Pueblo, Colorado – A feline family was rescued from a potentially deadly situation last week thanks to observant PetSmart employees who alerted the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR). According to the animal welfare agency, the employees had been feeding the mother cat and noticed that her kittens were starting to play in the trash compactor.
The shelter said:
That’s no place for any kitty family, so our Pueblo Wellness team jumped into action. They set a trap for momma and her babies, and within half a day, the entire family was humanely trapped and brought to HSPPR for safe keeping!
The shelter commended the PetSmart employees, writing:
Because the PetSmart team kept a careful eye on these guys, they were all relatively healthy. However, the kittens were a little hissy, so we placed them in a foster home for some socialization and snuggles. As for momma, she’s was adopted into her new family this week!
