Do Our Tails Make Our ‘Tocks Look Big?

A trifecta of tiny tailed ‘tock titans:



“Peeg ‘tocks, from Dropstone Farms, Orting, Washington. He’s certainly having a good time wallowing in his mud soup! ” -Susan H.
“Taciturn pachyderm at Woodland Zoo, Seattle, WA. Despite much coaxing and cajoling from onlookers, (s)he was having nothing to do with any of us.”  -Addicted follower, Margaret M.
“This lovely okapi lives at the London Zoo. A shy creature that originates from the Congo , was discovered in 1901.” -Helen  O. “PS Your site is my happiest addiction! Thank you for the overload of cute you share!!!”


A ‘Tocktober Halloween Tail

… and that’s when I heard the monster scratch-scratch-scratching outside my open window. I turned, and saw a bony, three-fingered hand reaching to grab me…

... and his eyes felt just like... THESE GRAPES!!!
Susie M. says: “This is my girl Daisy. She is usually much more lady-like by sleeping side saddle. But who can blame a tuckered pup for just collapsing after a hard day of being cute?”

Hi, I’m Rob The Palm Sqwerl

[Hi, I’m Rob. A movie guy filming in Sri Lanka this summer rescued me!]

[Got my own FB, natch.]

[More deets here– I think his name is Paul. I don’t know for sure tho, since I can’t read.]

[Dude couldn’t take me back to the UK so he set me up in a hotel.]

[Pretty sweet deal, right?]

[I’ve had to turn down a lot of media requests. But not Christiane Amanpour. I like her.]

[I think I need an agent.]

[But then I gotta pay like 20%, so maybe not.]

Nite Nite!

Do Not Try This At Home, even if it IS ‘Tocktober!

Wonderful ‘tock shot, but whoa, just whoa. Isn’t there a rule about not standing behind a horse? Kinda makes ya nervous just looking at it. And check out that stink eye!

“Dear Cuteoverload, here is Furiol’s ass, an elegant and nice and strong Spanish horse’s one, from somewhere in the high Pyrenees a month or so ago. Tock and tack in one pic!” -Bogi

Great Scot!

You see this man? This man is Scottish. This man is brdrdrrrave.

He SMILES in the face of DANGERDRDR.

Ferdrocious DANGERDRDR!


“Personally, I couldn’t stay mad at anyone with a Scottish accent, but I’m also not a “ferocious beast”. She’s all, “Fear me — rarrgh!” And we just laugh and say aww!” -Jennie M.

these magnets are so attractive!

“I was doing a little online shopping today and came across these *ahem* unique magnets. My first thought was, ‘These are perfect for ‘Tocktober!’ My second thought was, ‘I should send these to CO!'” ~Anna G.
