Patrick & Paul, tasked with fixing the roof at a block of high-rise flats, noticed the industrial skip on the site had become home to a couple of cute stowaways.
Patrick, said: “I opened the door of the skip & there was a cat in there, then we noticed it had a couple of kittens.
“The skip was getting ready to be taken away this morning so we tried to get the kittens out but they moved to the back where it was hard to get them.
“My mate Paul is into cats & said he couldn’t sleep last night thinking about it.
“We came in this morning & the skip was all locked up ready to go so I said let’s just open it up & check one more time.”
Patrick said that when they opened up the skip the frightened cat & kittens had crawled to the back of the skip again.
He said: “My mate said we can’t let the skip go as they’ll get crushed so we got a few of the lads from the site to stop working and the site manager came down.
“We all mucked in and eventually we were able to get the kittens out.”
