Lion Soulmates Euthanized Together Due To Health Problems

The news of L.A. Zoo's African lions Hubert and Kalisa hit us pretty hard. The pair were always together, never having cubs, but still, side by side for many years. Best friends, soulmates, this duo truly loved one another. 

Last Thursday, L.A. Zoo, made the difficult decision to humanely put the pair down with euthanize, due to their declining health and illnesses due to age. 

Denise Verret, director of the L.A. Zoo, had this to say about the beautiful pair, "Hubert and Kalisa are an iconic part of the L.A. Zoo experience, and our staff and guests have been touched by their loyal companionship. Their longevity is truly a testament to the level of expert care our veterinary and animal care teams provide for our elderly animals. These lions will remain a positive part of our history, and they will be greatly missed."

We will miss you, Hubert and Kalisa. Rest in peace.

Stolen Teddy Bear With Recording Of Late Mother's Message Returned

Thank goodness for good people! 

In Vancouver, British Columbia, Mara Soriano was moving when she had items stolen from her backpack. The items were important documents, an iPad, and the most important, a teddy bear. This wasn't just a teddy bear, it was special. The bear had a voice recording of Soriano's late mother, who had passed away in 2019. 

Safe to say, it was irreplaceable. 

Soriano told CBC, "At hospice her voice was different. Much softer. Not the mom I grew up with. That bear is the last memory I have of her speaking in her normal voice."

Anyone else's eyes getting a bit (or a lot) misty? 

We're just so happy to find out this heartbreaking tale does have a happy ending. Read on to see the full story:

The cuteness never ends! Meet Sakura, the otter, and Mochi, the cat! 

The pair are best friends and love to snuggle with each other and the hearts of everyone, everywhere, are exploding. 

Sakura can't seem to let go of Mochi while snuggling and it made us think about how otters (in the wild) hold onto the hands of their friends and family so they don't drift away and lose one another. Makes this moment feel just as precious, wouldn't you say? 

You can follow more Sakura and Mochi on YouTube

Love can transform all. Sometimes, we can forget that, and then we see something miraculous and it opens our eyes to the truth once more.

The truth being, that love is powerful. In a breathtaking video (that currently has over 6million views), taken by TikTok user Lacey Scott, we are introduced to an old fish on the verge of dying. Lacey Scott took in this old fish, named him Monstro, and gave him proper care. 

What happened next is so magical and beautiful, you'd have to see it to believe it. Trust it, it's worth every second. 

Thank you for your loving heart, Lacey Scott.

Cat Medley: Funnies, Cuteness Galore, Mourning And Loss

Welcome back to another hearty collection of cats being cats! Special thanks to the subreddit r/cats, for always delivering such magic! 

The pictures all have one thing in common, and that is, of course, cats. However, that's where the similarities end. 

There are images of glow-ups, hilarious cats being hilarious, adorable-ness (naturally), and mourning and loss. It can't always be sunshine and rainbows, sadly... with love comes loss. We wanted to take a moment to appreciate the beauty of all these cats and remember those who have recently left us, they may be gone but never forgotten.

Woman Sees Recently Passed Dog In The Clouds (Tweets)

This is so beautiful. It's like when you're having the worst day imaginable, just downpour rain and all of a sudden you see it -- a rainbow. A rainbow appears and you can't help but smile because you know things will get better. 

And if you recently lost a loved one, you know they're looking down, watching over you. That's how we choose to see it, anyways.

Twitter user, @LLedgeway, recently lost her beloved dog and later in the day, saw an image of her beautiful dog in the clouds. 

And we totally see it, too! Twitter users soon began sharing similar experiences and our eyes are just so weepy. 

We believe in all these signs, anything that brings comfort in such a time.

Lovey-Dovey Pets And Their Loving Ways

We don't need our pets to tell us they love us, they show it in so many ways...you just have to notice them. 

Here are a few ways our beloved pets show us how much they love us:

1. Just how happy they are to see us. Always. I don't know about you, but every time I enter the room where my cat is currently residing -- he gets so excited! When if it's only been 5 minutes since our last encounter. Our pets are so ecstatic just to be near us! Think about that!

2. Those eyes. Who needs words when you have those deep, super-duper loving eyes staring into your soul? That says more than enough. 

3. The little gentle touches, or quirks, they do. For example, your cat may run up to you and stop right before reaching you and suddenly turn to the left or right, but doing so right in front of you. They want you to make that extra step and love them back. And we 100% do, every time. 

Our pets adore us and we adore them. We figure it's a good moment to go give them a big hug and kiss.

Wombat And Koala Strike Up Friendship During Lockdown

Be still our tender hearts! There is absolutely nothing more precious than when two different animal species become best friends! 

During the COVID-19 lockdown at the Australian Wildlife Park, a koala named, Elsa, and a wombat named, Hope, shared an enclosure together. 

It was during that time that they two struck up the most adorable friendship. They're now being called, "lockdown BFFs." The two marsupials were hand raised by the keepers at the Australia Reptile Park, wombats are actually the closest relative species to the koala, so their keepers figured it would be a friendship match in heaven... they were right. 

Now that the park has re-opened, the keepers are making sure that the two are able to see each other every day!
