Tony Miranda, a loader operator at Cal-Waste Recovery Systems in the town of Galt, said the kitten apparently survived a ride in a dump truck on Tuesday before a tractor pushed the him onto a conveyer belt.

"We put so much material in here and we run so much stuff through it," Miranda told the station. "It's just amazing to see a little kitty survive through all this."

The kitten not only found a second chance at life, but a new home after a co-worker adopted him. His new name? Murphy.
