The Cornell Labs Gang Is BACK

Last month, we told you about the “singing” Owls featured on the Cornell University Labs webcam. Now, they’re back and they brought a little (unwelcome) friend with them.

What? No Biscotti?

[If I can’t get better service here, I’ll just go ELSEWHERE for my evening meelk. Harumph!]

“Puggles, And Your Lack Thereof”

image2[*Note: In the interests of fairness/equal time/mwah mwah mwah, we are printing Ann Y.’s email to Cute Overload verbatim. -Ed.]

“I’ve been monitoring your site for a couple of years now, and noticed a distinct lack of puggles (part beagle, part pug). Many pugs, but no puggles. Not one. Please remedy this situation immediately. This is my puggle, Miss Abigail. She makes me smile every day.”

Aaron’s Animals: Pet Peeves

Aaron is the Hoomin. Michael is the Cat. They have managed to achieve a sort of détente as far as their living arrangements go. But of course, this peaceful co-existance could crumble at any time. I mean, we’re talking CATS here.

(Tastefully Offensive.)

Toesday 2: Handbag

unnamed (2)“Thank you so much for featuring Mister Tibbs on C.O. last week. He is just precious. I wanted to also share this picture of my Rescue Chinchilla Handbag who you have featured before. I hold him in my palm and then tell him to grab his toes, and this is what he does. He was adopted five years ago from the San Diego Humane Society. He’s just too cute not to share with C.O. who appreciates all great cuteness.” -Annie O.

“Hey Honey? Did You Sweep The Floor Like I Asked?”

“Uh, no…the game is on. I asked Mel to do it- she’s gonna need a snack for it, too.]

We’re coming up on the TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY of Cute Overload! You might recall this Little Dude from way back when: Ground Zero. Post #1! September 26, 2005!


Send in your favorite posts from the last ten years! (Just email us a URL with the specific post.) Then on September 26th, we’ll run ’em all day long! The Best Of The Best, chosen by You, our Best Peeps!


Definite Speakers UP For THIS One

And if your speakers are broken, run right out and buy a new pair. (I have a great pair from Bose I can recommend to you FWIW.) Why rush right out? ‘Cause you’re gonna need ’em for THIS little guy! “I can’t stop watching this video of an America Woodcock using its whole body to make little “weaan” noises. Do we have a Rule Of Cuteness for Cute Noises? Squeaking is Cute? If you make Cute noises, that’s Cute?” [*Note: Must consider this. BTW, a Woodcock is also known as a Timberdoodle. -Ed.]

P.S. “Thank you for bring so much Cute into my life every day.”
