How do cats express their love? Well, in many ways such as: rubbing up against you, love bites, walking in between your legs as you walk, etc.

Reunited: Missing Cat Returned Home After 11 Years On The Streets

We cannot stress this enough -- please microchip your pets! 

Thankfully, Eve McDonnell did microchip her beloved cat, Missy. 

11 years ago, Missy escaped from McDonnell's car and despite searching for her -- she was never found. Until now! Residents nearby noticed a cat living amongst rubbish and were able to capture and take her into a local rescue center where they discovered she was microchipped! 

You can imagine Ms McDonnell's surprise to receive a call that her cat from 11 years ago (and now 17-years-old) is alive and well!

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Polly and Paxton

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Polly and Paxton!

This adorable duo comes with such a heartwarming story! 

Paxton, a 12-year-old Labrador retriever, immediately bonded with a days-old blind kitten, Polly. Polly was found crying within a thicket of trees when owner Morgan Webb discovered her. She brought in the kitten and began to give her a bath. 

Paxton, never leaving Polly's side from the moment she arrived, stood by and sniffed and nuzzled Polly the moment her bath was completed. 

When a few drops of kitten milk spilled from the bottle and onto Polly, Webb stated this moment led to their inseparable bond. "Paxton would lick, lick, lick her, and he fell in love. I think that is where their relationship really started." Webb tells PEOPLE.  

Since then, their bond has been so strong and loving -- and it shows.

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!

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.
