And WHY Do We Call It “Toesday,” Marcel?

Marcel is here to let you know. Beans UP, buddy!

“I am a long-time Cute Overload lover, first time submitter! I am a vet working at a practice in downtown Toronto. A couple weeks ago we helped rescue a tiny kitten (we named him Marcel) who was found as a stray in the City. Marcel is thriving now after being treated successfully for a parasite infestation and secondary infection. I hope you enjoy the video!” -Dr. Kimberly H., DVM

Caturday: My, Milo! What BEEG EYES U Have!

milo“This is Milo, he’s a rescue we adopted from McHenry Animal Outreach almost four years ago. In this picture he is playing one of our cats favorite games, making the bed. He really hopes you pick him to be a part of Cute Overload!” -Jessica M.

The Grate Escape!

It seems Mom and her Mini Ducksters were waddlin’ along when PROBLEM they all drop through the storm grate. WHOOPS! However, a nice fellow comes along for the rescue!

What’s Russian for “Get the Crisco”?


  1. Start video
  2. Place finger in cheek
  3. At 1:14, make “pop” noise
  4. Repeat at 1:30

Yes, it’s a prairie dog stuck in its own hole. Time to hit the treadmill, Chuck.

Happy Heffalumps (And Their Friends!)

A sequel to Tuesday’s Hula Hoopin’ Heffalumps, also from Elephant Nature Park, an elephant rescue and rehabilitation center in Chiang Mai, Thailand. As the video says, “This video was inspired by Pharrell Williams ‘Happy’ to show how happy animals of different species can live together peacefully.”

Right ON. (Do people still say that?)

Hula Hoopin’ Heffalumps

The video says Faa Mei The Heffalump is playing with a Hula Hoop, which I remember as a toy plastic hoop…which this isn’t. (Well, maybe it USED to be before they got to it.) And a bonus- wait for the sweet surprise at the 1:11 mark. These two live at Elephant Nature Park, an elephant rescue and rehabilitation center in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Neema, Jake, And Ella’s Bathtub Selfies

Cuteporter Regula E. checking in on a Wednesday night: “I’m submitting some photos of our cats past and present. We had two long-haired kitties for many years, Fritzi & Ella. Both were rescued as kittens from a Louisiana animal shelter. We lost Fritzi in September 2012, and Ella (below) in September of 2013.”


“After a couple of months we took the trip to the Chicago Anti-Cruelty Society where we came home with Neema (black and white short-hair) and Jake (orange tabby.) This photo is of them attempting to use Jedi mind tricks to get me to put more food in their bowls.”


Mom Taxi XXXIV: We’ll Get There, Lizzie

[It might take awhile, but we’ll get there. In the meantime, ease up on the reins, OK?]

Lizzie The Bearded Dragon plays cowgirl with Rambo The Sulcata Tortoise at the Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary.

What’s Better Than ONE Whackadoodle Kitteh?

An entire roomful, of course.

“As kitten guardians know, every day with kittens is a circus…but this one is special. Not only did the video win First Place at the Just for Cats Film Festival in Vancouver, it highlights the awesome Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue. So two thumbs up.” -From Karen (aka Sasha’s Mum) in Vancouver.

Two, Tired

14836778162_ed937b4778_kFlickrer Mark Peters rolls out the story: “Last week, Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary accepted a mother pig and her babies into the fold. PETA rescued this family from a trash-filled pen in a trailer park in North Carolina. Now they can munch on grass, sleep in a straw-filled bed, and live out their lives together with lots of space to roam in, mud pools to cool off in, and a family of more than 40 other pigs to socialize with.”
