Read Mighty Mouse's Thought For The Day - Every Day
This is the story of a tiny kitten - a runt, who was not expected to live. He refused to give in - he struggled against being put to sleep and left to die - even though people mistook him for some kind of alien mouse and not a kitten. His heart is bigger than a mountain - his love is boundless. He is an inspiration to everyone who comes in contact with him

Hi everyone.... It's been a strange weekend but Olivers eye infection seems to have cleared up and he and D'Arcy have been having lots of cuddle time. I don't know what they're up to - but they don't seem to want company.
There are times when my boys just need....well.....boys' time
Born in a litter of 6 to a beautiful Birman queen, the kittens looked to have a good start being normal weight. But within 24 hours, their mother had no milk and the kittens needed to be handraised. By the time he was 11 days old, barely hanging on to life, 2 of the kittens had died. He was the size of a mouse and weighed less than 100grams when he was a week old. His breeder struggled to hand feed the remaining 4 kittens without help, but it was an impossible task. She took him to the vet at 4 weeks to be put to sleep. But something about him persuaded the vet not to put him down. When I first encountered him, HE WOULDN'T STOP PURRING. In order to save the older 3 kittens, MM was destined to die - his luck had run out, and that's when I took him. It was his last chance and all the odds were against him. He weighed 210grams - which is about 7 ounces at 4.3 weeks and was mistaken at the vet's for an exotic Mouse. NOBODY expected him to live. But he had other ideas. You can read his story by following the link and joining Cat World ( a very simple process)- and that in turn has a link to his first few weeks. Enjoy
