Gillian Rogers was just another face in the New York City subway crowd. However, fate had a heartwarming surprise in store for her, one that would soon touch hearts around the world.

Gillian couldn’t help but notice a small bundle of fur resting in the man’s lap on a subway. The kitten was wrapped in a towel, as the man fed her from a bottle. She was no larger than a teacup.
