These little kitties prove that amazing things come in small packages. Elfie and Gimli are two siblings who were brought a shelter in British Columbia, Canada, with their mom when they were just kittens.
While their mom was a healthy, average-sized cat, shelter staff quickly realized that Elfie and Gimli had dwarfism.
"Luckily for Elfie and Gimli they ended up in a shelter where staff members were familiar with dwarfism in cats," their mom wrote on their Facebook page.
Gimli and Elfie's adoptive mom was actually the one who processed their intake in the shelter - she fell in "love at first sight" and agreed to be their foster mom ... and a month later she adopted them for good.
Now Gimli and Elfie's mom and dog use their quirky looks and large following on social media to promote adoption, tagging their posts with #AdoptDontShop and encouraging followers to rescue animals from their local shelters.
After all, without the shelter that saved them, who knows what would have happened to Elfie and Gimli?
