What can we do?

People, the news from Virginia Tech is absolutely horrible. Heart-breaking. Nothing will help take away the pain it has caused. Baroooooo [cryin' sound]

I could watch this on perpetual loop right now too, Susan H. :(

thanks meg

 |  Apr 17, 2007 at 11:27 PM

This is just what I needed to bring my day to a close...I can sleep hoppily now :)

 |  Apr 17, 2007 at 11:33 PM

Meg, we all need you more than ever right now. Cuteoverload takes us to a better place than the real world is right now. Thanks for reminding us of bunnehs. We need all the bunnehs and kittehs we can get.

 |  Apr 17, 2007 at 11:34 PM

okay, just one more thing,
is this what bunny rush-hour looks like?

 |  Apr 17, 2007 at 11:36 PM

Bunny heaven. YAYYY!!!

I LOVE the little moo-cow spotted buns! And the brown one with one ear up and one ear down!

This just might be the PERFECT post.

Those bunnies are adorable and distracting, but that EVIL piece of *G-R-A-S-S* is totally ruining things!

Prima donna leaf, I keep wanting to pick it up and throw it in the trash rather than focus on the bouncing cuteness.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 12:06 AM


Seriously, I wish there was some way this could be my screensaver.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 12:15 AM

... oh man, I needed this. It's been a bad week here. And since I'm allergic to teh fuzzness o bunnehs, I can at least enjoy the cute. Thank you.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 12:18 AM

The magnitude of ugliness AND beauty in this world is overwhelming sometimes. Thx Meg.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 12:22 AM

I think there needs to be music or a theme song....now what song would be right....

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 12:26 AM

Thank you, Meg! I watched it twice and I'm still lopping ...

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 12:27 AM


 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 12:39 AM

This is what happens when the city won't give up the money for traffic lights at an intersection.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 12:39 AM

Sorry to be a nuff, but some people quite close to me were involved in the tech shooting, and the words used to describe this video seen like its unimportant, or even something funny. It would have been more appropriate to just post a message of condolence, or nothing at all, and ignore it...

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 12:40 AM

Is it just me or is that QUITE a lot of bunnehs to be in one house? Never having had bunnehs, I don't know how many most bunny parents adopt.

I thought the one brown guy who seemed rather "supersized" was really cute. And maybe a little sad? He looked like he might be having some trouble hopping his gi-normitude around the room. Or does he have a little limp? Anybody?

Thanks Meg, for the bunneh extravaganza. I agree wif Gabe... it needs some music to go with. ;-)

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 12:44 AM

darkshines, let me be the first to say that I understand and no one has the right to tell you not to feel the way you do about this.
However, this is something that affects everyone- on different levels, of course, most people aren't as close to it as you are- and everything has a different ways of comforting themselves and others. I'm sure Meg or anyone else did not intend to create the impression that they are taking this lightly.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 12:56 AM

Dear, Dear Darkshines: I am so sorry that you have had people involved in the VA TECH tragedy. I cannot even fathom your horror and sadness. I know though, that no disrespect was intended. The peeps who come to CO every day get our healing from all the sweet animals on the site. Some of us are depressed, lonely or mourning like you. For the last 10 days I have been going through the most horrible thing in my life. I'm crying, mourning and have full time panic attacks. And at 2:20 A M our fire alarm just went off. A month ago I sat with a guy while he bled to death from throat cancer in the hall of my building after he pulled the fire alarm because he couldn't talk. I didn't know what to expect this time. Happily it was a false alarm but quite unnerving. When I came back to my apt. I immediately went to CO for comfort. I have appreciated it SO MUCH over the last 10 days. THANKS MEG!!! You do so much much more than you know!! Darkshines, cute animals are our comfort-which everyone needs a lot of. Animal lovers such as CO fans are people lovers too. We all feel horrible about the tragedy and send our sincere condolences to you and everyone connected with VA TECH. We are so freaked out we need to watch our comfort-sweet, innocent animals who do no harm. Love to you from another mourner.

