The Capybara Family Hits the Mall

"OK, kids, we’ve got a busy day planned.  From eight until eleven, we hit the department stores, and I’ll need you running interference for me at the sale tables.  Next, I need to stop by Just Hammers and get something for your dad.  At noon, we stop at the food court, and then you’re all getting your picture taken with Santa; try not to freak out like last year, Timmy.  All right, people — let’s move out!"

They're a lean, mean shopping MACHINE!

Try to stay out of their way, Brinke G.

Well, This Sucks

"Check out these road hogs, will’ya?  What’s the matter, lady — you and the kids skipped breakfast again?  Hoof it outta here, Squeals on Wheels, I got stuff to do today!"

Pay no attention, children, we're more equal than they are.

Let’s see if the peeps can milk some more jokes out of this, Johanna S.

Happy Thanksgiving Peeps!

This cornocopia kitten-a-copia represents a bountiful kitteh harvest this year. Let’s all curl up into a ball and reflect on what we’re grateful for this year.

1. I’m grateful for not ever having to nap this close to someone else’s butt (most of the time)

You know that Sir Pugsalot is the brains of the outfit, he’s all planning to get a ride on Mount Mastiff to the dog cookie jar and the dinner table for dessert snorfing.

But I bet Mount Mastiff calls the major shots, like where the pair is gonna nap for the day, how much effort to exert in general etc.
