The Fuzzy Little Caterpillar*

This cheerful caterpillar* is a blurry sight to see
Presented through the miracle of pin-point photography.
And though her torso’s tentative, she really doesn’t mind,
She’s clear on where she’s headed, fuzzy on what’s left behind.

THIS JUST IN: National Cat Day In Japan

February 22nd is National Cat Day in Japan. Who knew? Well, RocketNews 24 did- but hey, they’re in Japan. It’s already the 22nd there, so in honor of National Cat Day, we present this oldie but goodie: the best of Japan’s National Cat. We all know who we’re talking about: His Royal Girthness. The Circle.

Friday Haiku: 雪のサル (Snow Monkeys)

Snow Monkeys frolic
They love the snow and hot springs
Japan for the win

Japan2013-8874
Cuteporter Izabella S. says: “My boyfriend and I went to Jigokudani, Japan last November. First day we were there, the monkeys never came.”

SnowMonkeys5
“So we almost gave up and went back to Tokyo..but then decided to stay in the area for one more day.” [Good call. -Ed.]

“Next morning on the way to the park I was checking the live cam non stop. I could only see one lonely monkey in the bath so I was sure it will be gone by the time we get there.”

Japan2013-8587
“It’s about a 2 hour trip from Nagano.”

Japan2013-8613
“But when we finally made it there, there were like 100 monkeys hanging around.”

Japan2013-8847
“It was unbelievable! And no glass or cages to separate you.”

SnowMonkeys1
“You cannot touch or feed them of course but you can come really close, as they pretty much ignore people.”

SnowMonkeys2
“Surprisingly there were not many visitors that day. Not sure if it’s common. (And of course the hot bath thing.)”

SnowMonkeys3
“Monkeys really enjoy chilling in there, and it’s super fun to watch.”

SnowMonkeys4
“The pictures I sent were taken by me. Hope you enjoyed them. The little monkey was my favorite.”

Japan2013-8531
“It was really tiny and gentle and eventually fell asleep in the bath. (When I’m feeling sad I look at her pictures.) If you have a chance go and visit them, they are amazing!”

SnowMonkeys6
“Best regards, Izabela.”

But Wait! There’s more!

Animal Scramble

Try it! I am embarrassed to say this one took me :28 seconds.

“I found this game which is literally nothing but cute animal photos in puzzle format, and I immediately thought of Cute Overload. It’d be cool if you did posts of things like this. My friends and I have been wasting so much time on this game. Hahaha.” -Don G.

Seeing is Believing?

He may not be perfect, but Xander the pug is inspirational and awesome. Despite being completely blind, Xander is a fantastic therapy dog and a service dog. All thanks to Marcie and Rodney Beedy, who adopted Xander from the Klamath Animal Shelter, and in no time enrolled him in obedience class (Marcie tied bells to her pantleg!) and had him certified as a service dog. Xander visits hoomins of all ages in hospitals and hospice, assists in community projects and helps raise awareness for the Hands and Words Are Not For Hurting Project. Even Xander’s Facebook page is a very special place.

Winging in the Rain

Maynard had seen his favorite movie musical so many times that he broke out into a song-and-dance number whenever the sprinkler came on.

Turn on the Bubbles, Please?

OK, suuure! (sprinkles lavender all around, runs off to light a few candles, hire a violinist, make snausage martinis, rawhide blinis…)
