Two Newborn Kittens Rescued From Recycling Plant

Moments from being crushed by the machinery at a recycling plant, workers at the plant spotted the kittens and rescued them. The kittens were only a few days old and still had their eyes closed and their cords attached. It is believed that a feral cat gave birth to the kittens in a garbage bin which was then collected and taken to the plant. Thankfully, the babies were rescued in the nick of time. 

As reported by BBC, "[t]he pair of males are now being cared for by the RSPCA." The RSPCA official who collected them, told BBC: "These kittens were incredibly lucky to have been spotted by the eagle-eyed workers. If it wasn't for their quick actions they could have been killed by the machinery at the plant."

"Feral cats can be extremely resourceful and thrive in the wild. But, sometimes, mother cats can choose rather unusual places to give birth," he explained. "It may be that this pair's mum chose a bin for shelter before being separated from her babies when it was emptied."

He added: "They were extremely cold and quite weak but, thankfully, don't seem seriously affected by their ordeal so hopefully they should pull through and, eventually, we'll be able to find them loving new homes." We hope these cuties will be able to find a forever home where they will be treated amazingly as quickly as possible.

Cats Vs Plants: The Eternal Struggle

Something all cat owners can relate to... a universal truth: cats and their plants that never stood a chance. It's a hard lesson that some never seem to give up on. With each plant you buy and bring into your home, you're filled with peace and happiness. This plant will brighten up the room, it will add scenery to your garden, it can even provide you with food and your favorite tea ingredients. Too bad the chances of it surviving are so darn low. Why? Because cats will always find a way to either destroy your new plant baby, munch away on the juicy leaves, or just decide to live in the pot where it slowly, but surely, dies. 

It's an eternal struggle, this endless game we play. This is why cat owners can't have nice things:
