Who ResQte Who?

This is Mika.


Jordan tells us, “He’s about 6 weeks old and was orphaned soon after being born. We were offered him seemingly at random by his owner outside of a shopping centre, after being told that he’d be put down if no one took him. We didn’t hesitate at all to welcome him into our family.”

Mika is settling right in to his forever home.


Now that he feels secure, he’s found his voice and he’s not afraid to use it.



He’s so comfortable he’s taken control of the remote and now everyone has to watch Blue Planet all the time.


And, finally, Mika surveys his new-found territory from the safety of his Catbus.


Best wishes to Jordan O., Maxine and Mika and thanks to Patti for taking great photos.

Thanks to BFFs Kara the cat and Melba the bunny, two shelter rescues who share a special bond, for helping create the bestest new day of cute evar!

From Hoarder to Home

Sender-Inner Sharon D. says: “Finlay was rescued from a hoarder house of 40 cats, all orange, all fluffy and all related to an original orange fluffy couple. With practically no human contact, he and his “brother” Reilly (Mr. Nosevember!) were almost feral. The SPCA raided the house and were going to euthanize the lot of ‘em.

VOKRA (Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association) stepped in to provide foster and forever homes for these beautiful cats. Reilly and Finlay were two of the shyest kitties, so I brought them home. They’re noisy cuddle monsters, now. This photo shows Finlay at the groomer. He has silky fine fluff, that gets knotted. I brush and comb him, but he still needs regular trips to the groomer. His face is priceless in this shot.”

Puppehs. In. Snow.

Here at Cute Overload’s Northern California HQ, we don’t get much of a chance to see Puppehs In Snow unless we put the chains on the tires and trek up to Lake Tahoe. These little guys SNIFF THE CAMERA LENS AND BOUNCE IN THE SNOW so let’s take a look at some RIGHT NOW OKAY THEN?

PS U in or near the Great White North? Learn more about these puppehs- they’re looking for a nice warm home, just sayin.’ Video c/o submitter Allan D.

Um, Are You Peeps Busy?

Because, if you’re not, we have 10 puppehs who NEED 10 NAMES! Mama is a little bit overwhelmed. We must hasten to her assistance!

Roberta S.’s foster Mama beagle had emergency c-section (note pink bandage of honor) with TEN pups. All are doing well but their names are still to be determined!

“You Win!”

No Elaine F., we all win!

She adds, “I started playing the hand slap game (aka hot hands) to help my dog Lucy, a rescue, come out of her shell and do some seo services. Doggie SEO, you know? Now she’s a pro! She will challenge anyone to a game!”
