19 Pets Who Bought Special Gifts For Their Owners

There is more than one way of expressing our love for the ones we adore. So, it doesn’t matter if you can’t talk them out of their problems, or even speak their language. If the bond is strong and unbreakable then everything else just becomes insignificant. Interestingly enough, animals are well aware of this. They speak to us on an emotional level without ever uttering a single word. They make us feel wanted and loved without having to say anything out loud. They do all this by their tiny gestures of love and appreciation, which I must say feel way bigger than they seem!

We all know how our pets show us affection by head-butting us and by jumping in our laps out of nowhere and, of course, by clawing and biting us in case of cats. But there’s more. Sometimes, they tell us they love us by bringing us the most random objects they find. I mean, if animals could, they’d bring us whatever gifts we’d want, but considering they can’t do all that, this is still a very pure gesture! Below we have 19 funny and adorable photos of pets bringing cute gifts for their owners. Enjoy!

While it may seem like our pets bring us “gifts,” the theories that revolve around this animal behavior tells a completely different story. Apparently, “carrying gifts” in mouth is related to hunting-instincts of many animals including dogs. Long before domestication, animals would have to regularly hunt for food and then carry their ‘prey’ in mouth and bring it to their family. So technically, this retrieving trait is just a variation of their old prey-carrying behaviour.
However, considering how domesticated animals react/interact with us humans today, most people believe that pets bringing them random gifts (even if it’s from their own house) are, in fact, just gifts that they want to present us with because they love us!
