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 -

So many of Oliver's aunties and friends seem to have missed the bulk of the photos of when he was very young and very tiny.

What you are seeing in these pics is not a two or three day old kitten but the miracle Mighty Mouse between 4 and 5 weeks.

Hard to believe now that he weighed just 210 grams at 4 weeks

For the first 4 weeks that I had him he was fed every hour 24/7 and spent his time sleeping in my bra or inside my dressing gown so that he could hear my heart beat. I had only ever hand raised one kitten before and that was 34 years ago.
When I look at him now it is hard to believe this tiny weird looking creature survived at all...let alone grew into the beautiful Oliver.
He'll be back tomorrow with his thought for the day and tomorrow a Classic adventure from the Archives!
