Two tiny black kittens arrived at a cable provider’s office in Chula Vista, Calif., this week, tucked inside a box of fiberglass packaging.
The kittens were so young, they still had their umbilical cords attached, according to the Cox Communications worker who found them. The small cats had survived a trip from Los Angeles to the San Diego-area warehouse.
According to reports, 34-year veteran employee J.C. Collins opened a routine shipment of fiberglass equipment and to his surprise found the mewing, pawing kittens. Collins called a family member who works with the San Diego Humane Society for help.
The kittens, nicknamed Mouse and Wifi, are living in a nursery at the humane society. Workers there speculated that the kittens’ mother must have tucked them away in a safe spot, the box which eventually was packed up and sent to the Cox warehouse.
Caretakers say the kittens are now “fat and happy.” When they reach 8 weeks of age, they’ll be spayed/neutered and put up for adoption.
