We could watch the above video on repeat all day! In the video, two rescued cows cuddle up with their human caretaker for a peaceful nap at Juliana’s Animal Sanctuary, a safe haven in Columbia. One cow affectionately snuggles up with their caretaker, while the other naps close by and even gives the man kisses!

If you have ever been lucky enough to spend time with a cow, then you already know they are extremely intelligent and emotional animals. Studies have shown that when cows are with their best friends, their stress levels decrease and when separated from them, their stress levels increase. Cows also have strong maternal bonds and are attentive, protective, and loving parents.

Sadly, because cows and other farm animals are typically considered “food,” they are treated like commodities rather than individuals. Most never get to experience the incredible bonds of family or friendship. Instead, they are subjected to a life filled with fear, stress, and sadness – but we can change that.

Please share this post with your friends and family so that they too can see how affectionate and intelligent animals are. You can also learn more about these amazing animals by visiting one of the many animal sanctuaries where cows get to live in peace.
