Kittens stuck inside wall rescued
On the Web
WEST PARK, Fla. (WSVN) -- It took two days, but fire rescuers have freed a pair of kittens stuck inside the wall of a house.
On Wednesday, Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue used cameras to see within the wall before breaking holes big enough to reach in and grab the young felines, which are believed to be just weeks old. "Poor house; holes in the walls," said homeowner Joy Seward. "It's worth it to get them out. Hate to think about them staying up there and dying."
A day after safely plucking a black and white cat, crews took several hours to locate and rescue a gray and white cat, which they removed by initially grabbing on to its hind legs. "[They are] too small to have gotten up their by [themselves]," said Seward, who hopes to find the stray pair a good home. "I figured the mother must have brought them up in her mouth. Of course, if they tried to get down they'd fall, and somehow they got through the soffit and into the walls."
