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.

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.

Here is something you don't tend to see every day, a rabbit hanging out with a bunch of baby chicks! Seems like a scene out of a children's book! What could be going through this rabbit's mind as he sits happily beside all these baby chicks? We have some ideas. One, this could be the result of not delivering Easter eggs on time. Or perhaps this rabbit now sees itself as a parent. 

We don't know much about what's going on in this video but we do know that it makes me smile, and feel quite peaceful within. We're hoping it does the same for you.

Before And After Adoption: Garbage Pile Kitten

Every little kitten matters - whether it's one you found in a shelter, one that followed you home from the street or one that your neighbors accidentally found in their burn tile. All the little furballs deserve a chance at a good life in an incredible forever home. This little garbage kitten thankfully found a home just like that.

Imgur user MickDuncher shares the story of their adopted kitten - before and after adopting here, and it is so positive and wholesome it makes our hearts soar. The baby is living with another rescued garbage kitty who's her BFF and am unspecified number of dogs, one of whom she hugs falls asleep on every single night. 

Yes, it really is that cute.

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!

Rehabilitating A Baby Bobcat Is An Adventure (Imgur Posts)

We all know that taking care of baby animals is a lot of work; helping them get used to their environment and the people around them. But taking care of baby wild animals is even more challenging, and imgur user hereyougobacon71, who's helped rehabilitate animals previously, shows us exactly why that is. 

Working to rehabilitate a baby bobcat turned out to be quite a challenge - with the kitty showing off its fierceness with biting and playing and... climbing and claiming the washing machine and... climbing into hereyougobacon71's pants. Yeah, it's not what hereyougobacon71 expected either, which only makes it more entertaining. 

The cub will, of course, be released into the wild after its rehabilitation, but for now, we are really enjoying watching it grow up to be the fiercest of all kittens. 

Was found in a pile of brush. No mother, no tracks, nothing... Each day she gets a little and little more brave. Just watch your toes. Only 6 weeks old. - hereyougobacon71

CPR Revives Baby Elephant, It Returns To Its Mother Safely

An off-duty rescue worker in Thailand, a few days ago, was faced with one of his most challenging situations yet. Having been called in while off duty on a road trip late on Sunday evening, Mana Srivate had to perform CPR on a baby elephant that was hit by a motorcycle while crossing the road. The elephant can be seen lain on its side while Mana gives it two-handed compressions as Mana's collogues take care of the dazed and injured motorcycle rider.

As CNN reports, "[b]oth the rider and elephant were recovering and neither had serious injuries". Mana, recalling the incident, told Reuters by phone: "It's my instinct to save lives, but I was worried the whole time because I can hear the mother and other elephants calling for the baby."

"I assumed where an elephant heart would be located based on human theory and a video clip I saw online," he added. "When the baby elephant starting to move, I almost cried."

It took almost 10 minutes for the baby elephant to get back up again, but it did. It was quickly taken to another location to be treated, and as soon as possible, it was returned to the scene of the accident in hopes of reuniting it with its family. And in a true Christmas miracle way, the baby elephant was later spotted with a fully grown elephant that is presumed to indeed be its mother. 

A happy ending to what could have ended as an absolutely heart wrenching story, and we can only thank Mana for his incredible work saving the baby elephant. For more amazing animal stories, check out our recap of the most positive animal stories of 2020!

Extremely Rare White Lion Quadruplets Cubs Make Public Debut

Be still our beating hearts! If these images aren't the most darling images you'll see all day...

On November 6th, four white lion cubs were born at the Nantong Forest Safari Park in Jiangsu, in east China. The cubs, all males, are expected to make their very first public debut this upcoming Saturday. Images below show the cubs playing with one another and being pampered by the safari park keepers, and quite honestly, it may just be too much cuteness to handle! 

Interesting fact, native to South Africa, there are currently only 13 known white lions in the wild today. Their rare fur color is caused by a genetic mutation, according to the Global White Lion Protection Trust

We're wishing these beautiful cubs a long and healthy life!

Two baby creatures meeting for the first time, could anything be cuter? This most wholesome video of a puppy meeting a baby for the first time went viral, and we can totally see why. The baby is so smol, and the puppy is so, so, so gentle with it. 

The puppy must know, somehow, that this tiny human is fragile and must be treated with a gentle paw. And the most gentle kisses and bites. All dogs seem to know that human babies need to be given extra special and loving care, but this puppy just takes over your heart without even trying. And the baby loves the puppy, because who wouldn't?

Get ready. Because this video has double the tiny and therefore double the cute. It's a video of itty bitty kittens meeting and hanging out with an itty bittier chicken. Yeah, we know, the cuteness is overwhelming just thinking about it. 

But you must watch this video with us, you can't not. There are only so many times in our lives where we could come across a friendship this precious. So, we are all going to take a deep breath and watch this video despite the fear of a cuteness overload, and we will appreciate this double-dose of cuteness together.
