Well, bless you, baby hedgehogs! For the sneezing and for being so incredibly cute.
These three hoglets were rescued by Wildlife Aid after they were orphaned after their mother was disturbed while giving birth. The organization has been looking after the trio (two boys and a girl) and they're steadily growing stronger.
Even a serious case of the sneezes won't keep these little guys down!

Cats are often pegged as being standoffish sorts of creatures who, when on the rare occasion are magnanimous enough to dole out the warmth of their affections, only offer it up in drips and drabs. But not all kitties are so withholding.
Meet Dorian, a cat who loves his little human Cadyn so much, he can hardly contain himself. According to this video's description on YouTube, the boy had just gotten back after spending a few days away from home, and Dorian had been eagerly awaiting his return. Even while Cadyn was trying to sleep, the caring cat couldn't keep from showering him with eager rubs of love.
Some have attempted to explain away the scene above by saying that Dorian ismerely rubbing her scent on the boy, as if he considers Cadyn to be his property. But even if that's the case, it would do little to diminish the sweetness of it.
After all, who wouldn't want to be owned by such an affectionate cat?
What could be cuter than five floppy-eared husky puppies hanging out together in the back of a car? Oh, maybe five floppy-eared husky puppies hanging out together in the back of a car doing that adorable head tilt thing that dogs sometimes do?
Here's a glorious, 58-second clip of just that:
If after watching those sweet furry faces swiveling so adorably, you're curious just what that little head gesture is all about — you're not alone. Researchers have been pondering that very question, and while some very plausible theories have been posited, the truth of the matter is that no one is certain exactly why they do it.
But to be honest, "researching" the subject is so enjoyable, it might be best to never know for sure.

The Melbourne Zoo celebrated a milestone yesterday when their 3-week-old baby pygmy hippo, Obi, took a dip into deeper waters with his mom Petre.
According to the BBC, Obi has been gaining practice in a smaller pool to test out how he would deal with the water. According to the zoo, he's a natural swimmer and loves the water.
Pygmy hippos are endangered and Obi is the first of his species to be born at the Melbourne Zoo since 1981, according to The Guardian. When he's older, he will enter a breeding program in an attempt to increase the species number.

Now it's time for a cute break.
We want to introduce you to a cat named Russell. Russell has been living and recovering at North Carolina's Animal Emergency Hospital and Urgent Care after he was burned in a house fire a year and a half ago, according to the Huffington Post. The fire destroyed his family's home and left him without the tips of his ears.
While Russell has been recovering, he's also been making friends with other animals at the clinic who are also recovering from various ailments. Most recently Russell has taken a shine to a fawn named Darla, who was discovered on someone's lawn after she most likely lost her own mother.
This West Highland Terrier named Boy couldn't help but rock out to a concert his owner happened to walk by. What's so cool about this video, however, is that Boy is 17-years-old and deaf, according to BuzzFeed.
Once Boy started feeling the rhythm of the music while on his walk, he just had to dance around. He even pulled his owner, Beril, closer to the stage and got her rocking along as well.
We love Boy and hope he continues to rock out!
