CaliCatlady101 is an imgur user that found Ollie online after a couple posted his pictures, indicating they had found him abandoned in a grocery store parking lot.

She instantly felt he belonged with her, despite her friend's saying the kitty was an 'ugly alien rat'.

She took the little guy in and noted he seemed somewhat healthy, despite being abandoned nearly immediately after birth.

But Ollie soon found where he liked to be and it melted her heart.

“One of the quickest ways to get a bottle baby to sleep is to put them near your heart. I would make a ‘purrito’ by wrapping Ollie in a small towel and tucking him in my shirt”

Ollie snuggles up right next to her heart and feels at home.

“He couldn’t purr yet, but look at that happy look on his sweet little face. This was about day 3 of having him.”

Ollie started to get sick and dehydrated, so she took him to the vet.  After being medicated and treated, Ollie came back home.

“Ollie woke up after an afternoon feed with BOTH EYES OPEN!! The eyes had been opening little by little over the past few days, but at 12 days old they finally opened fully, and Ollie gave this happy little dazed look of a happy and full baby :)”

The owner began to worry more and more after the vet visit, but the vet told her if he made it past the first week he had a good chance of survival.  Here's Ollie at 2 weeks!

The owner noted that Ollie would cry and cry if she wasn't near... This may be because Ollie is a solid white cat with blue eyes, an indicator of deafness in cats.  Ollie needs her more than she knows.

And so did his family! He doesn't seem to mind being a big brother one bit.

So kudos to you and all your hard work CaliCatlady101!  Raising a kitten from just one day old is such a hard task, but you did it with grace!  Ollie is a beautiful cat and so is the new addition. :)
