After a refrigerator unit made strange sounds at a Walmart food-service area, a concerned customer alerted the staff. The sandwich display unit wasn’t on the blink — it was on kittens.
Two kittens stuck under a deli fridge in a Phoenix Walmart were rescued and adopted, according to the Arizona Humane Society. Emergency Animal Medical Technicians from the shelter retrieved the tiny cats this spring and brought them to the AHS, where they’ve spent the past couple of months until reaching an adoptable age.
The store manager said staff had found the kittens’ mom a home a few days prior to the kittens’ discovery. At that time, however, they didn’t know she was a mother.
AHS technician Jujului “Juju” Kuita was able to retrieve the tiny cats with kitchen ladles from the store. She worried they’d been away from their mother too long and might not make it, but the pair pulled through with some TLC.
The two kittens were mere weeks old when retrieved and not yet adoptable. When Grace and Houdini, as the hidden duo had been deemed, turned 12 weeks of age they were adopted into a local family’s home, according to AHS.
Walmart can be filled with many unusual sights and sounds. The next time we come across one, however, we’re going to investigate.
