Dog That Spent Year And A Half Chained Up Gets Rescued (Viral Thread)

Bring the tissues, everyone, because this one is a tearjerker. Meet Baldr. This poor pup has spent the first year and a half of his life chained up before he got rescued. He never even had a name, and it has left him afraid of trusting people. Thankfully though, his life changed when imgur user, poorschmuck, opened up their hearts and took him in. 

Baldr is now the happiest he's ever been. He's found his forever home, and he knows it. In this home, he will get nothing but love, and as poorschmuck said: he's "[n]ever going to see a chain again." And nothing could make us happier. 

If you have your own heartwarming pet stories, come share them in our Facebook community: ICanHas Storytime.

Nervous Kitty Re-Homed 5 Times Finally Finds Forever Home (Viral Thread)

Pets with behavioral issues are never easy to take care of, but that doesn't mean they don't deserve the most amazing forever home. What happens though, when you find out that the pet's behavioral issues most likely stemmed from fear rather than anything else? You get the story of Cheddar Kevin the cat.

bythezu, on imgur, shared their kitty's story, and it first broke our hear then put it right back together. Because this poor kitty has been re-homed 5 times since he would pee everywhere. Yet, when he got to bythezu home, he didn't have an issue. It seems that the reason is that the poor guy kept being put into busy home which were simply too scary for him

He's happy now though, and will be happy for the rest of his life, and that's all that matters. If you have your own heartwarming pet stories, come share them in our Facebook community: ICanHas Storytime.

We saw his little face on the ad, called... and they basically told us he would pee on everything we owned... We've had him almost 3 weeks now, and would you believe it not a single incident outside the litter box!! He was scared at first of course but he warmed up quick and is seriously the sweetest boy.-bythez'

Informative Guide To Adopting A Cat (Tumblr Thread)

If you're anything like I was before I adopted a cat, you know three things: you loves cats, you want a cat, and you don't know the first thing about taking care of them. That shouldn't stop you from adopting a cat, not if you want to give it love and cuddles and the best life it can have.

Of course, you can always go on the internet and look for information about raising cats, that's what I did, but the information is scattered, and it can be hard to filter through what you really need to know and what you don't. Thankfully, carnegiemuseumnaturalhistory on tumblr decided to collect all the information that you need and put it in one place, creating the ultimate guide to cat adoption that will answer most, if not all, of your questions and make the process of getting a cat a much less scary one.

a tumblr thread guide about adopting cats thumbnail includes a picture of a sleeping kitten 'Font - Cat Adoption Guide Adding a new feline friend to your household is a process that can be both exciting and scary, especially for first-time cat owners and even the cats themselves. With so many things to consider, it can feel as though a million things could go wrong. Thankfully, there are many things you can do to make the transition as smooth as possible!'

When you think about rescuing an animal, you probably think of a cat or a dog, maybe a bird or something, but almost definitely not a beaver. And yet, this rescued beaver is one of the most adorable strange adopted animals that we have ever seen. 

He loves cuddling, he loves kayaking, he enjoys stealing his mom's rug 4 times a night, and he may or may not have tried to build a dam on top of his mom's head. Also, we want him. He's too cute for this world. And honestly, we think this adorable beaver is ready to go out on his own and conquer the world in the wild, he's just... trying to figure out how to take the couch with him.

It started with a woman taking this adorable obese doggo into her home, wanting to give her a chance and take care of her, help her lose weight and get healthier. And after a year and a half as well as one of the most successful pet weight loss journeys we've ever seen, the story ended with the same amazing woman being won over and adopting the pup.

Never have you seen a dog happier to do the most basic dog things - since because of her weight, she couldn't even scratch her own ear before. She's now the happiest doggo, and we can't help but be happy watching her jump around in the new forever home

Tumblr Thread: Feral Cat Invited Herself In And Never Left

Cats, being relatives of some of the most dangerous creatures on the planet, had to have gotten to the point of being house kitties somehow. Self-domestication seems to have been the way they did it- coming in and deciding that it's better to get pampered by these puny humans than to go through the hardships outside alone. And apparently, this act of domesticating oneself is not a thing of the past.

Everyone, say hi to Ghost, the cat who was born into a feral cat colony, walked into tchaikovsgay's life (and house) one day and simply never left. She's adorable, she had the cutest toof, she loves belly rubs, and we are probably almost as happy as she is for having found her forever home. 

tumblr thread about a cat domesticating herself thumbnail includes two pictures including one of a grey cat snuggling on a person and another of a grey cat bleping 'Organism - tchaikovsgay Follow can y'all believe my cat domesticated herself? how wild is that. she was born in a feral cat colony and was like “fuck this shit, I want to be pampered", invited herself inside and never left. now she gets chicken stuck to her lips and screams till I give her belly scratchies'

Warm Stories Of Cats Adopting Humans

Most times, you decide you're ready for a pet and that it's time to go out and finally get one. You prepare, you think of what you want, you look at pictures and learn, and then you hope that the one you choose will be happy to be with you. But other times... you don't get to choose. Sometimes, it's the pets that choose you

The little stories you're about to read are so heartwarming they'll make you melt. Thank you to imgur user Rammsteinstochter for collecting them. "Heartless" and "unfeeling" cats choosing the humans that they want to keep for themselves. "This one," the cats say. "I think this one is cute enough... and will give me food."

If you have any heart-meltingly cute stories of your own to share, come tell us about them in our Facebook group: ICanHas Storytime.

stories of cats choosing humans thumbnail includes two stories including one of a cat next to a small toy home and another of a cat drinking milk 'Cat - "This feral cat decided to live with us, so I built her a house." "This random cat came in when I was just getting inside the house, following me up to my apartment. I gave her some milk and now she won't leave. I guess she's my cat now."'

Terrified Kitten Falls In Love With New Adoptive Family (Viral Thread)

Special needs cats are always a challenge to take care of. But for beautiful and terrified cats like Kyrie, finding a forever home is an extra challenge. As adrianontherocks, feline behaviorist imgur user, explains: a lot of times, with pretty cats such as these, the adopters will take them without being ready for the challenges ahead and return them not a month later. 

Luckily, Kyrie found the forever home he deserves. Not only that but ended up totally falling in love with his new adoptive family, and he even became best friends with the family dog! No ending could have been better, and we are overjoyed to hear about it and are thankful to adrianontherocks for not only taking care of Kyrie but also sharing his story!

viral imgur thread about a cat with behavioral issues getting adopted thumbnail includes two pictures including a kitten and another of a cat and a dog cuddling '"Gorgeous cats like Kyrie get a LOT of attention and people tend to... say they’re okay with the behavior problems and then return the cat a week later because they aren’t perfect... Well, we hit the jackpot for Kyrie." - adrianontherocks'

Previously Abused Dog Saves New Owner, Dragging Her Away From Oncoming Car

Meet Sorsha, a hero that we are all going to be celebrating. She's a rescued dog who was cruelly shot by her previous owner, got adopted into the most loving forever home and, later in life, turned into a guide dog. Then, she outdid even herself by becoming an actual hero and saving her owner's life. 

After her owner fell on an icy road, the amazing dog ran in front of an oncoming car, grabbed her leash in her mouth and physically dragged her owner away from the path of the car, having never been trained for it.

We would like to thank Melissa Amos, one of ICanHasCheezburger's animal loving users for sharing her and Sorsha's stories with us. Continue reading her incredibly story and giving love to Sorsha below, and if you have your own stories to share, come tell us about them in our Facebook group: ICanHas Storytime.
