It’s National Cat Day!

DSC01297CHOTKMilton VonHalfstache III is VERY excited about this fact. Can’t you tell? He went out and got a ‘stache trim just for the occasion. Hope he can get his money back- lookin’ a little unbalanced there, Milty.

[*Update: Here’s a story about how to get a kitteh delivered to you today. Swears. It’s from noon til 4 in participating cities, so it looks like it’s still on for Phoenix, Seattle, and SF. From Jennifer H.]

Plum’s Beans

Toebeans Plum“This is Plum, who was born to a stray cat in my yard in the spring. She and her brother Milo are happily living with me now. Milo likes to stretch out when he sleeps, but Plum prefers the curled kitty with exposed toebeans position. She is perhaps the sweetest kitten I’ve ever had. So tiny!” -Stephanie F.

Furgus Needs A Name!

Furgus 4This little kitteh’s name- for the moment- is Furgus. (Which I rather like. But what do I know? Don’t answer that.) But– Furgus’s hoomin needs a better one, and wants yer help. It goes something like this:

My friend’s parents have adopted the attached this young lady- 3 months old, half Maine Coon/half Siberian. Apparently she already rules the house after 2 weeks! My friend is completely smitten by her, she steals their food, and the only name which has so far been put forward (by the friend) is “Dido, Queen of Carthage*” which her father has rejected as being “too pompous.” So I was wondering if I might appeal to the good readers of Teh Ovahlode for suggestions for less pompous-sounding names? Thanks in advance! :)” -TJ.

PS- “Furgus was my suggestion, but since it’s a little girl kitteh it’s not entirely appropriate.”

Violet- Our New Favorite Color!

Another Toesday is here, and we’re happy to welcome Violet for a return visit. According to her hoomin’s email (below,) Violet is happy about being on Cute Overload.

We’ll take her word for that.

“Violet was so excited to be on Cute Overload even though it was only her tail. I feel compelled to send you another pic of her in all her excited glory. So here she- pink toes, pink nose, pink ears and that one-eyed look. What’s not to love?” -Janey.

And We Have A Samba Sighting

Samba__122_One of the (IMO) truly great things about Cute Overload is that we get email images from all over the world. (Hmmm..nothing from Bratislava yet.) This just arrived from The Big G c/o Chris B.
The email is unedited except we deleted the home phone number..and we THINK the kitteh’s name is Samba..don’t we?

“Hello, I’m Samba! Samba came to the 2014 World Cup to us. Since it is our good luck charm. Gesendet von Zuhause!” -Chris B. 2014/GER. PS- You are so wunderfull!!!!”

Finnegan’s ‘Tocks -N- Beans

You can never beat that combo! “Finnegan hopes this ‘Tock shot is acceptable for ‘Tocktober….he even included a modesty tail,” writes Mary G.

The Nosevember Submissions Are Rollin’ Een!

FullSizeRenderThanks for all the great emails/images- keep ‘em coming! (Please?) This one just arrived: “We love his little white V! As someone on C.O. commented on a previous Bogart post, it’s like an arrow showing you where to Boop!” -Andrea S.

Caturday: Drink Up, Siskel!

Siskel The Kitteh has her OWN style when it comes to using the water thingy, thank you very much!

From Frank S., who says “This is my cat Siskel (her brother Ebert isn’t in this video.) She’s been drinking normally from this pet fountain for over a year now but lately she’s taken to drinking in other ways. She sometimes dips her paw and then licks it; other times she pretends she’s a mountain lion and drinks like this.”

Von Veek To Go*

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA(*Say it out loud using a Count Chocula accent while you look at the calendar. It’ll make sense.)

“Here is a picture of my cat Steve with his muffins up and tiny fangs out, being a goober. He is named after Steve McQueen, thought he is not quite as suave or majestic as his namesake, he is just as cool.” -Patrick B.
