Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Lucy, The Bat Cat

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Lucy, the bat cat

Lucy is a Sphynx cat who suffers from a rare condition called hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus is when spinal fluid builds up on the brain, creating pressure on Lucy's brain. Due to her condition, Lucy was not up for sale and when Zilla Bergamini first saw Lucy, she was absolutely smitten and asked if she could adopt the special needs kitten. 

"I began reading everything I could about hydrocephalus and all possible outcomes, I looked for the best veterinarian neurological center in the country, and I already started setting up a fund to pay for her surgery — if needed — or medication," Zilla told MeowAF.

And when Lucy reached the age of two months, she arrived at her new home in Haifa, Israel. Zilla was excited for Lucy's arrival but also quite nervous about caring for a kitty with such a serious neurological condition. "She was loved before coming to me," Zilla continued, "but her future was uncertain."

But despite this, Zilla says Lucy's life is pretty normal! Now, Lucy loves going on adventures with her family, spending time with outdoors and with people! 

And due to Lucy's unique looks that clearly resemble that of a bat's -- she has become a sensation on Instagram with a following of over 25k! 

Keep living life to the fullest, Little Lucy!

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Zimes The Cat

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Zimes the Cat

It's two of our favorite elements put together -- black cats and bleps! 

Meet Zimes! Zimes the cat has a permanent blep. 

The cause of the permanent blep is due to a very sad story. His owner, Margot, wrote on Zimes 'About Me' section, on Facebook, "Zimes was a stray cat who got attacked by a pitbull dog, the dog was released by his owner to hurt cats. the attack caused him to lose half of his lower jaw, and this is why his tongue is always hanging outside like this. even though Zimes went through hell and saw the real face of evil, he is now happy, healthy and loved. he is living with 3 more street survivors. 2 of them are blind."

While we are so saddened that such an awful thing like this could happen, we're also so glad Zimes is in such a caring and loving home! 

Margot continues, "I love rescuing animals with special needs, to give them a chance for a happy life. this fills my soul and heart with gratitude, love and happiness, cause there is no greater love then the love of a rescued animal."

Thank you, Margot, for your big heart! 

Enjoy some adorable images and vids of the one and only Zimes! And don'r forget to follow this little lovebug on Instagram

Artist Accurately Portrays Importance Of Giving Cats Their Space

Some cats are more social than others and you can play with them all day! That's not the case for all cats, however. 

Cats are mostly independent animals, who will come seek you out when they want your love and attention. To chase and force love upon them (though, most of us are guilty of this) will likely cause them to run and hide. 

Popular artist @whatsupbeanie portrays the importance of giving our beloved cats the space they need, and did so beautifully. 

Written in the description for the follow comic, Beanie wrote, " loved Rosa (her cat) SO much but was wayyy too energetic and crazy for the poor cat to handle at first. I was much more used to playing with dogs but once I learnt the right approach we got along very well. I miss her."

If you have children, be sure you teach them how to respect animals and to give space when needed!

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Polly and Paxton

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Polly and Paxton!

This adorable duo comes with such a heartwarming story! 

Paxton, a 12-year-old Labrador retriever, immediately bonded with a days-old blind kitten, Polly. Polly was found crying within a thicket of trees when owner Morgan Webb discovered her. She brought in the kitten and began to give her a bath. 

Paxton, never leaving Polly's side from the moment she arrived, stood by and sniffed and nuzzled Polly the moment her bath was completed. 

When a few drops of kitten milk spilled from the bottle and onto Polly, Webb stated this moment led to their inseparable bond. "Paxton would lick, lick, lick her, and he fell in love. I think that is where their relationship really started." Webb tells PEOPLE.  

Since then, their bond has been so strong and loving -- and it shows.
