Kittens Found in Abandoned Car Towed to Auto Repair Shop

Staff at a New Jersey auto repair shop are hand feeding three little kittens who came in with an abandoned car towed to the garage. The trio were found in the back seat of the car towed to the shop from somewhere in New York state this week.

Automotive technician Mohamad Tanta said he “heard a small sound” coming from the black Volkswagen the day after it was brought to the garage. He found two of the newborns on the back seat, and the third on the floor under some debris.

Owner Bashar Orfali said the kittens — two brothers and their sister — probably hadn’t eaten for a day or so.

“They were very weak, they couldn’t even stand,” said office manager Karen Rideg. “They were very limp and lifeless.”

Ms. Rideg told an NBC 4 news crew she thinks the kittens’ mother “probably went to get food for herself or something, and when she came back, the whole vehicle was gone.”

Ms. Rideg got bottles and kitten formula at the local PetSmart, and the kittens are fed every two hours. The babies’ eyes have opened, they’re walking, and their personalities are beginning to show.

There have been several offers to adopt the kittens, but Mr. Orfali wants to make sure the kittens remain together and expects to keep them all and give them a home at the shop, where they will get plenty of attention from staff and customers alike.
