Some of you are already saying “NOOOOOOOO”

Peeps, you got your comment controversies, y’know, sometimes it seems like every other post. Then there’s your capital-C Commentroversy, at which point you’ve pretty much seen it all.

THEN, along comes Buddy. And this hepcat was never emo. :lol:

Hefty kitteh “Buddy” is a [ahem] a couch straddler and paw dangler.
The internet is just weird.  Fact of life.
The sender-inner’s sister was kind enough to have a local artist CAPTURE the REDONKULOUSNESS by making a miniature version of “Buddy” too. Hee!

Oooooof!
You might think folks would have better things to do.  I might agree.

Kate V., somehow I suspect you’re not the ONLY ONE with a couchstraddlerpawdangler. Nice work.

Summer in the Suburbs

It was a gorgeous, gorgeous day yesterday.  Nice breeze, no rain, big back yard full of family & friends & food.  Even the deck was in good shape, finally.

Sadly, though, not everybody was allowed outside... ;)

Oh, I hear you back there. Making “kitty kissing noises” trying to get my atten-shons.

Well go ahead and beg. Caturday was yesterday. You’ll never make it up to me.

...and on a LEASH, no less.  I ask you!

Ali B. Good luck — [shaking head]

Everyone Knows It’s Kitty

Hey, kids! What’s fun for a girl and a boy? Clicking that button to the left, then starting the video, that’s what.

Could You Please Hit the Snooze Hunch?

Really, I’m too tired, and besides, you’re the one who wanted the “Hunchback of Notre Dame clock/radio with authentic bell sounds,” so just give Quasimodo there a pat on the back and shut that thing off, thanks.

Harrumph Day

Caturday? HAH!! Saturday is the new Wednesday!  It’s like “Hump Day”, only different.  Remember, you heard it here first on Cute Overload — the internet’s premier cutting-edge authority on what day it isn’t.  And it certainly isn’t September 18, 2008.

In the remote plains of Wazoolooland, we come upon an all-too-familiar scene: A fierce camel locked in mortal combat with the small but wily plastic bucket.

Ah, we meet again, my old nemesis ...

Saracen pig! Roman cow! Take THIS! And THIS!

For the bucket, its only chance is to raise its defenses and hope his adversary tires …

... there's the kick, aaaannnd -- GOOOOOOAAAL!!!

Yeah, I'd like to see that lame-o walrus pull this off.

Alas, even the bucket’s tough protective shell is no match for the camel’s ruthless onslaught …

No, we're not making a new "nomming" tag.  Please stop asking.

… and with one final bite, the struggle is over.

FOR GREAT JUSTICE!! ***CHOMP***

Victorious, the mighty camel cries out his call of triumph.

THIS ... IS ... SPARTAAAAAAA!
We’ll be back with more of “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom” after these messages.

They sell bucket insurance, by the way.  I'm just saying.

Yes, sir, Gelosia … that’s your “Baby.” ( More photos here )

Caturday Schmaturday

Peeps, I am sooooo over the whole “caturday” deal. Puhlease. What we need is a nice shiny SATURDAY MARSUPIAL SNOUT. From two-thousand-seven!

Well-intentioned Rebecca M. assures moi that Opossums are PERFECTLY wonderful and not the slightest bit evil, and sends this photo as proof.

Rebecca M. claims:

-They RULE in the Moist Nosicle category.
-They have a thumb without a nail on their back feet.
-They have elaborate whiskers.
-Their ears are pink when they’re babies and turn black as they grow up.
-They CARRY LEAVES CURLED UP IN THEIR TAILS – Come ON!
-And let’s not forget they carry their babies in a pouch – North America’s only marsupial

Hmmm. I’m thinking. I’m thinking… LET ME THINK! [shifty eyes]

Morpheccino

Go ahead.  Click my nose.  I know you want to.

It’s Friday. Long weekend ahead. Cheers! ;)

Let’s plant a hedgehog tree

1. Soak hedgehog seed overnight so ears fully moisten
2. Find sunny spot in garden
3. Hedgehog seed will burrow right in and plant itself.

4. Wait 2 years for maximum quillage. Feed well.

The Mother of All Encores

This may not have been our first-ever Interspecies Snorgling post, but it’s definitely a CO Classic: Holy inter-species bonding!”
(Also, have you called your mother yet?  You know, she’s done a lot for you.) ;)

Here’s the deal. “Finnegan” the squirrel was found under a tree in Renton WA. Finnegan was brought to the home of Debby “Sure I’ll take care of him!” Cantlon for care. Meanwhile, Debby’s papillion pup “Mademoiselle Giselle” (I am not making this up) decides she can help out too, and brings Finnegan in with her new puppies. Finnegan proves to be one sweet squirrel, riding mosh pits of puppies and cuddling with his littermates.

WHEEEEE

Riding the puppy mosh pit

aw crap I dropped my damn keys... guys?

Cuddle Central™

“Dood. wot’s up?”
