15 Animals That Make Us Feel Better About Getting Older

There comes a time in everyone's life when the comfort of a couch trumps a wild night, naps replace happy hours, and the highlight of a weekend is binge-watching a new show on Netflix. Whether you're hitting your quarter life crisis or reaching an age you refuse to admit, we all have to grow up (a little bit) at some point -- and there's nothing wrong with that.

So what if that means the crazy days of your youth are now few and far between? These animals are right there with you, and, we must say, they're more than accepting of this new stage of their lives.
