    Today I tickled a Red Squirrel's belly :D
    I could of watched these 3 little balls of red fur all day long!

    Sadly it is estimated that Red Squirrels will be extinct on mainland UK in about 10-15 years.

    This thread has a serious, very serious "Awww-factor" and needs a warning in the title!!!

    :wink:

    Aren't they the cutest things?
    OK, next to otters!

    I didn't make it to the Otter Zentrum, but on Wednesday the sun will shine and I'll be on the road. It is a bit far - it is - more than the 1 1/2 hour drive I estimated roughly, could well be 2 hours +, but I'll go there. My mind's set.

    And then!
    I'll take the most wonderful, cutest, best .... it is late. I must be dreaming already. Whose photos could compete with YOURS when it comes to cute animals and CAPTURING their cuteness!??

    Come to the Meet-Up next year, Arch, whenever I see a squirrel (all living "wild") dash up a tree (never see them in any other way :roll: ), it still is a red one. I have never seen a grey one live before. So being here might give you the chance to spot one!
