Mom Taxi VIII: Rufus

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]

Shouldn’t Her Name Be “Wrinkles” Instead?

Earlier today we mentioned it’s National Farm Animals Day. Winkles the Shar-Pei cross wanted to get in on the act, too.

From Cuteporter Adam C.: “I went and spent a good half day filming ‘Winkles’ the farm puppeh! Very hard to keep up with but I think you’ll agree she is pretty cute!! She lives at Serendipity Farm which is a rescue farm Down Under for unwanted livestock animals. (How cool is that btw?)

[Very cool. -Ed]

“CO Doesn’t Feature Enough Owls”

That’s what a reader wrote. Well, we appreciate the feedback, and consider that gross injustice FIXED right here and now.

First off, here’s a Saw-Whet Owl cooling off at the Blanford Nature Center in Grand Rapids, MI. Video sent in by Cuteporter Karen.

Sea Lion Pup Trubble In SoCal

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.]

Pretty Sure a Glacier Just Melted

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.
