Santa Clarita Man Saves & Cares For 6 Newborn Kittens

A litter of newborn kittens were left abandoned in a dumpster but saved by a Santa Clarita man who heard the kittens cries and came to the rescue.

0817_news_kittens_dw_02_copy“I got there around noon. I could hear them meowing from the dumpster,” said Richard Kerr, founder of Citizens for Sheltered Animals.

He took the kittens in and immediately started fostering. Baby kittens require feeding and caring around the clock.

“I’ve been sleeping on the couch pretty much every night,” he said.

“And then when I wake up my first thought is, ‘Kittens!'”

“These guys have really turned a corner. That first day it looked like some of them might not make it.

” Now all the kittens are growing bigger and stronger.

“The best part is that two weeks from now they’ll be flying all over the house,” Kerr added, as the little bottle fed kitten meowed loudly in his hand.

    What a great ending to a sad story. I hope they find the mom cat and get her away from the creeps that dumped these precious babies. They will probably do it again because they won’t bother to have her spayed. It is beyond my comprehension how someone could be so evil and it is so nice to see someone be so compassionate. Thank you.
