Tiny Tim, the tiniest out of 14 small rabbits that were born to a rescue rabbit, had a long journey. From being 1.15 pounds and feisty as heck, to having a near death experience, to being best friends with a whooole bunch of rescue puppies, this tiny bunny's life has been a huge adventure.

"You could always see him in the middle of the pile, trying to get warm," says his caretaker in the video about his time as the tiniest of 14 brothers and sisters. And later on, about him when he's older: "Tim will constantly start doing zoomies, basically just expressing pure joy to be alive." 

So, despite the hardships of being so smol, little Tim is conquering and happy, and that makes all of us happy!

Does this bird remind anyone of someone they know? We thought so too, this is bird was most likely a cat in its previous life. Constantly knocking things off a surface? That has cat written all over it! Perhaps, it's a classic case of bird hardware running cat software. We've seen it before

If a cat were to witness this bird doing what he does best, throwing things, we would assume the cat would be very proud of his successor. As are we. This has been a wonderfully short compilation of a single bird who has the need to throw, and we recognize that decision and applaud it. Why? Because this bird is our inner selves. We would love nothing more than to throw everything off the table right now but we're held back. This bird lives freely, by no one's rules. This bird is wild.

Shocked Pets Who Just Discovered They Are Adopted

Surprise! Well, it can't be that much of a surprise. These expressive pets look as if they were just told the most shocking news -- and what's more shocking than finding out you're adopted? We're sure there are plenty of things but this one just felt right. 

Expressive animals are one of our favorite things in this world, it's so hilarious and truly makes it known that all animals carry an arrange of emotions, just like us. You can see when they're angry, scared, or happy. You can tell when they're shocked, curious, or suspicious. They wear their heart on their sleeve, their facial expressions just give them away and we're so thankful for that! 

There are cats who are more expressive than others but all cats can show some facial expressions. Here are 20 pets who just discovered the dreaded truth... they aren't the hooman's biological baby.

Cats Vs Plants: The Eternal Struggle

Something all cat owners can relate to... a universal truth: cats and their plants that never stood a chance. It's a hard lesson that some never seem to give up on. With each plant you buy and bring into your home, you're filled with peace and happiness. This plant will brighten up the room, it will add scenery to your garden, it can even provide you with food and your favorite tea ingredients. Too bad the chances of it surviving are so darn low. Why? Because cats will always find a way to either destroy your new plant baby, munch away on the juicy leaves, or just decide to live in the pot where it slowly, but surely, dies. 

It's an eternal struggle, this endless game we play. This is why cat owners can't have nice things:

This is new and fun! Former Amazon engineer, Javier Sanchez, who previously worked on Amazon's Alexa has now unveiled his latest project and it's all about cats! An app that translates your cat's meows -- MeowTalk. 

You'll be able to decipher your cat's meow based on tone, everything from "I'm hungry" to even "I'm in pain." 

Javier Sanchez who was working with Bellevue-based tech company Akvelon developed this app named MeowTalk. Sanchez tells King 5, "It's not a language. They don't share words or communicate with each other. Cats never meow at each other out in nature."

So, what was the inspiration being this app? Sanchez reveals he was initially intrigued by the NPR series, "The Secret Language of Cats," and thanks to previously working on Alexa, he was motivated to develop this new tool for cats. According to Sanchez and his team, there are about "nine intents that all cats have." 

The ultimate goal for this app is to someday become a collar with a voice response. While testing a prototype of this collar, Sanchez holds his own kitten and when the cat let out a meow, it translated to "I'm angry, leave me alone!"

Sounds pretty accurate to us! While the development of this app is still underway we definitely look forward to this fun, and perhaps knowledgeable, app!
