Let's face it: we all need a good hug now and then. And who better to lay on the snugs than a fuzzy friend?
So we've rounded up our favorite pics of animal hug action, and believe us, we've got it all: panda-on-panda, dog-on-cat, monkey-on-bird.
Get ready for your day to be brightened, y'all.
We think they've found their new babysitter.
Baby Monkey-Bird Hug
"Are you my mother?"
She actually sat in some peanut butter earlier and the horse just found it.
See? They're not so ferocious.
Bear (Dog) Hug
When you're this small, you don't really have a say in this one.
Camouflage Cat Hug
Two cats, or one two-headed cat? You decide.
It's like their necks are hugging.
Shh.. It's okay.
It's going to be REALLY awkward when they wake up the next morning.
"Psst... You're the only one who poops around here more than I do."
They're not just man's best friend anymore.
"Welcome home, dear! How was work?"
Big Dog-Small Dog Hug
Something tells us this hug was unplanned.
Dancing Dog Hug
They're sharing a romantic waltz to "Who Let The Dogs Out?" (It's their song).
Puppy Weight Lifting Hug
Just four more reps...
He just thinks it's a cat that got huge ear implants.
"Gene, I haven't seen you in years!"
Uhh... What's going on here?
Big Dog-Little Cat Hug
They've got one thing in common: the ability to chill.
Siamese Cat Hug
Don't ask them about the song, they get that all the time.
"I won't look you in the eye, but I will hug the @#!% out of you."
"What Do You Want?" Hug
Excuse us, we're trying to snuggle over here.
If you count the tree it's really a triple hug.
Smothered Cat Hug
"Tom... Tom... I can't breathe. Tom?"
They even copy each other's facial expressions.
No one taught them about spooning yet.
Big Dog-Little Girl Hug
When you're that big, all you have to do is stand there and be loved.
Wait until someone turns the water on.
