People who "hate" cats try and live with one for one full week. ... We would probably (most definitely) lie and say that I hated cats just so we could have a cat for the week.

Can you guess what will happen when these humans spend a whole week with those adorable furry animals?

Love. Unexpected love. Which is always the best kind of love.

A cat's trust must be earned. And sometimes, it takes a long time to earn that trust. 

Don't when you reach that level, and your cat finally puts its trust in you -- there is no better feeling in the world. A cat's love is something so special, and while cats tend to express their trust and affection in different ways, there are at least 8 sure signs that'll show you they trust you.

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 August's Pet of The Month: (Drumroll Please!) 

Chloë!

Sweet Special Kitten Nudges Her Way Into Reluctant Man's Heart

What an absolute angel of a kitten! 

Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, a rescue group in Charleston, West Virginia, got an 8-month-old kitten brought in who was born without a left eye or nostril. The kitten also had a bobtail and asymmetrical brain. 

Board member of Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, Kathy Lucas, told Love Meow, "We immediately fell in love with that sweet face. It was determined that her left eye did not develop and she has no nasal passage or cavity on the left. She sees and breathes on her right."

"As one vet stated, 'she is who she is' and she is a sweet, trusting, petite girl with a lot of personality,"

They named the adorable little lady, Zara. And this is Zara's story (soon to be named Idgie) of how she nudged her way into the heart of a man reluctant to adopt another cat.

Sniffer And Tinni: Real-Life "Fox And The Hound"

Sniffer, the wild fox, and Tinni, the dog, are just like Disney's "Fox and the Hound," except this time, they remain best friends and there's no heartbreak involved. 

It's a real-life Disney movie that's even more Disney than the Disney version! Hounds and foxes, typically, do not get along, That's why it was a surprise to Tinni's owner, photographer Torgeir Berge when their interaction blossomed into a real friendship. 

Lucky for us, Torgeir Berge captured some really lovely photos of the pair and now we can all have the "Fox and the Hound" version we all deserve.

Power Of Love: Before And After Adoption (21 Pics + 1 Vid)

Love is so incredibly powerful. It can transform anyone and anything, with the proper TLC (tender, love, and care). 

Whenever we come across a before and after images of a neglected animal and the transformation to healthy and happy -- we can't help but get emotional. Do be warned though, some of the 'before' images are quite graphic. We're just so happy someone got them in time to help be their true and best selves. 

We love all adopted faces, and we wish all those lovely animals a loving and happy forever home.

Cats VS Lizards: A Complicated Relationship (33 Pics)

Who knew cats would have such a love and hate relationship with lizards? From personal experience, I've had a cat deliver one too many lizards to my doorstep, some alive, others not. And I've also had a cat do absolutely nothing whenever a lizard was present. 

Cats are odd little killing machines, but every so often, there's a cat who wants nothing to do with that murder instinct and is just... chill. Below is a gallery of cats, some of which seem to have gotten a bit of karma when it comes to lizard hunting, and others who are... cuddling with lizards? One clever commenter noticed that cats love bearded dragons, but hate all other lizards. Interesting observation! 

Well, as we all can confirm -- cats are weird!

Here are 2 minutes of pure magic and love. 35-year-old Motuba, a gorilla at the Philadelphia Zoo, is seen here wrestling with his two-year-old son, Ajabu. 

Did you know what when a gorilla has its mouth open and shows only the lower teeth, it's in a playful mood and inviting to play? Pretty interesting! 

In the video, both father and son are in "play" mode, as they have their mouths opened slightly to indicate so. However, even more so, you can just see the pure love in Motuba's eyes as he watches over his son. 

We're feeling the love from this amazing dad, how about you?
