Huskies are known to be the biggest, goofiest fluffballs. They seems to be aware of how huge they are, and because they love their humans so much, they make sure to be gentle and careful with them. Of course, they can't help but be overprotective sometimes, exactly because they love their humans that much, and trying to nap with them can prove to be the most wholesome and entertaining challenge. 

It's worth every second though, of course, because as much as our dogs love us, we love them about a million times more. You know, sometimes being suffocated by fur is totally worth it for the cuddle time.

Heartwarming Stories Of Cats Showing Affection (Facebook Comments)

This post is for the people in the crowd who truly believe that cats are not affectionate. We, cat owners, know that they are wrong of course, but the stereotype prevails. It's true that cats show love differently than humans and differently than dogs, but they still show it. You just need to know what you're looking for. 

Sometimes, a cat will show you love by blinking slowly while looking into your eyes, other times, they'll do it by showing you their bootie. And sometimes, it's a lot more straightforward than that - when they come to you, asking for physical affection in the form of cuddles. And our amazing Facebook users shared stories of just that which were so adorable we had to share them with you too.

Tumblr Thread: Cat That Adores Cuddles

We don't know if you've heard, but there is this rumor about cats not liking cuddles and not being affectionate. We know, how ridiculous is that. Clearly, anyone who knows anything at all about cats knows that if you have earned their love and affection, they will give it back to you tenfold and more. 


Cats are so affectionate. You just have to allow them to be affectionate with you on their own terms. It may take some time for it to happen, but eventually, if you are nice and respectful enough, it will. And maybe your cat will end up as cuddly and loving as this one.

Cats and cows, what do the two have in common? They're both animals. They both can sit suspiciously like humans.... and that's pretty much it. This is so unbelievably precious! A cow and cat with the same coat pattern (a pretty common coat pattern for a cow), seem to have a really strong and beautiful bond! They must've just taken one look at each other and figured they were family!

To be quite honest, we don't really know what's happening in this video, but the beautiful footage of a cat and cow being so affectionate and together 24/7 is so calming and heartwarming at the same time. It's one of those videos that doesn't even need context, it's just a joy to watch. 

We hope this video brings you the same joy it brought us. Have a wonderful rest of the day!

Photos Capturing How Strongly Cats Love Their Humans

For all those out there who think cats are cold, you're about to be proven wrong. Cats love their humans incredibly hard. It just takes a bit longer with some of them to build the trust necessary for that kind of strong love. But once you get there, once that bond is in place, no love will be stronger than your cat's love for you. 

Cuddles, kisses, rubbing up against your legs, mashing their forehead against yours, you'll get it all. You just have to earn it, prove to them that you're worthy of their love. Learn to give them space when they need it and the exact places that they don't like to be touched. It might take some time, but it will be worth it.

Redditors Share Wholesome Stories Of Aloof Cats Finally Choosing Them

Earning a cat's affection is normally not easy. They are naturally suspicious creatures, especially those of them who may not have come from the best of circumstances, so for them to show their humans trust and love is not an easy task. Some cats will take a few days to get used to their new environment and people and will grow to trust you quickly. Others might take years. 

A post on Reddit went viral of someone sharing the absolute unparalleled joy they felt when their cat finally chose to rest on them for the first time in 10 whole years. Goodness, was the wait for it. Other users chimed in, sharing their own stories of their cats finally, finally, choosing them, and we found each one of them incredibly heartwarming.

Posts Capturing Animals' Love For Each Other

There is nothing more wholesome than animal showing love. There's never any agenda behind it, never any goal, nothing. Animals loving humans or animals loving each other is the purest thing in the world. 

Their love is earned in ways different than those of humans, and when you manage to get it, it is the best feeling in the world. And it is just as beautiful when animals accept each other: when your cat totally falls in love with the new kitten you bring home, when two lions give each other some cuddles, or when two different animals of entirely different species decide that being friends is much more fun than fighting.

Love is in the air, and it is all around us, so we're sharing some of it with you,

Overly Affectionate Cat Doesn't Understand Personal Space (Viral Thread)

Whoever started the rumor that cats are not affectionate clearly has never owned a cat. Cats are very affectionate - they just choose their preferred times for being affectionate, and they're picky with who they love, just like we are. It's part of what makes us love them so much. When a cat is affectionate with you, you've earned it, and for that, it feels so much better. 

This cat who went viral on imgur is one who is so affectionate, his owner ItsMoni is even calling him overly affectionate with no perception of personal space. And the internet, as have we, has fallen in love with this cat. Because it's almost as wholesome and heartwarming to watch a cat love its owner as it is to be loved by one yourself.

Check out this week's animation of Earnie's diary, where he slowly but surely learns to trust his new family. And prepare the happy crying tissues, because this is something that every cat owner and lover out there will relate to: the process all the way from the hiss, to the first touch, to them scratching you out because they can't stop kneading you. It's love, guys.

People who have no pets seem to truly have no idea what they're missing. The love and joy that an animal brings into a household, the brightness and pure positivity. And it's important to remember that, of course, you're not the only one who's made happy by their presence, but that they're also made happy by yours. 

There is nothing more gratifying in the world when you have a pet than seeing that pet love you back. Whether you see in the way they snuggle with you or in the way they just chill next to you, when animals love, they love hard. And it is the most beautiful thing in the world. 

So, if you know anyone who's considering adopting, show them these pictures, and their mind will hopefully be set on "yes".

Big Bad Wolves Showing Each Other Some Love

Wolves may normally be depicted as scary, snarling, evil creatures - the big bad wolves, right? - but they're also known as some of the most affectionate, cutest animals out there. They're always running in packs, they howl if they're separated from their pack, sometimes as a signal, sometimes just to show some love, and some of them even mate for life. 

These terrifying creatures really know how to love each other, and the do it in the sweetest ways possible, nuzzling each other, randomly placing their heads on each other. A little like doggies. They even wag their tails when they're happy. And since these wolves are happy and in love, and we love them, we've decided to let some of this love envelop us in these stressful days, since we all need a little wholesome love right about now
