Kitten Saved From Concrete, Paint

After spending at least two days in a construction dumpster, a kitten in North Dakota is lucky to have some of her nine lives left.

Construction worker Kelly Goranson said he was working at a construction site in North Fargo when some of his co-workers heard meowing, according to a TV news station in Fargo. After checking to see if it was coming from a nearby building, the workers found the kitten in the trash bin—frozen in concrete and paint.

“There’s a reason they are so dog gone cute,” Goranson told KVLY. “I don’t know how the cat would climb up [a] 6 feet dumpster and get in.”

‘It Needs Some Help’

When he heard the meowing, he asked his boss if the crew had a cat.

“And he says yeah, we found one in the dumpster,” said Goranson, according to the news station. “So they are the ones that found it, not me.

“They just put it in a box and gave it some food but it wouldn’t eat, it could hardly move. And so after I looked at it a couple times I thought, well it’s not going to do any good just sitting there, it needs some help.

“So I decided to take some time off of work and find a home,” the Saint Cloud, ND, man reportedly said.

A Cat Named Kelly

A vet was able to get enough of the concrete off the kitten’s paws for her to be able to walk, the news station said. But the kitten—who got the name Kelly after the man saved her life—still has some concrete stuck to her.

She also has ear mites, and she’s malnourished, the news channel reported.

The cat was taken to Cat’s Cradle cat shelter in Fargo and was placed with a foster family until she is well enough to be adopted.
