Not much has a better shot of making us smile on the days we absolutely don’t feel like it than animals. Whether they’re our pets, our neighbor’s pets, random animals who cross our paths, or pictures we run across on the internet, they just make us feel better.

And of those pictures, I personally can’t get enough of the ones of “melted” pets – the ones that prove animals can absolutely go boneless when they feel like it.

17. I can’t remember the last time I slept this well.


16. This looks like some kind of weird painting.

Are we sure that’s a cat?

15. Even sea creatures get in on the action.

Manatees are the cows of the ocean.

14. You can barely make it out.

I want one.

13. “Hamster puddles.”

An apt description.

12. Is it a cow or a puppy?

You decide.

11. That is a LOT of fur.

I bet he looks half the size when he’s wet!

10. Was it a hot sidewalk?

Is that bird a candle?

9. This literally looks like a cat-fur rug.

Not that we would condone such a thing.

8. It’s ears just make it all the better.

Bunnies are the best!

7. I cannot.

Y’all. I am not ok!

6. Classic image.

That is a beautiful cat.

5. If it fits, she sits.

And sleeps, obviously.

4. What a derp.

This would have made me laugh so hard.

3. Ewwww.

I’m sorry but no this is not adorable.

2. Oh my goodness those jowels.

I know it’s wrong, but he’s still cute.

1. One of these things is not like the other.

There’s something for everyone in the realm of cats.

They’re just like a toddler who doesn’t want to be picked up, right?
