Time once again to pay special honor to those cute critters who seem to scamper everywhere. The National Wildlife Federation suggests you share your “squirrel stories.” Perhaps a squirrel helped you with your homework. Or cosigned an auto loan. Whatever it was, tell us how squirrels affected your life.

I shan’t deceive you any longer, my dearest; I’m afraid you’ve been living a lie. I’m a rat, Daphne. There, I’ve said it. I’m a rat and that’s all I’ll ever be. Oh, what a cad you must think me, leading you along this twisting, mazelike primrose path of deception.
What we look for in the cute is that little something extra, the it factor, that elusive je ne sais quoi. If only we could somehow put our finger on it…
“Are you cute, Hermione? Are you cute?” She put her finger on it, Josh N.!
No, they did not just trot in a whippet wearing the AT-AT costume at the end…
MobileMeeshe does it again!

Who won, naotakem?
One of the most enigmatic endings in film occurs in 2001: A Space Odyssey, in which Keir Dullea sees himself age and die, becoming at last the “starchild” that returns to Earth. An early draft of the script included an additional transformation into a “starbudgie” that nibbles on Australia, mistaking it for a giant cuttlefish.
Alicia E. writes: “Hi! I love this website, thanks for all the adorableness. Here is a picture of my budgie Tukey meeting my baby Sebastian when we first brought him home from the hospital.”
Now that my appearance in the Cute Overload 2012 Page-a-Day calendar has established my star quality, I think I’m entitled to certain perks…
… a private trailer, catered lunches, my own personal trainer, oh and I insist on choosing my own makeup and styling team…
Nehama V. says: “Max checks himself out in the Cute Overload Calendar! It seems to have affected his ego, now that he’s a celebrity he sees no reason to waste time posing for a silly photo!”
Remember when we were in grade school together?
“♪ ♫I love you, you love me♪ ♫ ”
Hold on, let me turn down The Wheels on the Bus so we can talk.
Some things never get old, Greg M. Thanks for the great before and after pics!
