Cat Medley: Cuteness, Appreciation, Mourning And Loss

Cats, cats, and cats. Nothing but cats and that's how we like it! Each week, we love to collect the best cat pics and stories online and present them here. 

Each cat picture, or video, tells a different story and has a different set of emotions behind it. That's what makes this gathering a medley of a variety of things, number one being adorableness (which, granted, all cats naturally have), the second is the much-needed balance of humor, and the last being anything that tugs on the heartstrings (good or bad).

In this case, we have both. We have heartwarming stories of glow-ups and transformations. Yet, we also have heartbreaking moments of mourning and loss. We wanted to take a moment and send love to those who had recently had a pet cross the rainbow bridge. Your pet may be gone physically, but never emotionally, and never, ever forgotten.

Artist Sums Up How Life Changes After Getting A Pet

Chinese artist, Mai Mai, has perfectly summed up what life is like after you get a pet and the little day-to-day things that will change because of it/

Photos of landscapes and selfies will be replaced with nothing but your pets. Maybe a few selfies with said pets. Have clean clothes? Not anymore. Pet hair gets everywhere, and it gets everywhere fast. Extra money? Will go to taking care of your pet because they come first. 

It may sound unpleasant but it's honestly the best. And all pet owners can attest to that. There is nothing compared to having a best friend by side, always loving you. Truly, it's unmeasurable. 

Thank you, Mai Mai, for opening up our eyes and showing up the beauty of what having pets in our lives accomplishes.

Lost Species Rediscovered After 50 Years: The Elephant Shrew

Wow! The elephant shrew was considered a lost species up until recently! It hasn't been seen in 50 years, last scientific recording being back in the 1970s.

A country in the Horn of Africa, Djibouti, the creature was found during a scientific expedition. Found alive and well, we should add. 

The elephant shrew is so tiny, it can fit in the palm of your hand.  They are neither elephants nor shrews but do have a distinctive trunk-like nose. The elephant shrew actually is related to aardvarks, elephants, and manatees, believe it or not. 

Steven Heritage, a research scientist at the Duke University Lemur Center in Durham, and a member of the expedition that re-discovered the elephant shrew said he was thrilled to put the once lost species back on the radar! 

Heritage told BBC, "We were really excited and elated when we opened the first trap that had an elephant shrew in it, a Somali sengi. We did not know which species occurred in Djibouti and when we saw the diagnostic feature of a little tufted tail, we looked at each other and we knew that it was something special."

It's weird to think there are creatures and animals on this Earth that we may have never seen before. But honestly, it's sso very likely that you don't know all the living on this mysterious planet. There's no way to really know because some creatures (such as in the deep blue ocean) have YET to be discovered! 

So, the idea of there being living things we haven't seen before isn't so far fetched. Yet, it's always surprising when you see a land animal for the first time. We've never heard of a humphead parrotfish or a worm-eating giant snail before. Amazing how much there is to learn and to see, it's never-ending.
