We don't know what the new year will have in store for us, but one thing we can guarantee is that animals will always be there for us to make us smile, laugh, and feel heartwarming joy.

Joyful Dogs Frolicking In Autumn Leaves

Oh boi, oh boi! These are some serious joyful expressions! You remember that feeling you used to get at the start of Autumn, and you come across a specially crunchy-looking leaf that you just need to step on? Maybe that's how dogs feel but with all leaves!

Ah, Autumn. Don't fight us on this but Autumn might be the best season of all. Hear me out on this, first:

1. It finally gets cooler but not too cold

2. Halloween

3. Cozy sweaters, warm drinks, overall sense of happiness

4. HALLOWEEN

Oh, and if you live in an area where the leaves change colors, that would be on the list too. But we don't, so it's not up there. 

We hope seeing these joyful dogs frolicking in the leaves gets you pumped up that Autumn is nearly here! Get excited people, these dogs sure are!

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Monty Happiness

"You are perfect just the way you are!"

That is the tagline in Monty Happiness's Instagram bio and it fully describes him. Perfect.

Monty Boy was adopted on August 30th, 2013, at the age of three by Mikala Klein. Monty's previous owner had too many cats and forced to place them for adoption, one of those cats was Monty. According to Mikala's blog, MontyMolly, "The first time we met Monty, there were no doubts in our minds that he was going to come live with us. His special appearance makes him look so incredibly cute, but his personality, which he showed from the very beginning, is rare as a diamond!"

Monty even had a unique personality, being in a room full of cats who few acted out on aggression, Monty would remain calm and collected. 

And while caring for a cat with innate chromosome abnormalities hasn't been the easiest, Monty's owners take such great care of him and don't mind the extra work. 

Regardless of his appearance, Monty is just like any regular cat. Mikala's wish is for Monty to be an "ambassador for special needs animals that may not look perfect in everyone's eyes!" She also added, "We also want to raise attention to the fact that looking different doesn't mean you can't be fantastic. And we believe that our sweet little Monty Boy is a perfect example to just that and in every way is FANTASTIC!"

Read up on last week's star on Instagram, traveling cats; Daikichi and Fuku-Chan!

Pure Happiness: Animal Edition

Smiles. Smiles are the universal sign of happiness. 

Did you know that smiling is actually more contagious than the flu? And that studies have should that when you smile, a true smile, "it affects certain muscles that actually make you feel happy or joyful. You smile because you are happy and when certain muscles are hit, your brain sends even more happy signals or endorphins."

Smiling is the ultimate gift you can give yourself, and others will catch your smile, too. 

We hope the following smiling animals are contagious to you, too! Here's to a happy day!

Abundance Of Kitty Love (17 Pics)

There's something quite special about the bond between animals, and we can argue that the bond between cats is especially special. 

Simply because a cats affection isn't usually won over quickly. It takes time to earn their trust and their love but once you do -- you still can't count on that! It's an ongoing process, but in the end... the love you take is equal to the love you make.

Stop the presses. This might be the cutest thing you'll ever hear! 

We are absolutely melting at the sound of Jeddah's squeaks while being pet!

In this video shot by Mandi Griffith, a care with Sydney Wildlife, we are introduced to Jeddah, a juvenile bat. 

"This is Jeddah. He loves to be tickled, petted and scratched. Look at that blissful face. Jeddah is a Grey-Headed Flying-Fox. I usually clip my videos quite short when it's all one behaviour being shown, but this bliss went on and on and I just couldn't bring myself to deprive you of any of the lengthy joy. I particularly loved the yawny and sniffy bits about half way through. And I love the curl of the tongue as he yawns.

 This bat was not releasable due to injuries.  He is in care with a vaccinated and licensed bat carer. This bat is not a pet.  He was a baby hand raised for release, and became an education animal. He is used to being handled.  He actively solicits attention and cuddles. There have been suggestions that this bat is terrified and the squeaks are not cute. This bat is in bliss and is able to get away from the carer at any time. He is choosing to be stroked. He solicits attention."

Did you catch the bat smiling? If not, look closely!

Love is so powerful. 

These poor animals had been abandoned, neglected, and the moment someone stepped in to give them a second chance -- they absolutely flourished. It's the best kind of glow-up there is. 

If you have the chance to give an animal a second chance at life and love -- please take it.
