Robert Williams and his Hartford, CT public works department coworkers saved three little lives while making trash route this morning. Robert felt something moving inside a Nike shoe box and dropped the box, thinking there was a rat inside. He decided to investgate and opened the box, finding three kittens inside.
The kittens, determined to be about 4 weeks old, were taken to the New England Veterinary Center in Windsor, where staff say they are doing fine, though they will need to stay for a couple of weeks while being treated for respiratory conditions. The kittens will be available for adoption through Animal Friends of Connecticut in West Hartford in 2 to 3 weeks.
