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.

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!

Cat Medley: Cuteness Galore, Funnies, Rescues And Glow Ups

Cats, cats, cats. All-day and all night it's always about cats when it comes down to it. Not that we mind in the slightly, oh no, in fact, we purrfer it that way. 

Cats are incredible animals. They bring us so much laughter, joy, comfort, anything you can think of -- they can bring it. Except for money, they live rent-free and their vet bills are enormous. However, putting that aside, they really provide it all. Except, again, scratch-free furniture. You should know if you're thinking to get a cat to not care about your furniture at all. And that's OK because after that cat is in your life, you won't care so much about the corners of the couch. What matters is your cat. 

We love our little destructive felines so much, and once a week, we like to honor all cats doing cat things. Just for the heck of it.

Australian Dentist Creates First Prosthetic Foot For Koala

This handsome Koala certainly lives up to his name -- Triumph. Meet the adorable koala Triumph, who was born with a foot missing. Triumph was taken into care back in 2017 after being spotted with his dying mother in New South Wales. 

Vets soon realized Triumph was missing a limp, due to an inexplicable birth defect. They could also tell that his missing limp would sometimes cause him pain. His rescuer and vet nurse, Marley Christian, from Friends of Koala, began to dress Triumph's stump in dolls' socks and little booties. They have discovered that when doing so, it helped relieve some of the sensitivity Triumph was feeling. 

Marley Christian searched the globe for someone to make a prosthetic, unfortunately, no one was willing to take on the task. "We were told it had not been done and it could not be done," Marley Christian told ABC

An American company that specialized in animal prosthetics decided to take Triumph's case, but sadly, they could not manufacture a design that would comfortably stay on. It wasn't until Marley Christian mentioned Triumph's case in passing to an Australian dentist, Lismore dental prosthetist Jon Doulman, who then volunteered to help build Triumph a prosthetic foot himself. 

And he succeeded.

Twelve Happy Pups Playing In The Snow (Gifs)

Do you remember those younger days where it would snow so bad that school would be closed? Yeah, us either. Being from a state where our seasonal disaster is fire, fire days weren't as fun. However, we'd always get so jealous of those who got a full day of snow and got to hang out with all their friends sledding down a hill or having a snowball fight. You know, classic holiday movie fun (without the fear of your home burning down). Those seem like the days to remember.

We also imagine that feeling is what dogs tend to feel when they go out into the snow! You can just see their excitement, their joy, it warms our frozen hearts. Even though we never personally got to experience an iconic snow day, these dogs living it to the fullest is enough for us.

Illustrator Creates Fun Cat Costume Guessing Game (Comics)

Oh, costumes! Nothing screams "fun" like dressing up! We humans really love to dress up. We love it so much we have holidays dedicated to the art of dressing up. However, do you know who hates dressing up? You guessed it -- cats. Cats don't tend to like the outfits we put them in, no matter how cute they may be. With the exception of some cats, still, it's pretty rare to come across a cat who enjoys wearing anything on their beautiful coat. Most cats we knew even hate having a collar! And that's about as basic cat clothing can be.

We can still have fun with cats dressed up though, and this way no cat has to endure dressing up! In collaboration with Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, we can enjoy cats all dressed up without any of the guilt! Zeffren has illustrated a few cat costumes below, and it's your task to guess what that costume is! The first image will simply show the costume, and the following will reveal the answer in the upside-down text.  

Let us know how many you got correct in the comments below! 

And if you want more cat enjoyment, be sure to check out last week's installment: New "Unofficial" Study Released On Toy Mice Statistics!
