About 30 miles into his bike trek, which placed him near a local airport, Nevres stopped for a moment to watch some passing planes. It was then that his ears were struck by the sound of an animal in distress. The tiny creature had clearly been desperate for someone to come along.
"I looked around and saw an adorable tabby kitten running towards me, crying," Nevres wrote on his blog. "She was around 4 weeks old and was looking very hungry."
Considering that he was "in the middle of nowhere," Nevres knew that the kitten's chances were slim if left all alone.
"I couldn’t leave her there," Nevres wrote. "I put her in my jersey, then started pedaling slowly."
Here's video of that lifesaving journey:
