But you know what always lifts my mood? Cute animal pics! Like these ones here. They're keeping my stress levels pretty low right now.
I can't get over how happy this dog looks! It's like she knows that big cake is all for her. And any dog that makes it to 15 absolutely deserves all the doggy cake, anyway.
Not even dogs can help but want to be around a cuddly kitten all day. And to be honest, I'd probably just let them have their nap time, if only because it's so dang cute!
Those cats look like they're about ready to come storming out of that room, demanding food. In fact, I'm kind of surprised they haven't done that yet.
This cat may be grumpy, but I'm pretty happy right now. The only thing that sucks is that this is just a picture, because I totally want to reach out and touch all that floof right now.
I'll admit that it took me a minute to find the bird. But once I did, it made me smile.
I won't give its spot away, but I'll give you a hint: it's green.
That goat looks incredibly happy right now, which basically means that guy has to take it home now. Or, bring it back to wherever it came from, I guess.
Also: That belly.
Hugging a dog is probably one of the best things you can do to beat stress. Looking at pictures of dogs may not be the same, but it's still good enough!
This is actually so cute, I might tear up a little. I mean, just look at her! She wants to play with the rocking horse too! I hope her family rocks her on that things as much as possible.
Now there's a good girl who didn't give up! Obesity in animals is especially bad, because they literally rely on their people to stay healthy. This amount of dedication shows that her family really cared.
This squirrel is looking so polite, so I hope he gets more nuts. And sure, they may not be able to actually have this squirrel as a pet, but this is probably as close as it gets.
Looking at how excited this rat is to eat a noodle is making me feel really good. Most of us can only wish we can be as happy as this rat.
Plus, the flower of protection is way cuter. I hope this little guy doesn't have to wear it forever, but at least it's not a cone.
I guess there are worse things in the world than being too friendly. If this little pup isn't cut out for police dog training, maybe they'd make a better doggy actor.
It's hard to believe that some people will straight up keep dogs outside full time. Like... that shouldn't be allowed. Every single dog deserves at least three beds in a house to call their own.
"Had to bring them both food and water because he refused to leave its side day and night, very proud of him."
Okay, I might actually be tearing up now.
This poor fox probably thinks they've found a friend. This is honestly so cute, I can hardly handle it.
But somebody needs to get the fox a real friend ASAP.
Yeah, OP really didn't have any other option. Those two cats are companions for life, and they obviously couldn't live without each other. Which is honestly just so cute.
"Though it was adorable, and wanted to share."
Man, pets are honestly the best. Literally no one else will be as excited for you to come home as your pet. They're such amazing companions!
You know how they sometimes bring dogs to children's hospitals to cheer up the patients? I guess dogs like that kind of cheering up, too.
Dogs may not get things like "reading" and "studying," but they'll always be happy to spend time with us, no matter what we're doing.
