This story was originally posted on reddit. Firstly, I can’t believe how evil someone had to be to do something like this. But what’s more important is that miraculously, the animals inside were still alive.. Here are the photos of the dramatic rescue. Please SHARE this with others so NO ONE does anything like this EVER again!
My dad came home after work and told me he found a box with two kittens in it. I didn’t prepare myself for what we found.
He told me he found a box with two kittens after getting a complaint in this particular area about the roads being blocked with snow. We returned after work to see if the kittens had been picked up. This is what we saw.
We noticed that the box was placed under some branches. Presumably to keep the top on. The box itself is white, you can barely see it from the road.
When I peaked in, my heart broke. This kitten is obviously very sick and cold. There’s two dishes of food with a blanket.
But wait! There’s TWO cats.
To give you some perspective, the next two pictures show you the two views from the road where the cats were found. There’s literally nothing out here. No houses. No traffic. The only reason these cats were found is because my dad was driving by.
We picked up the box and brought the cats to our home. Here is the cat that was at the back of the box. He’s visibly more healthy than his little buddy
If you separate them, they meow continuously until they’re reunited. They’re terrified without eachother.
Unfortunately the cat at the front of the box looks very sick. He’s full of poop, smells like urine and has gunk around his eyes and nose.
So we gave them a bath! When they are wet, you can see how malnourished they are. They’re extremely skinny. They don’t really seem to know what to do with the tiny bowl of kitten food we put down.
So we wrapped them up and supplied them with body heat. Already we can see them perking up.
They are honestly the sweetest cats I’ve seen, and I have seen a lot of cats. This one curled up on my lap when I sat in the room with it.
She keeps rubbing up against anyone who will let her. She keeps purring like crazy.
Her friend is still pretty sick. We’re going to be taking them to the vets ASAP. For now we’re supplying them with body heat and love!
All this to say: if you’re going to get a cat, make sure you do research first. Cats are a furrever friend. They’re not disposable, despite what the person who abandoned these cats might think.
We don’t know how this story ends, we hope that these cats survive and live a long and healthy life. But the fact remains, if you adopt, or purchase an animal, please make sure you can take care of him or her (not it!) for life! They love you like the sun loves the earth, and they deserve the same from you in return.
