Are you ready for a double explosion of cute? Well, prepare yourself because you're getting not one but two - yes two - tiny baby stoats, and they're meeting each other for the first time. Their reaction to meeting one of their own for the first time is the most adorable thing in the world. They're just so excited, so happy, so instantly friendly and loving. 

Stoats are one of these relatively unknown animals that we feel never get enough love, so this is an opportunity to give stoats some of the love that they deserve. They're so cute, so quick, so energetic, and their cuteness should not be underestimated- as you're about to see.

Viral Twitter Thread Of Pawdorable Cats Sleeping On Their Faces

Sometimes, the strangest things go viral on cat twitter, and we accept it and love it and give it as much love as possible. This time, cat twitter has presented us with one of the strangest sleeping phenomena in the cat world. I mean, we all know that cats love sleeping in the weirdest positions and in the weirdest place, but the cat faceplant always takes the cake.

How are they breathing? Are they going through an existential crisis? Are they okay? Should we give them a snack? Doesn't matter. First things first, we should take a picture. And twitter users did just that, adding their own adorable furballs to this viral cat thread and giving us all the cuteness we could have ever asked for this weekend.

Baby Snapping Turtles Look Like Tiny Dinosaurs In Disguise

Turtles and tortoises are some of the coolest animals on the planet in our opinion. They live for so long, they're so resilient despite being so slow, they're chill and - don't forget - they're so adorable. They look like they're little prehistoric dinosaurs left on the earth from some time in the past, strolling around, watching the world evolve all around them. 

All turtles have that feeling to them, but baby snapping turtles really encapsulate that dinosaur image. On top of that, they might be some of the most adorable turtles we've ever seen. And considering how cute we think all turtles are, that's a real achievement lol.

Celebrating The Beary Important International Polar Bear Day

February is coming to an end, and it's time to celebrate one of our favorite days ever - international polar bear day. Why do we love it so much? Well, because we love polar bears, of course. They are so cute, so fluffy, they are a vulnerable animal species whose population is decreasing, and polar bear day is the best day to bring some awareness to the struggles facing this animal. As well as look at super adorable pics of them

If any of you love polar bears as much as we do and want to help with the conservation effort of these huge teddy bears, consider going to Polar Bears International and learning about them as well as donating to help keep them safe and happy. Have a beary happy polar bear day, everyone!

Three Months After State-Wide Rescue Mission, Orphaned Baby Bat Released

Three months ago, in an event that puzzled wildlife carers, hundreds of bat pups were abandoned by their mothers at the Rockhampton Botanical Gardens. The number of bats that needed help was so massive, it overwhelmed local volunteers. It ended up taking three three groups from Brisbane and one from Townsville getting together to rescue all of these bats. 

Today, according to ABC News, "[m]ore than 70 baby black bats on the brink of starvation... are now being released into the wild after carer groups from across Queensland united in their rescue."

Read more of the story and check out pics of the adorable bats below.

Pets Showing Love In Strange But Wholesome Ways

There have been times before where we've been asked, by people who don't have pets: "how do you know that they love you back and don't only love the food you give them?" And in our hearts, the answer is obvious - we can feel it. In every interaction, strange and unique as it may be - we feel the love that our pets have for us

Today, we're bringing you some proof. Our animal-loving ICanHasCheezburger Facebook users shared with us strange ways in which their pets show them they love them, and they were all so hilariously adorable, we simply had to share them with the rest of you guys. If you love your pet and treat it right, it will show you love back. 

If your pet has some weird ways of showing love too, come tell us about it in our Facebook community: ICanHas Storytime

It always makes us happy to see cats and dogs hanging out together, considering how different they are. So, when they get along, it's always quite special. But these two huge huskies have taken their awwdorable friendship to a whole other level, surrounding the cat and guarding it. From what? We're not sure. But we appreciate the effort anyway. The cat is definitely not complaining either. 

We're just happy knowing that these guys are enjoying each other's company and that they have each other's backs. Well, at least the dogs have the cat's back. But we would like to believe that the cat would very fiercely glare at anyone who dared approach its guard doggos.

If I Fits, I sits: The Feline Adventure Continues

It is a known fact that cats are indeed liquid. Their bodies have the ability to contort in such ways that would be shocking to inexperienced cat people. But we - cat owners - we know that the level of liquidity that cats have is about 99%, and these pictures are the newest collection of proof. 

If I fits, I sits - if you are considering getting a cat, learn this statement, for it will lead you through many moments. If you don't see your cat all of a sudden, don't fret right away. Check all the boxes, all the nooks and crannies in the house, don't put it past your liquid furball to hide inside of some bowl somewhere. You will find them in the strangest place. If there's the smallest chance of them fitting into something, they will try to sit in it, and odds are they will succeed.

First Ever Captive-Born Cheetah Brothers Successfully Released Into The Wild

An amazing world-first achievement: Saba and Nairo, two captive-born cheetahs from the UK have been released into the wild in Africa. 

The two brothers, as IFLSCIENCE reports, were born at Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve in Kent, England, on July 15, 2017. Very quickly though, Saba "showed signs of illness and it was discovered that his liver wasn't functioning properly." To keep him alive, he had to be removed from the litter and hand-raised by Damian and Victoria Aspinall of The Aspinall Foundation. Under their watchful care, he made a full recovery. Of course, because of the way he grew up, he inevitably grew used to playing with humans and being fed, qualities which he would have to overcome if he were one day released into the wild.

"Saba rejoined his brother Nairo in December 2018 and despite their time apart the pair immediately formed a bond." And today, after honing their cheetah instincts for 12 months, the two of them have been released into the wild in Africa.

Read more about the story and check out pics of the adorable brothers below.

Get ready for a video with nothing but wholesomeness. A cat found a stray kitten and brought him home with it, taking the kitten under its wing and showing him around the house, sharing food with him, and being the coolest and most adorable cat mentor of all time. 

It was love at first sight, the two of them seem to have simply known that they belong together. Now, the kitten is the cutest lap cat and is living happily ever after in a forever home full of other cats, and we couldn't have been happier. A cat adopting a kitten, what more can one ask for?

Imgur user RareWolf3 shared their story of doing just that - raising seven wolfhound cross puppies who were dumped in a bush, emaciated and scared.

All seven of the puppies have since been adopted and taken into loving forever homes, one of them even being adopted by RareWolf3 themselves. looking back on their pictures when they were babies brings us so much joy, and knowing that they're living good lives now is even better, and we are indeed really thankful.

Puppy Scared Of Being Returned To Shelter Again Finds Forever Home (Viral Thread)

When going to shelters and listening to the stories of the animals in there, it's always hard hearing about the ones that have been picked up once then taken back. We understand how much hope followed by devastation these animals feel, and our animal-loving hearts want nothing more than to give these animals the forever home they deserve.

So, when we hear a story about an animal that has been returned to the shelter already finally finding its forever home, for us (and for the animal), the joy is doubled. Thank you to FactWino for sharing the story of his beautiful rescue puppy, and thank you to the internet for making it go viral and bringing it to our attention. We wish them the most amazing, long life together.
