The Good Seal-Keeping House

ABC (Australia) News brings us the story of an unusual home intruder: a baby fur seal, who wandered around a New Zealand seaside neighborhood before crashing on Annette Swoffer’s couch. The pup slept peacefully while Swoffer called authorities to take the visitor back home. Story, more pics here.

Depression Can Suck It

Cuteologist Barbara B. writes: “I just wanted to say thank you to all of you that put the calendar together. I was really bummed out last year when I was lamely wandering through my grocery store, shuffling toward some overpriced chocolate in ratty sweatpants. Through the fog of depression I picked up the 2011 Cute Overload calendar and instantly felt better.”

“I brought it home and scribbled down a few birthdays coming up and my roommates and I planned a few parties, the calender made us laugh and gave me things to look forward to. Any day I just wanted to go back to bed and give up, I’d check the calender and laugh at the cute animals.”

She continued; “As months passed the pictures got cut out and put into letters to my best friend Ashley. She’s in peace corps in Zambia. After we left college we both explored new areas and she too was homesick and alone in a new place (and fighting malaria, dysentery, etc). One of the few bright spots for Ash are letters and the cuteoverload pictures and captions are exactly her style of humor.”

“Looking back at 2011, that calendar kept me organized and upbeat. You really dont know how much it helped. I’m sure sometimes you guys feel like your job is a tad silly, but truly you’re doing a valuable service. Thanks and I can’t wait for the new year to start so I can put up my new 2012 Cute Overload calendar.”

PS I’m doing really awesome now. Depression can suck it!”

Let’s play: Name Those ‘Tocks

No two pairs of ‘tocks are alike (wait, wha!?) And this pair is no exception.


What type of animal has these ‘tocks!?

For the answer, keep on scrollin’!

Another C.O. Good Deed Done!

Here’s one of those life-affirming moments that makes you happy to be alive, and it happened right here: A reader named Lermin K. tells us that her cat Cashmere, quite by accident, stumbled across a photo of her long-lost cousin here on Cute Overload. We’re told that the two already plan to meet for dinner later this week.
