Saturday Surprise!!!

SURPRISE!!!!  It’s a Fred-in-the-Box!!!

Well, folks, it’s been a long week … what?  You say it was actually a short week, since Monday was a holiday?  Sigh.  Then it’s been an even longer week — a long, short week, as it were.  I don’t know about you guys, but I am t-i-r-e-d.  So, I’ve decided to take a little break from doing much writing today and just show you some cute/funny animals.  I like animals.  They do not waste their days (and nights) arguing over politics, climate, sports, the opposite sex, or anything.  If they have an issue with a fellow critter, they duke it out, maybe eat their nemesis, then get on with whatever business they were doing.  A simple, straightforward approach to life.  Humans, however, think they were endowed with a ‘superior’ brain, thus they spend all their time proving just how inane they really are.  And on that note … let us view some furry dudes and have something cute to start the weekend with a smile.

Hugs ‘n kisses … now who wouldn’t love these?

pygmy-marmosets

These are ‘pygmy marmosets’, and they are actually the smallest species of monkey, found in the Amazon rain forests.. Don’t they just melt your heart?

SNOWBALL FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  BRING IT ON!!!

Baby-bear

“Guys…guys….hey guys, i cant see you, are you home?? I’ve been trying to call all day but no one will answer.”

I posted the bear pic on my Facebook timeline yesterday, and people just started writing captions.  So, I decided I would use the best caption on this post.  Caption credit goes to my friend, James (Jimmy) Schrauder.  Thanks, Jimmy!

Bengal-cat

This, folks, is a Bengal cat.  No, not a tiger, a domestic cat, developed to look like exotic jungle cats such as leopards, ocelots, margays and clouded leopards. They typically weigh between 8-15 pounds.

You know I couldn’t resist including a panda!

koalas

Or a couple of snuggly koalas …

Japanese-dwarf-flying-squirrels

Awwwwww …. say ‘hello’ to these adorable Japanese Dwarf Flying Squirrels.  They are native to Japan, where they are said to be relatively common.  They grow only to about 8 inches.

baby elephant

Brrrrrrr …. this baby elephant looks rather cold, don’t you think?

baby deer

And last, but not least, a sleeping baby deer.  BAMBI!!!!!

And now, we’ve had our share of cuteness to start out the weekend.  I hope you enjoyed the animals.  Now it’s time for Filosofa to do the thing that I have been putting off for the entire summer, and clean out the storage closet out back.  Sigh.  Fortunately I have a helper … Miss Goose will be doing the heavy lifting and carting off to the trash, while I supervise and determine what stays and what goes.

I hope you all have a great weekend!  Hugs ‘n love from Filosofa!

    • Glad you liked them … it was rather lazy of me, but I am exhausted this week. Yes, I fell in love with the bear when I first saw it. If I saw that at my patio door, I might think it less cute, though. 😉

    • My pleasure … nothing quite like that “awwwww” factor to make a person smile, if only for a minute. I really want one of those pygmy marmosets, though … or a pair of them. But, alas, they wouldn’t last 2 minutes around the Significant Seven … a cricket doesn’t even stand a chance in this house! 😉

  1. From tv ad meercats called Olaf
    To labradoodles that promote ‘flash,’
    We Brits anthropomorphize most creatures
    ‘Cos they are worthy of laughs

    Yes, we do love our ‘creature comforts’ and animals send many of us into delight at their antics. What a great distraction they can be from our own self-absorbed delusions of superiority and hostility toward each other.

    For all those who have not seen our funny British advertisements or some of the best animal animations here are a few links (I’m not a big fan of making animals perform unnaturally, but the animations are fun).
