This Man Dug For Hours To Save Kittens Dumped In Trash

It’s monstrous enough to throw a litter of kittens into a dumpster, but it’s just a cruel twist of fate for a pile of wood to be thrown on top of them. It sounds like a tear-jerking scene worthy of a Lifetime movie, but this really happened to a real litter of kittens. Lucky for the kittens (and animal lovers/people with souls everywhere), Cliff, real-life superhero, came to the rescue.

According to Bored Panda, Cliff was walking along when he heard the sound of a kitten crying in a nearby dumpster. He sprang into action to rescue the kitten — and all of her siblings, because Cliff quickly realized there were several kittens trapped under the wood.

“They got dumped in the dumpster, then there was wood dumped on top,” Cliff told Love Meow. This hero of a human proceeded to spend seven hours carefully digging the kittens out.

Cliff’s hard work paid off. A Springfield, Missouri-based rescue organization called Watching Over Whiskers took the kittens in and got them healthy. They even recruited a rescued cat named Roxy to be the kittens’ surrogate mother.

All of the kittens have been placed in loving foster homes, all thanks to Cliff.
