Redditors Share Photos Of Their Pet Perching On Their Shoulders

There's something overwhelming sweet about seeing an animal perched on a human's shoulder! You can feel the bond the animal and humans share from this simple placement and it simply warms our hearts.

We have no idea where this challenge stemmed but we're assuming someone on Reddit began the trend that spread like wildfire throughout the subreddit r/aww community! Redditors were challenging the community members with an image of them and an animal perched on their shoulder. What sort of animals on their shoulders? From rodents to reptiles to birds, to cats and dogs and even a horse! It's a lovely mish-mash of people and animals and it just makes us smile. 

We hope it leaves you smiling as well. If you have a photo of yourself with an animal on your shoulder, share it with us in the comments below!

For us, adoption day is always a happy day. We get to pick up our favorite little furball and take them to their new forever home where they'll be loved and cherished for the rest of their lives. But what does adoption look like through the eyes of the kitty itself, especially when it's an older kitty who has been in the shelter for a while, waiting for its new family? Allow Earnie - our resident senior cat - to show you. 

All of our dedicated readers have already heard of Meowmoirs, but for those of you who are new: Meowmoirs is a diary written by our resident senior cat who's name is Earnie. He goes through endless intense and world-changing adventures, writing about a new one every single week. Of course, his whole adventure starts with his adoption day. If you wanna read more of his thoughts about it, his reactions to the new home and his new family, read the full entry right here

Animals Various Adorable And Silly Reactions To Snow

Snow. You can love it, you can hate it, you can be unsure about it, you can be fascinated about it, you can be scared of it. There are so many emotions you can feel about anything! And even though animals can't really talk to express their emotions about snow... their reactions to it tells us pretty much all we need to know. 

Such reactions are just universal truths. If you see a cat run away from something, you can tell they're scared. If you see a dog running through the fields and jumping into the lake, you know they're having a blast and seizing the day. There are just some things we can tell without any exchange of words happening. And just like that, we can understand each of these animal's reaction to snow. And they're all different and wonderful in each and every way.

Welcoming And Taking Care Of Two Newborn Puppies With Cleft Lips

It's time to welcome two new puppies into the world!!! 

But these two puppies are not regular puppies. The two babies were both born with cleft lips, making them extra special in many different ways. The cuties will have a harder time than most going through their little doggo journeys. Especially now that they are so, so tiny, they will need some extra special love and care. 

Luckily, they found themselves in the hands of an amazing human. Working in a sanctuary and having taken care of at least one dog that we know of with a cleft lip, imgur user thevaiobandit101 knows what to do. The tiny pups will be tube fed for the next few weeks and will be a lot of work, but they are in good hands. 

Good luck to the puppies and to thevaiobandit101, we wish you an easy and amazing life!

When you think of a cat and a dog, normally you imagine that the dog is doing everything possible to get the cat's attention and hang out whole the cat is being a slow meanie and ignoring it. Well, welcome to opposite day - where the cat is needy and the dog cannot be bothered. 

It's hilarious and adorable at the same time. This is one of the most chill friendships between a cat and a dog that we've ever seen. It's so clear that these guys are best buddies and love and trust each other deeply. So, watching the cat climb all over the dog and knead it, trying to find the most comfortable spot on the doggo bed to snuggle while the dog is calmly letting it do its thing is just painfully cute

Japanese Inn Allows Sleepovers With Cats To Encourage Adoption

This is the greatest idea ever!

If you've always wanted a cat, and just wasn't sure about what living and sleeping with a cat would be like, this one Japanese Inn located in the hot spring town of Yugawara, Kanagawa Prefecture in Japan might be the answer to your questions! My Cat Yugawara, a lovely inn that has a really unique offering... the chance of having a sleepover trial with a potential adoptee! 

In Japan, inns are known as 'ryokans,' and you'll be able to distinguish a ryokan from any common inn, a ryokan has more a minimalist design, futons for sleeping on a mat on the floor, traditionally paper walls, and communal baths (in this case, hot springs as well). What truly sets this inn apart from others is the opportunity to help cats find a forever home. Potential cat owners, who are unsure about living with a cat due to various living conditions, can really have their eyes opened by booking a room with a cuddly and adorable feline. Some rooms at the inn can house up to five people, letting a whole family experience a day in the life of having a cat.

This may be 2-weeks-old but it's definitely worthy enough to talk about 2-weeks-later! Popular Twitter account, Humor and Animals, tweeted this adorable and heartwarming video clip of a golden retriever taking a cat out on a sleigh ride through the snow! The cat, who was wearing a stylish sweater, didn't seem to mind the lift in the slightest! 

This video was originally shared on Christmas Eve and has already been viewed over 730k times! People just love interspecies friendship and we're right there with them! Some of the comments this video have received range from "This is the cutest thing I've ever seen" to this accurate gem of a comment, "Leave it to a cat to let a dog do all the work." So. Heckin.

Gorgeous And Adorable Ocelots To Admire (Cat Appreciation)

Welcome to this mini - but gorgeous - cat gallery where we'll be taking a moment to say a few words about the incredible and stunning Ocelot cat

For those who don't know much about this wild creature, an ocelot is a wild cat that is native to the southwestern region of the United States, Mexico, and South America. Oh, and the Caribbean islands. Many live in the leafy canopies of South American rain forests, and some live in the brushlands and can be found in Texas! Ocelots are larger than a house cat but not as large as a leopard, per se. 

You can tell if the cat is an ocelot due to its unique pattern, solid black spots, and streaks on its coat, and they also have adorable rounded ears! Fun fact about this lovely animal, the ancient people of Peru, known as the Moche people, worshipped ocelots and often drew them in their art! 

Just further proof that cats are holy beings and we're simply here to worship them.
