We love most web memes, but animal memes hold a special place in our hearts.

Maybe it’s because animals have such expressive faces, so we can see human-like emotions and thoughts written there as clear as day. Or maybe it’s because even when they’re naughty, they’re still so cute and fuzzy we want to cuddle them. We’re honestly not sure what the appeal is, but we do know that our furry friends never fail to make us smile.
