baby panda gets shots
Almost Eight Weeks Old!

You mean this baby panda video existed on the Internet for a full 24 hours before I saw it on HyperVocal? You mean no one else noticed that the almost-eight-week-old panda at the National Zoo was squealing adorably as it got some shots?  You mean no one thought to call, email, tweet, Facebook message, Instagram, Vine or skywrite write to me immediately?  Who are you people?!

15 Reasons Why Baby Animal Photos Are Better Than Real Babies

The photos released of a gaggle of painfully adorable baby pandas in China this week has left me a little more obsessed than usual with all things baby and furry. In photo form, baby animals are pretty much the best thing in the world — all that cuteness with no caretaking required. I love real babies and all, but I’d choose pictures of puppies and tiger cubs instead any day of the week. So, inspired by Jessica’s post this week about how Internet-famous cats are much better than real life cats, are 14 reasons why baby animal photos are better than real babies.  Keep reading »

Here’s A First Peek At The D.C. Zoo’s New Baby Panda!

Baby Panda! Baby Panda! Baby Panda!

Not one of my friends alerted me to this (days-old) video of the National Zoo’s new baby panda with her mom, Mei Xiang. I had to find it myself on my daily “new baby panda video” rounds. Thanks for nothing, everyone. None of you are invited on my own personal panda pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. when he/she/it reaches peak puffball. None, I say.  [DCist]

Awwww!

I don’t know what kind of week you’ve had, but I do know that you’ll feel a million times better than you do at right this moment if you watch a baby panda at the Taipei Zoo suck its thumb. Mommy panda Yuan Yuan gave birth to the little tyke, who doesn’t have a name yet, back in July. The zoo’s YouTube page is keeping us up-to-date with squee-dorable panda moments. And it’s only getting fuzzier from here on out! [Laughing Squid]

how to do panda nail art
Squee!

Longtime readers of The Frisky will know two things for certain: one, it used to be a lot more fun around here when our girl Simcha Whitehill worked with us, and two, I’m just a teeny bit obsessed with pandas. Well, today’s my lucky day! Here’s Simcha, aka nail art expert Miss Pop, in a video for the blog Beauty High teaching us how super-easy it is to do panda nail art. All you need is black and white polish and a couple of different sized pins! Aren’t they darling? I’ve got to make an appointment with Miss Pop and rock those panda nails myself. [Beauty High]

Squee!

You don’t think there would be a baby panda video that I would keep to myself, do you? Wash your mouth out with bamboo! This here is a mama panda wrestling with her baby panda cub — quite adorably, if I do say so myself. At least I think they are playing. That little guy is really getting tossed around.

Can We Please Just Let Dogs Be Dogs?

Jessica sent me a link to an article about a trend in China where people dye their dog’s fur to look like another animal, probably thinking I would find it cute. But I don’t and let me tell you why. Okay, sure, I’ll start off by acknowledging that there is obviously something cute about a dog dyed to look like a panda or a tiger. But frankly, this is low hanging cute fruit. Sort of no duh, you know? So with the cuteness, lazy and absurd as it may be, acknowledged, I am here to speak up as an advocate for dogs everywhere: LET PUPS BE PUPS. Your dog is adorable as he or she is naturally and though I am not a dog psychologist, I can only assume physically altering your pooch’s appearance so he or she looks like an entirely different breed of animal is probably pretty bad for the pet-esteem. Do you really want your dog to think, “Mommy wishes I was a Bengal tiger” or “If only I was a real panda, Daddy would love me more”? Of course you don’t. So let’s make a pact on behalf of our pets to not partake in this trend. Deal? And thanks for hearing me out. [Global Post]

Moooo-om! Get Up And Play!

This week, the chattering classes have been embroiled in a debate about New York magazine’s cover story “The Retro Wife,” which explored feminists who choose to be stay-at-home-moms. I weighed in, as did Jezebel with their subtle headline “‘The Feminist Housewife’ Is Such Bullshit.’” It’s controversial!  But, really, who cares what a couple of bloggers think? We’re just people who don’t know any more than anybody else. That’s why I take all my complicated social issues to one place. That’s right, pandas. And I think we can all agree that this stay-at-home, er, lay-at-home mommy panda wishes she had never left the workforce. [YouTube]

My big sister Allison egregiously aids and abets my panda obsession. She is the one responsible for almost all my panda crap, most of which sits on the bookshelf above my desk at work: panda mug, panda PEZ dispenser, panda eraser, twin panda Christmas ornaments, a panda figurine, and a panda T-shirt. Now, I have a new panda knickknack I covet: a micro crochet mohair panda. You read that right! This made-to-order panda cutie measures in at 0.8 inches, making him smaller than the pad of your finger. What the shit do I need a micro crochet mohair panda for? Especially one retailing for a cool $78? Who the fuck cares! Allison, my birthday is coming up. [Etsy]

How do I get this job?!?!  There appears to be a whole field of neuroscience focused on studying why certain animals are cute (aka Cute Studies) and, as NPR helpfully recapped for my pleasure, one of the animals they have explored is baby pandas.
