Employee Heard Kitten’s Cries and Found Tiny Kitty Outside Their Store


About two weeks ago, a tiny calico kitten was found abandoned in a box in front of a PetSmart in Philadelphia.

An employee spotted a box outside their store early in the morning. Upon closer inspection, they found a kitten inside all alone.

They brought her to the Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia. The kitty was in desperate need of foster care. Shauna of Noah’s Ark Rescue (NARPS Cats in Uwchlan, Pennsylvania) learned about the kitten’s plight and immediately offered to help.

“She was found when the store opened so the poor thing was out in the cold all night. It’s a wonder she didn’t succumb to the elements,” Shauna told Love Meow.

The kitten whom they named Apache, was just a few days old. Her eyes hadn’t even opened. (Scroll down for video)

“She was 4.7 ounces when I got her,” Shauna added. “So tiny but she was loud and energetic right away, which is a great thing for an infant kitten.”

When the calico was given a bottle, she latched on right away and started eating. “She loves mealtimes, so she lets me know loudly when she’s ready to be fed,” Shauna said.
