Snow Day!

"Awesome! It snowed last night, and Dad just said that he heard on the radio that we don’t have Zoo today, yippeee!  Hey, maybe we can go to the School and look at the baby humans."

La la la, I can’t hearrrr you!

No, literally. I have no ears.

And Our Winner Is…

Our latest quiz was a categorical success!  And our winners, randomly selected, are Wylie and Betty M.!  Congratulations, and we’ll be dropping your Cute Overload Page-A-Day Calendar down your chimney soon.

Now, the answers:

( G ) Where in California will you find Avalon?  Answer: Santa Catalina Island
( E ) Who doesn’t belong on this list (and why)?  Our preferred answer was Katharine Hepburn.  All the others played characters with "cat" in their names (Cat Ballou, Catwoman, Maggie the Cat).  However, many peeps found other equally accurate answers, which we accepted.

... not that Kate didn't know about cats ...

( H ) A ceramic cat with one raised paw is considered lucky in what country?  Answer: Japan
( AL ) What comic strip character has a cat named Hot Dog?  Answer: "Dennis the Menace" (AKA "Dennis" in the UK)

Cute-nichiwa!

( SN ) In 2007, "Cinnamon" became the first cat to make what scientific contribution? Answer: Genome sequenced
( SL ) What board game features a boot, a bathtub, and a bowling ball? Answer: Mouse Trap

Sequence THIS, pal! (WHAP!)

FA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA- (Aaugh! Make it stop!)

Always keep your ears at “10″ and “2″

Maybe a smooshed-face kitteh expert can enlighten us? I think one is a tail, one is a paw?!?!?
