From the YouTube video: “Sadie is a 6-year-old German Shepherd/Border Collie cross who was adopted from an animal shelter in 2009. She loves learning new tricks and recently learned to play the piano. Watch as she turns it on and plays a few notes! Filmed in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.”

Don’t worry- the bigger Buns will handle all the Easter Egg delivery tomorrow. You’ll be busy a year from now, OK?
“An orphaned baby Snowshoe Hare being fed by the good folks at Woodlands Wildlife Sanctuary in Minden, Ontario Canada. They care for wild babies like this until they’re old enough to be released back into the wild to live out their happy Bun lives!” -KB.
Ain’t nothin’ like it. (*Make sure speakers are UP.) Folks, this is Fiete. He lives on a sanctuary in Germany. This was a good day for him.

It’s late, time to shut ‘er down for the evening (someone’s already done that) but we wanted to tell you about Chief! Sorta a Toesday Preview. (Wait. It’s already Toesday on the East Coast. And all over Europe and stuff. OK.) “It’s exhausting being newly rescued, but I think Chief is settling in! My husband and I adopted 4yr old Chief Saturday through the wonderful folks at Southwest English Setter Rescue. Chief sprinted at least 4 miles Sunday, so he’s taking a well-deserved rest. Thanks for your consideration and for all the joy you provide daily!” -Kate R.
Meet Aperil. Aperil likes to wear a hat. Aperil then bumps into things.
And so it goes.
Wally’s her name (we checked into this)—The Qte is her game. KB sent these in and says, “This 2.5 week old cutie pie was rescued Saturday! (She’s now a happy bottle baby at a loving, local foster home.) Her mom is feral (wild) and gave birth to a litter of kittens in someone’s attic. In the process of moving them to a new location, this little girl was dropped by her mom down inside a kitchen wall where the mom couldn’t reach her. The retired homeowner tore a hole in his kitchen wall to rescue the kitten …but mom was long gone. So we stepped in to take over.” (This is not my photo or my text. The good folks at The Cat House on the Kings asked me to pass it on to you.”)
“My partner Gordon and I rescued a friendly stray cat off the street about a year ago. He tolerates us calling him Thermilvden (Below, black and white tuxedo, and a name made up over 30 years ago.) As soon as we heard about N.Y. getting a Cat Café we booked an appointment at the Meow Parlour to find a friend for Thermilvden.”
“My partner didn’t get to visit the Meow Parlour at first, so upon a second visit we ended up choosing Julian (Featured photo, and next three photos below,) the star of the Café. After hearing about all of his antics he sounded like the perfect match. We felt guilty taking the best cat, but we knew we’d be giving him an amazing home.”
“We were ready to introduce the boys slowly but it was obvious that through a crack under the door they wanted to meet right away. We opened the door and it was instant bromance. They ran up and down the hallway for hours on end. Julian (we renamed him Morf, short for Anamorphic since we are in the film biz and he has a knack for stretching out pretty flat) has brought instant peace and joy to our home.”
“Our family now feels complete. The boys love to snuggle, clean each other, and wrestle all over the apartment. It turns out that coincidentally the NY Times had done a write up* of the Meow Parlour the day before we decided to take him home. The article ended begging someone to adopt Julian. We saw the article the day after we brought him home!”

Remember the story of Schoep & Unger? This photo struck a chord around the world.
And now, after Schoep’s passing, his hoomin John Unger has decided to adopt a ResQte Puppeh. According to the Schoep & Unger FB, Bear is a 1 year old, 70 lb. Akita/Shep/Lab mix. Well, he’s 70 pounds today. That’s gonna change.
