Because pets are even more adorable when they have pets, we couldn’t resist sharing these examples of animals being absolutely adorable by petting other animals. And with Valentine’s Day in the air and all, we want to share the love (and squee-ing) with all of you!
This golden retriever is petting this cat, but does not know his own strength.
The cat has no patience for this nonsense. None at all.
Isn’t this “little piggy” the abso-freaking-lutely cutest thing you’ve ever seen?
Protect her, kitty! Protect her!
When humans pet animals, it’s kind of like giving them a massage.
Same goes between pets.
This is a cordial, friendly exchange between cat and dog.
It’s okay, they have time to get to know each other.
Sometimes, rabbit ears feel so soft, we’re tempted to nibble on them too.
The lines between massage/petting/grooming are blurred here.
But whatever you’d classify it, this golden lab looks like he just DGAF.
Not even sure how these two met, but that fawn looks terrified.
The puppy just wants to be her friend!
In our head, these two are best friends. The black cat’s reassuring his canine friend, “There, there.” The canine friend is not sure what he’s being reassured about. But that’s okay. Because CUTE. So cute.
