“I Took This Picture Of My Bestest Friend”

IMG_2224Georgette N. says, “This is Betty (full name Bettina Chiweiner.) She is about 7 years old and I was so lucky to find her at Pets in Need in Redwood City, CA. Betty loves to sleep and it is often hard to drag her out of bed in the morning. Here she just woke up with her version of One Flap Up. I took this picture of my bestest friend.”

Ooooh, How I Loff This Red Thing!

IMG_1656Rachel W. says, “When I showed my coworker this picture, he said I had to send it over to your site. Our rescue dog Peanut has been told so many times he’s our baby that he’s starting to believe it. You can see more of his shenanigans on Instagram.

Edgar’s Mission: Australian Overload

Around-The-farm-July-2Goodness Gracious, Edgar’s Mission has not only broken the Cute Meter, they stomped all over it. Can you even comprehend these?

Caturday Night: Peppers Is Rule #58 All The Way!

unnamedEmmu M. says, “I don’t know if he counts as ‘One Flap Up,’ because Peppers only has one flap! He’s my sweet boy…I adopted him from the shelter and he had just gotten surgery to have his ear removed (it was deformed and kept giving him ear infections.). He had food allergies, a skin ailment, and behavioral issues. But we toughed it out through the roughest patches, and today he is a happy, healthy, loving addition to our family!”


Cats are the most popular creatures on The Tubes. Just ask ’em. If they’re not too bored with your presence, they might give you a response. Then again- it’s TOO LATE FOR THAT NOW. HEAD FOR THE HILLS—the Cats are ESCAPING FROM THE INTERNET!

Looks Like They Picked A Name!

Remember back on July 21st, we had this story about a Lil’ Otter who was rescued from the side of an Oregon highway, and taken to the Oregon Zoo? He needed a name, they held a contest, and the winner is…LITTLE PUDDING.

Paisley (The Sequel)

image6Paisley got a lot of attention this week- being our featured ResQte Of The Week and also getting her very own Rule.

When we informed Paisley’s hoomin Meaghan S. about this, she said “WHAT AN HONOR! I just told Paisley. She said, “arooroooroooooo thank yooouuuuu!” You know the moment I adopted Paisley I knew she would be a dog of many ears, and I’m all about the cute ears!”

“Some days she has ears completely folded over, some days she has one flap up, some days she has one half flap up, and some days she has Dobby ears (you know, from Harry Potter!?). PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE! Thank you Cute Overload!”
