"He still hasn't opened his eyes. We found the kitten on the doorstep by himself. We were shocked. It's summer in Lima and it was a very hot day to be outside for a newborn," Lorena Castro told Love Meow.

The kitten is now in good hands and paws. Castro owns many dogs she rescued and they are all helping out to look after the little orphaned kitten.

"We have introduced Benito to all the rescue dogs. My dog Tiara is taking care of him along with another rescue kitten saved from the busiest street in Lima," Castro said.

Benito has learned to drink from a bottle.
