It’s hard to say what it is about animals that we love the most – their cute or beautiful looks, their natural innocence or the emotional reactions that they elicit from us. But whatever the case may be, one of these 30 happy animal facts is bound to bring a smile to your face. A lot of these facts also underscore the similarities and emotional connections that people can share with animals, which raises a broader and more interesting questions – what is it about animals that we love so much?

Let It Rain Love: 19-Year-Old Photographer Takes Beautiful Shelter Dog Pictures To Help Find Them New HomesBy Dovilas • Mar 26th, 2014 • Category: Animals, Cute, Latest Posts, Photography
Jessica Trinh, the talented young pet photographer who we recently wrote about when her golden retriever Chuppy passed away, is back with a beautiful series of images of shelter dogs that will make your heart melt. The images in her “Let It Rain Love” project are all adorable and sweet, but there’s more to it than that. By taking beautiful portraits of shelter dogs, Trinh aims to give each of them a fighting chance at being adopted.
While we did write recently about furniture and home design for pets, we never had any idea that anyone would take it this far: an unidentified homeowner in California has spent $35,000 turning his home into a feline paradise. It’s not clear who this home is better for, the owner or the 18 cats he lives with. Spiral ramps, walkways, scratching posts, miniature stairways, crawlspaces and other awesome details designed specifically with his 18 fluffy roommates in mind.
Pets and people share a very special bond when they grow up together, which is why we’ve compiled a list of pictures of people and their pets growing up and sometimes growing old together. Because of their shorter lifespans, dogs, cats and other domestic animals tend to grow out of their juvenile forms relatively quickly. In a few months, that cute and doofy puppy that’s tripping all over himself will be galloping between your legs enthusiastically, and in a few months more he or she will be approaching their adult size.
When we furnish our apartments or homes, it’s easy to forget our animal companions. Getting furniture just for your cat or dog might be a bit extreme, but most of these pieces of animal furniture are useful for both people and their pets. Some of these pieces of animal furniture serve dual purposes. Others are probably more useful/fun for pets rather than people. However all will make your pets happier by making their home environment more dynamic.
Cats and dogs are cool enough on their own, but just in case you weren’t convinced about this verified fact, here are some famous people with their pets to convince you. Given how most of the pet owners on this list are larger-than-life celebrities, it’s nice to know that even they enjoyed the company of pets just like we do. Sure, maybe not all of us can afford an ocelot like Salvador Dali, but it’s nice to know that even he had a cat to scratch behind the ears from time to time.
Eight years ago 88-year-old Misao met a wonderful companion – an odd-eyed kitten that found his way to the shed. Grandmother and her odd-eyed feline friend have been doing everything together ever since. The woman still goes out into the fields every day, and Fukumaru follows her every step. These pictures portray their peaceful daily life where they eat, rest, water the plants and do their chores together.
