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.

Cat Softly Patting Human's Hand Asking For Head Rubs

One of the cutest things we've seen go viral on the internet this week is this awwwwwdorable cat asking for head rubs. Over and over again, this fluffball cat oh so gently pats their human's hand and asks for its head to be petted, and our hearts are practically melted around... the first time the cat asks. By time three, we're nothing more than a puddle.  

And some people still believe cats are not affectionate. Madness. They have no clue how much cats love cuddles and head rubs and heatbutts and every other expression of love that there is. They just like it... in controlled, small doses at times of their choosing.

Cats Caught Mid Chin Rub Bliss

There's absolutely nothing that makes us happier than happy cats. Knowing that they're content in their environment, that they're in good hands and enjoying life is the best thing in the world. We just want all cats to be happy, that doesn't feel like too much to ask for. 

Chin rubs are one of those moments that lets us know our cats are truly happy. They don't let just anyone rub their vulnerable adorable chins. That blissed out expression on their faces is the most wholesome thing in the world, and we all need some wholesomeness in our lives right now. So, we collected some pictures of blissed out cats getting chin rubs in the hopes of bringing some smiles and happiness into your weekend.
