If only someone was able to warn four curious kittens about imminent danger recently. “It’s a trap!” that person might have said, sparing the felines a lot of grief.
But four feral kittens went unwarned and found their way to a glue trap at an unnamed business near Atlanta, Georgia, according to Angels Among Us Pet Rescue on Facebook. For days, two of the kittens remained glued to one another, even as the other two were freed.
The organization received the kittens — still young enough to need bottle feeding — after animal control officers contacted them, and were unaware of the full back story. Initially, the group believed the kittens’ state to be an act of intentional cruelty, but a few days after they posted photos of the kittens a business owner came forward and explained what happened.
“The business who put out this trap was trying to control the rodent population and did not expect that kittens would find their way in,” a Facebook post by the pet rescue read.
A picture of cleaned-up, fluffy kittens accompanied the post, reassuring readers further that the cats were doing all right.
The next step is to trap — humanely — the feral mother cat and find her a good home, along with finding homes for all her kittens.
