Say meow-llo to Wasabi-chan, a tiny kitten that recovered from an injury in the cutest way possible.
The furry fighter survived a crow attack on June 2 and was rescued by a passerby who brought the injured kitty to an animal hospital. Wasabi-chan’s injuries included a fractured upper jaw and split tongue. She required a catheter for feedings, but as energetic kittens will do, Wasabi-chan wiggled the tube out of her mouth.
To prevent her from removing the feeding tube, Wasabi-chan’s rescuer outfitted her in crocheted costumes (or a “Purrito,” as one Redditor described it) that limited her movement. Not only did the getups look crazy adorable, they also helped Wasabi-chan get the nutrition she needed to heal.
Wasabi-chan’s human buddy documented her recovery process on Twitter, collecting 50,000 followers who cheered along the kitten’s progress. A photo of Wasabi-chan sporting her pink tube was retweeted more than 27,000 times.
Now she’s doing great:
