It is hard not to smile when you see a cute animal. It seems like more businesses in Southwest Florida are becoming more pet friendly. I even saw an old fashioned carriage with two fluffy dogs instead of babies, at an indoor bar in Fort Myers over the weekend. That raised a few eyebrows. However, when dogs are taken to hospitals, nursing homes, schools and such, healthcare experts say it is beneficial to the patients. Many dogs, and cats too, have a way of calming nerves and anxiety. The internet is full of cute videos of animals doing funny things and this week I found some good ones. If you want a good laugh, check out these 5 adorable and hilarious animal videos to boost your mood for TikTok Tuesday.

Dogs and cats may be prominent on social media but they are certainly not the only animals doing funny things. In some cases, it’s the videographer who is doing the funny things with animals as stars. The audio is also key for many of them. You’ll see a couple of great examples when you scroll down. Click here for a video I made at a donkey sanctuary on the island of Bonaire a few years ago. The audio was trending at the time so I cold not resist using it.

If you don’t have a TikTok account, don’t worry. I’ve made it easy to view by taking these links from mine. Simply scroll down and hit play from this post. In addition, all of these videos are office and kid friendly. In fact, the kids will love these and likely want to watch again. Share with your friends who could also use a good laugh today or a pick-me-up today.

Enjoy these 5 adorable and hilarious animal videos to boost your mood.
