The Week's Most Supurrb Cat Tweets (July 23)

It's the weekend, ladies, gentleman and all other cat people. Thank goodness it's finally here. No, no, not because it means we get to chill and rest and do nothing, but because it being the weekend means that it's time for this week's cat twitter recap. 

Honestly, that's one of our favorite things about the weekend - going through the most ridiculous cat tweets, the funniest cat tweets, the most wholesome ones and most heartwarming ones. It gives us a little extra dose of pawsitivity to start the weekend with and truly makes sure that we start the week on the right paw. 

We hope you enjoy this collection of tweets, everyone, and may you have the most purrrrrfect weekend!

Twitter Thread: The Incredible Story Of Simon, The HMS Amethyst Ship Cat

When we think about history and war, rarely do we think about the animals. Deservedly, we talk about the soldiers and the fallen, the events that occurred, but sometimes, the animals have stories of their own. Simon, the HMS Amethyst ship cat, has lived one of the most amazing cat lives and has one of the most incredible stories. Thank you to @garius for putting this story together and sharing it with the world. We hope many more people read it and learn about Simon.

Simon is not the only ship cat out there either, there apparently have been many ship cats adorably sleeping in tiny hammocks throughout history. And other cats throughout history have been captured destroying all of our things. And though, no, none of their stories are quite as amazing as Simon's, we love them all. 

twitter thread about the HMS Amethyst ship cat | thumbnail includes a black and white picture of a cat and a tweet 'Cat - John Bull ... @garius Sod it. Have a Friday history thread. Let's talk about Simon. Ship's cat for HMS Amethyst. Survivor of the 1949 Yangtse Incident and the only cat ever to be awarded the Dickin Medal, the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross. 2:47 PM Jul 16, 2021 - Twitter Web App'

Twitter Thread: Rescuing And Returning A Baby Chick To Its Family

The animal kingdom, as much as we love it, can be a pretty brutal place. Many times, for various reasons, helpless animals find themselves alone and unable to fend for themselves. Like, when 5 cheetah cubs tragically lost their mom and had to be rescued or when a bobcat was dropped on its head by a hawk as a kitten and now lives in a sanctuary because it doesn't understand it's a predator. Even the fiercest animal won't survive on its own like that.

And if it's a tiny helpless baby chick like in this twitter thread, its chances are closes to none. Thankfully, this chick found itself in the hands of a wonderful human who decided to rescue it. Because all animals, especially newborn ones, deserve to be saved. Whether it's a tiny squeaky fox cub stuck in a river, a sick 'ugly fish who was abused by its previous owners, or this itty bitty baby chick who's momma... is not the most responsible momma.

We have hella chickens over here so seeing them is normal but the chicks are never alone or too far from their mom. I don't know what to do'

Twitter Thread: The Appalachians Are Older Than Most Things

Like this tumblr thread on the age of the Appalachians says, those mountains are older than bones. Not individual bones, but like the advent of bones. Alex Petrovnia gets into the geological wonder of a mountain range that spans continents and eras. It's weird how sometimes the most mundane things can be extremely interesting, like this thread on lobsters orthe electric story on the naming of Triscuits.

People Tweet Where Their High School Bullies Are Now In Life

Unfortunately, bullies and high school come hand in hand. Kids can be mean, but as we all know, those who bully others are only hiding their own pain inside. Although that doesn't make it easier at the time, what might help, years later, is knowing that your bully got some comeuppance in adulthood. For those who were lucky enough to sail through high school without being picked on, good for you! But for those of you who did get bullied, it might be worth finding out what adulthood has in store for them. Because these people are Tweeting what their bullies do now, and by the sound of things, karma has a way of making everything turn out just the way it should.

Twitter Thread: The Truth About Fossils In The Appalachian Mountains

When it comes to nature, there are so many things left undiscovered. Every other week, we hear about a new species being found, an old extinct animal coming back into the world. We read interesting stories about nature all the time, like when a 392 year old shark was discovered or when a study was done that showed that sometimes octopus punch fish for no reason other than spite. 

There are always more facts to learn about the animal world. And today, you're about to learn about one of nature's mysteries. Thanks to @AlexPetrovnia, we had taken the time to thoroughly look into this mystery, you're about to learn about the truth behind why we don't find fossils in the Appalachian mountains.

The truth is, we do, they're just not the kind of fossils you might think of-there are no mammals, no dinosaurs, no reptiles. There's something else entirely. 4:33 PM Jul 15, 2021 Twitter for iPhone 36.7K Retweets 8,172 Quote Tweets 181.8K Likes'

Cats Mildly Annoying Their Owners (Viral Tweets)

Listen, you signed up for this, okay? When you got your adorable little fluffball, you knew that you were getting both someone that will love you and will be your bestest friend but also... a tiny demon. That's just how cats are. But that doesn't mean that we're not allowed to be fondly fed up with them sometimes. 

A tweet went viral, showcasing exactly that kind of fondly fed up cat owner, and other cat owners started tweeting about their stories of their own little furry hooligans. And though, as cat owners, we definitely sympathize with the struggle, it's also... extremely funny to read about other cat owners having to go through it.

