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

Kelly Conaboy | October 26, 2011 - 2:45 pm

For this week’s Petting Zoo I was thinking about putting together the top ten list with exclusively videos of animals dressed in Halloween costumes. That seemed like a great idea when I thought of it! Very festive. But then I starting watching a bunch of videos of animals in costumes, and the thing about those kind of videos is that they are all the MOST boring videos on the whole internet. The animals never even do anything! As if just standing around and being cute in a costume is good enough. Yeah right. We have to be a little more discerning than that. To be fair, though, this countdown does contain two videos of animals dressed in costumes. LET ME EXPLAIN. Those animals are at least walking and eating. Please, I have some standards. Give me GD break here. Anyway, the rest of the animal videos are of them doing all sorts of incredible things, like eating things the way humans eat those things and also jumping around, so come on! Let’s watch ‘em! Gotta watch ‘em all! Pokemon snap!


10. Chicken Rides Tortoise

9. Pumpkin Kitty

8. Sad Koala Eats An Apple

7. Brown Panda Eating

6. Dog In A Tank Costume

5. Big Cats Play With Garbage Pizza Boxes

4. Donkey Licking Dog

3. Baby Goat Just Being A Baby Goat

2. Cat Rings Doorbell

1. Dog Comforts Dying Bird

Awww, a dog comforting a dying bird! I realize that there is a pretty big leap of anthropomorphic faith you have to take to appreciate the number one video this week, but once you take that leap it is VERY satisfying. We can all only hope to have such a wonderful dog making sad eyes at us when we die outside in the dirt someday. I love you, ya big dog. The number two video also requires a bit of a leap, imagining that a cat can actually learn to ring a bell, because of how cats don’t learn things as far as I know. But imagine! A cat learning how to ring a bell. That is a wonderful story. Everything else is just the cutest. Baby goat hopping around. (I understand that it is called a kid, PLEASE let me just call it a baby goat.) Big huge dumb brown panda eating and being the best. Adorable cat in a pumpkin costume just EATING. Ugh. That is the life. This is the life. Watching ten animal videos on Wednesdays is the life.
