Let’s Salute Theo!

Peeps, while we celebrate our cherished United States veterans today, who better to salute than our very own Theo, former Cute Overload Moderator, who will be leaving Qalat, Zabol, Afghanistan and coming home in a matter of weeks.

We salute you, Specialist Durbin! (Or are you a Colonel now?) See you soon, Sir!

Nose to Nose in Nosevember

It’s good to get out and try new things, meet new folks and smell new smells. You never know, the next creature you sniff could be your new best friend.

Milk of Almost-Human Kindness

I thought living in the zoo would be a sweet gig—tire swing, all the fruit you can eat. But nooooo, they make you work for a living around here!

Coo Coo Ca Choo

I didn’t know how cute walruses could be. No wonder Paul wanted to be one.

Check out little Mitik, who was lost and orphaned off the coast of Alaska, but rescued by a fisherman and taken in by Alaska Sealife Center.


Looks like I’m not the only one who has a new found appreciation for walruses. According to alert reporters over at Grist:

Walruses are the new “it” animal. They’re a towering masterpiece of ugly-cute — they like to snuggle and head-butt and play with a ball, and they’re covered in puppy fat, but they also look like Wilford Brimley! Plus, they have mustaches, which hipsters are still inexplicably into. Someone start an Etsy shop putting walruses on things. It’s gonna be huge.

First Snorgle

I walked her home from the playground. We were chatting. It was getting late. I knew I should go. Then, she looked at me with her amazing brown eyes. I felt my heartbeat racing. We hesitated, then, it happened.

But I Don’t Wanna Leave the Petting Zoo!

I’ve finally found someone who understands me! Someone who sees the miracle in each blade of grass and marvels at the intricacy of leaves as they dance in the wind! Someone who feeds my very soul! Don’t make me give that up, I beg you!

Kittens Who Love

This kitty loves to share. Doesn’t matter that she’s sharing a meal with a reptile. It’s nice to chow down with friends.


This kitty loves to make his friends feel good by giving some Swedish massage. Kitty knows that it’s especially good for raising the level of oxygen in the blood and increasing circulation and flexibility while easing tension.


Um. This kitty may love too much.


That is some real good lovin’ via Attack of the Cute, photographer SMIKH via Pixdaus and photographer Stas Semashko via Pixdaus.
