#461 – Embrace an Animal

Embrace an Animal
If you can’t be with the pet you love, love the pet you’re with.

Embrace an Animal

Go cuddle with a chimpanzee
or grasp a kangaroo,
Make friends with any antelope
and hold it close to you.

Try nuzzling an octopus
or clinging to a skunk.
Next time you’re near an elephant,
go squeeze its mighty trunk.

Embrace a hippopotamus
or snuggle with a snake,
but hugging on a porcupine’s
a terrible mistake.

Side note: I draw these at 5:00 in the morning, and I don’t always think details through.  No questionably-appropriate positioning of legs or noses is intentional.
