Caturday: And Then Along Comes Mary

“This is Lady Mary, being the little imp she is, hanging on the curtain. She is from a litter of 5 that I am fostering for Save the Animals Foundation in Cincinnati. Thanks for considering her for CO!” -Cathy O’B.


T’ai Chi for Cats

Many moves in T’ai Chi are often named for the activities they resemble, such as “Parting the wild horse’s mane.” Here we see Quat Mi-Yao, fifth-generation T’ai Chi master, demonstrate “Eating the Invisible Tuna.”

Gus: The Ultimate Food Thief

Cuteporter Abbey R. in The Big Apple fills us in on the magnificence that is…..Gus.

“Hello Cute Overload: This is Gus, our basset hound keeping a watch out for all entrants and food-droppers at our house. He never seems to outgrow the name ‘Squat-O’. He’s about 75 lbs…the ultimate food thief.”

Beautiful Gus

“He doesn’t sit down long when the camera’s on him, if he sees someone paying attention to him he tends to get up and beg for food.”

Classic Meg Rewind: January 16, 2007

(bird) ‘Tocks Up!

When things got you down
and you got a perma-frown it’s

‘Tocks Up!
(bird) ‘Tocks Up!

When everything sucks
and your pockets have no bucks it’s

‘Tocks Up!
‘Tocks Up!

When you sleep through the alarm
and Grandpa bought the farm it’s

‘Tocks Up!
(in this case bird) ‘Tocks Up!

Sing it with me, People! (and William B.T.!)

Friday ‘Tock Three-Pack

“This is a photo we took on Boston Common a few months ago – tall, short and medium ‘tocks!” -Deb B.


“I think my frenchie Monty has the cutest bum! He has matching swirls and a little nub tail. You can see he’s a little sensitive about having it photographed.” -Megan.


“Hi Cute Overload! This is our kitten, Matty. Cheers, Lauren.”

POLL + THIS JUST IN: Chickens. With Sweatuews!

[FWIW: Peering thru the massive CO Database Archive at Livermore Labs has located more than one CO-style spelling for “Sweater.” You get Sweatahs, Sweatuews, Sweateuh, and Sweatews. And there may be more.]

This glaring discrepancy requires resolution. So, let’s have a poll! First, the Sweatuews! (The default spelling ’til we get poll results.) Why do this? We got this email from the staff at The Zip Yard in Winton, Bournemouth, UK.

“I work in a clothing alteration store, and we had a strange request last week! These chickens came from a battery farm, and had sadly lost some of their feathers.”


“The cold and wet British weather is on the way, so we were asked to make some jackets to keep them warm!”


“But we couldn’t just make them plain boring ones, oh no.”
