Zoboomafoo | Episode: Making Friends With Pets | Animals For Kids
Pets always need something: they rely on people to take care of them. Taking care of a pet is a lot of work, but it’s a lot of fun, too. So the gang has their hands full when the Animal Helpers drop their pets off to be looked after by Zoboo, Chris and Martin. The Junction is crawling with guinea pigs, hamsters, ducklings, cats, dogs, a calf, a hermit crab and ducks. Zoboo thinks that taking care of 12 pets will be a piece of cake, but he quickly realises that it’s a lot of responsibility for any little primate. Depending on the animal, pets need attention, the right food, brushing, and lots of exercise and play, and clean cages or litter boxes. But the best thing you can do for your pet is spend a lot of time with her and be her best friend. Jackie and the Animal Helpers release a racoon that they have raised back into the wild. They know that even though a racoon’s furry and cute, he’s no pet. Racoons live free and in the wild.
