Do you remember the first time you experienced snow? It's kind of sad to imagine that some people never have because snow is awesome. Some of us have been lucky enough to see the excitement in our kids' faces when they first encountered snow. But animals are a lot like children, especially when they experience something new for the very first time. So, we came up with a collection of amusing photos of animals who finally got to see what snow was really all about, and the reactions are so adorable. But not everyone had a positive reaction to the soft blanketed white covering.
Instagram user Yayoi89's cat wasn't exactly sure what was going on, but from its perspective it seemed as if the sky was falling. Clearly, this warranted the kitty standing on its hind legs like a human to see what was going on.
Flickr user Mark_Tapley looks like a snow armored pooch with all those snowballs stuck to his fur. But he doesn't seem very happy about it.
Reddit user's Cactusy has a cat named Flour, and like its namesake, it too is white as snow. But this little kitty isn't impressed by the snow at all. In fact, she looks like a little angry white cloud, and it's so freaking adorable.
Normally, we find Golden Retrievers to be adorable, but reddit user sumptimwong's pooch looks borderline homocidal with its teeth and crazy eyes.
At first, it wasn't sure what it was. Then it decided to lick it and loved it. Maybe it decided to lay down like that because it got brain freeze, but to us, it looks so adorable, almost like a stuffed bear.
They say curiosity killed the cat, but in this case, it just made it freeze its paws off! Just look at the terrified look on the poor kitty's face.
Imgur user Stephy151 recalls how her sister and her husband had recently adopted this puppy, and this was his first time in the snow.
Imgur user morgasmic took her dog, Kiora outside to experience snow. But it learned that running in this thing is like running underwater. In less than no time, she was so exhausted that she simply rested her body on the snow, and eventually her whole head. She was pooped!
Reddit user Slayer128 looks like it took a hit of something, which would totally explain why he looks like he just won the lottery. Notice how happy he looks even though his little nose is frozen. Yup! This puppy is a fan of winter.
Flickr user Elizabeth Bouras watched as her cat Jonesy explored the balcony, but she wasn't prepared to find how the cat reacted to the snow. At first it seemed curious. Then it seemed to jump frantically as if trying to get away from the snow fast.
Reddit user rcinferno timed this shot perfectly. He also claimed that his dog, Bruno, loves ice cubes, which might explain why his mouth was open and ready to receive that icy projectile. He looks so goofy and cute!
Reddit user's please_agree was startled to find that his cat's black hairs all had frosted tips. From the expression on her face, it wants to go back inside where it's warm.
"Hey daddy, look! Frostbite!" Reddit user Sir Waffles McFluffybutt's dog probably doesn't get how his owner could have neglected to tell him about snow until now. It's freaking awesome. Just look at him jump up all excited.
Fortunately, this isn't Reddit user Dax268's cat, but we wouldn't want to be the owner either. It looks pawsitively peeved about having been dragged out on a chilly winter day to experience snow.
He's like, "What did I just experience out there?" It looks stunned but in a good way. Also, we love his green sweater.
Reddit user Mexispan's pooch is looking at the snow like "What the heck is this?" The dog's probably hoping that his owner doesn't blame him for all this white mess someone spilled on the ground.
Just look at the expression on this one's face. He's elated that he managed to break out of his snowy prison.
Reddit user ArtBran was eager to take his cat out for its first snow experience, but it definitely didn't go well.
It decided to go into some funky version of a spin cycle to either get rid of the snow from its fur, or to just roll around in the snow some more.
Reddit user Zebrahed gave her black dog his first taste of snow, and it looks like it has been a huge letdown. "Oh mama, why is this white stuff so darn cold?"
You wouldn't know it by looking at his seemingly permanent "whatever" face, but he loves the snow. Then again, he probably does the same thing in the summer when the ground is muddy.
It seems as if it mistook the snow for a face mask and dug his entire head into a pile of snow. Sorry, pup! But those wrinkles are a permanent part of you. That mask is only going to make your face feel cooler, not younger. But don't pout. You're still cute.
Reddit user's EYCI left her cat out in the snow because she wanted to experience the winter. But there was snow way he was going to stay there for very long. "Yo, mom! MOM! Opened the window, it's too cold out here."
Reddit user's Mckenzinator has a Siberian Husky named Mylo, who shortly before his first birthday, was allowed to go out and play in the snow. But he seemed way more interested in playing fetch with his owner.
Instagram's Kristelvanhemert's ginger cat is on the fence, or in this case, the cat door about the whole thing. It doesn't know if it should run out there and explore, or stay indoors and relax next to the fireplace.
