Dodie Smith once said, “Noble deeds and hot baths are the best cures for depression.”

That may be true for some people, but for us, looking at pictures of cute animals going rub-a-dub-dub in the tub is a much better end-of-the-week blues buster.

So have at it. Set aside the piles of work and to-do lists for a couple minutes and get your fix. Here are six of the cutest animal bath photos we could find:

Ma! I’m too old and too big to be taking baths with my little sister!


I only take baths once every half dozen years, so I don’t miss a spot.


Uh, me thinks it’s full.


Say hello to my lil friend.
