Dear baby hippo Fiona, will you be our valentine? Love, the internet

Love, thy name is Fiona.

The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden's premature baby hippo has captured the hearts of a large swath of Greater Cincinnati. (And frankly, a lot of people elsewhere, too.)

Every new photo of Fiona's progress, from her first steps to her steadily increasing weight, elicits an internet chorus of coos. (As WCPO cartoonist Kevin Necessary has pointed out, she may be the one thing we can all agree on in these contentious times.)

In honor of our collective moments of "squee," Kevin has created this Valentine's Day e-card for you to send Fiona. Just fill out the fields below to show the zoo that you're totally #TeamFiona, too. And if you would like to donate to Fiona's care fund, click here. Donations will help cover the cost of providing the level of support she needs.
