The Beautiful Transformation Of Golden Boy Chataro

Imgur user, Jimbohere, shared his beautiful cats' journey on the platform and users were blown away by the transformation (ourselves included).

It's crazy how far a little love can go. 

Chataro's story starts off heartbreaking, "The first shot was taken 8 days after he arrived, during treatment for all kinds of skin infections and parasites. He eventually lost about 90% of his hair, but over the next few months he turned into the most wonderful long-haired puss.

All in all, he's a bit of a mess, but what a magnificent mess! I'm convinced his gold color goes all the way through to his heart, and that it rubs off on anyone who comes into contact with him."

But look how handsome this magnificent little house lion turned out! And word on the street, he's living his absolute best life!

Love is truly so powerful!

Flatbush Cats found Winston alone out in the streets, dirty and hungry. Flatbush Cats is a wonderful nonprofit organization where they rescue and rehabilitate cats off the streets in New York. They don't adopt them but they put them in foster care, where they can find their forever homes once they are healthy.

Happy Valentine's Day! 

What better way to celebrate the day of love than with proposals...featuring cats! 

Honestly, if you propose with a ring, that's great and all BUT if you propose with a cat -- that's a heckin' win. Because who in their right mind can saw no to that? Not us (and not anyone sane, for that matter). 

Here are some adorable meowiage purrposals:

This sweet little kitten was all alone out in the streets, hungry and cold. That is, until a kind-hearted human, named Dessy, heard her cry for food. 

Heartbroken by the sound, Dessy turned back home to go grab some cat food. While the little butterball was scarfing down the food, Dessy had already decided he was going to rescue her. 

With the carrier, Dessy brought back the stray kitten to his home for some tender love and care.

Meet the ever-handsome orange tabby named Thor! 

Thor was born feral, and is completely blind. According to TinyKittens HQ, it's a miracle he managed to live on his own, out in the streets, for the first year of his life. 

Thankfully, Thor is now in some loving hands, and as TinyKittens HQ writes in their description, "we promise he will know nothing but love, comfort and a full belly from now on."

Thor has already gained 6 pounds, in their care, and even has a playmate named Nyla! 

"His fear instinct is quite ingrained, so it might take some time for us to help him build enough confidence with humans that he doesn't try to run and hide.  Once we have him in our laps, he is just loving being hand fed and having his ears and chin rubbed.   

Nyla is keeping Thor company until she gets her spay and eye surgery tomorrow.  She has one purrfect eye, and is very fearful in captivity, so we are hoping she will be able to return to her friends and family in our Happy Forest managed feral colony once she's fully recovered.  As with all of our ferals, we will bring her back in if she needs further medical care or if she changes her mind about life with humans."

A huge shout out and thank you to TinyKittens HQ for all their incredible and loving work they provide!

Woman And Orangutan Share Beautiful Moment Together As She Breastfeeds

Gemma Copeland was left in tears after visiting Schoenbrunn Zoo in Vienna, Austria. 

While in the orangutan enclosure, Copeland realized her son, 15-month-old Jasper, was hungry. She sat down against the glass to breastfeed him when a female orangutan, named Sol, who had been watching Copeland intently, comes to sit beside her.. as if protecting her as she breastfeeds. 

Sadly, Sol had previously given birth to a stillborn infant. 

Copeland was moved to tears by the gesture, writing, "She looked directly into my eyes then placed her hand up as if to touch my son. I was in awe of this beautiful creature already. My son wanted feeding and as it was quiet I fed him whilst I sat there. The way the orangutan reacted took my breath away she kept looking at me, then my son then back again.

She sat with me for approximately half an hour, and kept stroking the glass and lay down next to me as if to support and protect me. I was absolutely gobsmacked and got quite a crowd of people turning up to see what was going on – people were sat watching quietly and respectfully. It was really lovely and I didn't want to leave – it felt incredible and I was crying so much because I couldn't take it in.

I had to share this because my mind was blown, we may be a species apart but breastfeeding connected us today in a once in a lifetime moment that will stay with me forever."

Sol undoubtably had a strong connection to this mother and her child. Orangutans are such gentle and loving souls, Sol is an example of that love.
