At only 4-weeks-old, this calico was left outside an office, alone and scared. They weren't sure that she would make it through the weekend, but after one woman meets her, she knew she had to do whatever it took to save her.

"One of my coworkers found her outside of my office on April 7. I'm the resident cat lady so they called me to come down and see her," reddit user hrtofdixie said. "She was skin and bones, covered in briars and brambles from being in the bushes and her eyes were crusted shut from an infection."

As soon as she picked up little Finley, she started to purr with all her might. She only weighed half a pound, and her temperature was dangerously low, she she immediately took her to the vet.

"We got some ointment for her crusty eyes, a sign of infection, and she was prescribed a pretty healthy dose of antibiotics."

After taking her home, she put together a makeshift bed using a large storage tub with a heading pad inside for the little kitten to rest in.  

"I was up with her every few hours making sure she was ok. She didn't eat very well at first, probably just trying to rest. The vet gave her a 50/50 shot of making it through the weekend, but I had to at least try."

That's when her fortunes changed thanks to the help of the kind stranger.
