“Wet Nose Wednesday”

That was the title of the email Carol sent to us- now, we’ve already got “Wombat Wednesday” booked- but maybe we can toss in a Wet Nose on Wednesdays- if someone sends us one, of course. After all—remember Rule of Cuteness #13: “Juicy” Eyes And Noses Are Cute. This is Belle, BTW.

We think.



Saturday Night Wombats!

C.O. features all sorts of Cute..everything from your basic Kitteh or Puppeh to Quokkas, Wombats, Dancing Spiders, you name it.

We also have Daily Features unless we forget to run them too! Click on each day name for a comprehensive list of those posts. If we tagged them correctly, of course.

Bunday: We like Big Buns and we cannot lie.


Bunday Morning Comix: The comics you knew as a kid growing up. Sort of. (Image by Scott Metzger as seen on FB.)

Under the moonlight..the stherious moonlight!


ResQte Of The Week: Always on Thursdays, though we’ve been known to pop these in at anytime, too. The Furrtographer took these terrific shots at Animal Care & Control in San Francisco. (Names in the hovers; that’s Sparks in the first one, feeling kinda GIFy.)




Friday Haiku: When we roll out the weekly Zen.


Climbing up the wall
Peering into the window
Just plain curious

“This little chap flew into our conservatory and seemed a little shy,” says Helen W.

Ferret Friday: Same as Wombat Wednesday, a semi-regular event. Who doesn’t love some Ferret Action?



Flashback Friday: Vintage shots from around the Intertubes. Thank Heavens for Shorpy. This one is simply called “Soldier and cat, 1940.”

[‘SCUSE me, sir- um, before you blast whoever you’re gonna blast- it’s 17:00- how about my chow?]

Soldier and cat, 1940, [499x312] - Imgur

TGIF: Every Friday afternoon at 5pm PT- a new GIF! Totally free!


Caturday: The name says it all. Lotsa cats.

[I’m ready for ya! Dive on in under the covers and Let The Snorgling Begin! And don’t forget my tummeh.]


“Never Know What You’ll Find In The Cemetery..”

…writes Sharon L. Well, hmmm. Come to think of it, you usually DO know what you’ll find in a cemetery.


Anyway, she goes on to add, “This little guy is only about a week old and was seen in the Allegheny Cemetery here in Pittsburgh. The lashes!! The eyes!! So tiny. Please remind people that a fawn all alone more than likely isn’t abandoned. Leave it alone. Momma leaves them in a safe place and comes back to nurse. It’s fawn season!!!”

[*Note: People, we have a BIG Wombat Wednesday cued up for you. Kodie went on his first date! #REDONK. PLUS: Bebeh (REDACTED) Wearing (REDACTED)! And (hopefully)…a surprise from Japan. Waiting on the video. One word: Owls. -Ed.]

Who Wants Some Belleh Rubs, Eh?

Welcome to Wombat Wednesday!

To kick things off, how about these two little maniacs, Jojo and DJ, goin’ nuts at the Wild About Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Victoria, Australia! Video spotted on T.O.


Our exclusive One on One Interview with Patrick, Australia’s #1 Wombat- is next.

People, Welcome To Our Latest Feature!

(Sing like Susanna Hoffs: “♬ Just another Wombat Wednesday…♫

We ran this post on Saturday night, and speculated that perhaps “Wombat Wednesday” would be a good feature. People wrote in the comments that WW would be a fine concept! OK, twist our arm. Make it SO, Number One! (Photo from Flickr.)

(P.S. If you haz any Wombat Photos please send them to us. We don’t have a huge backlog of those. Thank you.)

Interview With BUB

Time for another chapter in our “Interview With” series- you might remember earlier interviews with Patrick The Wombat and even Mary Lee The Shark. Now following Tuesday’s Trading Card, we turn our attention to one of the true Giants of the Internet- even tho she’s just a tad on the Tiny side.

Please welcome the one and only BUB to Cute Overload.

BUB, thanks for taking the time to talk with us. Now, how does it feel to be an Internet Cat Star?

Hello. It’s me, BUB. I’m glad to be here, talking with you. I can’t say that I’m sure what the “Internet Cat Star” is. As a well-traveled space cat, I know a lot of stars. Literally millions of them… but I’ve never heard of the “Internet Cat Star”.

Do you feel any competition with guys like Grumpy Cat and Maru?

Competition is not a term I’m familiar with. These are both great cats, I certainly am aware of their existence, and I respect their talents.

Your name is BUB, but you’re actually a female. How’d that happen?

This is true, my name is BUB. I was not aware of any correlation between my name and my gender so I’m a bit confused by your question, Brinke. In fact, with a name like Brinke, I have no idea if you’re a female or a male! [*Note: Touché. Male. -Ed.]

You live in Indiana. Guess you’re a hoops fan, right?

No, I don’t wear earrings.

Tell us about your new book with Norbert.

I have to say that I’m really proud of everything that I do, and if you haven’t noticed, I’m really good at anything I set my mind to, and my creative output is consistently high-quality. But when I finally saw this book in it’s final form, it totally blew my mind and exceeded my already unreasonably high expectations of myself. And that’s because it was a heroic collaboration with a heroic dog named Norbert. The book is beautifully illustrated, with a beautiful story, and for a good cause – to help special needs pets such as myself.

Anything else you’d care to add?
