Juuuuuuuust a Bit Outside

… and so with bases loaded, bottom of the seventh, things are not looking good for rookie pitcher Felix “Popeye” MacGuyre, who just might break the league record for bases walked in this game alone…

“Leopold is getting into trouble. He did this even though he had a full bowl of food on the floor just under the food shelf.” -Brandy M. on Facebook.
“Margarida (portuguese for Daisy) was rescued and is now waiting very cutely for someone to adopt her. She and her three sisters were found with only 4 days of life. Sadly she is the only survivor after a very critical period of treatment. But she is a fighter! A little flower that, thanks to Marcelo K. and Camila C., will bloom to a beautiful and happy life. They are from Novo Hamburgo, Brazil.” -Suzan A.

“This is the newest addition to our household, Wendell. He is about a year old and was adopted from the Missouri Humane Society. Wendell is a wild one and has a destructive streak. This photo amuses me because he looks like he’s observing destruction-aftermath!” -Amy G.

What’s in a Name?

“”Chewie” (we have a Star Wars theme going…). When he starts to gnaw on things (or people), we say, “Chewie no chewing!” Taken with an iPhone, by “me.” -Jason W.


“This is my brother’s cat, real name, “Buddy”. *I* call him Mr. Kittypants, because I think that’s his true name. This picture is him indicating that I’m clearly not paying enough attention to him. Also, here’s a link to all of my pics of him, since a good auntie takes tons!” -Carrie.


“Hi Cute Overload! I just adopted a kitten from the Windsor-Essex Humane Society. I think he is just the cutest thing ever. I named him George Michael (as in Michael Cera’s character from Arrested Development). He is the love of my life!” -Vanessa from Canada.


“Fred Baby the Tuxedo Cat.” -Avivit Bar-Yosef. Shot by Vivi.


“Hello! This is my exotic shorthair kitten, Celeste. She is super playful … and sometimes she sleeps with all legs akimbo.” -Tiffany. Photo by Alex.


“This is my 8 wk. old kitten, Zuko (named after ‘Grease’ character Danny Zuko), showing you his toe beans. He hopes you like them enough to put them on your website. -Holly J. (long-time fan of CO!)”


“Jarvis P. Weasley.” -Josh Norem, The Furrtographer.


“Look at this little guy. HE DOESN’T HAVE A NAME YET. Any suggestions?” -Julie.

What is Up With Cats and Yarn?!

Once upon a time not so long ago we squeed for I love this thread so much. The only way it could be any better would be to knit together a whole string of ‘em!

“Hello, Please consider publishing this cute video compilation of cats playing with yarn. Best regards, Vladimir.” Via YarnTube

Let There Be Cat

And God created Dog in His image, only backwards, and gave Dog dominion over the trees and hydrants. And Dog saw he was alone, and whimpered pitifully.

And thus did the Lord take a bone from Dog, even though he was still chewing it, and from it created Cat. And He spake into Dog, saying “Behold, I give thee Cat, to serve as companion and helpmate to thee.”

And Cat said “Whoa, screw that noise, pappy. I ain’t taking orders from nobody, let alone Captain Mange, here. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I gotta take a nap before bedtime.”
