Earresistible: Cats With Big Ears

Along with their soft bellies, poke-able noses, and squishy cheeks, ears are probably one of the top cat components. They perk up at any tiny noise, they're fluffy and kissable, and they – impressively – can individually turn in basically every direction. And we definitely know that cats can hear all the ghosts around us with these ears, that's clearly why they seem to hear things that we don't. We love cats' ears, so the more ear a cat has, the better, right?

These pictures of cats with extraordinarily cute big ears will hopefully allow you to live the big eared cat dream vicariously through the screen. Because even though we unfortunately can't touch these ears and rub right behind them until these kitty cats purr their heart out, we can 100% still aww at them.

Cat Medley: Cuteness, Appreciation, Mourning And Loss

Cats, cats, and cats. Nothing but cats and that's how we like it! Each week, we love to collect the best cat pics and stories online and present them here. 

Each cat picture, or video, tells a different story and has a different set of emotions behind it. That's what makes this gathering a medley of a variety of things, number one being adorableness (which, granted, all cats naturally have), the second is the much-needed balance of humor, and the last being anything that tugs on the heartstrings (good or bad).

In this case, we have both. We have heartwarming stories of glow-ups and transformations. Yet, we also have heartbreaking moments of mourning and loss. We wanted to take a moment and send love to those who had recently had a pet cross the rainbow bridge. Your pet may be gone physically, but never emotionally, and never, ever forgotten.

Cats With Babies: Wholesome Collection Of Cats Being Friends With Small Humans (24 Pictures)

There's always some concern when it comes to leaving your baby with a cat. It's a fair thing to worry about since we know, as cat owners, that no matter how much our cat loves us, accidents happen, and sometimes we get scratched. Despite that, you might have noticed that cats have a tendency to want to be around a baby - smell it, sleep snuggled up next to it, lick its head. It might be because a lot of times babies smell like milk. It might be because cats are just curious creatures and babies are new and interesting additions to their homes. 

There's no obvious explanation for the care cats show to babies, but one thing that we do know is that it is omg so adorable. To show you just how sweet cats and babies can be together, we have gathered 24 pictures of just that to warm your heart and make your stomach flutter throughout the day. 

If you're in the mood for some more animal baby adorableness, here are some pets showing love to their pregnant hoomans.

Kitten With Broken Jaw Saved Thanks To A Creative Use Of Buttons

Three weeks ago, an adorable 5-week-old kitten was brought into Albuquerque Animal Welfare for emergency surgery with her face and jaw crushed. The kitten - Mittens - had to go through multiple surgeries, but unfortunately, in the beginning, they weren't enough. Since multiple surgeries were too expensive for the shelter to cover, the veterinarians that were treating Mittens offered to do the rest of the treatment for free and, in the process, came up with a new, innovative way to help Mittens, using... buttons.

Tiger Cub Smuggled Three Years Ago Is Now Living Happily In Its Forever Home

A terrifying story with a happy ending. Three years ago, a six week old Bengal tiger cub was rescued from a wildlife trafficking attempt at a San Diego area border crossing. Today, the fully grown tiger, Moka, is living happily with another rescued tiger named Nola.

Moka was discovered in the floorboard of a sports car driven by an 18-year-old man who was attempting to smuggle the tiger from Tijuana through the U.S.-Mexico border. As reported by the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy and Border Report, the passenger under whose legs the cub was hidden had at first said that it was "just a cat." The driver, Luis Valencia, when questioned, claimed that he had bought the tiger in Tijuana after seeing someone walking it on a leash and wanted to keep it as a pet. Later, of course, it was discovered that both statements were false, and Luis was sentenced to six months in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy charges.

The cub was taken to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and had a surgery that saved his life. At the time, his weight was less than that of the average house cat - just 6 pounds. His name, Moka, means "chance" in Bengali and was given to him as a way of commemorating the story of his discovery. There, he got to meet Rakan, "a Sumartan tiger cub whose mother was unable to care for him," and together they grew up, played, wrestled, and pounced, becoming stronger and happier.

After a few months of care, still only a few months old, Moka was moved into an animal sanctuary called Lions, Tigers & Bears east of San Diego where he met Nola from Louisiana - another now fully grown tiger who was rescued as a cub.

The founder and director of Lions, Tigers & bears, Bobbi Brink, told Border Report that "[Moka and Nola] were both the same age, so they made great roommates, now they're best of friends," as well as that "[h]e's kind of shy but Nola is his strength. She'll be the first one to go out and check out something then slowly but surely he'll be right behind her," and no ending could make us happier.

Take a look at pictures of Moka from three years ago, over the first three months at the safari (with Rakan!) and today below.
