SAN DIEGO, CALIF. — Five kittens that stowed away on a 400-mile San Diego trip are seeking new homes.
The San Diego Humane Society says the kittens wound up inside a 60-foot steel column trucked from Hayward in the San Francisco Bay Area to San Diego.
On April 24, construction workers building new Kaiser Permanente medical offices heard meows from the column. They tilted it and the week-old kittens slid out. It’s unclear whether they came aboard in Hayward or somewhere along the route.
The kittens are in foster care and will be ready for adoption in a couple of months. They’ve been given the names: Crowbar, Rebar, Chisel, Jackhammer and Piper.
