The only thing stronger than the will to live is the power of love. No one knows this better than Ollie, a tiny kitten that looked like an "alien rat."
When he was handed over to Imgur user, CaliCatlady101, he was so small, just one day old, that his eyes were still closed and he couldn't even purr. Thankfully, Cali knew exactly what to do and she dedicated herself to nursing this little one.
He was just one day old when he met his new mama. Even though her friend thought he looked like an 'alien rat,' Cali knew that he was something special!
He was small and scared, but his new mom wasn't going to give up on him.
He needed constant cuddles
Cali would wrap the little kitten into a "purrito" and keep him snuggled up against her heart.
He drank lots and lots of milk
His personality started to develop, and even though it was a weird one, his mom loved him
Ollie's favorite snuggle spot was the inside pocket of Cali's sweater - purrfect fit!
Soon he would open his eyes!
He no longer looked like an "alien rat"
Little Ollie was growing into quite the handsome boy! He has turned into one of the most stunning cats...
He started getting more adventurous and excitable
But he still loved to snuggle...
This is Ollie at 3 weeks old:
And this is him at One-and-a-half-months old - what a beautiful boy!
Even though he never knew his cat-mom, he quickly learned the cat essentials like napping in a sunbeam
And looking adorable no matter what
Thanks to Cali, Ollie is healthy, happy and handsome!
When I look at my sweet little pug, I know that while he is the most perfect and precious thing in my eyes, most people wouldn't be able to tell him apart from most other pugs. I mean, obviously he's the most handsome one, but his coloring is pretty much exactly like every other fawn-colored pug out there.
However, some animals end up with a crazy and unique pattern that looks as though they have
One was an attacker. One was a volunteer first responder. One lost her leg. Another lost his little boy. And a police officer very nearly lost his own life.
Half a decade ago, these five lives probably never would have intersected. Then bombs bloodied the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three spectators, wounding 260 others, and forever linking a villain to his victims and the heroes who rushed to help them.
