A kitten found near death in an Albuquerque city dumpster is ready to be adopted by a welcoming family.

Tuffy” was found more than a week ago in a dumpster near 63rd and Central, covered in a white paint-like material, police said. He was unable to open his eyes.

Another kitten was also thrown in the dumpster, but it did not survive.

Donna Smith has been nursing Tuffy back to health.

“He’s a miracle kitten. He’s active. He has a voracious appetite. He gets along great with my dog,” Smith said.
