“They could so easily have been crushed …”
Recently, employees at a wholesale company in Liverpool called Makro heard an unusual sound coming from their cardboard compressor. Deep inside a recycling container, tiny meows pleaded for help. Immediately, the staff knew something was wrong.
The company quickly contacted the RSPCA, who rushed over to help. After some investigating, RSPCA inspector Vicki Brooks found a tiny hole at one end of the shipping container — with a mama cat’s face peeking out. She could hear the mom’s kitten crying out for help somewhere behind her. It seemed that the mama cat had gone into the container to give birth and ended up trapped as more cardboard was piled in. They had likely been trapped there for days without food or water.
