Adorable Kittens Not-So-Adorably Shipped in the Mail

Illustration for article titled Adorable Kittens Not-So-Adorably Shipped in the Mail

A pair of kittens were accidentally boxed and mailed more than 130 miles this week.

The two kittens (who still had their umbilical cords attached) were shipped in a box via truck from Los Angeles to a Cox Communications office in Chula Vista, California. A worker who unwrapped the best mail surprise ever called his nephew who just so happens to work for the San Diego County Humane Society.

Workers at the Humane Society society stepped in to help care for the rescued kittens, according to ABC 10:

[Jenny Bonomini, a nurse at the San Diego Humane Society] has been helping care for the black kittens and helped name them Mouse and Wifi."What we think happened was the mom had the babies and she put them in a safe spot … and she left. Then they got boxed up and they got shipped."San Diego Humane Society spokeswoman Kelli Schry said, "We're actually one of the only around-the-clock kitten nurseries in the country. Most shelters don't have the resources to provide around-the-clock care that kittens need."


Mouse and Wifi! The pair will stay at the nursery for a few more weeks, getting 24-hour-care and then they will be fostered until they are about eight weeks old. After that, they'll be adopted out to a permanent forever home.

I saw this story yesterday, but the headline wasn't so unenthusiastic about surprise kittens so I ordered a bunch of things from Amazon in the hopes some would come with surprise kittens but due to your superior headline I feel I may have gotten a bit ahead of myself and that perhaps surprise kittens aren't the great idea I thought they were.
