It’s World Hamster Day!

Got this email late Thursday from, um, Susan The Happy Hamster Lady!

Hey Cute Overload people!
Just giving you a heads up that April 12th is World Hamster Day! Google it if you don’t believe me. I hope you plan to celebrate appropriately. I suggest you stuff your cheeks full of goodies.

Susan (Happy Hamster Lady).

Far be it for us to ignore such An Important Holiday! So let’s roll out this Encore Presentaysh!

Every Monday Morning

should begin with cute and cuddly.

I LOVE Billy Joel!

Earlier today we showed you Ronan The Sea Lion at UC Santa Cruz, who knows a beat when he sees hears one. However, Mr. McToadersons wants to show you he’s got the music in him, too.

This Easter Bunny’s Teddy’s got QUILLS! If you see this guy come hoppin’ down the Bunny Trail, be careful how you pet him.

Zooniversity, naturally.

The title says it all, People. (Turn up the speakers- you’ll get some camera noise or whatever, but it’s worth it. Swear.)
