Cliff heard meowing coming from a pile of wood in the dumpster about a month ago. He noticed a helpless kitten clinging to fragments of wood and squeaking a few times. He soon noticed that there were multiple kittens.
Cliff said that, “They got placed in the dumpster, then there was wood dumped on top.”
To save the abandoned kittens, he spent hours crawling through mounds of wood and steel. Their eyes had only opened because they were so young.
He first discovered the kittens’ whereabouts before carefully digging through the piles to retrieve them. He got all the kittens after hours and hours of digging, but one died.
Watching Over Whiskers explained, “Mom chose a large box to give birth in, and kittens were tossed in the dumpster.”
Cliff discovered the kittens here.
Cliff rescued a little gray kitten from a mound of wood shavings. He sat the pet on his lap and gave it some much-needed attention.
To keep warm, he put a tiny kitten in his pocket and went looking for more.
He got all the kittens out of the dumpster after hours of rummaging.
The kittens were so little that they would require care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Cliff and his family began looking for assistance, and after much research, one rescue group reacted with open arms and promised to help.
The kittens were taken in by the nice people at Watching Over Whiskers in Springfield, Missouri. Baths, full bellies, and a warm bed awaited the babies.
They spilled milk all over each other because they were so hungry, according to the rescue organisation.
The rainbow bridge was crossed by one of the gray babies. The little friend put up a valiant fight.
Because two of the kittens are younger, Roxy, a lovely rescue mama, is providing them with milk and lots of love.
Despite a rocky start, these kittens are currently doing well in their foster home. Their lives have been turned around thanks to the goodness of their savior and the unconditional love of their caregivers and surrogate mother.
They are now learning to explore and are looking forward to their new life experiences.
