    Barely out of the pouch adorable.

    Daw! Baby roo hand hugs! Almost like my kitties at 6 a.m. when they hope being adorable will make me get up and feed them….
    (And LOVE the derp banner and tagline, NTMTOM. That pic always makes me laugh)

    How sweet! I’d put my neck smack dab in the middle of that hug.

    “Doing strange things to animals since 2008” Haha!

    I stretched out my hands, but no Roo was there for petting and now I am sad.
    Hmmm…..I can cheer myself up by saying PUPPY
    PUPPY puppy puppy puppy 😀

      Oh good thinking Saffron, I ‘ll stretch out my hands and see if a bebeh roo appears. *pause* 🙁 Nope. Oh but wait! here comes my orange puddish; he really is the best hugger in the world, so that makes me a pretty lucky person. We’ll make do.

    The new banner seems especially appropriate for the tagline!👍🏻

    Bebeh kangaroo – perfect way to start the morning!

    My dog Chico is like this. To him, I am only a food and “scritchy scratch” dispenser. Sigh.

    I work for the Canadian Federal Gov’t and — good news! — your site is not blocked. Which I find rather amazing because the I.T. folks LOVE to block pretty much anything and everything, in that order.

    Love the layout experimentation. I am particularly fond of the header photo and tagline combo on this one. Nice colour scheme too.

    Aaaand last but not least, I love me some baby kanga! So durned cute.

    My cat must be part baby roo because she does the exact same thing. Usually when I’m a captive audience answerimg the call of nature if you know what I mean.

    NTMTOM is that PayPal only?

    • Not That Mike The Other Mike November 15, 2015 / 4:01 pm

      Faye, it’s PayPal, but you don’t need to have a PayPal account. You can use your credit card by clicking “pay with a credit or debit card” on the page titled “Choose a way to pay.”

  11. Faye November 15, 2015 / 4:36 pm

    Ok! I just closed my PayPal! Lol. Will do, with pleasure. 😻

    Bah! Mondays! posts are needed… ideas anyone?

    • Not That Mike The Other Mike November 15, 2015 / 8:50 pm

      Do you mean like an equivalent to the “Rats It’s Mondays” theme?

      • fkaWaldenPond November 15, 2015 / 9:28 pm

        Sorry, I mean ‘Yes!’ to this thread. I loved the whole idea of ‘Rats It’s Mondays’ theme… I often sign off work emails on Monday with ‘Bah! Mondays’ in the spirit and all.

      Here’s an idea that could be sustainable: Every Monday morning there’s a post built around a picture of a particularly grumpy animal, someone who’s having a bad case of the Mondays. It wouldn’t necessarily be a rat, just any animal looking a little bleary. I think I can gather up a lot of photos meeting that profile. (Not in time for tomorrow, but future Mondays.)

      • allein November 15, 2015 / 10:46 pm

        Heh, I just posted a couple on Facebook tonight that would fit the bill. 😉

      • Smartypants November 16, 2015 / 7:56 am

        Sounds great! Over on Zooborns in the last few days there are a couple of baby animals sticking out their tongues who would totally qualify too.

  14. birdcage November 16, 2015 / 12:00 am

    I love the Monday idea!

  15. Faye November 16, 2015 / 4:48 am

    Sounds good.

    Such a sweet video. Baby roo needed snuggles.
