Deserted kittens rescued from attic
According to the Arizona Humane Society, kittens were abandoned by the mother cat.
PHOENIX – There was a very unusual find in an attic in Phoenix that was caught on camera.
Four kittens were reportedly left in an attic by their mother. The Arizona Humane Society’s Emergency Animal Medical Technicians (EAMTS) have taken action to save the little ones.
EAMT Andy Gallo used a ladder to reach an area where he could cut an opening to save the kittens. But as you can see in the video above, they were still out of reach.
And that’s not all. The rescue was made even more difficult as the kittens buried themselves in the narrow space. One of the kittens had also wiggled into a loose pipe. In total, it took over an hour and a half to get them all out.
