Congratulations to Erie Zoo, Pennsylvania, for welcoming the birth of two critically endangered red panda cubs!
On August 6th, 2020, Erie Zoo announced that their two adult pandas, Pumori and Delilah, have welcomed their first litter! One male cub and one female cub had been born. Currently in the care of animal specialists after staff members noticed the cubs were “failing to gain weight naturally.”
In the video, we see the zoo’s veterinarian P.J. Polumbo nursing the four-week-old cubs.
“They are doing extremely well,” the spokesperson said during the cubs’ unveiling on Facebook. “They did just open their eyes within the last week.”
We know that there is no “real” cure for the blues or depression, but cats do a pretty good job of letting happiness creep in. It’s difficult not to smile and feel warm inside when you see, pet, play, or even nap with a cat.
