Finally, after years and years, an elderly dog gets to chase a squirrel for the first time, and we have never seen anything more heartwarming. Its reaction to its owner repeatedly saying the word "squirrel" at him is the so human - from confusion to understanding to disbelief and then to pure, unadulterated joy. And the joy of a senior dog is unparalleled to anything else. 

It's enough for something as small and innocent as chasing a squirrel to bring energy and light into the eyes of a dog. And this video, while adorable and funny, will also make you want to get out the tissue box.

Tumblr Thread: Cats' Adorable Reactions To Meeting Baby Human

One can never help but worry what their pet's reaction is going to be when bringing an itty bitty newborn human home. We want them to be best friends, we want them to love each other, but for the pet, this milk-smelling mini human is even stranger than us large humans. And the whole thing is even more worrisome for someone who has more than one pet.

For Tumblr user dedalvs, for a moment, it looked like the worst was going to happen. After one of her cats very curiously came up to her baby and sniffed it, the baby started wailing, and the cat was petrified. Thankfully, his sibling cat was there to put him in his place.

You know how Siberian cats are some of the most magnificent, floofy cats to ever exist? That's right. Now, what would make such an already majestic cat even more majestic?

It's Sir Locksley, also known as The Lox or Locksdown, enjoying his natural habitat, and he has made the very best of it. And so has his owner, of course, by taking pictures capturing his magnificence. So, thank you CharlotteFTW, for taking a majestic floof and making it extra majestic.

Are you ready for a double explosion of cute? Well, prepare yourself because you're getting not one but two - yes two - tiny baby stoats, and they're meeting each other for the first time. Their reaction to meeting one of their own for the first time is the most adorable thing in the world. They're just so excited, so happy, so instantly friendly and loving. 

Stoats are one of these relatively unknown animals that we feel never get enough love, so this is an opportunity to give stoats some of the love that they deserve. They're so cute, so quick, so energetic, and their cuteness should not be underestimated- as you're about to see.

Well, unfortunately, quarantine is not just for humans, and these two kittens have been in it for the past two weeks. They've been living right next to each other, seeing and learning one another from afar, but today, the barrier between them FINALLY gets knocked down, and they get to meet. 

Their meeting goes purrfectly, of course. The itty bitty kittens walk around each other's spaces, steal each other's food, sniff each other from head to toe, and wrestle each other to the ground. We think it's love. Though the two have never gotten to play with another kitten before, they definitely seem to know what they're doing, and they look so happy together

I don't know about you, but I understand why a huge, enormous puppy would be afraid of a tiny kitten. I mean, yes, you'd think it would make more sense for the opposite to be true, which it most times is, but I totally understand why the dog would be afraid of the kitten. Us, cat people, know exactly how fierce even the smallest kittens can be, and the dog can clearly sense that.

The German shepherd is excited, of course it is, but it is also adorably intimidated, barking and sniffing, and generally trying to asses the kitten's level of fierce. And though we can't explain why, we think these two will be BFFs in the future.

Meowmoirs: Meeting A Dog (January 8, 2021)

Earnie is about to meet a dog face to face, and it is a shocking experience for him. The dog is just... so unintelligent in Earnie's eyes. I mean, he ate the couch once, how could Earnie think otherwise?

Meowmoirs: "I've named him Bork as that seems to be one of the only words he's capable of producing."

Read about Earnie's impression of the dog, and the reluctant love he develops for Bork. He may be big, and his tail is very dangerous, but he does give good ear licks.

Read the previous entry of Earnie experiencing catnip for the first time here!

Is there anything more heart-wrenchingly adorable than kittens opening their eyes for the first time? The innocence. The wholesomeness. The purity. Our hearts can barely handle it. And in this video, there are so many tiny squeaky adorable widdle kittens who are literally seeing the whole world for the first time, we might just completely melt.

12 days after their birth, almost all of the kittens finally have their little eyes open, and we are thrilled. The mom is purring, the kittens look calm, and they snuggle each other and mom for warmth, making our hearts warmer in turn.

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.

Two baby creatures meeting for the first time, could anything be cuter? This most wholesome video of a puppy meeting a baby for the first time went viral, and we can totally see why. The baby is so smol, and the puppy is so, so, so gentle with it. 

The puppy must know, somehow, that this tiny human is fragile and must be treated with a gentle paw. And the most gentle kisses and bites. All dogs seem to know that human babies need to be given extra special and loving care, but this puppy just takes over your heart without even trying. And the baby loves the puppy, because who wouldn't?

Tiny but ferocious, this little kitten is experiencing The Box for the first time. The kitten fights it and beats it like the warrior that the kitten is. And then the big cats show up, and it becomes a whoooole box party. 

Because the love for boxes is not just a kitten thing, it's not just for these energetic youngsters, the love of the box belongs to all cats, big or small. The kitten will eventually learn that a box is not merely a toy, it's also the best place to chill in. And these larger cats are about to start teaching the kitten exactly that.
