The life of a cat who had been living outside, enduring the hardships of sleeping on leaves and fending for himself, takes a remarkable turn when he crosses paths with compassionate individuals who offer him love and care. In their presence, he discovers a newfound sense of belonging and a transformed life.
Initially accustomed to a solitary and challenging existence, the cat’s encounter with people who genuinely care about his well-being opens up a world of possibilities. Their acts of kindness provide him with the love and attention he had longed for but never experienced.
Morpheus the cat
Morpheus, a long-haired orange cat, was found roaming the streets and sleeping on leaves for comfort. He was hungry, rough around the edges and clearly needed medical attention.
A few concerned neighbors provided food and water. They worked with Little Wanderers NYC to set out a plan to bring him to safety. The cat was shy and nervous around people but didn’t run away as if he knew he needed their help.
After years weathering the elements, Morpheus was finally off the streets and had a foster home awaiting his arrival.

The orange tabby was estimated to be six years old and had spent most of his years in the outdoors, running away from people until now. Morpheus could barely open his eyes due to an abnormality of the eyelids, and had been dealing with it his whole life.
“He was born with a condition called eyelid entropion in which part of his eyelid was folded in towards his eyeball, in both eyes,” Little Wanderers NYC shared with Love Meow.
“This folded eyelid scratched and irritated the surface of both of his eyes, and he required ophthalmic surgery to repair the condition. Morpheus was half blind and FIV positive, but this boy is a survivor and was ready for rescue.”
An experienced foster volunteer took him on and gave him a quiet space to decompress.
