Local Farm Hires Cats to Clean-Up Milk Spill

“Every farm ought to be doing this” says James Fitzgerald.

For years James had a problem on his Wisconsin Farm.

Every time he transports milk from the cows to truck there’s always a lot of milk that spills along the way. How much you ask? “In the ballpark of 500 gallons of milk” Jim says looking at the milk leaking out onto the asphalt pavement. “It took all day to clean up that much milk which eats away at my thin profit margins.”

And then one day as he was visiting his friend Greg Alphadon he got an idea. He noticed his friend had a cat that always drank milk. Why not use a thousand kittens to clean up the milk for him?

“It was a no brainer. I looked around the nearest town in Green Bay and found 10 families looking to donate so I got all 1,000 kittens and sent them to work. They cleaned up the spill within minutes. I was amazed!”

Even the truck driver of the 50,000-gallon tanker was amazed to see thousands of cats licking up the spill next to his truck.

“I’ve never seen so many kittens in my life” McCavoy Kensington said as several cats scratched away the thread on the lower half of his pants. “Everyone dairy farmer should do this, it would be much simpler than hiring an engineer to fix the equipment.”
