A little calico kitten was found crying in a construction site. A kind family took her in and turned her life around.

Last week, the life of a tiny 2-day-old kitten was changed forever when a Good Samaritan heard her cries in a construction site in New York City. The little bundle of fur was located inside a wall at the site, all alone.

Little Wanderers NYC, an all-volunteer rescue, was contacted about the orphan calico. They immediately stepped in to help. “She was left behind inside a wall, screaming her head off. The mom must have moved the others and didn’t come back for this one,” Little Wanderers shared with Love Meow.

They were able to safely retrieve the kitten who was frail and dirty. She was so small that she fit perfectly in her rescuer’s palm. Her eyes were still closed and ears folded, but the tiny calico had a strong will to live and a loud voice which led to her rescue.

They named her Lizzie. She was very small but embodied the spirit of a warrior. As soon as she was cuddled, she calmed down and started wiggling about, sniffing around for food.

Mashaal Memon, foster counselor of Little Wanderers NYC, took the kitten into her loving home so the little neonate could be bottle fed around the clock. Lizzie was a great eater from the start and an instant love-bug.

“Every week, we take in 10-15 cats and kittens at our rescue. We are overwhelmed by the need, so Mashaal is fostering this little baby. We are always looking for more bottle feeders,” Little Wanderers told Love Meow.

Raising a tiny neonate is a very taxing job. Soon, several members of Mashaal’s family joined the bottle feeding squad to care for the kitten.

“Baby Lizzie is being taken care of by the whole family. It’s a family affair.”

They set up a feeding schedule to provide Lizzie food every two hours and plenty of love and snuggles throughout the day. The sweet calico gobbles down the kitten formula like a champ and is so happy to be cared for.

Mashaal’s brother Muddy is smitten with the little calico and caters to her every need. After she gets a full belly, he gently places her on his shoulder for some one-on-one cuddle time.

Lizzie loves his beard and likes to rub her face against it. Perhaps, it reminds her of her mom.

Sweet Lizzie sleeps in her comfy incubator which helps regulate her body temperature. She has a big snuggle toy equipped with a heartbeat so she can nuzzle in it for comfort like being with her mother.

Mashaal’s mother made a few tiny pillows, the size of a kitten, and placed them near Lizzie so the little calico would not feel alone and always have something to snuggle with.

“Bottle feeding is no joke but such a rewarding experience. The little bean is thriving,” Mashaal wrote.

In just a few days, Lizzie has put on weight and gained a cute, chonky belly. Soon, her eyes will start to open.

After a rough start to life, the little calico is blossoming into a happy, snuggly kitty, with a whole family that loves her to bits.
