20 Animals Who Found Their Bestie in a Human

70% of pet owners say they sometimes sleep with their pets and 65% buy Christmas gifts for them. This bond can be easily explained. Pets can reduce stress and lower blood pressure. But no matter what science tells us, animals can simply become our soulmates.

We at Bright Side also adore our little friends and would like to share some peaceful photos of bonding between people and animals.
