Jennifer and Jim Yovino were walking together in downtown Fresno when they heard cries for help coming from the direction of a nearby dumpster, located in an alley behind a locked metal gate.

People nearby came to help, bringing tools to pry the gate open. Once the gate was opened, they were able to pull the kitten out and place him in the couple’s arms. Jennifer and Jim wrapped the precious kitty in a t-shirt and held him close to comfort him. Their soothing touch soon had the kitten, whom they named Fulton, purring with contentment.

Fulton was taken in by  The Cat House on the Kings in Parlier, California. He was soon placed in a foster home, where he can play and cuddle with other kittens as he awaits his forever home!
