    Font - Joe Adriance One time, we had a husky puppy over at my house that was about 9 weeks old. I have a pit bull and he was 2 years old at the time, my dog has elevated food dishes because it's easier for him to eat out of. The husky puppy tried with all her might to get to the food but wasn't able, so what does my dog do? He takes a mouthful of food and drops it on the floor and nudges it at the puppy. I could have died a complete man that day. Most adorable thing I've ever seen lol

    Okay guys, there is nothing cuter, more adorable, more heartwarming, more purely wholesome, then a doggo sharing his food with a puppy who's struggling. Animal friendships are pure wholesome goodness and we love a heartwarming doggo friend story.

    Font - Jennifer Black I worked in a vet clinic. A new client, a retired man, brought in his cat because she seemed to not be feeling well. He explained that she was his first cat, so he was unsure about "normal" health versus illness. When I asked how he had gotten her, he said he used to have a little dog, and after it died of old age he couldn't bear the thought of replacing him. As time went on, he thought about getting a cat for company. So one day he walked into the local animal shelter and

    We say this all the time, but it doesn't matter what an animal looks like or how old it is, it's its capacity for love and affection that makes an animal an animal. We hope this sweet grandpa and cat duo spend many happy lovely days together.

    Cat - Lori Ann Curley One Wisconsin winter evening, my husband Brian turned on an electric space heater at his feet under his desk. After a few minutes, he noticed his feet were not warming up. He looked under the desk and saw Lunch (yes, as in breakfast, lunch, and dinner; she's now at the Rainbow Bridge) laying in front of the heater. The look on her face said, "Thank you for the warm, Daddy." Brian tucked his feet under Lunch, who purred.

    Organism - Lucy Angel Eames I had a special needs rat who had hydrocephalus (Little Chase). After a ton of research & vet visits it was estimated that he wouldnt see past 6 months of age. I gave my heart & soul to the little guy, doing everything I could to help him (medications, vet visits, special food, help bathing him) and he lived to almost 2 yrs of age. He went from walking in circles & falling over to running about like a tiny maniac, he tried hard to hold his food but could never quite g

    Font - Tiffany Butrum My family used to have five Jack Russell Terriers. Nuala, my sister's dog, and her four kids, Bilbo, Gadget, Zamies, and Big Girl. My dog Bilbo wasn't very fond of his mom, Nuala. They never interacted very much. When Nuala was 15 (and the kids were 12) she had a bad stroke. She went blind and for a week or two she could only walk in circles to the right. My baby boy Bilbo, who really was the most compassionate dog I've ever known, became her carer. He walked with her most

    Font - Patricia Heidman I adopted a feral kitten from a farm (Pooshie) and took her straight to the Vet. On examination they found that she was severely infested with fleas. They said that they normally don't flea bath a kitten so young but that she might die without it, she was so sick. When they brought her to me in a towel, she opened her arms out to me and cried loudly until I held her in my arms. I think she already thought of me as her Mommy. We cuddled all the way home. She lived 18 preci

    Font - KC N Leigh Fahel My husband & I used to rescue cats with a friend. One day the friend called; she had rescued 3 kittens & wanted us to see them so we could help place them. We helped name them: Cassie, Moose, and Tina. She kept them in her bathroom so HER cats wouldn't bother them. I went in to see them every time we went over; Tina would romp & play & climb onto my lap. One day the friend called me: "You HAVE to take Tina." I asked why, and she said, "Tina won't eat; she won't play; she

    Font - John Nettle When we first moved to our neighborhood we were walking the 2 small dogs around the block when we met a medium sized bald dog that was very friendly. I will pet any dog that comes to me even if they don't look great, so I did. The dog continued to follow us until we went home. My wife took a dog bone out to it and told it to go home and we thought it was over. Next thing we know the dog got into our fenced yard, came through our dog doors and laid down near the dog water bowl.

    Font - Shona Redmayne I had a 16 year old cat went missing while I was on holiday, distressing my pet sitter. I assumed the worst. On the day I returned, I drove into my road end (half a mile from my house), and she was waiting for me! How did she know I was coming home?? I was so relieved to see her.

    Font - Lara Dent Kazi (short for Kamikaze) was my cat in high school, and stayed with my parents after I left for college. She was always a very standoffish cat--you petted her when she wanted to be petted, or you got hissed at. One weekend, I had to come home after the sudden death of a friend. I was sitting waiting for a ride to their service and crying. She came up to me, and for fifteen minutes was the sweetest, cutest, most charming cat alive. She headbutted me, she purred, she stuck her he

    Dog - Laura Gandy My sister, a vet tech, fostered for her local shelter. One Saturday, she called me, begging us to come to the shelter to adopt a little dog. We hesitated- we had three, but she persisted. Never able to resist pleading from younger sis, we drove two hours to the shelter, and saw the dog. She was a ten year old chihuahua, abandoned by people who were moving, and could take an eighty pound rottie, but not a six pound chihuahua that was blind in one eye, had a heart murmur, and was
