The Year In Cute: Is That A Ferret In Your Blouse …

… or are we just happy to see you?  2008 was a diverse year for Cats ‘n’ Racks™: Ferrets, waterfowl, stuffed animals, and even the occasional cat.  And now, a little somethin’ for the fellas:

Nothing says 'you're just getting a handshake tonight' quite like ferrets.

Accessory Tip: A strategically-placed duckling can be very beak-oming …

Ugh, we're going to pretend we didn't hear that.

And finally, perhaps the most enchanting creature ever to grace these pages: Warm, inviting smile; eyes that sparkle like moonlight across distant waters … and a really nice beav — No.  No, I won’t say it.  I won’t sully this vision of radiance and purity with such vulgarity.

Like hell I won't: NICE BEAVER!!

Thanks for the mammaries, Jennie W., Arlo R., Brittany F., and (sigh) Sasha V.

The Year In Cute: Once You Go Walrus, Baby, You Never Go Back

In 2008, all the creatures of the world learned to live and love together in blissful peace and harmony.  Well, except for us, of course, but y’know — we’ve got issues.  Anyway, here are some of the interspeciesly snorglest photos of 2008 to show us how it’s done, and here to help them out is our very special guest star, ladies and gentlemen, Mister Barry White!

Oh my (ow) darling, my (ow) forbidden love (ow) for you will (ow) never die...

I claim this kitty in the name of the Republic of Budgietania!

Man, I HATE it when Uncle Louie comes to visit.

And now it's time to play 'Guess Whose Tongue That Is?'

Two piglets, extra wrinkles, extra ears, comin’ right up

The Los Angeles Times is reportin’ these Wrinklestilskins (Actually Chinese Meishan pigs) are all the rage at Berlin’s "Tierpark". Apparently, these chubbular wonders are famous for their wrinkles (duh) and loooong ears.

Snow Day!

"Awesome! It snowed last night, and Dad just said that he heard on the radio that we don’t have Zoo today, yippeee!  Hey, maybe we can go to the School and look at the baby humans."

Look, Just Give Them The Figgy Pudding Already!

For they won’t go until they get some, and you just know they’re going to sit there caroling all night until your ears fal-al-al-al-al-all right off. (Extortion, that’s what it is, pure and simple …)

FA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA- (Aaugh! Make it stop!)

Baby turtle practices “release wave”

Before his release into the wild, this behbeh tur-tur shows us his "later beeyatches!" flipper wave.

Nicely done, Mr. Tur-Tur. See you back on the beach when you weigh 800 pounds.

Late! [Followed by 45 minutes of ‘ehn’ sounds crawling towards water]

Stowaways!

"I gotta get outta this country, Bruce!  The sunshine, the great surfing, the hot Sheilas — it’s all too perfect!"

"Bloody oath, Bruce!  What’s the plan, then?"

And so then we (huzza wuzza fluzza guzza) ...

"We hang out by the airport, hop in some luggage, and shoot through to America!"

"Good onya, Bruce!  Minnesota, here we come!"

Remember, if anyone asks, you're a blow dryer.

Some folks just can’t handle awesomeness, Dan B.

Mr. and Mrs. Nutria Start Their Day

"Bye, honey! (kiss, kiss!) Have a great day (smooch!) foraging and digging up gardens! (yumm, smack!)"

"Will do, sweetie! (peck!) And make sure that Junior (slurp, lick!) finishes his burrowing homework! (umm-waah!)"

No tongues!

I’m getting chapped lips just watching them, Minette L.
