A tiny kitten who was spotted outside abandoned, shows so much strength. Now, she has a cat to watch her grow.

Earlier this month, a calico kitten was spotted outside with a wound on one of her legs. She was immediately rushed to ACCT Philly for help.

"She was found abandoned in a box in North Philadelphia, and a Good Samaritan dropped her off at the shelter. It was obvious that there was something wrong with her right hind foot," Erica, a veterinary technician at ACCT Philly, shared with Love Meow.

After cleaning and treating the wound, the kitten was ready to start her healing process. "She needed somewhere to go, so I took her home to foster."

The kitten with the perfectly split markings on her face was lovingly named Phoebe. She was provided with a comfortable nest and plenty of soft bedding to knead on. She tucked herself under a blanket and blissfully started making "biscuits".

In no time, her walls came falling down, and she began to demand attention from her foster mom.

Every time Erica came to tend to her, Phoebe would cry for her attention and wouldn't take no for an answer. Despite having a bum leg, she was always on the move, and nothing seemed to ever slow her down.

Phoebe was eating slurry on her own and taking meds like a champ.

She put on weight steadily each day, and her energy quickly doubled.

The mischievous calico managed to escape her nursery one day, and figured out a way to climb onto the couch. She was persistent and repeated the escapade after being placed back into the pen.

What Phoebe lacks in size, she surely makes up for in sheer will and determination.

She set her mind to climb everything she'd lay her paws on, and she did just that. "She has now decided that trying to climb my legs is today's activity," Erica shared.

Erica gifted Phoebe a large plushy to keep her company, so she wouldn't feel alone. The sweet calico welcomed the sloth right into her crib.

She was glad to have a faux mama to snuggle with during her snooze hours.

In less than two weeks, Phoebe has grown in size and strength and even hit several milestones. She is now using her litter box and has so much sass in that tiny body.

"She's definitely the queen of the house."

Phoebe's leg is healing beautifully, and she is blossoming into a skilled climber who can clamber up a pillow mountain in seconds.

"She has started to climb into my bed and bite my fingers, so I'm hoping Forest (the resident cat) can teach her some manners."

Forest the foster extraordinaire has a soft spot for kitties in need. He's very sweet and nurturing to every foster that Erica brings home, as he was once in their shoes.

He came running to Phoebe when the little calico was getting a weight-in yesterday.

"I was trying to get an updated weight on Phoebe, and she was not having it. Her screams summoned Forest who had to make sure she was okay. I was finally able to get a weight, and she's hit a pound."

The two now enjoy hanging out together, snuggling next to each other as if they've always been friends.

Forest showers his new baby with snuggles and keeps her clean from head to toe. Phoebe is so much more content now that she has a real cuddle-buddy who makes her feel loved.
