Five adorable kittens stowed away on a truck that traveled 500 miles before the kittens were discovered aboard.
A work crew traveled from Hayward, California to San Diego hauling steel beams for a medical office and were astonished ‘when they heard meows coming from a 60 -foot steel column,’ animal rescue workers in San Diego wrote.
Construction workers tried to lure the kittens out with food, but when that did not work, they just tipped the column and let the kittens come tumbling out.
The San Diego Humane Society, which has taken the kittens, wrote: ‘Five kittens slid out, and the construction workers called San Diego Humane Society for help. Officers picked up the one-week-old kittens and transferred them to the SDHS Kitten Nursery for 24-hour care.’
The kittens are now approximately one-month-old and have been named after construction tools: Crowbar, Rebar, Chisel, Jackhammer, and Piper.
Rescue workers said they are gaining weight and doing well in foster care. They will be available for adoption once they are two months old.
