Can We Shove Off, Cap’n?

Not that I haven’t enjoyed the shore leave, sir. The natives were nice and gave me plenty of ear scritches, but — begg’n your pardon, Cap’n — I’d just as soon be off.

Let’s just say the Sandwich Islands weren’t what the name implied.

Looking ship-shape there, Elvis H.

I Hate it When My Snuggie’s in the Laundry

Being a cat, Damien always looked forward to another busy day of napping on the job.

Getting dressed for work was the hard part.

Sender-inner Janice S. says, “My boyfriend and I adopted this kitten, Damien, who apparently loves hair-ties so much that he eats them. Needless to say, a doctor needed to remove them, from him.”

Opening-night Jitters

(Wow, Stan — the house is packed! Standing room only!)

(And I think I see the theater critic from the Times in the front row!)

A mother cat. A litter. A precious moment. A… imposter!?
Did you swap your milk money for tater tots at school again, Jeffrey?

Can’t You Build the Barn Later?

I’m too terribly tie-tie to toddle today. Ta.

Jan T. says: “This is my pygmy goat, Jesse, when he was 9 days old. After a few hours of playing with his older brothers, he laid down on some boards intended for a remodeling project to take a nap.”

*Chimp My Ride

So I was driving, and the Mrs. suddenly looked panicky, not the kind of panicky like when it’s late at night and I’m driving too fast on a curvy road we’ve never been on before and there are no other cars and the radio only gets one station and it plays that droning new age tonal stuff and she’s been telling me this long story about when she was a kid at summer camp and…. and all of a sudden she notices I have fallen asleep at the wheel. Not that sort of panicky

Then the officer charged us with monk and disorderly driving.

Follow that monkey, johnhope14! *OK, it is not a chimp, it’s a macaque. How about a little gibbon take here.

Don’t You Forget About Me

Don’t Don’t Don’t Don’t
Don’t you forget about me.

Will you stand above me?
Look my way and never love me?
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling,
Down, down, down…

Sender-Inner Jenny B. says, “let people know there are animals out there that need us desperately. And to always treat them with the same dignity and kindness we would like to receive ourselves.” Photo: Kitten, December, 2007, Hoi An, VietNam flooding disaster; unknown photographer.

Time for some cute nightmare fuel, in the form of this animation from artist and composer Cyriak, which looks like the result of a nuclear meltdown at Build-A-Bear.
