Teeny-Weeny Positivity Boost With Baby Meerkats (Pics)

Welcome to Monday, friends! A new week is coming, but there's still a whoooole day ahead of you to relax and get energized for the following week. And don't worry, we've got just the thing that'll really get your energy rising and put set your mood right for this week - a tiny collection of one of the most adorable teeny-weeny animals out there - widdle baby meerkats.

We know what you're thinking. "Meerkats are already tiny and adorable, can they really get any cuter?" Yes, yes, they can. Because they're a baby animals, and baby animals are always cuter than regular sized animals, that's just common knowledge.

One of our favorite things in the world is interspecies friendships. They're so cool and interesting, and the circumstances which led to those friendships are just as interesting if not more. The latest unlikely friendship that we've come across is one that seems like it's straight out of a Disney movie - a meerkat, a hyena cub, and two lion cubs.

Yeah, we know, aren't hyenas and lions mortal enemies? And isn't a meerkat merely a snack for hyenas and lions? Normally, the answer to both would be yes. But in this situation, under their special circumstances, in a zoo in South Africa, a strange and beautiful friendship has formed. 

These adorable animals all met when they were just babies. As they explain in the video: Qala - the hyena - arrived at the zoo as an orphan after her mom was caught in a farmer's trap, Safari and Sussie - the lion cubs - were rejected by their mother at birth, and Pokkel - the coolest meerkat in the world - was found simply wandering alone without its family.

Their friendship may not last forever, since both the lions and hyena are growing, and their instincts should be kicking in soon, so even playfighting might become dangerous for Pokkel. But for now, this is one of the cutest unlikely friendships we've ever seen, and we're glad that these cuties are enjoying each other.

This adorable meerkat sure is tired! But it seems that it's imperative that it stays awake. As hard as it tries to stay awake, and boy does it try, in the end, sometimes, you just got to accept it. 

This meerkat lost its battle to stay awake and we're totally feeling it. If this isn't a mood, we don't know what it, honestly. If you can manage to make it through this cute video without feeling a wave of the zzz's coming on, kudos to you. We, on the other hand, haven't been so lucky. 

Perhaps it is time for a wee little nap

Cats and meerkats! The two are completely different species yet they do share some similarities. Our favorite being the classic meerkat stance!

If you've never seen a cat in a meerkat stance, you're in luck -- we have a whole collection here. Both animals do feature the word "cat," in it's name, perhaps this stance contributes to that? Who knows. 

What we do know is that this mischievous and adorable meerkat, Timon, and real-cat Pumba. The pair are a match made in Disney heaven!
