PSSST! Hey …

Hey, buddy. Yeah you. C’mere. Wanna buy a book? My name’s Pippin; purveyor of never-read books. Previous owner only used for impressing company.

I am also an honest used twist-tie dealer and lint ball merchant, and an “adorable ball of spaz”.

Come back! I’ll throw in a twist-tie for free!

“My name is Katrina, and I am a long-time fan of cuteoverload. My boyfriend, Alex, and I adopted an adorable ball of spaz named Pippin a few months ago from the Washington Animal Rescue League. He just had his 1st birthday a couple weeks ago and already has had an eventful life, including illness, broken bones, multiple homes, and 2 name changes. At 6 months old, while being hospitalized for a moderate URI, Pippin (then Champ) fell out of his cage and broke his left hind leg. His owner couldn’t or wouldn’t give the extra care he needed, so the little guy stayed at the hospital until the good people at the Washington Animal Rescue League took him in. Alex saw his picture on their website a Christmas, and we just knew, you know? We didn’t learn about Pippin’s (then Zap) medical history until we filled out an application to adopt him, but he’s so active you would never be able to tell his leg was ever broken! We chose the name Pippin after the character from Lord of the Rings, which is quite fitting- he gets into EVERYTHING. Including the bookcase. Especially the bookcase. Alex takes awesome photos and has managed to get a few shots of Pippin (in between energetic running spurts of kitten-crazy).” Check them out on Alex’s flickr.

SOS: Save Our Sloths!

GHXiP5YCuteporter Becky C. fills us in: “I work at the Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica and we desperately need help in order to continue our work rescuing sloths. We’ve recently launched the Save Our Sloths campaign to try and raise enough funds to return rescued baby sloths to the wild. There is lots more information on our campaign page!” (Becky also supplied these photos late last night. Awesome.)

Loki, after losing another battle with the toilet paper tube, wonders if a face lift would be a good idea.

Time For Some Blorp, Mate!

Cuteporter Abigail M. sent in one of these images, and the link led to a lot more. She explains: “Here are a plethora of adorable Australian sea lion photos by underwater photographer Tony Wu. They have all the elements of adorable animal photos: fish eye lens, big eyes, even bigger schnozzes :).” Quite blorpy, too. You can also read more about Tony here.
