40 Adorable Cows That Might Uplift Your Moo-d
The first things that come to mind when thinking about cute animals are dogs or cats. Then you may remember bunnies and hamsters, but cows wouldn’t be at the top of the list. And it’s a shame because they have the most adorable faces too.
Most of us would think that cows are kept in homes just for milk or meat, but they can be great pets too, filling the owner’s heart with joy and love. Bored Panda acknowledges their beauty and went on the internet to compile this list for you to learn what lovely animals cows can be.
Cows were one of the first animals to be domesticated. The process started more than 10,500 years ago and they were used for meat and milk, while their skin, hair, horns and bones were also used for clothing and everyday tools. Since the beginning, cows were a valuable animal for humans. Scientists say that they were used as currency as early as 9,000 BC and they could be called one of the first forms of money.
After all these years, the animal still is a very big part of people’s diet, but what has changed is that more people have become emotionally attached to them and started keeping them as pets.

Cows actually are gentle and friendly, so it is no wonder they have become pets. And after seeing these photos, you’ll realize that their appearance is also really adorable.
However, they're not that easy to keep as they are definitely not apartment-friendly and they need more care than a cat or a dog. The obvious thing is that they need land to graze and you have to think about where would you put them in winter if it gets cold where you live. And if they get sick, you need a specialized veterinarian because not all of them know how to treat every domestic animal.
If you are financially able and can provide a cow with a comfortable home, you will get a really good friend. They‘ve been with humans for thousands of years and that means they have learned to socialize. Moreover, they are not as stupid as they may seem. They want to play with you and they are possible to train. For example, you can teach them to turn in a circle or lie down.
It’s not a coincidence that in some religions, a cow is seen as something comparable to a lamb of god. For many Hindus, cows are sacred animals because they are depicted as companions of certain gods.
