'Spider Cat' Walks Up A Wall Effortlessly And Goes Viral

All cats love climbing, but this three-year-old British shorthair has full-on mastered it. After a video of her climbing a wall effortlessly went viral in China, she dubbed the 'spider-cat', and her purrfessional climbing skills took over everyone's hearts. 

The owner of Qiqi, Ms Luo, a high school teacher, told MailOnline that her cat has always loved climbing and enjoys spending her days leaping up and down from supposedly unreachable places. "Qiqi loves climbing the walls, the doors. Wherever is the highest, she would try to get up there," Ms Luo explained.

In the beginning, Ms Luo would watch Qiqi every single time she climbed, worried that she would fall and hurt herself, but Qiqi never disappointed, continuously impressing her owner, and now us, with her amazing climbing skills. Ms Luo had been capturing videos like that and sharing them on Douyin, one of them going incredibly viral. 

Millions of viewers on social media were impressed with the little spider kitty, and we are part of them now. For more spider cats being totally impressive weirdos, click right here.

Colorful And Oddly Adorable Peacock Spiders

Another Spooktober special! OK, we know what you're thinking, "Spiders? Heck no." And we get that, and we're also like that. However, when it comes to peacock spiders, there's something enchanting about them. Yes, if we were ever in the presence of one, we'd probably run. 

These are just photos and vids, they can't hurt us. Remember that. 

The peacock spider is probably the most beautiful spider out there, with its vivid colors, and disproportional huge eyes, you can't help but think, "OK, these guys can be cool." Much like peacocks, male peacock spiders are the most colorful of the sexes and have displayed their colors bolding when trying to attract a mate. 

As much as they make us squeamish, bugs can be quite cool looking!

Striking Microscopic Insect Photography By Pavan Kumar

Talented photographer, Pavan Kumar, is able to capture what one might consider impossible... the beauty of insects. For many people, insects just make us feel squeamish. It's a fair assumption to say many people just don't like bugs. At all. And truth be told, I am one of those people. 

Yet, Pavan Kumar has somehow taken these mesmerizing images with such striking colors, you can't help but stop and marble at the beauty that is obviously there. It's a beauty you can't see until you see it. 

We had the opportunity to ask Kavan the simple question, "Why bugs?" Out of everything in the world to photograph, why these tiny creatures most don't care about? Pavan Kumar responded saying, "Insects are the most ignored creatures, thanks to their size. We see colourful birds, elephants, tigers, and lions in wallpapers and HD image galleries, but none of the insects! They're amazing creatures too. They look beautiful too. Let's show the world what is seldom seen!"

Pavan Kumar has accomplished just that, showing the world what is seldomly seen. See more of Pavan Kumar's insanely beautiful photographs on his Instagram

Trees Cocooned in Spiders Webs Were Spotted After The Massive Floods In Pakistan

The floods that submerged one-fifth of Pakistan's territory took more than six months to recede.

One of the most affected regions was the Sindh region, located in the western corner of South Asia. 

At their peak, the floodwaters were up to 20 feet deep. About 20 million people were displaced.

But apparently, people were not the only ones seeking shelter from the devastating floods. 

One of the unexpected side-effects of the flooding has been that millions of spiders climbed up into the trees to escape the rising floodwaters, turning them into futuristic-looking trees cocooned in spiders' webs.

The people living in that area claimed they have never seen this phenomenon before but were glad to discover that those cocooned trees were actually significantly reducing the numbers of mosquitos and thereby, the risk of malaria. 

It is thought that the mosquitoes were getting caught in the spiders' webs which would be one blessing for the people of the area, facing so many other hardships after the floods. 

Check out some of the stunning photos, released by the department of international development.
