A kitten was found near a construction site all alone when a Good Samaritan heard her cries.

Last month, a Good Samaritan heard meowing near a construction site in Los Angeles and found a tiny kitten without a mother in sight. The little feline was just a few days old, hungry and crying nonstop.

Alley Cat Rescue was contacted and immediately rushed to her rescue. "We assume because of all the noise at the construction site that the mom ran away," Alley Cat Rescue shared with Love Meow. "We will do all we can to help and nurture her."

They started feeding the kitten (named Chickpea) every two hours and made sure she was warm and loved.

The tiny calico whose eyes were still closed, took some time to figure out how to latch onto a bottle. Once she got a hang of it, she was eating like a champ.

After every feeding, she curled up in the crook of her foster mom's neck for some extra TLC.

The kitten was treated for parasites, and after several very rocky days, Chickpea was nursed back to health and even discovered how to purr.

"She loves cuddles and rubs after each feeding and purrs in delight," the rescue said.

"Chickpea is happy as long as she gets fed, stays warm, has a beating heart, nice music and lots of love."

Over the next few days, the kitten began to put on weight and her eyes started to crack open.

Chickpea continued to gobble down her bottles, and would purr up a storm before and after each feeding.

"Amazing what huge changes happen in 10 days," Alley Cat Rescue shared with Love Meow.

Her sense of hearing, smell and sight grew stronger and sharper. She started to waddle around her nest, trying to learn to walk and explore.

The little singleton demands constant attention from her foster parents whenever possible. With love and patience, she will not have to live another day alone.

"Baby Chickpea is doing great and her foster parents are doing a wonderful job with her."

It's been a month since she was found. The little calico has blossomed into a rambunctious kitten with bright eyes and a big personality.

Chickpea has a strong purr motor that she immediately switches on when she is petted.

Nothing makes her happier than cuddling with her humans and purring herself to sleep.
