“They actually came to us with their umbilical cord still attached,” said Jenny Bonomini, manager of the Kitten Nursery, in a statement posted on the Humane Society's website. “What we think happened was the mom had the babies and she put them in a safe spot . . . and she left. Then they got boxed up and they got shipped.”

Once healthy, the cats will be sent to a foster home.
