Domestic animals are subjected to so much scrutiny about their cuteness. With the insatiable demand for ever-more-unrealistically-adorable pet pics, the pressure to pretend to have perfect fur, perfect slobber, and a perfectly chubby belly has gotten even worse in the Internet era. Since most house pets choose to stay at home, many believe their only purpose is to look great at all times for any Instagram opportunities that may pop into their owners' heads. That's why we find it refreshing to see make-up-free pets refusing to leash themselves to conformity.
