The fluffy bundles started their journey in Scotland and travelled 500 miles to a housing development in Totnes, Devon. “It was a fairly routine morning when we started to inspect the new machinery,” said site manager Ivor Coombes. “I heard a faint noise coming from inside the piling machine and decided to go and investigate. I never in my wildest dreams expected to see kittens, especially in the engine of such a noisy machine.”
