When it comes to babies, learning to walk is one of the biggest and proudest moments for the baby and the baby's parents! It's a miraculous moment in which you know that instinct takes over and the baby just takes that leap of faith and stands on its own. 

It's a beautiful moment to witness and seeing this adorable baby gorilla at Zoo Antwerpen take that leap of faith has us all very proud, and we're positive that so is her community. This adorable little girl is named Thandie and here she is at 15 weeks old. This video was taken back in May 2019, and it's strange to think that was nearly 2 years ago. 

Still, this video makes us happy and we're here to share that some delightful feeling with you.

Wildlife Photographers Get Up Close And Personal With Subjects

Is it too late to become a wildlife photographer? If the end result is to be surrounded with adorable animals and maybe even one day have a cute baby animal so curious about who you are that they simply wander up to you and become your new best friend. Who in the world wouldn't love that experience?

Ah yes, life as a wild photographer is looking quite grand indeed. You can tell from the look of pure happiness on the photographer's faces as they get real up-close and personal with some of their adorable subjects! We can't blame them for that though, we believe if it had been us in their place, there might be some crying due to pure joy. 

But those who got a bit too close to that bear had the right idea of fleeing!

Time To Take In The Weekly Dose Of Cute (#118)

So much cuteness in such a small package! Welcome back, cute animal lovers! We've got a lovely collection of some of the cuteness animal pictures and videos currently making the rounds on the web. 

Once a week, we like to bring you a gallery of the cuteness animal pics and vids we come after and deliver them here in one place. Our weekly prescription of cuteness is an essential part of anyone's diet. They say looking at cute animals helps relieve stress and so we're hoping this dump of cuteness really takes off a lot of anxiety and pressure anyone might be feeling. If you're having a more difficult week and need an extra cuteness boost, don't you worry, we've got you covered.

Giving Thanks To Professional Dogs Hard At Work

It is often talked about how pets are a lot of work - you do so much for them and all you get in return is love, right? Wrong. Pets give back so much more than just love. For some people, they're their stability and support, for others, pets are one of the reasons they keep fighting day by day. 

Then, there are dogs who have made it their actual jobs to help people, and seeing everything that they do each and every day truly makes us think that we're the ones not doing enough for them. So, today, we're saying thank you to all of our doggo helpers and doggo heroes. And we're saying thank you to r/dogswithjobs, the subreddit that gives these amazing doggos love every single day!

People Tweet About Changing Their Minds And Adopting A Senior Pet At The Last Second

Most people, when going to adopt a pet, tend to go for the little ones- the baby kittens and puppies who they'll get to raise into their families. And of course, while every adoption and every rescue is to be celebrated, it's important to remember to adopt senior and sick pets too. And sometimes, it happens that this understanding comes to you as you're already in the shelter, about to pick up your tiny new baby, and then an older one-eyes cat looks at you, and finds its way right into your soul.

A tweet sharing a story like that went viral, and other twitter users with similar stories chimed in, sharing their own stories of last minute changes to adoption plans- ones that ended with them picking up the less fortunate animals and giving them a warm home too. 

So, bring in the tissues and let your heart warm with joy.

Instead I ended up adopting a 7 yr old chubby tub of love with sad eyes that were begging for a mommy. It was love at first sight. I can't wait to bring him home and spoil him silly.

Tumblr Thread: Cat That Is Really Bad At Meowing

Everyone, meet Citra - the cutest orange female kitty who doesn't know how to meow properly. It happens sometimes, what can you do? Some cats just don't know how to cat, but we don't love them any less because of it. Our adorable little furballs are the best no matter how imperfectly perfect they are. And Citra, tumblr user's happyhealthycats's kitty, is extra perfect. 

Of course, tumblr instantly fell in love with her, as did we, but we also fell in love with her twin sister and with their three unrelated siblings, each of whom is an adorable weirdo in its own right. So, listen to Citra's weirdo little broken meows and fall in love with her like the rest of us.

tumblr thread about a cat who doesn't know how to meow thumbnail includes a picture of two orange cats with the caption 'Text - Simcoe (left) and Citra (right), both girls. Both rescues. Both biological litter mates (sisters). Both long term loving projects to teach human trust to. Simcoe got 100% of the meowing capabilities.'

Photos Of Cats Supervising Stores Around The World (50 Tweets)

Do you ever walk into a store and feel a sudden chill? As if someone or something is watching you? Well, you may be right, and that someone or something watching you might just be the store's supervisor -- a cat. 

One Twitter account, Bodega Cats, features images of cats, from around the world, in various different shops. What are these cats doing in these shops? Well, they're running the entire operation of course! These cats are supervising that all order is properly maintained. It's no easy task but someone has got to do it and cats are natural-born leaders, after all. 

Bodega Cats originally started with a few photos of New York City neighborhood cats and has become a worldwide phenomenon! The money made from Bodega Cat's web store (which is filled with cool cat goodies) goes towards helping Flatbush Cats. Flatbush Cats is an organization focused on giving cats a second chance to enjoy life. They work on reducing the outdoor population of cats in Brooklyn by TNR (trap, neuter, return), free/low cat spay/neuter for low-income residents, rescue work, and adoption.

What would you do if a hungry adorable doggo showed up on your doorstep one day? It isn't an easy decision, especially when you have other pets in the house. But this couple did the best they could do, slowly and gently getting closer to the dog, giving it treats and pets, taking it into their home, alongside their two dogs, and making sure that this pooch got the love that he deserved.

It took him a while to allow the humans to love him, but eventually, this cutie's tail started wagging, and he started playing with the two other dogs, and our hearts were filled with joy. Most importantly, this couple made sure to find the right forever home for this adorable doggo, and we're thankful for all their incredible work.

I don't know about you, but I understand why a huge, enormous puppy would be afraid of a tiny kitten. I mean, yes, you'd think it would make more sense for the opposite to be true, which it most times is, but I totally understand why the dog would be afraid of the kitten. Us, cat people, know exactly how fierce even the smallest kittens can be, and the dog can clearly sense that.

The German shepherd is excited, of course it is, but it is also adorably intimidated, barking and sniffing, and generally trying to asses the kitten's level of fierce. And though we can't explain why, we think these two will be BFFs in the future.
