22 Animals Who Got Older but Chose Not to Grow Up

There’s a famous saying that goes, “Getting old is mandatory, but growing up is optional.” And it looks like some of our pets got wind of this too. So they decided to behave the same way as when they were still cute little furballs — from squeezing themselves into spaces they can’t fit anymore to holding on to their favorite toys.
