    Felines accidently sent from South Carolina to Vermont in returned package.


    VEGENNES, Va. - A worker in the returns department at Country Home Products got a surprise when he opened a brush trimmer sent back from South Carolina.
    Inside the box was the trimmer — and five kittens.

    The three-week-old kittens survived the two-day trip to Vermont and are doing fine.

    The South Carolina customer who returned the trimmer had stored it in a barn, and apparently sealed the box without looking inside.

    The kittens were taken to a Humane Society shelter in Middlebury, where they met Hazel, a black cat whose kittens had just been weaned. Hazel is a now a surrogate mother to the kittens.

    The shelter says the kittens should be available for adoption in about three weeks.

    I'm so glad the kittens are ok. I guess it's possible to just tape up the box w/o looking. I know if I was returning something, I'd double check what I was sending back one more time.

    First of all, if I had a box stored in a barn...I'd be checking for snakes before I touched it! I too would check the box before taping it shut.:confused:
