This month’s collection is dedicated to our animals – our faithful and furry friends. They are our companions, our cheerful playmates, and our little helpers.

We understand, comfort, and protect each other; and there’s no doubt that just watching our pets can bring great joy. In this collection you’ll find videos of us and our animals; from the common to the unique and exotic, or even bizarre. Have fun with our selection of cute cats and adorable dogs, cheeky cheetahs and merry monkeys!

See dogs being prepared for the dog show, a crazy Soviet experiment involving a feline and a raptor, new springtime arrivals at Copenhagen Zoo, rescue dogs training in the Alps, a Chimpanzee tea party and lots of advice for pet owners, from health and acupuncture to feeding and grooming!
