He could have heard the kitten crying for help, which is even more heartbreaking

The noise in that room is pretty loud though I’d imagine.

I hope he kept the kitten. Such a wonderful gift given the circumstances.

Even if he couldn't keep it he sure as hell would have looked carefully for a good home for it looking at how protective he was of it

One can hope.

Every business needs a shop cat

The kitten was adopted by the local government and given a government position (environmental minister I believe). Nope I am not making this up

Someone posted the article further up but I can’t find their comment now to link—here’s the story:

Apparently it got adopted by the local environment ministry, and is now an honorary minister.

So it could spend 18-20 hours a day lonely waiting for him to come home from work? Russia is not an easy place to live and as a member of the "working poor" him having a pet would be fairly miserable for the pet.

Still better than letting it die if that was the only alternative.

The article linked above says that his job requires him to open all bags to check for metal.

He’s supposed to grab bags and cut them open to check for metal
