Caturday: GEM, Guardian Of The Fridge*

FullSizeRenderTracey says “Hi Cute Overload. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. This is my kitty Gem (older sister of Tyson and Magnum) guarding the fridge and letting me know I don’t need any leftovers. You can use whatever caption you would like. Love your site.”

[*Note: My wife and I had a discussion about the proper abbreviation for “refrigerator.” She says it should be “Frig.” I found this online: “‘Fridge’ is a contraction of Frigidaire, one of the first and most popular refrigerator manufacturers. It just became a common slang word.”

Just Don’t Even Think About It, Selby.

I Don’t Get No Respect

[I sit here all day long, just charging up my Zen and soaking up some Solars- and these little knuckleheads think I’m their own personal jungle gym. They might be right.]

Headline THIS: You’re Putting That WHERE?

ELLA[*Update 1:11pm PT: Thanks to Ella for the header and everyone else who commented. Stay tuned for Thursday, 6am PT. -Ed.]

Say, time for another edition of “Headline THIS!” “Her name is Polly Hill, after a botanical garden in Massachusetts,” writes Christina D. (Yep- we gave the dog a last name.) Here she is at her first Vet appointment (getting ready for her Puppy shots) with my Mom (Judith) on the left and a Vet Tech on the right. I took the photos last Saturday @ Adobe Animal hospital in Palo Alto, CA. The dog…was not having a fun Saturday night. Hope you think she’s as cute as I do!”

So- you know the score. Polly OBVY knows what’s about to go down. Write up your best header and we’ll run our fave at 1pm PT! (FYI the tech used an ear thermometer.)

[*Note: We’ll have an extra speshyul edition of Headline THIS coming up on Thursday- @cuteoverload has a bit o’ info on that. Just sayin.’ -Ed.]

Let’s Refresh Our Rules, Shall We?

LucasRepeat after me: Rule of Cuteness #32: If you’re caught doing something bad, it’s cute.

“My brother Ricardo’s Yorkie Lucas doing his best “I didn’t do it” look against clearly unfounded accusations of digging holes in the house plant pots. No need to worry, there are no toxic plants for dogs in the house. Love love love your site. Thank you!! Mariana P., (Oporto, Portugal.)”

Why Won’t It Wave Back To Me?

[I haz a friendship for it but it won’t wave back, OK I guess I’ll have to go check things out. Oh-oh, Cheryl got the camera out- that means EVIDENCE.]

(“You’ve featured Gilbert a few times, most recently a couple of weeks ago. Thought you might enjoy this! There’s Paws Up involved: even a Baroo!” -Cheryl.)

These Boots Were Made For Walking Sitting

unnamedCat Slaves: Have you ever experienced one of those showdown moments? Where The Feline draws a line in the sand (or in this case, the sink) with his/her demand? This is one of those times, from Jane H.:

“Thank you so much for posting about the Tour de Corgi in Fort Collins. We loved your post, brilliant as always, they captured the wonderfulness of the experience! My mom is in awe of your website (as are we), she’s 85 and thinks it is delightful! Now that I’ve come down from Corgi Mania, I realized I haven’t been paying as much attention to our kitteh, Boots, (also known as Booter Buttskis or BooterTooterRooter) as she expects. So now she is getting most of the attention and all is well once again according to her: Here’s Boots in the kitchen sink waiting for someone to turn on her drinking fountain.”

WHO Had A Good Day? WHO Did? YOU Did!

But I gotta ask about my sweatpants, guys. Who’s gonna ‘fess up here?


The McBearersons just moved in day before yesterday, and ol’ Mr. Frenchie has a problem with those lil’ cubs of theirs. Go on, GIT!

They didn’t seem to take the hint, either.

I Mean- Could You LOOK More Guilty?

20141001_140857Let us introduce you to Benjamin Button. Judging by the look on his face, he’ll be spending ‘Tocktober in the sTOCKade to pay for his misdeeds. Somewhere, a roll of toilet paper cries out for justice. “In honor of ‘Tocktober, I rounded up some of my favorite pictures of my Wheaten, Benjamin Button, or Benji for short. I’ve been a fan for a long time but this is my first submission. Thanks for always brightening up my day! Sincerely, Jackie S.”
