A city recycling truck driver has rescued his second kitten from the back of his truck in less than a year.

City of Peoria, Arizona recycling truck driver Angelo Almendarez rescued a little orange tabby kitten on Friday when he heard meows coming from the back of his truck while collecting containers along  his route.

The 2-3 week old baby is being bottle fed and has been adopted by an employee of the city’s Streets Division, a city spokeswoman said.
