Tony Miranda is in charge of sorting through thousands of cans, bottles, and bits of paper in a recycling center. He's seen some odd items come down his conveyor belt, but he was shocked one day when he spotted a pink-nosed kitten among the debris heading into the compactor. He quickly scooped the tiny kitten out of the trash. The poor thing was seconds away from being crushed to death.
But after enduring that horrible ordeal, the kitty received the best holiday gift of all -- a loving home!
It's a good thing Miranda was so attentive on the job that day. If he hadn't been so vigilant, this kitten's story would've had a heartbreaking ending.
