“CO Doesn’t Feature Enough Owls”

That’s what a reader wrote. Well, we appreciate the feedback, and consider that gross injustice FIXED right here and now.

First off, here’s a Saw-Whet Owl cooling off at the Blanford Nature Center in Grand Rapids, MI. Video sent in by Cuteporter Karen.

Then, we got a lengthy email from the owl eagle-eyed Peter G. Check the hovers for Peter’s description of this Owl Rhode Island ResQte!

Sea Lion Pup Trubble In SoCal

Scientists are baffled as to why a lot of sea lions are stranding themselves along the beaches of Southern California, and some of them are in tough shape. Wired has a good story on how truckloads of these Prosh Dudes are being shipped up the coast to the SF Bay Area’s Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito for care.

[You can also help feed these guys. Donate to “Meals for Seals” right here.]

Pretty Sure a Glacier Just Melted

Mmm, complex aromas of cheesy snausages and old leather shoes layered with a hint of toilet water followed by warm notes of barnyard refined earthiness.

All in the Family

Moses the African elephant was in rough shape and orphaned until he was found and adopted by the big family at the Jumbo Foundation.

Now he’s got it all – dogs, people, meelks, a big bed and lots of room to play and roam.

I always thought my family was a mishmash of wonderful weirdos until I saw these photos send in by Beverly W. via YAHOO! News.

“He is a rescue from the South, with whom I shared my first, and only, winter in Upstate New York. He was a great companion and very patient. He did end up destroying the Valentine Garland and I kept finding glittery hearts melted into the ice for weeks afterward. Happy Valentine’s Day!” -Kat K.

24 Hours Of Cute: Happy Valentine’s Day continues…

Want!

Now, now dear (singsong). You didn’t ask and you didn’t say please. Sooo, how do we get what we want?
