Please hold off until later
If you see small sqwerls.

“It seems like just yesterday that we released the last of our spring baby squirrels but the fall baby season has already begun. If your trees need trimming, waiting until November or December is the best thing you can do for squirrel moms and the babies in their care…short of planting more trees, of course. Thanks for looking out for wildlife!” -California Wildlife Center FB.

100% Guaranteed To Make Ya Pass Out

If you’re sitting at a desk now, move anything away from in front of the monitor. That’s where your head is gonna land.

The Force is strong with this one.

(As sender-inner Rosie puts it, “Warning: Sooooo much cute all in one lovely place!! Helmets should be mandatory for viewing!”)

More Hummingbirds, If You Please!

From The C.O. Mailbag:

“Dear C.O., I love Cute Overload, but I have noticed that you don’t post enough hummingbirds. Hummingbirds conform to many Rules Of Cuteness, namely: #14: If an everyday, small item makes you look small, it’s cute. But they also have peeping tongues and disapproving looks! And they nest in the funniest places. I am sending you some photos from this slideshow at the Cornell Labs of Ornithology. These aren’t mine, so I can’t give permission, but here is a link to the slideshow.” -Anna S.

Poll: Are Creepy Crawlies Cute?

I’ll draw the line at Spiders (except for the ones who do YMCA)- but take a look at these fellows. Sender-Inner Anne S. says, “Finally, there’s proof! Baby snails are cute too! (And start out really really really tiny. It’s surprising they survive at all with this teeny weeny size and their rather obvious lack of speed.”)

What do you think? Cute, or Creepy? Take the Poll!
