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!

It happens to the best of us! Those of you who think you're not a "cat person," have you ever considered the possibility it's because you just haven't met the right cat? Or even give it a real chance? Cats can be the most affectionate and the silliest of pets.  

One man, in particular, was about to learn just how amazing it could be to have a cat in your life, and not just any cat but a disabled one at that. Introducing Scooter the cat! Even being told that Scooter's condition was temporary, it was quickly understood by Scooter's dad that her condition was permanent. Scooter is unable to properly use her hind legs, leaving her front legs to do all the work. And due to this effect, the name Scooter came to be!  

Watch the magic and love unfold, and follow Scooter on Instagram

Extremely Rare Never-Before-Seen Yellow Penguin Captured By Photographer

Rare animals are... well, rare to come by. And this golden penguin is no exception! One wildlife photographer, Yves Adams, has won nature's lottery by being the first to spot and capture a never-before-seen yellow penguin. The penguin is a King penguin, potentially the very first of its kind. 

Yves Adams believes that the yellow penguin spotted on an island in South Georgia is leucistic. Leucism is a condition that results in the partial loss of pigmentation. Whereas albinism is the absence of melanin, leucism is only partial, which can make the animal have white or patchy colored skin, feathers, or hair. 

In an interview with the Independent, Yves Adams had this to say about the rare and unique moment he first spotted the yellow penguin, "I'd never seen or heard of a yellow penguin before. There were 120,000 birds on that beach, and this was the only yellow one there. They all looked normal except for this one. It really was something else. It was an incredibly unique experience. One of the birds looked really strange, and when I looked closer it was yellow. We all went crazy when we realized. We dropped all the safety equipment and grabbed our cameras."

Adams continued, "We were so lucky the bird landed right where we were. Our view wasn't blocked by a sea of massive animals. Normally it's almost impossible to move on this beach because of them all. It was heaven that he landed by us. If it had been 50 metres away, we wouldn't have been able to get this show of a lifetime."

This isn't the first time we've seen rare golden animals out in the wild, but it is the very first golden penguin!

This baby skunk has the cutest little stomps and it's one of the cutest things we've seen in a hot minute! This stomp first begins when the baby skunk learns to stomp his hands, and soon enough, he begins to do handstands as he stomps his back feet!

If that isn't the most precious thing we've heard or seen today, then you must live a really great life with cuteness around you! This little fella was rescued and cared for by the amazing MoonShine Wildlife Rehab, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to "rehabilitating sick, injured or abandoned wildlife and releasing them back into their appropriate habitat."
