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.

Tumblr Thread: Crocodile Dads Are The Best

We could never imagine that we'd ever say "awwww" about a crocodile. They are so scary, and omg, if we ever met one in real life, we would run away shaking. But, time and time again, the internet manages to convince us that these terrifying animals are not that bad. From the time that we all celebrated the 120th birthday of the oldest known Nile crocodile, to the time that we all giggled and laughed and felt embarrassed about the hilarious way that crocodiles actually look like underwater, to the time that we fell in love with crocodile skinks because they look like tiny dragons

And now, through this tumblr thread, we learn that crocodile dads are super protective of their little babies and carry them around on their backs - in groups of hundreds. It's adorable. Crocodiles are adorable. Shocking, right?

tumblr thread about crocodile dads carrying their babies | thumbnail includes a picture of a crocodile carrying many crocodile babies and a section of a tumblr post 'Water - kaijutegu Follow Everyone in the notes is saying mama, but that's dad. See the lump on his nose? Only males have those. It's actually where they got their name; the lumps tend to resemble earthenware cooking pots called ghara. What we're seeing here is a really good dad. This is par for the course for gharials, though-'

Dads Falling In Love With Pets They Didn't Want

A tale as old as time... The first act: dads insisting on not getting a pet. The second: dads complaining about the pet the family got and acting like they can barely tolerate it. Act three: finding your dad cuddling your new cat/dog on the couch... still acting like they can only barely tolerate them. 

Really, they should stop pretending, we all see through them. No one can withstand the power of the cute.

r/dadswhodidnotwantpets on Reddit is the ultimate proof of that, considering how many people share their stories on it. It's wholesomeness galore, heartwarming stories and nothing else, and as someone with a dad just like one of those, I love these stories more than anything.

A big ball of fluff meeting its baby ball of fluff, and the love is instant and strong in this video. Prepare for an overload of feels. 

A cat meeting his son for the first time, and no, there's no need to worry. Whatever worries you might have about a meeting like this were thrown out the window right away the moment these two looked at each other. The recognition was instantaneous, and the love came not a moment later. Not a hint of hostility, not a hint of fear, only wholesome love, sniffing, snuggles, patience, and so many head butts your heart will be fluttering with joy in no time. 

We have a feeling this is going to be one happy family

Be warned: this video is so full of dogs being happy, you will not be able to stop laughing. 


An adorable, happy, and super excited pooch got to meet his birth daddy for the first time, and it is the cutest meeting we've ever seen. The day, of course, starts off with the dog realizing that something exceptionally exciting is happening, and therefore, he simply has to do his heart-meltingly adorable happy dance.

Then, when the meeting with his dad finally happens, the pooch is so excited, he instantly pees himself. And it is the cutest thing in the world. The father and son hang out all day, and the joy pouring off the screen is unparalleled. If you feel even just a smidge of their joy yourself, you will be set for the whole of next year.

Oh, kittens... little balls of endless energy. Jumping around, running, curious about everything. How an energetic little creature like that turns into the most chill, lazy being is beyond us. And it's totally beyond this kitten's dad as well. 

He seems to understand though, letting his little kitten buzz around and be generally annoying and adorable. Or maybe he's just doing the cat thing and being totally unbothered by anything, including its own widdle kitten. Regardless, it's adorable, and we absolutely love both this kitten and its dad.

In every cub's life, there's an incredible moment - the moment they meet their dad for the first time. It's totally normal for them to be separate at first, and that makes for some of the cutest first time dad meeting ever. This meeting goes as good as it could, and it's totally adorable. 

The dad roars at them a couple times, and they jump back - the big lion is intimidating, that's true, but he's also a perfect gentleman. He just has to show them how to be a proper fierce lion. And the little cubs are happy, excited, and playful. And adorable. Don't forget adorable. The big bad terrifying lion dad is also kind of really adorable, not gonna lie. 

Now, the mom is not going to have to protect her babies alone, and the pride is going to be stronger than ever. Of course, the little hooligans will keep up their shenanigans, but dad's gonna make sure that they know exactly how to be the fiercest, scariest (and cutest) lions around.
