They’re covered in tattoos and have scary biker names, but these bad boys were born to be mild. They’re the men of Rescue Ink, and as profiled in the New York Times, they speak out against animal abuse and find loving homes for abused animals all over the Big Apple. They’re not vigilantes, as they’re quick to point out, but they’ll get in an abuser’s face as much as the law allows — and they can be very persuasive.
Sniper Kitty mans his solitary outpost. Day fades into day, night into night, until time is meaningless, the horizon becomes the only world he knows, and there is only the vigil to define him; the ceaseless waiting for the enemy that may come at any moment — or not at all.
Then he sees it — the foe he has waited an aching eternity to face: The dreaded pen. Instinct grips him now, stoked by the fear that burns in the furnace of his soul, the sickening knowledge that only one may succeed, and one must fail. It is either bat — or be batted.
His prey draws closer. Each second hangs forever in the icy winter stillness. Small sounds echo in his ears now — a faint footstep, a rustling of leaves — speaking to a sense beyond sense, flowing into him, guiding him, telling him when the moment is right …
And then, without warning, he strikes! Channeling all his energy into one focused lunge, with devastating force he … he … heeee reeeeally likes tuna, he thinks. Tuna is delicious. Very tasty, indeed. He could go for some tuna right now, in fact. Because he really, really enjoys tuna. He likes tuna. He likes tuna a lot.
See, this is why cats never won a war, Mark J.
It’s a well-known fact.
Mo’ Kittens, mo’ problems. Just look at the WARS it starts.
You’ll recall we posted the third pic down some time ago, where one kitten was chomping on another. The rest of the series was too good to pass up.
And now for something completely different: A cat with four ears. Meet "Yoda," the first kitty equipped for quadraphonic sound. Adopted by a nice couple in Chicago, Yoda hears well and is otherwise normal, apart from a tendency to emit feedback when held too close to speakers. More pix and article at the Daily Mail.
Ears to you, Mary O.
You know, Pearl, [polishes off cigarette and takes swig of beer] if you could pass me my Diabeetus testing supllies after I polish off these potstickers, I’d appreciate it. [lick lick]
Rock Me Diabeetus! (and Gabrielle P.)
[eye roll]People, there is way too much proshness going on here with this ‘Fold.
Behold the ‘On-the-back-wide-eyed’ action and the ‘sure-I’ll-suck-on-your-fingie’ action:
And just in case you need an extra hit:
Friends, is your drab, everyday calendar putting you to sleep? Does your Sudoku have the same effect as Sudafed? Have you learned 365 new words — for "boring"? Then you need the mind-expanding power of the Cute Overload 2009 Desk Calendar, the only calendar scientifically engineered to safely stimulate the Cutanenal Lobe, that hard-to-reach area of your brain that makes you jump up and down and go "squeeeeeeeee!"
You may need the extra-strength version for that one, Zoe P.
STEP 4: You are the elitest of the elite. You are the eyeblink of death. You are death from above. You come from Mongol-flocking Siberia. Let the camera-clutching tourists squeal and flail and gibber. They are tender and delicious. You can afford to chill.
Thanks to the Minnesota Zoo and their new Minnesota Trail and Grizzly Coast exhibits! They’ve really been working on the place; even the run-through fountains in the play area are back. Sadly, they didn’t have any grizzly cubs for us to take pictures of, which was too bad because that would’ve been just about THE ULTIMATE Cute Overload post. They’re working on it, though.
