20+ Adorable Animals That Can Brighten Up Any Grumpy Day

Regardless of the day of the week, the weather, or life’s troubles, you can always give yourself a little warmth, love, and mood boost. All you need to do for it is to communicate with your beloved pet for a few minutes or to caress a stray dog or a cat. However, there is another way — watching cute photos of fluffies guarantees you a brightened day as well.

We at Bright Side are sure that if each of us gets in the habit of looking through compilations of adorable animals before our work day, we can put ourselves in a positive mood for the whole day.

Say “Hi!”


“Me and my ‘parrot’ Roxy”

“I love you to the fireplace and back.”

It’s good to have a friend who you can fool around with.

“I’m babysitting my friend’s cat and I did a photoshoot for her.”

“This dog extended his paw toward us as we walked by his gate.”

Beluga whale saves an iPhone from the sea in Norway


“Doug has his own sign and that’s almost the best part. He was so quiet, I didn’t notice him at first!”

“I work at a cat shelter. These are the ‘Can we keep him?’ photos I sent to my partner. It worked.”

“How my parents Great Dane puppy lays on the ottoman he outgrew”

When you are as bright as the sun inside (and out):

“I am a cruel monster!”

“Look at me, I’m a human.”


“Troubleshooting my broken cat”

“I was in another room and I heard my boyfriend explaining a game to someone, by his voice he was really excited about it, but there was no one else in the apartment. When I went back to the room, this is what I saw.”

This is what happens when the door to the dryer is left open...


“Got a live feed camera so I could see what my dogs are up to while I’m at work.”

“Every morning my husband sneaks out of bed to cuddle his ’mistress’...”

Cat-style photobomb

“It was a cruel prank, buddy...”

“He collected all the balls he could find in the house and then laid like this for 10 minutes.”

This happily smiling lioness beats the world-famous Mona Lisa and her mysterious smile.

“Paint me like one of your French girls.”

“This is what I come home to every day.”

“My dog can see out to the sidewalk in the reflection of my crystal ball, so he watches for people and cars, but it looks like he’s seeing the future.”

No hugs for dog.

We have to admit that a hugging turkey has taken our hearts forever. Which character of this compilation did you fall in love with? We would also be glad to see photos of your pets in the comments!
