Attack-in-the-Box

All right, let’s make something clear: Out of all the shelter kitties, you chose me. And although I may bring certain, shall we say, baggage to the table, I expect nothing less than prompt attention to my needs: Meals on time, regular treats, a broad assortment of squeaky toys, and furniture I may claw at will. Now, do we understand one another…

“Our cat wasn’t too fond of our foster kitten but he loved the box she came in!” says Redditor DontPokeThatPlease.

Tell Them I’ll Call Back!

“(Sheesh, it never fails. I’ve got my duckie, I put on my favorite CD of ambient wind chimes and waterfalls, I get all comfy in the tub — and that’s when the phone rings.)”

“Max is having a spa day. I just received this from the vet,” says Redditor In4theKill.

HULK SNORGLE!

If you’ll be watching the latest Avengers movie, be sure to stick around for the customary post-credits scene, in which Captain America and Hawkeye console a confused Bruce Banner, whose latest experiment to control his rampaging Hulk tendencies only leads to even stranger results.

A-bok-bok-bok-alypse Now

I wanted a mission, and for my sins, they gave me one: a one-way trip up the river into enemy territory, where Charlie lurked behind every tree, along with his cousin Dave. My assignment: track down a renegade commander loose somewhere in the jungle. Nothing could prepare me for the horror that lay ahead, but I knew I could never stop until I had terminated… Colonel Sanders.

Ground Control to Major Tomcat

“Roger, Houston, this is Space Cadet One on final approach. The lunar surface is just breathtaking, like a giant litter box. Which is kind of a welcome sight since we’ve been up here a while.”

Mike S. crunches the numbers: “One kitten + one spacesuit = Awww-tronaut. Or Cat-ro-naut…or kitteh-o-naut.”

“When I was done laughing and taking pictures, I helped him clean his beard,” says Redditor K1774B.

Squirrel! Of! Misfortune!

‘Round and ’round and ’round he goes, and how he got in this mess, nobody knows.

John Anderton! You Could Use a Puppy Right About Now!

Shoppers who took a microchipped leaflet at London’s Westfield Stratford mall got a new friend: Barley, a shelter pup who would “follow” them from billboard to billboard. It was all part of a campaign for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.

In the News: “Tooning” Out? Or Selling Out?

In recent years, there has been growing awareness of the so-called “Ex-Toon” movement. Centered around so-called “cartoon reparative therapy,” its supporters claim it can help cartoons abandon their so-called unnatural lifestyles and lead so-called “normal” lives. Claims so-called Dr. Cliff Fabulo of the activist group All Four Fingers, “cartoonism is fraught with peril: explosions, falling anvils, guns that go off when you look in them… we show cartoons that change is not only necessary, but possible.”

But not all are convinced. “We’re not bad, we’re just drawn that way,” claims Koko, spokesclown for ToonPride. “This therapy teaches cartoons to be ashamed of who they are, with tragic results. In extreme cases, cartoons undergo dangerous reality-reassignment surgery to appear more normal.” In this recent photo, Pluto meets a heartbroken Mickey Mouse for the first time since the procedure.

Surely You Can’t Be Serious!

This was to be his moment. After a lifetime in different cities, different jobs, not one of them showing he could accept any real responsibility, Mr. Jingles would march into that cockpit, take over the controls, and guide that doomed plane and its terrified passengers to safety. Then suddenly, the sickening realization overcame him: he too had the fish for dinner!
