ResQte Of The Week: Behind The Scenes At CHOTK

Cat House On The Kings is a regularly featured, er, feature here on C.O. for two reasons. They do magnificent ResQte work, and BUTTERNUT MCFLUFFERSON. Here’s a look at how it all happens.

Ultimate Baroo (Shrimp Division)

shrimp3OK, OK. We’ve had more than one Ultimate Baroo. To be fair, though- at the time, those Baroos did seem to be the Ultimate in…Baroo-ness. Then we got this photo of Shrimp from Natalie W. and decided that, well, Shrimp does in fact deserve Ultimate Baroo Status, too. How can she not?

Hey There, Per-fessor!*

Got some distinctly Cute Side-Eye going on here. This would be “Theo ‘The Professor PhD-og,’ from Cuteporter Lee W.

Which One Is The Stuffie?

2014 november mitzi (9)It’s hard to tell, isn’t it! “Can you see Mitzi she has been mistaken for a soft toy!! I wonder why!!! Picture taken by Gina C., proud owner of a Real Live Cutie Pie!”

Rubbing Me the Wrong Way?

What a comically alien concept. There is no wrong way. Now, continue, slave…


Proof Positive That They’re Smarter Than We Are

I mean, who’s getting who to do their bidding here?

A Smedley find.

OK, Time To Break The Interwebs

seaotterpup9THIS JUST IN from Dual Cuteporters Tracey M. and Erin D. This female pup (#681) was found September 30th, on Coastways Beach in Northern California between the San Mateo and Santa Cruz county line. WARNING: This is SO Cute- you should be sitting down. If you fall over from The Cute and smack yer head- not our fault. OK- proceed.

She is now at the Shedd Aquarium after a month-long stay at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Quoting ABC7, “On arrival at Monterey Bay Aquarium, ‘681’ weighed 1.0kg..”

“…which is tiny for a newborn sea otter, and she had been separated from mom for at least 16 hours,” said Karl Mayer, Animal Care Coordinator for the Sea Otter Program.

“This meant it was critical that we begin to get calories into her as quickly as possible.”

C.O. Welcomes “Maple-etta Caramella Vassar” To Nosevember

20140730_083525There are noses in Nosevember…and then, there are NOSES. (This is the second type.)

“Here’s our darling Maple. She rules our house but is the sweetest, coziest snuggly kitteh ever! Her whole name is Maple-etta Caramella Vassar.” -Kimberly V.

P1330539[*Note- This is actually December snowfall from last year. -Ed.]

“Having a new puppy during one of the longest, coldest winters I can remember here in Northern Minnesota was quite a circus,” says Cassie N.
“We picked up Phoebe the German Wirehaired Pointer last Nosevember and she needed lots of exercise! Phoebe was just under 4 months old in this photo. She had lots of fun in the snow this day, despite it being -24F! She outgrew her coat just in time for spring! Taken on 12-16-13.”

Laser Eye-Blasters Standing By!

???????????????????????????????[Come any closer, hoomin- and me and my pal Quidi here are gonna let ya have it. Y’know, like Cyclops in X-Men?]

“I thought I had a couple adorable Nose pictures for Nosevember! The first one below is my gentle, sweet cat Quidi (pronounced ‘Kiddy.’) We found Quidi abandoned in a box outside our basement door a few years ago. He’s the sweetest, best little buddy in the world. Next we have our Stella Doll. She picked us out at the local SPCA a couple years ago. Thanks for your wonderful, adorable website! I’ve been following Cute Overload for many years!”

“PS. These photos were all shot by Gerard M. The other human in our house (and my other half.)” -Marsha C., St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.”
