Green-Eyed Monster? Hardly!

Annika M.: “We just relocated from Florida to Panama. It’s great down here…besides the smouldering humidity, mosquitoes the size of canaries, and sugar ants. Recently, I made breakfast for my guy, and picked a flower in the backyard to put on the tray. Lo and behold, I noticed the ‘stem’ moving and screamed like a banshee, running off thinking the flower somehow had come to life.”


“When I came back to see what it really was, I saw a mantis peeking out from under a petal, looking at me like, ‘Why did you wake me up?‘”


“He was very curious and gentle. After the photos, I took him back out to find a new flower-home.”

(*Tried and tried to fit VH’s ‘Panama’ in somewhere- could NOT make it work. RRR. -B.)


There Should Be a Law

For national Cute Overload security reasons, piggalettes and duckalettes cannot share the same blankie at the same time. Too dedleh! Oh, what’s this then? …innocent whistle.

“Hvor er grisen?” is Norwegian for, “Where’s the piglet?” Via YouTube.

Hmm, Wonder Who Ate All the Sushi?

And if you look very closely you can see it still swimming in those deep blue eyes!

“This is Abby, a handsome Snowshoe Siamese just adopted from Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue. Who could resist that mustache?” -Cynthia S.

Speckle Belleh!

Why does everybody say stripes and polka dots don’t go together? They’re fabulous!

“We had such a fun time being featured on CO last time we wanted to provide an update. Puddles now has over 1k likes on his Facebook page and got a haircut along the way. He has smelled many more butts than before and even walked down stairs for the first time!” -Marcos & Missy

R U Ready For Some Football?

It looks like this little guy is! First NFL game of the season is tonight at 8:30ET, Ravens @ Broncos! (sorry George, Vikes don’t play ’til Sunday.)




“Here are some photos of my 1-year-old French Bulldog, George Sempris Richards (AKA Ziggy.) Check out his profile on Dogster for more photos. He’s a big football fan. Go Vikings!” – Melanie B.

THIS JUST IN: How To Hold A Bub

There’s a right way to do things…and a wrong way.

This is the right way.

HISS! HISS! Eet’s Belleh Scritchin’ Time!

Wooo-hoooo! (say in Pillsbury Doughboy voice)

“We thought we had seen everything, and then we came across this.” -Barb & Paul: Cutesters

THIS JUST IN: It’s A Girl! (Updated!)

Panda-monium (I know it’s a cliché, but it fits, yo) at the National Zoo this morning, folks. According to the Zoo’s FB page, “Genetics confirmed that our panda cub is a girl! Further, the paternity analysis shows that her father is Tian Tian.”

PS- Check the Panda Cam here– but give it a minute, the whole world is watching.

Peacock Spiders! Wait. What?

[First of all, who knew these existed? Raise your hands. And don’t lie. -Ed]

I must admit, I was intrigued when I watched this video, which was sent in by Cuteporter Sarah H. But since “Spider” was the subject of the email, I felt I needed to consult with She Who Is The Higher Authority On Such Things. After all, traditionally:


They’re scary as h-e-double toothpicks. And this video is from Australia, where they’ll tackle anything without a second thought. (Say like Steve Irwin: Woo Hoo! Let’s arm wrassle this Great White! Wait- no arms! No worries- whatta BEAUTY!) (And I say that with deep respect for his memory.) So the verdict is:

I really like it’s little white gloves. Cute! -Meg

So if you would, do a lotta checking out of this mating dance deal here. Amazink!

Holey Moley!

Digging holes is okay, but what I really want to do is tunnel a massive subway network with ticket booths, turnstiles, newspaper stands and gift shops and, and restaurants!

And that’s the tooth, the whole tooth and nothing but the tooth.
