You might need insulin when you see this.

I never outgrew my infatuation with cuteness, especially cute fuzzy animals like this little guy. I’m not quite sure what sort of animal that is, but it’s freaking adorable.

  1. LOL! No, that is not cute at all. You can have him, he’s all yours. πŸ˜‰

    Otters however, are pretty darn cute. We have a pair of river otters here that actually crossed the street in the cross walk. It was absolutely adorable and of course I had no way to take a picture for you, but I thought you would have really enjoyed seeing them.

    • I love river otters! We have a nature center here that has two river otters–male and female. They didn’t breed last year. But omg I could stand there and watch them play forever. I swear they KNOW how cute they are! They MILK it! They are very smart and will come right up to the window and squeak , then dive back into the water.

  2. What is that animal in the picture above? A possum? I can’t stand rats or mice. I lived with mice, and when people put up “cute” of mice, my revulsion is there. I almost need to know what it is, to decide if it’s cute. A possum is fine, a rat is not. I know this is hard to explain. LOL

    • I ‘m not sure actually. I don’t care for rats or possums and it does look like it’s probably in that family of animals, but it’s still really cute. Maybe it’s the little sweater, idk.

  3. It’s an opossum. A baby (o)possum that is. OMG! So cute! I’m with you on the cuteness thing. What’s to outgrow though? πŸ˜‰ I love all the animals. πŸ™‚

    I used to have pet rats and even had a couple that had babies. It was so cool to wake up one morning to squeaks of cute little pink babies. I found a home (all ppl I knew) for each one of those babies, except the one I kept.

    Yeah, I think it’s time for a shot of insulin. Lol.

      • I saw one in the middle of a back road once that had been hit but was still alive. It was raining and I got out of the car. I wanted to help so much but was afraid to touch it. I went home and got something I could put it in but still didn’t know what I was going to do. When I got back it was gone. Still makes me sad when I think about it.

        They are creepy looking but I can’t stand the idea of any critter suffering like that.

    • My son used to have a pet rat, Ratsputin. LOL
      He was really smart and got almost as big as a cat. He was actually a good pet and pretty clean. After two years he got tumors and had to be put to sleep. Most rats and many ferrets die of cancer. It’s something in their genes.

      • Lol cute name.

        Unfortunately all mine died within three years of being born. Yeah, they don’t live very long. One reason I hear people claim they no longer want to take them on as pets. Its’ too hard emotionally in such short periods of time.

        I had friends who had a couple ferrets. The first time I met their first one I was afraid of it biting me. Turns out he was one of the sweetest things ever.

        He used to like to curl up in the styrofoam inside the Scrabble box on the floor when we’d play that game. So cute.

          That’s why I want a TORTOISE. I had one as a child in England but when we migrated to Australia (I was 12 and had no say in it) he was given away. Not allowed into Oz, which has no tortoises of its own. As the scapegoat (of four children) I had got very attached to him and have wondered ever since if he’s still alive.

          100 years is not uncommon if owners know what they’re doing.

          I’m glad safirefalcon identified this critter. I actually thought it might be faked.

          • I’ve heard that about tortoises and turtles too. Some tortoises live to be 300, I’ve heard. Large birds like parrots also live as long or longer than a human lifespan. I heard most parrot breeders make you sign something that ensures you have someone to care for it after you die. It might even be the law in some places. Because with an animal that will probably live longer than you, you have to make some kind of arrangement for it.

        • My son had a pet ferret that died a few months ago. He was 5 years old and had pancreatic cancer. That type of cancer (and adrenal gland cancer) are extremely common in ferrets. But unlike humans with pancratic cancer who are in unbearable pain, my son said Ollie (the ferret’s name) did not suffer, he was just lethargic and tired all the time.
          Here’s the little post I put up when Ollie died: https://luckyottershaven.com/2014/10/21/saying-goodbye-to-a-friend/

  4. Why isn’t there a ‘reply’ thingy on the scintillating tortoise conversation? Ne’mind.

    An old woman was found peacefully dead in her home in England with a sign in the fireplace that said “There’s a tortoise in the garden”. She’d had it about 70 years and called it Timothy. Her offspring took it to a vet to be euthanased. He said sure, charged them (hahaha) then despatched Timothy to a tortoise sanctuary. I was back in the UK at that time and, you guessed it, working at the sanctuary as a volunteer. Turned out Timothy was a girl — happens all the time.

    That was about 15 years ago and as far as I know ‘Timothy’ is still alive and well and living with a new owner in Devon. Lonesome George, on the other hand, died two years ago en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lonesome_George. I was in Galapagos in 1983 and met this icon of the WWF.

    Sorry. Have the aspie obsessiveness, me.

      That’s a funny story about Timothy. Thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚

      It’s awesome so many of us ACONS are Aspies and find each other online. πŸ˜€

  5. I like possums. (I’m weird, I know.) We used to have one we called Bernie that came around our back door looking for handouts. At the time there was a skinny stray cat who used to hang out on our deck, looking sad and hungry, and I’d put cat food out for him (the last thing I needed was another cat, but I can’t stand to see any creature starve). Turns out possums love cat food, and Bernie started stealing Sid’s food, and Sid was too much of a wuss to fight him for it.

      • Raccoons (another animal people love to hate) also love cat food. We had a couple of baby raccoons show up in our yard, under my husband’s office window, one day last summer. They kept crying for their mother, but she never came. We were afraid the babies would starve, so we fed them cat food, which they absolutely loved. They were really cute and lots of fun to watch.

        • I heard about raccoons eating cat food. They will eat just about anything. I love raccoons! ❀
          Have you ever seen the video about the raccoon who destroys a kitchen? Here you go. I;m about to post it because it's f*cking hilarious.
