Disabled Goldfish That Can't Swim Is Saved With Hand-Made Life Jacket

The last creature you would ever think would need a life jacket is a fish, but for this fish, a life jacket is exactly what it needed to keep it from swimming upside down. 

According to Daily Mail, this poor fish "found himself living upside at the bottom of his tank after a bout of swim bladder - a disorder which affects buoyancy - was found to be untreatable."

Tweets About Strange Loveable Cat Behaviors

If you're a cat owner, then there is no doubt in our mind that you have seen your cat doing some weeeeird things. Of course, that doesn't make you love them any less than before, if anything, their strangeness is what makes them special. You don't question it. All you do is snap a picture and enjoy it while it lasts. Oh, and tweet about how weird your cat is of course. 

Just remember, although your cat's behavior is strange, that cat is your strange cat, and if it likes licking walls sometimes... rather than trying to teach it to stop doing it, just make sure your walls are clean for its enjoyment. Don't forget to come tell us about your weirdos in our Facebook community as well!

Redditors Share Wholesome Stories Of Aloof Cats Finally Choosing Them

Earning a cat's affection is normally not easy. They are naturally suspicious creatures, especially those of them who may not have come from the best of circumstances, so for them to show their humans trust and love is not an easy task. Some cats will take a few days to get used to their new environment and people and will grow to trust you quickly. Others might take years. 

A post on Reddit went viral of someone sharing the absolute unparalleled joy they felt when their cat finally chose to rest on them for the first time in 10 whole years. Goodness, was the wait for it. Other users chimed in, sharing their own stories of their cats finally, finally, choosing them, and we found each one of them incredibly heartwarming.

Heartwarming 37-Year Friendship Between A Man And The Swan He Rescued

An incredible friendship between a man from Turkey and the swan he rescued has lasted for decades. 37 years ago, a now retired postman, Recep Mirzan, found a female swan who he later named Garip in Turkey's western Edirne province, and they have been friends ever since. 

As NEWS CHANNEL 3 reports, "Mirzan and a group of friends were taking a shortcut in their car when they noticed the swan, with a broken wing, in an empty field. Mirzan immediately took the swan in to protect her from predators and kept her in the car until that afternoon, when he was able to take the swan to his home." Ever since then, Garip has been living on Mirzan's farm in the Karaagac region near Greece. Whenever Garip is out of her pen, she accompanies Mirzan during his chores and evening walks. 

Read more about their heartwarming story and check out their even more heartwarming pictures below.

Dog That Spent Year And A Half Chained Up Gets Rescued (Viral Thread)

Bring the tissues, everyone, because this one is a tearjerker. Meet Baldr. This poor pup has spent the first year and a half of his life chained up before he got rescued. He never even had a name, and it has left him afraid of trusting people. Thankfully though, his life changed when imgur user, poorschmuck, opened up their hearts and took him in. 

Baldr is now the happiest he's ever been. He's found his forever home, and he knows it. In this home, he will get nothing but love, and as poorschmuck said: he's "[n]ever going to see a chain again." And nothing could make us happier.
