We all know how to maintain our physical health: eat well, exercise, get enough sleep.


But keeping our mental health in check is a crucial, yet often overlooked, component of living a full life. Thankfully, we’ve got animal memes to lift our spirits any time we start to feel down in the dumps. Science supports the fact that looking at animal pictures provides mood-boosting benefits that fight depression and anxiety. See? Animal memes are good for you!

1. We’re not sure about you, but there’s something off about this cat. We just can’t put our finger on it.

2. When they start to snore, you know they’re faking it.

3. What’s this? Oh, just the sweetest picture ever taken. No biggie.

4. “You don’t mind if I help myself to a tiny sip, do you hooman?”

5. Looks don’t matter when you’ve really found your peeps.

6. Now he’s never going to stop coming over!

7. He’s pretending to be a condiment. Cat-sup, anyone?

8. Don’t let his guilty look fool you. He was totally framed.

9. He’s working out some new material, and it’s lit.

10. What? Doesn’t everyone meditate while wearing a sunflower hat?

12. Chef Lenny “loafs you very much.”

13. If I kinda-sorta-fits, I sits.

14. We would follow this dog anywhere.
