Baby Kittens Found Inside An Industrial Dumpster

A litter of newborn kittens with their umbilical cords attached were found in a dumpster and rescued by staff at an office on the property.

The kittens were found inside an industrial-sized dumpster behind the offices of Lakeshore Learning Materials in Carson, California.

A co-worker heard a tiny squeak while walking to her car at night and she found five baby kittens with their umbilical cords still attached.

She gathered the kittens into a cardboard box with a towel to keep them warm.

One of the kittens did not survive and the mother cat did not show up. In the morning, another baby kitten was found on-site.

One worker at the company knew how to bottle feed. She took the kittens into her cubicle and bottle fed and wiped their bottoms every 2 to 3 hours during the work day.

The kittens were barely 2 days old and at that age they need assistance eating and going to the bathroom.

By the end of the day, everyone in the office knew about the kittens and they wanted to help. They pitched in money, took care of the kittens outside of work, and found foster homes for all of the kittens.

Cats at the Studios rescue took the kittens in and gave the babies their full love and attention.

Every day, the kittens are growing stronger. They have taken to the bottle very well and their personalities are shining bright!

It means a lot to save such fragile lives and it truly has given these kittens the second chance they deserve.

A special thank-you goes to Lakeshore Learning Materials and Cats at the Studios for their kindness and generosity.
