Cat Medley: Cuteness, Appreciation, Mourning And Loss

Cats, cats, and cats. Nothing but cats and that's how we like it! Each week, we love to collect the best cat pics and stories online and present them here. 

Each cat picture, or video, tells a different story and has a different set of emotions behind it. That's what makes this gathering a medley of a variety of things, number one being adorableness (which, granted, all cats naturally have), the second is the much-needed balance of humor, and the last being anything that tugs on the heartstrings (good or bad).

In this case, we have both. We have heartwarming stories of glow-ups and transformations. Yet, we also have heartbreaking moments of mourning and loss. We wanted to take a moment and send love to those who had recently had a pet cross the rainbow bridge. Your pet may be gone physically, but never emotionally, and never, ever forgotten.

My, oh, my -- it has been HOT lately! Unless you're coming from the other side of the world, we just gotta say this heatwave is no joke! And if we're feeling the heat, we can only imagine how hot it must be for our furry friends in this world. 

SaveAFox Rescue, the largest fox rescue in the US that allows the most space for foxes to 'feel wild,' is providing some refreshing treats to all their foxes! And just like kids, some will be picky about which slice of watermelon they decide upon! 

It's adorable to see how different each fox's personality is!

Baby Dik-Diks Are So Tiny It Hurts

At just about 15 inches tall, Dik-Dik's might just be the cutest animal around! Dik-dik's are actually the world's smallest antelope species, a "dwarf" antelope, as if they couldn't be any cuter -- these animals are fun-sized forever. 

They are commonly found in southern Africa and have tiny tufts of hair that are small horns, much like a giraffe. The males have the horn and the females don't, just like deer. 

Dik-dik's seem to be a mix of everything we love and combined into one insanely cute animal.

The weekly dose of cuteness is very vital to our nutrition. If you skip a week, please take the other dose as soon as you remember. The best part of this prescription is that you don't need any referrals, and you never have to wait. Each and every Tuesday, you can count on us to provide you with the cuteness you need to get through today and the rest of this week.

Summer Of Kittens: Mountain Lion Baby Boom Near Los Angeles

The Santa Monica Mountains near Los Angeles is getting plenty of kitty attention this summer! According to the National Park Service, 13 kittens were born to 5 different mothers between May and August. 

It's the biggest mountain lion baby boom to occur in the past 18 years within such a short timeframe! National Park Service such a short period of time for the past 18 years! 

Jeff Sikich, a wildlife biologist, said in a previous statement, "This level of reproduction is a great thing to see, especially since half of our mountains burned almost two years ago during the Woolsey Fire."

When the story was shared on Twitter, a few users were wondering if this new kitten boom was in any way related to the pandemic and vanishing foot traffic. There's no way to know for sure but if so, we're glad to hear of another happy outcome from this year's madness. 

Check out some of the insanely adorable kittens below!

Cats guide to ignoring a hooman call:

 If they call you directly: walk away. If they call you by phone: pick up the phone, and then walk away

This gem of a video recently popped up on the YouTube timeline and we figured it would be a good time to revisit this classic moment. 

This video was taken in 1994, so for those who don't know what a landline phone looks like -- this is it right here! When the cat's owner used to come home, the phone would be off the hook with no explanation. 

Turns out, her cat, Pumba, couldn't stand the sound of that continuous ring and will often disable the sound by answering the phone. 

All we can say is that is one smart cat. 

It is added at the bottom of the video's description that Pumba had sadly passed away in 2011, but thanks to YouTube, "he lives to entertain us."

Cats Chasing Their Own Tails: Not Just A Dog Thing

Cats and dogs are very different, that's true. They may spend most of their day sleeping and cleaning themselves, but all of us cat owners know that sometimes, our cats have very dog-like moments. We love them no matter what, of course, but the level of energy that they have sometimes can be straight-up shocking.

Sprinting in circles and falling off chairs in the process, here is a list of cats forgetting that they're not dogs and also that their tails are indeed attached to their bodies and going for a chase.

Dogs Who Don't Realize How Big They Are

Silly, wholesome pups! These dogs don't quite realize how much they've grown! 

When you're a pup, and you're constantly on your human's lap -- I guess you'd figure you'd be able to be on that lap forever. And then all of a sudden, the things you once fit inside so easily don't quite feel the same... and the regular things (and humans) you laid on top of have suddenly shrunk tremendously. Yet, you still try because it fit once, it'll fit again, right?

Check out these overgrown pups who will forever be puppies at heart:

Tahlequah, Orca Who Previously Lost Calf, Is A Mother Again

Finally, some good news in 2020! 

The heartwrenching story of Tahlequah, the orca who kept her dead calf afloat for 17 days, is finally a mother once again! Our hearts are so happy for her and we wish her and her baby calf a healthy, long life. 

In 2018, Tahlequah lost her calf that lived only a half-hour, but this born-to-be mother was so heartbroken, she continuously pushed her baby calf up for 17 days. If that isn't love and perseverance. we truly don't know what is.  

The gender of the calf is unknown. 

Congrats, Tahlequah! You deserve happiness.
