Pets Showing Love In Strange But Wholesome Ways

There have been times before where we've been asked, by people who don't have pets: "how do you know that they love you back and don't only love the food you give them?" And in our hearts, the answer is obvious - we can feel it. In every interaction, strange and unique as it may be - we feel the love that our pets have for us

Today, we're bringing you some proof. Our animal-loving ICanHasCheezburger Facebook users shared with us strange ways in which their pets show them they love them, and they were all so hilariously adorable, we simply had to share them with the rest of you guys. If you love your pet and treat it right, it will show you love back. 

If your pet has some weird ways of showing love too, come tell us about it in our Facebook community: ICanHas Storytime

If we know anything about these adorable overgrown wolf goofballs is that when wolves love, they love hard. This heartwarming video captures just that. With the snow covering everything around these two wolves in The Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, the male cleans snow off his lovely mate, disregarding the fact that he himself is covered in snow too. 

Grooming her in this way not only strengthens their familial bond but it's also an intimate gesture that reaffirms their unique bond as mates. Their love helps us appreciate the love we have surrounding us a bit more too, and really, we can only hope to have as loving a relationship as theirs.

It happens to the best of us! Those of you who think you're not a "cat person," have you ever considered the possibility it's because you just haven't met the right cat? Or even give it a real chance? Cats can be the most affectionate and the silliest of pets.  

One man, in particular, was about to learn just how amazing it could be to have a cat in your life, and not just any cat but a disabled one at that. Introducing Scooter the cat! Even being told that Scooter's condition was temporary, it was quickly understood by Scooter's dad that her condition was permanent. Scooter is unable to properly use her hind legs, leaving her front legs to do all the work. And due to this effect, the name Scooter came to be!  

Watch the magic and love unfold, and follow Scooter on Instagram

Having earned the love of an animal is always an accomplishment and so special to see. Animals can love so hard, perhaps even harder than us humans. 

In an adorable and hilarious video by Instagram user, @atlasandtrico, we are introduced to Atlas, a rescue kitty who is madly in love with her owner. So much so that she refused to be without her human! And she also refuses to be quiet when it comes to her demands and expressing her love! All in all, she is purrfect.

Redditors Share Wholesome Stories Of Aloof Cats Finally Choosing Them

Earning a cat's affection is normally not easy. They are naturally suspicious creatures, especially those of them who may not have come from the best of circumstances, so for them to show their humans trust and love is not an easy task. Some cats will take a few days to get used to their new environment and people and will grow to trust you quickly. Others might take years. 

A post on Reddit went viral of someone sharing the absolute unparalleled joy they felt when their cat finally chose to rest on them for the first time in 10 whole years. Goodness, was the wait for it. Other users chimed in, sharing their own stories of their cats finally, finally, choosing them, and we found each one of them incredibly heartwarming.

Imgur User Reveals Before And After Pics Of The Foster Animals She Cared For In 2020

Hope you all are ready for some wholesome smiles today! 

We all have been through the madness that was 2020 and know how difficult and challenging that particular year has been. We also know that even though it was an awful year where we couldn't physically be with one another, there were some pros to the pandemic. Mainly, the fact shelters around the world were emptying out due to everyone's need for companionship. So many beautiful animals found their forever home in 2020 and we are forever grateful for it. 

Not only did animals find their forever homes, but certain wonderful people took it upon themselves to help animals in need. This is exactly what Imgur user thesorrycynic did. In a story shared on Imgur, thesorrycynic reveals photos of all the animals she helped foster during 2020 and shared photos of their progress. And yes, it is utterly wholesome. 

Just further proof that love can transform all! 

The commentary below is provided by thesorrycynic. 

imgur user shares all the progress photos of animals she fostered in 2020 - thumbnail dog before and after "Ripple went through hell, some freak poured diesel fuel on her and tried to set her on fire. She had extensive chemical burns and needed to wear t-shirts to protect her skin. She healed up BEAUTIFULLY, and all the fur grew back over the scars! She's now living a fabulous life in Vermont backpacking with her person""

How is it February already? And how is it that Valentine's Day is around the corner? We feel like we're still back in March of 2020 and completely unprepared for the celebration of love this year. Yet, time stops for no one and we are here, with Valentine's Day right around the corner. 

At least we have a new Simon's cat special to commemorate the occasion! The new special is called, "Perfect Pitch," and Simon's Cat tries his absolute best to serenade the lovely Chloe, in honor of the day of love. 

All we can say is that, when Simon's cat said "Meow meow meeeeowwww," we really felt that.

Posts Capturing Animals' Love For Each Other

There is nothing more wholesome than animal showing love. There's never any agenda behind it, never any goal, nothing. Animals loving humans or animals loving each other is the purest thing in the world. 

Their love is earned in ways different than those of humans, and when you manage to get it, it is the best feeling in the world. And it is just as beautiful when animals accept each other: when your cat totally falls in love with the new kitten you bring home, when two lions give each other some cuddles, or when two different animals of entirely different species decide that being friends is much more fun than fighting.

Love is in the air, and it is all around us, so we're sharing some of it with you,

Silly But Heartwarming Stories Of Cats Acting Compassionate

Whoever said that cats are not compassionate clearly doesn't know what they're talking about. Cats are incredibly compassionate, they just do it in a different way than what you are perhaps used to. 

Our amazing, animal-loving users on Facebook shared their stories about things that their cats do or ways in which they behave that are clearly loving and caring, and we thought it was only right to share these stories with you, so that you can see just how amazing cats are. These stories are insanely heartwarming but also somewhat silly at the same time. Because no matter how loving cats are, they are silly little furballs at heart. 

If you have your own heartwarming but stilly pet story to share, come talk to us on our Facebook group: ICanHas Storytime.

Facebook posts about cats being compassionate thumbnail includes one Facebook comment 'Font - Julie Pieper I had a long haired guy who had a lot of hair balls, no matter how often we brushed him. Any time I threw up, he was right there, paw on my leg, in hilarious sympathy and solidarity (I always tried to soothe him when he barfed). I swear if he could have, he'd have held my hair back for me. 54 Like · Reply · Message 1d'

Dads Falling In Love With Pets They Didn't Want

A tale as old as time... The first act: dads insisting on not getting a pet. The second: dads complaining about the pet the family got and acting like they can barely tolerate it. Act three: finding your dad cuddling your new cat/dog on the couch... still acting like they can only barely tolerate them. 

Really, they should stop pretending, we all see through them. No one can withstand the power of the cute.

r/dadswhodidnotwantpets on Reddit is the ultimate proof of that, considering how many people share their stories on it. It's wholesomeness galore, heartwarming stories and nothing else, and as someone with a dad just like one of those, I love these stories more than anything.

Cat Medley: Cuteness Galore, Funnies, Birthdays And Rescues

Usually, when we mention rescues, we talk about how humans rescue the animal, care for it and provide the animal with a loving, warm forever home. We rarely talk about the other rescue there is, how our pets, in turn, rescue us. The world seems a bit darker these days, it can't be helped, but thank goodness we have animals by our side to help take some of that darkness away. 

We don't know where we'd be without animals in our lives and don't even want to think about it. Cats (dogs, or any other pet) can rescue us too -- and they have, in so many ways. Pet owners out there will understand when we say, we may have rescued them but they rescue us back each and every day. 

This cat medley is for all the cats out there, thank you for being in our lives! 

If you have a story of your cat you'd like to share, check out our newest Facebook page, 'ICanHas Storytime,' our newest pet community for our users to finally share their pet stories! From heartwarming stories to silly shenanigans you caught your pets doing -- all are welcomed!
