The zoo’s new baby otter will make it all better

I love baby animals, and as a professional pigeon punter and bird hater and cat hater, you’re probably like “LIAR FIRE PANTS!”

But seriously, sometimes when I need a smile, I just go to Google and type “baby [insert random animal]” and then I’m all fawning and squeeing and I start pronouncing it CYOOOOOOT!

But I will never say adorbs. Promise.

Let’s try it. Baby ………. platypus! (click photos for sources):

OMG. SO CYOOOOOT! SQUEEE! I WANT TO NAME THEM ALL PERRRRRRYYYYY!

See what I mean?

Let’s try another. Baby ………… anteater!

OMG. CYOOOOOOOT! I WANT A BABY ANTEATER! I WILL FEED IT BABY ANTS!

I bet you never thought a baby anteater would make you ovulate like that.

The only animal that is not adorable when it’s born is a pigeon, and that’s how you know Satan invented them. No way God created THIS monstrosity:

Are you trying to kill them with fire too? Just me?

Anyway, the Pittsburgh Zoo is introducing its baby otter tomorrow and my buddy @Herbie got a sneak preview and shared these pictures on Twitter and said I could share them with you!

OMG. THE CYOOOOOOOT! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

I’ve named him Poopsie and he is my snugglemuffin.

Adorbs.

    They like to hold hands and if this video doesn’t make you SQUEEEEEEEEE then there is a cold, black hole where your heart used to be (rhyming not intended). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epUk3T2Kfno

    At first I thought you wrote “Absorbs” and I was thinking, “well, maybe, if you apply him right…”

    THIS IS TOO MUCH.

    One of my favorite is baby moose. It’s like they need to grow into all of their large body parts.

    Ooooof – I don’t know. The platypus and the eyes on that anteater are making me feel sort of squicky. And dear God, the pigeons – that is horrible.

    Did you know that the sea otters hold hands to keep from drifting apart from each other? Doesn’t that just make you want to hug a puppy? I can’t handle all the cute.

    What is the matter with all of you? The baby pigeons are just as cute as the other babies. I love them.
