"Squee" is online lingo describing the squeal of delight one makes when presented with a photo or video that's "totes adorbs." We often share squee photos on our front page Friday afternoons; we'll archive a selection of them here for those rough days when you could use an extra hit.

Hidden away in the cloud forests of Colombia and described as half cat, half teddy bear, this cute creature is the first new carnivore to be discovered in the Western Hemisphere in 35 years. The olinguito has hinted as its existence for years, having been seen in the wild, tucked in museum collections and even exhibited in zoos. But now scientists at the Smithsonian Institute have confirmed that the loveable mammal as a new species of the order Carnivora - ''an incredibly rare discovery in the 21st Century." Weighing two pounds and with wooly orange brown fur, it lives in the cloud forests of Colombia and Ecuador, as its scientific name neblina - Spanish for fog - suggests.
