SPANISH FORK, Utah — Seven kittens have been saved in Utah after getting stuck in a construction tractor.

Green Forest Landscaping employees heard meows coming from under their tractor on Wednesday, when they peeked inside and saw the kittens.

Video shows the workers using tools to remove the cab from the tractor. The group freed six 3-week-old kittens and after failing to find their owner in the neighborhood, they took them to a local PetSmart. A seventh kitten was discovered still inside the tractor the next day.

The kittens are with cat rescue organization Ashley Valley Community Cats, where they are being treated for upper respiratory infections.

The kittens will be up for adoption when they are old enough.
