Thread: Saving And Adopting A Newborn Kitten With Umbilical Cord Still Attached

There can be many reasons in the wild for which even the most loving animal mommas would reject one of their babies. Nature is cruel like that. And though we don't know the exact reason behind the abandonment of this itty bitty kitty in this story, we can only be thankful that it turned out the way it did. 

Abandoned by its mom, a newborn kitten with its eyes still closedand the umbilical cord still attached to it was thankfully found by YucateCosa's neighbor. Following that, after getting lucky approximately 53 more times, this kitten found its new forever home. Thank you to YucateCosa for taking care of her and giving her the love and care that she deserved. Few could have and would have done what you did, and we are so, so thankful.

Twitter Thread: Rescuing And Returning A Baby Chick To Its Family

The animal kingdom, as much as we love it, can be a pretty brutal place. Many times, for various reasons, helpless animals find themselves alone and unable to fend for themselves. Like, when 5 cheetah cubs tragically lost their mom and had to be rescued or when a bobcat was dropped on its head by a hawk as a kitten and now lives in a sanctuary because it doesn't understand it's a predator. Even the fiercest animal won't survive on its own like that.

And if it's a tiny helpless baby chick like in this twitter thread, its chances are closes to none. Thankfully, this chick found itself in the hands of a wonderful human who decided to rescue it. Because all animals, especially newborn ones, deserve to be saved. Whether it's a tiny squeaky fox cub stuck in a river, a sick 'ugly fish who was abused by its previous owners, or this itty bitty baby chick who's momma... is not the most responsible momma.

We have hella chickens over here so seeing them is normal but the chicks are never alone or too far from their mom. I don't know what to do'

Let's be honest, there is nothing cuter in the whole world than baby animals. It doesn't matter which animal it is - from itty bitty tiny kittens to awwdorable and underappreciated hyaena cubs - so long as the animal is in its teeny weeny baby form, we love it. They are so new to this world, looking around and discovering every little bit of it. 

Their innocence about the world is part of what makes them so cute. That as well as their occasional mild confusions. Like this adorable noisy baby seal who, for some unclear reason, confused a photographer filming it for its momma. Well, we suppose that could happen to anyone, and we get to watch the footage of this squeaky baby.

The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee Gathers Again (Pics)

When the itty bitty kitty committee gathers, everyone must stretch their tiny murdermittens and wake up from their naps. The committee is the time during which these tiny but fierce felines discuss world domination. 

In the subject matter, we have:
1. how do we get more treats from humans?
2. did the idea I had when I was on catnip a good one?
3. do we take over the world now or after another nap? 

So, gather 'round, everyone, and welcome all of these perpetually sleepy tiny and awwdorable kittens, and let itty bitty kitty committee commence!

If you have ever had any doubt in your mind about just how fierce teeny weeny kittens can be, this video of the tiniest most ferocious wild cat will convince you. Beware though! This video contains one of the most ferocious battles in the entirety of the animal kingdom - the epic fight between a tiny baby jaguar and its mother's ear. 

Yeah, we know, it can be too much for people who do not have the stomach for it, especially considering that the little baby loses. But even though it lost, it still proved just how ferocious it is with its sharp little murdermittens and totally unexpected jumping attacks. We will never underestimate tiny jaguars again, nor will we want to cuddle and pet them more than anything in the world.

Thread: Rescue Of An Itty Bitty Injured Black Kitten

Coming across an abandoned tiny and helpless kitten on the street is a heart-wrenching thing each and every time. Our hearts cannot help but go out to them, and yet, as much as we wish we could help, that's not always a possibility. Thankfully, this injured awwdorable itty bitty black kitten has lucked out, being rescued by some wonderful people. 

After not finding the kitten's mom, Covidnineteen on imgur picked the kitten up and took it home, bringing it to the vet, feeding it from a bottle, gently introducing it to the purrfect senior cat and the dog in the house. Not everyone would have undertaken such a task, so we feel like we absolutely have to say thank you. We wish this adorable rescued kitten as well as its family a long and most happy life together.

Poor guy has sores all over his foot pads. He spent the whole drive trying to feed out of my beard.'

One of the most tragic yet hopeful stories we have seen this year so far - 5 itty bitty adorable cheetah cubs have tragically lost their momma and were orphaned. Thankfully, after being searched for and rescued by some incredible people, the Kevin Richardson Foundation and Dinokeng Game Reserve has stepped in to give them the second chance that they deserve. They are miracle babies, and they are lucky in that they may yet return to the wild. 

