24 Stirring Photos That Prove Animals Are Our Best Friends Ever
Articles that tell moving stories about animals and people get a lot of attention from our readers. We have been amazed by the number of responses, photos, kind words, and stories we get from them. So, here is a new compilation of stories about friendship made completely out of the stories from you, our dear readers.
The entire Bright Side team was moved by your kind and pure hearts. Unfortunately, it is impossible to fit all of your stories in here, but you should know that we read every single comment and we are amazed.
“This is Grunyasha. She is 10 years old. We found her when she was a puppy. And she is still scared of being alone. She howls when we are away.”
“This is Bucks. He followed our son home from school. He wasn’t scared of making it all the way to our house even though he was only about 2 months old. He’s been with us for 3 years now.”
“Last Christmas, I lost my most loyal friend. I will never forget him. We had a special relationship. He understood how I felt better than anyone. When I fly to different places, I think about him. I’m always on the lookout for a rainbow as a symbol that he’s still happy, wherever he is.”
“This is Nucki and Martina. When we found them they were barely alive. Now we love them and they love us!”
“This is Besya. We saw each other at a vet clinic and my son talked me into taking her. My husband didn’t want the cat but now we all love each other.”
“She passed away at the end of the year. I really miss her. She chose me a husband, she approved my apartment, let me have a dog, and once she made sure everything was okay, she passed away at the age of 18...”
“This is Susy, Mal, and Luna, we love them a lot and take them to different countries.”
“My husband found Luna as a puppy in the street. Mel, the lab, was thrown away by her owners and she waited for them for 2 years. The second lab, Susy, was owned by people who used her to produce new puppies.”
“He got run over by a car and had a serious injury. The owners tried to treat him but then decided to put him down. Some good people took him in and ordered a wheelchair for him. I have him now and he is 13 years old.”
“We found this bird without any feathers. When he was growing up, he loved to sit on our shoulder. 2 months later, he grew into a beautiful pigeon. We let him go, but he sometimes comes back to visit us.”
“This is Titai. She has been living with us for 2 years and it’s only recently that she has started to trust us. She doesn’t purr, she is not scared of water, and she walks in the forest and brings us trophies — mice!”
“This grey beauty is Avy. I took her in as a kitten and she has been with me for 3 years now.”
“This is Zosya. She is 13 years old, we got her as a kitten.”
“We took this gorgeous cat in as a kitten because he was in danger. He’s been with us since then.”
“He was thrown away in the forest not far from where I was swimming. We’ve been together ever since.”
“This is Bublick and Glasha. They both were found on the street and were hurt by people. Everyone recommended that we put them down, but we didn’t listen. Now, all that is behind us, we are happy together.”
“This lady came to our house really thin. And look at this beauty now.”
“This is Lana, but we call her Dobby. We got her from the animal shelter. We took her when she was 4 months old, right before the New Year. This was our present for ourselves.”
“This is Peach, he is 15 years old. We found him when he was 2-3 months old, his tail was broken, his ears were torn... We fixed him up. He is still sick from time to time, but he goes through his treatments with great patience.”
“The cat’s name is Vasya and the dog’s name is Luke. We got the cat as a kitten. Luke is an old guy, he doesn’t see very well and almost can’t hear anything, but he still tries to control the cat.”
“This is Tihon. We found him 4 years ago, he was definitely a house cat. I didn’t want to take him because I have asthma and I’m allergic to cats. But while I was trying to find a new owner, I got attached to him. So, he’s been with me since then.”
“This is my cat and he only has 3 paws. He has been with me for 2 years.”
“This good boy is Bronx. When he was 7 years old, someone got tired of him, and gave him to a shelter. We took him 2 days later, we love him, and we take him to the doctor. We love his beautiful voice (he howls when he wants attention).”
“This is my son Aramis. I found him when he was really small and I fed him from a bottle. When I was trying to find new owners for him, I realized that he was my dog.”
“This is Lucky. He was part of a group of newborn kittens that were thrown away. One of them survived and was found by my son. He brought him home and cared for him. He fell from the 4th floor and lost his front teeth. We can’t imagine our life without him. When someone asks me how many children I have, I always say 2 — my son and my cat.”
Bonus: A newly-born lamb snuggles up to a boy. This looks like the start of a new friendship.
