Undulating Chick Carpet!

Well, wonder no more!

Attached are pictures of my annual hatch. Despite having a heat lamp
to keep them roasty-toasty, they sleep by packing themselves in like
sardines, burying their little faces under their neighbor. The result
looks like a fluffy carpet or rug (with the odd wing, beak, or foot
sticking up out of the pile) that undulates as they breathe. The
little buggers are so damned cute, I can hardly stand it. And although
it may be difficult to believe, in just a fortnight they’ll all be as
ugly as sin (Ever seen an adolescent chicken? They’re definitely NOT
Cute Overload material!).

The Year In Cute: Is That A Ferret In Your Blouse …

… or are we just happy to see you?  2008 was a diverse year for Cats ‘n’ Racks™: Ferrets, waterfowl, stuffed animals, and even the occasional cat.  And now, a little somethin’ for the fellas:

Nothing says 'you're just getting a handshake tonight' quite like ferrets.

Accessory Tip: A strategically-placed duckling can be very beak-oming …

Ugh, we're going to pretend we didn't hear that.

And finally, perhaps the most enchanting creature ever to grace these pages: Warm, inviting smile; eyes that sparkle like moonlight across distant waters … and a really nice beav — No.  No, I won’t say it.  I won’t sully this vision of radiance and purity with such vulgarity.

Like hell I won't: NICE BEAVER!!

Thanks for the mammaries, Jennie W., Arlo R., Brittany F., and (sigh) Sasha V.

Headless penguin continues to thrive at Japanese Zoo

He still manages to stay pretty plump despite his lack of a noodle.

Carry on!

I Shall Pet You Now…

…WITH MY CLAW!!!

Cat and parrot found by Andrew Y. I haven’t laughed that hard since the Trapezoid haircut on that Bichon Frisé!

Holy Hooters!

People, get a load of this shape-shifting owl action. It’s a delightful slice of Darwinism!

A Justifiably Obscure Christmas Jingle

Who’s that flappin’ down the chimney?  Who’s that tappin’ at the tree?
It’s the elf with the bill, and he won’t stop until every boy and girl is giddy with glee.

Every Christmas time he’s at it again, a sack full of toys and an IQ of ten,
You might get meat or you might get a doll, ’cause he’s got no clue who you are at all.

So open those presents and try your luck; it could be wood or it could be a truck,
Will Christmas be merry or will it suck?  You never can tell with Santa Duck!

Enjoy that chemistry set and/or pantyhose, kids!

Have a possibly Merry Christmas, Karen K.

This Is Your Day, Arthur Pewtey!

"You’re going to march right into that office and say ‘listen here, Mr. Higgenblatz, I’ve been with this firm for over ten years, and it’s high time I had my own private office, and a reserved parking space, and a five dollar an hour raise, and … um, how about two dollars, then?  And, er, the office doesn’t have to have to be really big or have a window or anything, and I’ve been thinking about taking the bus anyway, so I don’t really need the parking space …’ "

... and if I had to share the office, that would be OK, I guess ...

That’ll show him who’s boss, Becky H.
