The zoomies are a wonderful thing. Nothing quite makes your heart grow three sizes a-la-Grinch like a dog with a serious case of the zoomies. Or at least, that’s what I thought until I stumbled across this video of a WOMBAT doing the zoomies.
The glorious two-minute video was shared on Facebook by the Wombat Awareness Organisation last week and has since gone viral. I know what you’re thinking, yes, you should follow their Facebook page for daily wombat cuteness.
The video, captioned “I really don’t know who gets more excited”, has been viewed over 129,000 times since being published a week ago, and I swear only like 2,000 of those are from me.
Unsurprisingly, the zoomy wombat has become quite the internet celebrity, with 1,700 shares, 16,000 likes and nearly 1000 comments on the original post.
Funnily enough, this isn’t even the first time Wombat Awareness Organisation have caught the zoomies on camera. It was just a few months ago that we shared a completely different video of a zoomy boy. Don’t tell me we don’t spoil you with great content.
The Wombat Awareness Organisation is the only free-range wombat sanctuary in the world, which means that the poor little wombats that get hit by cars or injured get to live out their days or seek treatment and rehabilitation in this gorgeous zoomies paradise.
Honestly, the Wombat Awareness Organisation should set up some sort of Patreon system where they send daily zoomies videos in exchange for donations. Please, I’m begging you. Take all of my money. The wombats are more deserving.
If, like me, this video has given you copious amounts of joy and smiles, and maybe even a case of the human zoomies, you can donate to the Wombat Awareness Organisation here.
Wombats are honestly just God’s gift to us all. If you’re ever sad, there’s thousands of cute videos of wombats playing silly buggers online, and it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than therapy (I’m kidding, go to therapy too). Little wombies are the most underrated animal in Australia and that folks, is a hill I’m willing to die on.
P.S: Here at P.TV we love wombats, so if you’re in need of some more cute bebe wombat content, I’ve compiled a list of some of the best bits of content you’ll ever find.
