If this doesn’t just melt your week away, well then I don’t know what. We’ve talked before about the adorability of baby Sea Lions, and I think it goes without saying that I’d give up something valuable to cuddle with one.
Well, J.R. Gilkinson — a California sailor got to do just that when a sweet little sea lion hopped up on his family boat and snuggled in his lap. No joke. You have to watch this video. It looks just like my hound dog Sophie when she’s starved for attention.
Gilkinson spoke to the Huffington Post and was clearly moved by his one-on-one snuggle-fest with the little guy —
“It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had. I appreciated every second because I didn’t know how long it was going to last. He wanted to come rest on me. So we let him.”
GAH! I LOVE SEA LIONS!
