Ohio police responded to a suspicious looking package at a church made an unexpected discovery – six new born kittens and their mother.
The Butler County Sheriff’s Office says its bomb squad was called to a church in New Miami on Thursday.
When the responding officers heard purring instead of ticking coming from the black bag, they used their X-ray equipment to view what was inside.
The day-old kittens and their mother were found along with a note stating they had been born on Wednesday.
“Mom’s name is Sprinkles,” the note also read. “She began giving birth at 2 p.m.”
The sheriff’s office on their Facebook page said mother and kittens “are doing well and are warm, cozy and fed.”
