Let’s Go for a Catwalk

Since 2008, two French hikers have chronicled their trek from Miami, FL to the tip of South America, a journey of 15,000km (about 9,320 miles) through 13 countries.

But what elevates this hike down a hemisphere straight into the Cuteosphere is the third member of the team: A stray kitten who joined them in Louisiana.

Hup, two, three, four, Sender-Inner Keri F. See all the cat-trekking action over at Turn of the World!

“Thank you, nice laaay-deee with the bucket and the feeding us the delicious food for the nomming and the chomping and the froin-gooten-laven-schoil!

My Last Roommate Was Just Like This

Roomie: “So what’cha eatin’ there? Any good? I’m not partial to kibble, myself, but… Say, that’s not bad… Gosh, it’s such a nice day, let’s dine al fresco… I’ll just take this out to the veranda…”

Me: “Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…”

We’ll Get There When We Get There!

“You kids stop squirming around! Shermy, I don’t care what Marcie put in your lunchbox, stop hitting her! No, Rupert, we’re not stopping, so you’ll just have to hold it! And what’s that smell—Harold, have you been bathing in milk again?”

Happy Mother’s Day from Josh N. and everyone at Cute Overburden.

THIS JUST IN: ____, ____, and ____

The Bronx Zoo introduced three new lion cubs to the public, reports the Daily News, which is inviting the public to suggest names for the trio until midnight EST tonight. Wouldn’t “Meg,” “Prongs,” and “NTMTOM” be perfect for them (heh, heh)? Suggest a cub name here!

That’s Hamazing!

Get ready to scrape your jaws off the floor, peeps, as we meet YouTube user flybybutterflies, whose hobby involves training seemingly untrainable creatures (hamsters, goldfish, frat boys, etc.) to perform amazing feats of skill.

So, how good is she? This good:

The Ferret Dispenser’s Clogged Again…

It never fails: I put in my dollar, and what happens? When the stupid machine isn’t just taking my money and not giving me any ferret, it sends down two! Sheesh!

Now I have to walk all the way to Hannah P.’s office and get a refund slip.

I Am the Kibble Dancer

Each day, I journey to the ceremonial supper dish in the sacred kitchen, and offer my humble dance to the Kibble Gods. If my dance pleases them, they will send the Benevolent Hand, bringing her life-giving nourishment for the people in my tribe.

All blessings and honor be upon thee, Chloe N.

THIS JUST IN: Lovely Leopard Lads

Last Valentine’s Day, the Smithsonian Institution’s National Zoo welcomed two clouded leopard cubs. Yesterday the Zoo released a new set of “glamour shots” of the two boys. See more squee-worthy shots on their website.

Wakey-Wakey, Eggs and Bakey!

Any book with the phrase “rising body temperatures trigger arousal” is bound to be a page-turner, so when alert reader Arial R. sent us this, noting “I found this in a book at the library and thought it was oh-so-adorable,” that set our tails a-twitchin’.

Let us now examine the sleeping habits of our friend, the squirrel — who is, to put it charitably, not a morning person. (This will be on your final exam, by the way.)
