Take one look at Peanut, and it’s clear to see that he’s different. But the great thing about social media is that it embraces uniqueness!

A survivor

Peanut’s mum was rescued from the streets as a stray. He was one of four kittens born shortly after her rescue - but he was very different from his brothers and sisters.

Not only was he much smaller, weaker, and unable to drink from the teat, he was also completely disfigured. Peanut was born with only one eye, half a nose, and an impressive underbite.

...and inspiration

His looks have never been a problem for his family though, who love him with all their hearts. In fact, they love him so much that they started his own social media account to share him with the world! Thanks to his adorable photos and videos, Peanut is showing followers that looks have nothing to do with having a great big heart.

And with almost 200K, we can tell that the rest of the world agrees. Way to go Peanut!
