Tumblr Thread: The 4 Foot Tall Red-Bearded Vulture

Guys, get ready to be scared and impressed all at the same time. We're about to give some love to yet another insanely underappreciated animal, but we're going to do it from the safety of our homes, because this bloody bird is a little terrifying. Meet the 4 foot tall red-bearded vulture. 

We know that birds are clawsome at this point, don't even lie. Parrots can impersonate different accents and be jerks to other pets. Crows sometimes collect gifts and bring them to people. And the red-bearded vulture? Well, the red-bearded vulture eats a diet of bones and covers itself in blood for a reason which, even after we read, we can't really comprehend. It's a cool bird though, and we always love learning more about the animal kingdom, even when it scares us a bit.

Tumblr Thread: Pregnant Feral Cat Falls In Love With New Forever Home

When animals are pregnant, they do what they need to do to keep their babies safe, even if it means asking for help from the scary huge humans. This cat momma is the purrfect example of that. Even though she was totally feral, she found herself in a situation where she needed help, and she was ready to take it, reluctantly trusting her human with her tiny kittens, because that's what loving animal mommas do. 

Amazingly, this totally feral cat slowly but surely fell in love with her new human and became a total cuddle monster. Now, she's a cuddler and loves attention, and her insanely adorable babies are in safe hands. It's a wholesome story all around of love and acceptance, and we hope you enjoy reading about it as much as we did. 

tumblr thread about a feral pregnant cat finding a forever home | thumbnail includes one tumblr post 'Font - sermna Follow There's a mama cat living in my garage named Felicia. When she first showed up she was almost completely feral. She knew humans dispensed food, and that was about as far as her trust and interest extended for many months. But y'all, she fucked up. She had kittens in my garage last May. She was at my mercy.'

Tumblr Thread: Petting Cats Is A Grooming And Bonding Activity

Cats are misunderstood. So often, unfortunately, cats are treated as if they are dogs or some other animal when they are clearly so very different than them - same as any other animal. It takes a while for a cat to get used to a human, and humans have a tendency to be impatient and expect affection sooner than they earned it. But when they do earn it, when aloof cats finally warm up to their humans, there is nothing more satisfying.  

Learn what a cat's body language means, when and how they want you to pet them, and your relationship with it will improve faster than you thought possible. This tumblr thread is about to help you learn. 

When your cat does finally warm up to you, make sure to send us wholesome and awwdorable pics of it so we can swoon right there with you!

informative tumblr thread about how to pet cats | thumbnail includes one tumblr post 'Font - prokopetz Follow If you're unsure how to pet a cat (i.e., maybe you didn't have cats around growing up), it can be helpful to bear in mind that petting is a grooming activity. Grooming each other is how cats bond. Of course, each cat will have individual preferences, but the fact that it's a grooming thing gives you two basic places to start: Scratch areas that the cat has difficulty reaching, like the '

Tumblr Thread: Tug Of War Between Lioness And 3 Professional Wrestlers

This is one video that you do not get to see every day, animal lovers. A tug of war enrichment game between a lioness and three professional wrestlers. Yup, you read that right. And guess who the winner is.

It's amazing, how easily we forget just how strong and dangerous these adorable fluffy big cats are. We look at pictures of wild animals and sometimes wish that they would interact with us puny humans - looking at insane videos of people who are part of a lion's pride, we feel jealousy, but then seeing a tumblr thread like this reminds us of just how dangerous they are. 

Although we don't love that this animal is in captivity in the first place, we are glad that the people working at the San Antonio Zoo are trying to give her such enrichment programs and make her day a little more fun.

Tumblr Thread: Humans Are Fae-Folk To Animals

We hear so many amazing and heartwarming rescue stories all the time of people coming across animals in need and doing the amazing thing of saving them. From people rescuing a poor underweight stray cat, to someone an unexpectedly heartwarming rescue of a sick 'ugly' fish, all the way to rescuing the same heckin' adventurous seal 4 times in 3 different countries. Humans will sometimes truly go a long way to help an animal.  

Have you ever wondered what such kindness could lead to in the long run? This tumblr thread shows you exactly what that leads to, and it is far more wholesome and magical than you may think.

Tumblr Thread: Delinquent Tegu Steals Some Blueberries

Sometimes, we come across a gem in the vast wasteland that is tumblr completely by accident - an animal story so ridiculous and unexpected, we don't even know what to do with it. Stories such as a tiny dramatic opossum infiltrating a shelter overcrowding run, or the jerk peacock who runs around scaring everyone, and today, we have the most amazing story of a delinquent tegu stealing blueberries. 

