A kitten showed up outside a home on her own and was determined to move indoors that day.

A stray cream calico wandered to a resident's home and decided to hang out on their porch. She was seen all alone without a mother or siblings in sight.

The kitten stayed on the porch and had no plans of leaving. When the resident noticed her, the little one placed her paws on the railing as if she wanted to be let in. Worrying about her safety, the resident reached out to Detroit Community Cat Rescue, hoping to get the kitten some help.

"The caller told us she was the only kitty around, and she was afraid that the kitten would get hit by a car. We were there within the hour," Detroit Community Cat Rescue shared with Love Meow.

"(The kitten) was smaller than we expected. We decided to take her in. All of the neighbors thanked us for taking her."

She was lovingly named Nuggie, as she was tiny as a nugget and made mostly of fluff. Nuggie went home with Jennifer, a foster volunteer of the rescue, and turned a new chapter.

She was "darling, fragile and fierce" and had such spirit and determination to live and thrive. Nuggie quickly adjusted to the indoor life and never looked back.

With a comfortable environment, Nuggie could now rest and recuperate and would never go hungry again.

Nuggie settled into her new space and started using the cat tree, scratching posts, and the litter box. She was content to have a roof over her head, a bountiful supply of food, and doting humans to cater to her whims.

She was treated for a few health issues including an upper respiratory infection, but she took everything in stride. Nuggie was over the moon to have someone hover over her, making sure that she was loved.

Once Nuggie was nursed back to health, she was ecstatic to hang out and socialize with feline friends.

Nuggie has never met a stranger as she goes around the house befriending every kitty she comes across. Despite being so little, she holds her own when she plays. Nuggie is also a love-bug at heart.

When she met Rosebud, a tortoiseshell foster, it was love at first sight. Nuggie sat beside Rosebud, wrapped her arms around her and insisted on giving her a bath, in perfect Nuggie fashion.

The former stray has flourished into an adorable indoor cat with so much to offer. She is reveling in her new life and living everyday to the fullest.

There is no shortage of zoomies and cuddle-fests in the house.
