A worker at a plant nursery was surprised when he saw two tiny motherless kittens rolling out of a pile of garden clippings from one of the trucks.

Meet Baby and Sweetie!

The two tiny feline siblings were found at a plant nursery in Delray Beach, FL that sells wholesale plants. The fur babies somehow ended up in one of their delivery trucks.

They brought them to the shed and gave them water. The person who fed a few feral cats living at the nursery, was on vacation at the time, so the guys weren't sure what to do with the kittens.

Carmen Weinberg, founder of Animal Friends Project, happened to pass the nursery on her way to the post office and decided to stop in as she had seen feral cats around the area and thought she would offer some help with spaying and neutering.

Immediately the employees told her about the kittens. "They were still nursing kittens and they were not eating solid food yet. I told the worker I could take them and care for them," Carmen told Love Meow.

One of the workers placed the kittens in a plastic tub and handed them to Carmen. "He was happy to see the kittens go to a safe home. He said that if they had not rolled out of the garden clippings, that they could have gone through the shredder."

Once home, Carmen put the kittens on a heating pad and started bottle feeding them as she had no idea how long the kittens had gone without food.

The 3-week old kittens most likely were separated from their mother when the truck was collecting garden debris.

"Once we cleaned them, we saw how beautiful they were," Carmen told Love Meow.

Noemi, Carmen's sister, took on the role as their foster mom and began nursing and caring for them around the clock.

"She had to get up every 2 to 3 hours at night to feed them. She took them (to work) with her when she had meetings."

It was a time consuming and laborious task to bottle feed these kittens, but seeing them grow and thrive made everything worth it.

Before she knew it, the two feline siblings nestled their way into her heart.

"The kitties are doing extremely well. My sister adopted them. She could not let them go after having spent so many days and nights caring for them," Carmen told Love Meow.

"They turned out to be beautiful long hair cats. They are also super friendly."

Baby, in particular, loves the kittens that her human brings home to foster and always offers a helping paw.

"She lets them play with her and teaches them cat etiquette. She also loves to eat (steal) the kitten food. She is a character. Sweetie is more quiet but loves to be rubbed in the stomach."

The two sisters just turned three years old. They have blossomed into gorgeous fluffy cats.

What a difference a second chance can make!
