Hey Fred, U Seen Betty And Wilma?

SURE, Barney! They’re at the Coast & Canyon Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Maliboo.

From the C&C FB: “The autumn baby season has officially begun at Coast & Canyon.”


“Meet Betty and Wilma! After a rough start in life…”

“…these two are now safe…warm and cuddled up together in their incubator!”

Sqwerl Tales

Guppy Momma tells the story.

“After a rainy morning, this squirrel was on a deck railing close to our glass door. It was so close to the camera that I had to zoom out to get the whole squirrel. ”


“It spent a long time lounging and looking sulky, then it spent a long time grooming and eventually left. At one point we thought the squirrel would fall backwards off the railing.”

“This is a baby squirrel that was on my campus and was very tame. Not something you experience every day… I named him Nuts. Thought it would be appropriate to share on your site!” -Cuteporter Charlie B. in the You Kay.

“I was walking along the path on my university campus (Roehampton University) in London. I stopped to look at this guy on the side of the path. When I stopped, he came and jumped onto my shoe, no kidding. I sat down and he went into my lap and fell asleep. I kept him with me for a few hours showing people, then put him back into some bushes in a wooded area that evening. Never saw him again!”

OK, Let’s Make Sure OK is A-OK

Is This a Thing?

Back in the day, otters stacked cups. Oh, times were so much simpler then. Where’s that otter? He could tell us what’s up with this whole craze.

From the Ear Tuft Hall of Fame

All the way from Smörgasbörd Land, the Tuftiest Ear Tufts Of All!

Cutepörtér Catherine M. presents, “EuroNutkin. He comes to visit us in our backyard in Sweden. We leave noms out for him on the back step. As he sneaks up to the step, first we see his tail… then, his mighty ear tufts… and finally, his little nose and claw peek over the top of the step. Sometimes he stays to eat his noms, sometimes he quickly yoinks a nom and then bounds away… “

Holly B.’s husband took this video of her ginger cat, Loki, who, “loves watching squirrels so my husband has trained them to come to the window for peanuts. Loki got so excited he ended up assisting the squirrel and pushed a peanut right to him! It was so adorable! Here’s the video I thought everyone would enjoy :)
I love the site, keep up the good work, brings me so much joy on a daily basis! :)”
