As I’ve noted previously, I enjoy squirrel videos, though not as much as my squirrel-crazy friend Rob Hedden. In the last squirrel video I posted, it showed the great loyalty that squirrels seem to have when they get rescued – and here’s another in that vein. From the fine folks at the Dodo, a squirrel keeps coming back to its rescue mom.
The adventures of Kataro and Hana continue. It’s been much, much too long since I’ve had a video about the wonderful and, odd Kotaro and Hana, a couple of rambunctious Asian small-clawed otters. And this seems a good way to not only correct that oversight and refresh everyone’s memories on the two of them. It’s a 10-minute recap of sorts of the first four years of videos in honor of their one-millionth subscriber. It’s not the funniest of their videos, but it does a good job getting you up to speed.
By the way, Asian small-clawed otters are endangered, and require a permit to keep at home in order to meet certain conditions. I have to believe this owner has the permits, from the environment they show, the attention and clearly loving care given – and for how public their videos are.
From the fine folks at The Dodo, this is a wonderful story about how it took a year for a woman to get a feral dog inside the family’s house and how things built from there.
Some of my favorite Adorable Animal Videos are those with squirrels – an appreciation supported and exceeded (to a great degree) by my friend Rob Heddon who revels in them, and I suspect might create a tabernacle at his home for the creatures if his common-sense wife allowed it. Or if she went out of town long enough for him to do a home project before she got back. In this video from GeoBeats, a woman saves a squirrel’s life. And now he refuses to leave her home. (Oddly, this is much the same way I look at Rob and his wife...) --
From the fine folks at The Dodo, this is a montage video that they call, “Animals make the world magic.” It's done in a style that comes off a bit like a fantasy movie trailer for Disney, and dances a fine line between being saccharine hokey and spectacular. But because there are too many spectacular moments in it, for my taste in lands on the side of spectacular.
From the fine folks at The Dodo, this is a pretty unexpected one. And “pretty unexpected” is an understatement. It’s a wild squirrel who just adores a family’s dog, and comes to visit…almost every day for five years. And there's even a fun, little twist tossed in here, as a bonus.
