For us, adoption day is always a happy day. We get to pick up our favorite little furball and take them to their new forever home where they'll be loved and cherished for the rest of their lives. But what does adoption look like through the eyes of the kitty itself, especially when it's an older kitty who has been in the shelter for a while, waiting for its new family? Allow Earnie - our resident senior cat - to show you. 

All of our dedicated readers have already heard of Meowmoirs, but for those of you who are new: Meowmoirs is a diary written by our resident senior cat who's name is Earnie. He goes through endless intense and world-changing adventures, writing about a new one every single week. Of course, his whole adventure starts with his adoption day. If you wanna read more of his thoughts about it, his reactions to the new home and his new family, read the full entry right here

Smiling Fox Cub Gets Adopted And Befriends Two Dogs After Its Brother Was Run Over

What started off tragic ended up leading to a heartwarming friendship between a fox and two doggos.

O'Leary, having grown attached to the beautiful smiling foxes, decided to adopt the 2-week-old fox who lost her brother into her own little family, and in an incredible turn of events, she "watched in awe as the creature befriended her pug and springer spaniel puppy."

Dog That Hated Adopted Puppy At First Now Loves Her (Viral Thread)

It's always a worry - whether the new pet you bring home will get along with the one that you already have. We hope for the best, but when it doesn't go the way we hope, we find ourselves a little devastated. Imgur user monachopsisss experienced that same fear with their 2-year-old lab and the new puppy that they adopted and shared it in this imgur thread

But, the story of these two doggos is one that brings hope. Just because your adopted pet doesn't immediately get along with the pet you have, doesn't mean that they never will. It'll take time, but with enough love and care all around, they will most likely start getting along just like these two beauties. 

viral imgur thread about a dog who hated the new adopted puppy at first then grew to love it thumbnail includes two pictures of a Labrador and a Labrador puppy '"we got a puppy a month ago, and our two year old lab HATED her. little pup wanted to be best friends and couldn’t understand what she did wrong. last week, big pup finally gave her a chance" - monachopsisss'

Tumblr Thread: Dog Previously Mistreated For Barking Learns To Bork Again

Every adopted pet has a past- a story that we don't know and wish we did. Normally, we only know a little bit. And with Ezri, what we know is enough to break our hearts and then melt our hearts. 

The tumblr user fire-is-her-water shared the story of their adopted doggo. The little they know of Ezri's past is that Ezri used to be abused as well as mistreated every time she barked. Now, in the hands of fire-is-her-water, in a loving home, it was time for Ezri to relearn how to bark again. And through months of work and many, many treats, she let her voice be heard again. 

Turns out, Ezri is a pupper that doesn't actually bark much - she borks. And the video of it will make your heart absolutely burst. 

Thank you to fire-is-her-water for being a totally amazing doggo parent and for giving this amazing dog the home and love that she deserves

tumblr thread about an abused dog getting adopted and learning to bark again thumbnail includes a picture of a dog '"When I got her, she’d been abused and would cower and pee at almost everything, and had been mistreated when she’d barked, so she never would. I had to re-teach her to bark by gathering her whole human pack and having everyone bark and howl and feed her treats and pet her till she got excited enough to join in."'

Watching movies has become a daily activity in the house of this adorable chatty adopted senior cat. The cat, Ella, specifically seems to have fallen in love with one movie - "The Grinch". 

There was one night, tell the adoptive cat mom in the video, that Ella was screaming without pause, and putting on the movie was "the only thing that made her calm down." She talks about how Ella comes to get her adoptive parents and leads them to the couch, waiting for the movie to be put on. 

She will walk with the animals on the screen, watch the movies that she loves the most, and enjoy the loading screen almost as much as she enjoys the actual movie. We are totally in love with this cat, and you will 100% be too.

Tumblr Thread: Saving And Adopting A Helpless Stray Kitten

All it takes is a little kindness to change an animal's life. This heartwarming tumblr thread proves just that. This tiny kitten, later named Nux, was found at the bottom of violetohara's stairs, and though it was a bit hard to catch the kitten at first, violetohara immediately knew that if they catch the little thing, they'll adopt her right away.

