The kittens, all boys, were brought to the Horry County Animal Care Center (HCACC) in Conway, South Carolina, for care. On Monday the shelter uploaded photos of the tiny survivors - in rough shape but now safe and warm in a foster home. "They're playing and eating," Friends of HCACC's founder Debbie Saxon told The Dodo. "But the littlest guy, he's kind of frail and weak."
The smallest kitten had to be taken to the veterinarian on Wednesday morning, but, with some extra attention, he's expected to be OK. HCACC has set up a fundraising page to cover the costs of caring for the kittens, who will need lots more care before they're ready to be adopted.
