Fact: We could always use a little more happiness in our lives.
Animals bring us all kinds of joy by being our loyal companions or letting their cuteness loose in the wild. Every time one of my cats curls up in my lap or my dog does a trick, I've got a huge smile on my face. Even more awesome than that is the silly grins some animals get on their faces.
As it turns out, smiling is just as contagious as laughter!
