Crank the Enya and Warm the Lava Rocks

Oh Helga, you have the hands of a truck driver with the delicate touch of a hummingbird’s kiss…

How much does Helga charge, because the bird’s got the right idea, Melissa G-L.

Ah, the “Terrible Twos”

Um, Jeffy? Sweetie? I know you’re going to be a big boy soon, but don’t you think you’d be happier using the kiddie hydrant — just for the time being?

Says Lauryn D.: “One day we were going on a walk, and since I carry my camera around with me wherever I go, when he went to sniff the fire hydrant, I called out his name, and snapped a photo. And I got this perfect and hilarious picture of him!”

From across the juice bar, I was mesmerized…

She was like the Helena Bonham Carter of cats; she was exceptionally unusual. Her eyes, for instance, were like something I’d never seen – they were like giant saucers overflowing with thick carrot puree. And my God, I love carrot puree.

Lookie What Loki Found

Oh boy, I bet these have been buried here since 1984! What a treat this is! A real relic from the past!

They taste like the Wrinkled One’s hard candies, but still – what a find! Check ‘em out – WAX LIPS!

Ducky See, Ducky Do

Neill S writes: “My girlfriend and I were at the Phoenix Zoo and saw the funniest thing. We were looking at the flamingos and noticed a duck that was trying his hardest to be one himself! He kept trying to balance on one foot (with a little difficulty.) He also kept checking to make sure he was doing it right.”

Little Orphan Angelo

Born on a truck headed for a slaughterhouse, Angelo was on his way to lamb-chop Heaven when a sharp-eyed passerby begged the driver to set him free. Now in the care of Farm Sanctuary, he’s a sproinging, munching, pig-sniffing bundle of joy.

I appreciate the thought…

Really, I do; it’s a very stylish sweater. Matches my eyes and everything. It’s just that (gasp!) it’s just a (wheeze!) skosh too tight, is the problem.

Gee, it looked bigger in the pattern book, Lily C.

… wind-up mousies, jingling-bell balls, catnip rolling papers, invisible things only cats can see, scratching posts… Watch your step, please…

Cat-a-vator technology has certainly improved since the old days:
