Been a rough week? We feel for you. So much so that, on a whim, I’ve decided to use my editorial powers to create the cutest collection of photos you’ll see probably see this month: animals cuddling!

Diving deep into the most popular photos ever uploaded to 500px that involve the word “cuddle” in some way or another, I’ve subjected myself to an aww-inducing half-hour of curation for the sole purpose of putting a smile on your face as you head into the weekend.

You’re welcome… world.
