If you’re like me, you love seeing cute cat videos and photos on the Internet. In fact, I enjoy watching the antics of any animal—horse, hedgehog, duck—did you see the momma duck who had somehow collected over 50 ducklings? And she had them all lined up in a row, too. Talk about super mom.
Here’s an interesting article explaining why so many of us are addicted to animal videos on the Internet. I don’t know about you, but when I go on facebook, I flip through political messages, advertisements, any sort of bashing posts or negativity. What am I looking for? Sweet messages and cute and interesting animal videos and pictures. Evidently I’m not alone. According to this article, first appearing in the New York Times, sweet animal videos are a small window of grace in a world full of negativity.
