“I am submitting my poor little Diego. He lost a nail and had to wear this bandage. He gave me this pathetic look all the way home. I love your site and have been a fan since the beginning. Keep up the cute!!! -Yolanda M.
Folks, this is Boots. Boots had some tough times in her young life, losing her two rear paws in an unknown accident. Learn more (and donate) here!
She got those little blue booties when she was 6 months old.
The Denver Post says Boots “will undergo further surgery this summer to reshape the amputated areas of her legs, after which she will be refitted for new, more permanent prosthetics.”
Boot’s Hoomin Megan Brocato says, “She’s hoping for pink. After all, she is a lady.”

It’s the return of the return of the 80s! Big hair? Check. Leg warmers? Check. Shoulder pads? Check.
Platform shoes? Check!!!
In memory of the absolutely fabulous Brooke (R.I.P.) from Gladie Lauer’s blog.
“I planned to send you these pictures of my sweet little Reepicheep for ‘Rats, It’s Monday,’ but she passed away this past weekend (after a good, long and very spoiled life!) So maybe it’s too sad to share them on your site, but I still think she’s one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen! In the picture with her eyes closed, I had just been petting her head and she fell asleep. In the next picture, her eyes are just starting to re-open — she woke up and gave me a “put down the camera and continue petting me” look. I obliged!” -Kristin W.
Good grief! This Bebeh Sqwerl look a huge tumble out of a nest and got some hurts. City Wildlife in Washington DC is taking care of her.
Thanks to Michelle M.
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.
OK, suuure! (sprinkles lavender all around, runs off to light a few candles, hire a violinist, make snausage martinis, rawhide blinis…)

It’s desperate, man. I’m a refugee trying to escape from the crazy knitting lady of Knitzillastan!
