Come On Get Happy: 25 Super, Smiling Animals

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.

Click through these adorable smiling animals that are bound to brighten your day:
