Sakura (@kawauso_sakura) is a one-year old otter, and it's pretty fair to say that she is the lead star of an otter popularity boom on Japanese social media that may have resulted in at least one pet cafe that lets you cuddle with otters. Like many otters, Sakura is rather playful, but since she's still young, she has yet to move on from a certain sleeping habit she has. According to her Twitter account, she can't quite accept her bedtime without having something to cuddle up tightly with--namely this stuffed piggy doll!

The ease with which she falls asleep after getting in a good hug is almost impossibly heartwarming. If you want to to see more of her adorable antics (and very distinguished squealing), make sure and check out her Twitter account!
