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!

People living with intellectual disabilities are too often overlooked in our society. People dismiss them as "slow" or "unable," and they can't open their minds enough to understand that these individuals are just like you and me...they're trying to make it through life the best way they know how. Amanda Cartagine knows the stigma that those with intellectual disabilities can face, as her son has Down's syndrome. She knows that sometimes these kids need
In case you haven't heard, the United States government is partially shut down, for what is now the longest stretch under any president in history. President Trump is refusing to put through a bill that covers the costs of operating parts of the government until Democrats agree to fund his $5.7 billion border wall, which means that essential government workers are going without pay. Border patrol agents, TSA workers, and postal workers are just
Nurses have an incredibly hard job, there's no other way to say it. They are underpaid, overworked, and always responsible for someone else's life. It's hard to imagine working in a profession where every day was a matter of life and death. Jessica Urtz knows this struggle well, as she's a stroke nurse in Rome, New York. Every day is spent caring for other people while she works herself into exhaustion. According to her husband

I have two cats, and I love them more than almost anything in the world. But at the same time, I'll be the first to admit they're the biggest jerks in the world. They expect us to do everything for them, and then they get to decide if we get their attention or not. But in the end, cats are the most lovable jerks in the world. We still love them to death, even when
