Two very very young kittens were shipped from Hollywood to San Diego in a box containing fiberglass equipment, ABC News reports. Luckily, they made it alive and were surrendered to a humane society. But how could anyone pack the box without noticing them? Read more to find out.

Kittens shipped with fiberglass equipment by mistake


JC Collins, a Cox Communications employee at the company’s Chula Vista, Calif., office is the man who found the kittens in the box. He explains that the minute he saw them he knew they were newborns. They still had their umbilical cords attached. Collins immediately called his nephew who was an investigator at the San Diego Humane Society.

The kittens were handed over to nurse Jenny Bonomini from the Humane Society. “Mouse” and “Wifi” as they were appropriately named, benefit from around-the-clock nursery. The shelter is one of the few in the country to have this kind of care service for cats. “They’re fat and happy”, the nurse said.

You must be wondering “how did the two kittens wound up in the box, right?” Well, the answer is…by mistake. “What we think happened was the mom had the babies and she put them in a safe spot…and she left”, nurse Bonomini explained. So somebody boxed them up and shipped them 126 miles away. “They were very, very lucky that they didn’t fall out of it in transport or when we were unloading the truck”, said Collins.