I'm from Virginia Tech, I live in the dorm where the first shooting occurred (a floor below), and I was on the Drillfield as they were evacuating.

Now then.

Thank you, Meg. I look forward to your tastes of normalcy more now, thanks to our tragedy. Normalcy in and of itself is very reassuring in a trying time.

For those of you wanting to help, either by donating, expressing your concern and sympathy, etc.: Please visit Tech's website at http://www.vt.edu/ . There you can find links to anything you need.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 02:11 AM

Bunnies - - WEEEEEE! Camera snorgling is the love.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 02:14 AM

Also, as for myself: no one I know personally has been hurt or killed and my friends and family have already begun to stand by for help.

So, please, help those who really need you: the hospitalized victims, the families, the friends, and Virginia Tech as a whole.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 02:14 AM

All those little (and not-so-little) buns look like they're having marvelous fun frolicking on the rug! I want to lie down on that rug and let them hop all over me, and just wallow in the fluffitude...

Scientific research has proven that playing with a pet, especially something soft and cute and fluffy, reduces stress and relieves depression. So it's no wonder, when we are hit with devastating news of any kind, we rush to CO - if we can't *pet* a fluffy animal, at least we can look at pictures of them. And that helps us remember that, in spite of all the bad things in the world, there are good things too.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 02:19 AM

Thank you Azaria. You are obviously a mature and fair person. I am so sorry for what you experienced. Please accept all help offered because trauma often hits you later. Please take good care of yourself and your friends at the dorm and know that you have sympathy, empathy and concern from people the world over. My deepest sympathy to you and best wishes for a good recovery. >^..^< ;-) <3

Chipnotizer, just ignore bigoted, hateful people [...]. He/she's just a troll looking to get a rise out of genuinely hurting people. This is shown by his/her ignorant remarks and ignorant terms.

Asiatic (which is the proper term) people are indeed just as good as any other race or nationality. To say that one atrocity caused by an Asiatic person means that any person of Asiatic descent is a horrible monstrosity would be to say that any person of Germanic descent is just as horrid as a Nazi.

While I cannot and will not forgive the gunman who has torn a hole in my university, I hold no such grudge against other innocent people related to him.

As the people who spoke at last night's candlelight vigil on the Drillfield said, we are all Hokies, we are family, and we have turned out and shown our love.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 02:47 AM

I think we should all just ignore [website trolls] and concentrate on the cute bunnehs ^^
It's obvious that he/she is a attention seeker, prob very lonely and empty inside b'coz he/she has no friends to confide to during these trouble times.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 02:53 AM

Azaria -- Thank you for your thoughtful and compassionate comments. You and everyone else at VT has my condolences.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 03:16 AM

I love it when visitors to cuteoverload feel entitled to instruct Meg on how she should or shouldn't run her site.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 03:51 AM

I know that some people will overeact to one person from south korea, but that does not make all of them bad people. AS someone posted earlier we need cute overload to keep posts at little higher rate to put us in happer pplace I think I laghed for the first time since sunday looking at those cute bunnies hopping around.
Most of all we need to pray for all of the victims there families and there freinds. I think that the Romainan Professor is going to be the biggest help to all of those who died monday, he already survived hell on this earth twice, his words of comfort to all will be the best. I am sorry that they are all gone, we must be carry on for those who died before there lives ever got a chance to really grow, and die at god's accord in time.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 04:01 AM

Although i am sad to live far away from the hosters of cuteoverload which seem like very nice people to me, [socio-political opinion deleted, per warning... - Ed.]

...I like the bunnees, already thinking about a video wallpaper for my desktop!

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 04:04 AM

people need bunnies not guns, no one has to have a gun the constitution thing is not' right to bear arms 'its 'need a militia cos theres no army',and US now has an army so should be 'bye bye guns', what will it take to make people see sense?

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 04:11 AM

I visit this site every day and have never joined, but I felt I had to today just to say that this video is pure bliss. I love it.

And guys, I think we need a group hug. No more fighting. Instead, hugs and bunnehs for everyone!

