Oct. 19 (UPI) -- A trio of kittens trapped inside a Texas apartment building wall under the mailbox enclosure were rescued after residents heard them meowing in distress.
Rescuer Tom Callahan recorded a video showing the hole the group cut under the mailbox enclosure at Mission Hill Apartments in New Braunfels.
Callahan said residents heard the felines meowing inside the wall Monday night.
The rescuers were able to lure the kittens to safety using flashlights and food.
Callahan said the kittens may have ended up trapped in the wall by traveling through a drainage area. He said the kittens' mother is known to complex residents and they are working to find the cat and locate forever homes for the kittens.
