Gentle Cat Bites Cat Fans Adore

Cats can be a little rough sometimes, let's be honest. When they bite us, playfighting, and leaving little tooth-mark holes in our skin, it's not the most comfortable feeling. But we love cats. And we love them when they're having their big-cat-energy moments just as much as when they're turning onto their backs and asking for belly rubs.

So, this one is for all the biggest cat fans out there who are not scared of a tiny little cat love bite. It is us who will give the love bite its full love and appreciation. And we shall wear the tooth-mark holes on our arms as marks of pride!

Cheetah Moms With Their Little Cheetos

One of our favorite things in the animal kingdom is the obvious, heartwarming love between mothers and their tiny little babies. And the bigger they are, the more adorable we find them. There's a tendency to think of big cats as dangerous and heartless, but we know better than that, we know that they are just as loving as any cat once you earn their trust and love. 

Cheetahs are no different. They are known to be one of the most affectionate big cats when it comes to their relationships with humans. But when it comes to their babies, their little cheetos, their love and adoration is clear as day, and it's so adorable and wholesome, it makes our hearts flutter.

Wholesome Cats And Kittens Cuddling Their Humans

Big Bad Wolves Showing Each Other Some Love

Wolves may normally be depicted as scary, snarling, evil creatures - the big bad wolves, right? - but they're also known as some of the most affectionate, cutest animals out there. They're always running in packs, they howl if they're separated from their pack, sometimes as a signal, sometimes just to show some love, and some of them even mate for life. 

These terrifying creatures really know how to love each other, and the do it in the sweetest ways possible, nuzzling each other, randomly placing their heads on each other. A little like doggies. They even wag their tails when they're happy. And since these wolves are happy and in love, and we love them, we've decided to let some of this love envelop us in these stressful days, since we all need a little wholesome love right about now

Aw, our hearts are bursting! What some love and a good friend can do for your quality of life is incredible and so inspiring. This is the heartwarming transformation of a senior cat who makes a tiny friend and begins to act like a kitten himself.

Meet Phoenix, an older cat who was found abandoned in his owner's old apartment. He had spent a year there all alone before being rescued. His new foster mom could tell he was depressed. She cleaned Phoenix up as he slowly began to heal and transform yet he remained aloof and uninterested in other cats. Until, one day, a tiny weak kitten, by the name of Ruby, demanded that Phoenix play with her. 

The rest was history. Now the adorable pair will only be adopted out together. Follow the Cats of San Bernardino on Instagram.

Pet of the Month: Chloë, 13-year-old Maltese mix, In Need of Tumor Removal Surgery

ICanHasCheezburger? is proud to present and partner with The Waggle Foundation, in a Pet of the Month initiative

Each month, we will be featuring a pet in critical need and needs financial help to survive. We will share their story, their adorable photos, and their journey with the help of unbelievably kind strangers. 

The Waggle Foundation is a unique crowd-funding platform. Their mission is to help reduce economic euthanasia in pets. Unfortunately, because of financial struggles families cannot afford to help their beloved pets. That is where the Waggle Foundation steps in. They strive to help each and every pet in need, and just as their motto says "No pet parent should lose their best friend because of financial hardship."

And we couldn't agree more.

100% of donations to pets on the Waggle crowdfunding platform go directly to the veterinary providers administering care and never to the pet owners. This way, Waggle provides the safety and security for all donors in a way that other crowdfunding platforms cannot guarantee, and is reassured that the pet gets the help it needs.

And with that, we would like to present Our Pet of The Month (Drumroll Please!) 

Chloë!

Relaxing Gifs Of Cats And Kittens Slow Blinking

It's been a stressful week, and now, it's time to take a breath, relax, and go cuddle your kitty. The cuddling is the most important part of that, of course. To get you started on your mission of relaxation, we have collected a bunch of gifs of the most relaxing thing of all - adorable cats and kittens blowing kisses at you by slow blinking.

There's nothing that makes us happier than when our kitties blow kisses at us like that, saying "I love you" in their wholesome cat way. It really gives us butterflies, and we make sure to slow blink right back at them, saying "I love you too." It's rare enough though, to catch such moments in picture or in video, so these gifs are few and far between, but they are gifs, so we get these "I love you"s on a loop, over and over again, as many times as we need to see it.

Everyone needs some love sometimes - people, animals - we all want love and affection. And sometimes, nature goes out of its way to give us some of that love we so desperately need. This time, nature has done it through one of our favorite animals - cows. 

Personally, we think not enough people appreciate how wholesome and amoosing cows can be, so we decided to take it upon ourselves and show you. We've seen cats who were blessed with hearts on their fur, and now we give you pictures of cows with hearts on their fur to appreciate as well. They're just so udderly adorable, and they need love just as much as everyone else.

All you need is love, love, love is all you need. Ain't that the truth. When it comes to animals, love is truly all they want and need. A good home, filled with endless tender love and care, and any pet and flourish into their most beautiful selves. It's so moving to see the transformation, especially if they come from such a broken place, it's difficult to see animals look so ragged and in pain, but after they're taken into a good home, their transformation is the most beautiful of all. 

A huge heartfelt thank you to those who go out of their way to help animals in need, and who adopt those who need more attention and care. The world would do well with more people like you. 

Get ready to see some gorgeous glow ups:

After Six Years Of Trying, Pelican Couple Welcomes Baby

This is so incredibly sweet!

Mr. Pelican was first found on Chambers Island in Maroochydore, Queensland, constantly getting in trouble. He would get entangled in fishing lines, and would constantly need help. As Twinnies Pelican and Seabird Rescue, in Australia, continued to come to aid him, one day that came to find him missing a wing due to a severe injury, and was taken into Twinnies Sanctuary. 

Since then, Mr. Pelican has found a partner and has been trying to have a baby. For six years, Mr. Pelican and his partner have been trying, they would dutifully watch and sit on their eggs, share the incubation period together, and no egg would ever hatch. 

Until now. This past September, when a caretaker at Twinnies placed a fellow pelican's egg within Mr. Pelican's nest, and it hatched. 

Twinnies stated on their Facebook page, "Mr. Percival has never given up trying to have a baby pelican chick. We felt so sorry for him as it's so sad when he's seen the others around him seeing baby pelicans. So we did this amazing thing for him as we wanted to make him really happy this time."

Awwwee! We love happy endings! 

This gorgeous gray kitten was all alone in the woods when just by chance, decided to bolt out into the road. It just so happened that Brittany, a volunteer of Sparkle Cat Rescue was driving by and noticed something bolt from the trees and flash across the road.

Porcupine Rescued From Wildfires Reunited With Its Mate

A few weeks ago, after the Labor Day wildfires, Riley Wisdom was checking out the damage to her farmland when she saw an animal in front of a burnt tree. The porcupine was in such bad condition it was hard to even tell what it was, to the point that Wisdom thought it was a beaver at first. Today, weeks later, this porcupine's story is warming all of our hearts. It's a happy ending. The porcupine is better and has been released, and not only that but the moment she was released, she was reunited in the trees with her mate.
