PocketDeer™

"Rupert" the teeny deerski is here just in time to distract everyone from their economic woes.

This little guy was apparently delivered by deer C-Section (Deersarian?!) after his Momma got hit by a car... See this and MANY more photos at the main story over at the Cute Daily Mail.

Has anyone read the article yet? Because if I am reading this correctly, the name of the wildlife hospital that rescued this adorableness is called TIGGYWINKLES. I, for one, am totally moving to England right NOW.

I can't decide which is cuter -- the baby deer or Tiggywinkles Hospital!

Melanie

Had no idea they look like cute spotty gremlins so soon after being borned.

Tiggywinkle is the name of a hedgehog in a story by Beatrix Potter, the hospital is named after it (in case you didn't know!).

How utterly darling! I would like to just cuddle him and take him home. What an adorable baby!

LOL @starling! Good catch--I'd say that's definitely the Deathly Hallows ring. Watch out, dear deer-caretaker!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:55 AM

"The small deer is also known as the barking deer"

Paunchie
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:59 AM

As if this whole thing wasn't enough to give me a brain hemorrage (sp?) we've got "Tiggywinkles" too??? Ahn...

marmar
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:03 AM

this deer totally needs a pocket pets tag instead of just unusual animals

youko
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:04 AM

His name is *Rupert*, peeps! RUPERT!!! Born in *Tigglywinkles* Hospital!

If that's not just the proshest name for the tiniest, cutest, softest little British buckaroo bebé...!

MadameX
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:05 AM

I will refrain from any tick or Photoshop jokes.

Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital -- that's all I have to say!

Fegli
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:28 AM

Wow. I saw an article about him on Fark (of all things!), but none of the pictures in the showed any scale... I didn't realize he as so tiny!

@starling: I see what you mean! Heehee... I could see DD doing that, actually. ^_^

If I had the doe, I would fly to England and fawn over him.

Tiggywinkle = hedgehog AND possibly the cutest word ever.

Beebee deer! It reminds me of a real life version of Deery-Lou!

But seriously, those pics brought tears to my eyes. Oooooh and I second the request for a close up of teeny hoooves...

Technically, it's Saint Tiggywinkles, and it's awesome:

Do you have any money? If you do, give it to them.

edward
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 10:02 AM

BTW, this would make a great "It's dangerous to go alone! Take this!" picture. ^_^

Oakley, if you lived in Buckinghamshire, you could hoof it and save a few bucks.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 10:22 AM

I feel so horrible saying this, but the poor guy is just going to get hunted in a few years. :( the fate of a little fawn baby is never a good one. :(

Melissa
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 10:35 AM

Melissa, are you sure of that? I think the UK has plenty of protected parks where this little guy can browse happily, just like we have here in the US. I live near a place called Cades Cove, NC which is a protected deer paradise- observe the deer tranquility;

Here's to hoping this will be a protected park deer.

non-official COXCU - hope that helps, it's not such a pretty COXCU though, the hooves are a little rough there.

Catch a bebeh deer, and put eet een your pocket, save eet for a rainy day...

pyrit
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:01 AM

Meg, close up shop.

How can you find something cuter than a baby deer rescued by humans and fits into one palm?

Unless someone turns one in tomorrow where we find out a hedgehog and elaphant rescued the baby deer and are raising it together.

karen
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:05 AM

Wow. It's kinda sad that some people can look at a photograph of a baby animal and see nothing but tragedy and death. It's a photo of a baby animal and that's all.

If the deer lived in Yellowstone, would you say "poor guy is just going to succumb to a predator of some sort"?

Can you not just enjoy the cute picture? Really?

Michelle S
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:13 AM

*sniff*....Bambi...the true story...sorta...*sob* Sweet little guy....

Rosie A.
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:27 AM

Sorry, I definitely enjoy the picture, I was just sayin'. I hope they keep him in a wildlife park, that would be awesome.

Melissa
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:42 AM

They're bound to give it to an estate with a big deer park when it's grown. Bebbehs like that never end up back in the wild.

WILL HE GUIDE MY SLEIGH TONITE?

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 11:58 AM

I'm one of the many who sent this in. My heart skipped a beat when I saw it had been posted, but was disappointed when my name wasn't mentioned :(

I completely agree with fish eye no miko. x3 That's probably the best phrase for this pic. XD

This deer will grow up to save the world.
