Kittens Mysteriously Found Living In The Walls Are Safely Rescued

When you move into an apartment complex, don’t be surprised if you hear your neighbors through your walls. Be VERY surprised when you hear them IN the walls!!!

A resident in Grapevine, Texas was shocked when she heard meowing coming from behind the walls of her home.

She contacted the Grapevine Animal Shelter and Adoption Center who teamed up with the local police department to launch a rescue mission for the mysterious meowing.

Pulling out the high-tech equipment, the officers used thermal imaging to find just where the cries were coming from. With approval from the apartment complex, the rescuers carefully cut a hole in the wall to pull the kittens to safety.

Three young kittens, only a few weeks old, were found.

It’s amazing that they’d been living in the building’s structure unknown for that long! They don’t know if the litter had been born behind the walls or perhaps had gotten in somehow seeking shelter from the outdoors.

The kittens were taken to the animal shelter for exams and a good “home-fed” meal. Mama cat is still eluding the apartment managers as they attempt to trap her as well. She is very sneaky and reportedly keeps escaping into the ceiling and attic of the complex.

They won’t give up until mama is back safe with her babies though. Hopefully the family will all find a new adoptive home, now safely on the right side of the walls!

  1. Years ago, I had 2 Momma kitties. I had them each their own bed, but they kept stealing each others babies. Finally after a few days of that, one of the Momma’s decided to climb into the attic and took the babies in the crawl space between the chimney and the brick wall covering the outside of the chimney. We heard them and found them an their route to get down there. Our kids were in the 4th and 6th grades and were both up for adventure soooooooo. I laid next to the hole in the attic floor… our daughter by my feet, their dad down on the ground to place kittens in a crate,,, and I lowered our son to a ledge that was about two feet above the kittens. He, one by one, picked up a kitten, climbed the two ft of chimney brick and handed me the kitten, which was then handed to my daughter, who handed the kitten to her dad, who placed it in a crate, and the line started again until all 8 kittens were safe. Once the Momma’s came back, they were each put in their own crate and we separated the kittens to be reunited with their Mommas… Good memories…brave children… family fun when you have cats.
