Big Cats Being As Pawdorable And Silly As Kittens (Pics)

If you're a cat lover anything like us, then one thing is definitely true about you - you think ALL cats are purrfect, and that, of course, includes big cats. Wild cats are adorable, and that's just fact. No matter how scary they are or how dangerous, if a wild cat turns onto his back and shows off its belly, we would definitely want to pet it, no matter the risk.

Today, we're going to show our love to the most definitely underappreciated wild cats in our midst. And, we're going to prove - once and for all - that big wild cats are just as awwdorable as the tiniest itty bitty kittens

Informative Tumblr Thread About The Differences Between Big Cats

If you're a cat lover like us, you have a soft spot in your heart not just for house cats but also for big cats. You'd pet them if you could, and you know it. And you wish you could spend more time around big cats like that and get to know them better, learn about each of them - what makes them special and different and what their personalities are like. 

Well, say thank you to tumblr user carnegiemuseumnaturalhistory for deciding to share their big cat knowledge with us and teaching us - unlucky big cat lovers who can't spend time with big cats - about what makes wild cats unique. Reading this has both educated us and made us want to cuddle a snow leopard even more.

It's such a beautifully rare thing to catch a glimpse of wild animals doing their wild animal things in the wild. The little glances we get are always super precious, whether it's just them hanging out and doing nothing or whether it's like today's video of the so painfully adorable snow leopards showing off their precious roars and their tini-tiny little cubs snuggling in the snow

Honestly, we're not sure who's cuter, the large squeaky roaring leopards brushing up against rocks or their little babies, waiting for their parents to bring food back to them. Regardless, our cold, cold hearts are absolutely melted by these snowy creatures, and we know yours will be too.

Awwdorable And Gorgeous Snow Leopard Appreciation Gallery

Snow leopards are everything. They just are. They are the purrfect blend of fierceness, cuteness, and just overall beauty. Their gorgeous fur and they're oh so fluffy! We don't think we could ever get tired of looking at such purrfection. 

International Snow Leopard Day was just a few days ago and we must honor these beauties by looking at their adorable pictures and watching their squeal-worthy videos. Did you know that snow leopards can't roar like their other feline friends? Instead, snow leopards use a call which has been described as a 'piercing yowl' that is so loud, it can be heard over the roar of a river!  

There is said to be only as few as 4000 snow leopards left in the wild. However, because they are so incredibly inclusive, it's difficult to get an accurate number. Snow leopards are being threatened due to climate change, habitat loss and deterioration, poaching, and more. Read about how you can help save these elusive beauties. 

A majority of the photographs below are taken by the talented @walkuptosky on Instagram. Check out her photography for endless incredible animal photographs, you won't be disappointed.

What a young beauty! Introducing Ahava, a three-month-old female snow leopard cub that has made her public debut at the Brookfield Zoo in Illinois.

Snow leopards are one of the rarest wildcats to come across, sadly, only as few as 4,000 snow leopards still remain in the wild. They are often solidarity creatures, who can be referred to as the "ghost of the mountain," due to their scarce and elusive sightings.

These Photos Of Snow Leopards Nibbling At Their Tails Will Brighten Your Day

So we asked the question.. why do snow leopards nibble at their tail? Yes it's darn cute, but is there a reason for it? The answer..

While living in very cold temperatures, they will often use their very fluffy tail to block the cold from their nose/ face! But, they also do it because they are bored! Just like cats, snow leopards like to play with their tails in order to pass the time and boredom.
