Snoozy Snacks

Oh noes! We look like four little sweet peas in a pod! What if a hungry giant comes along and noms us up?

So, Dude, when I saw all those waves, I did the obvious thing to do, cowabunga all the way! Primo.

Mrs. Fluffy in the Twenty-Fifth Century!

As she emerged from the cryogenic quadrophonic hyperbolic freeze chamber, Mrs. Puffy gazed in wonder at the marvels of the new age. Flying cars! Colonies on Mars! Self-chasing squeaky toys!

Around the Living Room in Eighty Days

Bidding farewell to the natives of Pago Pago, I set my sights on Bora Bora, and from there to Baden Baden, Qhora Qhora, Zam Zam, and Omsk. Alas, a haboob from Hibhib buffeted my balloon willy-nilly, to either Wagga Wagga or Walla Walla.

It’s International Assistance Dog Week!

It’s running through August 10th. Find out more here, and don’t forget to give this little knucklehead below a virtual snorgle! (And isn’t that John Cleese with the narration from a couple years back? Dogtober sounds like a great idea–maybe we can combine it with ‘Tocktober?)

THIS JUST IN: Holy Hairballs, There’s A Maru 2

Well, sorta. It seems Mugumogu and His Thickness have a new in-house playmate. Here’s the Google Translate version of her post. (“The Circle” is Maru.) Bottom line- gonna need more Amazon JP boxes!!!


“I will add the English translation later update a hitch, we apologize for any worry, but the Circle is very well. – During this time ‘housemate has been increased one person.’ Of love Circle With it, you and chasing, to play and run around in the hope that it will be me getting to play with good – this ‘strange creature What is .'”


“Was greeted by family Chibi cat that had been foster parents recruited Animal Hospital. And for round 6-year-old to have grown up in one person, we provide a long trial period of two weeks, on the third day, and the figure of 6-year-old children to chase on an equal basis and Chibi cat-month-old 2.”


“The ‘dark zap to guy looks!’ Current relationship with Chibi cat was worried, better than might have been expected. The mood of the round, also that sleep until morning in the box of one. It becomes irregular update in the future, but the Circle is doing really well, but please do not worry.”

The Last Squirrel on Earth

“(It’s been over a month since the pigeons became self-aware and took over. They’ve been rounding us up into camps. Every day, the resistance gets smaller. I don’t know how much longer I can hold out. If anyone sees this video, let it be a testament to those brave souls who stood their ground and held onto their nuts.)”

Marissa S. writes: “My friend Raywat, in Ottawa, says he was ‘mugged by a squirrel, who then took a selfie on my phone.’ This seems to push beyond the edge of photo bombing into new territory.”
