Melting Animals That Belong In A Salvador Dali Painting

Animal-lovers often joke that cats are actually liquid. But cats aren’t the only animals who can convert to a liquid state. Dogs, birds, guinea pigs, and hamsters also sink into a pancake shape. Adorable animals defy the laws of physics.

Birds become melted ice cream. Dogs dissolve into water. Hamsters will like very tiny burger patties. Here are animals that “melted” for one reason or another. Once you see them, they’ll melt your heart.

This Balloon With A Beak Deflated

He chirp. Then he blirp. This bird deflated like a balloon in a matter of seconds. Birds are like Play-Doh; they mold into your palm when they randomly decide to turn into a dumpling.

This position means that the bird is genuinely relaxed. He genuinely enjoys sitting in his owner’s hand. No wonder we wish we were in the bird’s place. We would also like to deflate like a balloon.

Hamster Pancakes

It’s a little-known fact that hamsters deflate into pancakes while they’re sleeping. But in this case, the gravity setting was turned on a little too high. They’re practically boneless. You could flip them with a spatula if you wanted to wake them up.

Have you noticed the rebel in the bottom left corner yet? He found another bed by sinking in between a tiny crevice. That’s what happens when your hamsters all melt at once.

Cats Are Actually Liquid

You’ve heard of the Cat in the Hat; now get ready for… well, a cat in a box. Don’t ask us how they got in there. Cats can somehow move like they have no bones at all. Their expression is serious mood, though.

Cat owners often share a joke that kitties love to sit in boxes. Apparently, the container doesn’t need to fit them. Cats can break the laws of physics to sit inside of a box.

Ducks Melt At 90°F

Dropped ice cream, or white ducks? Without the beaks, you’d never know. If you have ducks at home, make sure to store them at room temperature. They have a pretty low melting point compared to other birds. It’s simple animal physics if you think about it.

If these ducks keep melting, they’ll soon drip into the man-made lake. Good thing they’re waterproof. Someone get these poor ducks an air conditioner.

Looks Like A Salvador Dali Painting

How cute are dogs with droopy faces? They always look like they’re melting. But this bloodhound has ended up flat on the floor. She’d fit right in the Dali painting “The Persistence of Memory.”

There’s nothing more adorable than a blob of dog on the floor. Fortunately, the carpet is white, or else the owners might not be able to see her. They’ll think that they spilled something on the floor.

Melted Guinea Pig, Or A L’Oreal Model?

Introducing the guinea wig! This little guy presents the cure for baldness. This is a Coronet guinea pig who needs a hair trim. At least their fur looks clean and fabulous!

Despite the shampoo-commercial aesthetic, their long fur makes the guinea pig look like they’re transforming into a rug. If their owner needs a wig, they’ll receive a quality product from this guinea pig. If not, they should still give their pet a fur cut.

“My Melting Doesn’t Concern You”

“Was finishing up my lunch when I saw this bird try and melt into the ground,” the original poster wrote, “and then stare at me like I was wrong for judging.” Hey, it’s no one’s place to judge a bird’s actions. If they want to become a puddle, they can. It’s a free country.

Although this bird looks like a crow, it’s actually a Grackle. These birds always look like they’re giving people the stink eye, which only makes this photo funnier.

Good Boy Is Dissolving

If Urban Outfitters released a dog bath bomb, this would be it. Seeing fur melt into water is always hilarious. And this pooch is 90% fur. He practically dissolves in that bathtub. If not for his snout, would you even see him?

If you find this funny, imagine what this dog will look like when you pull him out of the tub. He’ll lose 70% of his body mass. Or at least, he’ll appear to lose most body mass.

Where’d The Rest Of Him Go?

Maybe this is why cats don’t like stepping into the water. Once you smooth down the fur, you see how much of your kitty is fur. He looks like he shed half of his body weight. This cat has transformed into a Pez dispenser with whiskers.

He is evidently not happy with his human. If he can make it through this bath and a blow-drying session, he’ll probably pout in a corner for a while. We’d be upset of half of our bodies shrank, too.

Someone Spilled Their Bulldog

This picture audibly says, “bleh.” The bulldog used up all his good boy for today. He has to recharge. If you’re not a bulldog owner, you might not recognize his expression as a smile. But trust and believe: he is smiling.

