Adorable Panda Cubs Derail Bath Time

April 2nd, 2020

When most people come home from work and talk about their day – typically their stories aren’t filled with adorable moments. Well, unless your job is taking care of baby pandas at the zoo, of course!

There are videos all over the internet of giant pandas and their keepers that make viewers wish they could swap jobs. Please, even just one shift? But since that’s probably not going to happen, at least we can enjoy all the cuteness from our computer screens. Get ready for a good dose of it below.

The man in the video works as a panda keeper over in China. One of his tasks for the day is to bathe the sweet little cubs with a washcloth (no, seriously).

He walks into the enclosure with a bowl of water and is met by a group of babies. Alrighty, kids – you know the drill!

Using the cloth, he begins cleaning one of the cub’s face while the others surround him.

It’s probably not the first time the keeper’s been given the chore, but it doesn’t keep him from smiling a tiny bit. A YouTube viewer commented:

“Keeper must be one of the most satisfied employees on the planet …❤️”

The cuteness meter keeps rising.

While the man focuses on bathing the cub, its buddies get restless. Perhaps they just want some love and attention too! There’s one, in particular, that seems really interested in the caretaker – and begins climbing his back.

Another viewer pointed out:

“Instead of the keeper showering the pandas, the pandas are showering him with their love :)”

The caretaker stays crouched and tries his best to wash up the cub, all while being treated like a jungle gym and cuddled. Awww!

If this guy isn’t a parent, he’s at least been exposed to some of the joys of having little ones.

He refuses to give up.

In the video, the guy cleans the squirmy cub from head to toe the best he can. It’s the most precious scene – as he looks like he’s being “attacked” by a bunch of furry toddlers. How he manages to not start giving them all big bear hugs is beyond me.

A little help here?

There’s a moment where he looks out into the enclosure almost as if he’s seeking some assistance. But can you blame the guy? So many panda babies that just want to play, and just one cloth. This might take a while…

Someone else wrote:

“I believe he is washing only one panda again and again thinking he washed all of them 😂😂🤣😂😂”

Giant pandas are native to China, and according to Pandas International, it’s estimated by scientists that there are 1,864 in the wild. About 600 live in captivity in wildlife parks, zoos, and panda facilities.

While many people dream of being a panda caretaker, one viewer left the following hilarious comment to let us know it might not be an easy job to get. They wrote:

“To all those wishing they had the job of the keeper, the screening process is extremely rigorous. They test you to know if you can resist cuteness to push through your tasks and complete them on time. I heard they put you in a room full of fluffy kittens and is then asked not to touch any of them for 10 whole minutes. I certainly would fail miserably.”
