Kittens Found In Dumpster By Construction Workers

Construction workers in Des Moines, Iowa were throwing chunks of broken up cement into a dumpster when they heard something that made them stop. Hearing mews coming from inside the dumpster, they found three kittens inside. These big macho men rushed these tiny little kittens to the Animal Rescue League. Unfortunately, two of them didn’t make it, but this little one did!

Kitten Saved by Workers

Tom Colvin of the Animal Rescue League said “it was no accident the kittens were in the dumpster.” A commenter suggested that the mama cat may have chosen the dumpster as a place to have her kittens, or maybe she moved them there, and later either the dumpster was moved or the lid was shut, and she couldn’t get to them.

Although I would feel so bad for the mama cat, as I’m sure you would, I hope that is what happened, rather than someone just tossing these precious little babies in the trash.

No word on who might adopt this adorable little furball. What should we name him?

    a name how about Connie for the construction workers who found him. hopefully the mother had found a warm spot to have them and the construction workers found them before she got back from looking for food, I would hate to think some heartless bastard threw them away.

    Poor little thing! My son found a pregnant mama kitty in a cat carrier dumping along Highway 50. He brought it home and we are fostering her and the 6 kittens until they are 8 weeks old.

    My daughter had a box dropped off at her place of work, and when it meowed she naturally called Mom. None of the shelters were accepting animals, so Lucky became our addition to the brood. We also had a pregnant mama thrown out of a moving car that I was never able to domesticate or catch and spay, and when she was dying she brought me her last litter which I still have 3,, one is out side.

They rushed it to the local vet who nursed it back to health. That kitten found a forever home when it got old enough and healthy enough to be released from the vet.

    A human newborn was found in some loose earth outside a nursing home here in West Michigan. While I think it’s bad to abandon animals to their death, I think it is HORRENDOUS to kill a child, especially when it can be dropped off at a fire station with no repercussions.

    Yes, I have caught many feral cats too, in a humane trap, and taken them to the county animal shelter. They do not kill them if they are healthy. Instead, they spay or neuter them, give them their rabies, test them for feline leukemia and aids. If they are all ok, the re-release them after clipping their ear to the neighborhood they came from. It is funny, how after a few weeks, they are back LOL like magic.

    I had a feral female cat coming to my door about 3 yrs. ago, and with her was a 2/3 month old Siamese/mix. After a couple of weeks, I brought the kiiten in and got him fixed and kept him (named him baby Blu). 2 months later mom had kittens and someone had given her a box to have them in, but after 3/4 days, my husband heard mewing over the wall and when I went to see, the box that she had her babies in was thrown against the wall. There were 2 kittens in it,and only 1 survived. I kept that one. and then I found momma under a bush with the only other one that survived the 4th one was dead from opossum attack. So I brought mom and 2 babies in and gave them their own room. (named babies Precious and Patches) still have them (fixed). Could catch mom fast enough she then proceeded in coming home pregnant a 3rd time, and gave me 5 more beautiful kittens. All fixed (including mom). To this day I have 8 beautiful cats and momma. I also feed stray cats in the neighborhood. I just love cats (and all other animals).

    My cat, Esther, was the only surviving member of a litter of 6 preweaned kittens that were thrown into a trash can. She is now 15 years old, and a gorgeous white and grey spoiled brat,but she deserves the pampering.

    Lucky. Poor little guy

  692. Oscar the grouch lives in a trash can on Sesame Street. Oscar would be a good name. Bluto from the Popeye cartoon sould also be good since he was a tough guy like this little fellow.
