And You’ll Need to Crank It to “Full Kitten” When Bill O’Reilly’s On

At last, something to make watching cable news bearable: “Happy Time” cuteness-in-picture.  Caution: May not be effective against Jim Cramer or Glenn Beck.

Wow, this is even better than Relax-O-Vision, Dan Z.

Happy Surrogate Male Guardian’s Day

Traditionally in June, we honor male parents, guardians and caregivers with a special awareness day to celebrate the pro-active, nurturing support they provide.

Father’s Day salute to the Seahorse

Let’s all give it up for the male seahorse. He’s the only species on the planet in which the male carries the babies.

Oh yeah, AND he can get knocked up again within 24 hours of giving birf. Schweet.

Some of you are already saying “NOOOOOOOO”

Peeps, you got your comment controversies, y’know, sometimes it seems like every other post. Then there’s your capital-C Commentroversy, at which point you’ve pretty much seen it all.

THEN, along comes Buddy. And this hepcat was never emo. :lol:

Hefty kitteh “Buddy” is a [ahem] a couch straddler and paw dangler.
The internet is just weird.  Fact of life.
The sender-inner’s sister was kind enough to have a local artist CAPTURE the REDONKULOUSNESS by making a miniature version of “Buddy” too. Hee!

Kitty Green Screen Dream Challenge!

Today on “Hollywood Movie Magic” we’ll use green-screen special effects to create an amazing dream sequence!  First, we film this kitty in front of a green screen, then we turn to our Cute Overload commenters, who write her into a dazzling dream in which anything can happen!

So how about it, special-effects wizards?  What’s this kitty dreaming?
