Let’s Go to the Hop!

There’s a big hop going on in the gymnasium, but it’s not what you think. It’s highlights from this year’s Danish Rabbit Show Jumping Competition, in which rabbit owners all over Denmark vie to see who can make the best “chik, chik, chik” noises — oh, and also get their rabbits to jump over stuff.

I have just one word for you, Gwyn R.: Boiinnnggg!

Behold the tiniest of orange squirmy action!

Behold the awesome scale of kitten-to-hand!

Sender Inner Katey C. says: “His name is GARY (what a great cat name!) and he’s being fostered by Sue of Pitter Pats of Baby Cats.

We Haven’t Painted Them Yet

Look what Esther B. spotted: “This is the new litter of Sadie the Dalmatian. She birthed eight puppies, six boys and two girls. The proud mommies, Kathy and Jamie, are very happy to have these adorable puppies in their home. And yes, a boy and girl will be named Pongo and Perdita.”

From The Cute Farmer’s Almanac

As the days get shorter, and the carefree days of summer yield to earnest fall, it’s time to put up a supply of kittens to see you through the cold winter months ahead. When selecting a storage jar for your kitties, make sure it’s not too small.

Vintage Overboard

“Hey, guys? Could somebody throw me one of those — oh, what are they called? — those rescuing things? Oh, you know, the round things with the hole. Um, it’s named just like the candy? Totally drawing a blank here; it’s not Necco Wafers, I know that… Now I’ve got the word preserver stuck in my head, so it must be that candy with lots of preservatives… Man, it’s right on the tip of my tongue…”
