Cat With 'Double Claws' Getting Double The Love (Viral Thread)

All of us are a little bit different, that's perfectly normal. The exact same can be said about cats. Some of them can be unique just like us, whether they're cats born with two noses, born as incredibly large kittens that just keep growing, or - as is the case of this adorable viral kitten - if they have double claws. 

It's important to give love to the animals around us even if they're a little bit different, and Ecothyrus on imgurhas definitely done that. We're always happy to hear stories of people adoption senior animals, sick animals or animals with traumas or behavioral issues. These stories are the most heartwarming of all, and we love each and every one of them, including the one about this double-clawed cat.

How It Started Vs How It's Going: Heartwarming Animal Glow Ups

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then these adorable photographs have a lot to say! When it comes to 'before' and 'after' animal photos, sometimes the story is what truly makes the images more powerful and wonderful. Sometimes the story comes across and sometimes it doesn't. To see an animal start out small and shy and end up big and confident is truly a magical thing. 

All of these before and after photos show growth. Some are hilarious scenarios. Some are inspiring. And some are just heartwarming! And who out of us cannot get a kick out of these beautiful darlings!? Surely, no one.

Wholesome Cat Memes For An Additional Dose Of Joy

As a proud cat-mom, I love seeing other people's love of cats. Cats can sometimes get a bad rep and it is truly a shame because then people are missing out on the entire experience of loving and enjoying cats. They are hilarious, sweet, smart, and curious creatures. This is why seeing cat memes and online content celebrating and enjoying cats is so heartwarming!

Below are some wholesome cat memes that brightened up my day and I thought might brighten yours. I laughed out loud (and even sometimes snorted/chuckled) at some of these typical cat behaviors. Some of these memes laugh with cats as well as their owners; because frankly, when we love something so much, it sometimes makes us do wacky things.

Big Bad Wolves Being Their Affectionate Goofball Selves

Wolves are dangerous, yes, we know. But we're animal lovers, so we know better than to fall for the stereotype of the big bad wolf. Wolves may be dangerous, but so are adorable big wild cats, and we think they're cute too. Amazingly, the big bad wolf is incredibly affectionate, and in general, wolves are the biggest goofballs ever


Wolves are basically overgrown doggos, so it totally makes sense that we love them so much. We can only hope to one day meet a wolf friendly enough who will actually give us permission to pet its belly. That would be a total dream come true.

Animals Hugging Each Other Reminding Of The Good In The World

January 21st is the actual annual date of National Hug Day. Although frankly, if we are being honest, this should be a much more common sort of day. Kind of like a Friday. Hugging should happen more often and amongst more people (only if the people actually agree to it, of course- consent is important!). When animals hug, it bursts into our brains as if we are being hugged ourselves. It is so sweet and heartwarming, that I'm pretty much convinced we should make it a regular holiday.

We have here raccoons, dogs, cats, reptiles, seals, dolphins, and bunnies! My goodness, are there any animals even missing? There are mixed-species hugs and homogenized-species hugs. We can learn a thing or two from these darlings. Love is a powerful thing and these little guys show us exactly why.

12 Pictures Of Animals Using Each Other As Pillows

Sometimes we have to lean on each other in order to make it through the day, the week, and even the year. This can happen emotionally but also, of course, physically. Animals often find this comfort as well in hugging each other and sleeping with each other in a cuddling position. Sometimes, we need a friend to be our pillow. No matter the weather, Randy Newman's "You've Got a Friend in Me" will be playing in the back of our minds whenever we see animals hugging it out. 

Below you will find otters, cats, dogs, and even rats (hey, that rhymed!). Love has no boundaries, even in the animal world, as you all will be able to see. The utter sweetness is so massive it can give you a toothache. Get ready to visit the dentist.

Below are 12 pictures of dogs who treat themselves and know how to do it right! Come rain or shine, these dogs have their blankies and they look darn cute as well. What's better than having fur? Having fur surrounding your fur.

Tiny Helpless Calf Gets Rescued And Learns How To Love Humans And Hugs

When it comes to farm animals, no matter how cute they are, people don't try to save them as much, even when they clearly need help. Thankfully, there are places like the Shanti farm, who open their hearts to exactly these kinds of animals. They take in not only animals with difficult cases but also animals who others would normally not take at all, like disabled cats, horses that were thrown away after they were too tired or old to be ridden, hurt sheep, and the hero of our story today - a little 8-day-old baby calf. It was found near a calf who was on the brink of death, suckling on her dead mother's teat to survive.

"We give them hope and a respectable life," said a representative of Shanti farm to ICanHasCheezburger. "We let people meet them a fall in love with them, and we let the animals learn that they can trust and befriend humans."

Tohar the calf is one of their most amazing success stories. Read more about her below!

People Tweet About Changing Their Minds And Adopting A Senior Pet At The Last Second

Most people, when going to adopt a pet, tend to go for the little ones- the baby kittens and puppies who they'll get to raise into their families. And of course, while every adoption and every rescue is to be celebrated, it's important to remember to adopt senior and sick pets too. And sometimes, it happens that this understanding comes to you as you're already in the shelter, about to pick up your tiny new baby, and then an older one-eyes cat looks at you, and finds its way right into your soul.

A tweet sharing a story like that went viral, and other twitter users with similar stories chimed in, sharing their own stories of last minute changes to adoption plans- ones that ended with them picking up the less fortunate animals and giving them a warm home too. 

So, bring in the tissues and let your heart warm with joy.

Instead I ended up adopting a 7 yr old chubby tub of love with sad eyes that were begging for a mommy. It was love at first sight. I can't wait to bring him home and spoil him silly.

We all know that dogs are the best animals ever, right? Dogs are so loving, they're excited about the smallest things, no matter how big a dog is, it knows how to be gentle. Dogs always put everyone's comfort before theirs, and this awwdorable golden retriever is no different. 

He's huge, especially in comparison to these itty bitty newborn kittens. Yet, despite his size, he makes sure to be the most gentle with them, sniffing them and trying to understand what these little wiggly creatures are. This is good for their future too, of course, because getting used to this large doggo now will allow them to understand each other better in the future and become best friends. It's heartwarming all around, and the feels... the feels are hitting hard with this video.
