I’m Gonna Get This Orange Ball….

[….if it’s the last thing I do!!!]

(An oldie but a goody. A Red Panda trying to do a full-body Ninja Assassin slam on an unsuspecting Punkin. Purrfect for Halloween.)

Cred to Jamie W.



  1. I think that’s a mikan (a citrus fruit similar to a tangerine or clementine). Who knew citrus could be this fun? Are we sure he’s not on some red panda nip?

  2. Leetle tongue flick @ 0:18! 🙂

  3. My new rescued kitten has the very same moves!! presh!!

  4. That fur suit looks sooo warm! It’s like built-in sow pants. 🙂

    I wish I knew what he was thinking while doing a pumpkin ninja thingie.

  6. Near the end, it was all, “Wait a minute ,,, I’m fighting with myself???? Back to the orange thing!”

  7. Dawww that’s so sweet. Animals probably see me as a monster or something, since I want to cuddle them all – especially goes for my girlfriends cats. Poor cats 😀

  8. Sadly never seen red pandas in my local supermarket (re: bing-bongs at the end!)
    “Pumpkins now on special offer” ?
    “Clean up on aisle 3” ?

    Yeah, it’s so funny that they pounce to play. I mean, intellectually I know they’re omnivores, but I always think of them as eating only bamboo.

  10. Every bit as silly as a kitten.

  11. Too big to be a mikan, the fruit otherwise known as a Mandarin orange. I think it’s a small pumpkin.

  12. Maybe as it’s hard to tell the size of the red panda but I’ve seen bigger mikan in Japan, and this red panda frolics like a baby, I think he’s relatively small. Most pumpkin I’ve seen in Japan are kabocha, which is usually a green skin variety. I haven’t seen the orange pumpkins common here during the fall that much.

    I bet he’s thinking “Here I come, baby; I’m comin’ to GETCHA!”
