A kitten runs into backyard looking for food and finds a home

Kitten goes to a yard to look for food and has also found a home.

Alexa Elliot, a rescue volunteer of Little Wanderers NYC, has been caring for the community cats in her area—feeding them, providing shelter, and getting them spayed/neutered.

A cat showed up one day with an orange kitten running around in the backyard. The cat left the kitten on the porch where the food was, as if ready to hand it over to its caretaker.

“The kitten was around six weeks old at that point. He was curious, calm, and not aggressive in any way. He was different than any other feral kitten,” Alexa shared with Love Meow.

The orange-spotted cat came back every day for snacks and food, and ran around the yard as if it were his playground. He kept his distance from Alexa but was intrigued.

“I started the process of arresting him, and since he naturally confides, it only took me a few days.”

The kitten named Spruce ran around in the backyard like he owned it

The kitten named Spruce was then taken inside and placed in an enclosure so that he could relax and decompress. He was very shy at first and tried to hide, as he had never interacted with humans before.

With a little tranquility and good food, he began to be affectionate with his people.

He came back for food until he was rescued

Alexa cleaned him up with a warm bath and treated his eye for a mild infection. Spruce felt calm and comforted when he was wrapped in a towel like a little “purrito.”

After several cuddle sessions and plenty of pets, the tabby boy came out of his shell completely and started playing up a storm.

Spruce got a much-needed bath and lots of TLC

Spruce was packed with energy and would unleash it by running around the house and pouncing on toys.

He was so happy to have a warm place, comfy beds, and all the food at his disposal.

Once he realized how good it felt to be hugged, he became obsessed with getting the attention of his humans.

Little purrito

In just a few days, Spruce became a bundle of joy.

With the help of Little Wanderers NYC, the kitten got his dream home when a great family came to adopt him just in time for the vacation.

Spruce will never have to spend another day on the street.

Happy and loved

A kitten goes into a backyard to look for food and is rescued. This is the perfect ending.
