There's something so fun about bubbles. Those squishy, magical balls come floating down just asking to be chased ... and popped!

Little kids, of course, can't get enough of them. But there are plenty of four-legged creatures that are mesmerized by bubbles, too. Here's a look at all sorts of dogs, cats and other critters playing, chasing and being utterly intrigued by these drifting balls of air.

Take these fluffball kitties, for example. They're quite adept at catching the mysterious floaters!
