Pup Confessional

[Pup speaking to audience] Listen, this kid has GOT to go.

I’ve been babysitting for hours and he still can’t fetch or ANYTHING.

He’s obviously… [holds up paw in whispering motion] perfectly useless.


Sender-Inner Tom, I think you might wanna heed this advice or teach the baby to fetch—one or the other…

I got yer ‘Tocktober RIGHT HERE


[Splays haunches on floor]


Stacia F.—what can I say, you’re right, it’s that time of year, and ‘tocks are EVERYWHERE.

Caturday Night Night

It’s been a loooong Caturday, and it’s time for your lullaby.

Sender-Inner Layla says this kitteh is so cute, she slapped herself watching the video. That’s all I needed to know. Ahn.

That IS an anerable tongue, you’re right, Layla [slapping self sound].

Sugar Glider Gardening Tip

Hi, Green Thumb Glider here with your Sugar Glider Gardening Tip!

To grow beautiful Gladiolus flowers that attract butterflies, hummingbirds and um, Sugar Gliders, you’ll need a spot with full sun and good drainage. They’ll hide unsightly walls! They grow from 6 to 9 feet. Plant seedlings 10 inches apart. That’s it!

Hmmm, [grasps blossom with tiny hand] This flower is progressing nicely! [Snorts pollen]

I know we’re a few days into ‘Tocktober already, but we’ve finally got a good specimen for you. In fact, Sender-Inner Esther L. points out this photo would be EXCELLENT to show again as we transition into Nosevember. I’ll remember that.


Another San Diego Zoo gem—thanks, Esther L.

More Caturday indulgences [Shaking head in disgust]


Cats always think they have some kin dof special privledges just because it’s Caturday.

They think they can sleep in the dryer, eat at the dinner table, indulge in boxes—the list goes on.

When are the hamsters of this world going to rise up and say "Enough already" in their squeaky hamster voices!?


Sender-Inner Marieke and Poema the kitteh, I don’t know if we’ll ever turn this around.

Aie, Chihuahua!


Sender-Inner Georgia S., what do you think?!

Demanding, relentless kittens!

OMG, HOLD YOUR HORSES!!! Kitten Chow is almost ready.
