Thread: Saving And Adopting A Newborn Kitten With Umbilical Cord Still Attached

There can be many reasons in the wild for which even the most loving animal mommas would reject one of their babies. Nature is cruel like that. And though we don't know the exact reason behind the abandonment of this itty bitty kitty in this story, we can only be thankful that it turned out the way it did. 

Abandoned by its mom, a newborn kitten with its eyes still closedand the umbilical cord still attached to it was thankfully found by YucateCosa's neighbor. Following that, after getting lucky approximately 53 more times, this kitten found its new forever home. Thank you to YucateCosa for taking care of her and giving her the love and care that she deserved. Few could have and would have done what you did, and we are so, so thankful.

Thread: Trusting Stray Cat Mom Brings Kittens To Her Chosen Human

It's not an easy feat to grain a cat's trust. Many times, cats are aloof for a while before finally choosing their human. They're defensive by nature, and they're even more defensive when they have babies. To have cat moms trust their humans with their babies is an even bigger accomplishment. It's just that sometimes, even while they're still scared, cat mommas have no choice but to look for help with the human predators that scare them.

Such is the case with the cat mom that brunion has been feeding for a while. Maybe becoming a domesticated cat wouldn't have been her first choice, but in an attempt to help her babies, she went to the food-providing human anyway. It's safe to say that, now that these kitties are living in brunion's house, brunion is not the one who fostered them, the cat is the one who fostered this human.

Twitter Thread: Rescuing And Returning A Baby Chick To Its Family

The animal kingdom, as much as we love it, can be a pretty brutal place. Many times, for various reasons, helpless animals find themselves alone and unable to fend for themselves. Like, when 5 cheetah cubs tragically lost their mom and had to be rescued or when a bobcat was dropped on its head by a hawk as a kitten and now lives in a sanctuary because it doesn't understand it's a predator. Even the fiercest animal won't survive on its own like that.

And if it's a tiny helpless baby chick like in this twitter thread, its chances are closes to none. Thankfully, this chick found itself in the hands of a wonderful human who decided to rescue it. Because all animals, especially newborn ones, deserve to be saved. Whether it's a tiny squeaky fox cub stuck in a river, a sick 'ugly fish who was abused by its previous owners, or this itty bitty baby chick who's momma... is not the most responsible momma.

We have hella chickens over here so seeing them is normal but the chicks are never alone or too far from their mom. I don't know what to do'

Let's be honest, there is nothing cuter in the whole world than baby animals. It doesn't matter which animal it is - from itty bitty tiny kittens to awwdorable and underappreciated hyaena cubs - so long as the animal is in its teeny weeny baby form, we love it. They are so new to this world, looking around and discovering every little bit of it. 

Their innocence about the world is part of what makes them so cute. That as well as their occasional mild confusions. Like this adorable noisy baby seal who, for some unclear reason, confused a photographer filming it for its momma. Well, we suppose that could happen to anyone, and we get to watch the footage of this squeaky baby.

Tumblr Thread: Pregnant Feral Cat Falls In Love With New Forever Home

When animals are pregnant, they do what they need to do to keep their babies safe, even if it means asking for help from the scary huge humans. This cat momma is the purrfect example of that. Even though she was totally feral, she found herself in a situation where she needed help, and she was ready to take it, reluctantly trusting her human with her tiny kittens, because that's what loving animal mommas do. 

Amazingly, this totally feral cat slowly but surely fell in love with her new human and became a total cuddle monster. Now, she's a cuddler and loves attention, and her insanely adorable babies are in safe hands. It's a wholesome story all around of love and acceptance, and we hope you enjoy reading about it as much as we did. 

tumblr thread about a feral pregnant cat finding a forever home | thumbnail includes one tumblr post 'Font - sermna Follow There's a mama cat living in my garage named Felicia. When she first showed up she was almost completely feral. She knew humans dispensed food, and that was about as far as her trust and interest extended for many months. But y'all, she fucked up. She had kittens in my garage last May. She was at my mercy.'

Pregnant Cat Begs Woman For Help To Save Her Kittens

If there is one thing that we have observed over our time reading animal stories is that animal mommas will do absolutely anything to save their babies, and that includes going up to the scary human predators who can hurt them in the hopes that these humans will help them instead. And this cat momma is no different - pregnant, hungry, and alone, she came up to the porch of some random person and begged for help. 

