THIS JUST IN: Modified mice are good at snuggling

Those clever Japanese scientists have managed to turn off the "I’m skeered!" gene in mice, to make them fearless. An article on CBC says scientists claimed "The mice approached the cat, even snuggled up to it and played with it" proving mice are genetically hardwired to be skeered of cats. [Head tilt]

If loving you is wrong—I don’t wanna be right

[Sing in Luther Ingram voice]
Your mama and daddy say it’s a shame
It’s a downright disgrace
Long as I got you by my side
I don’t care what your people say

One small, one large interspecies snorgler

There’s nuthin’ better than a little interspecies snorgling, ESPESHE when there is a great size difference in the size of the two ani-pals. Somehow, seeing a little small guy and a big guy cuddle is even prosher. Don’t get me started on the Japaneseness of this.

I’m gonna crawl over to your butt and snuggle by it, Amy F.
