Meerkat Cuteness Overload

Need a cute critter fix? Watching meerkats should do the trick. As if these animals weren’t already adorable enough, it turns out they’re ticklish too. While volunteering at the Harnas Wildlife Foundation in Namibia, a traveler discovered that this rescued meerkat loves having his tummy tickled. Watch as this little guy giggles uncontrollably.

These members of the mongoose family are known for standing on their hind legs to watch for predators –– but they need sleep too. This tired animal has an incredibly tough time keeping his eyes open while trying to stay upright

Looks like this one found the perfect place to take a nap. Luckily, the dog doesn't seem to mind the meerkat using him for a blanket.

It’s hard to believe such a precious creature could be rejected, but this baby was abandoned by his parents. The good news is that he found a great new home at the zoo.
