We have kittens! That is, the place where I work has kittens. These cuties appeared in the shipping area of our company at the end of July. We first saw them darting between pallets outside. The next morning five kittens were in this trash can. I can’t imagine how they got there other than their mom moved them. The can was too high for them to get in or out on their own.
The next Monday there were seven (!) kittens in a larger trash can outside. It still must have been mom, although we’ve never seen her. They’re feral but still so cute, as all kittens are. A few days later one of our temp workers took three of them home, cleaned them up and hopes his mom will let him keep them. So we’re down to four. The picture above is one of the few I got of all seven of them by putting out a tray of food.
Since then we’ve gotten used to them hanging around and they’ve gotten used to us and to the handouts… the reason they’re still hanging around. They’re growing. They hide and play in the stacks of pallets and other stuff at the back of our parking lot. One employee has named each kitten, although the only one I know for sure at this point is Stitch, so named because he/she got into the stitcher in our plant and had to be rescued.
