What is more dull than a discreet diary? One might as well have a discreet soul! - Henry Channon 1897-1958
I'm aware this is a bit species-ist, but I've never really been able to find something I can't cuddle and hug to be cute. I've been able to admire the beauty of friends' herpatological and other friends (lizards, snakes, fish, inspects) but I've afraid I've always been a bit "WTF" about statements about their cuteness. Sorry Jae, but give me a mammal every day of the week!
LOL... Jim cuddles him, and snuggles with him. He's snuggly! But I know what you mean. My number 1 favourite species of pet is still a cat. I miss my cats :(
