Man, what a lousy day! For me specifically! It’s raining outside, when it should at least be SNOWING, I didn’t have any coffee left this morning somehow, I woke up late, I haven’t even taken a shower yet. Basically the worst day anyone has ever had. What else do you want to know about my day so far? Please leave any questions you have about anything that occurred during my day in the comments and I will do my best to get back to all of them, but I can’t promise anything. What I’m trying to say though is that I could really use a bunch of great ANIMAL VIDEOS to watch, to ease the pain of what has been the least pleasant day ever recorded in history, for anyone! (It hasn’t been bad at all.) (I know I am exaggerating and you know that I’m doing that for comedic effect, to point out how it actually hasn’t been that bad, but I do feel like I should also say that it has obviously been fine and I know that.) (Just kidding, I REALLY WANTED SOME COFFEE THIS MORNING!) I hope your day hasn’t been quite as bad as mine has, but even if it hasn’t I think a little animal video pick-me-up is something we could all enjoy! Let’s get to it!

4. Skyping Dogs

2. Dog Teaches Puppy How To Walk Down Stairs

1. Sloth Attack

SLOTH ATTACK! SLOTH ATTACK! SLOTH ATTACK! SLOTH ATTACK! I am not someone who is generally as crazy about sloths as the rest of the Internet, but I DO know a good sloth attack video when I see one, and BOY DO I SEE ONE! The dog teaching the puppy how to walk down the stairs is classic adorable, as is the monkey helping the other monkey and then hugging him. GIMME A BREAK, MONKEYS! I love you! Gabe said his favorite part about the skyping dogs video is the guy in the background who is acting like the whole thing isn’t annoying the shit out of him, and I have to agree. My other favorite part about it is how those dogs would definitely just bark at anything barking at them and it would be unbearable if it weren’t for an Internet video. And, finally, we have Toaster Scares Kitten ending the top five. BOO! CONGRATULATIONS! TO US!

  1. Man, I was really pulling for Teddy the corn-loving porcupine this week:

  2. Kelly, the dog helping the puppy video literally killed me. My question for you is: will you find it difficult to live with this on your conscience? or have you always secretly wanted to kill me, thereby making your day better?


  3. Oh man, I am having a medium bad day, and this perfect Petting Zoo was just the little pick-me-up I needed. Best one in recent memory! Bravo to Kelly and to all the cute animals!

  4. Also – man, kitty, that wasn’t even the scary part! Wait till you see what the toast is trying to tell you.

  5. These are all wonderful but the thing this week that absolutely killed me was tiny panda paw:

    If they had video of this guy, I would actually squee myself to death.

  6. Ugh, you know that carpet is all sticky with orange now.

  7. I love the dog teaching the puppy. Love it. Also, I want to know where this magician lives because I want him to make a ginger kitten appear on my sofa from out of nowhere.
    As for the baby panda, I felt so bad for him because his momma kept pushing him aside in order to eat her bamboo lunchables. Granted, I love food more than I love most people, but I would make a panda exception for my hypothetical panda baby.

  8. Well I have a headache that won’t quit and I was supposed to post something for a class and it didn’t work and I posted it like 3 times and now I can’t erase any of the posts and I look like an idiot so I’m pretty sure my day is the worst. (I know it’s not). Is the guy in the background of the skype video playing some kind of jackpot game or something? I find those noises annoying. So I totally approve of the dogs annoying him.

    Great job on the animal vids! My day is so much better now!

  9. You guys, I’ve been in a department meeting up until about half an hour ago, and it’s just so nice to come back to my desk and find a video of a cat being scared by a toaster.

  10. I’m amazed I’m the first one to comment on the cat playing the shell game. One of my cats was sitting in my lap as I watched it and I immediately said to her, “You are waaaay too dumb to do that.”
    (In a very loving way, accompanied by ear scratching, of course.)

  11. You guys, my landlord called me yesterday to tell me that there is an overrun of pups at the no-kill shelter that he volunteers at and this is my chance to foster a rad pup!! I’m going to wait until I get back from my little vacation, but puppy teaching puppy could very well be my reality!

    Also, how great is it to have a landlord that is encouraging you to bring a puppy into your home??

  12. ok can someone please tell me WHAT is that game the puppy is playing with the orange? my dog will do that with his toys/bones too. like he’s fencing with them, but also kinda afraid of them? how would I even google such a question?

  13. “Please adopt instead of purchase” is the correct lesson to be taking away from this weeks Petting Zoo.

  14. Well geez, I could rock the shit out of a shell game if it were a BELL under there too.


  15. Man, would you look at the determined expression on the sloth? That is a classic surviving-cousion-of-Tuco-Salamanca-sees-Walt-crawls-towards-him-from-hospital-bed glare.
