You get the 'Speechless' award

This squirrel is so soft and so perf. It's kinda like when I saw this Pomeranian pup and couldn't speak for three hours. That's how cute this squirrel is. That good.


Abigale F.—you know it's good when we're speechless. We should start a "Speechless" award.

Sweet chocolate Moses, will none of you ever learn? Even the "cutest" of squirrels are evil... EVIL, I TELL YOU!

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 07:59 AM

A tiny soft puff of cute luv!

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 08:03 AM

It's like his tail is asking the question "Do you think I'm cute?"...Yes, Yes I do you orangutan squirrel.

If this is evil, J.Bo, I don't want to be good.
Oh, wait, I never was, so it's not really an issue. Now, pardon me while I snorgle my Dark Master, Bebeh Skwerl.

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 08:11 AM


is all i'm sayin'

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 08:12 AM

J. Bo.....while i agree with you on the evil part; it is still a beautiful specimen of cuteness. all creatures have a place in our circle of life.

I love it when the bebehs heads and feets are way out of proportion with their bodies---and then the bodies start to grow and the heads and feets stay about the same size. 'Twas the same with my gerbie bebehs.

Meg, first this pic and then you had to go and put in the link to the pom?

Have you no mercy, no mercy at all??

I'm down for the count, peeps. Wake me up when it's 5:30.

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 08:31 AM

J. Bo - Love the "Sweet chocolate Moses" comment! My co-workers and I use a similar expression: "Sweet fancy Moses." Either one is great. And so is Mr. McSquirrelysons, IMO.

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 08:34 AM

There is no way, that can't be real, a squirrel that is actually cute, no way jose, has to be fake!

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 08:36 AM

Yup, that's a heckava cute squirrel! It needs to come with a cute warning label...someone could get hurt!

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 08:41 AM

You know.. jest when me thinks I've seen all the cute I can possibly see. Just when me thinks it can't POSSIBLY EVAR get ANY cuter.. this happens..

Sweet Chocolate Moses, indeed. In fact, I dub thee squirrel 'Sweet Chocolate Moses' Dat's his name now, don't wear it out.

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 08:45 AM

¡Ay! I am slain! Thank goodness he doesn't have full ear tufts yet or I'd be keeled entirely.

Anyone for a skwerl swap? I'd gladly box and ship a baker's dozen of the tubby urban grey ones for ONE of these cute lil' redheads.

(kidding 'nuffs, just skwerling around)

*is speechless*

There are literally no words to describe the impossible levels of cuteness that squirrel achieves.

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 09:03 AM

This is one of those OMG-moments.

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 09:08 AM

O M G, that is just so adorable!

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 09:19 AM

orangutan squirrel!!!

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 09:20 AM

You have GOT to be kidding me. That's a real squirrel? That's the most redonk thing Ive ever seen. The cute level is off the charts.

That's a wonderful thing to see right before I leave for Christmas vacation :)

By the way, have a great holiday, everyone!

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 09:21 AM

Is it just me or does that squirrel look like it's actually trying its best to be cute! And succeeding of course =]

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 09:58 AM

How sweet! :)

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 09:59 AM

This level of REDONK CUTENESS should come with a warning! Now how will I get ANY work done today?!?

I also don't think I'm the only one trying to restrain my jaw from munching the computer monitor - this little guy is so cute he begs to be snorgled!!!

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 10:03 AM

Thank ewe thank ewe thank ewe. I was without power for almost six days when Winter Blast 2006(tm) rolled through the Pacific Northwest and my US RDA of Cute was not able to be met. I almost starved to death of Cute Deficiency but this one little skwirl made up for the whole thing.

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 10:10 AM

*jaw slack with wonder*

I...have achieved...Cuteness Nirvana...

yeah. I got nuthin'.

*goes back to staring at the bebeh*

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 10:25 AM

I love these little guys. They (the little white bellied red dudes) moved in to my county a few years ago and are better than TV for watching and laughing. Destructive and aggressive too, but hilarious when they are not chewing their way into your roof. They can peel blueberries!!

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 10:36 AM

And doncha luv that little back foot? It looks like he needs little open-toed slippers, especially if they're fuzzy.
Imagine-- a squirrel with mules!

So cute and so small. I wish he was mine. SO SO SO SO SO SO SO CUTE

 |  Dec 22, 2006 at 11:01 AM

sweet chocolate moses? Can we add candy names to all the exclamatory swear/near-swear phrases?

Sweet *Gingerbread* Jesus!
Hot *Buttered Rum* Damn!
Dear *Lollypop* Lord!

This could be fun.

It's hard enough trying to work on the Friday before Christmas weekend.. and then I see this.. and I can't do anything else. I'm done for. I just sit here and stare at the most adorable little guy ever.
