Stand by for your head melting off your shoulders in 5…4…3…2…
HEAD TO BODY RATIO: If your head is exponentially larger than the rest of your entire body, that’s cute.
Taken at Saving Grace Rescue. From The Furrtographer, who adds “That’s Murcy. She was born with twisted hind legs that just stick out behind her and kind of lay there. It doesn’t bother her at all and she was adopted recently from Saving Grace.”

I do believe that Sunny is giving us just a LITTLE bit of attitude. Maybe it’s because there’s a toaster nearby.
“Hi Cute Overload team, this is my cockatiel Sunny, looking like a little weirdo while napping with her foot tucked in. She is terrified of toasters and loves lentils. A complex creature.
Even if you don’t post hope you enjoy the pics! Thanks for your fantastic website!” -Jill S.

Zoey missed Grandma. Zoey goes to the moon when she sees Grandma.

From Barb and Paul, who are patiently waiting for the Cute.
Just do it. Right now. Turn ’em up. QUICKLY.
You’ll just have to trust us on this one.

The Stylist is reporting there is Bunneh Jumping Contests going on over in Jean, Germany…
They report: “Originally a Scandinavian sport, each competing rabbit hops over a variety of miniature sized jumps, and each rabbit is scored based on how many jumps they clear.”
Nothing in the rules says these buns can’t both jump AND disapprove of said jumping.
According to the story, the white bunny “Snoopy” was the clear winner, jumping around 60cm high. That’s twelve Cute Overload Calendars stacked on top of each other, People.
I also gotta give props to this disapproving bun who is all disapproving but ‘ehn!’ at the same time:
And then manages to clear THE WATER JUMP LULZ!

“This is Millie. She was abandoned in a casino parking lot in Laughlin, NV with her 4 siblings and her Mama. The babies were only two days old!! Some good people brought them over to Arizona to be rescued. My husband and I were able to adopt her. In fact, they were all adopted to forever homes, even Mama!!” :)
“Millie is the runt and is perfectly healthy now.”
“She is 5 months old now, and about 4 1/2 lbs.”
“She got her name for “millimeter” because she’s so tiny…”
“…and “Milli Vanilli” because she’s like vanilla ice cream!”
Oops! Looks like they swam the wrong way.
The kindness of strangers rescued the pack.
And all eleven ducks said, “Quack, quack, quack.”
“Eleven ducklings trapped in a storm drain are alive and well thanks to two alert Mount Vernon residents and a resourceful crew with the city’s fire department! “Thanks to their diligence and selflessness, an entire family of ducklings was saved from nearly certain peril,” said Jeff Brown with Skagit County Washington Search and Rescue.
Rest of the story over at KOMO News. Thank you to Susan H., who says, “Hi! Here’s a great story about 11 ducklings rescued by the Mt. Vernon (WA) fire department. More candidates for the Men of CO calendar, methinks!! P.S. I love that they blocked the entire lane for the rescue!”
This chirpy little whackadoodle will make your day. Meet Kemosabe, the Prehensile-Tailed Porcupine, or “Coendou.”
If you missed him last summer, here he is at Animal Wonders in Missoula, Montana, clutching/nomming his favored papaya with his keeper, Jessi Knudsen Castaneda. When he’s not stuffing his prodigious belleh, he “gives educational presentations about his unique species, wildlife, and conservation,” according to his YouTube video clip bio.
