You May Be Surprised How Adorable Cows Can Be (217 Photos)

The first things that come to mind when thinking about cute animals are dogs or cats. Then you may remember bunnies and hamsters, but cows wouldn’t be at the top of the list. And it’s a shame because they have the most adorable faces too.

Most of us would think that cows are kept in homes just for milk or meat, but they can be great pets too, filling the owner’s heart with joy and love. Bored Panda acknowledges their beauty and went on the internet to compile this list for you to learn what lovely animals cows can be.

#1 Fluffiest Cow

Cows were one of the first animals to be domesticated. The process started more than 10,500 years ago and they were used for meat and milk, while their skin, hair, horns and bones were also used for clothing and everyday tools. Since the beginning, cows were a valuable animal for humans. Scientists say that they were used as currency as early as 9,000 BC and they could be called one of the first forms of money.

After all these years, the animal still is a very big part of people’s diet, but what has changed is that more people have become emotionally attached to them and started keeping them as pets.

Cows actually are gentle and friendly, so it is no wonder they have become pets. And after seeing these photos, you’ll realize that their appearance is also really adorable.

However, they’re not that easy to keep as they are definitely not apartment-friendly and they need more care than a cat or a dog. The obvious thing is that they need land to graze and you have to think about where would you put them in winter if it gets cold where you live. And if they get sick, you need a specialized veterinarian because not all of them know how to treat every domestic animal.

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

If you are financially able and can provide a cow with a comfortable home, you will get a really good friend. They‘ve been with humans for thousands of years and that means they have learned to socialize. Moreover, they are not as stupid as they may seem. They want to play with you and they are possible to train. For example, you can teach them to turn in a circle or lie down.

It’s not a coincidence that in some religions, a cow is seen as something comparable to a lamb of god. For many Hindus, cows are sacred animals because they are depicted as companions of certain gods.

From afar, cows can seem scary because they are big animals that have horns and if you’re not familiar with their personality, you might be afraid they could get angry very easily or start attacking you unexpectedly.

But that’s not the case and they are actually very lovely creatures, as it can be felt looking at the pictures. Which ones of these are your favorite? Would you like to have a cow as a pet or do you have one and would like to share your experience owning one? Share all your thoughts in the comments!

#23 Meet Moonpie, The Cow That Thinks She’s A Dog

She was spotted at a livestock auction house, got rescued and was taken to Rocky Ridge Refuge Sanctuary. As the weather was really bad and she was too small to be outside with the other cows. Moonpie stayed in her human mom’s bedroom and eventually befriended her canine companions. They clean her face, the way her mother would have. They love to do that. They were all thrilled to see her. However, Moonpie is particulary fond of a deaf bull terrier Spackle.

About the eartags. In Finland (and many other countries) all cattle must be tagged with two eartags, it is a law. No matter the use of a cow, it has to have a tag in both of its ears with indentification number. If it falls in some point of a cows life, a new tag must be put on. We also have to inform every birth, every death, every change to this bovine register where they keep track on every cow in Finland, for example because of food safety and various other things. Tags look very big for the calves , but they grow quickly and in adults you don’t really see them because of the fluffy hair. The tags are quickly put in to the ears and is just like to put a ear piercing for human, hurts only for a second and is soon over.
