Merry Christmas from Mr. Claws

Merry Christmas Everyone! [grabs pom pom and takes kitten for a ride on the floor]

Here’s to a wonderful day of family, gifts, food and… kittens. What was the best gift you got or gave today? Tell us in the comments.

Papai Noel chegou cedo este ano [Santa Claws arrived early this year] by Jim S.

Reindeer Understudies

“Yep, that’s us. If one of the reindeer sprains a fetlock and can’t fly, that’s when we move in. Doesn’t happen often, though;  last time I went up was in ’73, and Ralph here doubles for Blitzen at shopping center openings.  That’s about it.”

Who knew Santa was so prepared, Paige?

Merry Marmoset

In the great Cute Overload Christmas Tradition, it’s time for your Annual Marmoset Ear Nom™. Simply wrestle a pygmy Marmoset to the ground and perform a soft-kronche on their ear nubules.

Even if they tilt their heads to the side, they won’t be able to shield their ears forever:

Go on, your furry little morsels await!

Winston attempts to eat snow

But will his FLAT LIL’ FACE LET HIM!? Watch and find out.

Merry Christmas Rich (see more Weeen-stons over at Four Four!)

To Infinity… and Beyond!

The tiny nation of Hamstervania officially announced its space program today.  In this video footage smuggled from the space training center, astronauts simulate the effect of sustained G-forces.

ENCORE: Barkin’ & Quackin’ Around the Tree

And now, a couple o’ classics in the ultra-short tradition of Cute Overload holiday posts (and by this I mean they’re from last year)…

Who’s that flappin’ down the chimney? Who’s that tappin’ at the tree?
It’s the elf with the bill, and he won’t stop until every boy and girl is giddy with glee.

Every Christmas time he’s at it again, a sack full of toys and an IQ of ten,
You might get meat or you might get a doll, ’cause he’s got no clue who you are at all.

So open those presents and try your luck; it could be wood or it could be a truck,
Will Christmas be merry or will it suck? You never can tell with Santa Duck!

Have a possibly Merry Christmas, Karen K.

Pompon is BACK!! :) by the always-fabulous pyza*.

Next On “Dr. Drew’s Kleptos”…

Meet Frankie. Obsessive-compulsive hoarder. Steals items that fuel his love for “The Nutcracker” and dental hygiene.

We just feel bad for that poor ballerina out there who’s tippy-toeing around with hairy legs and bad teeth.

So that’s where all of my pens went. I suspect he has a few of my socks as well, Paige P.

At Last, a Moment to Myself

“Whew!  I cannot believe I held it together this year.  Got all the Christmas cards mailed, shuttled three sets of relatives from airports to hotels, and got all the presents wrapped and under the tree at the last minute.

“Well, at least Junior’s decided to do me a favor and let me sleep in on Christmas morning…”

This … Is … PHOTOBOMB!

Artsy-Fartsy Baby Bongo Born at Busch Gardens

The other animals thought he was crazy when he started painting his own body. But we just call him Keith Haring.

And here’s the real story: Busch Gardens welcomed a baby bongo to the park Sept. 13. Bongo are native to the rainforests of Africa. Busch Gardens cares for the endangered Eastern Mountain subspecies of bongo.
