We. Need. Warmth.

unnamed (7)A warm bed for every bebbeh! Wouldn’t that be a TERRIFIC thing? (Everyone nods their heads approvingly.)

Q: How do you save an orphaned bebbeh animal? A: Keep them warm!

unnamed (1)
The non-profit site Baby Warm.org just launched to donate incubators to volunteer homecare wildlife rehabbers who save orphaned bebeh animals in every community across the country.

Bebeh Beavers, Otters, Sqwerls, Birds, ‘Munks, Buns, Possies, Skunklets, Ducklings, and more.

If they don’t have a mom to keep them warm, an incubator is the next best place to rest their adorbs little noggins…

…so they can grow up healthy and strong…and make it back to the wild where they belong.

unnamed (5)
Baby Warm raises money for incubators- that’s all. Each incubator will be used for 10-12 years to keep hundreds of babies warm and healthy.

You can see on the site that there are 12 rehabbers listed at any given time and you can see what kind of animals they care for, read their story, and pick one to help out and chip in toward their incubator.

According to BuzzFeed, “Khaleesi is already super confident, hopping ‘quick bound around the bedroom at 3 a.m.’ Little Alkira’s name means ‘sunshine.'”

Ear Floof ALONE Puts This One Over The Top

Congrats To The Class Of 2014!

Earlier in the year, the New York ASPCA opened up a specialized nursery for Leetle Kittehs that were too young to make it on their own. On Tuesday, they held a graduation ceremony for the furrballs, who now move on to the ASPCA Adoption Center where they’ll be ready to go to a new home! Wanna donate to the ASPCA? Here’s how.

And BTW- do we know who graduated Phi Beta Catta?

Last Caturday In ‘Tocktober!

IMG_6233So let’s make it a great one! “Hi there. Here is my Tock-tober submission,” says Rachel R. “I’ve been following C.O. for a while (it’s the first thing I look at every morning!) and thought this would be the purrrr-fect opportunity to introduce my kitties, Mr. Willy (L) and Ms. Billy June. I rescued them together because they wouldn’t leave each other’s sides at the shelter. As you can see are inseparable. I would be so excited to see them on C.O.!”

Updated! Almost Time For Howl ~O~ Ween!

Just got an email from Cuteporter Sian B., and this Little Cutee was included! “Hi C.O., Long-time C.O. fan here, hoping to brighten your day. Please see the attached pictures of a 3.5 week old puppy called Starfire having a little go at howling, and her inquisitive little face in the Pre-Howl picture included.”

starface
“Starfire and her 13 siblings were orphaned at a day old and are being hand-reared by some very wonderful foster carers for Jerry Green Dog Rescue in the UK. After a rocky first couple of weeks, all 14 puppies are happy, fat little dumplings who are loving learning about life!”

starhowling

SIAN B. UPDATE!
“Just to clarify and reassure the concerned commenters; the puppies weren’t orphaned because mum passed away, rather she was very unwell and needed a caesarian. She wasn’t well enough to care for the puplets, so they had to go into foster care. Mum has now made a full recovery and will hopefully be finding her own new home soon!”
