Animal Bodies With Cat Faces: Artistic Photoshopped Images

Today we are featuring a very cool artist! Hailing from Moscow and going by @koty_vezde on Instagram, Galya is an amateur photoshopper. Their hobby has been developed over the past year and they have created a whole cat-like universe! They make funny mixes of cats with different animals and objects. As you can see for yourselves, we've got here almost every imaginable combination of cats and other animals!

We love supporting artists from around the world and featuring their work! We love all things animal. That means art, science, day to day, humor, and everythinggg in between. And it is a well known fact that we have a super weak spot for all things cat. Henceforth, we instantly fell in love with Galya's work and hope that all of you enjoy it just as much as we did!

Wolf Pups Mark First Litter To Be Born In Colorado Since 1940s

According to a report by World Animal News: "Between June 4th and 8th, Colorado Parks and Wildlife staff members observed three new wolf pups with their parents, collared wolves who are known to reside in the state." This exciting news had many Colorado locals feeling hopeful for these pups' future in the state.

Even the Governor shared his thoughts of excitement in a statement! "Colorado is now home to our first wolf litter since the 1940s. We welcome this historic den and the new wolf family to Colorado. With voter passage last year of the initiative to require re-introduction of the wolf by the end of 2023, these pups will have plenty of potential mates when they grow up to start their own families," said Governor Jared Polis.

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

You would think that after such a long time in lockdown, our pets would finally get used to us staring at the computer screen all the time and occasionally talking to it. But this awwdorable French bulldog is the ultimate proof that they have not. It's obvious that this pupper is confused by the idea of this light box somehow being more interesting than her, and we can't blame her. 

Animals and Zoom calls are always the funniest mix. Who could ever forget the viral twitter thread about cats sitting in on Zoom calls? Iconic. This may be one of the only things that we actually liked about lockdowns. Well, that and the fact that we got to cuddle our doggos all day every day for as long as we wanted to.

Giant Tortoise Apprehended By Local Police

According to a recent BBC report: "A giant tortoise managed to make it about a mile across a town before being apprehended by police. Titan, who weighs in at a whopping nine stone (60kg), was found in Kesgrave, near Ipswich, on Friday. It took three police officers to lift the wayward pet into a van and drive him home to his worried owner." Now that is one heavy tortoise! 

"Richard Aston said it was a 'mystery' how Titan made it that far as he had not broken through his shelter. 'Maybe he teleported there,' he said. When police called Mr. Aston, he was not at home so had no idea his 35-year-old pet African sulcata tortoise was on the loose. 'There was no sign of the fence being broken, and he can't jump over it - it's three feet high,' he said." How on earth did Titan manage to find his way out of his enclosed area?? All that matters is that now he's safe and sound!

What Pregnancies Look Like In The Animal World (Viral Thread)

No matter how much knowledge we have about nature, every once in a while, something will shock us and remind us how amazing nature actually is. Whether it's the incredible bonds between animals, whether it's coming across a list of beautiful animals with unusual color mutations, or whether it's something as simple yet as amazing as seeing the way pregnancies look like in nature. 

Even thought every birth of an endangered animal is something that we celebrate, the actual is something that we, for whatever reason, haven't thought about very often. But, this viral thread on imgurhas opened our eyes, and has made us have a whole new appreciation for the heartwarming relationships between animal mommas and their babies.

Before And After Adoption Glow Ups: Aint Nothing A Little Love Can't Cure

As much as we hate to think about it, all too often animals are neglected, underappreciated, and can end up in animal shelters or worse. On the flip side, adoption can be the most amazing experience a neglected animal can go through in their lifetime. Every week, we highlight some of the amazing transformations that occur when a newly adopted animal is showered with love and affection.

The transformations that can occur even in a relatively short amount of time can be drastic! It just goes to show that there is nothing a little love cannot cure. These animals have so much love to give and they are just waiting, often in shelters, for their hoomans. We always recommend taking a trip down to your local shelter, if not to adopt than at least to get to know some of the amazing souls that call it home.

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.

Heartwarming Stories Of Cats Showing Affection To Their Humans

People who say cats are cold are people who we would bet have never had a cat of their own. It's true, sometimes it can take a cat a long time to warm up to its human, but with enough love and patience, most cats will show you the affection that you so deeply want. Cats are not cold at all, they just have funny ways of being compassionate sometimes. 

Other times, cats will show their humans so much love, we will have no choice but to feel incredibly blessed and thankful. And when our purrfect ICanHasCheezburger Facebook users shared such stories with us, we were so amazed, we had to share them with you as well. Get the tissues our, friends, because this collection has got some tear-jerkers. 

Facebook comments about cats being affectionate thumbnail includes one Facebook comment 'Font - Mary Gillis I had just lost my 15 year old kitty to a sudden illness who I so dearly loved. I was in bed crying my heart out and our other cat who never once came on the bed, came up and snuggled against me purring up a storm. It was like she knew he was gone and wanted me to know it was going to be alright. ODS 18 Like · Reply · Message 1d'
