Animals whether they realize it or not provide us with a lot and by this we are definitely talking about the animal based products, but in terms of the emotions and support they provide us. One of the things that animals provide us though we can be sure not deliberately is that of amusement. The fact is that animals are so intrinsically cute that the things they do can be a cause for a lot of hilarity like these praying animal pictures. These cute praying animal pictures are so appealing that they can probably make the hardest heart melt and a smile to break through.
When you look at cute praying animal pictures, then the question that pops in your head is whether they are actually praying or is it just a pose that they assume without a thought. However, both assumptions would not be wrong. While the concept of praying is something that is not attributed to animals, as we assume they are basic beings. In many ways, animals are basic beings who focus on the basic aspects of living like foraging for food, seeking shelter and mating when the season comes in. However, animals that live with us interact with us, tend to take on some of the gestures that we use pretty frequently. One of them being the act of holding the two hands together as if in supplication.
Animals like cats, dogs and other such animals tend to look at the humans they live with and duplicate the act. Some cute praying animal pictures are a result of necessity like with squirrels or chipmunks when they rise up and hold their food (which is in most cases, nuts) in their front paws. This does make an opportunity to get your fill of cute praying animal pictures. Then with dogs, who also happen to be pretty smart and very biddable, the dog in question can be trained to make the praying gesture. And the smart being that he is, a dog soon knows that this praying animal picture that he or she paints looks appealing and can be used to beg for much needed treats from people.
What is more, animals have naturally appealing eyes that express the way they feel and this can be a definite advantage when they paint a cute praying animal picture. Cats unlike dogs are different creatures who feel that they own the human they live with rather than any feeling of belonging to them, but even cats are not beyond taking advantage of the praying gesture to get what they want.
Even birds would have used these praying gestures to create cute praying animal pictures but they cannot do that obviously due to physical shortcomings. However, animals with their four legs have an edge in this matter as they can stand on their back legs and hold the front two paws in such a way that it looks as if the animal is praying. When a cute little dog does it in front of you with innocent guile flowing out of its cute eyes, you are going to find yourself melting in a way akin to the way we melt when we look at cute and cuddly babies.
In some instances, the expression on the face of the animal and the way they hold their hands up in appeal makes such cute praying animal pictures that they would actually have you believing that they are appealing to the almighty. Maybe animals do pray and if so they pray for better food and an improved environment for them to live in, who knows?
