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.]

CAUGHT ON FILM™: Ultimate Mama Bear ResQte!

People, U just won’t believe this one. Mama Bear discovered her son was playing on a road through Kootenay National Park, which is located in southeastern British Columbia in Canada. Needless to say, she put a stop to that immediately.

U can bet someone is going to get a talking-to. Or a growling-to. (And here’s Stunbunny’s “Bongo Feet,” by request.)

“Snowy Started It!”

This is Quirky & Snowy. Which one is which? Quirky is the one who has learned to type his own photo submission to CO, for purely journalistic purposes of course:

“I love the look in Snowy’s eyes in the picture of them wrestling – and for the record, Snowy was the one who started it.”

My son Regan and his wife Ana have two dogs, a one year old named Quirky (on the left) and a three year old rescue named Snowy (on the right). The dogs love to watch out the front window of the apartment for their mom and dad to come home! Quirky has calmed down a bit since they adopted Snowy, and Snowy has come out of his shell in the short time he has been living with them, thanks to the playful Quirky! -Karen K.

Once there was “A mythical woodland creature tiny abandoned kitten who found a group of friendly giants hikers at a magical forest Red River Gorge, Kentucky. “He clearly cast a spell on us adopted us by using his powers of the Qte following us for half a mile through the woods.” They named him Red.”

Caturday: Did U Ever Know U Were My Hero?

1912553_655833834471994_7563312329536825942_oHave you seen this video? For some reason, a dog decides to sneak-attack 4 year old Jeremy Triantafilo on a bike, and Tara The Hero Cat comes to his rescue! (Note: some injury photos at :46, FYI.)

Tara’s got her own FB page where U can learn more- and she’s even (somehow) throwing out the first pitch at a Bakersfield Blaze minor league baseball game Tuesday night!

Rule Of Cuteness #97

This is a rare Rule. It’s so rare, I didn’t know that it existed. And it was created precisely a year ago. Who knew? Well, I did. But I forgot. So here it is, Rule of Cuteness #97.

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

Taken at Saving Grace Rescue. From The Furrtographer, who adds “That’s Murcy. She was born with twisted hind legs that just stick out behind her and kind of lay there. It doesn’t bother her at all and she was adopted recently from Saving Grace.”

[To be fair, C.O. Facebook commenter Bruno G. spotted this Rule. Bruno BTW, il y a une lacune dans les règles parce que je ne sais pas pourquoi. -Ed.]

ResQte Of The Week II: Eleven Little Ducks Went Swimming One Day

Oops! Looks like they swam the wrong way.

The kindness of strangers rescued the pack.

And all eleven ducks said, “Quack, quack, quack.”

“Eleven ducklings trapped in a storm drain are alive and well thanks to two alert Mount Vernon residents and a resourceful crew with the city’s fire department! “Thanks to their diligence and selflessness, an entire family of ducklings was saved from nearly certain peril,” said Jeff Brown with Skagit County Washington Search and Rescue.

Rest of the story over at KOMO News. Thank you to Susan H., who says, “Hi! Here’s a great story about 11 ducklings rescued by the Mt. Vernon (WA) fire department. More candidates for the Men of CO calendar, methinks!! P.S. I love that they blocked the entire lane for the rescue!”

CAUGHT ON FILM™: Amazing Kenya Bebeh Trunkster ResQte!

You won’t believe this.

Here are a bunch of Adult Trunksters, just kinda hanging out in Kenya crossing a river, which is, well, what Adult Trunksters do. Then a little Bebeh Trunkster floats off, and Mama has got to go reel him in!
