Man Saves Kittens Found in His Truck and Goes Back for Their Mama Cat [View all]

Source: LoveMeow

A stucco worker saved four tiny kittens found in a bucket of their landscaping truck and later went back to get their mama cat, so they could be reunited in a safe place.

These four babies showed up at a construction site in Naples, Florida. "The momma cat put the kittens in a 5-gallon bucket that was sitting on a scaffolding trailer in North Fort Myers," Megan Sorbara, the president of Naples Cat Alliance, shared with Love Meow.

Unbeknownst to the worker who drove the truck for 38 miles to Naples, the kittens traveled along on the open trailer, in the bucket. When they unloaded the trailer at the Naples job site, they were surprised by what they found.

"They knew the mama cat had given birth, but they didn't know where the kittens were, until they found them in the bucket," Dominick Russotold Love Meow.

Knowing how fragile the fur babies were at such a young age, they tried to find help for the tiny felines.

The kittens were brought to the Naples Cat Alliance, free-roaming, no-kill shelter. "They were doing well when we got them. It was clear that the momma was doing a good job taking care of them, and that they had not been away from her for long," Megan told Love Meow.

Megan and the volunteers at Naples Cat Alliance knew right away that the kittens needed their mom, and it was crucial to reunite them. Saul, one of stucco workers knew the mother cat was friendly and assured them that he would find her.

Later that night, they received a call from Saul with great news - he got the mama cat in the carrier.

"We didn't want to wait until the next day," Dominic told Love Meow. "We drove up that night to get her, after getting his call."
