A Non-Cat Smile Post

I'm not always about cats. Sometimes I come across something so ridiculously cute that I have to write about it. Last week while I was at the shelter, I sat in a desk chair only to see something move in a cat crate next to the desk.

I carefully leaned forward and peered into the crate and saw:

One of the staff members at the shelter had been bottlefeeding this baby since his eyes were shut. It was love at first sight. They were going to let him go in two weeks, so I wasn't allowed to hold him because they wanted him to be a "wild squirrel".

I rubbed his little head and if there hadn't been people around, I would've kissed him right on his fuzzy little lips.

Hope this little guy makes you smile too. I love him.

Toooooooooooooooo cuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!!
I rescued a baby racoon like that once...he'd reach his little hand out of the carrier to hold onto a finger on his way to THS. I just wanted to take care of him forever!

I LOVE squirrels. Every time I see one I wish I could pet its belly. Is that weird?
