Senior Male Cat And Dog Become Unlikely Surrogates To Orphaned Kittens

One of the most painful things to hear is when an baby animal gets orphaned. So many things can lead to it - from accidents to neglect, but it's always heartbreaking. That's why adoption stories are always our favorites. And this adoption story in particular is one of the most unique and heartwarming we've ever heard of. 

A senior male tomcat and a female dog who adopt litters of kittens. Yeah, get the tissues, everyone, this one will get you right in your heart.

People Tweet About Changing Their Minds And Adopting A Senior Pet At The Last Second

Most people, when going to adopt a pet, tend to go for the little ones- the baby kittens and puppies who they'll get to raise into their families. And of course, while every adoption and every rescue is to be celebrated, it's important to remember to adopt senior and sick pets too. And sometimes, it happens that this understanding comes to you as you're already in the shelter, about to pick up your tiny new baby, and then an older one-eyes cat looks at you, and finds its way right into your soul.

A tweet sharing a story like that went viral, and other twitter users with similar stories chimed in, sharing their own stories of last minute changes to adoption plans- ones that ended with them picking up the less fortunate animals and giving them a warm home too. 

So, bring in the tissues and let your heart warm with joy.

Instead I ended up adopting a 7 yr old chubby tub of love with sad eyes that were begging for a mommy. It was love at first sight. I can't wait to bring him home and spoil him silly.

Meet The Newly Adopted Faces Of The Week (19 Images)

Welcome to another Friday, animal lovers, and we hope you are ready for the most heartwarming and positive thing that you're going to see all week - one of our favorite segments, showcasing the newly adopted faces of the week.

Every week, to finish the week on the right paw, we look through the depths of the internet and find all of the most adorable pets that have been adopted this week. Seeing these pets finding their forever home makes us so happy, and there's no better way to start the weekend than with a smile. 

Like we do every week, it is important for us to thank every person who adopted a pet. And of course, every one of you who adopted an older pet or a pet with special needs is getting a special thank you from us. Every pet deserves an amazing forever home, and every person adopting deserves a big, big thank you from us.

She was the ugliest one at the shelter & that’s why they adopted her. She’s over 20 years old & such a geriatric marvel that the vet is treating her for free now. Happy dog with a happy home. u/JuJuJooie'

Heartwarming Tweets: Adopting Super-Senior Cats In Desperate Need For Love

Every single cat deserves to have the most loving and amazing forever home. Even the senior cats, even the cats with behavioral problems, the most "difficult" and "unadoptable" animals still deserve to have a forever home worthy of their love. 

We understand why it's hard to adopt a senior - it takes a big emotional toll knowing that they're not going to be with us for a very long time. So, we get why people don't adopt them as often as kittens, but that understanding makes us all the more appreciative when people do adopt senior cats, and especially super-senior cats. 

These tweets are going to make you 'aww' and also make your heart hurt ever so slightly - but in the best way. Your heart will be full of love reading these tweets.

Finally, after years and years, an elderly dog gets to chase a squirrel for the first time, and we have never seen anything more heartwarming. Its reaction to its owner repeatedly saying the word "squirrel" at him is the so human - from confusion to understanding to disbelief and then to pure, unadulterated joy. And the joy of a senior dog is unparalleled to anything else. 

It's enough for something as small and innocent as chasing a squirrel to bring energy and light into the eyes of a dog. And this video, while adorable and funny, will also make you want to get out the tissue box.

People Celebrating Their Senior Pets' Special Birthdays (Tweets)

No, I can't come hang out with you today, I'm celebrating my cat's Quinceañera. Yes, that's a perfect reason not to hang out with someone. This is a very important thing. And if the person you're talking to doesn't understand your reasoning for not hanging out with them, then they clearly don't know what it's like to have a pet, let alone a senior one. 

Every single birthday is precious with senior pets. Every day is deserving of celebration. Especially, when it comes to the most special kinds of birthdays - happy 10s, sweets sixteens, Quinceañeras. Need to look for as many reasons as possible to celebrate them. And today, we're joining in on twitter's celebration of senior pets, because they've earned it.

So, happy birthday to allllll the senior pets out there!! We hope you get many, many more birthdays such as this one.

When you think of human things that confuse the heck out of our cats, one of the most obvious ones is the vacuum. It is a monster that screams and eats at the same time. What can a cat do when it watches this monster eating two of his cat toys at once without effort? Enough running, the only choice is to fight... or is it? Maybe it's better to be cautious and run again.

This week's animation captures the eternal struggle between a cat and the vacuum cleaner. You may think that with enough time, your kitty will realize that the danger has passed, and maybe that's true buuuuut... today is not the day.

Three-Legged Senior Cat That Has Cancer Celebrates 13th B-day (Viral Thread)

Happy birthday, Goober! Goober is turning 13, and we are so in love with him. He has gone through so much -  chronic sinusitis, losing a leg to cancer and growing a tumor in another leg. He has stayed strong the whole way through, and we are so dang proud of him. He's doing okay, surrounded by people who love him, and he is such a brave survivor, all we want is to give him treats and love. 

Thank you to ReluctantGenius for sharing his story with us. We as well as the rest of the internet are more than happy to show some love to this adorable little senior furball. We hope he gets to live for a long, long time and enjoy every single minute of his life. 

If you have your own adorable animal stories to share, come tell us all about them in our Facebook community: ICanHas Storytime

viral imgur thread about a cat with cancer turning 13 thumbnail includes two pictures of a calm looking cat '"She lost a front leg to cancer in 2017 and I found a similar tumor in her other front leg. Thankfully, it's not growing as fast and doesn't seem to bother her as much... Happy birthday Goobs!" - ReluctantGenius'

Now, this is a story of a man who loved his dog so much, he left 5$ million for her in his will, and you know what? We're totally okay with that. Lulu's owner was a successful businessman who traveled a lot, and during his travels, he would leave his dog with Martha, who became Lulu's new caretaker. 

It is unclear what will happen with the money after Lulu passes, but until then, she will be the richest, most pampered 8-year-old dog in the world, and that makes us quite happy. We wish her and her caretaker a long and happy life together, and we hope the two treat themselves to the things that they want with this money.

Technology is amazing. It helps us in our everyday lives with so many things. But for our cats... it is a tiny bit confusing. Sitting and staring at the same strange light square every single day for hours instead of giving them attention? No wonder they love sitting on our laptops as much as they do. Well, that, and our laptops are warm and basically act as butt-heaters for them.

This week's animation of Earnie encapsulates the eternal struggle between cats and technology. And confused as he may be, this time, Earnie is winning.

A meeting like no other - your amazing, beautiful, affectionate cat with the.. rude, aloof, unfriendly, traitorous copycat in the mirror. The concept of a mirror is, of course, a foreign one to our genius feline fluffballs, and the first meetings between the "two" cats are ALWAYS iconic.  

Check out this week's animation of Earnie having its first ever encounter with the cat in the mirror, and it goes... just about as hilariously as you think it would. A worthy opponent, this copycat, always knows exactly what Earnie is planning on doing just before Earnie does it.
