May the Foster Be With You

It’s spring time. It’s kitten time. It’s springy kitten time.


It’s time to spring for a kitten.

The End

Lil’ HamPants “Kokosanka” died on May 7. She was just over 2 and a half years old.

Before Kokosanka died, owner Pyza took her hamster out to enjoy the grass and dandelions one last time.

Twice Upon a Time in a Land Far, Far Away

Many strange legends are told of the land down under, but none so strange as the story of the koala twins. You see, koala twins are rare. Rarer than a wombat in a billabong, Ugg boots in the Outback, lips on a platypus, a dingo in the old gum tree!

It all began when the Aussie hinterland heard an unfamiliar sound…

It was a sound like one never heard before. Had we known how deeply we would squee, we would’ve obeyed our first impulse and walked away with our hearts intact.


Fair dinkum to Chris H. for this incredible photo essay.

The heartwarming back story: “Hi, It is not common for a Koala to bear twins, and regrettably in this instance the Mum was struck and killed by a passing car. Fortunately, the driver stopped, and took the mother to the local vet – where it was discovered she had these twins in her pouch. It’s so nice to see a story that has a happy ending in these troubled times that we live in. Taking care of others is a great way to forget about our own problems and difficulties!”

You See This Face?

This is the face of, “I would like to ask you a few questions regarding your whereabouts last night. Time to get up and follow me downtown.”

Meerkat Monday

When stranded on a deserted island,  make the most of it by staying cuddled up in a ball looking like a coconut. This will increase your chances of being rescued by passing rumrunners, if you’re lucky.
Thanks for rescuting us,  Tim M.

It’s The Leashed You Can Do

Pup is all, “Look into this sweet face. Now why don’t we dispense with whole leash thing, OK?”


Hi Peeps. This is a personal message I want to share about pet safety, inspired by my own pup being attacked this week on our doorstep by a neighbor’s unleashed dog. Stay safe! Last, but not leashed, thank you, Adonis (Chihuahua) and Tracy B. (photographaire’)!

Won’t you Be My Neighbor?

Mister Rogers?! Is that you?


Would you be, could you be, Ragnar P.?

Animals left alone in the 20 kilometer exclusion zone in Japan…

… need your help now.

Sender-Inner Jen writes: “Help us remind the government that the pets in the 20 kilometer zone are loved and wanted. They should not stay there to starve, nor should they be removed to go to animal control facilities. Rescue groups are being asked to help rescue pets for guardians that cannot get back to the area to retrieve their pets themselves. Please let animal rescue groups back into the zone now, to be part of the process of getting animals to safety.”

To voice your concern on this matter, go here. Donations to help animals of the Japan Tsunami can be made here.
