In many ways, pets are like children - and their obsession with plushie toys is something that demonstrates it. When a doggie, a kitty or a little mouse cuddles with a toy that is sometimes even bigger than the animal itself, it's pure cuteness overload. However, the reasons why pets love toys might be somewhat different than those of human children.

For instance, like dogs, pets see their plushies as a prey - that's why they sometimes chew on and even rip the stuffed toys they play with apart. For other pets, who were weaned too early from their mothers, toys can provide a much needed sense of comfort and security. And sometimes pets keep their plushies next to them simply for the warmth and softness they provide.

Whatever the reasons, one thing is for sure - pets with toys is the definition of adorable.

When I was a child, I was told that animals could not go to Heaven as people could. I got very angry and when I lost my dog I was nearly inconsolable. I see these pictures today and I want to send those self-righteous bungle brains a note saying, "I'll see this seal in heaven before you have time to make your first excuse.

looks just like my siamese when he was a kitten. Enjoy the quiet while they sleep... when they are awake, they NEVER stop talking, and getting into things. It's like having a 2 year old!
