Who Am I to Argue With Fate?

I was going to fetch the newspaper. I was. Really. But then the cat curled up on my lap.

And you know what they say about letting sleeping cats lie.

The Infinite Cuteness Project

It started with a black-and-white bunny; then a tuxedo cat got in on the act. Now thanks to Piia S. from Finland, a new cat is in the picture, and we have the makings of an endless chain. Who wants to be next?

Lion Lullaby

Hush little baby, don’t lose hope
Mama’s gonna catch you an antelope

And if your tummy rumbles more
Mama’s gonna run down a wild boar

And if that boar’s too boring for you
Mama’s gonna net you a nummy gnu

And if that gnu just runs and laughs
Mama’s gonna hunt down a herd of giraffes

And if those giraffe should scamper east
Mama’s gonna bag you a wildebeest

And if that wildebeest’s too wary
Mama’s gonna slaughter a whole safari

And if that safari bails (how rude!)
Mama’s gonna send out for Chinese food


And if there’s a photo that makes your day
It prolly came from Flickr user Brian McKay

Vintage ResQte

From the Smithsonian Institution comes this very old photo, along with a heartwarming story of a dog who rode the rails:

Owney was a stray dog who wandered into the Albany, New York, post office in 1888. The clerks let him stay the night, and he fell asleep on a pile of empty mailbags. Owney was attracted to the texture or scent of the mailbags and began to follow them, first onto mail wagons and then onto mail trains. Owney began to ride with the bags on Railway Post Office (RPO) train cars across the state, and then the country. The RPO clerks adopted Owney as their unofficial mascot, marking his travels by placing medals and tags from his stops on his collar

Some Things Are Best Left to the Pros

Eager to squeeze in on the “wacky cats in tiny boxes” craze, sad-eyed Buddy the bulldog bites off much less than he can chew. Nice try, Buddy.
