He Drove 50 Miles With This Bucket In His Truck Bed. But Then He Noticed What Was Inside…

It’s kitten season in Florida, which means animal rescues such as Naples Cat Alliance (NCA) are filled with furry orphaned felines. And when the kittens are without their mother, it’s a lot of work for the staff to hand raise them themselves. They are brought new kittens all the time, but this time, it was a sad case.

A man brought in kittens that their mother left in a bucket on the back of his landscaping truck. He drove more than 50 miles away to Naples from Fort Myers, without knowing the kittens were there. Luckily, they did not fall off; and more importantly, it’s a good thing it didn’t rain or else they would have drowned.

The kittens were safe at the Naples Cat Alliance, but there mother was still somewhere out there. Amazingly enough, finding her wasn’t as hard as you’d think. The workers back in Fort Myers knew of a friendly stray cat who was always in the area. Volunteers made the drive from Naples to Fort Myers to pick up the mama cat.

“When we brought her in, she started meowing,” Megan Sorbara, volunteer at NCA, told The Dodo. “And the kittens, all four of them, went nuts. They hadn’t seen her. They just heard her meow.”

The mother cat was finally reunited with her babies and inspected each one before she began to nurse them. Once the kittens are old enough, they’ll be put up for adoption. As for the mother, NSA has decided to keep her!
