Thread: Affectionate And Goofy Scissor-Beak Chicken Strives For Best Life

Not every animal is born the same. Not every animal goes through the same experiences. And whether it's experiences that caused it to become 'imperfect', like the bobcat who was dropped on its head by a hawk as a kitten and whose favorite toy is now fennel or the dog who was previously mistreated for barking slowly learning to bork again. Or if it's some disorder, like the disabled goldfish that couldn't swim because of a bout of swim bladder. 

All these animals deserve a second chance at life, and every person who gives it to them is a hero. 

grrumble on imguris our newest hero. Dory is a chicken born with a condition called scissor-beak or cross-beak, and though she's a fighter and always strives for a better life, without grrumble, Dory would not have made it. We're truly thankful, from the bottom of our hearts that you heled save this poor helpless creature, and we hope that you guys live a long, happy life together.

Even as it progressed, she still strived- it felt like overnight how quickly it worsened... my dang bleeding heart couldn’t give up on her and I’m so glad I didn’t grrumble'

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'

There are times in the animal world where animals make such unique families and friendships with each other, and this is one of the newest, most wholesome ones. This amazing hen has taken a whole lotta newborn kittens under its wings (literally) and has been taking care of them alongside their cat momma.

Even cat moms need a break sometimes, and trusting their babies with another animal is a challenge. But, the absolutely unique interspecies friendship created between these two animals is strong enough to withstand their differences and give us one of the most heartwarming family videos we've seen in a while.

Birds are hilarious. They do so many things that we think are absolutely ridiculous and amazing: from pigeons loving bedtime so much, they decide to put themselves to sleep, to parrots being the biggest jerks who have no sense of self-preservation, whatever birds do somehow manages to make us laugh. Especially when they're talking birds. Some of the things they say have us losing it.

And this gorgeous little round birb has something very important to say. Or rather, it has someone very important to imitate, sometimes successfully and other time less so - a chicken. And we're in love, even with the most unsuccessful of its attempts.

When it comes to fluff, the bigger the better. To pet and cuddle our pets or animals we see in the wild is one of the greatest pleasures one earth. I pity those who are allergic to fur. They have no idea what they're missing! Holding the fluffiest furball you can find and not knowing where the fur ends, and the bodies begin… just one of life's treasures to be honest.

Below are 12 of the fluffiest and cutest animals on the planet! Some are animals that you can find in a home. Some you can only enjoy from a distance. And frankly, I would try my luck anyway just to get a handful of that fur. So fluffy!

Meet Ronnie, the sassiest rooster in the world. This beautiful rooster has one day simply walked into this couple's home and decided that it's his now, and well... they didn't argue. So now, he's part of the family. 

He loves attentions, sitting on the ceiling fan, and crowing at totally random times. The mirror confuses him, he runs after balls when his owners throw them for the dogs, and he doesn't like being alone. 

It's a strange addition to the family, even the dog seems to think that way, but Ronnie looks like he's loving it, his presence brings them joy, and that's what matters. He's also the ultimate proof that roosters are pretty heckin' cool.

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.

Tumblr Thread: Gentleman Rooster Always Lets Lady Friends Eat First

Well, today, we are looking at an unlikely tumblr story by the tumblr user samandriel. One that we feel could easily be made into a Disney movie. It's the story of Pharaoh, a pet rooster who is a little funny. 

He has the habit of crowing not when the sun rises but rather when he hears humans get up. And he's an absolute gentleman, always letting his many lady hen friends eat snacks first. Unless it's blueberries. Blueberries are serious business. His worst fear is plastic bags, but he will protect his owner from them. And he loves - absolutely loves - cuddles. 

Tumblr stories are always some of our favorites, since they can be funny, wholesome, or totally random, and this one is up there with some of our absolute favorites. 

tumblr thread and posts about a rooster who always lets hens eat snacks first unless its blueberries thumbnail includes a picture of a rooster and the caption 'Text - samandriel Follow the same rooster - god guys he's so cute - he always lets hens eat treats first and won't have any treats until they've had as much as they want, unless it's a blueberry. shit, blueberries are like serious fucking business for Pharaoh. he's a gentleman until the damn blueberries come out and then he don't play no'

We were first introduced to this adorable orange kitten, Pixel, in the 'most dangerous kitten in the world' video. After realizing that title was dead on, being that Pixel is so overwhelmingly cute that he can kill us due to cuteness overload, we then saw this munchkin meet a baby chick and interact with it. 

It's safe to say Pixel has stolen our hearts and has no plans on returning it.

And now, we have the pleasure of viewing the cutest naptime video of all, Pixel and baby chick. Soak it in, folks, it doesn't get any better than this.

Yup. we're not kidding. Someone actually thought this idea up and decided -- "I need to make this." We're still unsure how we feel about it, though. We will say one thing about it, it's interesting.

We are simple people. We don't understand many things in this world but we do know we want to see a chicken sitting on a cat's head. 

Don't ask us why there is no answer. And furthermore, we know you want to see it, too.

This is one super chill cat to deal with this nonstop moving chick all day! The cat who obviously wants to nap doesn't show any signs of annoyance or aggression.

Our goals in life? To be as zen as this cat.

After losing her baby chicks, this mother hen has taken in seven little critters into her care: 5 ducklings and 2 Totenko Fowl chicks. This mama has her work cut out for her! 

Protective and caring, this mother hen is turning out to be the best mother these other little critters could've ever hoped for! 

Don't believe us? Watch how these chicken dotes on the ducklings and how the ducklings flock to her -- instead of their actual birth mother. 

Maternal instinct comes to naturally this caring chicken.
