Taking Care Of And Getting 7 Wolfhound Cross Puppies Adopted

Raising puppies is not an easy task. Raising puppies with a bad history is even harder. But raising seven of them? Now, that's something to be thankful for. Imgur user RareWolf3 shared their story of doing just that - raising seven wolfhound cross puppies who were dumped in a bush, emaciated and scared.

All seven of the puppies have since been adopted and taken into loving forever homes, one of them even being adopted by RareWolf3 themselves. looking back on their pictures when they were babies brings us so much joy, and knowing that they're living good lives now is even better, and we are indeed really thankful.

Australian Dentist Creates First Prosthetic Foot For Koala

This handsome Koala certainly lives up to his name -- Triumph. Meet the adorable koala Triumph, who was born with a foot missing. Triumph was taken into care back in 2017 after being spotted with his dying mother in New South Wales. 

Vets soon realized Triumph was missing a limp, due to an inexplicable birth defect. They could also tell that his missing limp would sometimes cause him pain. His rescuer and vet nurse, Marley Christian, from Friends of Koala, began to dress Triumph's stump in dolls' socks and little booties. They have discovered that when doing so, it helped relieve some of the sensitivity Triumph was feeling. 

Marley Christian searched the globe for someone to make a prosthetic, unfortunately, no one was willing to take on the task. "We were told it had not been done and it could not be done," Marley Christian told ABC

An American company that specialized in animal prosthetics decided to take Triumph's case, but sadly, they could not manufacture a design that would comfortably stay on. It wasn't until Marley Christian mentioned Triumph's case in passing to an Australian dentist, Lismore dental prosthetist Jon Doulman, who then volunteered to help build Triumph a prosthetic foot himself. 

And he succeeded.

Be still our beating hearts! Don't think we've ever come across a smiling squirrel before! In the past, we have come across a rescue squirrel who holds a miniature teddy bear, however! This lovely critter is named Claudia and she is the most thankful squirrel we've ever come across. It's almost as if she knows she's been rescued and is overwhelmingly grateful to have been rescued and to still be alive. 

GeoBeats Animals, a US-based media company, got to hear Claudia's story and it's a powerful one: 

"In July of 2017, I received a phone call from another wildlife rehabilitator, who had a lot of animals in her care. At that time, she had a blind squirrel and she was a little overwhelmed.  She sent this little squirrel down to me. And I saw the most frightened animal I've ever seen in my entire life. We just tried to keep her quiet and keep her calm. And on the fifth day, she was comfortable enough with me that she would sleep upside down in my hands. 

We took her to a veterinary ophthalmologist shortly after she arrived. And they confirmed that she has glaucoma. She's blind in both eyes. She takes medication as well as getting a CBD-infused yogurt ball. She has neurological problems. She can sometimes get seizures. But she's happy here. She likes to hang upside down from her cage sometimes. 

We discovered if you scratch her in the right places, behind her ear or on the back of her head, or on the top of her head, she will smile for you. So we have this wonderful smiling squirrel who loves attention.  She's very opinionated. She sometimes bites with no warning. She's picky about what she eats and when she's going to eat it. She can be very affectionate. She can change your mind in 10 seconds. She's really, really a cool squirrel to know.  So we call her HRH Claudia. Her Royal Highness Claudia, and we give her whatever she wants whenever she wants it. And she's very, very loved. Hopefully, we can keep her a happy, healthy girl for a good long time."

If your eyes didn't get all misty reading that lovely short, then we don't know how to help you. We wish Claudia a long, happy, and healthy life! Follow Her Royal Highness Claudia on Instagram!

Puppy Scared Of Being Returned To Shelter Again Finds Forever Home (Viral Thread)

'Spider Cat' Walks Up A Wall Effortlessly And Goes Viral

All cats love climbing, but this three-year-old British shorthair has full-on mastered it. After a video of her climbing a wall effortlessly went viral in China, she dubbed the 'spider-cat', and her purrfessional climbing skills took over everyone's hearts. 

The owner of Qiqi, Ms Luo, a high school teacher, told MailOnline that her cat has always loved climbing and enjoys spending her days leaping up and down from supposedly unreachable places. "Qiqi loves climbing the walls, the doors. Wherever is the highest, she would try to get up there," Ms Luo explained.

In the beginning, Ms Luo would watch Qiqi every single time she climbed, worried that she would fall and hurt herself, but Qiqi never disappointed, continuously impressing her owner, and now us, with her amazing climbing skills. Ms Luo had been capturing videos like that and sharing them on Douyin, one of them going incredibly viral. 

Millions of viewers on social media were impressed with the little spider kitty, and we are part of them now. For more spider cats being totally impressive weirdos, click right here.
