We searched through the most liked cat pictures on the subreddit r/cats, this week, and we decided to share them all with you!

The pictures all have one thing in common, and that is, of course, cats. However, that's where the similarities end. 

There are images of glow-ups, hilarious cats being hilarious, adorable-ness (naturally), and mourning and loss. We wanted to take a moment to appreciate the beauty of all these cats and remember those who have recently left us, they may be gone but never forgotten.

National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month: Dogs in Denver Enjoyed Free Makeovers

In celebration of National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and some news of their own, Rover treated a group of lucky pups from Maxfund, an animal adoption center in Denver, to stylish free makeovers — complete with before-and-after glamour shots taken by Wag Your Tail Photography

The generous gesture was part of Rover's celebration of adding new grooming services to their website. The new service allows Pet owners to skip the stressful process of hauling their stressed pet to the groomers, and instead opt for a professional to come to their home, set up their pop-up salon and clean up any mess before they leave – all in a space where a pet feels safe. All of Rover's grooming options include a cut, bath, brush out, ear cleaning, nail trimming, and gland expression. Prices for the service vary based on the pet's breed and size.

Man Moves Into Animal Shelter To Help Dog Get Adopted

Scott Poore, a Kansas City animal advocate, has moved into an animal shelter, Great Plains SPCA, where a three-year-old terrier mix named Queen has been for more than 400 days. 

Queen was found in the shelter near his home by animal rescue officers. She was found living behind a dumpster and had medical issues that prevented her from being adopted straight away. Poore could come visit Queen every day for the past year and it broke his heart that this loving pup hasn't found her forever home. 

He wanted to come up with a creative way to get people to notice Queen and his solution? To move out of his house and into hers, until she finds her forever home. 

Tam Singer, the Great Plains SPCA CEO, was asked to document the experience by Poore. And as wild as the idea sounds, Singer was more than willing to help out and called the idea "fantastic."

Singer told Yahoo Lifestyle, "He has the ability to make individual dogs matter. He's helped so many of our dogs and dogs all over Kansas, More than anything, it highlights not only the plight of Queen but so many other dogs. It's magnificent."

This New 'Grown-Ass Adult' Dog Adoption Campaign Is Straight Fire

It's easy to convince people to adopt a puppy, like adopting people, people mostly want babies. However, puppies are the first to go at the shelters and rescues, and the poor adult and senior dogs are left there. And those dogs have just as much love inside. 

Animal Protective Association of Missouri (APA) had just come out with a recent, and brilliant, ad campaign. The posters and the hashtags #grownassadult and #adoptadult is educating people about the many advantages of adopting grown-up dogs! 

And there are so many advantages! If you're thinking about adopting a dog, we hope this campaign sticks with you and you consider adopting an adult.

"Get a dog who gets you. Adopt adult."
