Meow! It’s Black Cat Appreciation Day!

Sure, they get a lot of attention in October, but that’s not quite the kind they want! Today’s Black Cat Appreciation Day! And here are five ASPCA-approved reasons why they would make a great kitteh for you!

Black cats go with everything—and they’ll never go out of style!

You can tell your kids you adopted a miniature panther.

Their fur won’t show on your little black dress.

In most cultures, black cats are a sign of good luck.

Black cats are just as loving, sweet and wonderful as any other cat!

Let There Be Meeps!

IMG_1540Gail S. says “This is my new rescute kitten, Meeps. She was seized from a hoarder, and has a kinked tail due to an untreated break. I think it makes her even more adorable. We both love Cute Overload and would be honored if you chose to feature her. Above is my favorite photo of her so far!”

“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.

Toesday: Vincent Van Gato (AKA Lil’ Vinnie The One Eared Wonder Kitteh)

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!