Thankfully, the human she approached saved her and her babies. 

Read more of the story below.

When one brings a new baby to a home full of animals, there is always some level of worry. We want our animals to love our babies; we want to see out cats cuddling our babies and our dogs cuddling our babies too. We want them to grow up to be best friends, but we can't help but be worried. Thankfully, most times, it seems that these precious first meetings lead to just that. 

The newest ICanHasCheezburger original animation by @sleepyskele portrays just that moment - the first meetings in the best possible version of them. It's an animation that will make you smile and want to being home a baby/an animal for your baby lol.

One of our favorite things to see in the animal world are animal families and the bonds they have. Animal mommas being stern yet loving, animal dads meeting their cubs for the first time, being playful yet protective, teaching them the ways of the world - these are always such precious moments. And these first family meetings are the most precious in our humble opinions - the moments of recognition and acceptance. 

This cat dad is meeting his newborn kittens for the first time in this video, and the love is instant - and not just between the dad and the kittens but also between the cat dad and the mom. It's wholesomeness galore, and you're not even ready for it.

Twitter Thread: Raccoon Mom And Babies Fall Through Roof And Cause Chaos

Imagine coming back home and finding your place trashed - the fear of a break-in, an intruder overtaking you. And then... you hear a small rustle coming from your closet and the funniest most ridiculous trash panda comes out and precedes to judge you. What would you do? Make a twitter thread about it of course. 

Because twitter is a place for occasional animal madness, and this raccoon and her babies falling through the roof into this person's house is just one example. Other people on twitter rescue a brain damaged bobcat whose favorite toy is fennel and others run out of food and attempt to feed their stray cats sunny-side-up eggs, causing them endles confusion. 

BTW, the raccoons have been taken and are totally fine, so feel free to laugh as much as your desires with no guilt lol.

If you have ever had any doubt in your mind about just how fierce teeny weeny kittens can be, this video of the tiniest most ferocious wild cat will convince you. Beware though! This video contains one of the most ferocious battles in the entirety of the animal kingdom - the epic fight between a tiny baby jaguar and its mother's ear. 

Yeah, we know, it can be too much for people who do not have the stomach for it, especially considering that the little baby loses. But even though it lost, it still proved just how ferocious it is with its sharp little murdermittens and totally unexpected jumping attacks. We will never underestimate tiny jaguars again, nor will we want to cuddle and pet them more than anything in the world.

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.

Abandoned Fawn Or Just Relaxing While Mom Run Errands (Video)

According to the National Wildlife Federation's blog, every springtime, they receive numerous calls and emails from concerned folks who believe they have discovered abandoned fawns.  'I found an abandoned fawn! Where can I take it? The answer is almost always the same: The fawn isn't abandoned and you should leave it right where it is.'

'Female deer hide their newborn fawns in tall grass or brush and move some distance away to feed to avoid drawing predators to their offspring. With the proliferation of deer in suburban areas, sometimes this happens right in our own yards. The fawn simply waits in hiding until its mother returns. Soon, the fawns will be strong enough to follow the does and run from predators, and they no longer need to spend hours alone in hiding.'

Listen, you're not even prepared for this explosion of cuteness and adorableness and- omg we're sO in love with this itty bitty fox cub. We love all foxes, don't get us wrong, all foxes are beautiful and majestic, but this tiny adorable white fox cub specifically is something else. 

She is one of the most adorable thieves, and she has stolen... some raspberries. Yeah, we know, we know, cutest thing in the world. She's the newest fox cub at SaveAFox rescue, and although she has only just started getting used to the other foxes and the location, clearly, she is more than comfortable enough to commit some crimes. No kidding, we're in love.

When it comes to cats, sometimes, the most random things can happen. From finding your cats sitting in a diner randomly to your cat deciding to sit in on your zoom call out of nowhere, to situations that are a bit more difficult than those, such as coming home and finding discovering that a cat has given birth under your bed. Not your cat either. Just some random cat. 

Inspired by true stories of cats giving birth in unexpected places, check out the newest animation by our resident cat person, @sleepyskele, about a guy adopting the litter a random cat gave birth to under his bed.
