Facebook Comments Showering Cats And Dogs With Love (Mostly Cats)

Is there anything in this world better than your pet? Anything at all? We would argue that there isn't. Our pets - cats, dogs, parrots, even fish - are our little rays of sunshine, bringing joy, energy and calm into our households. Nothing makes us smile harder than they do, nothing worries us more than when they're hurt, and nothing warms our hearts faster than when they show us that they love us back.

So, today, we and our amazing Facebook community are going to shower our little sunshine pets with the love that they have earned. It's wholesomeness and love galore, mixed with some hilarity. Prepare yourself. 

Facebook comments showering cats and dogs with love thumbnail includes one Facebook comment 'Font - Kelly Driscoll I was once sitting in the front porch petting a feral cat that had adopted us, when a stray dog came down the street and started to come into the yard. That cat launched himself off the porch with a demonic growl and tore towards the dog. The dog thought better of his direction and took off. The cat trotted trotted back and resumed getting his pets. I was stunned. 17 Like · Reply M'

Wholesome Animal Stories And Incredible Pictures

Animals are incredible and will never not be incredible. Seriously, each and every animal is so unique and interesting in its own way, it's absolutely insane that we all share this Earth together yet are each so different. 

The world would be a much darker place if we didn't have animals in it to help light it up and bring us joy. Not only do they bring us joy but they completely fascinate us. We will never fully understand any animal and why they do all the things they do. Regardless, we will forever admire and worship them all. Because each and every one of them are incredible in their own way. 

Here are just a few incredible photos of a few animals:

Funny Tweets About Pets Confused By Human Things (Mostly Dogs)

Sometimes, we find ourselves wondering what our animals are thinking about things that are totally normal to us but must be incredibly strange to them. I mean, I'm pretty sure my dog is very confused about why I'm eating my food using strange utensils rather than shoving my face into it and throwing all my kibble around like is proper. And apparently I'm not the only one who's a bit confused. 

A tweet went viral about a dog being confused by elevators, and other tweets talking about adorable animal confusion by normal human things started flooding in, and it's so funny, we can't stop laughing. Animals are just so adorable when they're confused, and you're totally lying if you say you didn't deliberately try to confuse them with something funny at least once.

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.

These stories are insanely heartwarming but also somewhat silly at the same time. Because no matter how loving cats are, they are silly little furballs at heart.

Dads Falling In Love With Pets They Didn't Want

A tale as old as time... The first act: dads insisting on not getting a pet. The second: dads complaining about the pet the family got and acting like they can barely tolerate it. Act three: finding your dad cuddling your new cat/dog on the couch... still acting like they can only barely tolerate them. 

Really, they should stop pretending, we all see through them. No one can withstand the power of the cute.

r/dadswhodidnotwantpets on Reddit is the ultimate proof of that, considering how many people share their stories on it. It's wholesomeness galore, heartwarming stories and nothing else, and as someone with a dad just like one of those, I love these stories more than anything.
