Box of newborn kittens accidentally shipped from L.A. to San Diego

Two newborn kittens were accidentally shipped from Los Angeles to San Diego in small black boxes this week.

The kittens were discovered with their umbilical cords still attached by Cox cable company employees in Chula Vista as part of a shipment of fiberglass equipment, according to 10 News in San Diego.

 "They were very, very lucky that they didn’t fall out of it in transport or when we were unloading the truck,” Cox employee JC Collins told the station.

The Humane Society’s local chapter was called to care for the kittens.


Officials don’t know how the kittens got into the boxes, or how the boxes got into the shipping truck.
