This is such a cute story, I had to share it. These poor baby meerkats lost their mummy when they were just 2 days old, so they were given a surrogate mum – using a cuddly toy and a hot water bottle. The 5 orphaned pups have adapted nicely to their new mum and are growing fast.

You can’t not like meerkats, it’s not allowed. I think everyone fell in love with them when Meerkat Manor was first shown on TV. Watching the team drive around in their Suzuki Vitara 4×4 or whatever it was, finding different groups of meerkats, naming them all so we all got attached to them and then got upset when they were killed or kicked out of the group, and of course showing countless shots of them Standing Up when they look really cute. And who doesn’t like the Compare the Meerkat adverts? I don’t care how annoying it is, the guy is cute!
