A bomb squad has been called in to disable a suspicious looking bag left outside an  Ohio church – only to discover it was full of abandoned kittens. 

The incident occurred Thursday in New Miami when a staffer at the church came across the small black carrier outside the building’s front door. 

Members of the Butler County Bomb Unit quickly descended on the scene to inspect the ‘suspicious package’ but were left startled when they heard the sounds of purring coming from inside the bag. 

‘There was a momma cat and her six one-day-old babies in the bag,’ the Butler County Sheriff’s Office revealed in a Facebook post shared Saturday.

The police department went on to explain that the animals had been abandoned, and that the owner had left a note. 

‘Moms name is Sprinkles. She began giving birth at 2.00pm, Wed Feb 17th,’ the note read. 

The bomb squad then took the family of felines to the Animal Friends Human Society in nearby Hamilton, where they were tended to by volunteers. 

The update was accompanied by a series of snaps, including one which showed Sprinkles keeping guard over her six babies while inside the black bag. 

Several other snaps showed the tiny kittens being cared for by volunteers, who wrapped them up in towels. 

The kittens are now ‘warm, cozy and fed’ and will be adopted out to homes in the coming weeks.

The story heartened hundreds of people on Facebook, many of whom left comments beneath the post.  

One woman expressed sympathy for Sprinkles’ previous owner, saying the person may not have had the funds to properly provide for the new litter. 

‘Someone cared for Sprinkles and did the only thing they could think of to do, though we may all agree it could have not gone so well, I believe there’s someone who struggled and probably worried about mama and babies,’ the wrote. 

Another stated: ‘This story had a happy ending.. and that’s what matters the most. Mommy and babies are safe and being taken care of.’
