These tweets reveal the times when humans got the much-needed love and assurance from their mute buddies and it's absolutely emotional yet wholesome.
People who love animals know pretty well that they are not selfish creatures who stick to people just to get fed and receive shelter over their heads. Pet parents know it even better that their pets are more loyal, thoughtful and selfless compared to any human they have in their lives. Some people even believe that they and their pets have been destined for each other.
It's natural to think that way because having a furry friend or any other kind of pet at your home who bonded well with you for years, is bound to provide you some level of emotional support and stress relief. In good or hard times, sickness or health, these mute angels are always by the side of their owners, picking up on their fluctuating emotions to comfort them in the best way possible.
So when a Twitter user @its_me_your_mom shared a tearjerking story about encountering an unfamiliar dog who arrived at the perfect moment to comfort her post the death of her cat, several Twitter users poured in to share tales of emotional and wholesome interactions with their own pet or someone else's. Many of these people agreed that there is nothing better than your pet buddies reading your emotions and giving you their much-needed company. Here are 25 of the most precious confessions by pet parents which are bound to make you sentimental.
Recently my grandpa passed away. He was in the hospital for a few days. My cat would sleep under his bed and scratch his couch, looking for him. When he passed, she stopped doing it like she knew. And when I got Covid, she stayed with me in bed until I was healed— Dariana 💕 (@AwkwardDari) June 9, 2023
A few days before our cat suddenly got sick and died, one dog gave her his bed. I didn’t realize what he was trying to tell me. Then when she collapsed, all three stayed in another room then waited until I put her on my daughter’s bed to say goodbye. They know. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/GGhW1MO5Hw— Chris Butler (@cgbutler27) June 10, 2023
when my dog passed years ago, my roommate's cat climbed into bed with me and looked at me so softly then slept there the whole night. ❤️— Momo (@envysnest) June 10, 2023
When my cat died I was inconsolable. Went to a friend’s house and her cat climbed into my lap, up on my chest, and purred for HOURS. I just cried and held him. Animals know— Queen Sonia 🧝🏽♀️ (@sunnymavis1) June 9, 2023
animals know!! any time i’ve ever been struggling it’s like my dog knows. she’ll come rest her head on me for a second to help ground me and comfort me and then she’ll go about her day and it’s so sweet :’)— mar (@morrisseyh8page) June 9, 2023
One time my friend was in a vicious text-war with her ex bf at my house and hadn’t told us for a few hours. When she told us, it made sense why my dog had gotten up on the back of the couch and had been cuddling her scarf-style the whole time. They know🥺— gabriella grasso (@GabriellaPariss) June 9, 2023
When I lost my dog, my mom’s dog (who I wasn’t close with) sat guard at my doorway for the rest of the day 🤗 pic.twitter.com/NKprYezP8j— laurie ann 🟧 (@lingram13) June 9, 2023
I once took a phone call outside that ended up being a breakup and when I came home, my dog walked over to me and rested her head on my lap🥺 she had never done that before. We could learn sooo much from dogs— 🌙 (@NomiEbony) June 9, 2023
Went to my friend’s house after my cat of 17 years died. Their cat got into my arms and just head-cuddled forever with me. pic.twitter.com/TPa9f4627c— ...still wear your mask... (@vegafallingstar) June 9, 2023
Animals are truly amazing I choked up reading this!! Reminds me of the time my dog did the same for my dad when his dog passed. She knew exactly what he needed 😭— StrengthScripted (@ScriptedJanice) June 10, 2023
My dog let me cry into her neck once. Idk how she knew it was the grieving kind of cry but she knew.— ╭༺♡༻─ Isa ─༺♡༻╯ (@Isa_11_AC) June 9, 2023
Im amazed at the dog you never had met comforting you the same. So wonderful 💖
Dogs know emotions. One time in highschool I was going through some really sad emotions and this one classmate of mine was training a guide dog. That sweet puppy kept trying to get permission to go comfort me during that whole class since she sensed my feelings. 😭— Yubs (@ThisIsYubs) June 10, 2023
When I lost my soulmate kitty a year ago, one of my other cats who NEVER slept on my bed in 8 years, was there next to my pillow every night for a month. She had lost her husband cat a year before and was struggling herself to accept two friends passing.— Amber May 💉💉💉😷 @email@example.com (@AmberMay2021) June 10, 2023
That's a beautiful story. Animals are something incredible.— Monnie (@monniemooboo) June 10, 2023
Our family cat didn't leave my Grandma's side during her last few weeks. Stayed day and night in her bed.
The moment she died, he got up and left.
I used to have a little orange cat friend who was not mine, but (with permission) came into my house to hang out with me every day. He was with me the whole time I was really sick. When I started using a wheelchair he juat hopped up on my lap like “we’re doing this now? Ok”— Max Fisher 🧡 (@OuchTheMouse) June 10, 2023
After my beloved dog died, my best friend’s dog did the same. 100+ pounds, she crawled on top of me and put her head on my head. I could not stop crying. He just died the other day, rest in peace little angel.— goldnecklace (@goldnecklace2) June 10, 2023
My young cat died unexpectedly in March. He was my blind, elderly pug’s support. Almost immediately, my good boy Monte, who never liked to hang out so close to her, took over the job. pic.twitter.com/7tWnBCObHH— MonieLuv (@Monie625) June 9, 2023
When I went through a really traumatic experience/loss, I stayed with family. My cousin’s cat who I had met once before was at the door yelling in excitement before I came in. That cat only left my side to sleep the entire duration of my stay and comforted me when I cried.— Pietro’s Bestie🎪💕 (@magicalgirl222) June 9, 2023
When my cat died, my dog came in my room and for the first time, slept in the spot where my cat would sleep. They know and they want to comfort us. ❤️— Becca (@Bexter50) June 9, 2023
I was once sad & stressed about my husband’s condition while visiting my mom without him & her Golden padded over to my bed that night, kissed me so gently on the cheek & padded back to his bed. And it was one of the sweetest things I’ve ever experienced. He just clearly knew.— Enough Already #VoteBlue (@BetOnHumanity) June 9, 2023
A year ago, my daughter was in Boston, and I watched her 13 yo, very ill dog. He passed as she spoke to him at the vet. She sat on a curb to take this in when a corgi came to her and did the same thing for her. It helped her so much. I'm sorry, much love. 💛— KathyRangel Resists🇺🇸 (@KathyRangel729) June 9, 2023
When I lost my dog to cancer my cat's grief was unbearable. He cried for his friend for days. I did more comforting than I received, but that in itself was therapeutic. We cried together. 😭— KK-Dragon (@DKodaKat) June 9, 2023
When my cat died, i went to my friends the next day, her dog who was normally not super friendly to me... he only met me once before, and he stayed by my side the entire time 😭— anyanka~decides on felony or ice cream in the car (@quitabunnies) June 8, 2023
We had this experience only our dog comforted a shop owner who had just lost her own dog. Our Dennis boy was wary of people he didn’t know but walked over and sat on her foot.— TartofDarknessRedux, 🐳 TartRedux (@tartredux) June 9, 2023
Later when I lost him, a total stranger in a local park comforted me. pic.twitter.com/0HlJvKRVmW
when my cat died I needed to get away so I booked a little cabin and the night I got there i was sitting outside looking at the stars and thinking and the owners dog came out. he came right over to me and sat next to me silently and leaned into me. he leaned so hard...— Tiff (@its_me_your_mom) June 8, 2023
