Theo Later, Alligator

After 4 years of delighting us with hilarious interjected quips, wrangling redonkulous Glossary terminology, shouting ‘YAY‘ at just the right moment, tagging posts with oh-so-helpful tags like “Do the Funky Fennec“, diligently tending to our commenting audience with the precision of a Japanese Bonsai Gardener, and writing posts about his favorite Marmalade kittehsencores, and  Reality Casual Fridays, Theo will be leaving his fluffy post at Cute Overload to tackle a new job in Intelligence Analysis, in the United States Army. His last day is April 26th.

No we’re not kidding—we couldn’t think of a more different job either—what will his new role be?

Will Theo be saluting his superiors with “Okey Dokes, Then! (SIR!)”? Will he be appropriating kittens for Top Secret Snuggling? Will his Basic Training include ADVANCED BLEENING? Specialist Teho will have to report back and tell us when he gets there, as an embedded Army Cuteporter.

Theo joined the C.O. team in early 2006. He started as a fan of the site but soon became the perfect fit on our team. We can’t imagine Cute Overload without him and his gynormous contribution to this site. With his snarkiness set on stun, Theo helped make Cute Overload a place we all love to come back to. So Peeps, please join me in thanks, before he leaves to salute his new officers, let’s salute him! FOUR MORE YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS!oops, wishful thinking.

THANK YOU, THEO. Best wishes for a fulfilling, safe new job. We will miss you!

All our love, support and admiration,

Meg and the Cute Overload team

The Adequate Escape

By 0600 hours, we were ready. It was agreed that Hurwitz and O’Malley would stage a scuffle during breakfast, to distract the guards and give us time to smuggle spoons under our uniforms. We then met at the east fence, where patrols were lightest. The resistance would have a stolen civilian vehicle waiting for us.

“This is Riley,” says Carrie B. “He was helping me garden. Kind of.”

I’m just Warren C. doin’ the pee-pee dance here…

Look, there’s no one else around. If you take me to the grassy knoll, you know I’ll be the only shooter!

You put the right paw in… Stacey T-K.

Why Pixar’s Live Action “RatCatouille” Never Came to Be

Remi’s every pull and push felt like delicate Swedish massage to Carl, and he fell deeper and deeper into a blissful, purr-filled sleep:

Dammit, feline! I will not go back to playing Templeton in Tarrytown’s Community Theater!

Continuing our theme of animals being driven slowly insane by technology, let’s visit with Harvey, who now thinks that people live in tiny little boxes.

Sunday Wrap-Up: MeMe the Internet meme

The most popular post of the week was checking in on MeMe, the Japanese* kitten star with his own books, DVDs, shirts, pillows, mugs, you name it! Apparently, MeMe is an Exotic Shorthair [Smooshicus Facicus] and has managed to entrance beellions of peoples.

*Natch. Oh, and more pics, like MeMe bath time here.

Heeeeey Boo-Boo! Am I doing this Pic-a-nic Basket Pose right?

This lil’ Horse Designed By Committee at the Milwaukee County Zoo is named “Furlow”. He likes to “romp in the outdoor yard, and usually tires himself out enough that he has to lay down and rest—often times alongside his dad.”
