If you’re having a bad day, just watch this sleeping kitten.
Its tiny black nose, its little cushioned black jellybean toes, the halo of silver moonlight hairs on the silky black fur.
MY COMPUTER SCREWED UP AND THE GIF STOPPED AND I GOT WORRIED
shh don’t shout the kittens trying to sleep
This is one of the best gifs on Tumblr
These look like half-hamster, half-gerbil creatures. They’re really fat like hamsters but they have gerbil faces… I can’t see their tails so I don’t know for sure…….

For the first Flashback Friday I figured I’d post the photos from my first ever attempt at fox watching in 2009!
Back then I had no idea how to find and watch foxes, but having seen one by chance a few days before I went out searching for them in the same area after dark. Within minutes a pair of foxes appeared, both jumping onto the wall I was leaning against before jumping off the other side and off into the park. Hoping they’d return the same way I waited for them and after just a short period one returned and stopped right by the wall where I was able to snap a few shots before it trotted off. Not bad for a first ever attempt and it was that experience that got me hooked on fox watching.
This little cutie is a Salt marsh harvest mouse (Reithrodontomys raviventris). It was caught to measure it’s weight and length, then released. Endangered Salt marsh harvest mice are critically dependent on dense cover and their preferred habitat is pickleweed found in tidal marshes. Photo Credit: Bjorn Erickson/USFWS
Another reason to love torties; THEY ARE TELEPATHIC.
Right after making that post Polly suddenly appeared at the door and just sat there smiling at me with her “don’t you just love me” face. xD
