You try to pounce on them all
But it’s too hard

You are a cute little guy
Looking for berries?

(“While camping my hubby was chopping wood for the fire when he uncovered a family of wee little deer mice who were living in the woodpile. This little guy got left behind as they raced for cover. He was so amazingly Cute we just wanted to pick him up and snorgle him! Who could resist that face?” -Lynne H. from Colorado.)

Friday Haiku: Sqwerls

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.

Friday Haiku Too: Christine Takes Her Shot

IMG_8244_CO“Tiny McSnailersons was almost baked into a red currant muffin the other day. Having escaped this fate, he acquiesced to posing for pictures, perfectly showing off Rule of Cuteness #14 in the process. I sense a Haiku just waiting to be composed here!” -Christine H.

So, we said to Christine, “Sounds great! Write it!” And here it is:

Tiny little snail
Your world gets picked for muffins
You bid farewell

Friday Haiku: Flutterby

20140801_163513Fluttering to me
The little gray flutterby
Is a quiet sort

From Laura A: “I’ve been a huge fan of your website for years, and whenever I’m in a bad mood I just scroll to C.O. and I always feel better!”

“As much as I love animals, I’ve never had the time to own one myself as I travel a lot…”

“…but I was at the DC tennis tournament last week and this little guy came and landed on me and crawled all over my hand and then my Kindle.”

“I have no idea what kind of moth/butterfly he is, but the eyes are just magnificent and his little antennae are adorable.”

“Thought I’d share in hopes that you found him as cute as I do!”


Friday Haiku: Snail Tales

photoMeet at the tree stump
We’ll swap tales and tell lies
Til the evening comes

“Hi, Here is a picture of some snails socialising* on a tree stump this morning in my garden in Thornton Heath aka ‘poor man’s Croydon.’ You may have heard of it on Crimewatch. [Nope. -Ed.]
Many thanks, Andy A.” [*British spelling alert! -Ed.]
