Dear Diary…My Food Dish Is Now Only Half Full….

What happens when all hope is lost? You put a video on YouTube and plan the hoomin’s downfall hope for the best.

“You are going to love this! This man has a direct line to the feline mind. Thank you for making my day BETTER on a steady basis.” -Cuteporter Shari E.

Undercover With Monkey Pants

Bring me the food, Carol. If you place any value on this comforter, you’ll do as I say.

Carol B. says, “Monkey Pants demonstrating Rule #26 – he burrows under the blankets. Sometimes during the day I can’t find him until I investigate the lumps under the comforter. I sent my camera in periscope style and got these undercover shots.”

An Afternoon At Gelinas Farm

Hay.

“I took these photos of my horse Dancer getting to know his new buddy Beau. Just like little kids, they were all friendly one minute, and then fighting the next. Dancer looks like he’s kissing Beau goodbye to head off to work. Dancer and Beau live at Gelinas Farm in Pembroke, NH.”

Sigh

Life is good.

More Ozzy The Maniac Weasel Action!

He’s back! This guy may be one of the craziest little wild men ever to grace the pages of CO. Imagine what would happen if he stuck his little schnozzle-nozzle nose in a can of Red Bull.

Videos 1 and 2 from Frisco68. Video 3 from Laggy Creations, who remarked on the YouTube page, “We were watching YouTube videos on our PS3, and our cat Merlin became interested. This was not good for our TV.”

PSSST! Hey …

Hey, buddy. Yeah you. C’mere. Wanna buy a book? My name’s Pippin; purveyor of never-read books. Previous owner only used for impressing company.

I am also an honest used twist-tie dealer and lint ball merchant, and an “adorable ball of spaz”.

Come back! I’ll throw in a twist-tie for free!

“My name is Katrina, and I am a long-time fan of cuteoverload. My boyfriend, Alex, and I adopted an adorable ball of spaz named Pippin a few months ago from the Washington Animal Rescue League. He just had his 1st birthday a couple weeks ago and already has had an eventful life, including illness, broken bones, multiple homes, and 2 name changes. At 6 months old, while being hospitalized for a moderate URI, Pippin (then Champ) fell out of his cage and broke his left hind leg. His owner couldn’t or wouldn’t give the extra care he needed, so the little guy stayed at the hospital until the good people at the Washington Animal Rescue League took him in. Alex saw his picture on their website a Christmas, and we just knew, you know? We didn’t learn about Pippin’s (then Zap) medical history until we filled out an application to adopt him, but he’s so active you would never be able to tell his leg was ever broken! We chose the name Pippin after the character from Lord of the Rings, which is quite fitting- he gets into EVERYTHING. Including the bookcase. Especially the bookcase. Alex takes awesome photos and has managed to get a few shots of Pippin (in between energetic running spurts of kitten-crazy).” Check them out on Alex’s flickr.

SOS: Save Our Sloths!

GHXiP5YCuteporter Becky C. fills us in: “I work at the Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica and we desperately need help in order to continue our work rescuing sloths. We’ve recently launched the Save Our Sloths campaign to try and raise enough funds to return rescued baby sloths to the wild. There is lots more information on our campaign page!” (Becky also supplied these photos late last night. Awesome.)
