This Just In: Moose on the Loose

What a rotten way to start your life: Separated from your mom, chased by wild dogs, a state trooper thinks you’d be better off dead, and worst of all, you gotta move to Wisconsin.  But thanks to some kind Alaskans, it’ll be a happy ending all the same for this moose calf. Full story and more pics at the Los Angeles Times.

Harrumph Day

Caturday? HAH!! Saturday is the new Wednesday!  It’s like “Hump Day”, only different.  Remember, you heard it here first on Cute Overload — the internet’s premier cutting-edge authority on what day it isn’t.  And it certainly isn’t September 18, 2008.

In the remote plains of Wazoolooland, we come upon an all-too-familiar scene: A fierce camel locked in mortal combat with the small but wily plastic bucket.

Ah, we meet again, my old nemesis ...

Saracen pig! Roman cow! Take THIS! And THIS!

For the bucket, its only chance is to raise its defenses and hope his adversary tires …

... there's the kick, aaaannnd -- GOOOOOOAAAL!!!

Yeah, I'd like to see that lame-o walrus pull this off.

Alas, even the bucket’s tough protective shell is no match for the camel’s ruthless onslaught …

No, we're not making a new "nomming" tag.  Please stop asking.

… and with one final bite, the struggle is over.

FOR GREAT JUSTICE!! ***CHOMP***

Victorious, the mighty camel cries out his call of triumph.

THIS ... IS ... SPARTAAAAAAA!
We’ll be back with more of “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom” after these messages.

They sell bucket insurance, by the way.  I'm just saying.

Yes, sir, Gelosia … that’s your “Baby.” ( More photos here )

Caturday Schmaturday

Peeps, I am sooooo over the whole “caturday” deal. Puhlease. What we need is a nice shiny SATURDAY MARSUPIAL SNOUT. From two-thousand-seven!

Well-intentioned Rebecca M. assures moi that Opossums are PERFECTLY wonderful and not the slightest bit evil, and sends this photo as proof.

Rebecca M. claims:

-They RULE in the Moist Nosicle category.
-They have a thumb without a nail on their back feet.
-They have elaborate whiskers.
-Their ears are pink when they’re babies and turn black as they grow up.
-They CARRY LEAVES CURLED UP IN THEIR TAILS – Come ON!
-And let’s not forget they carry their babies in a pouch – North America’s only marsupial

Hmmm. I’m thinking. I’m thinking… LET ME THINK! [shifty eyes]

From black panthers and lions
You are named for jam.

But they don’t always make sense,

Friday Question of the Day: Who does this look like?!

So, Who’s Using the Wall, Again?

Remember our little workout cutie from the other day, and how some of you were all like “Hah!  The dog’s leaning against the wall!”  Well, check it, peeps: Wall-free aerobic awesomeness, and yes, more Beatles music.

Happy Fursday!

“This lovely animal on the photos show the Newfoundland Leilah, the lady dog of my parents,” writes sender-inner Nahal A.  “She got sleepy in the garden, but luckily she had her Molly with her…”  Probably got tired from hauling all that fur!

Clover ‘Coon

Here is the back story. Miss. McCoonersons here fell out of a tree. Attempts to return her to Mom were unsuccessful.

On The Hunt

Now at a wildlife rehab center, she gets wonderful care and will be released back into the wild. [Head tilt]
