 Three kittens that were rescued from a boom lift in Redwood City in May are now available for adoption at the Peninsula Humane Society/Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

The kittens, named John, Wendy and Peter as a nod to Peter Pan, were trapped on May 1 inside the lift, a vehicle with a telescopic basket that lifts crews high into the air for construction work, PHS/SPCA officials said.

 Staff at the shelter used a modified bird net to safely remove the kittens one by one and bring them back down to the ground.   "Despite a rough beginning, this fluffy trio is healthy, active and ready for their forever homes," PHS/SPCA spokeswoman Buffy Martin Tarbox said in a statement.

The kittens are available at the PHS/SPCA's adoption center at 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame. The center is open for adoptions Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  The adoption fee is $120 per kitten, which includes microchipping. The kittens have each been spayed or neutered.
