She stuck her hand in and felt around, then drew back in horror.
“I grabbed a tail,” she said, as both of us conjured up visions of a very large rat.
Helen reached in one more time ... and drew out, by its back this time, a tiny (as in fitting into the palm of your hand) cream-colored male tabby kitten. It was dirty, flea-bitten, hungry, scared ... and I wished I had a camera handy to record the look on Helen’s face. I knew at that instant we had another member of the family.
They had the kitten checked out by a vet and patched the hole with duct tape.
I was out shopping a couple of hours later, when my cell phone rang. It was Ryan. “Dad, Mom just pulled another cat out of the wall. “Welcome to the family,” I thought.
The kittens, estimated to be around three weeks old, are being fed formula and kitten food. They have been named Boo and Waldo. Helen Bailey says she doesn’t need anything else for Mothers Day. http://www.gadsdentimes.com/article/20080511/NEWS/74610976/1049/LIFETIMES -via Fark
