Oh, be still our beating hearts! Pandas are already naturally adorable but this loving footage is simply the cutest! Nothing in this world is more precious than a loving relationship between parents and children, for humans and animals. This lovely mama has a baby cub named Pubao, who has already grown into a kid! The way she looks at her baby is enough to melt hearts around the world.

This mama loves her baby and is constantly caring for it. It's a beautiful and intimate moment between mama and baby and we're lucky enough to see it. And don't worry, these two don't live in this small cage, they mostly live in a space similar to the nature of 3,000 square meters outside the breeding grounds and are not locked up in that cage all day long! 

Congrats on the beautiful baby, loving mama!

Giving Love Back To A Blind Kitty Full Of Positivity

Meet Pebbles, a blind kitty who you're about to fall in love with. 

"As a tiny kitten I was left at a dump to die," says the description of Pebbles's Twitter account, "I had a terrible infection in both eyes. Someone brought me in to my mom's vet clinic, and she fell in love!"

With a happy-ending story like this one, where Pebbles got the love and support that they deserved, Pebbles decided to spread love and support back. Pebbles's Twitter account has nothing but love, kindness, and support. So, it's only fair that we give some love and support back to this blind beauty and say thank you to its mom for taking it in and giving it the love that it deserves.

Artist Imagines Scenarios With And Without A Dog

Pets. How different our lives are when we have a loving animal with us. You may not even realize it, but little things in your life are altered thanks to your adorable companion. One artist decided to explore what life would be like without a dog, and the exact same scenario with a dog. To take in the pup or say, "no, thank you," that is the question and will lead this character down two different timelines. The result? It's as clear as night and day.

The talented artist behind these powerful illustrations is Ademar Vieira. Ademar Vieira is a journalist, screenwriter, and illustrator. He works in an animation studio in Brazil and since 2018, he produces comic books in partnership with other illustrators and alone. In 2020, his comic strips, which talk about social, environmental, and personal issues, went viral in Latin America and other parts of the world.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and these illustrations convey those thousand words. 

Follow Ademar Vieira on Instagram for more incredible and thought-provoking art!

Getting used to your new forever home is never an easy task, especially for an older cat. But with a loving family who only want the best for the kitty, eventually, even the most stubborn and scared cat will learn to love its forever parents. It's just a matter of love, gentle pets, and patience. 

Check out this week's animation of Earnie's diary, where he slowly but surely learns to trust his new family. And prepare the happy crying tissues, because this is something that every cat owner and lover out there will relate to: the process all the way from the hiss, to the first touch, to them scratching you out because they can't stop kneading you. It's love, guys.

Senior Cat Appreciation Gallery (18 Images)

Senior cats have a warm spot in our hearts. I, personally, have a senior cat of my own of 15 years and I cherish every moment with my handsome old man! 

Our senior pets are a large part of our hearts. Whether you just adopted a senior animal, or have had them since they were young, we have such a strong connection to our older and calmer furbabies. For some of us, our cats have been there with us from a young delicate age and have watched us grow, watched us cry, watched us fall in love, pretty much anything you can think of -- your pet was there for it. 

We love our senior babies and do all we can to let them do how much we love them because truth be told, we don't know how much longer we have with them so it's best to just hug/pet/kiss/cuddle them any chance we get. Here are some senior cats who are still going strong and looking great! 

If you have a senior pet of your own, share an image in the comments below!

Two Rescued Kitten Siblings Learning To Trust Humans (Viral Thread)

It takes a lot of work to get a feral kitten to trust you, let alone two of them. But it's the kind of hard work that's worth every second. 

This viral thread on imgur by straightcreepen tells the story of two feral kitten siblings who were living in an industrial area near a junk yard and were picked up by a rescue. The kittens would have had to have been euthanized had they not been saved and later tamed, but luckily, they were in the hands of people who know how important it is to help feral kittens. 

It took time, and it took love, but both kittens learned to trust and love the humans around them. And now, the sweet boys have been adopted - together! 

Read their heartwarming story and maybe share it with someone who has misconceptions about feral kittens and the joy they can bring. 

viral imgur thread about two feral kittens getting rescued and learning to trust humans thumbnail includes two pictures including one of a scared kitten and another of a kitten showing its belly 'Rain took a bit more convincing. But positive association and lots of exposure to people, and soon River was about that snug life, and Rain came along right after him -straightcreepen'

Pictures Capturing How Much Pets Love Their Humans

People who have no pets seem to truly have no idea what they're missing. The love and joy that an animal brings into a household, the brightness and pure positivity. And it's important to remember that, of course, you're not the only one who's made happy by their presence, but that they're also made happy by yours. 

There is nothing more gratifying in the world when you have a pet than seeing that pet love you back. Whether you see in the way they snuggle with you or in the way they just chill next to you, when animals love, they love hard. And it is the most beautiful thing in the world. 

So, if you know anyone who's considering adopting, show them these pictures, and their mind will hopefully be set on "yes".

Beautiful Bond Between Humans And Animals

We, humans, have such a special and beautiful bond with various animals. It's a bond that strengths over time, over trust, and love. It's a bond we are constantly working on, or maybe it just comes naturally to us. We adore the animals in our lives and it's so reassuring and beautiful just to see that love captured in an image. 

Animals can provide us with so much joy, responsibilities, definitely, but always it's worth their love and happiness. We can help but feel all warm inside whenever we see a strong bond between a human and an animal, no matter the species.

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 Chloë!

For more information -->https://wagglefoundation.org/donations/icanhascheezburger-chloe/

Gentle Cat Bites Cat Fans Adore

Cats can be a little rough sometimes, let's be honest. When they bite us, playfighting, and leaving little tooth-mark holes in our skin, it's not the most comfortable feeling. But we love cats. And we love them when they're having their big-cat-energy moments just as much as when they're turning onto their backs and asking for belly rubs.

So, this one is for all the biggest cat fans out there who are not scared of a tiny little cat love bite. It is us who will give the love bite its full love and appreciation. And we shall wear the tooth-mark holes on our arms as marks of pride!

Cheetah Moms With Their Little Cheetos

One of our favorite things in the animal kingdom is the obvious, heartwarming love between mothers and their tiny little babies. And the bigger they are, the more adorable we find them. There's a tendency to think of big cats as dangerous and heartless, but we know better than that, we know that they are just as loving as any cat once you earn their trust and love. 

Cheetahs are no different. They are known to be one of the most affectionate big cats when it comes to their relationships with humans. But when it comes to their babies, their little cheetos, their love and adoration is clear as day, and it's so adorable and wholesome, it makes our hearts flutter.
