Toys are an inseparable part of childhood days. However, we might become so fond of some of them that we might keep them even when we are much older. Even if somebody tries to replace our favorite toy with the identical copy of the same kind, we can notice it is different because of the specific texture or smell we are used to. We’ve heard numerous times that animals are very similar to humans in certain aspects, and these cute photos are here to confirm that. Pets take care of their toys in the same way they care about us. Even when their favorite thing is not as it used to be due to a passage of time, they keep loving them in the same way. And if these cats and dogs love their toys so much after such a long time, you can realize how they feel about you even in those days when you are not the best version of yourself.
Dog on the shelf
A shelf never seemed like a better place for sleeping. This clever dog found a perfect spot for his bed and since it is made of wood, it is very promising that it will last for long. Whether in an attempt to draw the attention of his nerdy master or because he just loves that smell of old books, nobody could use this shelf for any other purposes. However, once he started growing up, he couldn’t fit into his favorite spot, be he decided to never leave it and simply sleep in front of it, because no bigger shelf can replace the old, good one.

Who said cats and bears cannot be friends? This photo proves it is not true. While her masters are at work, this cat found a great company in the form of a small teddy bear. They can walk around together, prepare a tea party or play hide and seek. And in the case something accidentally gets broken, there is always someone else to blame. The look in cat’s eyes when it’s just a kitten and when it’s a grown cat confirms they are well-known partners in crime.

Dog and a magic lamp
Do you remember that time when you were little and very afraid of darkness? Do you remember when you had to have a night lamp, so you could turn it on in case you’re having a nightmare? This dog obviously felt the same when he was a baby, so he decided that his best friend would simply be a lamp. As a puppy he would roll his whole body around the lamp, but once he grew up he couldn’t fit there anymore. However, the second picture shows that men…animals are creatures of habit.

We all watched so many Disney cartoons growing up that they have simply become part of us and precious part of our childhood. We accepted as normal that a duck can be extremely rich and that a mouse can talk. But one thing was particularly peculiar. How can Goofy who is a dog be friends and even fall in love with Clarabelle who is a cow? This photo of a dog with his cow shows that it is possible, and even long-lasting! If Walt Disney was alive, I’m sure he could find some new inspiration about his characters after seeing this picture.

This absolutely heart-warming photo shows how size is dependable upon the object we compare it to. The small kitten and its teddy are of the same size and seem like twins. We can’t be sure how big a teddy actually is, until the kitten grows up. However, the old toy remains in the embrace of its owner years after the kitten got it. We wouldn’t dare separate them.

Multiple purpose toy
Many people tend to throw away their old things after they have outgrown them or they can’t serve their intended purpose. But, this cat is quite sentimental and decided never to let go of its old friend – a stuffed puddle. What once could be used as a blanket for keeping her warm in cold winter nights, now can very well be used as a fluffy pillow for sweet dreams.

Rubik’s cube or a coconut
When I was little I got Rubik’s cube for my birthday. I remember spending many days trying to solve it, and I kept it for a long time, hoping that one day I will succeed. This dog obviously thought in the same way as I did. He found his Rubik’s cube in the form of a coconut and kept trying to solve it even when he grew up.

Vegetarianism became a highly popular diet and spread all around the world. But I never thought it went so far as to reach the dog kingdom. With his original carrot toy this dog acts like an advocate of vegetarianism. However, we are sure he would be very sorry to actually eat his carrot.

In this picture we can see another Disney fan with his favorite toy Mickey Mouse. I can understand this dog, because I always wanted Mickey for my best friend. After he grew up, Mickey remained in his possession and after somebody tried to steal it from him, he put his paw on him saying: Don’t touch it, it’s mine!

This image proves that you can learn a lot by observing your pets.
