RALEIGH, N.C.(WNCN) – A public utilities crew in Raleigh is used to fixing water main breaks in the city, but, earlier this week, they answered a different kind of call. This one came in the form of “meows!”
A worker heard three kittens crying and discovered them in the under carriage of an excavator.
A crew member told CBS North Carolina they think mother cat hid the kittens in the piece of equipment at their shop off the Beltline.
Workers didn’t hear the kittens until they started working near Cameron Village.
They tried to find the kitten’s mother, but couldn’t. The kittens are doing well and are at a shelter.