Thank you, kaijutegu, for sharing this ridiculous story. Never in our lives did we think we would fall in love so hard with a tegu, but alas, here we are. Of course, tegus are not the only thieves in the animal kingdom. So, if you want more stories of such delinquents, check out cats stealing literally everyone's food and this awwdorable video of a white fox cub stealing some raspberries

Tumblr Thread: Too Cute Animals Scrambling Peoples' Brains

Okay, so every single animal lover has had these moments of minute madness where we see an adorable tiny animal and our brain just- glitches. That's it. The only thing we can think of is that tiny itty bitty kitty that we're seeing as we walk. We stop, we take a picture, we send that picture to our friends. No matter what we were thinking about before, seeing that adorable animal makes us smile. 

Cute animals scramble people's brains - that's the only conclusion, and these hilarious tumblr stories prove just that. It's enough for us to see a cute animal for us to revert to our native language uncontrollably and start making baby noises at it. We know we've done it before, and you know what, we feel exactly zero shame about it lol.

Tumblr Thread: Informative Facts About How Cool Crows Are

It's amazing how many things we don't know about the animal kingdom. No matter how many cool and weird animal factsyour read and how many lists about underrated and unknown animals you look at, there will always be something new to learn. Did you know, for example, that crows are insanely smart animals? Well, you're about to learn some crow facts from this tumblr thread. 

Every time we see anything about crows, we are amazed by how cool they are. Birds, in general, are surprisingly amazing. Parrots speak in hilarious accents, pigeons put themselves to sleep, peacocks can be the biggest jerks in the world. Ugh, animals are so cool. The more we learn about the animal kingdom, the more we fall in love.

Tumblr Thread: Infiltration Of The Tiniest Most Dramatic Opossum

Sometimes, very strange things happen when the animal world and humans mix together - the kind of stories that you'd think would only happen in the kind of cartoons where calking off a cliff means staying afloat for multiple seconds before falling. But no, these stories are real. 

A tiny owl being found inside of the iconic Rockefeller Christmas tree? A person accidentally forgetting that their sugar glider is in their bra and going to a doctor's appointment, praying that the sugar glider doesn't wake up? A person getting chased by a cow on Valentines day? All real. All crazy. All hilarious. 

And this time, in this ridiculous tumblr thread, our story is about a tiny opossum infiltrating a cat carrier and dramatically screeching when it got caught. Yes, sounds insane, we know. And it's so heckin' funny. 

tumblr thread about an opossum that infiltrated a cat carrier 'Font - talesfromtreatment Follow Foiled! Today I got to go on one of our runs to more rural shelters to help relieve overcrowding there. We ended up bringing back 21 kittens and 10 dogs. So fun day. But this morning, while I was getting stuff together in preparation for the 90 minute drive.. This happened.'

Tumblr Posts: How Shark And Dolphin Stereotypes Are So Wrong

It is not only humans who have to deal with stereotypes. Animals have to deal with them too. For example, cats have to deal with the stereotype of being cold-hearted jerks, and while cats are indeed jerks, cats are also super affectionate to their humans. Birds have to deal with the stereotype that they are not loving, when birds are actually supper playful. And crocodiles, though terrifying, are also actually hilariously adorable underwater

And now, we're about to defend sharks and make fun of some dolphins, tumblrstyle. Because for some reason, even though dolphins are super smart and could totally be jerks if they wanted to, they're the cute ones, while the hungry sharks who just see you as food if you're in their food bowl get all the bad rep. Pssh. We're not okay with that.

tumblr posts about the stereotypes surrounding dolphins and sharks | thumbnail includes one tumblr post 'Font - O pizzaback-deactivated20201011 I hate how the stereotype is that dolphins are good and sharks are evil, when dolphins are so smart that they have the capacity for evil but sharks are simple fish who can only be true neutral, so even if a minority of dolphins are evil there are still more evil dolphins than sharks rageclit quality marine philosophy discourse'

Tumblr Thread: Dog Too Shy To Be Service Dog Becomes The Best Rescue

Dogs with jobs are so amazing. One of the most amazing jobs that dogs have though in our opinion are helping other humans. Service dogs are so important, and they always do such important jobs. And while every dog who becomes a service dog is so, so important, not every single dog can become a service dog. Some of them are simply too good and gentle for that job.

That is the story of this gorgeous black Labrador pupper. The little guy was just a tiny bit too shy to become a service dog, so he ended up being a rescue. He still stayed the very best boy though, and the things he was taught in service dog school have definitely come in handy for him protecting his human.

Tumblr Thread: Mourning Dog Befriends Duck And Gets Happy Again

Losing someone is always hard - for all of us. Apparently, that is true for animals as well. And it was especially true for George the dog. He had lost his very best doggo friend and has been heartbroken for 2 years since his passing, acting depressed and tired, not smiling nearly as much as he used to

But then one day, something amazing happened. Out of nowhere, a duck waddled into George's life and absolutely insisted on the two of them becoming best friends. And lo and behold, a heartwarming interspecies friendship developed. Soon, George began smiling again, and seeing him happy made us smile just as much.

Having come across a freezing human baby, Masha took it upon herself to save the baby. she curled up around it, kept it warm through the night, and in the morning, she strolled around and screamed until someone followed her and found the baby.
