The intense hyperactivity of kittens is something magical to behold. It is the cutest thing, and it is to be cherished, because before you know it, your kitten will most likely grow to be a lazy fluffball that will maaaaybe chase after a fly sometimes. Of course, we love our lazy senior fluffballs just as much as we loved them when they were babies. But, it's exactly why we sometimes decide to bring a kitten friend to our older cat, and when the clash happens... it is heart-meltingly adorable.

Abandoned Polar Bear Cubs Get Pampered By Their Adoptive Human Moms

Two adorable bear cubs have been abandoned by their polar bear momma and are now being rescued by four new adoptive moms, and it's one of the cutest things we've seen. The cubs get pampered so much - getting manicures, massages, warm milk, and undivided attention. They are now seven weeks old and growing super fast, and we can't wait to see these cuties get even bigger. 

As dailymail reports, the cub's "seven-year-old mother, Seryozhka, from the Novaya Zemlya archipelago in the Arctic, built a den for her new cubs at a safari park in Gelendzhik, but then rejected the crying pair." The keepers at the zoo attempted to coax the mother into giving milk to the babies and failed, but she "gave blood which was used to give serum to the babies, vital as an immunity boost."

Luckily, the mother didn't hurt the cubs, and keepers at the zoo were able to step in and take care of the little babies. Their new foster moms are a pair of 39-year-old twins, Anastasia and Olesya Sakhatskaya, 32-year-old Maria Moroz, and 31-year-old Yelena Milovidova.

"They don't seem to distinguish between the four of us," said Elena. "They know the scent of our skin and clothes, and sensing any of us getting close to them means just one thing: mother is here, and food is coming." Yelena Milovidova, deputy director of the Gelendzhik Safari Park, adds: "There were no previous cases of nurturing polar bear cubs rejected by their mother in a Russian zoo. This is the first experience for us."

The cubs who have only recently opened their eyes now weight over 4 kilograms and should start doubling in weight every few weeks. When they're three months old, they'll start going on walks outside. 

"In the world there were only five or so cases of polar bear cubs raised since birth in captivity," continues Milovidova. "I do hope that we will succeed." And we really, really hope so too. We wish these cuties all the luck in the world and want to thank their caretakers who are really giving them all the love.

Check out pictures and a video of the cubs below, and for more wholesome bear stories, read about a circus bear living in terrible conditions being rescued and moved to a sanctuary.

Tumblr Thread: One Of The Smallest But Fiercest Kittens

We all know that cats are the fiercest, coolest, most badass little beings. Even our little spoiled fluffballs have a little tiger in them. But the The Black Footed cat, well that is a true fierce kitty. Thank you, tumblr, for introducing us to this special wild kitty

Tiny even when it's fully grown, this murderbaby has a higher kill success rate than actual lions. And you know what, looking at it... we are truly terrified. We totally don't want to lift it up and cuddle it and give it snacks and kiss its fierce little head. Totally not. Then again, we love cats so much that we would probably say the same thing about actual lions, so... gimme that little murdermuffin, i wanna give it a smooch.

Welcoming And Taking Care Of Two Newborn Puppies With Cleft Lips

It's time to welcome two new puppies into the world!!! 

But these two puppies are not regular puppies. The two babies were both born with cleft lips, making them extra special in many different ways. The cuties will have a harder time than most going through their little doggo journeys. Especially now that they are so, so tiny, they will need some extra special love and care. 

Luckily, they found themselves in the hands of an amazing human. Working in a sanctuary and having taken care of at least one dog that we know of with a cleft lip, imgur user thevaiobandit101 knows what to do. The tiny pups will be tube fed for the next few weeks and will be a lot of work, but they are in good hands. 

Good luck to the puppies and to thevaiobandit101, we wish you an easy and amazing life!

Tumblr Thread: Saving And Adopting A Helpless Stray Kitten

All it takes is a little kindness to change an animal's life. This heartwarming tumblr thread proves just that. This tiny kitten, later named Nux, was found at the bottom of violetohara's stairs, and though it was a bit hard to catch the kitten at first, violetohara immediately knew that if they catch the little thing, they'll adopt her right away.

And that's exactly what happened. The kitten was sick, had burrs and sticks in her fur and was clearly unwell, but all it took is a visit to the vet and one day in her new forever home for her to start purring and become of of the cutest kittens in the whole world. Nux is still doing great, of course, because with a forever home as loving as this, who wouldn't?

Took this little guy to the vet, got the fleas and dirt washed off him, got some antibiotics for a slight cold, but he is otherwise fine. Kneading and purring up a storm, eating a lot and being heart-crushingly adorable.'

Feisty Adopted Kitten Loves Going To Work With Her Human (Viral Thread)

Meet Pepperoni, the most adorable tiny feisty kitten who loves biting people, taking naps in silly places, car rides, and chilling at work with her human.

Peppi's owner found her under a dumpster a couple months ago when she was only 4-5 weeks old and weighed less than a pound and absolutely fell in love with her and adopted her. And seeing this little girl, we totally understand that love. In a viral thread on imgur, anzinipanini talks about her journey with this kitten, and we only continue to fall in love with her. 

And though anzinipanini begins her thread with "[t]his post isn't super important," we and other users totally disagree. This post and Pepperoni are extremely, extremely important.

Who said that only cats are capable of converting from a solid to a liquid state? These baby bunnies hiding in glass cups look just like fluffy white milk and we're sorta not-so-secretly obsessed with them. This adorable video is brought to us by @ekdikisis, who has some words for some certain advocates out there:

"The bunnies were unharmed and perfectly fine. They aren't stuck in the cups (bunnies are made out of so much fluff they can squeeze through holes a quarter of their size) and could easily move about - they just didn't want to move. Bunnies in fear will not be comfortable enough to doze off. 

And if you can't tell the difference between a bunny paralyzed with fear or comfortable enough to sleep, you clearly don't have enough experience in taking care of bunnies. A scared or traumatized bunny will never be able to fall asleep if they feel even slightly uncomfortable. They'll struggle whenever given the chance to escape and their hind legs are powerful enough to attempt to kick out of their constraints - a glass cup will never be able to hold them if they aren't satisfied with their situation. 

Any bunny owner will be able to tell you their own struggles they've had, from a kit to an adult bunny, so long as they aren't happy with their position or situation, you'll end up losing the battle with scars to bear."

That's really good to know! Now we just love the video even more. We love us some bunny content, bunnies with super-duper long ears, bunnies donning cute hats, pretty much anything bunny-related, it's a guarantee we'll adore it.
