This just in: Squirrels have tongues

It’s TRUE, People! This anerable squirrel has his tongue slurping out. It’s so nice of Patty the Wildlife Rescuer to hold the water faucet on for him, it’s it?

The 300 Kilometer Hamster

OK, this guy needs a friggin’ shout out.

Let’s pan over to the Netherlands where Mathijs van der Paauw asked himself the following questions: Have you ever wondered how far and how fast a hamster runs on her treadmill? To find out, Mathijs created a custom HamsterTracker™. Allow me to introduce you to "Lucy" (1.0 and 2.0), the hamster who has clocked 300 kilometers on her hamster wheel.

Check out the stats!

He includes Lucy’s treadmill graphs and water consumption, food expenses, total distance, How to make a treadmill sensor—it goes on and on. This is her treadmill, below:

Picture of my hamster Lucy, beside her treadmill.

He also has some delightful treat recipes:

"The recipe is simple:

  • Wash apple and some fresh parsley
  • Cut out a piece of apple, preferably dice shaped. And don’t use a large knife! like I did. Ask help if you’re under 40!
  • Use a toothpick to punch a small hole in the apple
  • Place parsley in the just made hole
  • Serve immediately! (So the apple is still fresh)"


Thanks for sending in, Lee B.

Squirrel Jr., reporting for duty

Sanna "Fantasty Fan" P. sent in delightful Flickr photos of beady-eyed squirrel Jr. She also has some delightful white fluffy pup photos that are well worth the click for a look-see!



Thank you, Sanna P.!

Prepare for your brain to be invaded…

…by this impossibly redonkulous Guinea Pig Philosophy of Life Song. I hesitated to post this, but this penetrating, horrible-arrangement-of-a-song-with-no-real-ending creepy-crawled into my brain over the weeks, begging to be posted. I have annoyed all peeps within earshot—completely. And just what the hell is "Timothy Hay" anyway!?


Bart T…. Bart T…. Bart T… Look what you’ve done. Oh and yes, I can "dig it."

Just the Two of Us

OK, maybe I’ve had too much wine tonight, but this *really* makes sense right now, and I’m crankin’ the Bill Withers:

I see the crystal raindrops fall
And see the beauty of it all
Is when the sun comes shining through
To make those rainbows in my mind
When I think of you some time
And I want to spend some time with you


Just the two of us
We can make it if we try
Just the two of us, just the two of us [mice singing backup]
Just the two of us
Building castles in the sky
Just the two of us, you and I


We look for love, no time for tears
Wasted water’s all that is
And it don’t make no flowers grow
Good things might come to those who wait
Not to those who wait too late
We got to go for all we know


Just the two of us
Just the two of us
We can make it, just the two of us
[mice singing backup]
Let’s get together, baby

Just the two of us
Just the two of us
We can make it, just the two of us

Just the two of us

We can make it, just the two of us
[again with the mice]


[Repeat last two lines to fade]

Paul S. Here’s to you!

I reached for a cotton ball and got this instead

How do you expect me to clean my face with this?
