What do you do when you’re feeling a little low and need a pick-me-up stat? Watch videos of adorable baby animals doing cute things, of course!
The Cincinnati Zoo recently posted a video to its Facebook page of its baby hippo, Fiona, taking a shower, and it’s just about the cutest thing you’ve ever seen. Check it out below:
I don’t know what the caretakers’ secrets are for getting her to relax and enjoy her shower in peace (aside from the fact that she’s a hippo who, by nature, enjoys water), but I’d like to borrow a few of their tricks for my own kids. If bathtime were this easy and peaceful around our house, I’d actually look forward to it!
Fiona, who was born six weeks premature in January, has been making great strides since her entry into the world.
Primarily cared for by human surrogates since her birth, Fiona has been hard at work, learning to walk and navigate her way through the water. Although she’s not quite ready to join her parents, Henri and BiBi, outside, she’s getting there and will be by their side as soon as she’s safely able to.
Keep up the hard work, Fiona, and thanks for the smiles!
