She was found living in a Brooklyn backyard, emaciated and dehydrated, struggling to keep her last surviving kitten alive.
Josefina, the kind-hearted woman who found the struggling Mom and her sole surviving kitten knew they need help right away. So she contacted Stephanie Tulien, Adoptions Director of Little Wanderers NYC. Knowing how urgent the situation was, Stephanie got to the scene as quickly as she could.
What Stephanie found was enough to break her heart. A starving cat Mom and her only surviving kitten, covered in so many fleas you could actually see them crawling over her tiny body.
This brave Mom was doing her best to keep her only surviving kitten alive, however, she was in danger of losing the battle and needed help ASAP.
Their living conditions were appalling, to say the least. They were both dehydrated and extremely malnourished.
