HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – So many things might have gone wrong for six kittens after being thrown in a dumpster and left for dead. But these particular kittens surely used a few of their nine lives and survived the odds.
The kittens were found after a Royal Carting roll off container was brought back to the yard with a container filled with wood. and debris in the early morning hours on May 17th,
The driver backed up to the unloading area of the yard and the hydraulic system raised the container so that all of its contents could be flushed out the back, crashing to the concrete.
Once the contents were emptied, the yard workers heard the frantic sounds of kittens crying. They quickly went to work, carefully peeling off all of the pieces of wood from the pile. When they reached close to the very bottom they found six domestic short hair kittens no more than six or seven weeks old.
Two of the Royal Carting employees took three of the cats and another woman took the other three.
All kittens survived the entire ride and the dumping, with just one kitten who suffered a broken front paw.
