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

Here in New York the weather has begun cooling down, whispering beautiful promises of fall to all of our bare legs, which are that way because we didn’t check the temperature before we left the house and mistakenly wore shorts and are freezing cold when otherwise, if we’d worn pants, we would’ve been perfect. Even with that mistake, though, the weather has been THE BEST! The only problem with it is that it makes me want to have a dog even more badly than I already did. Or, more honestly, it makes me want to have a roommate or friend who lives nearby with a dog that I could walk only when I really felt like it, which, to be honest again, would be rarely. But still! THIS WEATHER, YOU GUYS! Dog walking weather. Animal video watching weather. Let’s watch these great vids and then go outside and pretend walk the dogs we don’t have!

1. Screaming Sheep

SCREAMING SHEEP YOU ARE THE BEST! I saw that video last night and sent it to people on gchat who I wasn’t even talking to and who I didn’t even WANT to talk to. That’s how good it is. Great job, sheep. Congrats. That monkey video is great but it is also very sad and makes me very nervous for the poor monkey’s hand. I hope he’s careful and someone took it away from him immediately after filming the video and then gave him something good to eat. I cannot even talk about that owl video right now it is so adorable and makes me want an owl so bad, so, MOVING ON, the two cats in #4 and #5 really just get it. So. Good for them. CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF US!
