THIS JUST IN: It’s A Girl! (Updated!)

Panda-monium (I know it’s a cliché, but it fits, yo) at the National Zoo this morning, folks. According to the Zoo’s FB page, “Genetics confirmed that our panda cub is a girl! Further, the paternity analysis shows that her father is Tian Tian.”

Baby Panda

Another assist from Cuteporter Nicole, who is driving through Virginia while battling with Siri on her iPhone. (“Siri is not good with commands to attach videos.”) Washington Post photo sent in by Jennifer K.

PS- Check the Panda Cam here– but give it a minute, the whole world is watching.

THIS JUST IN: Maymo Takes Down A Furby

Takes awhile, though. Furbys are built to last. And at about 1:09, after Furby has left the building, notice how Maymo casually glances at the camera, then: thump..thump..thump.

Cold, Maymo. Stone Cold.

More Maymo Madness here.

THIS JUST IN: Kitteh Cat-astrophe Averted In Brooklyn!

BThanks to Cuteporter Julia G. for the tip. It seems two wayward kittehs now named Arthur & August were spotted Thursday on some subway tracks (the Fe-Line) in Brooklyn! No one knows how the little guys got there, but rescuers had to scramble to save their furry little necks! Over to you, Matt.

The service was shut down for about two hours; they were found near the B and Q stops located at Church Avenue in Brooklyn.


The kittehs were, predictably, hard to wrangle.


Rescuers named the pair, who were transported to the Brooklyn Animal Care Shelter, where they are safe.


Quoting the New York Daily News, rider Sandra P. said “The announcer said it had to stop to rescue some cats,” Polel said. “I didn’t mind. I wanted to get home, but I also wanted the kittens to be safe.”


All’s well that ends well. Finally!
