Save The Pufflings! (Part II)

Remember our story about how these adorabuhl little maniacs wander into town and hunker under cars ’cause they’re, well, confused? Now we’ve got some equally adorabuhl video straight from Iceland via Animal Planet (and Cuteporter Isabel T.)

Bugly Ducklings

“I was taking a walk through the park tonight when I realized that the pond was full of the smallest, cutest, fuzziest baby ducklings. They were all jumping into the air to eat bugs (hence the picture of the little yellow-bellied guy in the air). Cutest thing I have EVER seen. Photos taken by me, Kelsey.”

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.

Grace M. writes: “This is Margot.  I adopted her about four years ago, and what a bundle of joy!  She drops jaws wherever she goes since she’s constantly performing tricks and dancing.  I walk and bike with her a lot, and  it turns a lot of heads when I’ve got my giant dog on one side and her boopin’ around on my head.”

Puffling Alert For All North Berwick Residents!

Don’t forget to check under your cars for pufflings! Sometimes they wander into the seaside Scottish town after leaving the nest for the first time, and hunker down underneath cars.

BEST ONE
“I thought this was something that should feature in The Cute, if only to make sure everyone knows to check under their car for pufflings! (Just the name is cute, don’t you think?) I read the T&Cs and hope this complies.” -Antonia (Sent from my iPad.) PS- Hi-res photo sent our way by Andy M. at the Scottish Seabird Centre.

They May Not Be From Jurassic Park

but this kitty full of rawr and tyranny on two legs makes a rather superb T-Rex. And, watch out behind you Kit-T-Rex,

(earth shakes) Here come the Parakeetasaurs! Ka-boom …boom …boom …boommmm!

“My cat Moisie totally looks like a velociraptor… she’s channeling Jurassic Park, in a softer, fluffier, not-so-dangerous-if-you-blow-a-raspberry-on-my-tummy kind of way.” -Anne F., Small Animal Talk blog writer and veterinarian. Parakeets running in slow motion via YouTube

Secrets of Stage Magic, Lesson 5

There are two approaches to the classic “disappearing ice cube” illusion:

Method One: Place ice cube on conjuring table. Distract audience with engaging patter for a few moments, long enough for concealed bird to pull ice cube into sleeve.

Method Two: Place ice cube on conjuring table. Distract audience with engaging patter for at least three hours, then reveal that ice cube has been replaced by water.


Bruce O. gives away the trick: “How does our pet Dusky-Headed Conure named “Scoop” keep her cool in this kind of weather? By hangin’ out in her sack and lickin’ on an ice cube!”

Cinduckerella’s Glass Slipper

Bring forth the glass 3D-model slipper! This is Buttercup, who lives at the Feathered Angels Waterfowl Sanctuary. Buttercup was born with only one proper foot. But the fairy godpeeps at NovaCopy came to the rescue with la très nouveau slippere’ made just for Buttercup! And the rest, they say, will be fairy tale prosthetic prosh-thetic history.

Show Stealer

Gorgeous ruby red tropical blooms that scream for attention? Oh please. Wally is the headline act.

Even a fluffy black Eminence on a neon tapestry is getting upstaged by Wally!

It’s OK, all you hot pink and fuchsia flowers, ain’t no shame in being outdone by Wally.

“We adopted Wally, the Blue-fronted Amazon Parrot, when he was 23 years old and had had two previous owners.  He will live well into his sixties and I have promised him a forever home. He has settled into our family of 2 dogs, 2 cats, a cockatiel, a tortoise and a Bearded Dragon. I love to place Wally in colorful settings around the back yard and take his photo.” -LuvFurArt.com artist, Kris B.
