Toesday Mojo BONUS!

09-02mojoAnne C. lays some Major Toesday Mojo on us- whew! “I present for your consideration our cat Mojo. I believe he’d be a good candidate to feature on a Toesday because of his BONUS toes: 21 toes all together, including a hidden interdigital claw on his front left paw that we call his ‘Secret Weapon.'”

“Mojo was originally a foster kitten from the Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society. He was a thin, sickly baby who cried whenever I put him down, so I had to carry him around tucked into the front of my bathrobe.

“We nursed him back to health with a diet of tuna and fresh goat milk, and after that, there was no way he wouldn’t become a permanent part of the family. Thanks so much for all you do on your website! It’s such a bright spot on the Web, and cheers up so many people every day!”

Poll: Is Zimba Guilty…Or NOT Guilty?

unnamed (2)(Update: Email just in: “I forgot to tell you Zimba is a female! Can u change it to ‘she’?”) -Dana.

In the above photo, Zimba looks like he she doesn’t have a care in the world. One totally happy dude girl, or Not Guilty. However, below would tend to support a Guilty verdict- what did Zimba do? Chew on some pricey new New Balance 993’s at $159.99 a pop? (Amazon SRP.) Take our poll!

Wanna Be IN The 2016 Cute Overload Calendar?

(Well, your pet, we mean.)

The 2015 C.O. Calendar is now available, and we’re already planning for the 2016 follow-up! If you’ve got a great animal photo- we wanna see it. Now, there are a few guidelines here.

* It has to be a large file size. No 16kb file sizes.
* It has to be razor sharp. Can’t emphasize this enough. It might very well be the cutest photo ever, but if it’s blurry, it’ll get whacked. It’s not personal Sonny, it’s strictly business.
* Please put “2016 Calendar Submission” in the subject line. If we love yours and want to move forward with it, we’ll send ya some more details.
