Because, sometimes, you just need an adorable little critter to bring out those pearly whites...

In partnership with Pearl Drops.

Looking at cute animal pictures on the internet can increase your productivity at work. Fact.

We’re not just passing on information that happens to fit in with our personal agendas, we’re actually passing on scientific (sorta) knowledge. Because, a study was conducted by a researcher for Hiroshima University, showing that cute images can lift your mood and motivation.

Yup, AS IF you needed any more of an excuse to while away your hours basking in the cuteness of puppies, kittens, pandas and the like.

Something else we’re willing to bet our bottom dollar on is the fact that, quite honestly, these furry critters will just make you smile. And who wouldn’t love that?

So in the spirit of sharing the love, we’re here to bring you some adorable animal GIFs, in partnership with Pearl Drops.

1. Let’s start off with, quite possibly, the cutest puppy on the internet.
