Waste Plant Employee Saves Kitten From Compactor Doom

In Galt, California, a garbage waste treatment facility employee noticed something moving in the conveyor belt. It would seem he found a small munchkin kitten had found its way into the compactor belt and apparently, no one noticed. Heather Garcia, who quickly spotted the cat, reached out and snatched the cat from certain death in the conveyor belt.

It isn’t a rare occurrence in waste treatment facilities that animals have found themselves in conveyor belts to compactors. Most cats caught unaware inside a trash can could find themselves in the waste treatment plants. Kittens are incapable of getting themselves out quickly. Luckily, this little kitten had her life saved by a human angel.
