Just an ordinary work day...rescuing a kitten!!!

July 16, 2014, A typical day on a job site, getting ready to use some of our heavy equipment. But wait what's that?  A tiny sound - that should not be coming from the inside of our tractor!(see red arrow) Meowing in fact, from a very tiny and not very happy kitten, somehow wedged deep within the machine.

Our President Steve Smith together with our crew, really wanted to get to work, but of course they had to solve a problem first.  Where was the kitten and how to carefully get him/her out ? They spotted her finally, but she was wedged very tightly in a space they could not reach.  After 2 hours they finally came up the plan using a bendable covered wire to make a soft 'hook' to delicately slide under kitty's belly and gently pull her out - unharmed!  Of course that was not the end of the story.  Steve called Gigi and asked if he could bring the kitty to the office. "Yes!" we all agreed. Steve drove little "Lucky" up to our headquarters in the only thing he had available, an empty power bar box with a towel inside.
Then with Leslie driving and Debra cradling the kitten - we drove to the Escondido Humane Society where she would get the utmost care.  It was surely a long time since she had eaten.  We thought perhaps mama cat had deposited her kittens there for safe keeping and could not retrieve this one.  Her eyes were not yet open!  All in a day's work!
