Bleat, bleat, bleat. Is that all fawns can do these days? [click on fawn to go see ani-may-shons] The best part is the bellowing belly action... She sounds like a kitten.

Nice Googlage, "ˇ" :)

Lil' fawny deer wants his/her momma!

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 10:45 AM

No, no, the best part is the flip-back ear action. Do the bleats go farther with that extra "umph"?

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 10:46 AM

AAAWWW!! cute cute! i don't think i've heard sounds from a deer before... now how about sounds from a giraffe?

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 10:49 AM

Haha, awww. The video freaked my cat out; he couldn't figure out where the noises were coming from.

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 10:49 AM

Sweet little bebeh bleating!

What are those white things in the background? Salten licks?

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 10:51 AM

I think this falls under the "cute or sad" category. Poor little thing wants his mommy! Or has gas. Can't decide. Either way, cute and sad at the same time!

We went hiking a couple o'weeks ago in a nearby national wildlife refuge where there are usually lots of deer browsing in the evening. I kept hearing this little squeaking sound. We came around a bend in the trail, and there was a fawn on the uphill side of the trail, making this exact sound. So cute we just about fell over. His mama was in sight, on the downhill side, looking unconcerned. The fawn was older than this one, and I think she was sort of ignoring him.

Very cute AND educational!

What a cute little noise! :D I love that!

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 11:02 AM

It kinda sounds like a kitten. In a weird kinda way I guess. Meh.

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 11:06 AM

Awwww, it does sound like he is saying "mew".

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 11:10 AM

Bleating looks so hard! His little belly and the ear spasms. Cute spotty fawn. He sounds lonely.

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 11:10 AM

This fawn sounded like a cat to me, too.

Coincidence: the latest boxcar kitten (brown tabby) that we rescued has been named "Fawn" by my trapping partner (he's in her bathroom, so she has naming rights). But he's got a lung infection and having a hard time right now. Cross your fingers for him, peeps.

Awwww! I want the follow-up video with his mommy.

BTW- new pics and video of my new kitten (and his siblings)!

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 11:15 AM

Crossing fingers for Laurie C and Theo's kitties!!

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 11:16 AM

awwww! So cute!!

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 11:17 AM

Aw, so cute AND sad! I had no idea those guys made sounds!

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 11:19 AM

Shanchan - yes, a snout out to LC's and T.'s kits!

Oops. Wrong post.

Still: good thoughts are going out to the kitties!

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 11:26 AM

He sounds JUST like my little kitteh. Add an extra few pounds of belly fuzz, and he'd kinda look like her too. :)

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 11:31 AM

now that is cute! :)

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 11:43 AM

awwwwwwwww!!! *tears up*
get the mommy!!!!!

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 11:45 AM

Oh, how cute. Does sound just like a kitty. But doesn't look distressed to me. Seems like he's just got something to say!

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:02 PM

When Mom is away, newborn Whitetails will curl up in tall grass or fields and won't move or make sounds. This is not good during hay season. :-( They also have no scent for the first few days to protect from natural predators.

My family has fostered orphan fawns and it's a trip to see pictures of teeny tiny deer hanging out in the kitchen.

Also for Whitetail fawns, the spots are scattered for does and in horizontal lines for baby bucks. Or the other way around (I can't reach my dad on the phone right this minute to confirm).

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:05 PM

honest-to-goodness cuteness. "I want my mommy! Mommy, where are you?!!" sweet baby

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:13 PM

Awww, poor thing, did its mommy ever come back? We need a follow-up video!!

Stooges Woman :-)
 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:18 PM

Cute little guy! Now THIS is cute. But I had the sound down, so I must watch again (that, of course, is the only reason). With the sound down, he looks like he's barking! So finding out he sounds like a cat was a surprise. Thanks Meg for the picker-upper!

useta hada kitteh
 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:20 PM

Stooges Woman - considering the fencing, I'd say this fawn is an orphan and living at a deer farm/sanctuary. The deer's greatest predator these days is the automobile. With a lack of natural predators comes an increase in deer population, followed by an increase in deer-vehicular collisions, and then an increase in orphans.

Sorry to be a downer, but that's the way it is these days.

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:23 PM

Oh, my, useta - my timing was off and I hope I didn't knock down any pick-me-ups out there. I'll just go back to lovin' teh qte and wishing I had a baby deer to keep safe in my own house.

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:24 PM

awww, cute but sad. where's his mama? that is an anerable little sound he makes, tho... ><

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:30 PM

I grew up close to the forest, and the most scary thing I ever heard was the "bleating" of the grown-up deers in springtime. it was soooo scary! I thought it was some monster out there in the woods!
The sound was about as far away from these cute little meouish bleats of this one you can get. I still have nightmares about it...
how can so cute animals make such noises?

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:31 PM

With the sound off, he looks like he has the hiccups.

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:33 PM

he sounds like a squeaky toy (like dogs would play with?) when he snorts like that...lol

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:51 PM

solveig, I know exactly what you mean! I have heard deer sounding like weregoats from Hell.

And I have heard them bark just like a dog.


 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:52 PM

I am unhappy as this deer right now. I just heard that the little kitten Fawn I mentioned above, who was ailing, passed away this morning.


Little dude barely had a week in the indoors after the boxcars.

Laurie C
 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 12:56 PM

You have reduced me to tears, Laurie C. To know he passed on was sad enough, but to read the caption from when he was still alive really broke my heart.

You are doing such great work. Keep the faith. The kitties do thank you.

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 01:04 PM

AmyH, it took us four nights trapping to catch him. (sigh) I know not all feral kittens make it, I just assumed all the ones we managed to rescue *would*.

Laurie C
 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 01:10 PM

LC, I am so sorry. Your news, plus today's Daily Kitten, have left me completely choked up.

You (and CO) are the #1 Choice of Kittens.

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 01:10 PM

Aub, today's Daily Kitten (8 weeks, same age as our little guy) and the bleating fawn gave me a bad feeling about how this was going to turn out today. When I got the call, I wasn't surprised.

Laurie C
 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 01:12 PM

Laurie C, I'm so sorry- I'm glad he got a few days of warmth and love. You're doing wonderful work.

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 01:23 PM


 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 01:25 PM

that is a teeny noise!!

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 01:42 PM

That makes my ears bleat!
Really cute sound!

Netherland Dwarf rabbit, owner!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 01:42 PM

Laurie C,
You gave Fawn the kitten a warm safe place for his last days. That's a huge gift. You made a big difference in his life. I've rescued a few myself, and they can break your heart, but every moment of warmth, safety, and love for them counts.

hang in there!

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 02:42 PM

Oh darn it, Laurie C. My heart just sunk in my chest looking at that picture of Fawn. But, it's so true what everyone has said. He was warm and safe and fed and loved. That really DOES count for something, and makes all the difference.

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 03:04 PM

Well that was just anerable!

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 05:01 PM

hugs Laurie C, hugs.

 |  Sep 22, 2006 at 05:51 PM

Ack! Childhood memory utterly CRUSHED! I just talked to my dad and he said he never heard of the gender-specific spots on fawns. I told him he was the one who told me and he said, "Well, I was probably just pulling your leg." I asked him what other dirty lies he told me for his own amusement and he just laughed. Gah.

Growing up with a family full of smart-arses does not come without delayed damage. Oh, the trauma!
