20 Elderly Pets Who May Be Old Enough “to Drive” but Still Shower Us With Love

As much as we don’t want our pets to get old, we can’t stop it — it’s the natural circle of life. But instead of feeling sad about their old age, we should be thankful for all the days we were lucky enough to spend with them. And even though they may be old and wrinkly, their love for us will never change.

Bright Side is all about celebrating the pets in our lives, and the following compilation of 20 photos will show you that pets are the best companions, regardless of their age.

1. “This is my old boy, Link. He’s 10 and still very much a puppy! And he sure loves smoochin’.”

3. “My cat turns 14 years old tomorrow and still joins me when I go hiking.”
