An employee at a Regina luxury auto dealership got a surprise this week as he went out to their recycling bin and found a litter of kittens.

The employee reportedly heard meowing from the back lot on Monday and ended up diving into the bin to save 5 kittens that were hiding under cardboard and paper at the bottom of the bin.

The kittens are now safely in the dealership's finance department being nursed back to health and await adoption.

Two kittens were already named... one Mercedes and the other Benz.
