Two tiny kittens were rescued from an unusual place. They were discovered in a nest in a tree, and their mother was nowhere to be found.
On September 12, a Los Angeles based rescue group, SMART, had one of their most unusual rescues to date.
They received a call about crying kittens trapped in a tree. One of the rescuers, Nav, was dispatched to the area right away. "When Nav arrived, the tree was merely 10 feet tall," the rescue group wrote on Facebook.
Nav located the kittens and set up a ladder at 6 feet, tall enough to reach the babies.
As he parted the branches, he saw two tiny kittens napping in a little nest in the center of the tree. "I wouldn't believe it if I wouldn't have seen it," he said.
"Two abandoned, unweaned kittens were in what appeared to be a nest in the middle of the tree."
According to the rescue group, the cat mom had not been seen for two days.
The kittens were in a tight little hiding spot.
The rescuer carefully scooped up the kittens and brought them down from the tree.
They placed the kittens in a carrier and found them a foster home where they would be bottle fed and cared for around the clock.
