So... we all know that cats are the biggest hooligans in the whole dang world. They will do whatever they want whenever they want, and they sure as heck will not be asking for permission. Cats are just jerks like that, it's in their nature, and once they have a target, they will get what they want. 

This cat has clearly chosen its humans, and nothing will stop him until they let him into their home, not even a door locked with a code. At all times of the day, this cat will attempt to enter the correct lock code, setting the alarms off and scaring the heck out of the residents. Of course, with the husband constantly letting him in, snuggling with him, feeding him, and generally being adorable with him, we will not be surprised whatsoever if the little hooligan gets adopted lol.

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.

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.

We, as cat owners, believe that every single cat owner out there has wondered what in the heck do cats do in the middle of the night. We know they're not sleeping. We wake up to the mayhem in the morning that is the shenanigans they were up to at night. Something must be happening, but we have no idea of knowing what it is. 

As imagined by the cats of the truest of all cat lovers, @sleepyskele, ICanHasCheezburger presents an original animation all about the wonders of cat night-time shenanigans. After seeing this, you will have a much better idea of why the heck you woke up to random socks strewn about your house.

Cats are the most adorable weirdos in the whole wide world, and goodness help us, but we love them so much for it. The weirder the habit a cat has, the more we fall in love with it, and yes, you're about to fall in love with this cat for sure. 

We didn't think we could see many cats topping the "terrifying" ninja cat who is obsessed with tiny almondsor the awwdorable senior cat who cries whenever his sweater is taken off, but the cat in this video might just give them both a run for their money, because this cat's favorite habit is... rolling down the stairs. Yes. It loves doing it so much that its owners have given some of its very specific stair rolls names. It's adorable, it's weird, it's everything that we love in cats.

Cats are the kings and queens of shenanigans. From swatting things away randomly to accidentally running into walls, cats being silly is one of our favorite things in the world. And sometimes, they also bring out the silliness in us, making us want to mess around, be silly, and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. 

Preformed by our talented cat mom, Tracy Thorne, this bumble bee cat song captures that free spiritedness in the most wholesome way. As always, Tracy and her cat dazzle us with their good vibes and cuteness. This song is up there with our favorites. If you want to hear more of this duo, check out Tracy's song about what cat bites actually mean and her official kitten shenanigans song

Listen, you're not even prepared for this explosion of cuteness and adorableness and- omg we're sO in love with this itty bitty fox cub. We love all foxes, don't get us wrong, all foxes are beautiful and majestic, but this tiny adorable white fox cub specifically is something else. 

She is one of the most adorable thieves, and she has stolen... some raspberries. Yeah, we know, we know, cutest thing in the world. She's the newest fox cub at SaveAFox rescue, and although she has only just started getting used to the other foxes and the location, clearly, she is more than comfortable enough to commit some crimes. No kidding, we're in love.

We all love our birthdays, right? Getting gifts is amazing, having people who you haven't heard of for a while contact you to say happy birthday, having an excuse to get all of your friends together on the same day. It's great. Some people think that it's silly to celebrate your pets' birthdays, but we disagree. It's extremely important, and it's even more important to celebrate the birthdays of senior pets

We even think that we should get your pet some gifts. Honestly, we thought that the gifts we got our pets we pretty damn cool - favorite snacks, more toys, extra long walks, but... this person has outdone us all. They got their bestest doggo a whole puppy for his birthday, and it's too adorable for this world.

When it comes to cats, sometimes, the most random things can happen. From finding your cats sitting in a diner randomly to your cat deciding to sit in on your zoom call out of nowhere, to situations that are a bit more difficult than those, such as coming home and finding discovering that a cat has given birth under your bed. Not your cat either. Just some random cat. 

Inspired by true stories of cats giving birth in unexpected places, check out the newest animation by our resident cat person, @sleepyskele, about a guy adopting the litter a random cat gave birth to under his bed.

All animals can get injured, but for the most part, when we think of rescues, we think of cats and dogs. That's why some animal rescues completely take us by surprise with how heart-wrenchingly amazing they are. We've come across stories amazing stories such as: an 'ugly' fish being rescued from abusive owners, a rescued bobcat kitten whose favorite toy is fennel, an injured fox being rescued using using a box of cat treats

And the latest one we are presenting to you here is the story of a bald eagle who was injured in the wild and had its elbow dislocated. Never did we think we'd feel such heartbreak over an injured bald eagle, but we do, and we are so so so thankful to the amazing people who are helping it until it can be released back into the wild on its own.

You may not have thought about it many times in the past, but otters are heckin' adorable. Yeah, we know, it's not the first animal that people tend to think of when you ask them what the cutest animal is, but it's true. Otters are awwdorable, and baby otters are somehow even cuter.

Unconvinced? This video of baby otters taking their first steps is about to change your mind. They're so wiggly and so tiny. If you looked at them from afar, you might legitimately confuse them with kittens, they're so similar. 

And if this video doesn't change your mind completely, allow us to offer more proof. Take a look at this otter who became best friends with a cat or at this most adorable de-chonking otter who's too excited about his salmon cheat day. That's it. Mind changed.

Get the tissues ready, everyone, because this video is about to get them tears out of you. When these kind humans came across a tiny, abandoned, freezing and shaking kitten in the forest, they couldn't not leave it there. They could do nothing but save the tiny squeaking kitten. You can literally see the poor thing shaking when they pick it up. 

Every animal rescue story is heartwarming and at the same time difficult to watch, but especially when it's baby abandoned animals. Whether it's a fox cub getting rescued from a river or even a fish rescued from its abusive owners. We're so, so thankful for each person who takes the time to help these poor animals. You're doing the most important work.

If you've ever thought to yourself: oh my god, my cat is such a jerk, and for some reason, it's only ever a jerk to me, we have a reality check for you. You're only half right, cats are jerks to everyone, and it's hilarious. Cats mess with people all the time, but cats mess with dogs and other animals, and this time, they're messing with each other. 

Stories of animals being jerks is one of the funniest things to us, no matter what animal it is. Whether it's cats being their annoying little hellion selves, whether it's parrots being jerks with no sense of self preservation, or even if its a jerk peacock running around and purposefully scaring everyone. It's always hilarious, and this video is yet another layer of animal jerk hilarity.

We all have that one weird friend, right? And we're totally in love with them. We know that some friendships are more unlikely than others. And yet, despite knowing that, when we heard that this cat's best friend is a teeny-tiny almond, we were still surprised. And totally smitten. 

Ari, the "very scary" black cat is actually a wholesome little drama queen that we all can't help but fall in love with. She does the scary crab pose a lot, she's a ninja cat who has the amazing ability of climbing walls, and the fact that awwdorable black cats have such a bad reputation doesn't help with her image. But she's a whole sweetheart, she's obsessed with little almonds, and you know what? We are totally obsessed with her back, specifically because of how much of a weirdo she is.

Normally, when we come back home and catch our dogs doing something that they definitely shouldn't be, our dogs have a tendency to become the biggest drama queens and pretend that they didn't do anything. They act guilty, they give us their best puppy eyes, they try to calm us down so that we're not mad. 

But some dogs are too wholesome for this world, and even when we catch them doing something Very Bad, they don't understand are are just happy to see us back home. Such is the story with Phil. Phil has made a huge mess while his momma was not home, but there was nothing he could do to contain his pawdorable excitement when she came back, and while his momma was mad, we were absolutely smitten.
