Bright Siders Share 25 Photos of Their Pets Who Make Every Day Into a Warm Memory

Psychologists believe that people with pets have “greater self-esteem, are more physically fit, and tend to be less lonely” compared to those without. More importantly, however, is that animals are the best at cheering us up and making our lives that much brighter.

Our Bright Side readers generously shared photos of their furry buddies that always put a smile on their face, and we invite you to share their love.
