18 Animals With a Case of the Mondays

Monday is not an easy day for most of us, and the same holds true for animals. We get used to the stress-free times of the weekend — sleeping in, eating what we want, and leaving the office politics at home. Our animals get used to having us home to play with them, cuddle, pet, and constantly tell them how awesome they are.

Monday is the mark of the start of the hard week ahead, and the great weekend is now behind us. Often, that feeling of sadness can be described as having “a case of the Mondays.” It’s a real thing: having to enter the real world again with schedules, meetings, homework, and bedtimes. It’s not a human-only thing though, and our pets and other animals are not immune to this phenomenon either — they can get a bad case of the Mondays as well.
