The Laws Of Physics Mean Jack Diddly-Squat To Cats

When it comes to physics, cats seem to defy it all. No one is quite sure if they come in a solid or liquid state, at this point. They can climb a smooth paving wall and just... stay there. And what's even more confusing than the act itself is how comfortable they look doing it. It's as if their strange and abnormal position doesn't seem to affect them in the slightest. 

Cats are strange mysterious creatures that we may be able to understand and solve. And we've made peace with knowing that. However, even though we've made peace with it, doesn't mean we are stumped every now and then when coming across images such as these below.

Imgur User Reveals Before And After Pics Of The Foster Animals She Cared For In 2020

Hope you all are ready for some wholesome smiles today! 

We all have been through the madness that was 2020 and know how difficult and challenging that particular year has been. We also know that even though it was an awful year where we couldn't physically be with one another, there were some pros to the pandemic. Mainly, the fact shelters around the world were emptying out due to everyone's need for companionship. So many beautiful animals found their forever home in 2020 and we are forever grateful for it. 

Not only did animals find their forever homes, but certain wonderful people took it upon themselves to help animals in need. This is exactly what Imgur user thesorrycynic did. In a story shared on Imgur, thesorrycynic reveals photos of all the animals she helped foster during 2020 and shared photos of their progress. And yes, it is utterly wholesome. 

Just further proof that love can transform all! 

The commentary below is provided by thesorrycynic. 

imgur user shares all the progress photos of animals she fostered in 2020 - thumbnail dog before and after "Ripple went through hell, some freak poured diesel fuel on her and tried to set her on fire. She had extensive chemical burns and needed to wear t-shirts to protect her skin. She healed up BEAUTIFULLY, and all the fur grew back over the scars! She's now living a fabulous life in Vermont backpacking with her person""

How is it February already? And how is it that Valentine's Day is around the corner? We feel like we're still back in March of 2020 and completely unprepared for the celebration of love this year. Yet, time stops for no one and we are here, with Valentine's Day right around the corner. 

At least we have a new Simon's cat special to commemorate the occasion! The new special is called, "Perfect Pitch," and Simon's Cat tries his absolute best to serenade the lovely Chloe, in honor of the day of love. 

All we can say is that, when Simon's cat said "Meow meow meeeeowwww," we really felt that.

Cat Medley: Cuteness Galore, Funnies, Seniors And Rescues

Thank goodness for all the cats in the world for providing us with so much joy and laughter. We can't help but admire everything about them, from the tips of their fuzzy ears down to their toe beans. We're madly in love with all cats and we don't care who knows it. 

Once a week, we like to celebrate the beauty and silliness that is cats in a mashed-up medley. A medley full of laughs, aww's, and sometimes even sadness. It's important to us that we appreciate all stages of a cat's life, no matter how difficult it may become. 

cat medley filled with cuteness, laughs, rescues - thumbnail of senior cat "Silly old fart adopted as a senior cat in 2009. Humane Society only charged us $40 "because he's old". 12 years later and he still does 4am zoomies. Never change, Toby."

Posts Capturing Animals' Love For Each Other

There is nothing more wholesome than animal showing love. There's never any agenda behind it, never any goal, nothing. Animals loving humans or animals loving each other is the purest thing in the world. 

Their love is earned in ways different than those of humans, and when you manage to get it, it is the best feeling in the world. And it is just as beautiful when animals accept each other: when your cat totally falls in love with the new kitten you bring home, when two lions give each other some cuddles, or when two different animals of entirely different species decide that being friends is much more fun than fighting.

Love is in the air, and it is all around us, so we're sharing some of it with you,

Criminally 'Smol' Kittens Stealing Hearts Left And Right

They most certainly are stealing all the hearts that gaze upon their insane smolness, and we, for one, are totally OK with having our hearts stolen and never having it returned. Why? You'll fully understand the moment you scroll down and look at those little faces with their little bodies... they're so little!

Almost makes us want to cry out of sheer amazement due to their itty bitty size. Ah, who are we kidding? Let those tears roll and don't be ashamed of it!

Imgur User Shares Photos Of Impossibly Cute Kitten

What can really be said about kittens that has not been said before? Kittens (and photos of kittens) make our hearts squeal in joy and delight. They are simply way too cute for any of us to handle and we can't handle it, thus our overwhelming need to squeal and squeeze them. 

We seriously can't get enough of any cat, at any stage in their life

Right now, we can't get enough of this orange little fuzzball shared with the Imgur community by user FeistyPeachtron. The commentary below is provided by user FeistyPeachtron, as well.

Dads Falling In Love With Pets They Didn't Want

A tale as old as time... The first act: dads insisting on not getting a pet. The second: dads complaining about the pet the family got and acting like they can barely tolerate it. Act three: finding your dad cuddling your new cat/dog on the couch... still acting like they can only barely tolerate them. 

Really, they should stop pretending, we all see through them. No one can withstand the power of the cute.

r/dadswhodidnotwantpets on Reddit is the ultimate proof of that, considering how many people share their stories on it. It's wholesomeness galore, heartwarming stories and nothing else, and as someone with a dad just like one of those, I love these stories more than anything.

Mirror Mirror: Cats Truly Are The Fairest of Them All (Comic)

When it comes to gorgeous animals, cats may hold the number one spot. Think about it, not only are all felines absolutely gorgeous, they are elegant and graceful (...most times). As a species, we are madly obsessed with them and literally cannot stop looking at them -- there's a reason why the most popular search on the web is all cat-related. They are truthfully quite perfect. Even cats who aren't "perfect" are also perfect

We believe if you were to look up the word "beautiful" in the dictionary, there should just be an image of a cat and nothing else. And not only do we happen to admire our favorite feline companions, but they obviously love themselves just as much as we love them. And why shouldn't they? Like we said -- they're perfect! 

In collaboration with Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, we explore just how much our feline companions admire themselves above all others. 

And if you want more cat enjoyment, be sure to check out last week's installment: Activating The Purr Machine.
