Sweet Robin Couple Becomes Parents (Videos)

Hello to all and to all a good day! Boy, do we have a treat for you today! It's not every day we get to witness the miracle of new life being brought into this world. Birth and life in the animal kingdom looks veryyy different from our human world. The American Robin goes through the (not so simple!) process of laying and incubating eggs until their bird babies are ready to hatch and enter the world! Birds are awesome.

The American Robin is an icon of American springtime, known for their bright orange bellies and beautiful songs! Fun fact: the American Robin is the state bird for Connecticut, Michigan, and Wisconsin. These birds have clearly captured  the attention these states' residents, and today they've captured ours as well! Let's watch this magical process.

Twitter Thread: Cats Fascinated Yet Confused By Cooked Egg

This one is a unique story: a guy with a heart of gold who feeds the stray cats in his neighborhood has run out of cat-appropriate food to give to the little felines. Yet, because of his pure goodness, because of wanting to help the stray cats, he has done what he could and gave the cats an egg. Yes, a cooked sunny side up egg, but the cats... they were not expecting it. 

Of course, in the usual twitter style - hilarity ensues. It's not the first time we've come across. Once, we saw a thread about a twitter user who was chased by a cow on Valentines day, another time, we've read about a twitter user who resurrected a bird with her breasts. Twitter is full of amazing, hilarious stories, and this egg one is going on the 'Iconic' list.

Purrfectly Cooked Eggs In The Form Of Oranges On Cats (Tweets)

Cat have many talents, we know that. Those include staring at walls, sitting in anything that'll fit them, sleeping in the strangest positions, zooming in the middle of the night and many more. But apparently, white cats have an extra talent, and that is the ability to turn into a purrefctly cooked sunny side up egg with the help of but one accessory - an orange. 

Yes, we know, we were surprised too, but these tweets prove how talented these cats are. They are mildly annoyed white fluffballs, but they are very talented indeed. If you have a white sunny side up purrfect kitty, come share a pic of it with us right here!

Just when you think the world is missing a little kindness, you come across something that is so kind and so pure, and your faith is restored yet again. When one day, this man came across a parakeet egg inside of a cage in a pet store and found out that its mother had been sold, he did what many of us wish we had the strength to do - he took the egg home, cared for it, and helped this tiny parakeet hatch. 

So much care, time, and love has to be put into such an act of kindness. We are not only touched and thankful for this video and this person, we also find ourselves inspired to do something kind of others ourselves.

Jenny Jinya's Newest Comic About Heartbreak Is Based On A True Story

Jenny Jinya's newest comic has such writing this intro through a stream of tears. This time, Jinya has decided to make a comic out of a true story, a story from last year in which a swan had died of a broken heart due to some teens destroying her eggs. 

This comic seems to hurt more knowing it's based on such a sad and cruel story. The thought of anyone hurting any animal is difficult enough, people should be aware that their actions have consequences. And to those who destroyed this swan's eggs, you all should be ashamed. The mother-to-be had six eggs destroyed, leaving her utterly heartbroken and eventually lead to her death. Our hearts break a hundred times over reading this story and of course, seeing Jinya's emotional comic on the subject. 

Jinya creates comics about real issues animals faces such as suffering and abuse. Sometimes (or always), the comics are devastating and leave us in a pile of our own tears. Jinya has the gift of conveying important messages in an achingly haunting yet beautiful way. 

Be sure to have those tissues handy, folks, you're going to need them.

What would you do if a giant snapping turtle showed up in your backyard? Well, this family let it be, watching it through the windows, the kids really excited, naming her "Snippy". After a rough storm in the night, the father came out to check the damage and found what looked like little golf balls on his stairs. Turns out - Snippy left her eggs right there.

The family took care of the eggs, feeling a strong need to protect them and help nature. "It was like a Horton moment, you know?" the father laughs. The kids continued to be excited, and after the eggs hatched, they named every single one of the baby snapping turtles. It's so incredibly adorable - both the kids being so overjoyed and the baby turtles getting to not only live but being let go into the wild by the loving family.

Sea Turtles In Greece Are Thriving With Slow Tourism

At least the world still seems to be healing! 

In Greece, there is one area that is the most important nesting site for loggerhead turtles that live in the Mediterranean, and that is the beaches of Zakynthos. And thanks to this global crisis, there has never been such slow tourism as there is this summer. 

One thing we can continuously be grateful for is the animals who now have a window to thrive and lay their eggs in peace. 

Like many other popular tourist places, the beaches of Zakynthos are experiencing a rare moment of calm and that calmness has lead to a peak of the egg-laying season for Loggerhead turtles. 

Head of the Zakynthos program for the protection of loggerhead turtles. Charikleia Minotou, had this to say about the beautiful moment, "This is an opportunity for the turtles to return at their own pace, to fall in love, mate and give birth on the beaches, as dictated by their biology. The long-term impact of the current conditions, however, will only become apparent over time."

She also added that she hopes these two months of peace for the turtles don't "end up being a footnote in the story of the loggerhead turtles on the island."

We certainly hope so, too!

Heartwarming: People Are Giving Their Cats Eggs To See If They'll "Protect" Them

As cat people, we sometimes struggle to convince others that cats are actually nice. 

But this new trending challenge on TikTok might just be the proof we all needed.

The concept is simple: cat owners on TikTok are giving their kitties eggs to see if they'll "protect" them and then share the adorable results. 

The trend was presumably started by TikTok user @annao, since it was the earliest TikTok we could find.  

As expected, the results will give you the heart eyes.

Undisturbed Sea Turtles Lay 60 Million Eggs

Another uplifting story to come from this lock-down mess. As scary as times might be, there's still some beauty in this world and that beauty comes in the form of mother nature, reclaiming back her world. 

We've seen less air pollution, deers chilling in the streets of Japan, clear waters that brought back the return of certain sea life. And now, with Eastern India under lock-down, sea turtles who are famously vunerable and threatened by humans and our pollution, were left completely undisturbed to lay an estimate of 60 million eggs. 

That means hundreds of thousands olive tortoises reached the shore of Rushikulya beach and comfortably made their nests. 

So next time you're feeling down about the certain situation, remember these tortoises who were able to nest in complete tranquility this year. It might bring some sort of peace.
