Everyone knows animals love to be scratched, pet, and loved. But did you know the true way to an animal’s heart is a brush? And before I get a million angry dog owners in the comments telling me their dog hates being brushed, I know. I was just like you once, but I’ve been shown the way.
We’ve wrangled together 30 of the cutest gifs of animals being absolutely pampered by their owners with one simple brush. Who knew something so simple could be so cute?
The animals in this roundup are so cute, you might want to pull up a tab on the ASPCA website and start filling out those adoption papers. And, while irresponsible pet adoption is a bad idea, you might not be able to help yourself after this.

Oh, cause it’s weird? Fair enough.
The happiest dog you’ll ever see

This cat is about to enter another dimension, that’s how comfortable they are.
I love it when they knead the air with their paws. It makes me melt.
She’s really leaning into it!
This cat might as well be saying, “You can have your brushes when I’m finished.”
That’s the cat attitude we all know and love.
Pretty sure this cat thinks it’s royalty. And I don’t blame them.
Dogs are way too clever. That’s a good scratch.
Big floof getting pampered!
He’s being brushed into a little furball!

He has no power over the brush! That is his greatest weakness.

The way she bites her paw is so cute!

Giant cat or little hand? I guess we’ll go with the little hand.

“I will never let this brush out of my sight. We are friends now.”
