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.

    That is such an adorable kitty baby! This story reminds me of when they were rebuilding the McDonald’s in our little town and construction workers came upon a tiny kitten trapped in a sewer pipe. 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.

    When my kids were little they came to me in the kitchen and said ” mommy we hear kitties.” I walked out back to find a bag tied up in the trash can down the alley with 6 kittens in it. We took them in but not all survived. People are cruel. Maybe you should call the kitten Twinkie.

    Some one put a litter of kittens in a paper bag then put one the other way so the kittens couldn’t get out and left them at the end of my long driveway and the kittens chewed the one end of on of the sacks and they came running up to my house, I went to the paper sack and there was still 1 more in it all curled up and it meowed at me when I looked inside . There were 4 of them altogether

    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.

    What kind of a*s hole would put kittens in a dumpster? 🙁

  533. Reply

    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).
