Is there anything more relaxing than someone playing with your hair and giving you a scalp massage? I think not.

And, by the looks of it, two pet otters named Kotaro and Hana seem to agree with me wholeheartedly.

In an adorable video, the two cute animals can’t keep their eyes open while their human caretaker slowly brushes their fur with a comb.

You can see all the adorableness in action for yourself. Just try not to squeal.

Okay, it’s fine to squeal… because it’s almost impossible not to, right? Soooooo freakin cute!

These two, delightful furballs live in Japan, where their main jobs including being generally adorable and creating wildly popular YouTube videos.

They’ve even got a few tricks up their furry sleeves.

How cute is that little high-five?!

They’re even super cute while they eat.

And they have great manners — watch as Hana shares food with Kotaro!

And just watch their reactions when their human puts on a grooming glove:

Kotara and Hana are actually Asian small-clawed otters, which are the smallest of all the otter species. They’re native to Asia and they typically live in marshes, rivers and other bodies of water.

If you’re in need of any more cuteness, their YouTube channel is a great place to spend a few hours — you’ll feel cheery in no time just watching these two and their antics!

Would you ever consider keeping an otter for a pet? How about some other super unique animal?
