Thanks for finally making a call, Sarah L. (who’s never met a Vervet monkeh she didn’t like) *As of press time, ‘Nom-vember was barely squeaking by at 49%, People!

Don’t believe me?  Did you ever see an animal called a “Gluttony”?  An “Envy”?  (ooh, a little lower, thank you)  A “Gives Away Movie Endings”?  I rest my case.

It’s Laundry Day!

Yes folks, here at Cute Overload, we like to keep Teh Qte clean and fresh.  So today, we’re taking a load of puppies down to the laundromat…

Catnap on a Map? Oh, Snap!

Mountain View, CA — Google today announced an update to its Google Maps application.  The popular mapping tool, which already highlights areas of high traffic density, will also display which streets have been overrun by giant kitties.

We Need to Talk

Listen, we both know this hasn’t been working for a while. We’ve been drifting apart for some time, and well…there’s someone else. You can’t be surprised. I mean, what did you expect? He gives me everything you wouldn’t – namely, table scraps.

It's not you, it's me...OK, it's you.

The Nosevember lobby is coming on STRONG

The votes are neck and neck in the Nose-vember v. Nom-vember Poll. We haven’t seen chaos like this since the raging debate on “Muzzlepuff” versus “Muzzle-powsche”  in late ’07. The Muzzlepowsches won. Please cast your vote, because every stoat counts.

Do not be swayed by the aggressive, nosey members of the Nosevember lobby:

Nose-vember or Nom-vember? I can’t decide!

WE MUST CHOOSE!

First there’s Nose-vember, our traditional homage to the month of schnozzles:

But then Sender-Inner Ann W. challenged us to consider “Nom-vember!” In light of recent nom-tastic posts, I am tempted to try this NEW DIRECTION!