And that's exactly what happened. The kitten was sick, had burrs and sticks in her fur and was clearly unwell, but all it took is a visit to the vet and one day in her new forever home for her to start purring and become of of the cutest kittens in the whole world. Nux is still doing great, of course, because with a forever home as loving as this, who wouldn't?

tumblr thread about a stray kitten getting rescued thumbnail includes two pictures including of a stray scared kitten and another of the same kitten looking happy 'Skin - What a difference a day makes! Took this little guy to the vet, got the fleas and dirt washed off him, got some antibiotics for a slight cold, but he is otherwise fine. Kneading and purring up a storm, eating a lot and being heart-crushingly adorable.'

Imgur User Adopts Senior Blind Kitty, Shares Heartwarming Story

Well, according to Imgur user, daianaaaa, this beautiful senior kitty adopted her, not the other way around. And sometimes, it is the pets who decide who their human will be, and when you've been chosen, it's the best feeling in the world. To be chosen is an honor. 

Daianaaaa was chosen by Molly. A 20-year-old stray who also happens to be blind. Our hearts feel so warm knowing there are people out there who see older animals in need of some love and providing it for them. 

If you're considering getting a pet, please consider adopting instead of shopping. The animals know you've rescued them, they just do and you can feel their gratefulness for it. 

Thank you, daianaaaa, for giving Molly a loving forever home!

Feisty Adopted Kitten Loves Going To Work With Her Human (Viral Thread)

Meet Pepperoni, the most adorable tiny feisty kitten who loves biting people, taking naps in silly places, car rides, and chilling at work with her human.

Peppi's owner found her under a dumpster a couple months ago when she was only 4-5 weeks old and weighed less than a pound and absolutely fell in love with her and adopted her. And seeing this little girl, we totally understand that love. In a viral thread on imgur, anzinipanini talks about her journey with this kitten, and we only continue to fall in love with her. 

And though anzinipanini begins her thread with "[t]his post isn't super important," we and other users totally disagree. This post and Pepperoni are extremely, extremely important.

Cat people and dog people both love their pets, whether they were bought or whether they were rescued from inside of a car engine.

Tumblr Thread: Cat Adopts Lynx Cub And Raises It Alongside Her Kitten

This family may be a little unique, but they sure are loving. A baby lynx abandoned by its mother for being the runt of the litter was brought into the care of a domesticated cat who had just given birth to a kitten of her own, and the cat quickly adopted the lynx as her own. A cat is a cat right? All big cats act like little cats at the end of the day.

This tumblr thread stoke the hearts of everyone, and it is one of our favorites as well, because though the family may be a little strange, their story is one of acceptance, and it is so heartwarming. Also, the domesticated cat can rest assured that her large, fierce daughter will protect her from everything, and that's a wonderful bonus.

To save the cub's life, a worker brought a domesticated cat that had recently given birth to kittens. As anticipated, the cat accepted the lynx as her own kitten and began nursing her.' as well as a kitten and a lynx nuzzling 'ALSO the mom cat raised the lynx baby'

Rufus's story is one of incredibly kind people, a strong dog never willing to give up, and just a little hint of luck. 

What started with Lauren Conley losing her dear dog last Memorial Day ended with her saving the life of another dog - one who was very much in need of love. Rufus, a poorly senior dog was brought to a shelter by his previous owners to be euthanized, but thankfully, he was sent to a foster home instead. He was given six months to live. Luckily, he found his way into Lauren's arms, and opening her heart and home to this boy, she gave him all her love and helped him in every way that she could. And now, Rufus is finally getting better!

As she tells Cheezburger: "[W]e are dedicated to making every day he has left his birthday, Christmas, and Thanksgiving rolled into one!"

Curious User Finds Out The Pawdorable History Of Their Adopted Puppy

When we adopt a pet - young or old - and don't know their story, we can't help but wonder about it. I can say personally that I've always wondered if my little kitten's ears look funny and different because something bit her or if it's just genetic. There's no way for me to know, and the curiosity has stayed all the years that I've had her. 

Sometimes though, you get lucky and find out exactly where they're from. Like this story that went viral on imgur. This curious imgur user managed to discover his little puppy's background, and it warmed the hearts of tens of thousands because it is one of the most wholesome, heartwarming stories possible. 

From adorable pupper to "weird looking leggy goober", this is the history of Jupiter. 

viral story about an imgur user finding out the history of their adopted puppy thumbnail includes two pictures including a puppy sitting on a vet's table 'I decided to look up the rescue he came from... and stumbled upon these photos of his mama!!' and a mom dog with her litter 'The dark brown one all the way on the right is Jupiter'
