This video from Edgar’s Mission is paws-itively amazing. Thanks to Kyle B. for sending, eh?

You Will Know Synchronicity

synchronized sleep team

“We got excited seeing all the synchronized photos from the archives. Our two Angel Kittehs Saffron and Marmalade always used to sleep in Synchronicity :-) We called them the synchronized sleep team. Now they are in kitty heaven together. :( We just passed the one-year anniversary of Saffron crossing the Rainbow Bridge and the six-month anniversary for Marmalade. We would be thrilled to see them on your site. (As a side note, we never realized how much we depend on Cute Overload to keep us smiling every day until you guys were temporarily offline recently. That felt like the longest day ever until The Cute was restored!*) Thanks for being the best website on the planet, Julia and John M.”

“When he gets in trouble, this is his ‘time out’ spot,” explains Redditor johneydepp.
