Cuteporter Amanda M. zipped us off this email. “I adopted Rufus in December 2011. He was rescued by the Georgia Humane Society at age 1 from a high kill shelter the day he was supposed to be put to sleep. I found him after he was in his foster home and he was really sick. Turns out he has balance issues and can’t see very well. He’s silly. It would make his day to be on Cute Overload!”
[Rufus, consider your day made, my friend. -Ed]

Scientists are baffled as to why a lot of sea lions are stranding themselves along the beaches of Southern California, and some of them are in tough shape. Wired has a good story on how truckloads of these Prosh Dudes are being shipped up the coast to the SF Bay Area’s Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito for care.
[You can also help feed these guys. Donate to "Meals for Seals" right here.]

Mmm, complex aromas of cheesy snausages and old leather shoes layered with a hint of toilet water followed by warm notes of barnyard refined earthiness.
