One universal truth that everyone can seemingly agree on -- cats hate water. 

Maybe not all cats, but about 99.8% do. 

In that .02%, there's Odin. Odin is a gorgeous white tiger who not only likes to swim -- he LOVES it. Odin spends a majority of his time in the water! He enjoys it so much that he even hunts in the water. 

Thanks to Kritter Klub for the awesome footage!

Woman And Orangutan Share Beautiful Moment Together As She Breastfeeds

Gemma Copeland was left in tears after visiting Schoenbrunn Zoo in Vienna, Austria. 

While in the orangutan enclosure, Copeland realized her son, 15-month-old Jasper, was hungry. She sat down against the glass to breastfeed him when a female orangutan, named Sol, who had been watching Copeland intently, comes to sit beside her.. as if protecting her as she breastfeeds. 

Sadly, Sol had previously given birth to a stillborn infant. 

Copeland was moved to tears by the gesture, writing, "She looked directly into my eyes then placed her hand up as if to touch my son. I was in awe of this beautiful creature already. My son wanted feeding and as it was quiet I fed him whilst I sat there. The way the orangutan reacted took my breath away she kept looking at me, then my son then back again.

She sat with me for approximately half an hour, and kept stroking the glass and lay down next to me as if to support and protect me. I was absolutely gobsmacked and got quite a crowd of people turning up to see what was going on – people were sat watching quietly and respectfully. It was really lovely and I didn't want to leave – it felt incredible and I was crying so much because I couldn't take it in.

I had to share this because my mind was blown, we may be a species apart but breastfeeding connected us today in a once in a lifetime moment that will stay with me forever."

Sol undoubtably had a strong connection to this mother and her child. Orangutans are such gentle and loving souls, Sol is an example of that love.

Jubilee is a Siberian husky with a unique and unforgettable bug-eyed stare -- which has since made her viral! Reddit user, u/critterwalk, share Jubilee's picture with the Reddit community, with the title, "This is Jubilee. She just happens to look like bad taxidermy."

Thanks to her cartoon-ish eyes, Jubilee was made into an internet star overnight! 

Before her stardom, it was difficult to find someone to take Jubilee home with them, her caretakers at Husky House wrote in a Facebook post in her voice:

"Huskies are majestic looking dogs and I don't know why I don't look like them,I wish I was beautiful so someone would want me to be their dog."

If that doesn't hit you right in the feels, you might want to go to a doctor to make sure you're human. 

Thanks to Jubilee's sudden stardom, her adorable face was being shared countless times and finally landed her a forever home!

Woman Turns Sentimental Clothes Into 'Memory Bears'

This is such a wonderful and beautiful way of celebrating memories and holding onto them forever. 

Mary Macinnes has come up with this heartwarming idea and makes Teddy bears from old clothes of people's loved ones, including pets, to help people preserve their precious memories. In Macinnes own words, she sums up what is a 'Memory Bear,' "Memory Bears are special bears made from clothing that belonged to a special person in your life and a way to keep the essence of a loved one close by. They are comforting to children & adults and loved by those who appreciate the memorial tribute and connection to their loved on." 

Macinnes usually spends 5-6 hours planning, cutting, creating & sewing each bear, and each one is beautiful and full of memories.

If you're still looking for that perfect gift to give for the holidays. or just in general, a memory bear would make quite a memorable gift.

Blind Bison Makes First Friend After Years Of Solitude

A blind bison named Helen has been roaming the fields of Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary for years, all alone. This was due to the fact that Helen had nervous disposition, she purposely would separate herself from other animals. 

Until now. Oliver, a young Jersey calf has fought his way into Helen's heart with his gentle and kind manner. Since being introduced to Oliver, Helen and Oliver have been inseparable. They do everything together, so much so, that Oliver's fur has even changed in shade to match Helens!

Gwen Jakubisin, at the Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, told USA Today, "The change in [Helen's] demeanor is incredible, her joy is palpable."

With around 250 farm animals currently at the sanctuary, Helen has slowly started to reach other to other animals and is extending her social circle -- all thanks to her new courageous friendship with Oliver. 

Helen has also become something of a surrogate mum for Oliver. Jakubisin said, "Betsy (Oliver's mom) usually drops Oliver off at "daycare" and roams around while Helen watches over him for the rest of day, and she's cool with that. I catch them grooming each other, which is amazing because I don't think Helen has ever had that opportunity to express that motherly instinct before." 

We all need love. No matter what shape or form it comes in. And Helen and Oliver is simply further proof of that. 

Here's to you, Helen and Oliver! We adore your unlikely friendship and have learned from it.
