Pumpkin is a rescued Bahamian raccoon that lives with her rescue dog brothers—in a really nice home. It’s odd to see a raccoon cuddling on a sofa, but she looks so lovable it’s hard to not want a raccoon of your own.

You better believe this baby bunny is in good hands. Cleo’s mom is a food stylist and photographer, which means she’s hooked up with all the best fresh produce… Which also means we get an incredible amount of videos of Cleo being hand fed (aka, the only videos we want to watch on Instagram).

We hate to say it, but does it get ANY cuter than this? The answer is no. Lucas, born January 2016, is the most cuddly little puppy we’ve ever seen.

There’s something about Corgis that make them so lovable. Geordi La Corgi is no exception, obviously. Look at this photo of him prancing across a sidewalk and tell me you don’t have a smile on your face.

Smoothie and brother Milkshake make the best duo. Their videos are hilarious and the captions will make you laugh even harder. Follow and pretend like you have two virtual cats.
