Mom Taxi XI: Ribbit?

Webbed thumb goes up, a frog goes by
It’s nearly bedtime and here am I
Hitchin’ a ride, hitchin’ a ride
Mom’ll get me home for my morning flies. (Apologies to Vanity Fare.)

“My girl Maria took this photo and started making up this silly song. I knew I had to send this to CO for the Mom Taxi files. I like how the lil’ guy’s eyes seem to be closing sleepily. I remember when we were kids we used to pretend to fall asleep on the couch just to get Mom or Dad to carry us to bed! Thank you for doing what u do so well. Cute Overload makes my day every morning!!!” -Joy M.

Mom Taxi VIII: Rufus

Cuteporter Amanda M. zipped us off this email. “I adopted Rufus in December 2011. He was rescued by the Georgia Humane Society at age 1 from a high kill shelter the day he was supposed to be put to sleep. I found him after he was in his foster home and he was really sick. Turns out he has balance issues and can’t see very well. He’s silly. It would make his day to be on Cute Overload!”

[Rufus, consider your day made, my friend. -Ed]
