There Otter Be A Law Against Being This Cute

Sea World may be famous for its killer whales, but two new arrivals may have guests saying "Shamwho?"  The San Diego park welcomed two Asian small-clawed river otter pups, born Feb. 7 to first-time parents Leo and Giselle.  A new otter/sea lion show debuts next month.

( Hmmph. Mom always liked HIM best. )

Carbo Load!

This is one ham’s story. Of a serious carbo loading.

First, please note, before the pasta gorging, cheeks are at somewhat "normal’ size.

Then the delicious lip smacking and paw wringing begins!

MLORRRP! Delectabuhls!

[Inhaling of entire spaghetti strands]

Post gorge: cheek pouches at maximum capass.

THIS JUST IN: Hero Parrot Saves Choking Girl!

Capt037773325de745d0b19e56f7b32ee_2According to Yahoo News, the parrot pictured at the left saved the ‘tocks of a choking girl by squawking: "Mama Baby! Mama Baby!" and flapping his wings until the babysitter returned to the room and gave the girl The Heimlich.

Awesome!

According to the report: "This undated image from video released by CBS4Denver, shows Willie, a Quaker parrot in Denver, Colo., whose cries of alarm alerted his owner when a little girl choked on her breakfast. Willie has been has been given the local Red Cross chapter’s Animal Lifesaver Award."

In his honor are a couple more cute parrot shots. Above, a McBeakersons named Ivan, and below, two puffballs.

OK OK One last Winston-san for Caturday

In our final episode, we find Winston-san, in front of food again, chomping away. But this time, he looks SO MUCH LIKE WILFORD BRIMLEY it’s mesmerizing. Take a bow, Winston-san.

Houston, You Have No Problems Whatsoever…

… because your Houston Zoo has the world’s cutest animal (says so, right there on their Internets), making his grand entrance this weekend!  His name’s Toby, a red panda, and he’s probably putting the finishing touches on his cute moves even now.

First, we start with the slightly vacant-eyed goofy grin…

Daaawwww... and you will hug me and pet me and squeeze me and hug me...

… with a smooth segue into the pensive, thoughtful expression…

I am intrigued by your proposal.  Speak more of this thing you call 'Amway.'

… and wrapping up with the yummy-smacky feed-me face!

Say, you wouldn't happen to have any spare bamboo, would you?
