Sloth Hugs Cat

Those claws are frightening. The sloth is very gentle though. Jason Mraz will probably take the video down soon, so hurry.

What's the deal here? It's like having a stalker with you.

Katie Cunningham said...

Hugs it?? It is scratching it behind the ears just like humans do! Amazing!!!

I'm torn between this is freaking me out...and this is absolutely adorable. I think the sloth has a crush on kitty.

Laura said...

I'm dying over this!! I think they are so cute, KristeN Bell would be inconsolable if she watched this video.

I love sloths.

How does someone have a sloth? Do you buy them at stores? This is darling!

Anna Nonymous said...

I have kind of a phobia about sloths actually. The long nails, the crazily slooowwww ssppppeeeeeddddddd theyyyyy moooooovvve...... but have gotten less freaked out by cute pics and videos of them, they do have cute faces. I also think it's not so much a nice friendly animal hug but more like your stalker being able to cling to you and tap your head and face with crazy long nails. The cat doesn't look happy. It looks freaked out and uncomfortable. I know, I'm a cat emotion expert. Kidding. This also goes to show that almost every species and person loves kitties.

That cat is living it. An cat I know would be halfway to the next county if he didn't like the sloth's attention

sylmarillion said...

The cat seems to like it :) smart sloth.

I really, really need a sloth. It's all that's missing in my life.

That's some serious *squee*

Scratch-a-heem! Awwww, sloth is a lover.

Sherry said...

Yes how does one come by a sloth? My friend saw one come down from a tree (in central America) for it's weekly poop. The guide said that was quite the treat as it's not common to see.

How does a sloth know to scratch behind the ears?

That song compliments the video perfectly.

Feeling violated after watching this

Lola said...

He's grooming the kitty.

That cat is the loungest kitteh ever...my cats would be like, "um...no."

(My guess is the kitty probably raised the sloth at a rescue center.)

skimpymist said...

I have slowly become a fan of sloths but this video is kind of creepy. The way the sloth moves It's head looks like It's obsessed with the cat and taking in every scent it can from the cat.

Lola said...

The only information I could find was that the sloth's mother was killed by hunters, that's why it's in captivity.

Renoblondee said...

Oh wow! I agree, it's cool but really stalker/creepy!
@Laura That was also my first thought. LOL

califblondy said...

Weekly? Wow, no wonder they move so slow.

kerri said...

Yeah, I'm not sure if I think that was creepy or cute...

lostathome said...

Rape sloth LOL

hollywood dime said...

poor kitty looks like he's being held hostage! LOL

Della said...

Yikes! Not a sloth fan here.

lunaire said...

Yeah, I'm a little freaked out and think it's kind of cute at the same time. Mainly, the large claws make me nervous. Nonetheless, as long as neither animals are harmed in any way and the sloth has a tree to climb, I'm alright with this.

Izzie said...

I can't decide if I'm on the aww, cute or freaky!! train either. My cat will let you pick him and scratch his ears and act like you're doing him a favor so escape is his number one priority (he's purring the whole time and butting his face into your hand for MORE) but the sloth is all Glenn Close "I'm not going to be ignored, kitteh!!"

Mooshki said...

Sloths are NOT meant to be pets! All of the cute sloth videos on the interwebs come from the sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica, where they are cared for by professionals and visiting volunteers.



Debra Keller said...

That's the first thing I thought of! How cute she looked when almost started hyperventilating when the sloth was coming to her birthday party.

I love watching videos of different species getting along. It gives hope to mankind.
