Get ready for one of the most heartwarming rescue stories you've ever seen. After being abandoned by its birth family, this itty bitty kitten was left all alone. Luckily, he found himself in good hands and was not only rescued but also taken into the most loving forever home. 

Of course, the transition was not the easiest, it takes time for cats, even as young as this one, to get used to their new surroundings. But eventually, this little fluffball realized that what he had, both with this human and with the rest of his cats, is something incredibly special - it is a big, loving, wholesome family

If we know anything about these adorable overgrown wolf goofballs is that when wolves love, they love hard. This heartwarming video captures just that. With the snow covering everything around these two wolves in The Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, the male cleans snow off his lovely mate, disregarding the fact that he himself is covered in snow too. 

Grooming her in this way not only strengthens their familial bond but it's also an intimate gesture that reaffirms their unique bond as mates. Their love helps us appreciate the love we have surrounding us a bit more too, and really, we can only hope to have as loving a relationship as theirs.

Meowmoirs: Time to Say Goodbye (February 12, 2021)

Now that Earnie is finally happy, having made friends with his humans, their baby, a kitten and even a dog, he has decided that... it's time for a break. He is content to get older, surrounded by love, and simply enjoy the good life... at least for a while. Who knows? Perhaps he'll make a comeback one day, or Mittens will start writing a diary of her own. 

Meowmoirs: getting nostalgic. 

Read Earnie's final diary entry where he looks back on his past, talks about his new friends (and possible successors to his throne) and fills every line he writes with love, love, some shenanigans, and more love.

After three whole years apart, two wild horses get reunited, and it's the most heartwarming reunion you've ever seen. You might think that they wouldn't recognize each other after such a long time apart, but they did - instantly. 

The male horse got adopted first, and though he was well taken care of, he had a hard time getting used to the new place and making friends. As his owner explains, it was clear as day that something was missing for him, that he had missed his family. So, the amazing owner spent years looking for a female horse who was in a picture she had with the male horse, and after three years, she accidentally found her. 

All it took was for the male to hear the sound of the female to come running to her, and from there on, it was like these amazing horses were never separated at all.

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.

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.

Awwdorable Pics Of Blended Family (16 Images)

We don't quite know what to make of this special family but all we know is that we're obsessed and need more. 

Bob and Marley are both golden retrievers with a huge Instagram following, and they also have a huge family. And when we say family, we don't mean a bunch of little golden pups running around. We mean a blended family, a family that consists of multiple birds, and a hamster. What's the most impressive thing about this unique family is their calm interaction with each other. So calm that their owner can line them us for incredible photographs like the images below. 

You can follow this adorable family on Instagram for even more incredible moments!

Elephants are just truly one of the most incredible animals to ever walk the Earth. 

Just the way they look out and care for one another is tremendous. We could really learn a lot from them. 

This video was captured in Kruger National Park in South Africa. The footage shows the baby elephant stuck in a mud bank and the moment the herd rushed over to help this adorable baby up and out. They're family and family means... "no one gets left behind."

Yes, we quoted Lilo & Stitch but it just seemed really appropriate here.
