I embark on my daily quest for sustenance and glory. Make swift mine legs and sharp mine claws, that I may chase down many mousies and little birds, and may your high priests The Hoomins smile upon mine offerings when I drop them on the carpet before them.


Amen, Amy L.

Today’s Wilderness Survival Tip

If you are lost and thirsty, your Jack Russell Terrier will function as a divining rod. Simply hold the terrier over the ground, and it will paddle when water is near.

Sender-inner Tamara A. says that Jake always does this.

Goosey Two Shoes

Just when we thought Red Goose Shoes went out of business decades ago, they go and make a comeback. Sender-inner Rebecca B. explains:

These nice folks were staying with us at the St. Francis Inn in St. Augustine, FL. They let me photograph their pet goose, who goes by the name of “Gator.”


While walking alongside his owners in urban or suburban areas, Gator often has to cross many blocks of asphalt and concrete. All that rough terrain takes a toll on his feet, so his people commissioned a special pair of Teva sandals for their bird.


They say it’s totally worth the expense, and Gator seems to like the shoes just fine …


… though sometimes it looks like he “marches” more than he walks. Very deliberate steps.

The DirecTV Guy Looks Kinda Different

Frogulence — I has it (ribbet).

I like the best (ribbet). But I also like savings the money (ribbet).


So when DirecTV tell me five months free plus mini giraffe for most premium package (ribbet)… I jump in it like lily pond (ribbet).


From sender-inner Natalie F.: “I recently was checking your site and saw a picture my dad, Barry F. had submitted several years back with my Pekingese, Puka Shu-shu and the rescued bull frog. The very day you posted this, my daughter caught a tree frog and decided to keep her as a pet. I am a photographer and had to take some quick photos of our tree frog, Princess, with a furry friend to send in for a tribute to my sweet beloved Puka!”
