Mews and Nips: Kittens Shipped with Computer Parts Recover in Kitten Nursery


Two newborn kittens are recovering at the San Diego Humane Society after they were accidentally packed into a cardboard box in Los Angeles and shipped to a cable company in San Diego. The Cox Communications employee who discovered the kittens when he opened the box contacted the humane society, where they now receive constant attention and round the clock feeding at the humane society’s 24 hour nursery. It’s not clear how the kittens got into the box. Most likely, the mother was looking for a safe place to keep the kittens and put them in the box.  The names of the two kittens? Mouse and Wifi. Read the full story on NBC News.

If you missed any of the stories featured on The Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Monday, we told you about polycystic kidney disease, on Tuesday, Allegra and Ruby reviewed the Scratch Lounge, on Wednesday, we took a closer look at Weruva cat food, and on Friday, we told you everything you need to know about hairballs, and why they are not a normal part of a cat’s life. And don’t forget to enter our giveaway for a Cat Crib kitty hammock!

Interactive cat toys are designed for humans to play with cats. The cats in today’s video had a different idea!  (Editor’s Note: I do not recommend allowing cats to play with fishing pole type toys unsupervised. The string may become a choking hazard.)


Have a great weekend

    Oh, those poor babies! I can’t imagine the terror they experienced or how frantic the mama was when she came back for them. Glad to hear they’re in good hands though!

    I’m so happy the little darlings are going to be okay. What a trip!
