On July 18, 2017, a little girl found a starving kitten in a Los Angeles backyard. The fluffy little gray and white kitten came out of the bushes, seeking help. It was starving, so weak it couldn't walk straight.
Its mother had either abandoned it or died.
The girl brought the kitten to Sandra Lee, who rescues and fosters cats. Sandra took it immediately to a veterinarian, even though she didn't expect the poor little kitten to live.
The kitten, a little girl Sandra named Livvie, was just skin and bones. The vet said that she'd been so hungry that she was eating everything she could find. The garbage had poisoned Livvie so badly that she was shaking.
As Sandra nursed her back to health, Livvie began to recover. At first, she couldn't even poop without help, so Sandra started a Help LivvieLive Poop fund. Finally, three weeks later, Livvie was able to poop in a box on her own.
Livvie wouldn't have survived for much longer on her own if she hadn't sought help from the little girl who found her. And she probably would have been put down if taken to a shelter because she required so much help. But she thrived in Sandra's care and began to grow like a weed. She had a cute, raspy meow that made her a hit on social media.
Livvie was finally adopted in January 2018.