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 04:16 AM

Two minutes of bunnies hopping about? My life is now complete.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 04:29 AM

My parents just told me to be nice, so i'm very sorry. (just wait when i got my dessert :)

not Paris Hilton
 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 04:43 AM

To all of the VT people and their families I cannot begin to express my sympathy. For those who think Meg is trivializing, I must respectfully disagree. I'm from NYC and lost several people I knew on 9/11. After days of unrelenting coverage on all media, smellng the burning wreckage and helping go through a list of names to figure out who may not have been in the building I was fried. So I went out bought a stack of fluffy fashion magazines, didnt turn on the TV and just looked at the pretty. The next day I was able to go back to the real world. Cute is a restorative force, it reminds us of kindness, innocence and beauty.

Chipnotizer, hugs to you too, thats awful.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 04:45 AM

Oakland cat said it best:
"The magnitude of ugliness AND beauty in this world is overwhelming sometimes."

Thank you Meg for bringing us so much beauty every day.

((((Much love to all))))

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 05:05 AM

I have to say it:

No, seriously, this site is where I come for respite from the real world. It's not that I don't care. Sometimes I care too much and a cute break is an act of self preservation.

My condolences to all those affected by the tragedy at VT. I already know that people of all backgrounds have been affected - so far I have read of a Lebanese Christian, two Indians, a Muslim (not sure of ethnic background) and a Romanian/Israeli. The world is so interconnected nowadays that events like this touch us all. My heart goes out to the bereaved and wounded. May God bless and heal you all.

And now just imagine the equivalent of this happening every day in Iraq...


 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 05:17 AM

It's good to look at cute animals enjoying the moment at times like this. Thanks, Meg.

When the news is at its worst, I always think to myself, "All news broadcasts should start with the words, 'Today 99% of all human beings did no harm to their fellow man.'"

Peace to all,

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 05:18 AM

Okay peeps...
Here's a few things I *WILL* moderate out (delete) from this thread:
1) Racism
2) Anybody taking advantage of others' grief (and you know who you are, asshole)
3) Any pro-gun vs. anti-gun flame wars

Keep the discussion civil, please.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 05:21 AM

We're all connected in this crazy quilt of a world, down to the sweetest and most innocent of beings -- animals, who don't perpetrate the horrors that we "intelligent beings" are capable of. Let all good people come together with heartfelt prayers for peace, hope, love and reconcilation, no matter what our backgrounds. God bless.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 05:35 AM

omgosh, I want a room full of bunnies to go watch all day.

I didn't realize they actually moved around that much. My mom has a really really fat rabbit and whenever I drop by to visit her, it never seems to do anything but... sit there.

Now, I want a room full of hoppy bunbuns and a vet that does housecalls. Can you imagine taking that many bunnies to get their teeth checked?

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 05:38 AM

Thanks, Meg. This is just what I needed. You and the bunnehs help to keep us grounded in these ever-more-trying times.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 05:39 AM

Ah, those bun-tocks, they do sooth the soul.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 05:45 AM

Thank you for the bunneh flops and tocks. Lurv the blurry ones close to the camera. I work at a university and what has happened at VT hurts so much as we are so close to our students. Thanks for the smiles at times when I think it is impossible to smile.

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 05:52 AM

I wanna live on that floor...
thx Qte Overload!

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 05:54 AM

Thank you Theo for reminding some, of the rules ! Have nice bun hopping day all

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 06:02 AM

Meg, I am a junior here at Virginia Tech and I check your website EVERY morning before I go to class to get me started for the day. Thank you for keeping with the flow and continuing to post all the cute little fluffies and fuzzies this week...it gives me some part of my routine back, no matter how tiny it may seem. I appreciate everyone who's posted condolences..I knew a few of those lost and the outpouring of sympathy and compassion is the best thing any of us here in Blacksburg could ever ask for. We truly are all Hokies, and we're all healing together <3

 |  Apr 18, 2007 at 06:09 AM

bun'tock heaven! omg they are so cute. i want this to be my screensaver. bunnehs, bunnehs, everywhere! hippity hoppity hippity hoppity, lollop, lollop, lollop. ack!
