What’s On The Schedule Today, Meepo?

Well…I’m gonna wake up.


Play with my toy. That’s about it. Couple of naps, some chow too probably. I dunno. Will play it by ear.

“Here is my kitty Meepo hanging out in Schrödinger’s (one of my other cats; black and fluffy and named while living with physicists) crate. Also, Meepo doing her best back bend. Thanks for taking a look at my sweet kitties! I hope they bring a smile to your face as they always do to mine.” -Johnnie L.


The Adventures Of Puddles

“Long-time reader, first-time submitter. I would love to introduce you to Puddles, my 4 month old Shorkie. He enjoys walks, barking, smelling, farting and being a puppy! I would love to see him on your site!” -Missy L.









Little Orphan Eggie

In over 40 years of rescuing our feathered friends around the world, this was one of the most anticipated arrivals of all for International Bird Rescue. A severely injured mama Mallard was brought in to their San Francisco Bay Wildlife Hospital and found to have a single egg. Mama could not be saved but the veterinary staff were able to save her one egg. 26 days later, after waiting and wondering, a perfect mallard duckling hatched!

Read the entire orphaned duckling’s awesome story at International Bird Rescue. “Hey there, thought I’d send our latest Cute Overload submission! This Mallard Duckling in hot pursuit of a dragonfly is by Kim Taylor, our recent Photographers in Focus honoree (who gives permission for the photo to be used.)” -Andrew H.

Today Ees National Hug Your Cat Day!

Your mission, should you decide to accept it- is to find a cat. Then hug it. (Any size cat/kitteh will do.) Alternatively, a massage will also work nicely. This has been a Public Service Announcement from Cute Overload.

Otter You Up 2, 3, 4?

May 9, Oakland Zoo, CA. Ginger the River Otter gave birth to three baby boy otters.

They are named Kohana (Sioux for swift),

Hinto (Dakota for blue)

and Shilah (Navajo for brother).

Not sure how Ginger got her name, but she might be named after Ginger Rogers.

This is Ginger’s third litter.

In 2011 Ginger gave birth to a boy and girl, Tallulah and Ahanu. Ginger had a second litter in 2012.

Come on in! The otter’s great!

Oddball in the Corner Pocket

Chalk it up to a stroke of genius: When this snookered cat needs a break, he comes in right on cue and runs the whole table — er, I mean living room.
