A neighborhood kitten was rescued Sunday by the Lauderhill Fire Department after being stuck in a wall for days.
Its an excitement for everybody but we are glad the kittens are out and safe, said Alberta Peterson, sister of the cats owner.
The family had been hearing the cat for days and was unable to rest, and they decided to call 911. Fire rescue crews made various holes in the house but they were not able to locate the cat.
It took two agencies and approximately 10 firefighters to get this kitten from a wall, it was pretty well hidden said Lieutenant Jerry Gonzalez.
Finally, firefighters had to insert a camera through the wall to find the kitten.

Curiosity ALMOST killed that little guy.
I remember when I was a kid, I had to stay at my house alone for a week because my Dad was away for national guard, and my mom had to travel out of town to visit a sick relative, and there was some kind of animal trapped behind my bedroom walls. I’m not sure what it was, but it scratching and pounding like crazy to get out. It was definitely too big to be a mouse or even a squirrel.
It would often make a loud moaning noise like a sick cow. I remember it scared so much hearing it every night for a week, but I think it freaked me out even more when it finally grew quiet because I knew it was dead.
Missed him by THAT much, Chief!
What a horribly sad story. Didn’t you tell anyone or check it out later?
Ancient stuff like that makes us feel guilty, in spite of ourselves - even when it was absolutely not our fault and there was nothing we could do to help the situation. I think everyone has similar experiences like that which are just a part of living and being human.
All in all, it’s just another cat in the wall...
Creepy when Poe writes it. Sad when it's a real kitty.
Cute little kitten!:)=^..^=
That is a very frightening and sad story, MNDude. Pretty horrible week for a little kid...
And I was thinking of “The Cask of Amontillado”.
Gee, I can’t help but think how lucky that kitty was to be a kitty and not a human baby in an abortion clinic.
Thinking Edgar Allen Poe
That too. Poe’s stories are the place to go for morbid - there or Pelosi’s legislation.
We got a stray kitty once and kept it inside until it would calm down. I went on a business trip and the kitty came up missing. I called home several times. Then late at night, I called one final time. My son said “hold on, I hear something.” Turns out the cat had gotten into the sock drawer and someone closed it. Worse, she was between the drawer and the back of the dresser. Just small enough not to get crushed. Woof. Turned out to be a beautiful cat.
Lucky escape! Glad you got a furbuddy out of the deal.
How many holes? I hope they aren’t renters....
“Uhhhh...it was that way when we got here.”
“Y’all got a heck of a rodent problem heah...”
Yeah, we used to play fetch & catch out in the yard with gumball seed pods. Sometimes late at night she would come up and reach out at me and gently comb my beard with her claws, just to see if I was still with it. Furbuddy fer sure.
We don't need no cat control.......
Our 17 year old cat was found in our wall. We named him “Walter” in honor of his discovery.
Awwww....so cute. Glad they found him....
