Finn's Owner Gets Crafty With His Cone In Padorable Photo Shoot

Meet Finn, the golden retriever and 1000% good boy! Finn had gotten received neutered and had to wear a cone for up to two weeks, in the hopes of cheering him up -- his mom, Jenn Frates, decided to decorate his cone daily in fun new themes. 

And not only did they cheer Finn up, but they also cheered us up too. Frates told The Dodo, "I thought it would be a fun way to get through the long two weeks of him having to wear an ugly cone. I'm trying to stock his first-year puppy book with lots of funny memories. I also just love art/being crafty in any form." 

Frates continued, "We do a lot of photoshoots so he knows when I have him sit in the backyard that he has to wait and if he does … lots of treats are coming." And what pup wouldn't be excited about a treat? We absolutely adored scrolling through Finn's photoshoot and we hope you do too!

Twitter Having A Blast With The 'River Bear' Trend (Viral Tweets)

Well, well, another day on twitter, another adorable animal goes viral, and you would never expect it to be this one. A bear in a river. That's right. You hear that ad may not think anything of it, but my gosh, that bear is the cutest bear that we've ever seen (and that's despite the fact that all bears are totally adorable), and we are not even slightly surprised that the internet went crazy over it. 

It's so cute, it inspired endless artists to create adorable versions of the bear themselves, and we felt the need to give them all (and the bear) some love. So, enjoy this adorable fluffball in all of its versions, and have a pawtasitc weekend!

Activating The Purr Machine (Comic)

Did you know that purring not only helps you to relax but also has healing properties for the cat itself? That's right! Purrs are heckin' powerful and should be respected as such. We humans can benefit from that therapeutic vibration as it is linked to lowering stress, lessens the chances of having a heart attack, and more. 

Cats can actually add years to your life! If you needed convincing to get a (or another) cat, there you go! 

Cats may have therapeutic healing purrs, but they can be quite the tricky machine to figure out. Once you've nailed that mechanism, those healing properties are all yours! Oh, and we're sure the cat will be pleased as well. 

In collaboration with Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, a cute comic about the inner workings of what it takes to make a cat purr.

Jenny Jinya's Newest Comic About Heartbreak Is Based On A True Story

Jenny Jinya's newest comic has such writing this intro through a stream of tears. This time, Jinya has decided to make a comic out of a true story, a story from last year in which a swan had died of a broken heart due to some teens destroying her eggs. 

This comic seems to hurt more knowing it's based on such a sad and cruel story. The thought of anyone hurting any animal is difficult enough, people should be aware that their actions have consequences. And to those who destroyed this swan's eggs, you all should be ashamed. The mother-to-be had six eggs destroyed, leaving her utterly heartbroken and eventually lead to her death. Our hearts break a hundred times over reading this story and of course, seeing Jinya's emotional comic on the subject. 

Jinya creates comics about real issues animals faces such as suffering and abuse. Sometimes (or always), the comics are devastating and leave us in a pile of our own tears. Jinya has the gift of conveying important messages in an achingly haunting yet beautiful way. 

Be sure to have those tissues handy, folks, you're going to need them.

Cats Discuss Their Recent Meal (Comic)

Food. We take pictures of it and upload them for all to see. What for? It's not like we'll revisit those images. Or maybe some do. However, we as humans always share with one another what we had to eat that day, and what we plan to eat later that day. We simply can't help talking about food! Why? Because food is amazing. Cats understand, cats absolutely love to eat. We understand that because a majority of us humans also love to eat. But cats really love to eat. 

If cats could share their most recently consumed meal with one another, how would that look? What would they say? Thanks to Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, we have the answer to these tantalizing questions below. 

And if you want more cat enjoyment, be sure to check out last week's installment: Deep thoughts cats have before they fall asleep.

Artist Imagines Scenarios With And Without A Dog

Pets. How different our lives are when we have a loving animal with us. You may not even realize it, but little things in your life are altered thanks to your adorable companion. One artist decided to explore what life would be like without a dog, and the exact same scenario with a dog. To take in the pup or say, "no, thank you," that is the question and will lead this character down two different timelines. The result? It's as clear as night and day.

The talented artist behind these powerful illustrations is Ademar Vieira. Ademar Vieira is a journalist, screenwriter, and illustrator. He works in an animation studio in Brazil and since 2018, he produces comic books in partnership with other illustrators and alone. In 2020, his comic strips, which talk about social, environmental, and personal issues, went viral in Latin America and other parts of the world.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and these illustrations convey those thousand words.

Deep Thoughts Cats Have Before They Fall Asleep (Comics)

Cats certainly sleep a lot. That's really no surprise to anyone. However, has anyone ever taken a moment to think about what our sleeping angels might be thinking of just before they drift to slumberland? Sure, it can be thoughts about how much love food, or if they're like us, how much they love sleeping (just before sleeping). Or perhaps they have deeper thoughts. Thoughts of taking over your household and/or infiltrating a secret organization to take over the world. 

You know, cat things. Or maybe, just maybe, those thoughts could just be of you. Their favorite person in the world... who also cleans their litter box regularly and feeds them multiple times a day. 

In collaboration with popular Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, we explore the deep and interesting thoughts we believe cats would have before falling into one of their daily 18 naps.

There are so many types of cat personalities out there! 

In collaboration with popular Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, we bring you this fine questionnaire that will force you to recognize the truth, your cat is a goofy oddball weirdo. Fill out the questionnaire below as you scroll and let us know your final tally in the comments below! Just HOW strange is your cat?

"The Frog Prince:" The Untold Story (Comic)

You've probably heard of the classic saying that if you kiss a frog, it may just turn into your prince charming. But... what if you don't really care about prince charming or finding true love? What if you don't need any man and would much rather have a plate of your all-time favorite meal? What if food was your one and only true love? That's what we'd imagine a cat's wish would be, anyway. 

In collaboration with popular Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, we discover the unheard version of the classic tale of the 'The Frog Prince,' one which features a cat as the main protagonist. 

And if you want more cat enjoyment, be sure to check out last week's installment of the very difficult decisions and the perfectionism that comes with being a cat.
