Thank you so much for giving all these animals a life full of love. And a huge-ultra-mega shout out to all those who adopt senior animals or animals in need of some extra love and care.

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.

Senior Cat With Perpetually Derpy Face Goes Viral

Meet Gumball- the 10-year-old cat with the perpetually derpy face who the internet (and us) has fallen in love with. She's clingy and loving (and a little gassy), and in her owner's words, she couldn't be "more perfect."

I mean, how can you not fall in love with her? This most beautiful little goblin who was adopted only about 6 months ago has been bringing nothing but joy to her owner, and now, she's bringing joy to the rest of us too. 

Thank you, GumballtheGoblin, for sharing your gorgeous goblin with us. We wish her an easy and long long life forward with many more derps and viral posts.

You may look at your bathroom and see a place where you clean yourself, but for you cat, that room is basically a torture chamber. The sink is a slip-and-slide, the toilet is a water bowl that they should DEFINITELY not drink from (they've smelled it, they understand), and the bath they will only be curious about once. Only once. 

Check out this week's animation of our favorite senior cat - Earnie - where he discovers the bathroom for the first time. In the battle between Earnie and the water... the water wins.

Cheezburger Users Share Heartwarming Senior Pet Adoption Stories

It's true that every single adoption needs to be celebrated - taking the time to take care of any animal, giving it the love and support it needs. It is also true that there is something extra special about adopting senior pets

Taking in a senior even though you know that they won't live as long is emotionally challenging. Yet, making that decision and deciding to give all your love to a less fortunate pet is something that we should not only be celebrating but also something that we should be grateful for, because not everyone can take a pet like that on. 

When our amazing ICanHasCheezburger users decided to share with us their stories of senior pet adoptions, we knew that saying thank you to them would only be right. And if you have some of your own stories, come share them in our new Facebook community - ICanHas Storytime

stories of adopting senior pets thumbnail includes one faceboook comment 'Text - Alison Edwards Nearly 3 years ago we took in a 10 year old cat who's owners were going to have put to sleep as they were fed up with him.

Tumblr Thread: Senior Cat With The Face Of A Human

Everyone, say hi to Mincha - the 14 year old senior cat who has the face of a human baby while also looking like an old grandma. Say hi loudly though, she'll probably understand you considering that she's definitely at least part human, but she needs you to speak loudly so she can hear, okay?

Thank you to aoryuucchi for sharing pictures of this awwwdorable senior kitty in this tumblr thread. There is nothing that we love more than giving love back to well taken care of senior cats, and this expressive little lady looks like she has a lovely forever home to be happy in

If you have you own unique cuties, come share their stories in our Facebook community - ICanHas Storytime - so we'll be able to give your fluffballs some luuuurv too.
