A litter of four kittens was rescued from the extreme heat by two caring law enforcement officers who discovered them in a box at the side of a road in South Florida. The temperatures of last Thursday hit 91 degrees (32.8 degrees C).

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office wrote via Facebook: "At 2:46 this afternoon, Captain Keith Day and Deputy Justin Adams were patrolling in the area of Santa Maria Dr. and S. Tamiami Trail. Captain Day saw a cardboard box off to the side of the road. Inside the box was a litter of kittens that had been abandoned. The kittens are currently enjoying the comfort of Captain Day's car (and air conditioning) as they await the arrival of Lee County Domestic Animal Services."

All four kittens have been placed in foster care. They were a bit shy and "hissy" when they arrived in the shelter, but they appeared to be healthy.

The kittens are 3-4 weeks old and will be put up for adoption when they are ready.

Four tiny kittens were rescued during a near-record hot day by two caring law enforcement officers.

"Captain Keith Day and Deputy Justin Adams were patrolling in the area of Santa Maria Dr. and S. Tamiami Trail. Captain Day saw a cardboard box off to the side of the road. Inside the box was a litter of kittens that had been abandoned."

They transported the kittens to a nearby rescue group. The kittens got to enjoy the car ride in Captain Day's car and the comfort of the air conditioning. 

Look at those fabulous whiskers! 

They are a bit shy and "hissy" but all got a clean bill of health.

These kitties have been placed in foster care and will be available for adoption when they are old enough.
