Abandoned NY-baby story saves 2 cats

BEAVERTON, Ore. — Two cats could have suffocated Saturday inside a Rubbermaid container left in a dumpster in Beaverton, Ore. Instead, they were found by a PetSmart employee.

According to the Cat Adoption Team in Sherwood, the employee found the two female cats Saturday morning — on top of the trash inside the dumpster behind 8825 Southwest Cascade Avenue. They were in what is being described as a “nearly new, sealed blue plastic tub,” without ventilation holes.

“[T]he employee who found the young cats was 'taught by his mother to always look in a closed container, if he found one,'” according to a Cat Adoption Team news release. “Apparently this employee grew up in New York and years ago a news story about a baby abandoned in a similar way struck a cord with his mother.”

The worker says the lesson stuck.

One of the cats is a brown tabby and could be pregnant, and about 1 years old. The other is an orange tabby, likely 2 to 3 years old and already spayed.

*Thanks god* he was taught that and honored the teaching! May he be blessed! and may these treasured cats find the loving, permanent, protective home they — and all cats — deserve. The devils who did this will absolutely be dealt with in due time, if not on this earth, certainly in the time to come. They are already soulless.

I’m so glad these poor kitties were rescued by a kindhearted person who took the time to care 🙂
