Meet Wasabi-chan. The tiny Japanese kitten was found crying on the street last month after surviving a vicious crow attack, that left her with a fractured jaw and a hole in her throat.
Since then, her rescuers have been documenting the tiny tabby's progress on Twitter and Instagram, where she can be seen growing healthier (and even more adorable) by the day.
Due to her severe mouth injuries, Wasabi-chan had to be fed with a tube. She reacted violently to the treatment, so her owner's grandma crocheted tiny outfits to keep the kitten still, while she received her much needed sustenance.
Marvel at Wasabi-chan's perfectly handcrafted mushroom outfit.
And her brief stint as cod roe.
Which inspired some incredible fan art, like a stamp by @Movie0girl,
And a wool doll by @Ayanya.
Once Wasabi-chan started feeling stronger, she started to explore!
And quickly went paws up for new friends.
Like these friendly pups...
And a red velvet cake (why not?).
She even had a top secret meeting with E.T., where they reminisced about their home planet.
Today, this lil' lady is doing great, and you can follow her adventures on Instagram, where there are videos of her too!
I've see quite a lot of kittens in my day, so I don't think I'm out of bounds saying that Wasabi-chan is quite possibly the cutest kitten in the world. Do you agree?
