All You Can Eat Sprouts Buffet, Again?

Mom’s all, “You will eat your sprouts and you will like them or I will give you the Capybara Mom Stink-eye.”

Capybara kiddos, “But Moooom, we’re smaller and can run faster!”

Hope You Had a Happy, Heavenly, 4th Birthday, Gary.

This is the incredible, Gary the capybara, who lived large and in charge with his devoted hoomins and many furry friends in Texas.

His hoomins made a big deal over big ol’ Gary but they didn’t make a big deal about his big underlying health issues, quietly tending to his medical needs and taking him to specialists many miles away to care for him. And Gary was doing really well, and lived longer than they thought he might, nearly almost making it to his 4th birthday, yesterday, March 10.

Gary became their heart and soul and now, he lives on in their heart and soul, and in ours too.

Full memorial to Gary on Capybara Madness. Hold on to your heart, it is quite a story.

Alright, today we’re going to turn our favorite capybara into, extra special capybara with toppings!

Let’s start with the perfect capybara. Then, we add a teaspoon of rattie for extra zing!

We’re gonna top that with a coating of monkersons, for extra warmth.

Next thing we do is add a dash of Mr. Beady Eyes. There it is!

Capybara and Cowbird
Let’s see what else is on the shelf. Hmm, a leetle schmear of bunneh for texture.

Um, Capybaras, Who’s Your Agent?

Alas, this is not Gary the Capybara from Texas. But, what is it about capybaras? How do they get such awesome buds? What is their secret to adoration by everyone and everything everywhere they go?

The Zen Of The Capybara

Grasshopper, to achieve total peace and enlightenment, you must become one with The Capybara.

Once you have done so, you too will know the true meaning of Squee.

[Now, is it ZEN or is it TAO, like 'The Tao of Pooh.' Anyone know? -Ed]

From Callie H. who says: “I noticed that there is a shortage of capybara posts on Cute Overload! [True! -Ed] Here are some super cute capybaras enjoying some spa treatments.”
