Not every animal is born into the best of circumstances. Nature can be difficult like that. In the wild, unfortunately, baby animals can lose their mothers and be left alone. Many of them don't survive, but some of them... find themselves in the hands of people who will do anything to save them. 

Such is the story of Tohar the cow. She had lost her momma when she was only 8 days old, but thankfully, she found her way to Shanti farm where other disabled animals get rescued and find forever homes. But, that's not where her story Tohar's story ends. This wonderful girl has turned out to have endless love for other animals, and has, over time, become a sort of surrogate momma to them, taking them under her wing and giving them all the love that she can.

Thread: When A Human Gets Adopted By A Feral Cat

Pet adoption stories are always the most wholesome stories to read. Walking into a shelter and falling in love or helping a friend by taking a kitten from a newborn litter... it's our favorite kind of stories. Well, second favorite. Because what takes the number one spot for us are stories of the opposite, not of us humans adopting a pet but stories of pets adopting humans.

The story of the no-longer-feral cat that you're about to read is just like that. All it took was some love (and a little food) for a totally feral cat to decide that this human is its now. And being that we are too in love with cats for this world, this person had simply no choice but to take this kitty into its home. The rest... well, it's history. Very wholesome history. 

imgur thread about a feral cat adopting a human | thumbnail includes two pictures includes one of three feral cats and another of a cat sitting in a funny way in a car 'Was at a hotel for work when I saw a group of stray cat friends hanging out. I couldnt get close until I came back with a bunch of whopper patties. After some junk food one followed me all the way to my hotel room. I was chosen. So checkoutmypearlywhitesraaaaaaaarrrr'

Some of the teeniest tiniest animals out there will surprise you by just how fierce they can be. For example, did you know that the smallest wild cat in America is the cat with the higher kill success rate? Yeah, tiny doesn't mean not lethal. 

We bet you didn't think that chipmunks belonged to this group of animals, but oh, these itty bitty chipmunks are about to prove you wrong. They have taken it upon themselves to have a battle with un unspeakably terrifying enemy - a strawberry pot. Yeah, we're not kidding. They laid siege to those strawberries and battled them to the very end. Thankfully, the chipmunks won, but the strawberries definitely put up a fight. It was almost as intense of a fight as the one between the ferocious baby jaguar against its momma's ear

Have you ever heard of a rat that is also an acrobat? Neither had we! Until today when we stumbled upon this silly news story courtesy of BBC News. "A rat with rather impressive acrobatic skills has been filmed scaling a washing line to get to some bird feeders. Melissa Paterson, 26, spotted the tightrope-walking rodent in her Norfolk garden early one July morning."

"She said it had been in and out of her garden for a while working out how to reach the feeders. They were moved to the clothes line after it successfully scaled a bird feeder pole. 'I've never seen one scale a washing line like it's walking a tightrope,' Ms Paterson said." We are seriously impressed with this agile rat's efforts to secure some extra sustenance.

Hiya folks! Today we stumbled across a little slice of cuteness in the form of a video of two otters trying cherries for the first time and felt obliged to share it  with all of you! We've met this otter sibling duo before! These videos by YouTube user KOTSUMET always put a smile on our faces. KOTSUMET lives in Japan and owns two Asian Small-Clawed Otters named Hana and Kotaro.

This video starts off in the cooler as these two sweet otters take a well deserved chill bath, it's a hot day! These two enjoy a nice float in the cooler for awhile, before being introduced to the mysterious round fruit that drives them crazy! They start to investigate the cherries, feeling them out, giving them sniffs, and trying to understand them. Check out the video to see their reactions!

Brave Mom Cat Runs Into Burning Barn To Save Her Kittens

For mothers, living in the animal kingdom is an extra difficult task. Having to look for food, fend for themselves as they hunt, find shelter, all while keeping their babies safe. The motherly instinct is strong. It's no wonder, then, that animal momma are loving yet stern. They have to do what needs to be done to protect their babies, even if it means saving them from danger at risk to themselves. 

That is what one momma cat had to do - running into a burning barn to save her kittens. According to Cole & Marmalade, the barn was this cat's home. She and her babies had been living on that farm for a while, and sadly, when the structure caught fire, her babies were still inside.

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'

Heartwarming Stories Of Cats Adopting Humans

Every single one of us, cat owners, has a story to tell about how we chose and adopted our fur babies. Some of us rescued our cats from terrible lives on the street, others went into a shelter to pick up a kitten then ended up changing our minds and adopting a senior pet. and some of us... well, some of us didn't choose at all and were instead picked by the cats. 

Last week, our purrfect ICanHasCheezburger users shared some of their stories with us - stories of cats adopting them, and they were so cute and wholesome, we simply had to share them with all of you guys as well. Thank you to everyone who shared, and we hope that your cats have the absolute best lives living with their humans of choice

Facebook comments about cats adopting humans | thumbnail includes one Facebook comment 'Font - Patrick Califia One of my roommates acquired a cat on Thanksgiving. She and both of her pit bulls were in a food coma. The cat, who was feral, walked in (stepping on the dogs), climbed up on the table and ate a bunch of Turkey, then sashayed into the living room and fell asleep snuggled up to her.
