This tar-covered kitty may have been saved off of the side of the road but she's not completely out of the woods yet.

A man was along 385 in Athens, NY when he found a tiny kitty covered in tar yesterday. Thankfully, he brought her to a nearby animal hospital, Animalkind in Hudson, and according to News10, "are working nonstop to nurse [the] baby kitten back to health."

The kitten was all alone and her limbs were stuck together because of the tar, the poor kitty couldn't move, she could only cry. Now, that she's at Animalkind, they've removed the tar and are still regulating her temperature with a hair dryer.

Now, before you curse the previous owner (which is what I did when I originally read this story), News10 is saying that the staff doesn't suspect any abuse, instead that she was the runt of the litter and somehow got left behind and covered in asphault. Though they've gotten rid of the tar, the kitty is so young and has been under so much stress already, so  she only has a 50/50 chance for survival.

Soon, she will most likely be moved to another facility, one with the monetary capability to take care of her from here since Animalkind is a nonprofit.
