Redditor Writes Heartbreaking Prompt About Dogs In The Afterlife

Oh, the feels. And this time, it's pretty heavy. There must be someone chopping up endless onions to prepare for some onion-chopping competition out there because the tears are here and they won't stop flowing. 

It's so hard for us to let go of our pets, it always hurts and the pain never actually leaves us, we just learn how to live with it over time. In a beautiful, and ultra-heartbreaking writing prompt, one Redditor brought the feels and brought them hard. The original question that prompted the writing prompt was posted by Redditor u/Epidexipteryx, and was, "When a beloved dog passes in the hereafter, they are given a choice. They can cross the Rainbow Bridge and await for their owners, or join the Sleepless Watch and defend the world from evil spirits."

Redditor, u/Euthenios, wrote this marvelous masterpiece below. Just a little warning, perhaps have a tissue or two beside you in preparation.

Three Months After State-Wide Rescue Mission, Orphaned Baby Bat Released

Three months ago, in an event that puzzled wildlife carers, hundreds of bat pups were abandoned by their mothers at the Rockhampton Botanical Gardens. The number of bats that needed help was so massive, it overwhelmed local volunteers. It ended up taking three three groups from Brisbane and one from Townsville getting together to rescue all of these bats. 

Today, according to ABC News, "[m]ore than 70 baby black bats on the brink of starvation... are now being released into the wild after carer groups from across Queensland united in their rescue."

Read more of the story and check out pics of the adorable bats below.

Russian man: My fish

Fox: OUR Fish

And the fox steals it in the most obvious way that leaves us laughing at this situation! in Labytnangi, Russia, a man was fishing when a beautiful and adorable arctic fox decided to show up and steal whatever catch there might be. The Russian man tried to scare off the baby fox, but this fox was persistent! And that persistence paid off because, in the end, the fox did indeed get the fish! Of course, it was the fisherman who gave the fox the fish in the end, but let this be a lesson to all of us -- never give up!

Tumblr Dives Into European Folklore About Evil Whales (Thread)

Whale, whale, whale, if it isn't another thread viral animal thread... we love those! It all started with a viral tweet from Twitter user Mx. Leah Velleman, in which they brought up the fact that Europeans avoid using the word "bear" in fear of summoning them. Instead, they call them "brown one" or "honey-eater." Pretty interesting right? And we thought we were superstitious!

Turns out, there's an even more wild European theory about evil whales, from Iceland. If this isn't already fascinating to you, we're not quite sure how to help you because, friends, this is about as cool as it gets. Get yourself ready to go deep diving into the depths of the unknown

Cats Choosing Pizza As Their Ultimate Love

Whoever said cats can't love has never seen a cat sit on a pizza box. It is so very clear that pizza is their ultimate love. it's warm, it smells delicious, and it's a box - it's the combination of all of our cats dreams. Suddenly, they'll be giving you puppy eyes, trying to convince you to give them a slice of the deliciousness, or they'll be trying to scratch your eyes out because of your futile attempts to get them off their delicious heater

I mean, we can't even question their love for it, considering how much we love pizza too, so... get off, you chaotic little hooligan, this pizza is mine. And thank you to r/CatsOnPizza for providing this delicious and mildly strange cat material.

Tumblr Thread: Cockatoo Rocking Out To Metal Music

Some animals like music, that's something that we've noticed. Cats falling asleep when music is playing, doggos head-bopping to music, but a cockatoo? We have yet to see something like that. And this cockatoo specifically might be the most punk rock, coolest cockatoo ever. He's has a haircut cooler than yours, he's more intimidating than any of us by far, and his sense of rhythm is superior to all of us

Now, there's speculation about whether this is real or if the music was added after, but considering the fact that cockatoos are knows for their drumming skills in the wild, performing elaborate drumming patterns when trying to attract females, odds are that this is very real. And this birb is amazing

Pets Showing Love In Strange But Wholesome Ways

There have been times before where we've been asked, by people who don't have pets: "how do you know that they love you back and don't only love the food you give them?"

It always makes us happy to see cats and dogs hanging out together, considering how different they are. So, when they get along, it's always quite special. But these two huge huskies have taken their awwdorable friendship to a whole other level, surrounding the cat and guarding it. From what? We're not sure. But we appreciate the effort anyway. The cat is definitely not complaining either. 

We're just happy knowing that these guys are enjoying each other's company and that they have each other's backs. Well, at least the dogs have the cat's back. But we would like to believe that the cat would very fiercely glare at anyone who dared approach its guard doggos. 

Can't get enough of ICanHasCheezburger? Then you're in luck because we're now on Instagram!
