Cute...or not? Meet Ludwik the hairless guinea pig.

Let’s all take a little break from Grumpy Cat and Lil’ Bub and even @dogsbeingbasic and welcome one more little guy to the “Famous on Instagram” clique: Ludwik the hairless guinea pig.

His owner, Agata Nowacka, rescued him from a bad pet store and nursed him back to health. He was also pretty skinny, but now he’s a plump little guy, a soft shade of pink, with a chin full of whiskers and lives in Poland.

Ludwik is rather photogenic, and his food pics are some of the cutest, whether he’s eating his greens:

Or modeling with a grape:

Or simply posing on a doughnut:

We think he’s rather adorable, even doing the most banal things, like hiding in a rain boot:

Or posing in a hot pink sweater (being hairless in Poland requires many sweaters):

Or just taking a nap (he reportedly likes a lot of naps, and we fully support this):

We think he looks a bit like a little pink rhinoceros:

Yes, we’re charmed. But not all in our office feel the same—the word “creepy” has been bandied around; we might have even heard a “WTF is that thing?” from a colleague passing by our monitor.

What do you think? Cute or...thing?
