Wylee takes Widget under his wing

Sender-Inner Gina C. works at an animal shelter in New Hampshire, and sometimes her "work" comes home with her.

Meet Widget, a foster kitten she raised from 3 days old. Gina’s pup Wylee helped raise Widget too, obviously teaching him to snuggles,

"NOOOOOOO! (puff, puff) DON’T LEAVE ME!! (puff, puff) 

I HAVEN’T HAD WALKIES YET! (puff, puff)  AND IT’S ALMOST DINNERTIME! (pounds chest) 

AT LEAST TELL ME (puff, puff) HOW TO WORK (puff, puff)  THE CAN OPENER!! (puff, puff)  NURSE!! I NEED 50 CCs OF ADRENALINE AND A CHEW TOY, STAT!!"

... and don't forget the machine that goes 'ping!'

There was (sigh) nothing we could do, Amanda L.

I Love it When a Friendship Just Works

"Yeah, me and Allie are like, total BFF, because we have this understanding, see.  She always gives up the sunny spot when I walk into the room, she never complains when I use her for a pillow … yep, she knows who’s boss, and I totally love that about her."

(... right, and I'll be leaving you a little thank-you gift in your dog food later.)

See, that’s the key, Katherine N.—balance.

Nice bliss, Shonti Lynn.

This relationship just isn’t working.

We’ve given it a GOOD SHOT.

Somewhere in a foreign land, a pink plastic elephant is hurling up some snoring mices.

P.S. And Turn to the Right! [Police Officer voice]

Your Caturday Lullaby

It’s been a nice ole Caturday, People.

Let’s put ‘er to bed with this unusual Kitteh vid with blissful clenching paws. [Rule #29 in case you forgot.]

Sender-Inner ‘The Red Masque’, I’m not going to even ASK how this vid came about. Is that a lynx in that living room!?

P.S. Extra credit video is here, of an apparent Deer/Kitteh naptime interupted by a fallen battery pack. D’oh!

Sssssssshhh. Don’t speak.

[Fly speaking] Baybee, you may be the most poisonous Newt in North America, but you’re still all mine.

[Unbelievable KISSING SOUNDS]

Shhhhh. [Covers leeps]

Eating in MY field -- who does he think he is?

"That’s right, boss!  We’re goin’ in for the kill!  Now just leggo my collar and you’ll see some serious butt-kicking, yes sirree!  Watch me mop the floor with this no-good, pencil-necked …"

Hmmm, THIS should be interesting...

"Mnnnnyeeeessssss?  You were saying …?"

Ahmm, errrr ... well, that is ... what I meant to say was ...

"… so remember, shorty, (smack!) this is MY field! (smack!)  And now, if you’ll excuse me …"

Y-yes, sir ... T-thank you, sir ...

"Well, hey there, darlin’—How you doin’?  Whaddya say you ditch these dogs and join me at a little party I’m throwing?"

It's a stag party, naturally.

BONUS PHOTOS!  I couldn’t quite work these into my silly little story, but they’re too good not to share, so enjoy:

Nice composition in this shot!

It's a sniff-a-thon!

THAT … is five different flavors of awesome, Laura M.
