This friendship is one for the history books, guys. It may be one of the cutest, most beautiful animal friendships we've ever seen. A leopard and a Rottweiler playing and cuddling in the snow together, and they look absolutely in love. Almost as in love with each other as we are with them. 

"The leopard cub learns to play carefully, even while honing its hunting skills, not to release its claws, to control the bite force," says the description of the video. "[A]t the same time, the formidable, but kind Rottweiler allows you to play, bite and climb on your back a cute, but serious kitten." 

You can tell just how much the two of them have adjusted to each other's styles of play, all for the sake of being besties, and the results are soooo heartwarming.

Little-Known White Leopard Tortoises Appreciation

Tortoises are cool. That's an inarguable fact. Tiny tortoises, big tortoises, all tortoises are cool as heck. They can live up to 150 years old, and there's even one who has lived up to 255 years. And tortoises basically carry a shield on their backs all day long and are therefore basically invincible. If that's not cool, we don't know what is. 

But have you ever seen a white leopard tortoise? Now, in the hierarchy of tortoise coolness, they possibly take the first spot. Only possibly though, because, as stated previously, all tortoises are the coolest tortoises.

Baby Bengal Kittens Appreciation

We love our lil house panthers, and we love our lil house leopards! 

Bengal cats are said to be one of the most intelligent cat breeds around, their hind legs tend to be longer than their front legs which gives them a regal, powerful, yet graceful stride. What Bengal cats are most known for though, is their striking facial markings. Their facial markings are very similar to their Asian Leopard ancestors. 

No doubt about it, Bengal cats are stunning. And we can help but admire these adorable lil kittens, having a Bengal cat is really like having your own smaller house leopard. If you have a Bengal cat, share a pic with us in the comments below!

Big Cats With House Cat Energy Chilling On Trees

We must warn you - the animal that you're about to see is the most elusive animal you've ever gazed upon. It is the big cat spider. It is only seen once every blue moon. Spread out across the tress in all its glory, limbs loose and perfectly camaflauged. These spider leopards and jaguars are animals of grace, and they are lethal... in their cuteness. 

Okay, fine, they're not real spiders. That's just our excuse to make the cutest collection of big cats hanging out in trees. Because wanting to climb up is not just a house cat thing. Then again, all big cats have a little house cat energy in them, and that only makes us love them more.

It's such a beautifully rare thing to catch a glimpse of wild animals doing their wild animal things in the wild. The little glances we get are always super precious, whether it's just them hanging out and doing nothing or whether it's like today's video of the so painfully adorable snow leopards showing off their precious roars and their tini-tiny little cubs snuggling in the snow

Honestly, we're not sure who's cuter, the large squeaky roaring leopards brushing up against rocks or their little babies, waiting for their parents to bring food back to them. Regardless, our cold, cold hearts are absolutely melted by these snowy creatures, and we know yours will be too.

Adorable Big Cats Can Do The Bleps Too

There's a reason that all of us cat lovers also have a special place in our hearts for big cats, and it is that all big cats are basically regular cats... enlarged. They have the same faces - just bigger, they are just as silly - just bigger, and they have the same habits... just bigger. 

And so, their bleps are also... bigger. And though in this case, bigger is not necessarily better, it is definitely just as cute. Regular cat bleps are some of our favorite all time cat pictures, but they're, of course, not the only animals who can do the blep. Foxes are already strong blepping competition, and now, the big cats are officially entering the race too. You be the judge deciding who you think is the master of the blep.

Can you imagine what a sight that must have been? Luckily, Pangis took some photos so we can see the majestic black leopard for ourselves. In an interview with LADBible, Pangis explains how he felt when first spotting the rare wildcat.

Still, must have been breathtaking to see it in person!

Make sure to always look both ways before crossing the road! A lesson this mama leopard knows quite well, and teaching her cubs to do so from the looks of things!

You can see her go out into the road, stop traffic, and then come back to safely take her cubs across. Now, that's a good mama. But, you know kids, they'll disobey and make a mess of things! This mama never leaves their side, though. 

What absolute cuties!

Foster Kittens Meet Animals At The San Antonio Zoo

During the past few months, we've seen a variety of animals wandering about an aquarium and learning about the creatures of the sea! Now, it's time for the land version -- a Zoo!

And two little kittens were able to come face to face with their much larger cat family. It wasn't just tiny kittens that went on this incredible field trip! Two foster pups were invited, too! 

What is the purpose of bringing foster pets to the zoo, you might ask? It's all to raise awareness for animal adoption! The animal shelter that brought in the animals to the San Antonio Zoo is Animal Defense League of Texas
