There are certain times when we just need a hug. You know-- when we thought Twinkies were going extinct or after the 'Game of Thrones' 'Red Wedding' episode, AKA hard-hitting stuff.

But luckily, there are few things a big old bear (or dog/cat/any fluffy animal) hug can't cure these days. Got a case of the Monday (or Tuesday) blues? Then take a cue from these adorable animals, and hug the heck out of your friend today. Aww, man!
