We’re ringing in the new year…

[Swishy swish, clinky clink, chatter chatter, cheer]

Betty’s swinging from the chandelier!

And Marv’s making pointless observations to anyone sitting near.

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…

Happy New Year!

Happy New Lemur, Patty S.

Cute or Sad: No Depth Percept-shons

Aghnnnn! [Head tilt] Poor baby tortoise Kevin just hasn’t gotten the hang of it yet!

Sender-Inner Haley L. says: “Forgive the camera shaking, I was laughing too hard.”

Got a Picture Without so Much Cat in it?

We’ve got dog, box and cat,

Dog, rug and cat,

Dog, pillow and cat,

…or Lobster Thermidor a Crevette with a mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and CAT!

Could you do the dog, pillow and cat without the cat?

I Got Yer Happy Birthday Right Here

When presented with a singing birthday card, this cat responds the way we all wish we could. (We’re still looking for the follow-up video, in which the cat finds the greeting card factory and burns it to the ground.)

Rocket Bun, Ready for Takeoff

We’re here at Yuk-Yuk Flats for the test launch of the experimental X-27 ½ rocket bun. I can see the test pilot, Felix “Crater” Farnsworth, has strapped himself aboard, and once the rocket fuel is digested, we should be “go” for launch.

Michelle P. says: “Here’s a photo of Howl (cat) and Salvador (rabbit) (photo shot and animals snuggled by Tracy T.). They seem like good friends but you know what they say about keeping enemies closer…”

The Sloths… need… your… help.

Judy Arroyo from the Costa Rica Sloth Sanctuary says: “Over twenty years ago a small sloth was brought to my door. I cupped the tiny animal in my hands and knew I had to do something…”

Baby sloth, Costa Rica
“…This baby sloth was dying of starvation. Her mother was most likely dead and I was faced with a huge challenge. At the time, little was known about sloths, much less baby sloths. I was warned that I should let the baby go, that I would not be able to feed her, that I would only prolonging the inevitable.”

I looked down at her little face and knew that I would do anything in my power to save this tiny sloth. Buttercup had a few difficult months. Today she holds the record of being the sloth to live the longest time in captivity and she reigns supreme over our veranda at the Sloth Sanctuary.”

I hope I don’t get sick. I might get a productive cough. And being productive is bad for my reputashons.
