Bomb Squad Called To Suspicious Bag Only To Find Litter Of Kittens
A US sheriff's department's bomb squad were called out to a suspicious bag, only to discover it was full of adorable new-born kittens. So a pretty good result, really.
The bomb unit from the Butler County Sheriff's Office in Ohio went out to reports of a suspicious bag left outside a church but when they took a look inside they found the litter of six one-day-old kittens.
In a post on Facebook, the sheriff's office said: "The Butler County Bomb Unit was called to a suspicious package at a church in New Miami.
"When Specialist Mike Grimes and Det. Detherage arrived, they didn't hear ticking they heard purring!
"There was a momma cat and her six one-day-old babies in a bag.
"There was a note left stating "Sprinkles" went into labour yesterday 2/17.
"Momma and babies are warm, cosy and fed at the Animal Friends Shelter!"
How cute is that?
The Animal Friends Humane Society posted on update on the cat and her kittens on Facebook, writing: "We're kicking off Feline Friday with the newest additions to our Animal Friends Family - Sprinkles and her six new-born kittens!

"When a duffel bag was found abandoned outside a church door, the Butler County Bomb Unit was called in to investigate. Inside, they found a new mom doing her best to keep her six new-born kittens warm and fed.
" The note inside the bag said the mom's name was Sprinkles, and she began giving birth at 2:00 pm on Wednesday. Sprinkles and her new-borns were immediately brought to Animal Friends for care late Thursday afternoon.
"They were all soaked in mom's urine and needed gentle baths when they arrived. Sprinkles, purring throughout it all, received 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 seven will be placed with their foster family this afternoon.
"We will give regular updates on Sprinkles and her kittens as they grow and mature over the next two months."
People have been left feeling emotional after learning about Sprinkles and her babies, with one person writing on social media: "This story had a happy ending.. and that's what matters the most. Mommy and babies are safe and being taken care of."
Another posted: "Thank God they are safe and warm. I can't imagine how the poor Momma felt birthing babies in a bag and so cold.
"Thanks for helping all and keeping them safe."
