You know how, sometimes, there are moments when your cat does something so incredibly smart, it shocks you? Well, this isn't one of them. In this video, where a whole bunch of cats attempt to get a treat hidden deep inside of a see-through cup, we get to see the best of cat ridiculousness

Faces stuck inside the cup, moments of blank confusion - this is why all of us are obsessed with cats. And yes, we're definitely going to be trying this challenge out on our cats as well. After seeing this, it's a must.

If you ever find yourself in a situation in which you may be about to get into a fight (we sincerely hope not), we just hope you have a good enough friend behind you that can take you out from the heat of the moment. That's exactly what happened to this kitty who came face-to-face with another cat, you know how cats are... always getting into alterCATions! They just can't really seem to help it. 

Luckily for this cat, they had a kind-hearted gold retriever buddy who saw the fight that was about to happen simply wasn't worth it. So what did they doggo do? The dog just picked up the cat and walked away. That's true friendship to us.

Here's a strange encounter we never knew we needed until this very moment.. a red panda coming face-to-face with a raccoon, and then the red panda continues to wander freely around the zoo. 

Disney, are you watching this? This is the type of story the world wants to see. Or maybe not, given the trauma after 'The Fox And The Hound.'

We've definitely made the connection before that a red panda resembles a raccoon more than a panda itself, so to see the two come face-to-face with one another is probably the cutest thing we've seen in a while, no matter how short it is.

Well, unfortunately, quarantine is not just for humans, and these two kittens have been in it for the past two weeks. They've been living right next to each other, seeing and learning one another from afar, but today, the barrier between them FINALLY gets knocked down, and they get to meet. 

Their meeting goes purrfectly, of course. The itty bitty kittens walk around each other's spaces, steal each other's food, sniff each other from head to toe, and wrestle each other to the ground. We think it's love. Though the two have never gotten to play with another kitten before, they definitely seem to know what they're doing, and they look so happy together

How is it February already? And how is it that Valentine's Day is around the corner? We feel like we're still back in March of 2020 and completely unprepared for the celebration of love this year. Yet, time stops for no one and we are here, with Valentine's Day right around the corner. 

At least we have a new Simon's cat special to commemorate the occasion! The new special is called, "Perfect Pitch," and Simon's Cat tries his absolute best to serenade the lovely Chloe, in honor of the day of love. 

All we can say is that, when Simon's cat said "Meow meow meeeeowwww," we really felt that.

It's the little things in life that make it so beautiful, like a baby elephant taking a moment to roll around and play in the sand. 

Meet Pyi Mai, a recently rescued baby elephant who can be seen here enjoying her first-time sand bath! In the video, you'll see Pyi Mai wholesomely rolling about as her mother watches over her. These beautiful elephants were rescued and currently reside at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai province, Northern Thailand. 

Wishing this beautiful mother and her adorable baby elephant a wonderful life full of happiness!

Abandoned by his momma, this tiny kitten was sick and alone. Thankfully, a couple of amazing, well-intentioned people found him and gave him a second chance. The cutie beat all the odds, defeating its sickness and every fear that accompanied it, growing up, getting stronger, meeting new friends and making himself a home with this new family. 

Now, he's the happiest, most awwdorable chonker beauty in the world, and he's living with a loving family in the warmest forever home. Prepare the tissues and get ready for happy tears, everyone, because this is one to remember.

When you think about rescuing an animal, you probably think of a cat or a dog, maybe a bird or something, but almost definitely not a beaver. And yet, this rescued beaver is one of the most adorable strange adopted animals that we have ever seen. 

He loves cuddling, he loves kayaking, he enjoys stealing his mom's rug 4 times a night, and he may or may not have tried to build a dam on top of his mom's head. Also, we want him. He's too cute for this world. And honestly, we think this adorable beaver is ready to go out on his own and conquer the world in the wild, he's just... trying to figure out how to take the couch with him.

