“All three are rescues, with Luna hailing from a racetrack in Alabama (courtesy of Greyhound Rescue, Inc.), Ginny from a boarding kennel in Virginia, and Harry from the side of a busy highway in Georgia. Despite being capable of speeds up to 40 mph, Luna much prefers to let the weenies do the running while she chases bunnies in her sleep.”

“I have been fostering a pregnant cat for our local animal control. Last night she gave birth to 5 healthy kittens. Here are a few photos of them – all less than a day old. Talk about cute overload!” -Julie S.

And They Call It Hippo Love

And they called it hippo love
They’ll never really know a hippopotamus
How a young hippo really feels
And why their love is so redonkulous…

Peeps, here is Jessica; Tonie and Shirley Joubert’s pet house hippo. She even gets a bedtime massage before being tucked in under her blankie, which is pink, of course. Gah!

“OK Cute Sorters – just found this one. Terribly ferocious man-killing/snorgeling beast of the wild.” -Barb and Paul, Concord Cuteaddicts

Lost in a Masquerade

This beguiling kitten wearing a black mask may look straight out of a Venetian masquerade ball or heading for Mardi Gras. But we know better, don’t we? (wagging finger)

“Oh, what I wouldn’t give for a holocaust cloak.”

“The adorable Miss Marvel, who just came to our shelter, Save the Animals Foundation. Love her mask! (I took the pic).” -Cathy O.

She’s The Pride Of The Neighborhood

Cuteporter Julie W. zipped this one in. “This is Josie, who was found wandering sad and lonely on an abandoned stretch of Sarasota road, about two weeks ago. We think she’s a Boxer/Dane mix, maybe 2-3 months old. She’s settling into her forever home with me, and thinks that mid-morning pee breaks are a chance to mug for the camera.”

Whoops, a PS from Jules:

“I TOTALLY FORGOT! There is a haiku to go with this photo:

Puppy in cool grass
Basking in the summer sun
WILL YOU PLEASE GO PEE”

“We rescued several caterpillars from marauding wasps, releasing them when they grew to butterflies. This one, named ‘Buttercup,’ decided to stick around on my shirt for a long time, giving my daughter a hug on the nose along the way, before we got her to find a plant she liked.” -Justin S.

THIS JUST IN: Kitten In Crocheted Mushroom Costume

Clipboard01 People, this one was emailed in from Moo sunning lazily on the beach in Hawaii (Must. be. nice.) The subject line said: “Aieeeeeee!”

Well, that’s good enough for me.

What we have here is a rescued kitteh wearing a Crocheted Mushroom Costume. The kitteh’s name is Wasabi-Chan- and she was rescued from an attacking crow! The complete story is here- use Google Chrome to get the translation.

Welcome to Kitty Mart 2, “The Rescute”

CO Peeps, my post about Convenience Store Kitties led me to a rescue story. Now, cats are known for thinking they can take care of themselves but, luckily, we know better don’t we? Yes we do, just as long as you let them think it was their idea. And so, a very kind peep decided to take care of the Convenience Store Kitty you will see in this absolutely adorbs video: (passes around tissues in advance)

Ultimate Momo ResQte + UPDATE!

8562869Calgary and Southern Alberta were struck hard by flooding last week. Cuteporter Leah H. fills us in on the story of Momo. “The small town of High River was particularly hard-hit. Kevan Yeats tried to escape in his truck with his cat, Momo. The flood waters overtook the truck and they had to swim for it.”
