Tiny Kitten Rescued Seconds Before Certain Death in Compressor at Recycling Plant

This tiny kitten was undoubtedly the luckiest in the state of California on Tuesday when its life was saved in its last seconds by a quick thinking workman at a recycling plant in Galt. 

Tony Miranda is in charge of sorting the recyclables and was doing just that when he caught sight of the kitten about to run into a compressor. He was able to reach her just in time.

Workers at the plant believe that the kitten arrived via garbage truck and had already survived a tractor pushing her onto a conveyor belt and a several-foot-fall onto a second belt. 

“We put so much material in here and we run so much stuff through it. It’s just amazing to see a little kitty survive through all this. It made my day... definitely made my day,” Miranda told KCRA.
