What Pregnancies Look Like In The Animal World (Viral Thread)

No matter how much knowledge we have about nature, every once in a while, something will shock us and remind us how amazing nature actually is. Whether it's the incredible bonds between animals, whether it's coming across a list of beautiful animals with unusual color mutations, or whether it's something as simple yet as amazing as seeing the way pregnancies look like in nature. 

Even thought every birth of an endangered animal is something that we celebrate, the actual is something that we, for whatever reason, haven't thought about very often. But, this viral thread on imgurhas opened our eyes, and has made us have a whole new appreciation for the heartwarming relationships between animal mommas and their babies.

Sweet Robin Couple Becomes Parents (Videos)

Hello to all and to all a good day! Boy, do we have a treat for you today! It's not every day we get to witness the miracle of new life being brought into this world. Birth and life in the animal kingdom looks veryyy different from our human world. The American Robin goes through the (not so simple!) process of laying and incubating eggs until their bird babies are ready to hatch and enter the world! Birds are awesome.

The American Robin is an icon of American springtime, known for their bright orange bellies and beautiful songs! Fun fact: the American Robin is the state bird for Connecticut, Michigan, and Wisconsin. These birds have clearly captured  the attention these states' residents, and today they've captured ours as well! Let's watch this magical process.

Cattle Cuties, Awwdorable Calf And Cow Pictures

Good day and good vibes! Today we have compiled a collection of awwdorable cattle cuties. These sweethearts spend most of their time grazing on the farm, but occasionally consent to a quick snap of the camera. We do not often think of cows and their babies as particularly 'cute' animals, but after scrolling through this series, we have definitely started to reconsider!

Like many other animals, these cattle cuties have some super expressive faces! We think that what makes these guys super special and unique are their soft sensitive eyes and sweet floofy ears. Who knew baby cows could be so floofy! These creatures are wonderfully delicate and an absolute pleasure to observe.

Heartwarming Tweets Of Children Sleeping Next To Cats

Is there anything that makes you happier than when your pet shows you love, trust and affection? Personally, it's one of the things that makes me the happiest in the world. One of the best ways to see that love and affection, of course, is when your kitty comes to sleep in your bed at night. It's a show of trust not just from the cat but from you too, closing your eyes next to each other like that, and that only brings the two of you closer. 

Having your cat curl up next to you is one of the purest, most wholesome things in the world, but seeing your baby curled up with your cat might be even more cuter. Prepare yourself, the cat tweets you're about to see are so cute and heartwarming you might just get an inexplicable urge to immediately go hug your cat.

Cheetah Moms With Their Little Cheetos

One of our favorite things in the animal kingdom is the obvious, heartwarming love between mothers and their tiny little babies. And the bigger they are, the more adorable we find them. There's a tendency to think of big cats as dangerous and heartless, but we know better than that, we know that they are just as loving as any cat once you earn their trust and love. 

Cheetahs are no different. They are known to be one of the most affectionate big cats when it comes to their relationships with humans. But when it comes to their babies, their little cheetos, their love and adoration is clear as day, and it's so adorable and wholesome, it makes our hearts flutter.

Large Puppers Being Gentle Giants With Human Babies

We know that dogs are some of the nicest, gentlest creatures, but there's always some worry about the reaction the family pet will have to the new baby. It's hard, we're worried about both the baby and the dog - don't want the baby to be hurt or scared and don't want the doggo to be getting jealous of the new human in the house who will be getting endless attention. 

There's no reason to worry though, not with dogs, because dogs are absolutely amazing. More often than not, dogs become best friends with the tiny new humans, and we get to watch them grow up together and be each other's best friends. And it might be one of the most wholesome things we ever get to see, our gorgeous little gentle giant doggos growing up with our little tiny human babies.

Grandpa-To-Be Demonstrates Bathing A Baby By Using A Cat

This is so adorable and we're amazed at how incredibly zen this cat is! If only all cats were this chill...

A Vietnamese grandpa-to-be whose video of demonstrating bathing a baby is going viral! A creative video, taken by Vinh Quang Phạm, and shared on Facebook, shows how to hold and position a baby for a bath while using what we're now believing to be the most relaxed cat of all time. The cat in the video is so at peace while being held like an infant and gently placed in an empty basin, it's almost as if the cat understands the role it's been given. The cat stays still and obedient for more than 2 minutes as it received free rubs. 

This video is so precious and helpful, we're sure his son will be a natural father, and if not, there's always grandpa who has purrfected his baby-bathing technique! You can see more videos of this adorable cat on TikTik!

Cats With Babies: Wholesome Collection Of Cats Being Friends With Small Humans (24 Pictures)

There's always some concern when it comes to leaving your baby with a cat. It's a fair thing to worry about since we know, as cat owners, that no matter how much our cat loves us, accidents happen, and sometimes we get scratched. Despite that, you might have noticed that cats have a tendency to want to be around a baby - smell it, sleep snuggled up next to it, lick its head. It might be because a lot of times babies smell like milk. It might be because cats are just curious creatures and babies are new and interesting additions to their homes. 

There's no obvious explanation for the care cats show to babies, but one thing that we do know is that it is omg so adorable. To show you just how sweet cats and babies can be together, we have gathered 24 pictures of just that to warm your heart and make your stomach flutter throughout the day. 

If you're in the mood for some more animal baby adorableness, here are some pets showing love to their pregnant hoomans.

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!

San Diego Zoo Announces Birth Of Endangered Lemur Twins

A big congrats to San Diego Zoo and to the mother, Rosalita, who birthed two endangered ring-tailed lemurs on July 8, 2020. 

The twins, one male, and one female (yet to be named) went through the Zoo's veterinarian's quality wellness check, to make sure everything is fine (ie, nursing properly, gaining weight, etc).

 Both twins have yet to be named but are in good health and very loved by all, especially their mother. 

Yeleny Smith, wildlife care specialist at the San Diego Zoo knew Rosalita would be an excellent mother from the start, "She immediately exhibited all the appropriate behaviors of a lemur mom—being very attentive, grooming them, placing them in the appropriate nursing position, encouraging them to nurse and tending to their every need. These births are significant, as they allow us to continue to learn and share knowledge about this endangered lemur species."

What a sight it must be! According to San Diego Zoo, the 13-day-old twins are often seen "clinging to their mothers' belly" as she often nurses them and relaxes in the sun. 

Who else is currently looking up San Diego ticket prices to see these two precious babies? Both San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park are open but with added safety and health protocols.
