My dad is the only person in America who still sends chain emails. (I think they probably still do it in China, because Web sites aren’t allowed.) Anyway, I usually ignore them because I’m terrified that they will be horribly inappropriate and cause our company’s Web people to come up and light my computer on fire. But one today was pretty interesting.
I don’t have a link to share (because, again, it’s a CHAIN EMAIL), but the photographic credit apparently goes to Jeff Moore. Check this freaking oddity out. Women, be prepared: it’s an adorable tiny animal.
This tiny deer was delivered by Caesarean section at a wildlife hospital after a car killed his mother.
Little Rupert, who is so small he can fit in an adult’s hand, was born after vets failed in their battle to save his mother.
At just six inches tall and weighing just over a pound, he is now in an incubator in the intensive care unit at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire. He has only recently opened his eyes.
Les Stocker, founder of Tiggywinkles, said, “Rupert’s mother had very severe injuries. We brought him out and got him breathing, and then he went into an incubator on oxygen. He is now being fed by a tube.”
Tucked up: Rupert in an incubator.
Rupert pulls a striking pose for the camera..
Staff members are optimistic that Rupert, now five days old, will make a full recovery.
“Deer are very, very tricky, but this one has spirit.. He’s an extremely feisty little guy and quite pushy,” Mr. Stocker said.
Asleep: Rupert takes 40 winks.
Now, how can I figure out how to get this into Pax and Mrs. Pax’s new pad? And would it be more or less creepy than this?
