    These two kittens are just a few weeks old, but they’ve already taken the trip of a lifetime.

    A worker at Cox Communications in San Diego County discovered the kittens inside a box of equipment. They had been accidentally packed up and shipped from Cox Communications in Hollywood.

    Somehow, they survived the journey to San Diego.

    The kittens, named Mouse and WiFi, are now being cared for at the San Diego Humane Society’s 24-Hour Kitten Nursery. Humane Society workers believe the mother cat was looking for a safe, warm place for her babies and put them in the box.

    San Diego Humane Society public relations manager Kelli Schry said it’s a miracle the kitties survived.

    “They were just a few days old, and at that young age kittens have to be fed every two hours,” she said via email.

    Mouse and WiFi will be available for adoption when they are 8 weeks old.
