Cute Overload :D
Fluffy The Penguin (great name, or what) was having some balance issues, so they hauled him into the University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center for a tuneup. Here’s how it went.
From Matt D. at the U of M.
This story is full of peng-win! Thank you, friends of Fluffy.
I don’t usually like captive animals, but look at how awesome these peeps are! Taking care of the sick baby- Thank you!
Wonderful! I so glad Fluffy is going to do well. BTW, where can I get some of the Penguin health care? ;)
So thankful for caring professionals and modern diagnostics! Lucky lucky Fluffy, so happy for you!!!
Thank you good humans. <3
GREAT pun. Jealous!
Stories like this are just plain awesome! Please someone make sure that the University vets also receive our best wishes and love – they are just as awesome as the zookeepers :)
Penguins sound like donkeys???
Also: Seeing this next to the post above made me think, ‘Fluffy’ would also be a great name for a turtle.
There is a breed of penguin called the African Penguin, a.k.a. the Jackass Penguin. This is because they sound like donkeys…
Why, thank you, HunBun. Come to think of it, I have heard of Jackass Penguins. I guess I thought it was more of a comment on their personalities . . . .
I so wish I worked at this facility! I unfortunately cannot convince my hospital that we should also image animals (penguins especially!)
