The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

By Kelly Conaboy / September 26, 2012

This might be giving away a little too much about my own life, and I apologize in advance, but last week a friend of mine got a new puppy and a few days ago I went to her apartment so she could “socialize” the puppy, because up until that point he had only been around her and her boyfriend and she wanted to see how it would deal with being around other people, and OH. MY. GOODNESS. YOU GUYS. If you ever get the chance to socialize a puppy, I implore you to take whoever is giving you that chance up on that chance because it is the best. One of the sweeter tasks you could ever accomplish. So. That’s that. We have some animal videos for you today! Rather than spend any more time talking about people you don’t know and gushing about puppies you’ll never meet, let’s get to watching those videos. Huh? Perfect! They’re all good!

10. Corgi Puppy vs. Door Stop

9. Kitten Having A Nightmare

8. Another Cat Sitting On A Bench

7. Turtle Attack

6. Parrot Sings “Yo Ho (A Pirates Life for Me)”

5. Yoga Elephant

4. Cat And Ape In Diaper Hang Out

3. Dog V. Dog Stroller Race

2. Grumpy Cat

1. Chameleon “Washes Hands”

I’ll tell you, it was a pretty close call between “Grumpy Cat” and “Chameleon Washes Hands” this week. The Internet has been going crazy over both of them and, more importantly, I also love both of them. BUT! As it turns out, the chameleon “washing its hands” is just a little better. CONGRATS, CHAMELE! Dog Vs. Dog stroller race is just very good. The ape in the diaper is so freaking adorable I don’t even know what to do or say about it. And, finally, yoga elephant wins fifth place, both because it is an elephant (which generally puts it somewhere near the top five) and because it is very good at yoga, and then also because it is in a zoo, which is sad. CONGRATULATIONS, WINNERS! And congratulations to us. Another perfect week in animal videos.
