A hungry kitten wandered into a family's yard for food and had her life turned around.

A resident from a neighborhood in Montreal, Canada heard a kitten's cries coming from her yard. As she looked outside, she found a little stray meowing by her door, trying to get inside.

The kitten was all alone without a mom in sight. When she noticed the woman, she cried even louder as if she was begging for something to eat. The homeowner brought a can of food and laid it down on the porch. Within minutes, the hungry feline scarfed it down.

No one came to claim the kitten so the woman reached out to her local animal rescue, Chatons Orphelins Montréal, for help.

Maureen and Milena, volunteers of the rescue, drove to the neighborhood to pick up the kitten. They wanted to get her to safety that day, so the kitty wouldn't have to fend for herself on the street for another day.

When they arrived, the little stray walked right up to them as if to say she was ready to leave the street life behind. "That night, the kitten was safe in the arms of the rescuers," Celine Crom of Chatons Orphelins Montréal shared with Love Meow.

The cat was around three months old, just skin and bones and in need of medical attention. "She was very thin when she came to us. We could tell that she hadn't eaten for a long time. That's probably why she went to the family for help," Celine added.

"We named her Penny. She quickly warmed up to our rescuers and purred throughout the car ride."

After being seen by the vet and treated for fleas and parasites, the kitten was taken to a foster home where she would learn to socialize. It was a big change for the little stray who had lived most of her life outdoors.

For the first few days, Penny kept to herself in her hiding spot, watching all the action unfold around her.

"It took several days before she adjusted to indoor life. She slowly came out of her shell and started to play with toys," Celine shared with Love Meow.

Penny was happy to have a bountiful supply of food and always ate to her heart's content. In just a few days, she really filled out.

Now that the kitten is healthy with a full belly, she's getting more playful and energetic each day. "She enjoys soft things and she really likes being on top of the cat tree, so we can come and pet her."

Penny has a knack for finding secret napping places whether it is a basket filled with laundry or inside of a random cabinet. She never ceases to surprise her humans with her adorable little quirks.

After a few weeks in foster care, the former stray was ready for her next chapter in life.

A family came across Penny's story and was instantly smitten with the adorable little face.

They came to visit her last week and made her a permanent part of their family. It was a dream come true for sweet Penny.
