Not all people are willing to take in a special-needs animal. They are harder to take care of and sometimes not able to do everything you would want them to. But being a little different doesn’t make them any less worthy of your love.These animals will love you unconditionally if you only give them a chance, and every owner of such little fella knows that.

Do you have a “not so perfect” pet that has a special place in your heart? Share pictures here!

This is terrible. No one should ever be allowed to poison anything - much less a living thing. This poor Cat now can barely eat anything. And I am quite sure that the sick, awful person whom did this probably did not care. This damaged a poor, innocent animal's life forever. But, someone adopted this poor sweetheart. Someone showed this Cat the love and kindness it deserves. Otherwise, this Cat might not have made it. Whoever adopted this cat, thank you.

Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (E.P.I.) is when part of the pancreas shuts down and does not produce digestive enzymes. The enzymes are what break down our food, allowing our nutrients to be absorbed through the small intestine. When the body is unable to produce those enzymes, nothing is absorbed, the dog just has horrible diarrhea, and essentially starves to death (despite eating multiple times a day). This is treated by mixing powdered enzymes (extracted from pig pancreas) with every single meal (including treats, bones, etc) for the rest of Neville's life. He's not even 2 yet, but I'm glad he has a life to look forward to! ❤️ I love this dog so much. He saved me from the deepest depression after a divorce and is just my everything :)
