Orange Marmasplosion

Peeps, if I’m doin’ the posts today, I’m postin’ some tabby tigers. Noooo apologies. You did know there’s a whole Flickr group full of these fine felines, right?

Rule of Cuteness #4: more than one species of baby flopping around is cute

The color coordination is irresistible, and the low-down camera angle just accentuates the fact they are not much larger than the blades of grass they sit on. *But* I give them an 8.5—no paws are up, and there is the BEF on the bunny (Beady Eye Factor)

Hey, how did that kitten get on my grandma’s floor? [Best linoleum pattern Evar!]

Christina R., beautiful job.


What’s more delicious? this kitten stack from *Roes* Flickr Photostream or THIS 100-by-100 stack of In and Out Burgers??!

Thanks, Anne L.!

CuteOverload—where you can expect the maximum kittens per square inch

We really pack ’em in, People.

Rhum, the orange Italian

Rhum the kitten and Aluccia wrote in, and all Aluccia said was: “i love him.”

P.S. Desktop photo alert! We’re talking twice life-sized, People!

Encore: Nice Antennae, Baby.

Spring is here, and our lawn’s got the dandelions to prove it.  Yaaay.
Never mind that, though; this CO Classic is prettier.

Ladies and Gentlemens, I present to you: The Tiniest of Feets!


Nuri P., nice email sig:


FLASHBACK: Our First-Ever ResQte™

Happy Spring Saturday, Peeps! Who’s up for a few Lil’ Floating Snacks? er… ‘quacks’?

Maggie from Australia writes: “They are Pacific Black ducklings, native to Australia, who we rescued after they fell into the man-made water feature outside our home and couldn’t get out again [they were only a few days old and were a long way from flying]…”


“This picture was taken one night when we’d returned the ducklings to their temporary sanctuary in our guest bathroom. Lucy, our 3 year old beagle, was fascinated by them and whimpered for hours after they were taken away – she missed her little mates.”

The baby ducks should be releases to the wild later this month… Thanks, Maggie.

You’re Soaking In It

I went looking through the archives for a photo which could satisfactorily convey a message of “Thank the Gooshy Goddess THAT ordeal’s finally over.”  Et voila, from July 14 of ’07.  Check’s in the mail, Commissioner Shulman.


No, I DIDN’T enjoy my FIRST BATH, actually.


But thanks for ASKING!!!

[bares claws and swipes in air: Ehn! Ehn! Ehn!]

And, NICE leg in the background, Shroom V.!

Squirrels Still Have Tongues!

Way back on March 13th of 2006, we made a startling discovery, and we did it together. I’m proud of us, you know.

It’s TRUE, people! This anerable squirrel has his tongue slurping out. It’s so nice of Patty the Wildlife Rescuer to hold the water faucet on for him, isn’t it?

Mo’ Bunny Feets.

Mornin’, Peeps. Got a two-fer for ya. This first one hails from March 21 of 2007

If you smooosh this bun into the keyboard, he’d prolly clean some lint out. Of course he’d disapprove of this, being a bunny and all, so proceed at yer own risk.

anti-static version also available (highly recommended)

Klean Kai Bun and Crisel, thank you!


…and this hyphen-topped cotton-tailed gem is from the Fall of that same year:

Sender-Inner Andrew J. bravely says: “Saw this little guy gettin’ beat on by the neighbor cat. Like some kind of Superman, I swooped down, and fended off the feline felon. He’s now sleepin’ one off in an old shoe box…”

even the toebeans are fluffy

GOOD WORK, Andrew J. Keeping the world safe, one delicious bunny toe at a time. [sigh.]

Teh Qte™ is Strong in This One

For those of you unfamiliar with Tatooine and the Dune Sea, what you’re looking at is a Gammorean Guard, one of the giant green pig thugs who usually work for galactic gangsters like Jabba the Hutt.  They are loyal and strong, but they’re also notoriously susceptible to Jedi mind tricks.

Let’s get a closeup of that caption:

Yep.  Out of frame, little moppet Anakin has just opened up a Box O’ Ewoks.

CO Classics™: “Borrrrrrring!”

[This delicate snippet of social commentary is from Feb 23 of 2006.  Not sure what put this one into my head today.  – Ed.]





This Hedger’s name is Pascale. PASCALE, People! WHO names their hedgehog Pascale? Someone who obviously knows what they’re doing. Straight from ““, taken by Sean Soznik. Brillllllliant!

Negotiations… are in progress

"Oh I think you’re gonna do better than that, doc.  See, I been checkin’ around, an’ I happen to know what a pile of white lion cubs is worth to you and your organization.  It’d be a shame if we couldn’t come to a mutually beneficial agreement, doc, a real shame.  And it ain’t like we’re asking for a lot, you know?  I mean how many giraffes does one zoo need?"  [wipes drool with paw]


"Sorry.  ‘Sides, an’ I hate to hafta bring this up, but little Nicky Two Noms here is a wicked tickler…"

Seen on CBS News.  Eeeeee!!!!
