How animals are reacting to Brexit

Sadness in their eyes?

So. That was a weird night, wasn’t it?

Whatever your feelings on the EU referendum result, this is a highly emotional time for everyone on our little island, whether you’ve got two legs or four.

#Dogsatpollingstations was cute, but a dog is forever, not just for voting day. Following a monumental day in UK politics, we turn to our favourite, furry friends all over the world to see how they’re taking the Brexit news.

A cat has decided to take over as Prime Minister (and his name is Larry)

Many of our animal friends are sleeping off a late night of watching the results unfold

That brexit result is so disappointing! Goodbye english friends… I hope at least this will become a bank holiday! 👋🙀👋 #WhatAEuroMess #WhatIfTheyWinTheUefaEuro2016? •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Le résultat du brexit est vraiment décevant! Aurevoir amis anglais… J’espère qu’au moins ça vous fera un jour férié de plus!

But some can’t sleep – they’re pondering what this change will mean for them

Will all German shepherds and French bulldogs living in the UK be sent packing?


Some animals just want to talk about something else for a little while

But some are hopeful for the future

Happy face 😍👍🏼 #remain #strongertogether #eureferendum #friends #neighbours #eu #imIN
