SAN DIEGO (April 17, 2014) A cable company employee in San Diego who was expecting a shipment of fiberglass equipment got a shock when he opened the box and discovered two newborn kittens clinging to life inside.
The kittens were recovering after they were accidentally shipped by truck from the Los Angeles area to a Cox Communications office in San Diego.
After finding the tiny black cats, the Cox warehouse worker called his nephew, who works for the Humane Society in San Diego.
The kittens were so young they still had their umbilical cords attached.
Humane Society nurse Jenny Bonomini says it's likely the mother put her newborn babies in what she thought was a safe spot, the cardboard box.
Bonomini says the kittens, named Mouse and Wifi, are happy and putting on weight.
