Bring up the idea of cuddling in a group of friends and you're bound to instigate a heated discussion (read: battle to the death) about the pros and cons.
Personally, I love it, but there are others who can't stand someone breathing down their neck. The intimacy is real when you're locked in an embrace.
But there is one thing we can all agree on: when animals cuddle or spoon, there's no question — it's basically the cutest thing ever. If you don't believe me, get ready to submit, because these 22 spooning animals will make you so excited about the upcoming chillier months, when all you want to do is keep warm.
