A young woman found a kitten on the side of the road while she was biking to work.

"I though she was dead as she was cold and covered in fly eggs, but then she took a breath!"

"I happened to see her out of the corner of my eye. I stopped and picked her up, and I thought she was dead. She started meowing when I pinched her paw a little to see if I could get a response," reddit user Old_Donkey_Teeth told Love Meow.

That was the moment she saw hope. She took the tiny kitten home, warmed her up slowly, cleaned out all the fly eggs and gave her food that she desperately needed.

"The vet said she was 1/3 the normal weight for a kitten her (approximate) age. In short, she had fleas, intestinal worms, maggots that had burrowed into her skin, and she was severely malnourished. This kitty had her work cut out for her."

The rescuer made a custom carrier for the kitten so she could safely and comfortably transport the fur baby to work by bike where she continued to care for the kitten around the clock.

"She loved the short ride to her 'job' where she ate, slept, and looked cute all day."

All grown up now!

"Nowadays she has issues with depth perception and some 'eccentricities' (to put it nicely), but she is otherwise very healthy. She is a petite girl weighing in at 4.9 lbs fully grown," Trinket's rescuer told Love Meow.
