My husband calls my Chihuahua "Meerkat" all the time. She's cute though.

It's a bit cruel to separate them again

The real animal cruelty is that they're taking that baby away from its mama.

From TFA:

Runt Wilson faced death as his real mother snubbed him

So it would have been less cruel to let it die?

Right, I mean, by now it's so imprinted with "dog" and human presence, will it even integrate in the wild?

I guess it probably will, they use dogs a lot for rehabbing animals and meerkats are pretty social, right? Still, who doesn't want a pet meerkat, like a ferret, but not an asshole.

WHATCHA FARKING ABOUT MOMMA?

OMG that is cute!
Meerkats love harmonicas! If you go to the zoo take one along and play it for them. They will stop what they're doing and come stand in front of you and stare and sway. I discovered this when I worked at the zoo. It's a great trick to use when photographing them as you can make them look in any direction you want. Do it.

D'awwww. That is ridiculously adorable :3

It also works on crowds of Japanese tourists. Try it.

It's  not going back to the wild. Just back to the zoo.

They're talking about his adopted mama. Reading comprehension is your friend. TFA said that they are going to take him away from the chihuahua and send him back to the meerkats.

Adorable mix. My boy is Pomhuahua.

He's such a ham, whenever I take pictures of my crochet, Louie gets in the pictures and demonstrates how you use blankets. Or blankets make him tired... one of the two, either way, Louie is a ham.

In either case, weaning happens. For meerkats, "[y]oung are weaned between 49 and 63 days." TFA says that Wilson the meerkat is two months old. Therefore, as long as he's healthy, he's the right age for weaning.

It won't be fun for either the chihuahua or the meerkat, but weaning never is. It's not cruel so much as one of those bittersweet facts of life. They'll adjust. No worries.

Senna, my girl, is a night owl. Waking up in the AM is not her thing, so when we move from bed to couch, this is her standard reaction:

A ham, huh?  Mine's camera-shy.  What's his personality like?  Missy's sweet - very fun-loving and eager to please, though she thinks everything within eyesight is her domain to guard.

I always thought Poms were assholes.  Maybe Missy is, but she's my asshole, so I can't see it.
