A tiny kitten was found alone outside and brought to an animal shelter late last month. At 7-8 weeks old, she barely weighed a pound and was just skin and bones beneath her fluffy coat.

The kitten had an injured lip and was covered in filth. “We imagine she was eating out of the garbage bin to stay alive – which also explains the injuries on her mouth. She needed a long, warm bath to get clean,” Homeward Bound Cat shared.

“Ellen Richter (a volunteer for Homeward Bound Cat) bundled her up in a blanket, and she spent her first night in her foster home knowing love and kindness.”

Despite a rough start, the kitten was surprisingly friendly and affectionate and started purring the second Ellen looked at her. She was content with a roof over her head, a warm bed, and a full belly.

When Ellen wrapped her in a blanket on her lap, her rumble instantly intensified.

“She reminded me of a cream puff and chocolate swirl tiramisu concoction.” With the help of the online community, she was lovingly named Carmella Cream Puff.

Carmella was too tiny to jump on Ellen’s lap on her own but quickly figured out how to climb the pet stairs to get there. She squeaked to demand cuddles and to be tucked in a blanket. Her purr engine never seemed to stop running.

Ellen cleaned off the dirt and grime from her coat and combed out all the mats and knots. Carmella came out from the spa day looking like a fluffy cloud.

With a fresh, clean look and a good appetite, the kitten started gaining weight, and her personality shone.

Whenever Ellen enters the room, Carmella launches herself out of bed, climbs down the pet stairs, and makes a beeline for her foster mom.

She purrs and chirps until she’s curled up comfortably on Ellen’s lap or shoulders – a little supervisor in the making.

With a renewed interest in toys and her surroundings, Carmella is starting to play and explore. She gets a burst of energy after feeding and pounces around like a floating cloud.

“She’s also enjoying a new scratcher. Most of the time, she spends sleeping or lying in my lap.”
