OMG Pedro Pony!!!11!11!!!!1

Ok, so you’re a tiny Shetland Pony named Pedro. You arrive at the Ebony Horse Club in Brixton, London U.K. So far, so good….whoops, wait. Not good. Problem: You can’t see over the stall door! (Left photo.)

Solution: you get a Pedroscope! (Right photo and below.)

The horse club contacted local design firm Print & Cut who created the Pedroscope. The club is attempting to raise funds to get him a proper sized stable.

You Own Two Cows. You Forget To Lock The Door. And…

…they decide to, um, MOOve in. It seems these two, named Five and Six, wandered into Pat Coston’s Guernsey, UK home while she was taking a shower.

So Bounce The Dog Went On The BBC…

..with his hoomin, animal shrink Dr. Roger Mugford. While the doc was prattling on, Bounce provides some commentary of his own.


And here is the original interview.

Ever wondered how a Blorpy Ham Ham can stuff all that…er, STUFF into his/her cheeks? The Beeb takes us inside…(say in a deep voice in a huge echo chamber:)

Cuteporter Paul P. knows of one that does!

This cat named Mango visits its local Tesco supermarket (below) in the town of Tiverton, Devon in England, has suddenly become famous, in an internet sort of way, after being featured in several UK newspapers,” he says. “She has her own cat house in the entrance of the store (below,) and her store fans have created a Facebook page for her.”

U.K. Ducksters: In-‘Tocks-i-cating

P1050486“Hi C.O., I hope this photo makes the cut for the ‘Yay winglets’ alone. P.S. – Isn’t it time we had a ‘downy juniors’ tag for our not yet feathered friends?” -Douri.

[OK. Now let’s take a look at those sentences. “Downy Juniors,” OK, I suppose that means fuzzy young guys. There’s your tag. But what does “Yay winglets” mean? Is that a UK thing? We have an email into Douri for clarification. -Ed.]

UPDATE! OK, here’s the “Winglets” thing.

“Happy body language – Winglets (you can’t call them wings) as if they were saying ‘Yay.’ Pictures taken in St. James’s Park, London, UK – the place of pigeon-eating pelicans and shamelessly greedy squirrels (recommended for anyone visiting London.)”

Simon Cowell* Saves Bebeh Swan!

[Quick overview- a Bebeh Swan is stuck in a fence- they do show this- but the rescue is amazingly Cute. Just letting you know. -Ed.]

A fellow named Simon Cowell* (not THAT one- this one is a nice guy whoops, “chap”) happens to be director of the Wildlife Aid Foundation in Surrey, UK. He got a call during dinner about the Bebeh Swan being stuck and all, so he drove right over to help out. The fence wasn’t the ONLY problem he had. And just wait ’til the Swan ‘Tocks Waggle at the end.

Kittehs. WEARING BABY SOCKS.

That’s what we have here. Despite the obvious Big J Cute Level, this is c/o London, England. That’s George and Elton below- just four weeks old.

These Pair O’ Prosh Knuckleheads were found abandoned :( and not doing well, in West London.

They now reside, for the time being, at the RSPCA Animal Hospital.

Quoting London24.com, “You may wonder about the outfits. Unfortunately these two naughty boys have a habit of suckling each other in their sleep and making themselves sore,” said Sian Anderson, a clinical manager at the hospital.”

Thanks to Arne for this one.
