Default Boxcar kittens make 5-day trek from Chicago to Edmonton with no food or water

"The Edmonton Humane Society (EHS) has a couple of scared and dirty – but fortunate – kittens on its hands, after an Edmonton man found the tiny critters in a sealed CN train boxcar that journeyed from Chicago to Edmonton earlier this week.

Shawna Randolph of the Edmonton Humane Society said she’s never seen a pet story like this one.

“We’re amazed they survived, with no sign of food or water for so many days,” said EHS Communications spokesperson, Shawna Randolph."

Hope they get a good home when they're ready to be adopted.
