Fifty Images Of Cats For A Moment Of Zen

Just take a deep breath and let these fifty adorable cat photos wash over you and leave you with peacefulness. When it comes to serotonin and generally feeling happier, looking at photos of cats will definitely help you out. Just as petting a cat has benefits for our sadness and anxiety, not everyone has a cat or has the option to constantly be with a cat when a moment of anxiety or other upsetting emotions arise. 

This is why we look at photos of cats. Looking at photos of cats helps get us halfway there and we'll take all the zen and all the cats we can get our paws on. 

Wishing you all a peaceful Sunday!

Animal Photos And The Touching Stories Behind Them

Do you ever come across a beautiful photo and wonder what the story might be behind it? Yeah, us too. That's why we decided to share some animal photos along with some of their stories so you can feel a deeper connection to the image you're looking at. 

Sometimes, the story behind an image makes it more powerful. Sometimes, it actually takes away from the narrative you've created in your mind. But the truth is always refreshing to read.

We hope you enjoy this lovely selection of beautiful animals their touching stories!

Heartwarming Vintage Photos Reveal The Bond Between People And Animals

If there is one universal truth, it's that people and animals have always shared a bond and connection with one another. Things might be different now but there are some things that never change, like the love between a little boy and his dog. Or the love between a little girl and her cat. Animals have always provided us with hope and joy and these vintage photos only further solidify that. 

It's comforting to know that no matter how much time passes, animals will always be there to bring us smiles and we humans will be there to love them in return.

Images Of Cats For A Moment Of Zen

Take a deep breath and look at these beautiful furry faces. Looking at photos of beautiful cats should provide you with some inner peace while you meditate on the New Year and all the things you want to accomplish this year. 

However, before you get too deep into that, take a moment to reflect and enjoy life by simply looking at photos of cats. It has been said in the past that that petting a cat helps relieve anxiety. However, not everyone has a cat that allows that relief so that's why we're posting fifty images of cats. We believe that looking at photos of cats is just as calming as petting one. So, please take a moment to let go of any negative feelings and simply enjoy this collection of cat pics.

Fifty Images Of Purrfection (AKA Cats)

Sweet, gorgeous cats. We simply cannot get enough of their purrfection. From the tip of their ears to the ends of their tail, cats are always a pleasure to look at. Seriously, have you ever been able to look at your cat and not get all squeaky as you rush to give them a million forehead kisses? They hold such power over us and we don't care because we would be so lost without them. 

They say that looking at cute animal images is just as beneficial as petting one, and while we're not sure if that is truly equivalent to one another, one thing we do know is that we are 10x more at ease when looking at photos of cats (or any other animal). Cat images are a balance of peace, hilarity, and sometimes chaos. Yet, each image brings us immense joy and we hope it provides you with those same elevated emotions.  

If you need another round of fifty cat images to bring you even more added happiness, look no further.

2020 Comedy Wildlife Photography Award Finalists

2020 has been one rocky year but luckily, in the world of animals, it's never been better! Since the beginning of the pandemic, it was the Earth and animals that have benefited from the lack of us humans destroying the world. 

And with the yearly competition, Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, we're further able to celebrate the magic that is animals, majestic or not. The incredible photographers that have been selected for this year's finalists have really delivered some animal gems! The following photos, captured at the moment, are hysterical and show us all that we're not alone when it comes to looking funny when our photos are taken! 

We were able to talk to Michelle, the head of Comedy Wildlife Photography Award's press office, and asked about the process of narrowing down so many wonderful photographs into the top finalists, she had this to say about the process, "... it is a brutal process. We started with over 7000 images - and whittled them down based on: level of humour, quality of photography, ability to get people's attention. It sounds relatively vague the last point, but we want to get our message of conservation across to as many people as possible, and the images must attract their attention!"

Well, these photographs selected definitely capture our attention! 

The winners will be announced on October 22nd, but the following images are all winners in our eyes! Congrats to all the photographers who made it to the finals and thank you for sharing such imagery with us -- we all could use this fantastic pick-me-up!

Pictures Of Russian Blue Cats And Nothing More

Russian blues are a particularly striking cat breed! With a silky coat of bluish-silver and bright green eyes, you can't help but be enchanted by them.

Oh, also, their personalities are heckin' adorable. They are known to be so incredibly playful, sweet, and cuddly. Russian Blues are known to be affectionate but not overly clingy. According to Hills Pet, "It's said that Russian blues train their owners rather than the owners training them, a legend that's been proven true time and again."

And interestingly enough, the name "Russian Blue" would mean the cat originated from Russia but no one knows for sure. It is believed to be originated from Archangel Isles, in North Russia. 

According to the Cat Fanciers' Association, "the Russian blue breed descended from the cats kept by the Russian Czars. Assuming the Russian blue did migrate from northern Russia, it was likely via ship to England and northern Europe in the mid-1860s."

This breed sure has a royal history! Not that we're surprised. Just look how regal they look:

Each week we bring you such potent images that there aren't enough words to describe them! 

The very meaning behind an image being worth more than 1000 words is that the image conveys such emotion, complexity, simplicity, and we simply do not have the words to fully describe its beauty in its entirety.  And that is actually beautiful in its own way. 

Sometimes, we don't even need words to express ourselves clearly. Enjoy the following gallery of stunning animal images that don't need any caption.
