Top Viral Stories Of The Week - September 4th, 2015

From a tattoo with a hidden message to an unlikely cause of one woman's headaches, there was no shortage of attention-grabbing stories this week. In case you fell off the grid a bit, here are a few that made waves.

1. Fisherman catches and rescues two kittens swimming in river

Two men were fishing in Alabama when they spotted two kittens struggling to swim through the water. The men brought the tiny orange kittens aboard their boat and dried them off.

Jason Frost and Brandon Key can't say where the kittens may have come from since there are no houses for miles -- it's likely they were dumped on the river bank and were so desperate that they swam.

The men found a home for the kittens.

2. College student's unique tattoo illusion goes viral

A George Fox University student is getting a lot of attention over a tattoo.

20 year-old Bekah Miles recently got a leg tattoo that creatively describes the struggles she faces living with depression.

The leg tattoo appears to read "I'm fine," but when you glance at it from another perspective, looking down at the leg -- as Miles sees it -- the tattoo reads, "Save me."

In a Facebook post, Miles admits she was diagnosed with depression a year ago.

"To me, it means that others see this person that seems okay, but, in reality, is not okay at all. It reminds me that people who may appear happy, may be at battle with themselves," Miles wrote.

Miles says she got the tattoo to help rid the topic of depression of it's negative stigma.

3. Larvae is cause of one woman's headaches

After years of headaches, a Texas woman learned the crawling cause. Doctors discovered sacs of larvae from eight tapeworm eggs inside 31-year-old Yadira Rostro's brain.

Neurosurgeon Dr. Richard Meyrat explained that Rostro likely picked up the parasite when she was in Mexico two years ago. It's possible that she ate food contaminated with fecal matter.

While the parasite typically goes right through people, Meyrat says Rostro wasn't so lucky and the parasite got into her bloodstream -- and then into her brain.

Doctors removed the eggs last month and Rostro is expected to make a full recovery.
