The Petting Zoo: Lots Of Videos Of Cats But Also Some Other Little Guys!

Dear Everyone: I love animal videos. Do you love animal videos? Tough to say. I have no idea how you feel about them because humans have LOTS of emotions and also because I do not know you. In any case, starting today I would like to, each week, bring you a collection of animals videos that I’ve found particularly charming. I hope you enjoy it. If you don’t, maybe you should go fly a kite. Hit the road. Take a hike. I had a teacher in high school who would say, “Go play in traffic.” I don’t recommend that one, but let’s just say you should either get out of Dodge or learn to open your heart just the tiniest bit because you’re about to be hit with like a LOT of animal videos. And so here they are let’s start with this fun cat video!

Honestly, I don’t fault this cat at all. Just this morning I put a PopTart, because I am an adult who treats her body as a temple, in my toaster oven and was standing there literally ONLY waiting for the PopTart to pop up and when it popped up I jumped into the air because I was so startled. Pop-up toasters can be very startling. (Via DailyPicks)

This video takes place at the San Diego Zoo, where it is panda Yun Zi’s second birthday. Awww. But. Is it a FAKE cake? Can pandas not eat real cake? What is going on here. Why didn’t they make this cake out of bamboo or something that pandas like and can eat? Unless it is a real cake. Then why does this real cake look so fake? And also, you know the last time someone made ME a cake for my birthday? I DON’T EVEN REMEMBER. So I guess whatever, at least this panda got a fake cake. I bet its friends even got it cards and stuff because this panda probably really goes all-out for its friends birthdays and the least its friends could do is just get this panda a stupid birthday card.

Awwwwwwww, penguin! You poor little guy! I love you! I will play with you! Come over to my apartment! I have a window unit air conditioner so I think it will be cold enough! (Via SayOMG.)


PS: Is everything ok with this cat?

Awwww. Duckling on a treadmill. You know, there was a short period of time when I would go to the gym and run on a treadmill. That may not seem very strange because you don’t know me, but trust me, it was VERY strange. I can barely listen to LCD Soundsystem’s “All My Friends” anymore without having horrible gym flashbacks. Because that is what I’d listen to while I was running. What? What are we talking about. Awww look at how cute this little guy is. (Via Abroath.)

This is a hedgehog and it is eating something off of a spoon. That is what this video is. Maybe you don’t think this video is a good one because maybe you think this is a little gross? But no. You are so wrong. This video is adorable. You should eat your lunch with this video every day. Make it as big as it can be on your desktop at work and play it on a loop while you eat your lunch.

This is honestly just the cutest thing ever and I apologize that I had to ruin your life with it because now you won’t be able to look at anything else cute and feel like that thing is really THAT cute ever again. Sorry. R.I.P. cute stuff. (Via StuffIStole.)
