Two trash cleaners could have done something terrible, throwing a bag of little kittens into their car. The baby was beeping loud, and it was the only thing that allowed people to find it.
It happened on a very ordinary morning. John and William, cleaners from New York, were on their way to work.
They were throwing garbage bags into their truck when a meow came from one of the bags. William did not immediately understand what was happening, he hoped that the toy was making strange sounds. But it wasn’t like that.
The meowing became louder and louder. Now the garbage collectors were sure that a live kitten was sitting in one of the bags. They opened the package and took it out. The kid was scared, its heart was pounding very hard. The men realized that the cat was in shock.
Probably, someone just put the kitten in a bag and left it on the side of the road. The kid was very lucky that the cleaners found it before they put it under the press. The men spent a long time digging through the trash to make sure there were no more animals there.
The kitten was shocked but glad that it was still rescued. The garbage cleaners put it in a box, but the baby kept getting out of it, complicating its transportation.
John took the kitten in his arms and hugged it to calm it down. Then the baby began to behave quieter.
The men calmed the animal until it reached the veterinarian. They called the baby «Jumper» because it was so active and fast. Plus, that’s what the back of the garbage truck was called. So John and William thought it was perfect.
The attitude of these people has greatly helped the kitten in dealing with this terrible event.
The men turned to the animal welfare organization, which took the kitten into their custody. The baby quickly got all the help it needed and was put into temporary care with people who cared.
Right now, Jumper’s doing well. He’s got a great temporary home where the baby can safely go into rehab. The doctors say the kitten will be fully recovered very soon.
William says he and John did what any reasonable person would do.
The trash cleaners even visited their little buddy’s temporary home to bring the kitty’s bunk and stuff. They want the baby to have everything while they’re looking for the real owners.
