Baby Yankee was found all alone on a construction site, barely alive, curled up in a ball to warm herself up.
Site workers had heard her cries the day before and began searching for her.
When they found her the harsh winter cold had left her defenseless and she was on the verge of freezing to death.
One of the men tried to feed the poor thing, but she was so feeble that she could hardly move, let alone eat.
So he contacted the Puppy Kitty NYCity animal rescue for help.
Meagan got the call and rushed to the scene to pick her up, she knew time was of the essence and she had to act quickly.
Baby Yankee was so cold and weak that she hardly noticed she was being rescued.
Meagan rushed her to the car and placed her on a heating pad. Before long she began to relax as the warmth of the pad surged through her body.
It was still touch and go and at one point she became listless. Meagan was worried that she might not make it.
But this tabby girl was a fighter and despite her fragile state, she managed to hold on.
The veterinary team swiftly gave her fluids to rehydrate her and made sure she stayed warm throughout the process.
Thanks to round-the-clock care, the little tabby’s condition started to improve.
