Now that I've been working from home for almost a year, I still can't figure out what my cats think about my constant presence. Naturally, they want to snuggle up at the most inopportune moments — like when I'm on a Zoom call for work — or I try to play with them only to be met with the feline version of an eye roll.

From adorable dogs who pester their owners for cuddles to a sweet cow that just wants to hang out with his mama, we love seeing just how needy some animals are.
