Six weeks ago, a worker in a metal plant (in Lowell, Arkansas) heard tiny meows coming from one of their packaging boxes high on a shelf.
They went to investigate and found a tiny kitten whose eyes hadn’t even opened. She was named Tigre.
“They heard her crying and went up and got her down. They brought her to the front desk and asked the admin to call/find someone to take care of her,” Lynsi, employee of Central States Manufacturing, told Love Meow.
“She was the only one, and it is suspected that the momma was moving her kittens and got scared off by the loud machines, leaving Tigre.”
At the time, Nanette was at the front desk when the kitten was brought to her. Tigre was about a week and a half old. Since they weren’t able to find the mother cat, she needed round-the-clock bottle feeding.
“Nanette already has a houseful of cats and wasn’t able to take on another but she planned to bottle raise her and adopt her out until later that day, when I found out there was a kitten in need,” Lynsi told Love Meow.
“I couldn’t resist her sweetness. I was surprised no one had claimed her yet but I didn’t hesitate. My husband is a huge cat lover and I knew he would be happy!”
After getting Tigre some food in her belly, the tabby girl started kneading away with her tiny paws and then drifted off in Lynsi’s arms.
