#302 | Animal cam
I miss kittens. They're endlessly entertaining and pretty self-reliant for the most part. All you have to do is throw them some crumpled-up paper or leave a cat toy around and just watch them bounce around and indulge in their hilarious little kitten antics. It's no secret that cat and kitten videos are a large, large part of the internet, and it absolutely makes sense.
Today, I've got something better for you: a kitten live cam. This particular live cam is set up in a private room at the Kitten Rescue Sanctuary in Los Angeles, where you can watch the shelter's rescue kittens eat, sleep, run around, play and grow up - ad infinitum.

The cameras are set up by Explore.org (remember them?), and they showcase three portions of the property: the Kitten Nursery, the main camera room (also known as the Romper Room), where they house one litter or family at a time, and their larger Adoption Center, which is open to the public.
If you're not a cat person, or you're looking to explore the great outdoors from your computer screen, Explore.org has many more live cams you can watch! I'm currently watching this puffin cam from Seal Island near Maine, where wild puffins congregate.
There are streams from wildlife sanctuaries, like this one from Tembe Elephant Park in South Africa, bear cams, where you can keep an eye on brown bears feeding in Alaska, and even underwater cameras from oceans around the world.
If you just want a soothing, uneventful vista to look at (or listen to), the site also has a collection of Zen Cams, a collection of nature-based live cams overlooking sunsets, calm forests, and sometimes even the northern lights. So the next time you want an update on some rescue kittens, polar bears, or the weather at a random place on the other side of the globe, you know where to go to find it.
