An adorable little kitten by the name of Wasabi-chan has stolen the hearts of many and has become an Internet sensation. The viral photo originally shared on Imgur shows a tiny kitten sitting upright on a chair. The baby cat is wearing a brown and cream- colored crocheted mushroom costume complete with armholes for the kitten's paws.

The mushroom costume is more than just a cute costume for Wasabi-chan, it's also a healing tool. The little kitten reportedly survived a crow attack where she suffered a fractured upper jaw and split tongue. Wasabi-chan required a catheter for feedings but like any kitten would, she kept wiggling the tube out of her mouth so the mushroom suit was made to hold her down while feeding.

Histak then linked to a more recent image of Wasabi-chan to Twitter, adding, "She's gaining a lot of weight and looking adorable!" Take a look at the picture below.

Wasabi-chan's recovery was documented on Twitter by her human companion, which garnered him 50,000 more followers who cheered on Wasabi-chan's treatment. A photo of Wasabi-chan wearing her pink tube was retweeted more than 27,000 times.
