What a young beauty! Introducing Ahava, a three-month-old female snow leopard cub that has made her public debut at the Brookfield Zoo in Illinois.

Snow leopards are one of the rarest wildcats to come across, sadly, only as few as 4,000 snow leopards still remain in the wild. They are often solidarity creatures, who can be referred to as the "ghost of the mountain," due to their scarce and elusive sightings. 

Find out how you can help protect these elusive beauties and ensure their survival for generations to come at WWF

2020 Comedy Wildlife Photography Award Finalists

2020 has been one rocky year but luckily, in the world of animals, it's never been better! Since the beginning of the pandemic, it was the Earth and animals that have benefited from the lack of us humans destroying the world. 

And with the yearly competition, Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, we're further able to celebrate the magic that is animals, majestic or not. The incredible photographers that have been selected for this year's finalists have really delivered some animal gems! The following photos, captured at the moment, are hysterical and show us all that we're not alone when it comes to looking funny when our photos are taken! 

We were able to talk to Michelle, the head of Comedy Wildlife Photography Award's press office, and asked about the process of narrowing down so many wonderful photographs into the top finalists, she had this to say about the process, "... it is a brutal process. We started with over 7000 images - and whittled them down based on: level of humour, quality of photography, ability to get people's attention. It sounds relatively vague the last point, but we want to get our message of conservation across to as many people as possible, and the images must attract their attention!"

Well, these photographs selected definitely capture our attention! 

The winners will be announced on October 22nd, but the following images are all winners in our eyes! Congrats to all the photographers who made it to the finals and thank you for sharing such imagery with us -- we all could use this fantastic pick-me-up!

Long-Eared Jerboa Is The Cutest Rodent With Rabbit-Like Ears

Recently, we've been on a tiny animal kick, featuring the adorable dik-dik's, or how about those insanely cute Japanese dwarf flying squirrels? 

Well, we're continuing this cuteness run with another uncommonly known animal that deserves your attention: the long-eared jerboa! The long-eared jerboa is a rare nocturnal rodent that is very mouse-like. However, unlike a mouse, it has long hind legs (much like a kangaroo) and comically (and adorably) long ears. Oh, and it also has a miniature snout that resembles a pig. 

Be honest, have you ever seen a cuter mouse/rabbit/kangaroo/piglet mix? We didn't think so!

Newest Cat Rates From 'We Rate Cats' (16 Tweets)

We all know and love We Rate Dogs, but did you know there's an equally righteous cat rating system, as well? That's right! Twitter's own We Rate Cats takes cat rating very seriously, and always seems to get the appropriate score. 

Cat rating must be challenging because they're all so cute and they're all so... cat-like. Maybe it's a good thing ICHC doesn't have a rating system of their own, or else we'd end up giving all cats a solid 20/10. And a 50/10 when we're in a good mood. Like right now. 

All of these cats deserve a 50/10!

Doggos Behaving Suspiciously Like Cats

These doggos seem a tad bit confused... they've got a whole lot of catto energy coming off of them, and coming off strong. 

It would make sense if you had only one dog who grew up in a household with cats, but there are just some positions and things cats can do flawlessly that dogs... well, they can do these things but nowhere near as flawless. In fact, it's just bizarre and unusual to find your dog perched on top of the fridge. Something that cats do so often, you wouldn't even bat an eye. 

It could be due to the large size of dogs, that seeing them in small/cat-like situation seems comical. And it's also a bit confusing to seem them behave like their natural enemy -- cats

I guess it just goes to show that dogs can do (almost) anything that cats can do.

We feel a bit snappy today. And the only way we could express that snappiness is in the form of cat snaps -- of course. 

Is there anything better than a good quality dose of cat snaps to help brighten your mood? If the answer to that question is no, then just don't answer. 

If needed, there are multiple cat snap doses you can treat yourself with, we just ask that you be cautious and aware of the side-effects. The side effects being overdosed by cuteness

You have been warned.
