ResQte Of The Week: I Am Basil- Hear Me ROAR!

Oh, you might be wondering how little Basil got his name. Well, there’s a reason for that!

Grace M. writes, “Congrats on 10 years! That’s bananatown! Loyal reader, but never sent in a submission! Here is Basil, rescued from a grocery store in (Washington) D.C. last month where he was hiding under a display of fresh basil.” [*Note: Glad he wasn’t hiding under, say, the Clorox display. -Ed.]

“He is now starring in a very cute and very useful PSA from The Humane Society of the United States. It’s so important to be prepared to evacuate with your pets in times of danger, but who says it can’t be cute?! Those are my hoomin hands in the vid.”


I Haz Selfie???

“Here is a ‘selfie’ of my wonderful and somewhat ‘special’ big girl, Georgy. She does lots of weird things that get photographed so I’d love to see her big face out there somewhere! Photo taken by me (G. Herber). Thank you!”

Behold: Princess Nyanko

Speakers UP is Mandatory for this clip. If anyone wants one of her squeaks as a ring-tone for their phone, LMK.

(Tastefully Offensive.)

“Hey Honey? Have You Seen The Kitteh?”

“No, but if you do, it’s time for her checkup at the clinic. I made the mistake of saying ‘Vet’ rather than spelling out V-E-T and she took off like a shot.”

Caturday: Omigersh, He’s Staring Right Thru Us

“Dear Cute Overload, I have been a loyal fan of yours since 2005 — you got me through law school,” writes Ashley J. Finally this year, with my husband, we brought a little fur baby, Sebastian Fairmont, into our home.”

“Sebastian is a Scottish Fold and he is sweet as can be and a little purr machine, but he definitely throws around a bit of Cattitude when he wants to play!”

“I’ve included some pictures here, but we have more (and videos) on Sebastian’s Instagram account.”

“He would be so flattered if featured! Thank you for all of your daily posts! We love you!”

♬ You’ve Got A Friend In Me ♫

You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you’re miles and miles from your nice warm bed
You just remember what your old pal said
Boy you’ve got a friend in me
Yeah you’ve got a friend in me..
