A tiny black furball was found in the cold under a palm tree. This little man brought luck and joy to the family that saved him.

"On the 24th September 2010 whilst running back from the gym, my girlfriend noticed a tiny, bedraggled kitten huddled up and shaking under a palm tree, shaking and cold. We refused to leave it there so we picked it up, wrapped it in a towel and brought it home," wrote Paul A. on his flickr.

"My parents adopted him and have named him 'Buster'. He is now in a loving home where my parents treat him like the grandchild they will never have! He grows bigger and stronger every week and is a super member of our family," added Paul.

On the day he was rescued... safe now
