NEW MIAMI, Ohio - A bomb squad called to check out a “suspicious bag” at a church in New Miami, Ohio, made a furry discovery: newborn kittens and their mother.

When responding officers heard purring instead of ticking in the bag, they used x-ray equipment to see what was inside, discovering the felines.

The six kittens and cat were found Thursday, Feb. 18, inside an abandoned duffle bag with a note, “Mom’s name is Sprinkles. She began giving birth at 2:00 p.m., Wed. Feb. 17th.”

Sprinkles and her kittens were taken to the Animal Friends Humane Society and checked out by veterinarians, given baths and vaccines.

Staff say Sprinkles is being a great mom, doing a “fantastic job nursing and caring for her babies.” She and her kittens were placed with a foster family over the weekend.
