Alas, this is not Gary the Capybara from Texas. But, what is it about capybaras? How do they get such awesome buds? What is their secret to adoration by everyone and everything everywhere they go?

It May Be Winter But Get Ready To Melt

Hollywood Hounds is not only a pet boutique and spa; they have been doing pet adoptions and rescues since 2007. Three months ago they took in an abandoned pair like no other whose forever home is now none other than Hollywood Hounds. Jacqueline Borum is captivating and inspiring as she tells the story.
Fave Quotes:

“They were found together. They are pretty much inseparable. The Dachshund absolutely loves this kitten, which has some health issues obviously.”

“We’ve had bonds between animals. I don’t know we’ve ever seen anything like this. It’s pretty special.”

“Every time Idgie goes out she gets a smooch. Someone’s constantly babying Ruth.”

“They pretty much share everything.”

“We’re making up for lost time for anything that they may have lacked.” “Now they’ve got about 14 Mommies here.”

Thanks to all the peeps who sent this in! Including, “I dare you to watch these two and not get teary.” -Phred’s Mom. And, “I’m sure you’ve gotten this one a bunch by now. . . but just in case. OMG THOSE LEGS!” -Nick D. More on this story from Huffington Post.

“Took this photo where my boyfriend goes horseback riding. The dog’s name is Lone Star and the kitty just follows her around like a little puppy. It’s a barn kitty but the sweetest cat I’ve every seen. Just wants to snuggle any animal that will let her/him.” -Tammy P.

C.O. Laundry Tips

Remember to separate puppies and toddlers before washing. Both tend to run like crazy, and will blend into each other if washed together.

Top o’ the Caturday to You

Wonderful story here of an Irish farm cat owned by Ronan and Emma Lally, from Clara, Co. Offaly. Last week, their cat, Della, surprised them by adopting three lost ducklings. Della surprised them again when they found she had three kittens born only the hour before.

Peeps. You know what this means? What on earth could three duckling and three kitten siblings be named?! Any ideas?
