A tiny kitten was found in the desert panting for help. A young woman couldn't believe what she saw as she drove by. She stopped her car and ran to the kitten…

Jen G. shares the story with Love Meow:

About a year and a half ago, it was the middle of the summer here (about 120 degrees F. that day) in the Mohave Desert. I was driving under an underpass when something caught my eye on the side of the road. I stopped, left my car running, door open and ran over to see what it was.

It was a tiny kitten laying on her side. I said "how did you get here little monster?" She appeared passed out but panting. Without touching her I looked to see if she had any visible injuries, I was scared to move her if she was hurt but she would surely die in the heat if I didn't.

A lady (I wish I had gotten her name) pulled around my car and got out to see if I was ok and saw what I was doing. She ran to her car and brought me a bottle of water and a towel. I wet my hands and and rubbed the kittens face and back.

I filled the cap with water and held it to her nose and she drank right away. I picked her up and put her in the passenger side of my car, which thankfully wasn't stolen! Off we went to the vet. Good news! Except a cut on her bottom lip and being badly over heated she was fine! I was given free of charge some kitten formula and food to mash into a paste.

When we arrived home I settled her into a small cool but cozy space with a small litter box, water and food. I closed the door and left her to relax because I was sure she was stressed. My other kitty, Princess Buttercup was quite curious about this little monster invading her space!

After about an hour I peeked in on her. She had peed and pooped in the litter and had eaten some food. I knew right then and there she was going to be just fine.

I picked her up and called her Monzie.

Monzie began to thrive in her new home!

As she grew her colors started to change, almost on a daily basis, she was darkening.

I may have rescued her but she rescued me too. Everyday she brings joy and laughter to myself as well as my room mate and best friend Cindy
