April 20 (UPI) -- Firefighters and an animal control officer in Kansas came to the rescue of three kittens that became trapped inside a wall at a hardware store.

Workers at Westlake Ace Hardware in Garden City said they heard the kittens mewling from inside a wall near the exit door and they were able to locate the animals by looking down from the attic, but were unable to reach them due to a piece of sheet metal in the way.

The rescuers cut through the sheet metal and were able to extract the trio of kittens.

The felines are now in foster care and workers at the store said they are trying to locate the mother cat for a potential reunion.
