“Hello, I have a photo submission for your consideration! Pretty much illustrates the dictionary entry for “pounce,” no? The dog’s name is Jacques, and my sister had just adopted him via animal rescue. She had wanted to name him after a marine scientist, but she realized that he wasn’t quite brilliant enough for that, so she went with the explorer.” -Larry B. (Lyrics by Katrina & The Waves)

PSSST! Hey …

Hey, buddy. Yeah you. C’mere. Wanna buy a book? My name’s Pippin; purveyor of never-read books. Previous owner only used for impressing company.

I am also an honest used twist-tie dealer and lint ball merchant, and an “adorable ball of spaz”.

Come back! I’ll throw in a twist-tie for free!

“My name is Katrina, and I am a long-time fan of cuteoverload. My boyfriend, Alex, and I adopted an adorable ball of spaz named Pippin a few months ago from the Washington Animal Rescue League. He just had his 1st birthday a couple weeks ago and already has had an eventful life, including illness, broken bones, multiple homes, and 2 name changes. At 6 months old, while being hospitalized for a moderate URI, Pippin (then Champ) fell out of his cage and broke his left hind leg. His owner couldn’t or wouldn’t give the extra care he needed, so the little guy stayed at the hospital until the good people at the Washington Animal Rescue League took him in. Alex saw his picture on their website a Christmas, and we just knew, you know? We didn’t learn about Pippin’s (then Zap) medical history until we filled out an application to adopt him, but he’s so active you would never be able to tell his leg was ever broken! We chose the name Pippin after the character from Lord of the Rings, which is quite fitting- he gets into EVERYTHING. Including the bookcase. Especially the bookcase. Alex takes awesome photos and has managed to get a few shots of Pippin (in between energetic running spurts of kitten-crazy).” Check them out on Alex’s flickr.

Don’t Fly And Text At The Same Time, Or…

..you could BONK into a window. Everything is OK, though- so says Elizabeth C.!

“Little Beaky McBeakersons flew into my window and knocked herself out. There are a billion kittehs in my ‘hood so I consulted the wisdom of the Interwebs that suggested I pick her up and keep her cozy until she recovered. I’m happy to report Beaky McBeakersons is now recovered and has flown away to be with all her bird-buddies – but not without letting me skritch her teeeeeeeenny birdhead first! SQUEE! I’m from Toronto and the city has a great site about what to do when birdies hit the glass.”

Tobermory Batwinghands

And now everyone, for your Peg, the-kind-hearted-Mom-who-helps-Edward-Scissorhands, moment!

Fave, “My, those are your hands? Those are your hands! What happened to you? Where are your parents? Um… Your mother? Your father? Are you alone? Do you live up here all by yourself?” Frame:

“Each year vaccinated wildlife rescuers hand rear baby flying foxes. At the end of the hand rearing process, (usually at about 13 weeks of age) the weaned babies are sent to baby bat crèche where they learn appropriate battie socialization skills. Tobermory had wing tip injuries sustained on rescue and shared the hospital aviary with several others, including 2 little guys who still required a morning bottle feed. As I searched in the bedding materials for the recipients, (weaned) Tobermory snuck over and made off with one of the bottles. I was impressed with his stealth and ingenuity and the fact he knew the bottle needed to be upended for the milk to flow. He afterwards got a bowl of warm milk for his trouble. Tobermorey is a grey headed flying fox and after his injuries were resolved, he was released back into the wild with his 60 crèche companions.”

Super ResQte: Apple Moonbeam

Cuteporter Mal alerted us to this one. Apparently, this little critter was rescued in the woods by a hoomin who was taking photos, and the hoomin’s dogs adopted her.
