In most places of business, if your boss catches you wasting time looking at LOLCATS on the internet, you’d get in trouble. Luckily I work in an office where my boss regularly posts links to kitten cams so I don’t need to worry but the next time you get in trouble, offer up some new exciting evidence. Studies have shown that looking at baby animals while you work actually improves work performance. Yeah, I’m pretty shocked too.
Most of us could use a caffeine fix on Monday mornings but this baby hedgehog needs their morning cup ASAP. Oh who am I kidding? It’s a hedgehog, a baby hedgehog at that! Its only job is looking cute and it’s got that down pretty well if you ask me. Perhaps it even deserves a raise. Apologies if this makes you even sleepier this morning. It will be worth it.
I just hope this lamb is healthy, and this isn’t a sign of a serious neurological disorder. Because it is so funny to watch this lamb jump in the air for the sheer heck of it. In fact, if you’ve been sitting all day, and you are in a carpeted room, feel free to do exactly what this lamb is doing. But be careful. We don’t want you to injure yourself, even in the name of joy and fun.
You guys, this kitten is so scared of the vacuum! This video is only 12 seconds long, and if you watch it over and over again, the kitten doesn’t get any less scared! Someone, be a hero and pick up this kitten!
This woman loves sloths but I’m not quite sure she’s got a handle on what “stressful” means. These little baby sloths seem to love getting pampered at bath time and in fact, I’m quite jealous at their regular regimen. But I’ll forgive because well, adorable.
So, among the things that happen in the daily life a normal New Zealander, besides a day trip to the set of The Hobbit — adorable baby fur seals sneaking into one’s home through the cat door and crashing on the couch! Tauranga resident Annette Swoffer came home this past weekend to find the baby seal pictured above just making itself at home on her couch. Want to see more? Full-sized pictures and a video are after the jump!
Guys, guys: We have news about the ginger seal who was shunned by her pod! And it’s good news! After being captured on heartbreaking film by photographer Anatoly Strakhov, the abandoned baby seal — now named Nafanya, after a Soviet cartoon character, to whom she bears a slight resemblance — now has a comfy, nurturing home at the Akvatoria dolphinarium. And unsurprisingly, she is a big hit with the crowds! Awww, it makes you want to hug the Earth!
You may recall that this time last week, we brought you the story of the baby seal who was shunned by his family because his fur was ginger. He was rescued. Well, before you reach for your second box of tissues, we have good news about this five-day-old bald baby penguin: he was also rescued. But the bad news is that he was also shunned by his family. But remember the good news we just mentioned in the previous sentence, and add to that this: new feathers. He has been re-introduced to his family and he now has feathers. However, the people at Pixar are looking at this and getting ideas for a new movie called Bald Penguin and Ginger Seal: An Iceberg Made From Tears.
Okay, before you reach for the Kleenex because of the thought of that adorable baby seal being abandoned by all those other seals in the background, here is the good news: he has been adopted and is being cared for by a very nice person. There is no bad news, except for the mean seals, who are mean. Now that you have this information, it’s okay to imagine the Hulk theme music while viewing the picture above. (More pics and the whole story after the jump.)
