Orkin’ In The Galapagos (Updated!)

Cue Kathleen C.: “Near the end of our Galapagos Islands trip, we went to a beach where legend has it, a giant colony of Blorp Pillows resides. We added some artistry to the scene & built a big old sand sculpture. Wouldn’t you know it, a sea lion comes floppin’ over and decides to have a nap. On our sculpture.

“Here is the colony. We R not kidding. All the way up and down the beach, the Blorp Pillows were “just lion around.” Our ears were ringing with Ork, Ork, Ork, but it was so worth it.”

“The main port was awash with sea lions. This one was stealing freshly-caught fish right off the market counter with a “Humph” on its face.”

“These two pups were rolling all up and down the beach, playing with each other. We saw plenty of wildlife but the sea lions were the best.”

Don’t Have a Cow, Man. Have Three.

Holy three headed Greek mythological creature, Batman! Triplet calves! Warm up the defibbermathingy, we are not equipped to handle this!

“Farmer Jon Appleby got the surprise of his career one week ago, when triplet calves were born on his farm in Wirral, England.”

“I couldn’t believe it,” the 44-year-old veteran farmer told TODAY.com of the rare phenomenon. “It was quite a shock.” When the cow went into labor, Appleby stayed close by for the first two births, then left, assuming the excitement was over. He returned an hour later, only to find one more baby by her side. “We’ve never had triplets before.”

Twins are somewhat common among bovine births, triplets and quadruplets are estimated at approximately 1 in 100,000 births.

Cat Clutter Got You Down?

They’re here and there, wandering wherever they like, sitting around in no particular order. Do you have seven cats all willy-nilly about the house? Sure, everybody does. Don’t despair! You may not be able to herd them, but you can organize them!

Cats Are Off-The-Wall!

Apparently we’ve been mistaken about walls. These cats show us that simply hitting a wall is no reason to stop going.

Andy’s sister, George, has figured out how to take corners at speed – run across the wall in a parkour fashion. She’s been doing this for months but it’s taken us a while to get it on video. At the beginning of the video she does her jump/climb of a doorframe – she does this when she’s happy (when you’re happy and you know it climb the walls). All the best to you CuteOverload folks for making the internets a happier place.” -Hilary P.

Snoozy Snacks

Oh noes! We look like four little sweet peas in a pod! What if a hungry giant comes along and noms us up?
