Let’s face it: we can’t all wake up on the right side of the bed all the time. Being grumpy is rarely a choice, but circumstances will sometimes make our smile turn to a frown, and that can have quite an effect on our whole day. That’s why I love having a pet so much. My cat, Ariel, has seemingly magic powers: one look from her, one cuddle, or one purr in my direction will release the stress and just put me at ease. I then find myself smiling.
Pets and animals in genera, really know how to turn our frowns upside down, and as it turns out, they’re pretty good at breaking out a smile too. If you’re having a bad day or a slow morning, all you need to do is click through these photos and before the end of it, I bet you will already be feeling better.
Perfect on a Monday or Tuesday or when the week is feeling long and you’ve got a lot on your plate, it’s amazing what a little pick-me-up can do for your spirits and productivity. I swear animals are the answer to all our sads and their faces just prove that over and over.
