Tiny Kitten Rescued From Recycling Plant Conveyer Belt He was spotted by a worker sorting recyclables By Newser Editors and Wire Services Posted Dec 16, 2015 7:15 PM CST 46 comments Comments This little guy nearly got himself recycled Tuesday in California. (Uncredited) (Newser) – A worker at a Northern California recycling center saved a tiny kitten from certain death when he spotted the animal heading down a conveyor belt. Tony Miranda tells television station KCRA he was sorting recyclables Tuesday when he found the pink-nosed, white-pawed cat between the debris and scooped it up. It's not clear how the kitten got in with the trash, but it may have survived a ride in a dump truck before a tractor pushed it onto one of two conveyer belts. A call went out to employees of Cal-Waste Recovery Systems that a baby cat had been discovered at the facility in Galt, a city about 90 miles northeast of San Francisco. Another worker decided to adopt the kitten and named it Murphy.
