To start your day with a smile, stop over at one of these three sites, serving up daily doses of furry cuteness.
There’s a new baby in the house! We recently adopted a nine week old gray kitten from Forgotten Cats, a cat rescue organization in Delaware.
In honor of Twilight’s arrival to our family, this week’s post is dedicated to adorable baby animals. To start your day with a smile, stop over at one of these sites.
Cute, Cuter, and Cutest
Or surprise twin fillies.
If a crib full of baby pandas doesn’t put a smile on your face, nothing will!
Sometimes the captions are laugh-out-loud funny.

For something both cute and educational, visit ZooBorns. Here you’ll get photos and stories of the latest animal births at zoos and aquariums around the world. You can search by animal, or location. See if your local zoo has any new babies to meet in person.
Israel welcomed a rare red-haired baby baboon earlier this year.

The Bottom Line
When you need a lift, visit one of these cute baby animal sites. I added them to my RSS news reader. Instead of visiting them directly, I see a summary of the latest adorable faces. Dreadful news, abhorrent 90+ degree weather for the next 7 days, and an irresistible Pile o’ Pups to turn that frown upside down.
