An orange cat befriended a young girl when he showed up outside her home in Brooklyn, New York. She began feeding the friendly stray and he just kept coming back.

When the cat returned late last month, with an injury, he hopped onto the windowsill, crying for help. The young girl and her family were able to rescue him and take him to Little Wanderers NYC, so he could receive the medical attention he needed.

"Little Wanderers does not turn a blind eye to friendly cats on the street. Carlton (the orange cat) was sick and had a huge cut behind his ear that required sutures," Little Wanderers NYC shared.

Baby Bubblegum had all the odds stacked up against him when he came to Alley Cat Rescue in Los Angeles. He was just half the size of his siblings and battling a host of health issues.

"He was just 71 grams when we got him at 10 days old. He was so little and frail at first that he kept falling over when we weighed him," Alley Cat Rescue told Love Meow.

When his litter mates began to play and run, Bubblegum would waddle up to them and try to be in the middle of all the action.

A kitten with a pair of mesmerizing eyes is so happy to never have to live another day on the street.

Lenny the kitten with big round eyesCommunity Cat Club

A Good Samaritan from New Jersey found a stray cat and her kittens in their neighborhood and tried to help them. The mother cat sadly didn't survive the elements of the outdoors. The kittens were then taken to a local shelter as they needed medical attention and a foster home.

Sara Sharp, founder and president of Community Cat Club (a cat rescue in South Jersey), saw their plight and immediately offered to help. The kittens were in rough shape and one of them was just half the size for her age. Despite their very best efforts to save them both, the smaller kitten lost her fight.

Lenny, the sole survivor, pulled through with incredible might. When he met Sara for the first time, he looked at her with his wondrous eyes and was eager for her attention.

Kitten with 'Funnel Chest' is Half the Size But Has Brave Endearing Personality

A kitten with a congenital condition is just half of weight he should be. But what he lacks in size, he makes up for in personality.

Tiny Tim the kittenSheets Pet Clinic

Tiny Tim the kitten was brought into the foster/adoption program at Sheets Pet Clinic (an animal hospital and spay-neuter clinic in North Carolina) because he had a chest bone deformity and needed specialized medical attention.

"He was one of the eight kittens born to a very young mom. The people who found his mom and siblings thought he was the runt and wasn't growing," Sarah Hodges at Sheets Pet Clinic shared with Love Meow.

Tiny Tim is eight weeks old weighing only 13 ounces, with the body of a 4-week-old kitten. He has been diagnosed with pectus excavatum (also called funnel chest), a condition in which the breastbone sinks into the chest.

Kitten Carries Her Lamb Wherever She Goes After Being Brought into Foster Alone

A kitten adores her cuddle lamb and insists on carrying it with her wherever she goes.

Matilda Beans and her cuddle lambAshley @bruceandfoxfosters

Earlier this year, Wrenn Rescues (in California) took in a litter of kittens in need of medical attention. The runt of the litter, Matilda Beans, was very frail and struggling with an upper respiratory infection.

"Everyone else improved, but she only got sicker until it got to a really critical point. I have ICU equipment at my house, so it was decided that she should come to my house to get through her sickness," Ashley Kelley, a fosterer who specializes in neonatal and special needs kittens, told Love Meow.

As it turned out, the tabby was battling a host of health issues including a severe case of pneumonia. Despite the grim prognosis from the vets, the kitten held on with all her might, and Ashley knew she had to give her a fighting chance.

A kitten had her life turned around when a couple took her in along with her brother so they could thrive together.

Two tiny week-old kittens were found in a neighborhood of Las Vegas without a mother in sight. They were brought to a local animal rescue, desperately needing foster care. Patricia Lika, an experienced kitten fosterer, stepped up to help when she saw the plea.

A few days later, Patricia noticed that the kittens were dealing with neonatal ophthalmia, an infection of the unopened eyes. She immediately started treating them with multiple daily warm compresses, eye medication and antibiotics. "This is the reality of kittens born in the streets in filthy environments to young moms or moms who had litter after litter," Patricia shared with Love Meow.

The brother and sister duo (Grogu and Leia) cheered each other on in their comfy, warm nest. Grogu would rub his face against his sister as if to try to comfort her.

The runt of the litter, Dove, needed extra nursing time and lots of TLC. Angela made sure that the kitten had her mom to herself when her siblings were sleeping. "She began to grow steadily every day."
