Kittens Playing Pool

Give two silly kittens free reign of a pool table and let the fun ensue! You don't even need any pool cues or balls... All you need is those fun little holes that kitties can duck and dive and hide in!

Don't they remind you of gophers? This version of pool looks way more fun that the normal way to play!

BONUS CUTE: Check out this chihuahua playing pool (for real!).

Adorable Kitten vs. Fingers!

Kittens don't even need toys. Anything that moves is fair game. And honestly, if it's not moving, it's pretty fair game, too.

Especially fingers. If I took a survey, I bet fingers would come up on the top of the Kittens Favorite Toys list.

Look at how big this baby's eyes are!

Cow-Cat Momma and Her Cow Kittens Need an Angel!

It's not very often that I use the Cute to beg... but every once and a while, a group of kittens or a special cat just gets to me. This is one of those times.

There is a litter of cow-kittens and their cow momma at a kill shelter in Georgia. They are not safe and are in dire need of rescue. I just heard that some more mommas came in today, so that means this group is getting closer to not making it out. :(

A rescue needs to pull them, but what we really need is a foster for them to go to. If you can take them -- and you are ANYWHERE -- let me know and we'll see what we can do and if there's any way to get them out alive and to you. They don't have long!

Just look at these faces... Below is the post directly from the shelter. I am not sure how much time they have left, so if you can help them, please speak up ASAP! And even if you can't, please share this post.

Let's get these sweeties out of there safe and alive!

Here's the post directly from the shelter:

"Can you get over these little Cow pies? Look at the one under her arm......she adores her babies and snuggles them up close to her. She has 4 little cow spotted kits, and she is a young thing herself. This girl is VERY sweet and loving.

Please give her a second chance, and help her babies live safely.

We are very rescue friendly and are more than happy to work with any rescue group as long as the group has a valid Georgia Department of Agriculture license! Any rescue group, whether in or out of state, that takes pets from Georgia shelters, is required, by Georgia law, to have a rescue license issued by the Georgia Department of Agriculture's Animal Protection Division. Having tax exempt status is not the same as a license. For more information on obtaining a license, please call (404) 656-4914.

UPDATE Sun, 5/22: As of yesterday, this family is still alive in the kill shelter. Am working with a couple people to see if we can get them out (hopefully) tomorrow and get them somewhere safe. No definite news yet. I'm not even sure if they're still there since no one asked today. If they are there, it's getting too close to comfort! I wish I was local and could go scoop them up myself. Keeping paws crossed still!

UPDATE Fri, 6/3: Best of my knowledge these babies are still alive. They were 2 days ago anyway. I have rescues that can pull them, people who will help fund raise, but no final destination for them to go to. :( What we need is a foster in Georgia or a miracle! Please keep sharing.

UPDATE Mon, 6/6: THE COW FAMILY IS SAFE! Yay! Oh, this is the best news. The Humane Society of Forsyth County nearby them came through at the last-minute and offered them a spot! It's a no-kill shelter, so these babies and momma are now worry free! Happy happy happy! Here's more of the story:

This teeny tiny baby squirrel likes to have fuzzy little back scratched! But who doesn't, right?

Blues Dog Sings the Blues

Shot-Z the Weimaraner has some serious doggie vocal talent! His daddy plays the harmonica, and he sings along -- and right in tune even!

I wonder what he's singing about. Anyone have any guesses? Anyone speak dog?

BONUS CUTE: Watch this husky singing a lullaby to a baby. So sweet! And it works, too. Baby stopped crying and relaxed right away.

Two Cats Tuesday: Outtakes and Random Pimp and Moo Pics

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today I wanted to share some random cute pictures I like that I haven't shared here before. Kind of a random mish-mosh of cuteness from around our house!

Moo in his favorite sunpuddle.

One of Moo's favorite toys... His rat!

Pimp on the sink.

Florence and Herman. They still come every single day!

I love all these pictures, but none of them were enough for a post by themselves... so I figured all of them together would be fun! Hope everyone has a great day!

P.S. Don't forget the Be the Change for Pets "Sell Your Stuff, Save a Life" virtual garage sale starts tomorrow! I'd love to see all of you participate! Take this opportunity to get rid of some of the stuff in your house... and donate the money to a good cause -- shelter animals! :)

Crazy Kittens vs. Boxes

These two uncoordinated kittens are just getting the hang of the whole "box" thing that cats are supposed to be able to do so well. From the looks of these two silly kitties, it must take some practice...

I'm sure they'll have it mastered in no time!

Raccoon Just Wants a Hug

Love 'em or hate 'em (Cute is in the love 'em camp for sure!), sometimes raccoons just want a little love, too.

I dare you to deny this cutie the hug he's asking for!

BONUS CUTE: Did you know baby raccoons purr and make biscuits just like kittens?!
