“Hello Cute Overload. Your site has made me smile every morning for years! I would like the world to meet ‘Trapper.'”

“This little girl somehow got her head caught in an open cable hole in my deck on Tuesday September 2nd. The wonderful firefighters of Sparks Nevada Fire Station 2 spent over an hour to get her out including having to pry up part of my deck in order to safely cut her out.”

I think she entered this world as a feral kitten but she is now become a member of my home and joined her new “fur sisters and a fur brother” She is ruling the roost, purring nonstop and demanding lap time! (And sometimes she sleeps!)”

Monday Night Mellow

Alberto has obviously refined his relaxation technique to an art form. Emily G., explain to us how Big A does it. “Hi Cute Overload! I volunteer at a wonderful no-kill animal shelter in Los Angeles called Sante D’Or, and I couldn’t resist sending you pics of Alberto. He loves his hammock more than anything. Sante D’Or currently has three dogs, three guinea pigs, three rabbits, and about 30 cats, and they’re all wonderful.”

“Hopefully Alberto is cute enough for C.O. (despite his lack of ‘Tocks*)! Thanks for all that you do.”

[*No 'Tocks? NONE at all? Must investigate. Send a team down to LA and report immediately. -Ed.]

Simon Cowell* Saves Bebeh Swan!

[Quick overview- a Bebeh Swan is stuck in a fence- they do show this- but the rescue is amazingly Cute. Just letting you know. -Ed.]

A fellow named Simon Cowell* (not THAT one- this one is a nice guy whoops, “chap”) happens to be director of the Wildlife Aid Foundation in Surrey, UK. He got a call during dinner about the Bebeh Swan being stuck and all, so he drove right over to help out. The fence wasn’t the ONLY problem he had. And just wait ’til the Swan ‘Tocks Waggle at the end.

Move OVER, Yer Crowdin’ Me, Ivy!

tux8“Jennifer W. sent us the following email (and the great photos, natch:) “These are my adorable ResQte tuxedo twins Ivy and Jackson. They were feral orphans rescued from the street when they were a few months old. Since they missed the short window for socialization as babies, they remained semi-feral and terrified of humans when I met them a few months later as a new volunteer at their shelter. I managed to draw them out of hiding to play with the toys I brought with me, and slowly they started to trust me.”

“Soon I had fallen in love with these timid sweethearts and knew I had to adopt them. They have settled in beautifully, spending their days playing, snoozing, snuggling, and bird-watching. This brother-sister duo is the best of friends! I would be thrilled if you shared them on Cute Overload!”

MJ Needs YOUR Help, People!

“This is Mary Jane (MJ), a tiny toy poodle my sister acquired,” says Cuteporter Sachiko M. “MJ came with some pretty serious issues that we are currently fundraising so we can give her the second chance she deserves. It’s not likely she’ll end up a C.O. superstar, but here’s trying.”

[She is now! -Ed.]

“She has a date-sized tumour on her abdomen that needs removing, and she needs to be spayed. She also needs a major behaviour intervention, even though she is the most loving dog at home- as soon as she goes out on a walk she loses it. We believe she was abused. Our vet gave us a sad look when we brought her in to have her assessed, saying most people wouldn’t bother. We want to give her a second chance – and are asking the Internet for help! My sister’s a single mom and money is tight, but she loves MJ and can’t bear to give her up. We don’t know what might happen to her if we surrendered her to a shelter.”

“This is MJ’s Indegogo page, which has lots of photos and all her tiny details. (For example – she says OOOFOO! instead of woof.) All the money goes directly to her rehab costs – surgeries, the behaviour interventionist appointment, and her anti-anxiety medication. Thanks so much for taking the time to gaze into her tiny face.”

“I recently spent some time with a bat carer who had a little red flying fox in care (Little reds are rare in the area so she’s quite special.)”
