Sometimes we need a break from the news cycle. Here are ten cute animal videos (and a couple of funny ones) to brighten your day!
I think it’s safe to say we’ve all been bombarded with a lot of bad news these last couple of months. I know for me it often feels like a big, storm cloud is hanging over my head because every time I check into one of my social media accounts I come across negativity or sad news.
My favorite social platform to use is Twitter because I like to stay up-to-date on current events and what’s happening in our government. (You can follow me on Twitter here.)
But something else I enjoy doing on Twiter is finding positive content to lift my mood. Cute kid videos, funny jokes from my favorite comedians (Kev on Stage is hilarious!), and encouraging quotes are great reminders for me to find the joy in each day.
This morning I was checking in and a cute video of a panda holding her newborn cub popped up on my timeline. Shared by ABC News, the video was a short clip from The Ouwehands Zoo, a Dutch Zoo, and mama panda Wu Wen cradling her cub was just adorable!
It immediately made me think of how in 2.5 months I will be holding my newborn baby for the first time. (I’m getting teary-eyed now!)

Yesterday, Zhen found a cute bunny video set to instrumental music. She couldn’t stop laughing because she thought the bunny was moving its nose to the beat. I think she watched that video 50 times in a row!
If you love cute animal videos as much as we do, then here are nine more adorable videos you may love.
