This Is My “No, I DIDN’T Like That” Look, OK?

We think we’re doing them a favor by giving them a bath, with all sorts of warm soapy water, baby talk, (Now who’s the snookums wookums? YOU are), gently toweling them off, and such.

This is a crucial error on our part. The eventual payback is looming, and either we’re gonna get it, or the curtains will.

[Yes, this has the “Impending Doom” tag. -Ed.]

Ukraine Kittehs Really Knock Us Out

Ever thrown a party only to have an unwanted guest mess things up? Cuteporter Valerie R. tells us, “My daughter staged a surprise tea party for my 3 year old granddaughter, whose best friend is Sheepy, (at right in the photo) the one in the sweater.”

Kiska and the frog
“But it was crashed by a hooligan named Kiska, who is a little short on table manners.”

Kiska and the frog 2
“The photo credits go to Kristina J., snapped in Kiev, Ukraine, where she and her husband teach music in a private English school. Kiska was a street kitten (thus the bad manners) before she was rescued by my daughter. Now she leads a life of ease, but still feels the compulsion to steal food sometimes.”

THIS JUST IN: Kitten In Crocheted Mushroom Costume

Clipboard01 People, this one was emailed in from Moo sunning lazily on the beach in Hawaii (Must. be. nice.) The subject line said: “Aieeeeeee!”

Well, that’s good enough for me.

What we have here is a rescued kitteh wearing a Crocheted Mushroom Costume. The kitteh’s name is Wasabi-Chan- and she was rescued from an attacking crow! The complete story is here– use Google Chrome to get the translation.

OMGPONIES!!!!1!1!1111!!!!!1!!! [Wearing Sweaters]

Cuteporter Susan L. first sent this one in. You’re not gonna believe it.

She writes, “Check out the video for some extreme close-up, ponies-in-knitwear action. Their names, apparently, are Fivla of Finnister and Millhouse Vitamin. You can’t make this stuff up.”

The Daily Mail says all this REDONK is to promote The Year Of Natural Scotland.

Then we got another email on these horsehs from Steph M. “These are my friend Frances Taylor’s Shetland ponies, Fivla (aka Whiffy) in the lovely red Fair Isle sweater and Vitamin in the tan. You should also check out Frances’ funny blog, which is full of adorable ponies (although usually not in sweaters). She is awesome and a fantastic photographer!!!”

Joanne V: “These are the loves of my life Hamlet (the fawn pug on the left) and Ignatz (the black pug on the right). This is their first Christmas picture together from a few years back. I think Hamlet looks like a Dead End Kid in his over-sized sweater, but it’s so adorable how he’s giving Ignatz Christmas Kissies! Pick us, Maxie, pick us!!!!!” [Done. -Ed]

Pansywreath
Elaine L. sent these in, with the explanation: “Pansy the Boxer just had some (minor, planned) surgery and has been rocking the inflatable donut to keep her chewer away from her stitches. We thought we’d try something a little more festive. Pansy was not amused.”

Andrea V: “This is one of our four cats. His name is Maybe. He was lucky enough to be featured on CuteOverload a few years back as a wee kitten licking Dr. Phil – one of our other cats. There was quite the thread mostly bashing us for naming our cat Dr. Phil! Hilarious.”

butters
Danielle L.: “I am sending you a picture of my French/English bulldog mix, Butters. We decided to take family Christmas pictures this year. He tends to be over-excited for these festivities.” [We can tell. -Ed]

Flynn the Hedgehog

P1130050

Jenn S.: “This is Flynn The Hedgehog and Betty The Beaver, who live at the OC Zoo. They are dressed up in holiday finery. The OC Zoo is operated by OC Parks in Orange County, CA, and they mainly have critters who were abandoned, confiscated, or who could otherwise not live on their own in the wild. It’s like an entire zoo of ResQte! The wonderful folks at the OC Zoo take some of the littler guys out into the public to teach kids and other groups about wildlife. It is a wonderful facility, and of course the staff get to play with these cuties all day.” [What? Where do I sign up? -Ed]
