Cassidy’s first steps in his tiny wheelchair

There are a lot of amazing and inspirational stories around the world about cats (and other animals), their survival, and the good people who helped them and saved them.

Some claim cats eat it to make themselves vomit. Some people believe cats eat grass to help pass fur balls along while others say they just need the fiber for other nutritional purposes.
