“I found this amazing turntable cat scratcher at a garage sale, and when I told them I was going to buy it for the no-kill shelter I volunteer for, they refused to take my money and made me take it for free. I decided to take some photos to show them how the kittens at the shelter enjoyed it. Here’s a link to the set on Flickr  in case you want to check out some of the others! The black kitten in these photos is named Squeakers, because every time the staff at the shelter picked him up, he squeaked!” – Andi M.

THIS JUST IN: Kazakhstan ResQte NewsFlash!

Cuteporter Wendy Q. has the 411. “Nellie was rescued from the streets in Astana, Kazakhstan, a few weeks ago. She’s now living happily with her new owners and has her own blog. She is fearful of many things at present – especially sudden noises or movement, but has a naturally feisty nature and is adept at plundering socks, gloves and underwear.”

From homeless on the streets of Kazakhstan to having your own website. (AND hoomins who love you!) Congratulations to Nellie!

Little Orphan Eggie

In over 40 years of rescuing our feathered friends around the world, this was one of the most anticipated arrivals of all for International Bird Rescue. A severely injured mama Mallard was brought in to their San Francisco Bay Wildlife Hospital and found to have a single egg. Mama could not be saved but the veterinary staff were able to save her one egg. 26 days later, after waiting and wondering, a perfect mallard duckling hatched!

Miami Marlins Adopt-O-Mania

On Sunday, June 2, the Miami Marlins did not bat 1000. They batted 102! That’s how many furry friends found forever homes thanks to the Miami Marlins Ayudan (Spanish for “help”) Team of community outreach volunteers, along with the Humane Society, Animal Services and The Cat Network! That’s some major league teamwork, peeps.

Go Marlins! Look who’s on the Home Team now!

“Hello, I have a photo submission for your consideration! Pretty much illustrates the dictionary entry for “pounce,” no? The dog’s name is Jacques, and my sister had just adopted him via animal rescue. She had wanted to name him after a marine scientist, but she realized that he wasn’t quite brilliant enough for that, so she went with the explorer.” -Larry B. (Lyrics by Katrina & The Waves)

PSSST! Hey …

“My name is Katrina, and I am a long-time fan of cuteoverload. My boyfriend, Alex, and I adopted an adorable ball of spaz named Pippin a few months ago from the Washington Animal Rescue League. He just had his 1st birthday a couple weeks ago and already has had an eventful life, including illness, broken bones, multiple homes, and 2 name changes. At 6 months old, while being hospitalized for a moderate URI, Pippin (then Champ) fell out of his cage and broke his left hind leg. His owner couldn’t or wouldn’t give the extra care he needed, so the little guy stayed at the hospital until the good people at the Washington Animal Rescue League took him in. Alex saw his picture on their website a Christmas, and we just knew, you know? We didn’t learn about Pippin’s (then Zap) medical history until we filled out an application to adopt him, but he’s so active you would never be able to tell his leg was ever broken! We chose the name Pippin after the character from Lord of the Rings, which is quite fitting- he gets into EVERYTHING. Including the bookcase. Especially the bookcase. Alex takes awesome photos and has managed to get a few shots of Pippin (in between energetic running spurts of kitten-crazy).” Check them out on Alex’s flickr.
