ATTN C.O. PEEPS: Knitted Birds Nests Needed STAT!

Cuteporter Mary P. sent us this Urgent QTE-Flash email. Let’s hear it, Mary:

I need your help. So far, I’ve only been able to knit 3 and a half of the 1200 nests Wildcare needs for this year’s crop of orphaned baby birdies. With your help, I bet the Cute Overload community can make the needed knitted nests in no time! Wildcare is located in San Rafael, CA. (North of SF.) This link has info on how to help.”

Patty & Her Little Guys

“Hope it isn’t too late to submit for Mother’s Day…[Nope! -Ed.]…this is my foster kitty Patty & her 4 babies. Patty was heavily pregnant when she was trapped in a feral colony (she’s definitely not feral!) I took her home & the next day she gave birth. The babies were 2 weeks old yesterday. Patty is the best mommy and her kittens are beyond adorable!” -Cuteporter Cathy O’B.

“Wednesday, one of my coworkers found a tiny turtle in the middle of our metalworking shop…1.25″ long. I found an old 3.5″ floppy disk box to put him in so I could take him to the state park after work. I gave him a cap of water and a popcorn chip. My sister was able to ID him. My son called him “Turtle Kwong,” and TK was soon dropped off near a river at the state park.” -Andrew K.

[NOTE: Here's what a floppy disk box looks like for the kids in the audience. -Ed.]

“These two have just started to chew on willow trees a bit but they’re still babies who need their bottle – as you can see in this photo.”

“Unlike most orphaned wild animals that rehabbers handle minimally…”

“…orphaned baby beavers needs loads of attention…”

Tahoe Update #2!

The Little Bear is named Tahoe, and as you recall, she turned up (unannounced) last month at the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care center. Here’s the latest video, plenty of adorabuhl bumbling-tumbling-fumbling, too. Thanks go to KB.
