If you ever doubted the emotional intelligence of a cow, this video will put your doubts to rest. Just take a look! The second these sweet cows see their human best friend, they run up to greet her just like little dogs!

Okay, so instead of barks of excitement, there’s a lot of mooing going on … and maybe there’s no jumping or face licking, but seriously, look at these cows! They are super stoked to see their friend and when she says she’ll be right back, they’re having none of it. This might just be the cutest thing you’ll see today!

There are so many things to love about cows. They are massive and beautiful beasts to begin with, they’re also incredibly tender and they really like ear and chin scratchies (sound familiar cat and dog guardians?). There’s really no difference in these species (although one might be easier to potty train).
