Marion County Animal Services officers made a shocking discovery while out on a call last week.
Officials say they were looking for a “confined cat” outside of a home when they heard a faint meow.
The officer followed the muffled sound to find a cardboard box with a large cinder block on top with a kitten hidden inside.
The officer ended up naming the kitten Kumquat, and he's now up for adoption.
Officials say Kumquat is about 5 months old, very purry and cuddly.
