Our pets’ love is boundless and unconditional. When we spend time with them, we discover our best human qualities such as compassion, the ability to love and notice happy moments, and appreciate the present.

Bright Side is 100% sure that animals are the most precious gift the planet has given us, and these photos only prove we’re right.

“My boyfriend never had a dog before.”

“I had a bad day today. My cat did this when I sat down on the couch. She sat like this for a solid 10 minutes just looking at me.”

“This is Sandy. She’s almost 13 years old, and she’s been with me since the day she was born. We’ve been inseparable from day 1.”

“My dogs were separated for 2 years due to a divorce. My ex agreed today that I can keep my 9-year-old boy!”

“My dad dressed ’the dog he didn’t want’ in my childhood dress he kept for his first granddaughter.”

“My best friend is here for a visit. She’s pregnant, and my kitty is very interested in her baby bump. He likes to sit with his paws resting on it.”

“My 70-lb pitbull thinks she’s a lapdog.”

“Our newest rescue is afraid of men so my husband put a blanket down for her to choose when to approach. She laid by him and used his head as a pillow.”

I think this cat could feel a baby in the belly, he was interested in new life :)
Our cat is pretty cold about people who live in our house. I can tell by his look he thinks the owns everything there ?
No matter how big the dogs are, they will always think they are small "compact" lapdogs, but we don't mind it ?
