Some of the teeniest tiniest animals out there will surprise you by just how fierce they can be. For example, did you know that the smallest wild cat in America is the cat with the higher kill success rate? Yeah, tiny doesn't mean not lethal. 

We bet you didn't think that chipmunks belonged to this group of animals, but oh, these itty bitty chipmunks are about to prove you wrong. They have taken it upon themselves to have a battle with un unspeakably terrifying enemy - a strawberry pot. Yeah, we're not kidding. They laid siege to those strawberries and battled them to the very end. Thankfully, the chipmunks won, but the strawberries definitely put up a fight. It was almost as intense of a fight as the one between the ferocious baby jaguar against its momma's ear

Have you ever heard of a rat that is also an acrobat? Neither had we! Until today when we stumbled upon this silly news story courtesy of BBC News. "A rat with rather impressive acrobatic skills has been filmed scaling a washing line to get to some bird feeders. Melissa Paterson, 26, spotted the tightrope-walking rodent in her Norfolk garden early one July morning."

"She said it had been in and out of her garden for a while working out how to reach the feeders. They were moved to the clothes line after it successfully scaled a bird feeder pole. 'I've never seen one scale a washing line like it's walking a tightrope,' Ms Paterson said." We are seriously impressed with this agile rat's efforts to secure some extra sustenance.

Brave Mom Cat Runs Into Burning Barn To Save Her Kittens

For mothers, living in the animal kingdom is an extra difficult task. Having to look for food, fend for themselves as they hunt, find shelter, all while keeping their babies safe. The motherly instinct is strong. It's no wonder, then, that animal momma are loving yet stern. They have to do what needs to be done to protect their babies, even if it means saving them from danger at risk to themselves. 

That is what one momma cat had to do - running into a burning barn to save her kittens. According to Cole & Marmalade, the barn was this cat's home. She and her babies had been living on that farm for a while, and sadly, when the structure caught fire, her babies were still inside.

Thread: Trusting Stray Cat Mom Brings Kittens To Her Chosen Human

It's not an easy feat to grain a cat's trust. Many times, cats are aloof for a while before finally choosing their human. They're defensive by nature, and they're even more defensive when they have babies. To have cat moms trust their humans with their babies is an even bigger accomplishment. It's just that sometimes, even while they're still scared, cat mommas have no choice but to look for help with the human predators that scare them.

Such is the case with the cat mom that brunion has been feeding for a while. Maybe becoming a domesticated cat wouldn't have been her first choice, but in an attempt to help her babies, she went to the food-providing human anyway. It's safe to say that, now that these kitties are living in brunion's house, brunion is not the one who fostered them, the cat is the one who fostered this human.

25 Frogalicious Ribbit Worthy Memes

Did you know that frog content has seen huge surges recently on platforms like Reddit and Tumblr? Frogs have a long history on the interwebs! From classic memes like Kermit, and Pepe the Frog, we've seen relentless cycles of humorous frog content. Froggos are weird little critters. They vary greatly in size depending on species.

We can all agree that frogs have a special place within meme culture, what we agree on less is why.  Their interesting bodily compositions and googly appearing eyes make them perfect candidates for some good old fashioned meme-y humor.  Ultimately though, the infatuation doesn't have to be that deep, maybe we just think frogs are cool and that's that. Either way, let's enjoy some good old fashioned froggo humor.

Twitter Thread: Rescuing And Returning A Baby Chick To Its Family

The animal kingdom, as much as we love it, can be a pretty brutal place. Many times, for various reasons, helpless animals find themselves alone and unable to fend for themselves. Like, when 5 cheetah cubs tragically lost their mom and had to be rescued or when a bobcat was dropped on its head by a hawk as a kitten and now lives in a sanctuary because it doesn't understand it's a predator. Even the fiercest animal won't survive on its own like that.

And if it's a tiny helpless baby chick like in this twitter thread, its chances are closes to none. Thankfully, this chick found itself in the hands of a wonderful human who decided to rescue it. Because all animals, especially newborn ones, deserve to be saved. Whether it's a tiny squeaky fox cub stuck in a river, a sick 'ugly fish who was abused by its previous owners, or this itty bitty baby chick who's momma... is not the most responsible momma. 

twitter thread about rescuing a baby chick | thumbnail includes a picture of a tiny baby chick and one tweet 'Carnivore - Karma Renee @iAmMissKarma I found a baby chick on my porch.. he's all alone and chirping like crazy. We have hella chickens over here so seeing them is normal but the chicks are never alone or too far from their mom. I don't know what to do'

Moments when wildlife encounter civilization are always awwdorable yet mildly scary at the same time. We, as animal lovers, want nothing more than to go out there and pet these beautiful creatures. But, we know we should be respectful and not interfere, not matter how cute they might be. Amazingly, if you do that for long enough, you might even make friends with a wild animal.

Patrick Conley on YouTube knows what that feels like. They have had a beautiful bear visiting them for years - you can see the whole journey on that channel. And one day, she decided to being her itty bitty awwdorable bear cubs to visit her lifelong human friends. You can feel the excitement, not just from the humans but from the cubs as well. And we're as excited as they are.

Today we found a wholesome video highlighting an even more wholesome interspecies friendship between a rabbit and a doggo. About a month ago, this rabbit came across his doggo bestie, Songi, while Songi was on a walk in a hiking trail with his mama. Ever since then, the rabbit waits for Songi to head out on his morning walks in the trails and greets him with so much love!

It took Songi some time to warm up to his new rabbit friend, but this rabbit was persistent! They became very close, very fast. We love watching their awwdorable friendship grow and blossom in this sweet video. Songi and this rabbit have a very special friendship, the rabbit will not go close to any other doggos! It seems they each have a place in the other's heart.

Heartwarming Stories Of Cats Adopting Humans

Every single one of us, cat owners, has a story to tell about how we chose and adopted our fur babies. Some of us rescued our cats from terrible lives on the street, others went into a shelter to pick up a kitten then ended up changing our minds and adopting a senior pet. and some of us... well, some of us didn't choose at all and were instead picked by the cats. 

Last week, our purrfect ICanHasCheezburger users shared some of their stories with us - stories of cats adopting them, and they were so cute and wholesome, we simply had to share them with all of you guys as well. Thank you to everyone who shared, and we hope that your cats have the absolute best lives living with their humans of choice

Facebook comments about cats adopting humans | thumbnail includes one Facebook comment 'Font - Patrick Califia One of my roommates acquired a cat on Thanksgiving. She and both of her pit bulls were in a food coma. The cat, who was feral, walked in (stepping on the dogs), climbed up on the table and ate a bunch of Turkey, then sashayed into the living room and fell asleep snuggled up to her.
