Pet of the Month: Chloë, 13-year-old Maltese mix, In Need of Tumor Removal Surgery

ICanHasCheezburger? is proud to present and partner with The Waggle Foundation, in a Pet of the Month initiative

Each month, we will be featuring a pet in critical need and needs financial help to survive. We will share their story, their adorable photos, and their journey with the help of unbelievably kind strangers. 

The Waggle Foundation is a unique crowd-funding platform. Their mission is to help reduce economic euthanasia in pets. Unfortunately, because of financial struggles families cannot afford to help their beloved pets. That is where the Waggle Foundation steps in. They strive to help each and every pet in need, and just as their motto says "No pet parent should lose their best friend because of financial hardship."

And we couldn't agree more.

100% of donations to pets on the Waggle crowdfunding platform go directly to the veterinary providers administering care and never to the pet owners. This way, Waggle provides the safety and security for all donors in a way that other crowdfunding platforms cannot guarantee, and is reassured that the pet gets the help it needs.

And with that, we would like to present August's Pet of The Month: (Drumroll Please!) 

Chloë!

Meet The Rare Golden Possums Of Australia

In 2018, The Boronia Veterinary Clinic in Australia announced on Facebook about a very rare and special guest at their clinic- a rescued brushtail possum with an incredible orange-yellow coat, often referred to as "Golden possums".  

 The real-life Pikachu was sadly found lying on the ground by a concerned rescuer when he was just five months old, after falling from her mom's back. After spending a night at Boronia Veterinary Clinic, she was placed with a wildlife carer.

Brushtail possums are usually a grayish color, but little Pikachu has a genetic mutation that means she lacks melanin. 

Turns out, those unusual colors may look beautiful to us but are actually posing a significant danger to the animal in the wild: "One of the issues with unusual colors, particularly if they are pale, is that this is a nocturnal animal and if they are pale, they are obvious to predators like an owl,"  Dr. Kath Handasyde from Melbourne University's School of Biosciences told Business Insider.

But this adorable possum is not the only one in Australia. There are more little pockets of them around Melbourne, but their location is kept secret by the volunteers in order to keep them safe.

A Cross Eyed Cat Named Belarus Fund Raises Thousands Of Dollars For Animal Charities With His Goofy Look

All cats are adorable but Belarus, a cross-eyed cat from San Francisco, is definitely one of the cutest ones we have ever seen. 

His crossed eyes, caused by a rare condition called strabismus, emphasize his adorable and playful nature and makes him even cuter, leaving him with a permanently confused expression. This fluffy and cheerful boy has already amassed more than 250k followers on Instagram, all thanks to his owner, Rachel, who adopted him almost two years ago from a local shelter: 'When I first saw him, I just thought he was the most hilariously adorable cat ever. I had never really been a cat person before, but thought he would be the perfect cat', she told the Daily Mail. "I sent his adoption picture to my family and their reactions were quite similar. 'They told me you have to go see him, so I did. 'His favorite hobbies include juggling, waiting for his food machine and looking in two directions at once.' 

Ever since the adoption, Rachel and Belarus are supporting the shelter he came from, as well as other animal charities. 

The "marketing" gimmick is using Belarus's famous face on different clothing items and selling them for charity purposes on his dedicated online store. Together, they have raised already  $12,000 and counting.

Thank you, Belarus, for being that adorably wonderful.
