Is there anything more heart-wrenchingly adorable than kittens opening their eyes for the first time? The innocence. The wholesomeness. The purity. Our hearts can barely handle it. And in this video, there are so many tiny squeaky adorable widdle kittens who are literally seeing the whole world for the first time, we might just completely melt.

12 days after their birth, almost all of the kittens finally have their little eyes open, and we are thrilled. The mom is purring, the kittens look calm, and they snuggle each other and mom for warmth, making our hearts warmer in turn.

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.

Stray Cat Brings Her Kittens To Their Human Savior

Earlier in the summer, a fluffy cat appeared in Lisianne's garden in Canada. It looked lonely and hungry, so Lisianne put out some water and food for it. That was the start of the most wholesome friendship. Becoming fond of the cat, Lisianne named her Usagi, and continued caring for Usagi every day when she showed up in her garden. After a while, the kitty started getting bigger, but not from food. It was because she was pregnant. 

As reported by Unilad, a Facebook post by a local rescue group, Chatons Orphelins Montréal, wrote: "This lady with a big heart for this cause was watching her, she put food and water in order to help her… a routine has settled between this kitty and her good fairy. With this routine, the lady gained her confidence and the kitty started getting closer."

Usagi, after giving birth outside, continued coming back to eat at Lisianne's, and soon, the gorgeous black cat brought her tiny kittens to Lisianne's porch, one by one, setting up a nest near the woman's house where she and her babies will be safe. Lisianne, being an absolute angel, decided to help the kittens further, getting them a room in with the local rescue group, and saving their lives. 

Lisianne decided to keep Usagi, a friend of hers adopted one of the babies, while the other five kittens stay at Chatons Orphelins Montréal and get treated, because it turns out that all five of the kittens had "breathing issues and conjunctivitis." They were treated for their issues are are now better, all thanks to the help of this one person who saved their lives.

Aawdorable Swan Moms Carrying And Protecting Swan Babies

We all know that there's something special about being held in your mother's arms. It's a unique kind of soft and warm. It makes us feel protected even now that we're older but especially when we were little babies. 

It's the same for animals. For them too, there is something special about being held and carried by mom, whether it's dogs or cats or swans. And since we all feel like we could use a hug right about now, and there's nothing better in the world than a big strong hug from mom, we've brought you some of the most wholesome and sweetest pictures we could find of mother's love in nature in the form of little tiny baby swans getting carried around and being sheltered by their mommas.

In every cub's life, there's an incredible moment - the moment they meet their dad for the first time. It's totally normal for them to be separate at first, and that makes for some of the cutest first time dad meeting ever. This meeting goes as good as it could, and it's totally adorable. 

The dad roars at them a couple times, and they jump back - the big lion is intimidating, that's true, but he's also a perfect gentleman. He just has to show them how to be a proper fierce lion. And the little cubs are happy, excited, and playful. And adorable. Don't forget adorable. The big bad terrifying lion dad is also kind of really adorable, not gonna lie. 

Now, the mom is not going to have to protect her babies alone, and the pride is going to be stronger than ever. Of course, the little hooligans will keep up their shenanigans, but dad's gonna make sure that they know exactly how to be the fiercest, scariest (and cutest) lions around.

Heartbroken Dog Who Lost Entire Litter Adopts Kittens, And Cares For Them

A heartbreaking tale with a happy ending. Sunshine Dog Rescue, a Non-Profit Organization located in Phoenix, Arizona, rescued a beautiful Australian Shepherd Mix named Georgia. 

Georgia was found living at a gas station near the border to Mexico. Georgia was pregnant, but sadly, none of her puppies made it. All her pups were born prematurely. 

Founder of the Sunshine Dog Rescue, Anita Osa, knew Georgia was heartbroken at the loss of losing all her babies. Osa told ABC15, "I've never had a mom dog lose a whole litter before. The best way I could describe it was she was frantic. It was so sad, she was looking for those babies. She tore up the toddler mattress we had her on, trying to find her babies." 

Osa quickly went to work and asked for help on Facebook. Osa was looking for any orphaned baby animals that were in need of a lactating mother. Osa ended up with three kittens who just so happened to fit that bill. 

Of course, with any interspecies integration, you have to worry about whether or not each animal would accept the other. Thankfully, Georgia and the kittens instantly bonded. Osa claims the moment Georgia sniffed the kittens, she calmed down significantly.

They do nurse on her. She cleans them and everything but the bond is strong. It's really something to see, she protects those kittens just as if they were her babies," Osa added. 

While we are heartbroken for the loss of Georgia's litter, we are grateful she found a family of her own with others who needed her. 

Check out the adorable videos of Georgia and her baby kittens below.

Make sure to always look both ways before crossing the road! A lesson this mama leopard knows quite well, and teaching her cubs to do so from the looks of things!

You can see her go out into the road, stop traffic, and then come back to safely take her cubs across. Now, that's a good mama. But, you know kids, they'll disobey and make a mess of things! This mama never leaves their side, though. 

What absolute cuties!

Endangered Gorilla Is Expecting 1st Baby In New Orleans' Zoo

What beautiful news! 

13-year-old Tumani is excepting her very first baby! The critically endangered gorilla, who currently resides at the New Orleans' zoo, is already being trained in preparation for the bundle of joy! Tumani has been given a "doll" to care for, but since a stuffed doll doesn't look anything like a gorilla, it could be easily torn apart. 

Instead, they come up with another idea. Audubon Zoo's chief veterinarian, Dr. Robert McLean, explained that they created a "rugged section of canvas firehose tubing has been woven roughly to the proportions and weight of a 4-pound newborn gorilla."

"I haven't seen it myself, McLean continued. "Apparently it's pretty ugly but it does the job."

Tumani is a western lowland gorilla. In 2016, there was only an estimate of 362,000 in the wild, and that number falls about 2.7% a year. And according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, by 2082, those numbers might plummet to 80%. 

Unfortunately, due to diseases, such as Ebola, habitat loss, and illegal hunting, their population is plummeting quickly. 

And all the more reason to celebrate Tumani and her baby to be. We wish this mama a healthy delivery and a healthy baby!
