Baby Squirrels Need You To Coo At Their Adorableness

Speaking of squirrels, this look at the high number of injured and orphaned squirrels that are the size of a human's palm (!) being brought in to the Empty Cages Collective was sorta heartstring-tugging — particularly the part that points out that "virtually all of these babies lost their parents to the perilous vagaries of animal urban life – cars, the destruction of habitats and rat poison." And there are not one but two photos of baby squirrels being fed by humans!

Ohhhh, fed BY humans, not TO humans. Then nevermind.

After these damned things colonize your attic, you'll faintly smile when you see one turned inside-out by an SUV.

I have no sympathy for squirrels. They screw up my garden. I do, however, have immense respect for the ability of their tiny squirrel brains to accurately calculate trajectories.

A squirrel imprinted on me once. He was lost in my backyard, smaller than the smallest kitten. He still lives there.
