Heartwarming Story Of A Survivor Brain Damaged Cat Goes Viral

Taking care of animals with health issues or behavior issues is always a challenge. It's hard to watch an innocent animal like that suffer when all you want is for them to be the happiest in the world. That difficulty, of course, is no reason to give up on them. And imgur user KDC0982 definitely didn't. 

The story of Gimli is a difficult one to read, but thanks to everything that KDC0982 has done for him, he is now much healthier and is happily getting cuddles on the couch with KDC0982's dad. Gimli is an absolute hero in our eyes, and his story is inspiring. We're so happy to see that he's better, and we wish he will get even better as he continues to live in this warm home.

Tumblr Posts Proving That Cats Are Not Cold-Hearted

If you're a cat owner, then you know that the myth about cats being cold is wrong. Cats are just misunderstood because for some reason they're always compared to dogs. They have a different way of showing affection, but that doesn't mean that they don't have feelings. 

Tumblr cat owners know that well, and after a post about the most amazing cat went viral, they began sharing their own stories as well, and they are all so heartwarming and beautiful. Cats are amazing, they are not cold-hearted at all, and if you think that they don't have feelings, you are very, very wrong. These stories prove as much

tumblr posts proving that cats are not cold thumbnail includes one tumblr post 'Font - catpda Follow how can ppl say cats dont have feelings like. when my cat got deadly sick she refused to eat a single thing and it had been days but when i started crying she ate just a little bit, and upon seeing how happy it made me, kept doing it whenever she could. now whenever im sad or crying she finds wherever i am with a mouthful of food and eats the pieces one by one, every time looking up at me making'

Pony And Horse Stuck In Mud For 18 Hours Get Rescued

A horse and a pony were stuck in chest-deep mud near Salinas, Calif., for up to 18 hours during a storm, before finally being rescued. It took a lot of work, and many amazing people joined in helping these horses, thankfully helping these animals get back to safety.

SFGATE reports that the two animals got stuck "on Wednesday night on Limekiln Road, off River Road in an area south of Salinas where a flood of mud rushed down a saturated hillside this week after a powerful storm drenched the River Fire burn scar." Thankfully, the moment the owners of the property spotted the horses, they immediately flagged down passing firefighters and called the SPCA

Not only that but neighbors also responded to the call, coming with shovels and other tools, all in the hopes of helping to dig out the horses and help them. "It definitely took a village to get these horses out," said a Monterey County SPCA spokesperson, Beth Brookhouser. 

The two horses were, of course, very cold after being immobilized in the muck throughout the night, and it took hours for them to stop shivering. They were treated overnight by Steinbeck Country Equine Clinic veterinarians, said SPCA officials. By Friday, "[b]oth horses were recovering on Friday, and were eating and drinking." 

The area remains dangerous for now, but at least this pony and horse are safe - thank s to everyone involved in the rescue. We want to thank all of the people helping these creatures, and if you're interested in more wholesome and heartwarming animal stories, take a look at the 30 most positive animal news stories of January!

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.

Heartwarming Tweets Of Children Sleeping Next To Cats

Is there anything that makes you happier than when your pet shows you love, trust and affection? Personally, it's one of the things that makes me the happiest in the world. One of the best ways to see that love and affection, of course, is when your kitty comes to sleep in your bed at night. It's a show of trust not just from the cat but from you too, closing your eyes next to each other like that, and that only brings the two of you closer. 

Having your cat curl up next to you is one of the purest, most wholesome things in the world, but seeing your baby curled up with your cat might be even more cuter. Prepare yourself, the cat tweets you're about to see are so cute and heartwarming you might just get an inexplicable urge to immediately go hug your cat.

Overly Affectionate Cat Doesn't Understand Personal Space (Viral Thread)

Whoever started the rumor that cats are not affectionate clearly has never owned a cat. Cats are very affectionate - they just choose their preferred times for being affectionate, and they're picky with who they love, just like we are. It's part of what makes us love them so much. When a cat is affectionate with you, you've earned it, and for that, it feels so much better. 

This cat who went viral on imgur is one who is so affectionate, his owner ItsMoni is even calling him overly affectionate with no perception of personal space. And the internet, as have we, has fallen in love with this cat. Because it's almost as wholesome and heartwarming to watch a cat love its owner as it is to be loved by one yourself.
