Kitty Fangs: Teefies Sharp As A Knife And Cute As A Button

It's time to take a moment out of your day to immerse yourself in the overwhelming cuteness that is to come! Sleepy kitten teefies, mid yawn big teefies, mid meow teefies, we got all the kitty teefies right here for your viewing pleasure. I think we can all agree that cats are some of the most awwdorable and purrfect animal creatures. (And if you disagree just know that you're wrong.) 

But what about their cute little kitty teefies!! Lil kitty teefies, in our opinion, are probably the most overlooked and underappreciated aspect of kitty cuteness. Their physical attributions definitely contribute towards their intense charm. We often find ourselves ooing and ahhing over their big coats of floof, their sweet lil ears, and their kind sensitive smiles. But now, it's time to bring out your best toothie smiles and enjoy these teefie kitty pics!

Heroic Dog Saves Owner From Rattlesnake Bite And Survives

Man's best friend just became man's hero! Alex Loredo, owner of 7 year old Marley, can thank his furry four legged friend for literally saving his life. He had just gone outside to check his dryer, located behind his house, and all of a sudden he heard the snake, loud, and approaching. Marley, being the brave and heroic pooch that he is, swooped in to save the day.

Before he could even turn, Marley had run out the door, pushed him out of the way, and gotten in between the snake and and his owner, Alex Loredo. NBC Sandiego reports: "Marley, Loredo's 7-year-old Labrador, was then attacked by the snake. 'My heart just dropped,' said Loredo. The snake slithered away, and Loredo and his mom rushed Marley to the vet. 'It was complete panic,' Loredo described. 'My heart was racing and I didn't know what was going to happen next. To be completely honest, I thought he was just going to die in the car.' At the vet, the lab was administered a few doses of antivenin and admitted into the pet hospital for two days. 'That's the longest I've ever been away from him, so it was a really sad experience for me,' Loredo said. It's been two weeks since the bite and Marley has recovered. By now, Loredo says, even his playful spirit is back. The young friendly pup can now add hero to the long list of qualities Loredo says make him his best friend." We wish Marley a speedy recovery! He truly is a hero!

These awdorable little bundles of floof have had long, tiring days. Now they are expressing how they feel through this series of HUGE yawns.

When passing through a small Bulgarian village, this smol lil pupper was found laying next to a car. The helpful folks who found him saw him and immediately stopped to check out the situation. It turned out he was likely abandoned by his doggo mama or was born on the streets of this small village without help or support.

They took him home and cleaned him up! Despite fleas and some skin irritation, this tiny pupper was healthy, just in need of a good thorough washing up. He was given the full treatment. A deep shampoo and conditioning, and then a towel massage while he dried off. We loved seeing this tiny innocent pupper being pampered the way that he deserves to be! Now all we can do is hope that he finds a happy and loving forever home.

Rescue Cat Shows Off Pawsome Polydactyl Mittens

Bruce the Rescue Cat is a very special kitty indeed! Bruce is a polydactyl cat, meaning that he was born with a couple extra toes. Due to this, he has very unique and beautiful mittens, featuring his polydactyly. He uses his extra thumbs to his advantage! Polydactyl Cats are totally pawsome and have an amazing genetic mutation.

"These cats sporting numerous toes are one of the most awesome and fascinating felines; albeit their appearance can be somewhat bizarre to folks who have never seen one. In the United States, these supernumerary-toed kitties have often been called "mitten cats" or "Hemingway" cats. Ernest Hemmingway (the best-selling author of "The Old Man and the Sea" and countless other famous popular classic novels) was a passionate cat lover. He was presented with Snowball (a polydactyl cat) as a personal gift by a ship's captain in 1933. Snowball went on to produce many litters of ploydactyl kittens (the gene passes on). As many as 50 of Snowball's ancestors are living the life of luxury today; spoiled and pampered by the staff at the Hemingway Home Museum in Key West, Florida."  Via Florida Wild Veterinary Hospital. Fun facts and lots of toe beans? Yes please.

According to a BBC report: "A kitten called Dave brought in by a care home after a request by a resident has brought 'immense joy and happiness.' Staff at Edensor Care Centre in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, invited residents to add wishes to a wishing tree - and one responded saying they would like a cat to look after. Deputy manager Lindsey Milliken said: 'Our new kitten Dave has made a huge difference to the atmosphere in the care center and seeing the residents' faces light up when he is about is magical. He is bringing immense joy and happiness to residents and staff.' The home said following another wish, it had now raised funds to buy two special wheelchairs to use on the beach."

