Hello! It’s me again, Mudskipper Rous. MelT has decided that I have to test my cuteness level to see if I’m cute enough to have a blog. I admit, I might not be as cute and Garibaldi or Caplin, but I am doing my best. If I get a lot of (positive) comments, I get to continue. Otherwise…
You might recall that I have a black-footed ferret plush animal. Did you know that I often use it as a pillow when i’m sleeping? I don’t know if this is cute for me, but my ferret looks very cute.
Like most capybaras (I am assuming), I like playing with plush toys and I have a lot of them.
The video above shows me playing with my plush tamandua. A tamandua is also called a lesser anteatre, but I don’t think any less of him. He’s soft and he has a convenient tag to pick him up with.
Maybe I look cuter with a human in the photo. Driftwood is trying to help me out with this one. I wanted to chew on Coral’s hair, but for some reason, humans don’t like that.
I’m still pretty shy but I know humans can’t grab me while I’m climbing on their back. I think you might find this cute because I look like a masseuse. Maybe one of those that has tiny feet and walks on your back. Only my feet aren’t tiny.
Here I am walking in the grass outside. I have heard that humans like baby wild animals. I look pretty wild in this photo, except for the harness…and the leash.
Look at me! I’m at the pond. And I’m even thinking of going in. That’s a lot like a wild baby capybara. Only they wouldn’t be thinking about it I suppose. I did go swimming the next day when I knew MelT didn’t have her camera. This test is a pop quiz so I din’t know it was coming. If I’d known, I would have let her bring her camera.
Driftwood is going to help me out on this test. Everyone knows he is the cutest cat in the world. With his help I am sure to pass. Thanks little buddy!. (I get to call him that because I’m bigger than him now.)
Driftwood knows all the cute poses. Oh, and that’s not a real snake. It’s made out of railroad spikes. It can’t even move let alone stragulate a baby capybara.
I’m not sure if this is cute or not. I sure like chewing his ears though.
Here’s a video showing me doing it. You can see that Driftwood really likes it.
I don’t mind getting second place in the cuteness contest as long as I’m second to Driftwood. He’s my buddy.
Okay, I’m running out of options. If a baby capybara begging for a bottle doesn’t do it, I have only one more thing to try.
Now it’s time to make your decision. Am I cute enough or not? I appreciate honesty, as long as it’s positive. Please let me know which photo or video you think is cutest so I can work on perfecting it.
Thanks for your help!