Have you ever jumped into bed and felt yourself sink into it? This is the visual embodiment of that experience. It isn’t even possible for this pup to melt into the cushion more.

Hamsters Melt Right Into Your Hand

If you want to make your hamster go flat, just hold them in your hand and pet them gently. Hamsters are like Play-Doh; they mold with a gentle caress. And who doesn’t want to snuggle this melted hamster?

Unfortunately, this technique does not work with people as well. Only animals can go full liquid when they want to. If you keep petting this hamster, eventually they’ll dissipate into a gas.

Get The Air Pump!

Quick! This bunny is rapidly running out of air! Get the air pump for him. He’ll sink through the floor at this rate.

In all seriousness, rabbits do this all the time. It means that they’re very relaxed. Usually, they “flop” beforehand, where they fall over from joy. Yes, it’s as cute as it sounds. If your rabbit is comfortable enough, you could end up with a bun puddle like this.

Kitty Or Slinky?

You’re familiar with Slinky Dog; now get ready for Slinky Kitty. This photo is proof that a cat’s bones are actually just a slinky. When they get too hot, they revert to this floppy state. Someone grab the cat and throw them into the freezer before they melt into the table.

If you think about it, cats are just furry snakes. They have legs, sure; but they don’t need to travel using their legs. They’re slithery.

The Hammock Is Leaking

This little guy is dripping off of his hammock. As a little-known fact, chinchillas can convert to liquid form. Their bones turn into floof like the rest of their bodies.

Based on the pink color of his ears, this little guy seems pretty toasty. He’s either relaxing in warm weather or just got back from a strenuous play session. Since the original poster didn’t clarify, we’re going to assume that he played too rigorously.

This Greyhound Has Become Part Of The Bed

Greyhounds have two modes: race car and couch potato. Here, we witness the elusive lazy greyhound. These long boys seem to change their state of matter when they sleep on their beds. Well–sleep on half of their bed.

Despite the unusual pose, this dog seems very comfortable. Never doubt the ability of pups to go full derp within a second, even the world’s fastest dog. They are the connoisseurs of comfort.

It’s Raining Cats

Behold, a real-life pillow-pet. Although most people never witness this phenomenon, this is what happens when it literally rains cats and dogs. Other names for this rare, majestic animal include cuddleslug, furpuddle, and pancat. Surely a sight to behold.

We’re pretty sure that the cat still has his arms and legs somewhere in there. Hopefully. Otherwise, he truly is a cat slug. Just roll him back inside when the weather becomes too hot.

That Is One Comfy Bun

If you couldn’t see the ears, you might think this was a pillow. A very soft, flexible pillow. This cutie patootie is so asleep that she became one with the blanket. If she isn’t the epitome of Sunday morning laziness, we don’t know what is.

Imagine a squishy toy that’s also fluffy. That’s what this bun looks like. Just looking at how cozy she is will make anyone feel sleepy.

Hoot If You Need Help Getting Up

Have you ever seen an owl lying flat on their stomach? Now you have. Young owls commonly take naps while lying down. That’s how they manage to sleep in trees without falling off. So, yes, owls regularly melt.

That doesn’t make this owl less of a pancake, though. The little guy has wilted. Try misting them with water and placing them in the shade. They may perk up after a solid watering session.

Rat Is Flat

Although many people don’t like rats, they make wonderful pets. Like any pet, sometimes they get lazy. This rat was so tired that she couldn’t even step off her food bowl. Even her tail looks like it’s dripping off the bowl.

Rodents have the ability to transform into a liquid just like cats do. Because rats are social animals, they often sleep next to or on top of each other, like a furry stack of pancakes.

When You’re Too Tired To Gather Nuts

You know it’s hot when even the squirrels want to take a nap. This bussy-tailed friend couldn’t even make it up a tree before crashing. Based on the bowl, though, this squirrel might be domesticated.

Hey, when it’s nap time, it’s nap time. Nothing will get in the way of animals sleeping. Even squirrels become flat when they finally burn out after gathering too many nuts. This one’s a hard worker for sure.
