The kittens were so young, they still had their umbilical cords attached, according to the Cox Communications worker who found them. The small cats had survived a trip from Los Angeles to the San Diego-area warehouse.

According to reports, 34-year veteran employee J.C. Collins opened a routine shipment of fiberglass equipment and to his surprise found the mewing, pawing kittens. Collins called a family member who works with the San Diego Humane Society for help.

The kittens, nicknamed Mouse and Wifi, are living in a nursery at the humane society. Workers there speculated that the kittens' mother must have tucked them away in a safe spot, the box which eventually was packed up and sent to the Cox warehouse.

Caretakers say the kittens are now "fat and happy." When they reach 8 weeks of age, they'll be spayed/neutered and put up for adoption.

Those poor little things. I wish people would be more careful. Im sure those kittens must have been meowing. Why didn't they see or hear the kittens in the box? Thank goodness they will be okay.
