Agents of the Butler County Bomb Unit were relieved Thursday when they discovered that a suspicious bag they were about to investigate had a momma cat and her 6 newborn kittens inside.
“There was a momma cat and her 6 one day old babies in a bag,” the Sheriff’s Office said adding that the package was abandoned at a church.
There was a note left with the feline family reading: “Sprinkles went into labor yesterday 2/17.”
Authorities assured that Sprinkles and her kitten are receiving the care they need after being transported to the Animal Friends Shelter.
“Momma and babies are warm, cozy, and fed,” the statement added. “Sprinkles and her newborns were immediately brought to Animal Friends for care late Thursday afternoon.”
The shelter posted photos of the new residents taking showers and promised to share more updates about Sprinkles’ family as it thrives during the upcoming weeks.
“Sprinkles, purring throughout it all, receiving her vaccines and blood test and appears to be in good health. She’s doing a fantastic job nursing and caring for her babies, and all 7 will be placed with their foster family this afternoon.”
