Never have we imagined that ravens can be such affectionate and adorable animals. They get such a bad rep - so scary, don't go near them. Loki though, Loki is the most adorable raven we've ever seen in our lives. He's comes when he's called, he preforms tricks, he responds when talked to, and he has the deepest voice we've ever heard - the last thing we expected was for him to sound like that. 

Birds are honestly so underrated - they can be so playful and wholesome. This is not the first time that birds have taken over the hearts of the people on the internet, they've done it many times. For example, when birds speaking in different accents went viral on twitter. We love birds, and now, we love ravens too.

Every cat owner knows that being bitten once or twice is part of the deal when getting a cat. To non-cat people, that might seem very strange, even scary, but cat owners understand that a cat bite is a love bite. It's true, cats bite when angry, but they also bite because they feel affection. Gently holding your finger between your teeth - cat bites are a sign of love. 

Inspired by a poem of the same name written by yours truly, the talented Tracy Thorne - and her cat - shine again, bringing us the latest cat theme song that will definitely be stuck in your head for a while. Listen to the previous songs Tracy has performed for us:  it wasn't me and i is fierce

Ways Cats Show Love To Their Humans (Facebook Comments)

Unfortunately, cats have a reputation for being cold-hearted. It's hard to say that it's unearned - they're quite aloof, sometimes it takes years until they finally warm up to you. And sometimes, people just don't understand the special ways in which they express love. You gotta learn how to read the signs, the same way that you do with humans. Different creatures express love in different ways. 

Cats are not cold hearted at all, and our cat-loving ICanHasCheezburger Facebook users have decided to prove it by sharing stories of their cats showing them love with us. And the stories were so wholesome, we simply had to share it with you as well. Bask in the love everyone, and if the love stings a little, that's just part of having a cat.

Facebook comments about cats loving their humans | thumbnail includes a picture of two cats and one Facebook comment 'Cat - Top Fan Taramay Curtis They really love you if they do what my girls do, "potty patrol", supervised potty time. Like really they gotta stare at me the whole time..lol OD 15'

Tumblr Thread: Crocodile Dads Are The Best

We could never imagine that we'd ever say "awwww" about a crocodile. They are so scary, and omg, if we ever met one in real life, we would run away shaking. But, time and time again, the internet manages to convince us that these terrifying animals are not that bad. From the time that we all celebrated the 120th birthday of the oldest known Nile crocodile, to the time that we all giggled and laughed and felt embarrassed about the hilarious way that crocodiles actually look like underwater, to the time that we fell in love with crocodile skinks because they look like tiny dragons

And now, through this tumblr thread, we learn that crocodile dads are super protective of their little babies and carry them around on their backs - in groups of hundreds. It's adorable. Crocodiles are adorable. Shocking, right?

tumblr thread about crocodile dads carrying their babies | thumbnail includes a picture of a crocodile carrying many crocodile babies and a section of a tumblr post 'Water - kaijutegu Follow Everyone in the notes is saying mama, but that's dad. See the lump on his nose? Only males have those. It's actually where they got their name; the lumps tend to resemble earthenware cooking pots called ghara. What we're seeing here is a really good dad. This is par for the course for gharials, though-'

Wholesome Pics Of Cats Befriending Other Animals

Cats are kind of known to be uh cough cough antisocial creatures. Sometimes it is true, I'm not gonna lie. However, a lot of the time it very much isn't the case! For example, cats and dogs oftentimes get along swimmingly despite all the rumors. With a little getting used to and enough encouragement, a lot of animals can absolutely get along with cats! Cats just show their love in funny ways sometimes.

Some of the photos you will see here are cats with animals they are "supposed" to fight with, like dogs.

Big Bad Wolves Being Their Affectionate Goofball Selves

Wolves are dangerous, yes, we know. But we're animal lovers, so we know better than to fall for the stereotype of the big bad wolf. Wolves may be dangerous, but so are adorable big wild cats, and we think they're cute too. Amazingly, the big bad wolf is incredibly affectionate, and in general, wolves are the biggest goofballs ever


Wolves are basically overgrown doggos, so it totally makes sense that we love them so much. We can only hope to one day meet a wolf friendly enough who will actually give us permission to pet its belly. That would be a total dream come true.

Animals Hugging Each Other Reminding Of The Good In The World

January 21st is the actual annual date of National Hug Day. Although frankly, if we are being honest, this should be a much more common sort of day. Kind of like a Friday. Hugging should happen more often and amongst more people (only if the people actually agree to it, of course- consent is important!). When animals hug, it bursts into our brains as if we are being hugged ourselves. It is so sweet and heartwarming, that I'm pretty much convinced we should make it a regular holiday.

We have here raccoons, dogs, cats, reptiles, seals, dolphins, and bunnies! My goodness, are there any animals even missing? There are mixed-species hugs and homogenized-species hugs. We can learn a thing or two from these darlings. Love is a powerful thing and these little guys show us exactly why.

When people say that opposites attract, they are talking specifically about this deaf puppy and this 2-year-old girl, we are certain of it. Never have you seen love  stronger than the love between this little human and her doggo. The connection was instantaneous and so heartwarming. For some reason, as the video says, this "girl who can't stop talking , and the guy who can't hear anything" became unlikely best friends right away.

Happily, this love was strong enough for the mom to see it and know that it was meant to be. So, what started as dog sitting for two weeks turned into this awwdorable puppy finding its forever home with an amazing, loving family. And that's all we could ever want for it.

Huskies are known to be the biggest, goofiest fluffballs. They seems to be aware of how huge they are, and because they love their humans so much, they make sure to be gentle and careful with them. Of course, they can't help but be overprotective sometimes, exactly because they love their humans that much, and trying to nap with them can prove to be the most wholesome and entertaining challenge. 

It's worth every second though, of course, because as much as our dogs love us, we love them about a million times more. You know, sometimes being suffocated by fur is totally worth it for the cuddle time.

Get ready for one of the most heartwarming rescue stories you've ever seen. After being abandoned by its birth family, this itty bitty kitten was left all alone. Luckily, he found himself in good hands and was not only rescued but also taken into the most loving forever home. 

Of course, the transition was not the easiest, it takes time for cats, even as young as this one, to get used to their new surroundings. But eventually, this little fluffball realized that what he had, both with this human and with the rest of his cats, is something incredibly special - it is a big, loving, wholesome family
