Stray Kittens Are Rescued From Underneath Walmart Refrigerators

Most people know that you can find just about anything at Walmart, even if you’re not looking for it. From fresh produce and snacks to clothing and electronics, they’ve got it all! This past April, however, the employees at a Walmart in Arizona discovered something that definitely didn’t belong on their shelves: a stray cat.

Only, the real surprise came a little while after the cat was taken to the Arizona Humane Society and found a home.

Just as the employees at Walmart thought things had returned to normal, they found the cat had left something behind under a refrigerated sandwich display…

In Phoenix, Arizona, Walmart shoppers became concerned after they heard meowing, but couldn’t place where it was coming from. After the store manager traced the noise to a sandwich display, they called the Arizona Humane Society for help.

The Humane Society’s Emergency Animal Medical Technicians (EAMTs) used a device called a “snake cam” in order to get a better view on the situation under the refrigerated unit—and they were shocked. There, among the wires and debris under the refrigerator unit, were two teeny, chilly kittens!

The store manager noted that they’d found the mother cat in the store days before and sent her off to a new home. Unfortunately, they had no idea that she’d left two kittens behind! Through the camera, they realized just how young the kittens were. That is, they were far too young to be separated from their mother!

“After several hours of disassembling the display unit, EAMTs Juju and Ruthie Jesus were able to reach the kittens and rescue them from their frigid fate,” the Humane Society said in a press release. Juju agreed with Ruthie when she told Today News that “it was the tightest position I have ever seen.”

Thanks to the Humane Society’s efforts, these kittens were able to see the light of day—and everyone was relieved that they were alive and well, despite being stuck in such a cold place for so long.

The kittens, a gray female named Grace and her cream-colored brother, Houdini, were still too young to be adopted, so they were set up in a foster home by the Humane Society. Twelve weeks later, they grew into adorable little cats, ready for their forever homes!

Not surprisingly, it wasn’t long before they found their new families. The two now enjoy safe and happy lives in the comfort of their new homes in Phoenix. The Humane Society provided all of their medical needs, too!
