Close Encounters Of The Chiquita Kind

Gyoza here. Hoomin left this on the table. Hideously tortured it by peeling back its skin and ingesting most of it. Then left the carcass to wither and die. Must investigate this, though imminent peril may await. Will I suffer the same fate?


Wish me luck- I’m going in.

Them Summer Days, Those Summer Days

Out of school, yeah
County fair in the country sun
And everything, it’s true, ooh, yeah, yeah
Hot fun in the summertime…

The Deer Whisperer

Let the comparisons to Bambi begin!

“We were unpacking the car from a trip when this fawn stumbled across our yard and into Maya’s arms. The fawn had a good sense about Maya and followed her every step. They were inseparable. Maya knew it needed its mother, who we believe was off eating and recuperating from the birthing, so she led it back to the woods. We have not seen the fawn since.”

-Cuteporter Brad H., whose daughter Maya obviously has a bright future working with animals.

Slip Slidin’ Away

When a kitty flops over on the floor, sometimes it’s best to let it slide.

Sorry About That, Grasshopper

Last Friday, we had a Grasshopper Haiku and forgot to include this little maniac. Our apologies.



“Check out this little fellow sitting on my hand and arm. I found him on the neighbor’s swing set when my daughter was there playing. After I held him for a moment I released him to continue his life on the dogwood tree.” -Cuteporter Andrea D., who used a Nikon D3000 for these super shots.

What’s On The Schedule Today, Meepo?

Well…I’m gonna wake up.


Play with my toy. That’s about it. Couple of naps, some chow too probably. I dunno. Will play it by ear.

“Here is my kitty Meepo hanging out in Schrödinger’s (one of my other cats; black and fluffy and named while living with physicists) crate. Also, Meepo doing her best back bend. Thanks for taking a look at my sweet kitties! I hope they bring a smile to your face as they always do to mine.” -Johnnie L.

The Adventures Of Puddles

“Long-time reader, first-time submitter. I would love to introduce you to Puddles, my 4 month old Shorkie. He enjoys walks, barking, smelling, farting and being a puppy! I would love to see him on your site!” -Missy L.









Little Orphan Eggie

In over 40 years of rescuing our feathered friends around the world, this was one of the most anticipated arrivals of all for International Bird Rescue. A severely injured mama Mallard was brought in to their San Francisco Bay Wildlife Hospital and found to have a single egg. Mama could not be saved but the veterinary staff were able to save her one egg. 26 days later, after waiting and wondering, a perfect mallard duckling hatched!

Read the entire orphaned duckling’s awesome story at International Bird Rescue. “Hey there, thought I’d send our latest Cute Overload submission! This Mallard Duckling in hot pursuit of a dragonfly is by Kim Taylor, our recent Photographers in Focus honoree (who gives permission for the photo to be used.)” -Andrew H.

Today Ees National Hug Your Cat Day!

Your mission, should you decide to accept it- is to find a cat. Then hug it. (Any size cat/kitteh will do.) Alternatively, a massage will also work nicely. This has been a Public Service Announcement from Cute Overload.

From DP.

This Is How It Is DONE

Snorgling a little furhead. What could be BETTAH? Speakers up for The Squeakingks!
