Kittens found inside Walmart under a refrigerator ready for a home!

Posted at 9:22 AM, Jul 10, 2016

Two kittens are looking for their forever homes after being rescued from underneath a Walmart refrigerator.

Shoppers alerted a manager at a Walmart on 19th Avenue and Bell Road of faint meows coming from a refrigerator inside the store back in April. 

Upon inspection, the cats were found under one of the refrigerator units that contained sandwiches. However, the manager couldn't reach the cats so rescue crew members from the Arizona Humane Society were called in. 

The manager told rescue crews they found a home for the mother cat of the kittens a few days prior to locating the kittens, but they hadn't realized the mother cat had hidden her two offspring inside the store. 

After hours of disassembling the unit, the cats were successfully rescued; however, at their young age they were unadoptable. 

Now the cats are 12 weeks old and are looking for a home!

Grace, a gray tabby, and her brother Houdini, a cream tabby, are available for adoption today at the Sunnyslope Campus located at 9226 N. 13th Avenue.
