Hang In There, Stubbs!

Stubbs The Cat is the honorary mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska, and has held that title with distinction and dignity for 15 years. Been a tough time lately for Stubbs, though. The furry resident of Nagley’s General Store was attacked by a loose dog on August 31st, and is in serious condition. More here…and here’s how you can donate to help with his care.

Cute Overload spoke to Lauri Stec, Stubb’s Hoomin, on Friday afternoon. She said he is “Doing good, and he might be coming home this coming week. He’d have to be set up in a cage in the store for 2 months or so, so he could still socialize. Probably 6-8 weeks before he is back to walking around the store.”

Kudos to Cuteporter Karen R.

Meanwhile, at Radiant Inner Pain Yoga Center…

“I see you’re having trouble with the ‘Karma Pretzel’ pose — Here, let me show you how it’s done.”

Dog hairs swirling around on backseat, fur flying out the window, other drivers turn on shedshield wipers…

“Hi Cute Overload! Long time reader here – We took our city-dog Sonny to the suburbs to enjoy an off leash dog park and rolled down the window on the way. He never hangs out the window in the city, so this was a treat! He just looks so Zen! We adopted him over 5 years ago and the shelter said he was 4-6 years old. He hasn’t grown much (still 13 lbs) but we’re pretty convinced he’ll be an eternally grumpy puppy.” -Alison K.

Rattersons Moment of Derp-Derp

Relaxing at home after work when the realization dawns, “Did I leave my computer on at work? Did I leave Cute Overload’s page open?!” (makes Uh-Oh eyes)

“This is one of my pet rats, Rocco, enjoying a French fry. The derp is strong with this one.” -H. Due

Privacy Paw (In The ‘Stan)

“Check this picture of Nowzad, the dog who launched the Nowzad charity – rescuing stray and abandoned dogs in Afghanistan. Excellent poise and textbook example of a ‘privacy paw’. These guys should do a ‘Marines & their rescued dogs’ calendar! Who doesn’t want that on their cubicle wall?” -Cuteporter Stephanie H.

(*We -think- this photo is from Afghanistan. Sure looks that way. “Either Afghanistan or somewhere really dusty,” opines Stephanie.)

Bunnies With Good Taste

Please, you first. After you! No you go first. Oh no, I insist. That’s very kind of you but, carats are too rich for my diet.

“This is my herd: from left to right: Frankie, Penny Lou, Zoe, Sammy Jo, and Stanley. The three lops are siblings. A group photo like this is exceedingly rare because Stanley tends to bully Frankie, and all of them think they own the world. I love Cute Overload!!!” -Sydney.

…in a single bound: it’s Super Bun(s)!


“I found these images on the Instagram page of Biscuit and Muffin. Amazing shots!” -Cuteporter Deb in NYC.

Hi Honey, I’m Home!
