As we all know, the most heartbreaking and upsetting part of the government shutdown is how the National Zoo’s online “Panda Cam” has been forced to go dark. Babies and mothers going without food and workers going without work and a paycheck sure, but no panda cam?! I AM JUST KIDDING. PLEASE STOP TALKING ABOUT THE PANDA CAM! (ALSO STOP TALKING ABOUT YOUR ABILITY TO GO TO NATIONAL PARKS PROBABLY?) Who needs the panda cam anyway when we have a billion videos of pandas on YouTube. In just this one Petting Zoo post we have not one but two panda videos! The House Republicans can take away the ability of some to feed their families, but they’ll never TAKE AWAY OUR ABILITY TO WATCH PANDA VIDEOS! Ahhh, let’s not talk about! We have ten wonderful, nonpartisan animal videos for everyone to enjoy. Let’s get to them before we’re too fired up!

  1. Ah, excellent showing by cats acting like dum-dums.

  2. First they came for NASA TV and I said nothing.
    Then they came for The IRS and I said nothing.
    Then they came for the Panda Cam,

  3. I personally would have put the mop cats at number two, but since Kelly refuses to negotiate I’m going to have to shut down Videogum until I get a CLEAN petting zoo.

    JKJKJK of course, great job on selecting these videos. They really helped lower my blood pressure for a few beautiful minutes.

  4. I find the use of the term “horsing around” in the video that is titled “Horse Interview” to be quite comical, as the term is being used to describe the actions of a horse.

  5. I have a pretty important announcement. Yesterday I met two tiny dwarf goats BEING WALKED ON LEASHES. It was without question the cutest thing that I have ever EVER seen. And my dog made friends with them. It was insane. Now I want tiny dwarf goats.

  6. I had no idea how gross the insides of horses’s mouths were!

  7. Excellent length on these videos. I’m a busy man and I need my cuteness quick!

  8. Been there dog mom. The babies always want to eat when you’re starving. And if you try to eat WHILE you’re feeding them, they give you the stink eye.

  9. Wow. I think I could watch Swiffer Cats all day. That was a pretty great pick-me-up, considering the mood in DC is so glum right now.

  10. All the videos were the perfect length. I love Swiffer Cats the most because I expected the video to be much longer and with cats leaping onto it at every corner of the house.

  11. Whoa #2 had a twist ending!!! Great job everyone! Perfect length, perfect animals, just perfect!

  12. i can’t believe how lightly you are all taking the loss of the panda cam. soon.
