Animals and people seem very different on the outside. Really, when you think about it what could a 2,000 pound cow, a 10 pound cat, and a 150 pound human have in common?

Well, the answer is actually a lot. Aside from sharing similar emotional abilities and the ability to learn and puzzle our ways through problems, animals and humans all want to be loved.

The animals at Santuario Igualdad Interspecie are lucky enough to have the love of dozens of different humans, chickens, pigs, cows, and goats each day! You can tell by the way the sweet cow in this video just melts into their human caretaker’s arms as she brushes his coat that he is the happiest cow on Earth.

Like people, cows have best friends and get stressed when they are separated from their BFFs for long. We don’t want to imagine how sad this cow would be if his human disappeared from his side.Many people don’t realize how affectionate and loyal cows really are, but this little guy puts all doubts to rest.

If only everyone could learn to love and respect farm animals like the kind people at Santuario Igualdad Interspecie, the world would be a much happier place.
