Well met, good Sparklers! Today is William Shakespeare’s birthday—the Bard is now 450-years-young. We could think of no better way to celebrate this milestone than by casting some painfully adorable animals in Shakespeare’s best roles. Are you ready for the onslaught of literary cuteness that is to come? You better be, because even Shakespeare himself would only be able to say “d’awww” in the face of these sweeties. Jump in, if you dare!
