19 Ridiculous Animal Memes That Prove We're the Lesser Species Once and for All | 22 Words

Whenever it seems as though the world is full of garbage, it's nice to have reminders that there's still good in the world.

If life starts to feel like it's just too much, take a second and remember that there are rainbows, and daisies, and — most importantly — animals.

In case you need a stronger reminder of just how lucky we are to have animals in our lives, I've rounded up some of the funniest animal memes on the Internet. Here they come!

Fact: There is no creature on Earth more perfect than your perfect, adorable, sweet pet. This is true for all pet owners.

Honestly, though, how do these creatures look exactly like my grandparents? (Also, if I told my grandparents that my job today was writing about funny pictures of animals, these are the exact expressions they would have.)

What is it the kids are saying these days? Ah, yes. Big mood.

Oh, this? This is just my leg. I hold it like this sometimes. Anyway, how are you? Anyone who has ever had a cat fall asleep on their lap will relate to this next image...

It's not so much that they'll be angry if you wake them up (although that could certainly be true for some pets). It's just that they look so adorable and sweet and peaceful when they sleep and you don't want to disturb them. Even if you haven't eaten all day.

Any religion that involves cats is A-OK in my book. I think the Ancient Egyptians had things pretty well figured out.

Don't listen to them, dog. You're perfect and you're doing a great job.

The betrayal! May you never be on the receiving end of a look like this.

This is what people mean when they say they're "living their best life." And now for a laundry mishap (with a happy ending!)...

via: Twitter

I see that you said there was bad news, but I'm seeing nothing but good news, here. Are you sure there was a problem?

Most likely, your cat catches bugs for their own enjoyment and couldn't care less that they're also providing you some relief. But we'll let it slide.

It's a good thing my job doesn't offer to pay me in yawny dog squeaks. I would be a very poor woman. But also, very rich.

via: Tumblr

Yes, Netflix. I'm still here, and I don't appreciate your judgy tone.

via: Instagram

This is too real. I can't even join in on shaming that dog because I've done similarly questionable things when trying to cut carbs. And now one for the horse-lovers...

via: Tumblr

It's true! It's not a real road trip unless you've seen horses — and announced to the entire vehicle that you have seen them.

via: Tumblr

Surely it's not that difficult to understand, human. After all, don't you know you exist solely to cater to my every whim?

via: Tumblr

Not only is this eerily accurate, I'm also super impressed that this cat managed to take two selfies! We really are living in the future.

via: Tumblr

Hey, man. No regrets. It's a dog-eat-dog world out there.

Finally, someone is making my kind of television. Don't forget to share these hilarious animal memes with a fellow pet-lover!
