Apartment residents rescue kittens trapped in wall under mailboxes
SAN ANTONIO (SBG SAN ANTONIO) - Curiosity didn't kill the cat, but it probably trapped a few kittens over the weekend.
Three kittens were confined inside a mailbox enclosure at the Mission Hill Apartments in New Braunfels.
Tom Callahan tells us there is an empty space under the mailboxes and behind a stone wall where residents began to hear meowing on Monday night.
When the residents realized the meowing was coming from under the mailboxes, they removed a metal panel and coaxed three small kittens out of the area using flashlights and food.
Callahan said the animals may have accessed the enclosed space through a drainage area and likely just got stuck. He says their momma is known to roam the apartment complex. They're now working to rescue her, too.
Good Samaritans are now working to find forever homes for the three lucky kittens.
