The Tale of Piwi the Kiwi

This is too cool for jokes, so we’ll let the YouTube notes tell the story:

Wildlife experts found Piwi and transported him to a wildlife park to mend his broken leg. The vets decided to use a treadmill to help with Piwi’s recovery. At first, Piwi wasn’t too thrilled to be on the treadmill, but the vets have said that his workout has drastically improved his muscle tone and great chance of surviving out in the wild again.

Don’t Wake the Beast

What an adorable baby skunk! Look at him, all shmooshy and sleepy!

He’s just the *sweetest* little guy in the whole wide world!

Oooh, my favorite little fella’s waking up!

No kidding, I’m waking up. I bet it has nothing to do with your insipid yapping. And FYI: Dreams don’t come true, because guess what? I’m still here…in the House that Beige Built.

Now, why don’t you put me down and run and get my lunch. And sweetie? You may want to rethink that lipstick, because it’s only enhancing that trout pout.

Don’t you love that new skunk smell, Sara?

That is One Big Baby

On July 13th, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay welcomed a baby white rhinoceros:

The female baby is the fifth white rhino born at Busch Gardens since 2004.

The baby weighed in at an estimated 140 pounds at birth, and she’ll gain approximately FOUR pounds EACH DAY until she reaches her Volkswagen-sized weight of 3,500 to 4,000 pounds. It’s safe to say that nobody will be putting baby in a corner.

Is Your Pocket Pet a Secret Spy?

A Cute Overload Security Bulletin: The newest trend in corporate espionage is the “surveillance hamster,” an innocent-looking pet trained to listen in on phone calls and report to competitors. Beware!

That’s Squishy the Hamster, from Lisa S.!

Rodents of Unusual Size?

… I don’t think they exist.

Looks like someone got the drop on Bandito, Allison L.

CelebriQte!

Most puppies just lick themselves, but this one scrubs. Meet Scooter, new ani-pal of “Scrubs” actor Zach Braff, currently starring in Trust in New York. See more cuteness on Zach’s Facebook page — and there are more pics of Scooter, too.

Nice catch, Melanie.
