She got those little blue booties when she was 6 months old.

The Denver Post says Boots “will undergo further surgery this summer to reshape the amputated areas of her legs, after which she will be refitted for new, more permanent prosthetics.”

Benny & Penny Go For The Big Swim

Remember when you were young, and you learned how to swim? Maybe you took lessons at the pool, or your parents taught you. Either way, it probably looked and felt a little like this!

“It’s their first swim on the “Big Waters” of our pond enclosure at the Woodlands Wildlife Sanctuary, after being raised in a smaller pen with only a baby swimming pool. Their excitement is contagious! These goslings, and all the other orphaned and injured babies at our sanctuary, will be released back to their natural habitats.” -Monika M.

Got The Monday Grumps?

You’re not the only one. (Speakers up for the Squeaks, btw.)

“I volunteer at the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation and this little fellow is one of our current residents. Another volunteer and I took him outside for some exercise, but what he really wanted to do was nap! You can hear his grumpy little squeaks as we try to get him to move around. We haven’t named him as we are hoping to release him once he’s a bit older. However, many of us are referring to him by the oh so original nickname of “Porky.” -Sandi F.

It’s Adopt-A-Cat Month!

June is Adopt-A-Cat Month, which aims to raise awareness of shelter pet adoption. Here are some terrific photos from The Furrtographer of kittehs now available at the Humane Society Of Silicon Valley. Check hovers for deets, and if you happen to be in the Bay Area- head on over.

Rump Day

Middle of the week, and that means Rump Day! This is Iker Catsillas Purnandez. Cuteporter FB says: “He is named after the captain of Real Madrid football team and the Spanish National Football Team. He snores like an old man, is afraid of everyone and everything and loves to lounge about, as you can see. He even does yoga!”

“Iker is a rescue; his previous owners left him in a cardboard box outside the local humane society in the middle of the night in a November blizzard. :( They apparently cared enough to neuter him, but when they found out he was diabetic and would require special care (i.e. insulin,) they abandoned him. Their loss, definitely my gain!”

An App For A Good Paws (Geddit?)

The Furrtographer aka Josh Norem has his first app for iOS available on the Apple™ App Store!

It’s 116 kitten wallpapers, and was created from his various volunteer efforts with Tonis Kitty Rescue, Wonder Cat Rescue and Saving Grace Rescue Inc.!

The cost?

Ninety-nine cents. For 116 Kittehs. That works out to 0.00853448276 cents per kitteh!

(He’ll be donating a portion of the proceeds to the rescues that provided kittehs for the shoot, so everybody wins!)

Whadya waitin’ for? Here they are!

Rule Of Cuteness #97: The Sequel

As we said back on the 15th of this month:

HEAD TO BODY RATIO: If your head is exponentially larger than the rest of your entire body, that’s cute.

And so it shall be. This terrific photo of Pookie is care of Nathan W., who adds “She is a Rescue Kitteh from King County animal shelter. We are fostering them.”

Goin’ Home To The Place That He Belongs

Dateline, Grass Valley, CA.: People, prep the Kleenex, you’re gonna need it.

Mr. G. The Goat and Jellybean The Burro were rescued after years of living together, but went to two different rescue places. Mr. G. missed Jellybean terribly.

So they were reunited.

Spotted by Smedley Angel Fish. More at KTVU.com. Like the song? It’s called “Home,” and it’s on The iTunes.

Frostie The Snow Goat: A Jolly Happy Soul

We’re used to Japan blowing the lid off The Cute, but just when you least expect it, here comes Edgar’s Mission from Down Undah to steal the show.

And steal it they DO; this is Frostie The Snow Goat! Good grief. Take it away, Kyle B.

“A couple of days ago a little goat arrived – Frostie The Snow Goat – who has joint navel disease which limits the use of his back legs because of a buildup of gunky stuff and swelling in the joints. We need to keep him active and actually lent him Leon Trotsky’s cart to get around in and it is working wonders.”

[NOTE 1: Watch for the tail wagging.]

[NOTE 2: Update 11:25am PT: More photos added!]
