“♬ Why Can’t We Be Friends…♫”

This Budgie REALLY wants to be friends with the tiny Persian kitteh- though a couple of love noms earns him a couple of whacks in return- but the birdeh will not be denied, following the kitteh over the couch.

Why can’t we be friends?

Do We Detect A Slight Baroo There?

5 Jess 57“‘Calico Cuteness and ‘Tortitude’ at The Cat House on the Kings,” says Harvie Ruth S. Who are we to disagree? P.S. Did you know they have a Live Kitteh Cam? Dive right in.

Hei, Momo!

IMG_1158“Momo the 10 week old kitten, all floofy ears and all, just wanted to stop by and say hi! This is her, taking a break from her busy day of attacking feet to watch some cows on TV. (Yes, seriously.) And then, the best part of the day, snuggles with best bud and sister-from-another-mother, Lotta.” -Ragnhild K., Norway. PS: “Lotta and Momo would both like to remind people to adopt, don’t shop.”

ResQte Of The Week 2: Wynken, Blynken, And Nod

CIW-1957“Wynken (above,) Blynken (next photo below,) and Nod (third photo) will be available for adoption (we’re in Half Moon Bay, Northern California) in a couple of weeks. This is them at four weeks old. The last picture features my husband trying out for the Men of Cute Overload calendar. More accurately, he was trying to meditate in the room where we’d stashed the kittens (the resident dog was not a fan,) and Wynken climbed up onto his hoodie and went to sleep.”


“Eventually I had to go in and rescue him (the husband, not the kitten) so he could go to work. Not before taking a picture, of course. Companions In Waiting and I would be delighted if our batch of babies made it onto your site.” -Carina M., Webmaster and sometimes photographer, Companions in Waiting.”

[*NOTE: You can meet their adoptable cats & dogs at the next adoption fair, day after tomorrow (Saturday) at Kibbles & Gifts, Half Moon Bay from 11am – 2pm PT. -Ed.]


[UPDATE From Carina: “I just spoke with our director and it turns out the kittens will be making their adoption fair debut this weekend, and they’ll be attending fairs until they are adopted. They won’t be ready to go to their new homes until the end of the month, but we’ll be accepting adoption applications starting this weekend. In addition to these three guys, there is another litter of three kittens the same age that will also be at the fairs. And of course, adult cats and dogs as well.”]

Everybody Needs A Hug Now And Then

That’s going to do it for the week (and the month- June is upon us!) here at Cute Overload. We’ll leave you (for now) with this terrific video of…KITTEHS HUGGING STUFFEHS.

ResQte Of The Week: Purritos To GO, Please

17670918156_837b475c06_bThe Best Friends Animal Society in Salt Lake City (also an L.A. location) has taken in 500+ kittens in the last two months, and they need homes!

“Sometimes you have to go Cute to raise awareness about an important issue. We’re thrilled the campaign is getting so much attention and hope that we’re inspiring people to take action,” said Eric Rayvid of BFAS in an email to Cute Overload.

“If you’re looking for a new pet, we urge you to adopt.”

“If you can’t take a new pet into your home, volunteer at your local humane society.”

“If you don’t have the time, donations are always needed to take care of homeless pets in your area.”

Won’t work.