They need help of course. The bond between cheetahs and their mommas is a crucial one, and without her, they will need a lot of care. You can be one of the people to help them by donating. We hope to see much more of these tiny but fierce felines as they grow up into the hunters they were always meant to be.

Yes, it's Sunday. We know, we get it. Another weekend has come to a close and tomorrow a new week awaits! Let's make this week our best, most positive week yet! It's always our mission to help me you a little happier and smile a littler bigger, especially at the end of the weekend. Keeping this mission in mind, we have found for you a video that left us smiling like a kid who hears the ice cream truck pulling into his neighborhood!

Rocky is one big doggo! This handsome German Shephard captures our attention and our hearts in this video in which he is introduced to a baby kitten for the first time. Rocky is hesitant at first, he is sure to give the kitten a thorough sniffing to further investigate the situation. As they begin to warm up to each other, the charming magic ensues. It's a doggo, it's a kitty, it's pure wholesome goodness. Enjoy!

Twitter Thread: User Buys Tiny Chair For Cat, Hilarity Ensues

There's always something weird happening on animal twitter. Some strange story will come up and shock us by how unexpectedly hilarious it is. Did any of us think that we'd sit there laughing at a cow chasing someone  on Valentines day? No, we didn't, but my goodness, it was hilarious. What about that time that twitter user weirded some cats out by offering them sunny side up eggs? Or that time we read about a woman resurrecting a bird with her breasts? Yeah, animal twitter always has something weird going on, and today is no different. 

Having bought a tiny chair for their cat, this twitter user sent a picture of their garden to their mom, and hilarity ensued. Goodness, we love what animal twitter has to offer. It's impossible to get bored.

Listen, you're not even prepared for this explosion of cuteness and adorableness and- omg we're sO in love with this itty bitty fox cub. We love all foxes, don't get us wrong, all foxes are beautiful and majestic, but this tiny adorable white fox cub specifically is something else. 

She is one of the most adorable thieves, and she has stolen... some raspberries. Yeah, we know, we know, cutest thing in the world. She's the newest fox cub at SaveAFox rescue, and although she has only just started getting used to the other foxes and the location, clearly, she is more than comfortable enough to commit some crimes. No kidding, we're 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.'

You may not have thought about it many times in the past, but otters are heckin' adorable. Yeah, we know, it's not the first animal that people tend to think of when you ask them what the cutest animal is, but it's true. Otters are awwdorable, and baby otters are somehow even cuter.

Unconvinced? This video of baby otters taking their first steps is about to change your mind. They're so wiggly and so tiny. If you looked at them from afar, you might legitimately confuse them with kittens, they're so similar. 

And if this video doesn't change your mind completely, allow us to offer more proof. Take a look at this otter who became best friends with a cat or at this most adorable de-chonking otter who's too excited about his salmon cheat day. That's it. Mind changed.

Get the tissues ready, everyone, because this video is about to get them tears out of you. When these kind humans came across a tiny, abandoned, freezing and shaking kitten in the forest, they couldn't not leave it there. They could do nothing but save the tiny squeaking kitten. You can literally see the poor thing shaking when they pick it up. 

Every animal rescue story is heartwarming and at the same time difficult to watch, but especially when it's baby abandoned animals. Whether it's a fox cub getting rescued from a river or even a fish rescued from its abusive owners. We're so, so thankful for each person who takes the time to help these poor animals. You're doing the most important work.

Nature can be a pretty harsh place. You have to fight for your territory, stand up to predators, even if they are ten times your size. And you have to be fearless. And this turtle definitely was. It's not something you see every day - a teeny weeny turtle standing up to two enormous lions. You'd worry that, oh no, this will end in catastrophe, but amazingly, not only does nothing bad happen to the turtle, it managed to chase the lions away from its waterhole.

Maybe it's because lions are just large kittens in disguise, and they're nicer than they seem. Maybe it's because they know how resilient turtles are and that turtles can easily outlive them in the wild. Or maybe, it's because cats of all sizes know, through the experience of their own species, that one of the fiercest wild cats in the world is a tiny kitten, so tiny doesn't mean not ferocious.

We all know that dogs are the best animals ever, right? Dogs are so loving, they're excited about the smallest things, no matter how big a dog is, it knows how to be gentle. Dogs always put everyone's comfort before theirs, and this awwdorable golden retriever is no different. 

He's huge, especially in comparison to these itty bitty newborn kittens. Yet, despite his size, he makes sure to be the most gentle with them, sniffing them and trying to understand what these little wiggly creatures are. This is good for their future too, of course, because getting used to this large doggo now will allow them to understand each other better in the future and become best friends. It's heartwarming all around, and the feels... the feels are hitting hard with this video.