This story warms our hearts and brings smiles to our faces! We alwaysss talk about how therapeutic pets can  be. They bring so much love and happiness to our lives, and these kind folks got to experience that first hand. And a huge high five to little Dave for being such an awesome kitten and bringing so much happiness to the care home!

This sweet 15-year-old rescue dog does the cutest thing when her foster kittens get big enough to play! The kittens approach her very curiously, she gives them all the love and attention they could ever ask for. We are always amazed by an animal's instinctive to provide a nurturing and maternal presence for babies that are not theirs, or even of the same animal species!

There is no limit to what this sweet doggo will do for her foster kittens. She nurtures them, plays with them, even helps clean them up when they make a mess. We are sure that the doggo's owner appreciates all the extra help, keeping foster kittens is no joke! Kittens are awwdorable, but also quite messy. With doggo there to help, they keep things totally under control

Carpenter Bees: Blue Beauty With An Impressive Coat Of Fuzz

We have found yet another dazzling species. We had no idea that bees could even be blue, and then we stumbled upon the blue carpenter and became eager to learn more about it!

"The blue carpenter bee is found throughout Southeast Asia, India, and Southern China, and they're known for being large and heavy bees that live solitary lives, and are generally non-aggressive. While European honey bees (the most common species in Australia) grow to just 17 mm long, blue carpenter bees can reach a whopping 28 mm, which makes them appear eerily hefty." Via Australian Geographic. Wait a sec, not only are these bees beautifully blue, but they are also adorably chonky?! This just gets better and better.

"The blue carpenter bee is all about the females. It's the females who sport that brilliant blue pubescence (yep that's what the fuzz is called), and the females alone wield a stinger." Girl power!! Are we right ladies or are we right?  "The males are stinger-less, and have a more subdued, brown or greenish fuzz. Unlike honey bees, which build complex and intricate hives filled with tens of thousands of workers and a single queen, carpenter bees live alone, burrowing into trees to create a perfect little nest for themselves." Via Australian Geographic.

Red-tailed Hawk With Injured Wing Found By Pedestrian And Taken To Vet For Treatment

Oof we absolutely hate to see animals that are injured, or in pain. However, it fills our hearts with hope and wholesome goodness when kind folks passing by manage to spot this phenomenon and promptly intervene! We truly believe that it is part of our responsibility as humans on earth to protect our fellow animal species and always lend a helping hand!

Today an Imgur user came across an injured red-tailed hawk and immediately intervened. Let's learn a bit more about red-tailed hawks shall we? According to All About Birds: "This is probably the most common hawk in North America. If you've got sharp eyes you'll see several individuals on almost any long car ride, anywhere. Red-tailed Hawks soar above open fields, slowly turning circles on their broad, rounded wings." Our bird in question was taken to the nearest vet who could accommodate her! We wish her a super speedy recovery.

Hi friends! Today we have a found a wholesome video of sweet dears. (Get it? Dears? Because they're deer…Okay you get it.) Boo is a little white fawn who was found by herself in a back yard. After being cared for throughout her babyhood it's time to be return to the wild! She and her friends get soooo adorably excited to return to their roots, watch them wag their tails and leap for joy. 

Sweet boo is a very cautious fawn, she makes sure not to be too trusting of her human caretaker. She slowly warms up a little, and enjoys spending time with the other fawns in the backyard. We loved watching boo grow and blossom into somewhat of a mother figure for the other fawns! The happiness she expresses when released into the wild absolutely made our day.

Meet The Oldest Known Land Animal Alive Today: Jonathan The Tortoise

Hello, everyone! Get ready to meet someone so very wise, so very old, and so very…wrinkly? This Guinness World Record holder is the oldest known land animal alive today, clocking in at just 190 years old, it's Jonathan the Tortoise! Born in 1832, Jonathan has lived through many significant historic events including wars and over 40 American presidents!

According to an article by the Guinness World Records: "His estimated year of birth also predates the release of the Penny Black, the first postage stamp (1840), the building of the first skyscraper (1885) and the completion of the Eiffel Tower (1887) – the tallest iron structure.  Other human milestones to have taken place in his long life include the first photograph of a person (1838), the first incandescent light bulb (1878) and the first powered flight (1903)."

"Although originating from the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean, Jonathan has resided on the remote island of St Helena in the South Atlantic since 1882.  
When Jonathan was brought to St Helena, he was already fully grown. Based on known data for this species, that would indicate he was about 50 years of age at the time (hence his estimated birth year of 1832 to make him the longest-lived animal on land). Jonathan was gifted to the then-governor of the Overseas British territory, William Grey-Wilson (in office 1890–97), and he has lived at the governor's residence ever since." Via Guinness World Records.
