This week on THE ZOO you got an up-close look at the original grumpy cats, Pallas’s cats. We have two cats in the new exhibit at the Prospect Park Zoo, and as you saw on the show, we’re hoping to breed them. They aren’t common in U.S. zoos so if we’re successful it will be pivotal to their conservation!

Enjoy some bonus footage of the Pallas’s cats exploring their new exhibit. We even hand-picked a few gif-able moments for you to share on social media. Watch below and then make a plan to see them for yourself in Brooklyn.
