Life is sometimes cruel and no matter how hard we try to fit in and be loved it’s simply impossible. But that doesn’t mean that we should quit trying. What we endure, and how we deal with our problems is what makes us who we are. The story about a tiny kitten that suffered so much and never lost the ability to love will give you a new perspective of looking at life.
