Carolina and Her Kittens Trapped in Moving Van



A quiet, fully furnished moving van was left in a North Carolina driveway and a very pregnant cat thought this would be the ideal place to set up a nest for the imminent arrival of her babies.

Some time thereafter, the family was en route to New Jersey where they would take up residence in Howell. Upon opening the rear of the truck, they found one lonely little kitty trying to find the rest of its litter. The newly-arrived family contacted the Society to assist them in this effort.

Society Animal Control Officer Kevin Rooney went to the scene and when he opened the rear of the van, Mom quickly escaped. The feline family had been in the moving van for awhile ... and then it was a 14 hour ride to NJ.

ACO Rooney asked for some quiet time to hear if there were any kitties and after a brief silent pause, they could hear the mewing of hungry little ones. Rooney gathered the 5 kittens and put them in a carrier for safety sake. He then shook a bag of cat food and out came running a very hungry Mom to enjoy some dinner. The food was put into a carrier and in she walked.

She is called "Carolina" and is now taking a maternity break with her kitties at the Society's Tinton Falls shelter located at 2960 Shafto Road - near the Rt. 33-34 Circle and just off Exit 102 (South) and Exit 100B (North) of the Garden State Parkway. For more information on Carolina, her kitties or the hundreds more that await for a lifetime of love, call the Society at 732-922-0100 or e-mail us.

You can also help by sending a donation to help feed the hundreds of cats at our shelters who hope to find a new family.
