Despite polls showing most Americans are in favor of spending cuts in general, it's hard to get people to pay attention to the details of the looming sequester. BuzzFeed's McKay Coppins examined why sequestration is so bad for traffic, asking editors from the Atlantic Wire, the Daily Caller and even The Huffington Post how to get people interested.

The Atlantic Wire tried to rename the issue, calling it the "spendocalypse." Gawker took a more visual approach, presenting a sequester explainer featuring Ryan Gosling and Kate Upton.

The Washington Post's Wonkblog had a different take on the subject, presenting 21 animals who "have strong feelings on the sequester" and noting that the National Zoo would take a hit if sequestration goes into effect.

While the sequester would have real consequences, it doesn't mean that animals need to have feelings about it.

The animals in the slideshow below are just fun to look at. For actual news on the sequester, click here.
