You’re my puppy

According a story floating around the Internets, this little ginger foster kitten named Cheech was introduced to a teeny tiny five-day old orphaned chihuahua puppy named Casanova.


Cheech took to the little puppy, immediately grooming and cleaning him.


The puppy responded to his every touch, snuggling up to his new friend like a pup to his mother.


When Cheech was tired, he would climb into the puppy’s box and cuddle, sharing the heating blanket.


To Cheech, he was “his” puppy and best friend.

Rare white kiwi action

The New Zealand Pukaha Wildlife Centre recently announced the birth of a prosh, rare white kiwi. Due to recessive genes, very few kiwis look this faaaaaaaabulous!!! [singsong] Check it:

Sender-Inner Kristina B. says this chick is “a-stupid cute”. Yes. Manukura – the little white kiwi. is by Mike H.

Branded Cute Overload—LITERALLY!

We have a few products in our Cute Overload arsenal over the years, this fine blog, page-a-day calendars and wall calendars, but we’ve never actually branded an animal—until now!

Introducing the Calf Earring. Only the cutest of calves can proudly wear it.

All right, all right, I totally Photoshopped it. Guilty.


Thanks to Sender-Inner Megin M. and her cowhorts Alterra Coffee and Sassy Cow Creamery.

Mo’ hams, mo’ problems

The Star is reporting 3 hamsters produced 26 pups in Toronto. Apparently, the ham owner didn’t check the sex of her pets, then put them all together which produced the biggest Ham Overload the shelter has seen in years.


Sender-Inner Adrienne Y. says “Oh Noes.” Agreed.

Don’t Take Another Step

We have a bunny and we’re not afraid to use it. This baby is a powerful rocket-propelled disapproval launcher with 100 % accuracy and a prosh nosicle.


You win, Rebecca B.

Somebody Needs a Huuu-uuug…

A Bicycle Built for Whoooooooo

Flickr user Adam Norwood found this owlet had taken over his bicycle! “Definitely the best excuse I’ve ever had for being late to work,” he writes.


After snapping a few pictures, Norwood left the scared little bird alone. “Sure enough,” he writes, “as soon as it started getting dark out he called (screeched, really) for his momma owl to come take care of him.”
