Every day here at What’s Trending we try to bring you stories that matter. Stories about the most meaningful news makers, the greatest of human innovation, and most importantly, when an animal does something unbelievably cute, you better believe we’re all over that beat. Case in point, how could we, the important journos of the world, ignore this cute little video of a sweet little seal following around a butterfly? All the news that’s hit to hit the “publish” button on, we tell ya! Check out this video, taken by Oregon Zoo dive safety officer Micah Reese. Witness! The adorableness!

Yes, it is a tale as old as time, watching this cute little seal give chase to the butterfly. Does the seal even know there’s a pane of glass between him and the cute little winged creature of his chase giving dreams? Maybe he does, and maybe he doesn’t. However, we do know one thing: we love them both and the presence of them in each other’s gaze.

This has been a tough week for seals overall. I mean, have you seen that video of the cat slapping the seal so hard it rolled over on its little seal belly? I mean, we did, and folks — we were not fond of such actions towards our blubbery animal friend. Or have you seen the video of the seal jumping into the boat to escape a killer whale? Folks, seals are our animal friends and deserve our love. Plus, the image of seals hasn’t been the best as of late. I mean, have you seen the video of the seal pulling the little girl into the water? Folks, seals need our help.

What do you think of the video of the seal and the butterfly? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
