“Yes, that’s his name,” says Sender-Inner Sharon I. “Here we have Sir William Naughty McGrumplebun (aka Billy) doing his best impression of a hipster–check out that green mustache!! He’s about 6 years old with one brown eye and one blue eye! I rescued him after his family surrendered him at a high-kill shelter here in Memphis, TN. I also have a rescued dog named Pippin and another rabbit, Nutmeg, who I rescued 7 years ago. Thanks for always making my day Cute!”
About four months back we told ya about Buzz The Fuzz– he of the new haircut and new beginning. Now we get an update on Buzz-Meister’s progress!
“I just wanted to share some recent photos and let you know that he is doing great! He has an official website now, opened an Etsy store (all the profits from the store goes to Columbia-Greene Humane Society, the place that rescued him.)”

Andy W. wrote in to tell us about his motorcycle sidekick, Eddie. “Here’s a couple shots of our Beagle/Jack Russell mix shelter dog Eddie. We’ve had him for about a year and a half and this spring I decided to see if I could get him to ride in the motorcycle sidecar. After working him up to it slowly, he’s now a total pro at it. And as you can see by his posing, he knows he is just so DAMN smoove when he’s rollin’ with his dad.”
“It was tough to get him to wear his Doggles…took me about 3 weeks of treating him constantly while he had them on. Now he understands that’s part of the deal. If we ride, he’s gotta wear ’em. Also, he’s attached to the sidecar in two different spots on his nylon walking harness, one on the bottom of the sidecar and one on the roll hoop. He can move around freely but the attachments are adjusted so there’s no way he can jump out or be thrown out of the sidecar.”
“Here’s our ResQte Kitteh Jasper, doing his best to make Snorgling seem like a good idea. But it’s a trap! Touch the belleh at your own risk!” Submitted/photo taken by Lise C., Risk Taker and Loyal Servant.
Intrepid Cuteporter KB put some miles on the car and made a trip to Cat House On The Kings, and what did they have there but a lot of kittehs. And puppehs too!
