A wonderful lady spotted a tiny newborn kitten on the side of a busy road all alone. He was just a few hours old, the tinniest thing she had seen.
The kind woman rushed the kitten to get help. He weighed just 0.16 lbs (72 grams) at the time, but this little preemie baby had a fighting spirit like a tiger!
Megan, a fosterer from @meggiecatsmeows took in the tiny fur baby and started feeding him every two hours to build him up. "My foster baby 'Parker' is beyond tiny," she said. "It's very hard when the babies are this young without a mommy."
His coloring is very unique. If you look at his back, it appears that he has a pair of wings. "Those wings carried him to safety as he was only hours old when he was found on the side of a busy road and brought to me. He's a very special kitten," said Megan who has been fostering for five years and has saved over 50 babies.

The day Meggie returned her foster kitten to the shelter for adoption, it was the hardest she had felt. "I know I saved him and that's the only thing that's getting me through letting him go." So she can continue helping other kitties find their forever homes.
