Experts are just starting to understand the relationship between children and animals. They can have a profound impact on kids’ social cognitive development. And seeing how patient and caring animals can be with their little owners shows there is something extra special in this connection.

We at Bright Side love both animals and children, so we’ve gathered the most tender pics that show how amazing the patience of animals toward kids can be.

1. “My 4-year-old likes to accessorize the dog.”

2. Building blocks are always better when dumped out on the cat’s tummy.

3. Nothing beats tea in a bonnet.

4. Unexpected rides in unexpected places can be a thing every once in a while.

5. And then there are the hiding strategies...

6. “I want the ball, but I’m not allowed to leave my bed.”

7. And then there’s taking rides together through the garden.
