Lefty the teeny tiny tabby is thankful for a second chance at life. He was found only days old with a cold.

"A guy brought this orphan into our vets, having found him in some weeds in Jamaica, Queens (New York). He didn't seem like he could follow through so we took him in. I had to bring him to work for a couple of weeks, secreted in my desk drawer, so he could be fed regularly. He's now eating solid food and looking more and more like a cat and not a fuzzy insect," said Jimmy Legs.

Lefty is getting bigger and stronger. Though he's still recovering from his cold, he gets lots of love not only from his foster parents, but also other furry friends. The little fuzzball will soon be put up for adoption.
