Chinchillas! With! Cheerios!

Masumi T. and husband Chadsen K. just blew the roof off of CO. Gone.

Whaddawehavehere, Masumi? “White Chinchilla (Dad): Shifu. Black chinchilla (Mom): Boba. Gray Chinchilla (daughter): Mimi.”

“Plain Cheerios were recommended by their vet as a snack, so they’re safe to eat! :)”

“Shifu one day kept a Cheerio in his mouth for about a minute before deciding to eat it.”

“I probably squirm every day because of their immense cuteness!” [Imagine that. -Ed]


“If this is submitted you don’t have to use the description I gave at all to describe them, it was just so you get an idea of what was happening. :)” [Oh, we got it. -Ed]
UPDATE! We got another batch JUST IN!

From The CO Mailbag: Slugs ‘R’ Us

Dear Cute Overload:

I am a bit concerned over your lack of….slugs. Yes, slugs. While we don’t have quite the “Squee Factor” of say, “Kodie,” no doubt you will agree we have a certain slimy Je Ne Sais Quoi, no?

Sincerely,
Sammy McSluggersons

An Owl Burrito To Go, Please

These little fellows are called Saw-Whet Owls, at the University of Minnesota Raptor Center’s clinic. The clinic nurses ’em back to health when they have medical needs.

The Return O’ Kikuma & Silvey

Through extensive detailed scientific investigation and all sorts of CSI and Hawaii 5-0 crime lab stuff, we’ve pawsitively determined that this IS Kikuma, thus avoiding another ID kerfuffle. [More likely because it says the NAME on the video clip. -Ed]

Sender-Inner AT: “Was totally gobsmacked [GREAT word- we need more gobsmacked posts. -Ed] to see all the pictures in one go LOL.

“Also one of your commenters brought up an old one I forgot I uploaded for the breeder 2~3 years ago. And, um, I forgot the password and couldn’t access the old account lol.”

“Um, this is Silvey. She’s the easiest to recognize because she’s exactly as her name describes: Silver. Silvey is Kikuma’s aunt. Literally. She’s so tiny she makes Kikuma look like The Hulk. Under 4″ tall at nearly 6 years old.”

Philosopher Bunny Struggles with Truth

The days pass like shadows, creeping up walls until all is darkness and night. I pace from room to room, endless as the dim twisting corridors of my soul, seeking answers that do not come. From the other room I hear her call to me, like a desperate angel, powerless to break the chains that bind me to this world of woe.

“You gonna finish these carrots or what?” she softly asks.

Or what, I muse to myself. What… indeed?


We take you now to sender-inner Elizabeth S. at our Too Much Information desk: “Here is a picture taken recently of my bunnies Plushie and Twinkie. They’re brother and sister and absolutely inseparable. We had to separate them before they were spayed and neutered. Plushie would try to break out of his cage to go and see her. He was successful… TWICE.”

Who is Being Amused Here Really?

At first, you think I am amusing to you.

As if I were mere entertainment!

But also you are amusing to me.

Whether you laugh with me or at me, I still made you laugh.

8393493242_0c6e13a37b_z
This amuses me as much as a very amusing thing.
