There’s just something about fat animals that charms us all. Perhaps it’s the jiggle of their extra flab as they saunter toward a human. Or maybe it’s their insatiable appetite, which has them chowing down like every meal is an all-you-can-eat buffet. For whatever reason, we love chubby pets, and Pang Fu the raccoon is the latest chunky critter to crawl into hearts.

Pang Fu is the thickest trash panda around, weighing in at about 33 pounds. That makes it almost twice the size of other raccoons and probably pretty difficult to pick up for a cuddle. Thankfully, there’s a whole Facebook page dedicated to the plump cutie that keeps us updated on all his latest shenanigans.

Like climbing down the stairs…

…and look, it’s nap time! All that nomming sure tires a raccoon out.

For the record, all of these videos are 100 times better if you watch them while playing Sean Paul’s “Get Busy” in the background.
