14 Animal Jewels to Snuggle With on a Cold Winter’s Day

Many will agree that the best way to ride out the winter months is via frequent naps with a cat curled up next to you, behind your knees, or under the covers. Warm and furry, they are professional sleepers who make your bed feel like the most blissful place on the planet.

Nothing tops this particular wintertime comfort. Well, except for maybe jewelry. Specifically, jewelry that makes you likewise want to snuggle up and get cozy.

And while I do believe that felines fit the job best, who am I to argue with the cuddling potential, offered by, say, a polar bear and her cubs, an armful of dachshunds, a baby alpaca, or downy newborn chicks?

I channeled my inner Snow White to put together the edit below—don’t be shy, these little cuties would love to be loved.
