We’ve heard that everyday bravery could possibly save the life of another. What happened between three garbagemen and a little kitten is proof of this.


Two garbagemen were out on their rounds clearing trash bins around the neighborhood when they heard a sharp but very faint meow. They thought it was coming from the pile of trash in the truck but they couldn’t see anything. Both men were wondering how did a kitten get in there? Could it have been dumped by someone? They decided they had to try and save the little creature so they started to clear the corners of the truck out but still couldn’t find him.

The job was too much for them alone so they enlisted the help of a 3rd colleague to help them locate the buried kitten. A shovel and a broom were used to navigate the 5-ton heap of trash.


Their team effort paid off and 30 minutes later they uncovered the buried kitten and immediately headed for the local animal shelter to get the help this little kitten needed.


The kitten has now regained his strength and health and is in good hands thanks to the perseverance of three brave garbagemen. He was instantly adopted by one of the staff working at the shelter and is now happily living with his new owner in his forever home.


This little kitten needed a hero – thankfully he found three of them!
