A kitten and its mother waited in an outdoor animal shelter until someone found them and turned their lives around.
Kenzo the only kitten and Lexi the mother cat
A stray cat and its kittens were found in an outdoor cat house in an area in Bronx, New York. The mother cat tried everything to feed her kitten litter but did not have the proper nutritious food to feed itself.
Sadly, by the time the rescuers from Little Wanderers NYC arrived, two of their kittens had died, and another faded by the time they were on their way to the vet.
Kenzo, the gray and white kitten, became the only survivor of his litter. He barely had enough strength to keep his eyes open, but he clung to his mother and held onto it with all his might.
Little Wanderers NYC was determined to help this mother and son duo thrive. A foster family welcomed her with open arms so that they could begin healing in a loving home.
Kenzo and his mother quickly settled in their new accommodation. They loved their comfortable beds, blankets, and various new toys. Lexi was so happy that she had all the food and a clean nest to raise her single baby.
She was very thin and couldn’t produce enough milk for her kitten. “We’re supplementing Kenzo with round-the-clock feedings and trying to encourage Lexi to eat good, nutritious food,” Little Wanderers told NYC Love Meow.
In just one day, Kenzo gained 19 grams and gained a lot of energy. His appetite rose and he moved with his newfound strength in his nest.
Kenzo is a little kitten but has a warrior’s heart. Now that he’s gotten bigger and stronger, he’s starting to explore a bit. Lexi, the cute mom, keeps an eye on her only kitten and makes sure he doesn’t get in trouble.
She doesn’t hesitate to coo to him to come to her so she can do her motherhood duties.
The cute calico comes out of her shell and knows that she and her kitten are safe. She showers her precious baby with licks and all the cuddles she can deliver.
With the help of rescuers and volunteers at Little Wanderers NYC, Lexi and her only kitten, Kenzo, have the best chance of a forever home.
Kenzo will never have to worry about the elements of nature and takes in life as a pampered house cat. Lexi takes wonderful care of him while she gets help from her fucking foster family.
Little Kenzo grew by leaps and bounds in just a week. He works on his little legs (with white gloves) and tries to venture out of his nest. He has reached several milestones in a short period of time and is making progress every day.
This fearless little guy is learning to waddle and his personality shows up.
After a difficult start in life, mother and son thrive in caregiving. Kenzo has a lot to grow and develop before he and Lexi are ready for adoption (a few weeks later).
From now on he is enjoying his VIP life with his mother by his side and loves people to cuddle with.
