Heavy Petting

December 10, 2012 9:00 am

It’s the holidays. Which means it’s time to party like an animal.

Or rather, with an animal, thanks to Zoo to You.

Basically, Zoo to You is the outfit that brings exotic animals to Jay Leno’s studio.

And for you, they’ll do exactly what their title suggests — i.e., make your parties, ahem, wild, by ferrying everything from Indochinese tigers to black bears to your home.

Just like they did with one Hollywood agent, who hosted a troop of kangaroos in his house.

That said, the animals don’t perform (stupid human tricks are more rewarding anyway), and they’re supervised by trainers who keep them calm

And most have been rescued from injuries or adverse situations. Like Spike the alligator, who was rescued by the LAPD during a raid on a crack house.

Spike was the guard.

Petting animals has been proven to increase endorphins, which feels good. And, Zoo to You is a 501(c)(3) organization — so you can write your party off.

Which feels even better.
