Meet Otchan. He’s a pig farmer who shares a beautiful relationship with his cuddly pink creatures – all 1,200 of them. Kagawa-based photographer Toshiteru Yamaji spent ten years documenting Otchan’s bond with his animals. The caring and loving farmer serenades his pigs with a guitar, takes them to the beach, cuddles with them, or simply spends time with them – a far cry from the often abusive and inhumane conditions experienced by pigs in U.S. mass-production farms.
Grace Chon, an LA-based animal, lifestyle and celebrity photographer, had the brilliant idea of using her expertise to create an adorable series of images of her 10-month-old son Jasper and Zoey, their 7-tear-old rescue dog. In these cute photos, little Jasper and his sidekick Zoey pose for mom’s photos in matching hats and outfits. The only thing potentially more heartwarming than the photos themselves is the journey that Zoey had to take to be in those photos.
U.K.-based photographer Will Burrard-Lucas became a convenient makeshift lookout post for meerkats during his photo shoot in the Makgadikgadi region of Botswana, Africa. He spent six days capturing the life of this charming meerkat family when the babies started to get more and more curious and fascinated with Burrard-Lucas’s camera.

Sporting the iconic mask and shearling coat, Banecat seeks to eliminate his owner’s control over him by terrible acts of vengeance – of the sort that regular cats seem to engage in every day anyway.
Musicians and fans of the metal music community often get a bad rap because of their dark, gruff and tattooed looks. The adorable set of photos published in Metal Cats by Alexandra Crockett sets out to change all that by getting accomplished metal musicians to pose with their feline friends and show off their softer sides.
This adorable pooch is Duncan Lou Who, a brave boxer dog who lost his two hind legs to a birth deformity. What makes him so inspiring is that fact that he doesn’t let his disability get him down. This video, uploaded by Washington-based Panda Paws Rescue, shows Duncan on his first day at the beach. He keeps up both with the other dogs and with his human friends just fine.

We love to project human actions or thoughts onto animals, and it can be done with almost any animal – even bears. We found 33 pictures of very expressive bears that look like they could be thinking or doing some of the things that we do every day.
These 30 animals that look like they’re smiling are bound to warm even the stone-cold jaded hearts among us. Not so fast, however – the scientific jury is still out on whether or not animals can/do actually smile.
