Photographer Highlights Similarities Between Pets And Their Owners

If you ever watched Disney's 101 Dalmations, you may recall the opening scene in which the Pongo is searching for a match for his human. As he looks out into the street, he sees multiple people, with their dog in tow, and each person matches their dog in some way or another. It's an adorable scene and now we're itching to re-watch that masterpiece. 

In general, they say owners tend to pick out pets that look similar to themselves. Professional animal photographer, Gerrard Gethings, has created these portraits to prove that theory. And honestly, we're completely convinced. 

The resemblance between these pet owners and their beloved pets is uncanny and cannot be ignored. The series is called #doyoulooklikeyourdog and #doyoulooklikeyourcat. Gethings then compares the portraits and highlights the similarities.

Follow Gerrard Gething on Instagram or Twitter for amazing photography!

"How It Started vs How It's Going": Rescued Animals Edition (Tweets)

"How it started vs how it's going" is quite the wholesome and newest Twitter challenge. Especially the ones that feature animals! 

Twitter users have been sharing how their pets first entered their lives, most of them lonely, malnourished, and in desperate need of some tender love and care. Then, right beside that photo of how it all started, they share an image of where they are now. And where they are now is happy, loved, and in their forever home. This trend has certainly hit us in the feels! 

There is nothing more heartwarming than seeing an animal grow strong and happy, and that's what this challenge is all about -- the good things in life.

Join the fun and share with us your "how it started vs how it's going" story!

Twitter User Reveals New Cat Bedroom, Others Quickly Join In (Thread)

This is one of the cutest Twitter threads we've seen in a while! Cat beds that are actually being used by cats? What is this dark magic? 

As a cat owner, we know cats generally don't sleep in whatever bed you tend to buy for them but will spend countless hours inside an old cardboard box. Yet, for some reason, the cat bed from IKEA is changing things up! 

Twitter user @MaudFeijt recently created an adorable little bedroom for her two cats, complete with two beds from IKEA. She shared the photos on Twitter and the tweet soon went viral as others began sharing their IKEA beds for their pets. 

We have a theory, stick with us on this one. What if cats are so intelligent that a regular cat bed is an insult to them? What if the fact that the IKEA bed is a miniature version of our beds is the reason they like it so much? They see themselves as our equals and therefore deserve the same style bed as we have. But then again, the whole cardboard box thing sends this theory into the garbage.

Animals Before And After Adoption

All you need is love, love, love is all you need. Ain't that the truth. When it comes to animals, love is truly all they want and need. A good home, filled with endless tender love and care, and any pet and flourish into their most beautiful selves. It's so moving to see the transformation, especially if they come from such a broken place, it's difficult to see animals look so ragged and in pain, but after they're taken into a good home, their transformation is the most beautiful of all. 

A huge heartfelt thank you to those who go out of their way to help animals in need, and who adopt those who need more attention and care. The world would do well with more people like you. 

Get ready to see some gorgeous glow ups:

Men And Their Special Bond With Pets

There's something so special about bonding with a pet, and even more so when you didn't think you ever would... ahem ahem dads out there who didn't originally want a pet

We all hold special bonds with our pets and it's always utterly precious to see those inside moments that people and animals share. You can feel the strong connection, you can see the love in their eyes and movements. Having that connection is a powerful thing and these men are no exception to feeling that love. 

Cheers to all the beautiful animals in our lives! They don't even know how much joy they bring to our lives.

Weird And Uncomfortable 'Glamour' Portraits With Pets

Yikes. We're not entirely sure if some of these are purposely bad or if at the time, someone thought these pictures were fantastic and decided to share them with the world. We're hoping for the former, that these are just ironically bad portraits with the sole purrpose of making us laugh. 

If that's the case, they've totally nailed it! These portraits have everything that would make a classic awkward portrait. The bad photoshop, the ugly Christmas sweaters, the seductive poses, and of course, a shot where your pet looks confused as heck. 

We'll be honest with you... we'd like to see more of these portraits this upcoming holiday season.

Artist Creates 'Crappy Pet Portraits' To Raise Money For Charity

They're kind of all amazing, in their own crappy, adorable way. 

Meet Hercule Van Wolfwinkle, the acclaimed pet portrait artist, who has come up with a creative and fun way to help raise money for the charity Turning Tides Ending Local Homelessness, a homelessness charity local to Hercule. The charity is described in the fundraising site as, " local charity that believe everyone has the right to a home, regardless of the difficulties and issues they may face in their lives. They believe in showing those who need their help, that the wider community are there to support them too!"

The acclaimed artist seems to be in demand, the fundraising project already 577% more than the target. And with the donations comes the beautiful, and highly realistic pet portraits. Also explained within the fundraising project, Hercule has two styles when it comes to his masterpiece creations, "one super realistic full colour which is just like looking at a photograph or alternatively the more contemporary black and white portrait that will grace any home."

Check out some of these museum-worthy drawings and start donating to obtain your one original Hercule Van Wolfwinkle!

Blind Beauties: Blind Pet Appreciation

Just because they can't see, doesn't mean they don't deserve the same love and attention as other pets. 

Blind pets may not see, but they can sure feel. And what they feel is overwhelming love. So much love that we can't help but feel it over on our end, too. 

We gave a shout out in the past to one-eyed cats, senior cats, and now we wish to do the same to those who have lost their eyesight. We're so happy to see these beauties thrive in an environment where they are loved. This is a specific shout out to all those beautiful blind (or semi-blind) pets. You are beautiful.

Spicy Pets Broadcasting High Levels Of Sass

That's how we feel when we come across such spicy and sassy pets! Pets who have no problem whatsoever conveying how they feel, and do so clearly enough for us to understand them.

Artist Sums Up How Life Changes After Getting A Pet

Chinese artist, Mai Mai, has perfectly summed up what life is like after you get a pet and the little day-to-day things that will change because of it/

Photos of landscapes and selfies will be replaced with nothing but your pets. Maybe a few selfies with said pets. Have clean clothes? Not anymore. Pet hair gets everywhere, and it gets everywhere fast. Extra money? Will go to taking care of your pet because they come first. 

It may sound unpleasant but it's honestly the best. And all pet owners can attest to that. There is nothing compared to having a best friend by side, always loving you. Truly, it's unmeasurable. 

Thank you, Mai Mai, for opening up our eyes and showing up the beauty of what having pets in our lives accomplishes. 

Follow @mai2john on Facebook for more delightful illustrations!
