Emmu M. says, “I don’t know if he counts as ‘One Flap Up,’ because Peppers only has one flap! He’s my sweet boy…I adopted him from the shelter and he had just gotten surgery to have his ear removed (it was deformed and kept giving him ear infections.). He had food allergies, a skin ailment, and behavioral issues. But we toughed it out through the roughest patches, and today he is a happy, healthy, loving addition to our family!”
Cats are the most popular creatures on The Tubes. Just ask ’em. If they’re not too bored with your presence, they might give you a response. Then again- it’s TOO LATE FOR THAT NOW. HEAD FOR THE HILLS—the Cats are ESCAPING FROM THE INTERNET!
Remember back on July 21st, we had this story about a Lil’ Otter who was rescued from the side of an Oregon highway, and taken to the Oregon Zoo? He needed a name, they held a contest, and the winner is…LITTLE PUDDING.
When we informed Paisley’s hoomin Meaghan S. about this, she said “WHAT AN HONOR! I just told Paisley. She said, “arooroooroooooo thank yooouuuuu!” You know the moment I adopted Paisley I knew she would be a dog of many ears, and I’m all about the cute ears!”
“Some days she has ears completely folded over, some days she has one flap up, some days she has one half flap up, and some days she has Dobby ears (you know, from Harry Potter!?). PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE! Thank you Cute Overload!”
The Kids at Edgar’s Mission like to work up a good sweat before breakfast! (Or as they say Down Undah, “Brekkie.”)

“A friend of mine suggested I submit a kitten photo I took day before yesterday. My son Stuart (7 years) convinced my husband and I we should adopt two kittens from a farm where we pick up veggies each week throughout the summer. He chose Stripy and I chose Lilah (calico.) They were very skittish at first, but we’ve had them two weeks now and they are obviously very comfortable in our household. This is the best photo I’ve been able to capture so far.” -Amy T.

“The last one is a bonus, in case you need a Pirate Kitty for “Arrrrrgust” in a few weeks,” says Harvie Ruth S.

Prolific Photographer Patrick Jones writes us about Tilly. “She was brought into our shelter suffering from severe head trauma and an untreated ear infection. Thanks to our amazing clinic staff and Tilly’s foster carers, she’s now doing much better.”
“There have been some lasting effects from what Tilly went through; the most obvious of which is that she always tilts her head to the left. This may improve over time, but for now, it definitely doesn’t stop her from enjoying life just as much as any other six-month-old kitten.”
