Marshmallow, The Tiny Kitten That Could (Video)

A kitten named Marshmallow who weighed only 2.3 ounces at birth — 60 percent of the average weight of a newborn kitten — is defying the odds and looks like she’s going to make it.  The little kitten spent her first month of life on heating pads and in heated “rice socks,” all under the watchful care of her mother, Mochi, as Raw Story notes. ”Marshy” is now seven times her original weight and is ready to move beyond the box where she’s been spending her days under Mochi’s watchful eyes.

If your Wednesday has been filled with a few more frustrations than you’d like, this video of “Marshy” at one month may cheer you up.

That one of the sweetest video's ever. When I saw her in the slipper I really understood how tiny she is. I hope we see more of her as she grows.
