One of our very favorite hams has passed away today. The beloved Chmurka. Let’s all grab paws, stuff our cheeks to the HILT and thank the Lo’ we got a chance to know the little fluffball. [Bagpipe music starts blaring]
This is the story of the dog and the, oh, I dunno, how about a hedgehog? Sure, why not? Okay, so the dog, who was a prideful, covetous thing, was carrying his bone when he came across the crafty hedgehog. "My bone is so much bigger and juicier than yours," boasted the hedgehog. "Then I will take it from you," said the dog.
And so the dog chased away the hedgehog and took his bone. But that’s just what the wily hedgehog wanted him to do, for he knew that the dog’s bone was much bigger. Quick as a wink, he grabbed the dog’s bone, but it was too heavy and he couldn’t lift it.
"You tricked me!" said the dog. "Just for that, I’m taking BOTH bones!" But try as he might, the dog could not fit both bones into his mouth. So he just took his original bone and went away.
Moral of the story: Beats me. I’ll be at the pub.
Sometimes the magic happens, Letty F., and sometimes it don’t.
We all know that ferrets are just kneesocks with eyes. So when this little mini endangered black-footed sock was born over at the National Zoo, of course they had to create a Ferret Cam for all of us to enjoy. I think he looks more worm-like than sock-like. You?
Can you see his little sock-face under her right paw?
And now, the baby face right next to his Momma’s (he doesn’t have dark markings yet)
Now, all noodle-like, flopping around
Kinda mini-polar-bear-ish here:
Way to un-endanger-em, Sender-Inner Tara W. and the National Zoo’s Conservation and Research Center!
The Daily Coyote is all about the adventures of Shreve Stockton and her animals in Wyoming.
Apparently, there is a NEW puppeh in town, Chloe. She’s seen here curling up with Eli (tomcat) and Charlie (rescued KYE-yoat). Apparently, Eli still runs the roost. Good kitteh.
A beellion more photos and the full story available at Daily Coyote. Thanks for the update, Emily B.
The perfect Sunday brunch! Strawberries, fruit cup, and fresh kitteh.
Nom nom nom
No, THANK YOU, Sender-Inner Ramona G. and Original poster Carnage Knockout! [Many more prosh photos/scenes there]
Hokey Pokey Challenger "TomTom" throws down the gauntlet. "Oh, I got the hokage and the pokage" he told his spokespeople. "I got it right here. I’ll take all ya’ll on." [Looks directly into the camera with tiniest of growls]
Of course TomTom has his own blog. Go for the win, Emily A.!

And then you just sit there and pout.

Turn-ons: Honesty, long walks on the beach, extra gravy in my kibble, world peace.
Turn-offs: Judgmental people, Mondays, those two cats from next door who won’t stop hissing at me, voice mail.
Ambitions: I guess I want what every modern dog wants — to balance a home life and a career, treat every day like a new adventure, and always follow the path my heart wants me to follow.
I only read Cute Overload for the articles, Kateryna A. No, really.
