Yoda (aka PeeWee) is the runt in the litter of five kittens that were born to a stray cat mother. Even though he is the smallest, he is quite smart. While his bigger siblings were wrestling over other places, Yoda found a good spot to nurse on Viva's tummy and grew leaps and bounds.

Yoda gets along with anyone. All the kittens seem to like him. He is sociable and lovable. The kittens like to keep him in the middle of the batch when they snuggle together for a nap.

It's been more than a month since the little ones were born. "(Yoda) is still smaller than the others, but has been growing and filling out well - his new nickname reflects his gravitas and occasional whimsicality," said Elyce, Yoda's foster mom.

“Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes.”