OK, these owls are obviously telling this man he's been accepted to Hogwarts but no one else seems to realize it. When it comes to owls, the Eurasian eagle-owl is known as Europe's largest owl! 

Vroege Vogels, a Dutch radio and television show about nature was surprised to hear that these large owls have made a home for themselves in one man's apartment window! A Eurasian eagle and her three giant owl chicks! And whenever the man watches television, the owls all watch with them! 

Ah, to be a Dutchman living in an art studio apartment with a family of Eurasian eagle-owls nesting in the planter outside the window. Isn't that the dream? But alas, the city is no place for these majestic owls, the owls were relocated to a near shelter soon after this video was released and have now been released into the wild where they belong. Still, it's a lovely and unusual story that makes us smile.

Oh lawd, she comin'!

This video may only be 11 seconds love but it certainly checks off a lot of what we're looking for in videos! Number 1, cuteness, check. Number 2, family interaction, check. Number 3, an element of surprise, check. 

If you can't figure out what the element of surprise was, it was the absolute unit of a seal that came running... err, body-hopping? The absolute unit that came body-hopping to the baby harp seal. Overall, this video is a delicious treat and we loved every second of it. Be sure to turn those sounds on to hear what a baby harp seal sounds like!

Just when you think the world is missing a little kindness, you come across something that is so kind and so pure, and your faith is restored yet again. When one day, this man came across a parakeet egg inside of a cage in a pet store and found out that its mother had been sold, he did what many of us wish we had the strength to do - he took the egg home, cared for it, and helped this tiny parakeet hatch. 

So much care, time, and love has to be put into such an act of kindness. We are not only touched and thankful for this video and this person, we also find ourselves inspired to do something kind of others ourselves.

This is so precious and quite the perfect snow day! Mei Xiang and Tian Tian, two giant pandas at the Smithsonian's national zoo took advantage of this wintery weather and went out to play in the snow! And from what we're seeing, looks like they had a lot of fun. Why go sledding down a snow-covered hill when you can simply slide down it on your back? 

These pandas seem to be really living in this moment and we can't help but smile at their playful interaction. We hope this video provides you with some smiles as well! Have a great day!

A big ball of fluff meeting its baby ball of fluff, and the love is instant and strong in this video. Prepare for an overload of feels. 

A cat meeting his son for the first time, and no, there's no need to worry. Whatever worries you might have about a meeting like this were thrown out the window right away the moment these two looked at each other. The recognition was instantaneous, and the love came not a moment later. Not a hint of hostility, not a hint of fear, only wholesome love, sniffing, snuggles, patience, and so many head butts your heart will be fluttering with joy in no time. 

We have a feeling this is going to be one happy family

It started with a woman taking this adorable obese doggo into her home, wanting to give her a chance and take care of her, help her lose weight and get healthier. And after a year and a half as well as one of the most successful pet weight loss journeys we've ever seen, the story ended with the same amazing woman being won over and adopting the pup.

Never have you seen a dog happier to do the most basic dog things - since because of her weight, she couldn't even scratch her own ear before. She's now the happiest doggo, and we can't help but be happy watching her jump around in the new forever home

Gah! This video just gave us a toothache, that's how sweet it is! We love a strong animal connection and what could be stronger than the bond between mother and child

This beautiful, and sleepy mama, was trying to rest as her kittens laid beside her. Until, one little kitten, the mini-version of the mother itself decided to snuggle up even closer. Then after the kitten found a good spot, the grooming session had to begin and now this kitten is wide awake and looking to bother mom! Sounds like a true kid to us!

Dogs are the best. They are simple the best. They come when you call them, they always have the best intentions (even when they're hooligan weirdos), and they want nothing more than to please you. So, what happens when they're already next to you and suddenly you're calling their name? 

This adorable pooch clearly wasn't ready for such an incredibly confusing test and absolutely couldn't understand why his owner apparently couldn't see him. He's confused, of course, but for us it's heartwarmingly entertaining. And when he gets all the scritches that he deserves at the end for being the bestest boy in the world, our hearts just about melt with joy.
