I love animals that could scratch my face off.

Honestly, my heart is heavy for the people of Haiti this morning.

Only one thing could possibly cheer me up
without fail and that is photos of tiny animals.

So I spent some time over at Cute Overload
and found comfort in...

This little fella

and these wide eyed buggers

and cute little bunny feet

and a hedgehog dressed as a cowboy

and a hamster that is very proud of her Jello mold.

and a Jedi squirrel

and this little couple just breaks my heart right in two

I think that this one looks like Nellie Olson.

I WANT THE MONKEY!!! I was at a work trip in Nashville one year and was reading the paper in the early morning hours...I opened up the classified section and, wouldn't you know it - monkey for sale!!! Only 2k! So I called the hubs and told him my plan of bringing the little guy home on the plane...he laughed and said he'd be worried, but we didn't have 2k...booooo!!

They are cute, but I don't "get" hedgehogs as pets. They are so un-cuddly.

Oh so cute. I must admit, it did make me smile. but I am not a big hedgehog fan myself.

The hampster and her jello mold...Tiffany Box blue is really in style around here although I don't think I'd use them for my cabinet color...

thanks for stopping by on my SITS day! I really enjoyed all the comment love, so I'm passing some along! I'm with you on the trying to stop thinking about Haiti because it's just so devastating. The monkey is cheering me up though...

Darn good thing my cat wasn't looking at the monitor, he would have quite possibly attacked it!! Slim pickins outside right now with the snow...

My son subscribes to CO's feed. As a matter of fact, he is yammering about it right now.