Twitter Thread: Finland Attempts To Save Reindeer Using Reflective Paint

As animal lovers, we know that people will go to incredible lengths to help an animal in need, whether it's by adopting stray sick animals who can't take care of themselves or rescuing sick 'ugly' fish who've been abused by their previous owners. And when it comes to animal preservation, people will do the same, helping animals procreate, rescuing and releasing animals back into the wild, or - as in this case - painting reindeer antlers with reflective paint to attempt to stop them from being hit by cars.

It is really unfortunate that this experiment did not work, but we're glad to see people trying to save animal populations. And having this thread go viral on twitter definitely helps bring more attention to the issue at hand, so hopefully, other solutions will be attempted and succeed.

Marvel At This Money Shot of a Plane Dumping Fish Into a Lake

The phrase "You learn something new every day" is widely attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson, and we have really got to give Twitter some props for bringing an insane amount of truth to those words. It feels like every time we log onto the bird app, we learn something horrible, interesting, or altogether puzzling. Fortunately, today's learning moment falls into the "interesting" category, and involves a plane dumping a buttload of fish into a beautiful Utah lake. 

The video comes to us from Kansas City's KCTV5 Twitter account (and Reuters), who shared the footage of the "aerial restocking" with the assurance that the "survival of aerial-stocked fish is incredibly high." Restocking lakes with native species is important, but some lakes aren't reachable by car. That's where planes come in.

 Knowing that most fish were not harmed in this process allows us to truly appreciate the insanity of what looks like the plane diarrhea-ing into pristine wilderness waters. We're not the only appreciators of this crazy video. The clip went viral pretty quickly, inspiring awestruck reactions, concern, and, of course, jokes on Twitter. While some were better than others, we're just glad to see this phenomenon in video form. Here's hoping some of the fishies get to enjoy their new homes before finding themselves on the end of a hook.

Family With 9 Cats Allows Man To Adopt Their 10th In Heartwarming Letter

Get ready for one of the most incredibly heartwarming adoption stories ever. A family with no less than 9 cats has come across a 10th, and even though some would say that 9 cats is quite a lot, for this family, 9 cats are fine, it's number 10 where the line is finally crossed. So, with a sad heart, the kids in this family realized that the 10th kitten needs to go to someone else, and the person who adopted it got a letter from these kids that is so heartwarming, we challenge you not to smile while reading it. 

Adoption stories are always wholesome, but this one is something special. Not only is this family happy to adopt so many cats in need, when they give one away, it is with the hope of making the adopted happier as well. Get the tissues, folks, and say thank you to this momma for raising some amazing kids.

Concerned Owner Looks For Lost Cat And Finds It In Funny Encounter

If your cat is an outdoor cat, then you, as the owner, know that shenanigans are on the horizon. Your cats will annoy you mildly when they come back and scream by the front door for you to open it. You know that sometimes you'll find your cat in the weirdest places, sitting at some restaurant or visiting their other families outside. You don't know what is going on in their lives outside, and you accept it. But, if your cat is an indoors cat, and it runs away... that's grief right there. 

The cat doesn't necessarily see it that way though, and this hilarious and viral twitter thread about a cat that ran away and was found the same day proves it. Not only did this little cat hooligan have the gall to run away with no warning, when it was found 12 hours later, it had the nerve to make faces and act all sassy. 

Welp, at least we got a funny cat picture out of it and some absolutely hilarious viral tweets.

People's Favorite Bits To Annoy Their Spouse

Just about every relationship is built on a strong foundation of the annoying things people's spouses do. Sometimes that's their inability to wrap extension cords correctly, and other times it's their insistence on introducing their current wife as "my ex girlfriend." We all have our jokes. Is love just the capacity to tolerate your partner's stupid bits? Seems like that's part of it.

People Can't Stop Comparing 'Cars' Characters To Celebs, Now We Believe In Doppelgangers

It sure is nice to think about the possibility of there being someone somewhere across the world who looks exactly like you. It happens all the time that we mistake certain celebs for someone else like Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry. Side note: if you haven't googled a side-by-side of them yet, we highly recommend it, it even blew Perry's mind. Who knows if the rest of us will be as lucky in discovering our doppelgangers, but it may just be that they've already been animated.

On Twitter, people can't stop pointing out how similar these 'Cars' characters look to certain celebs, and it is thoroughly entertaining.

Paintings Of Cats Destroying Stuff Through The Centuries (Twitter Thread)

Every cat owner in the world knows two things: 1. Cats are the best thing in the world. 2. Cats are jerks

Listen, we can admit it. Cats being jerks and having annoying habits like sleeping on our fresh laundry or constantly trying to eat food off our plates - none of that stops us from loving them to death. And apparently, that's been the case throughout the centuries. 

@Manglewood on twitter who previously provided the internet with one of the most wholesome twitter threads of naval ship cats in tiny hammocks throughout history has done it again, giving the internet one of the funniest cat twitter threads of cats straight-up destroying all of our stuff in painting through the centuries. 

You're doing very impawtent work for the cat world, @Manglewood, stay strong.
