One Hamster’s Last Day on Earth

Poor leetle “Bułeczka” the ham recently spent her last day on earf. Before she passed on, her owner Pyza took her out one last [sniff] time!

To her favorite park…

Favorite tree…

Favorite dandelion patch…

And then there was a funeral where the Guinea Peeg came to pay respects.

Barooooooooo! (crying sound)

Rest in peas, little ham! ♡Bułeczka♡’s last day out…, ♡Little Bu♡ and the big world., ♡Bułeczka♡ – asleep in the Sun…, Balbinka saying Goodbye to ♡Bułeczka♡…, Balbinka & ♡Bułeczka♡ ~ sisters.., by pyza*.

If you turn this pic 90 degrees…

…it’s a much happier story:

Sandra from Luxembourg saw this lil’ Dude at a Zoo in Amnéville.

I feel a shiver down my back!

Ever get that feeling?

Brrrrrrrrrr!!!

[Pupils... dialating!]

Heather S., I’m getting creeped out!

You’re Soaking In It

I went looking through the archives for a photo which could satisfactorily convey a message of “Thank the Gooshy Goddess THAT ordeal’s finally over.”  Et voila, from July 14 of ’07.  Check’s in the mail, Commissioner Shulman.

No, I DIDN’T enjoy my FIRST BATH, actually.

[bares claws and swipes in air: Ehn! Ehn! Ehn!]

And, NICE leg in the background, Shroom V.!

Nooooooooooooo!

Gawker is reporting that Twitter is reporting that Martha Stewart is reporting that Lil’ Genghis Khan, Martha Stewart’s Chow Chow pup, and grand-son of the late Paw Paw has died!

The poor thing apparently perished in a fire at the breeder’s.

How unfortunate and very, very sad… :(

Don’t Ask

"Seriously, you don’t wanna know. I’ll spare you the details.  You’re welcome. All I’m gonna say is that whatever genius builds a chalet right in the path of a ski jump can fix his own damn roof."

But I got this lovely little sock at the hospital.  So there's that.

Talk about de agony of de feet, Isobel L.

Rest in Proshness

Dearly befuddled, we are gathered here today to pay our respects to one of the cutest roadside memorials we’ve ever seen: This lovely floral presentation in honor of… a squirrel?!

Perfectly normal from a distance, and then... Wha-HUH?

And not just any squirrel, but true sports nut, with a passion for baseball, basketball and hockey.

Although the referees kept ejecting him for nibbling the puck.

Found in Sacramento by Angela B. Can any other Sacto peeps shed light on this?

[UPDATE: Working from Beth's and Ellen's tips, I think I've located the white building with the tiled roof in the background of shot one, which supports their theory about the address.  Click here to see the building in Google Street View. -- Mike]

Combine liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker with cracked ice and shake well. Strain into a chillin’ martini glass and garnish with lemon twist kitty head.

A couple of those little onions would be nice, too.

We maded you a martini, Sandy B., but we drinked it.
